New Xtar 2600 discharge results....

Hey everyone,

Just figured I would post my results. Nothing new, just more confrimation they are good cells! Tests where done charging the Xtar 2600 protected 18650 batteries at 1.5A on a Imax B6 clone. With a generic laptop power supply rated at 6A 15v. This was the batteries first cycle

Discharged at 1A = 2445mah 3V cutoff

I am currently doing a .2A discharge, we will see what the results are in about 12 hours

Thanks for the test. Those are great numbers. Can you please do a 3A discharge test when you have time? Its also nice to see the protection circuit actually working, but will be more interesting to see how it performs at the more demanding 3A current level.

Rated capacity is determined by a .2C (in this case 520mA since its a 2600 mAh cell) discharge. Those are too long for me, let alone a 12 hour discharge. Smile

Interesting, I just finished the .2A discharge = 2448mah I figured it would go a little longer. I guess this shows a low resistance cell? I should point out at 1A discharge the battery was barley warmer than the air temp. I'm pretty new to all this so I don't know if this is normal.

The 3v cutoff is actually set on the charger not the battery, but everything I have seen states the PCB's on these batteries do work.

FlashPilot, sorry the B6 only goes up to 1A for discharge tests, I guess thats really the only downside to this charger but considering its $20 price tag I can live with it Smile
