New Hi-Max 18650 2600mAh discharge results.....

Well I finally got my Hi-max 18650 2600mAh cells in today and i'm a happy camper Smile They they ended up being about 50-150mah better than my xtar 2600 cells! They ended up going 2502mah. Not to bad for a $6 battery (shipping included) Thanks 4570 for recommending these. Test was done using a Imax B6 clone 1A discharge and 3v cutoff.

I have a set of 4 of those and they have been great so far, but a little long for some applications (like my laser).

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

Are the hi-max longer as the XTAR 2600?

Light up the darkness.

My highly scientific eyeball says their the same, my flashlight says the xtars are slightly longer.

I ordered a 6-pack from this ebay seller (as I was directed to them by someone here at BLF).

They didn't seem too absolutely in a rush to ship them out, it's been 6 days and I still don't have a tracking number. They are estimating a 21-30 day shipping time in their ad.

i have six of these, and LOVE them

way better than those garbage Trustfire flames (ive had bad luck)

 

however, size is an issue in my C2's and my Aurora's... so i kept the good Trustfire flames for those.

bah

Those spec out really good, Even my fresh new TF Flames from DX could only muster 2250-2300mAH when run to only 3v. And good to see you only pushed the cells to 3v as i find it a much better real world number than 2.5v many people will run their cells down too so they can try and meet the specs.

Price is really good, But im spoiled by free shipping when ordering from China anymore.

Im wondering if you have done any high amp draw testing runs to see how they handle 3-5amps? If you feel thats to harsh i understand, I wouldn't do it to many of my cells either.

Sorry I didnt capture the curve. The Hi-max put out....

2273 @ 5A discharge to 2.8v cutoff

I  think they are the best budget based battery on the market. I just wish more people sold them.
