In for 5. Thanks for posting.

Ubehebe figured out the date codes in post 25. These are probably the best bang for the buck that Ive yet to see for any 18650’s, so grab em while you can. I paid more for 10 laptop packs (80 Samsung ICR18650-28A cells) and have not had a single bad one.

I bought battery pack contain purple samsung batteries in it.. so far is great, non of them is dud Smile
the cheapest one I bought in the past was 6 for $17 and I thought it was a good deal.
but this one? definitely awesome deal! :bigsmile:
sigh.. part of me want to be greedy… part of me screamed what $#@!! you need more batteries for? Tired
but if you don’t have that many battery for your flashlights… definitely need to get several of these ( great to include when giving away cheap flashlight to your friends and relatives Smile )

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

I just put in for another 10 packs. These are heavy duty cells and will probably survive a dead short without a catastrophic failure (but no guarantees Wink ). I resale flashlights by the ton and have over 80 of these cells out in the field to local customers without a single complaint.

There’s still plenty left. Grab em up guys!

I feel like I should just go all out, and get 5 more packs, for a total of 10 packs and be good for the next few years. Not even sure what I can do with the 5 packs/40cells I ordered already, besides use about 16 of those cells to build a nice battery pack. As for the other 24 cells, I guess as backups to all my lights that already have all panasonic 3400mah cells in them. I actually feel cheated buying the panasonic 3400 about 6 months ago, even though I paid around $80 for only 10 of them. For the same $80 I could have 64 of these samsung cells. Yeeeesh!!! I need to stop thinking about it like that!

It seems very rare that a deal like this ever comes around!

Why buy more cells that you cant use? Buy more lights instead. :bigsmile: The 80 I just got will be gone in less than a year.

Good point. When I start seeing more SRK's go for $10 I sure will!!! That's the equivalent of about what these batteries are costing me! Heck, the 4 panasonic 3400 in my SRK cost more than my SRK did! Not too many lights have peaked my interest lately. Got my eyes set on a Sunwayman D40A that doesn't even take 18650's lol, but I have ton's of Eneloop XX and regular Eneloops with nothing to put them in!

I guess I could always buy this 10 x 18650 Power Bank DIY Components with Dual USB Output for $17.40 with all the extra batteries I will have. Never know when you need some juice!

They wouldn’t fit anyway… Wink
It’s just a little frustrating sometimes, that there are no such deals for the Divided States of Europe Silly

lucky you with your 4.3v super-saiyan i4, I have never got my i4 v2 to ever get a battery to 4.3v, but always gets them to exactly 4.23-4.25v...

That being said, I ordered 1 more for 6 total, as when this deal runs out, it looks like we may never see it again! 22 hours left. I set, done ordering for good now!

I combined 3 of those packs (in parallel) last year for my SRK bike light. Just be aware that after loading fresh cells, they might require a momentary input voltage through the 2 wires to reset the protection circuit before you can use them each time. I charged my cells in the cradles so it wasnt a problem.

Daylighter, do they make a 8x18650 8.4V battery holder like you linked? And is that pack compatible with this 5.5mmx2.1mm plug for both powering the bike light and recharging the battery pack?

Oh dear, Oh dear.

I about choked on my breakfast when I read this and saw how many have sold… I sincerely hope he wanted to move this inventory because almost 3x the amount of packs have sold in the last 12 hours from what he sold in the previous 4 days of the sale.

In retrospect I probably should have e-mailed the vendor before posting…

Why would you ever wanna do that? The vendor might try to take advantage of us BLF'ers if he knew beforehand. He would not have had the sale if he didn't want to move the product!

There are 3 ghostly stamps visible beneath the wrapper.

Does not seem to jive with Ubehebe’s decryption, but perhaps someone can interpret?

4 of those back to back is $40+, or would I be better just soldering and using this

Protection Circuit Module (PCM) with Equilibrium Function for 7.4V Li-Ion Battery Pack

with shipping it only comes to $22 and it would also BALANCE the batteries. Would this not be better for building a 16x18650 battery pack? Can that PCM with equilibrium even handle 16x18650 wired to it?

I was a small business owner too. Sometimes you put things on sale at a loss to get people in the store where they will also buy regularly priced merchandise… But this is more brick and mortar store mentality.

I don’t think he would taken advantage of anyone. He has a lot of ASUS stuff and more than likely just needed to move this inventory. I’m just empathizing for when he runs out of shipping supplies this morning!
