Nice charger! Too bad there won’t be a deal coming from Xtar, the MAP mafia.

Yep, the MAP mafia sucks dick. I got the first one for a really good price. The second cost me more from the same USA seller because he was paranoid he would lose his authorized dealer status. Oh well. That said, I will always shop for the best price and service regardless of the bullshit MAP enforcing manufactures! Stand together my friends and say no to MAP!!!!!

What are your plans for the new stash of cells?

Correction: Daylighter I think you most certainly do have a problem. Big Smile

I present [picture of a ridiculous amount of flashlights] as evidence.

… Ryan is correct.

Big Smile

Quite an impressive group of lights. I thought that my collection that is slowly dominating my computer desk was pretty massive.. Nope.

Sometime ago there was a thread where members showcased their collections. One member filled a 3 or 4 shelves corner cabinet. That may rival this collection.

what about a Post where you sum up some Infos about pulling cells from Laptop batteries?
the Math – good manufacturers – how to open them …
maybe a list which cells has been found in which battery
and so on…

Wink

I was thinking the same thing if there was enough interest, but as blfdemigod can attest my math is sometimes a bit fuzzy…

Noob Question

 

What Dremel attachment is best for deburring the pulled cells?

Atbglenn, are those 4 batteries the ones from the Asus pack that Crank posted a link to? Seems like every time I look into one of these pulls the seller is out of that model but they show in stock for $9.99 so it must be a different one…?

It's the pull from the $9.99 8 cell Asus battery pack everyone is talking about. I should have bought more, but this was the first time I ever bought a laptop battery pack to cannibalize for the 18650 cells. Turned out way better than I expected

I just ran one of these salvaged Samsung ICR18650-28A cells through my West Mountain CBA-II battery analyzer. With a fixed 2A discharge rate, I got 2.33 Ah, 8.26Wh.

I charged the cell on my Efest Luc V4 charger to about 4.2V.

My measurement is right in line with HKJs review , so these cells are still operating at pretty much 100% of their original capacity.

Thank you, Siskiyou, for sharing this deal.

Thanks for confirming that we hit the 18650 jackpot, the motherlode, the holy grail!!! Highly doubt this deal will ever be beat!

before I grabbed these I snagged 4 packs for 40$ from the original thread last year . the difference was the other pack was a 6 cell pack  total was 1.66 per cell while these were 1.25  prior the best deal was probably the reverand  jim panasonic 2200 mah for 1.75 .

 I didn't need more of these .... but at this price the only mistake is not buying more than you need.

You could have 48 of these batteries

or ....

8 panasonic 3400's

 

   8 x 3400=  27,200

48 x 2800= 134,400

 

5 times the power for the same money

6 times the number of cells

3 times as many war wounds

2 times as much fun

1 time opportunity
