Hey xxxman

When you tear a pack apart write down the manufacture the model 3 and what cells came out of which pack . that was / is still the reason for this thread . the info will possibly be helpful to another member .

Great pic with lots of pretty colors Smile

i see sonys sanyos lg’s ….purplr panasonic 16650’s /17650’s probably from a sony laptop pack( thought it kind of odd to find pannasonic cells in an oem sony laptop pack )

i have a ton of packs that dont work in laptops.
good ones are saved to fix up laptops we get in and refurb.
but these “bad” packs are going to get torn down once we get this big board build done.
btw most packs are built by companies who specialize in such.
i had an oem sony pack that was new but the latches were broke.was built by simplo.had panasonic 3100’s in it.12 of them!
i wish i had the idea to log the info here.talk about a winner!

Very nice thread. Didn’t know it existed.
My last batch was not as worthwhile as past finds. Had 6 die on the charger and several red ones (no markings) generate too much heat to feel safe using, charging @ 0.5A. Have yet to check capacity of the survivors of this batch.

Previous batches were pretty successful with most rate over 2000mAh and 10+ up to 2700mAh.

Will certainly take notes from now on to see if there is info I can offer.

Have used and upgraded several items around the house.
Shark 20V hand vacuum
Portable O2Cool fan
Harborfreight 3W spotlight to 6 cell.
Just install a 5.5×2.1mm connector and use my balance charger on them.

3100’s as in 3,100 mAh You sure about that?

Twelve of them would be 137Wh, which would be well over the 100Wh limit placed by various safety regs.

New here but I pulled 6x Samsung ICR18650-26D 2600maH out of a Dell PT434 and it read 11.1v 56Wh manufactured Feb 2009

Is anyone else getting charged from their local bulk e-waste centers for these old laptop batteries by the pound? They told me they could sell it to me for $1.20 per pound because that’s what they sell it to scrappers for or so they say. This is the only e-waste center for at least 30 miles and majority of the corporations send their packs to them so they do have many newer ones. That breaks down to less than $1 per 6-cell pack. Is it worth it?

hp td09
9 samsung icr-18650-28a.
lilac.
btw a battery shop near me gives me tool and laptop packs.
they do not have a buyer for them in less than container loads.
and everyone there uses 18650 now.i make sure they have a lifetime supply and a good charger.
they even make sure that any battery device they buy can use 18650 natively or i can mod it to.
talk about spreading the disease!

i wound up with 300 6 cell aftermarket packs condaining dlg d18650.
they were all at 3.6x v and testing them at 1a all i tested were over 2200mah.
2 years later ones i have built into items are still fine.
these were new packs that had sat a while then brought for recycling by a business associate.
sold a lot to the flea market flashlight dealers at several large markets here.nothing but good reports.

The dlg’s where at 2.4/2.7 volts, they are being charged right now. Unfortunately the Samsung’s are around 1.9 volts, I’ll try to charge them carefully, I hope they’ll recover..

masione outlet on ebay.
dell e64xx 6 cell “5200” mah
this was a dud pack.seller sent replacement and didnt want it back.
so teardown time!
lo and behold 6 +fp 18650 1800mah green cells.
testing them now but it appears 5200mah is a big fat lie!
edit.these cells are averaging 1811.
cells truthfully marked but pack capacity grossly overstated!

Contained 8×18650 cell – marked as ZD ICR18650 SY.
Nothing more…..any idea of who makes these ? Only thing i can find online is ZD refering to Zhongdao…….

Any thoughts welcome – they are wrapped in a dark blue.

Hello BLF,
I have an Acer 1810TZ Notebook from 2009, and the Accu-Pack UM09E36 wont charge at Least, so i open it now, after i found this Thread. So i will Tell what i Found, for your List at Page 1.

I found 6 Cells and 4 Of them have 3,48V and 2 have 0V

The Pack was Ratet with 11,1V 5600mah

At the Wrap (Orange) from the Cell it stand Sanyo UR18650ZT N25A

The Internet say: Sanyo UR18650ZT 2800mAh (4,3V)

I have in December giftet my first 18650 Flashlight, so i dont have a Li-Ion Charger right now, i charge at the Moment in the Flashlight(s), so i cant say anything about the Rest Capacity. When i have buy a Charger, i test the cells and post it.

Greets Basty

P.s. Sorry for my bad English!

I don’t see the Dell 60Wh Type T54FJ in your table. It contains 6 X LGABC21865 4.35 volt 2800mAH cells. Here is a link to a post on them: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/922183 I’ve gotten a couple packs of these for free from work. I guess charging to 4.2V they will be 2500mAH to 2600mAH and I’m ok with that for free! It sure beats the Crapfires. They come from Dell 6420 – 6430 laptops.
lygte-info.dk has a review of them titled LG 18650 C2 2800mAh (Orange) I cannot get a link to that review to work here for anything.

Several pulls from the past few weeks

IBM 92P1073 9 Green SE US18650GR (2550 mAh)
Lenovo 121TS040C 6 Red SANYO UR18650 L31C (2600 mAh)
Lenovo Thinkpad 42T4911 6 Grey LGABB41865 K123E037AC (2600 mAh)
3 – Lenovo Thinkpad 42T4791 6 Red SANYO UR18650FM R1122 (2600 mAh)
2 – Lenovo Thinkpad 45N1001 6 Red w blue top SANYO UR18650FM R1122 (2600 mAh)
Dell type 6Y270 14.8V 2200mAh = 4 red KA6FJ25 046676 (??? mAh) + 2 Spacers (sticker says made in Japan)
*Dell type PC764 11.1V 56Wh = 6 pink Samsung ICR18650-26C (2600 mAh) (sticker says made in Korea assembled in China) I don’t recommend this battery pack due to the amount of roofing tar, super glue, gordian knots and adamantium involved in its construction.
Dell type PT434 11.1V 56Wh = 6 green SE US18650GR T 8A123QH22D (2550 mAh) (sticker says made in Korea assembled in China)

JACKPOT…!!!

Ego 56v tool pack, = 42cells, Samsung 25Q
Ryobi 40v tool pack, = 20 Samsung 13Q

Well, I’ve tried to get into the recycle bin at my local Home depot to no avail, for months now. Every time into it, a employee questioned me and more or less stopped me from any further exploration of their bin…
This all changed last week.

HD moved the recycle bin to a out of the way, kind of out of sight location. So,,, last week was my first bin pick. No more questions from employee’s that now don’t see me dropping off my recycles and exploring whats in their bin…

Got a couple tool packs last week out of HD recycle bin. No good. All the cells were 18650, LG1100mAh, but had 1.1v or less. Tossed them all in my recycle ammo box after a wrestling match with the packs disassembly.

Yesterday morning got lucky. Got a Ryobi with 20 Samsung 13Q, all cells 3.1-3.3 volt.

Now for the Ego, a massive tool pack, chock full of 18650, got to be the recycler’s JACKPOT.. 42 Samsung 25Q all cells 3.2-3.4v. Yes, I know they aren’t 30Q or Sanyo 3600mAh, but for free, not bad.
They seem to be hi drain cells. Power my highest amp lights as good as any of my best high quality batteries, says my trusty amp probe. And the ones I charged so far, charged up great, didn’t even get warm in the lii-500, and took a full charge.

Getting good at taking these tool packs apart, a slight art to it. They sure don’t make it easy.
Haven’t got them all charged up yet, but dang, more cells then I know what to do with,,,lol

This is getting fun, thanks BLF for showing me the light, to the recycle bin…

Going to start to get picky on what I take from the bin. What tool packs have the best cells..?

Oh, by the way, 56v does pack a nice wake up shock, wear gloves, be careful with the ego…

I found 3 ryobi 40v packs last week at home depot one person saw me bagging them up and walk away and said did he just steal those. I keep on walking. I always walk up with a bag with something in it so I can dig. And walk away with a bag of stuff if need be.even at best buy I turn my back between me and the bin fiddle with the bags then shine my phone light down in the rubber flaps and look around. Of I see something I grab it and walk and don’t turn or look back. What are they going to do to me? They still get their tax credit for participating in recycling its not determined by how much they return just that they are enrolled in it I use to work at Lowes. Its not stealing because its recycling bin. But store policy was if we say someone in the store actually stealing stuff we weren’t allowed to say anything to them or touch them in anyway but go to a manager. If you need a cover story to go into the bins. 1) my brother dropped off the wrong batteries he recycled my good ones not my dead ones.
2) I’m with the technology dept at (insert local community college) we use these to teach the students robotics building and skills. I was happy I found the packs but not so happy to find it only has 1300mah cells the smaller tool packs are the way to go. I just got into after a week. My boss helped me there was two tiny security screws I didn’t have a bit for. Lowest I had was a t 15 needed a t-10 so now this weekend I’ll test all 60 cells and see what’s worth keeping. If anything I have a lifetime of free vaping cells. Save my good bought cells for lights

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

generic hp pr06 replacement.
was doa.
battmon showed 6.7v and it did not rise after 7 hours.wear level 100%.
so the bms could not trickle them back.
cells were surprise! samsung icr18650-22fm.dated 2012
all at 2.35v
i set all 3 pairs into a tp4056 based homebrew charger all in parallel.
after 5 hours of trickle they went to 1a.
the cells are still like new.the bms had locked out.
an odd case where an aftermarket pack had good cells.
and the low voltage kept them fresh.
seller was good about the situation and promptly refunded the transaction and said to recycle the pack.
i did:-)

I got some pink Samsung ICR18650-26F’s from a used tool battery pack.

They charged upto ~2200mhA-ish (far from 2600mAh when new) in my XTAR VC2 (they were not hot at all when charging, at 0.5V)

Maybe it’s a wrong impression, but I found they ran my Convoy S3 (8×7135) a tad hotter than other 18650’s I have (Or I forgot how hot this light can get Big Smile )

Need to double-check that!

Flashlights, blades & beer
Let’s stay relatively optimist!
