Notes

Batteries provided from Basen Group.

Basen lists the discharge end voltage as 2.5V and standard charging current as 0.909A, but I have chosen to simplify my tests by discharging to 2.8V and charging all my test batteries at 0.5A. This should make it easier to compare my test results against each other and against other reviews.

This review will be updated with data from the Basen charger and Opus BT-C3100.

The low mode should be lower.

Ledoman has also published a test of these batteries.

HKJ published a test of the Keeppower IMR18650 3200 mAh battery.  I've mentioned it because there was speculation that battery had the same cell inside as the Basen battery in this test.  While I don't believe these use the same cells, I don't believe the data is conclusive either.  If the battery in this test has IMR chemistry, then Basen rated it very conservatively.  I'll try running higher current discharge tests that exceed Basen's specifications when I finish testing the rest of their batteries.

The low mode should be lower.
