Very nice matching of the two batteries and capacity is nearly independent of load. This battery has slightly higher capacity than the 26F model, but lower voltage.

Conclusion

This is a very good cell for a standard 2600mAh cell.
Remember that the cell is unprotected this means it will have higher voltage at "high" load than protected batteries.


Notes and links

The batteries was supplied by Akkuteile.de for review.

So the 26F and 26H are quite similar. Will you be reviewing the 26C too?

Not at the current time, i.e. I do not have it in queue.

A few days ago I ordered a 26F and I received 26H. Do I have a reason for complain?
Going to use this batteries in cheap XM-L/L2 flashlights like C8, WF-502B, SolarStorm SC02.

Go to my comparator and compare them, one is better at high current, the other has more capacity.

I just got done ripping open a working Dell laptop battery pack and found 6 of these. I guess I hit the jackpot. :bigsmile:
