To be fair, HKJ published his review here before me.

It's the same battery.  He's a very good tester, and if I was reading, I wouldn't get excited about the second review about it either when the first was was an excellent review.

The low mode should be lower.

It was two weeks ago.  Btw, I finally did my first 30A discharge tests.  The first 35A discharge test will be later today. 

The low mode should be lower.

TY for the review leftye. These are oldies but goldies. I have maybe 8 of them left and they do quite well even in hot rod lights. Which you confirm. Thank you.

How are you updating them? Are you just updating them on BLF or also on /r/flashlight? Or maybe just update on the /r/e-cigg sub since their the only ones that will be interested at these Amps.

They're good batteries, but the same thing could be said with almost any battery from Samsung, Sony, LG and Panasonic.  Deciding if it's good for you is the hard part.  This battery doesn't lean towards either extreme of providing high capacity or current.  It's more of a general purpose battery.

You're welcome!

The big part is doing additional high current tests from 10A to the continuous discharge rating, or thereabouts.  Additional internal resistance measurements are added, plus fitting them into some flashlights.  After I load all the data and my comments, the text for each website is automatically generated, so publishing on one site instead of all of them only saves me a few minutes.

The low mode should be lower.

Hello,

I am replacing the cells of my laptop battery 480385-001 and it came with 26Cs.
I couldnt find 26C anywhere and I was wondering if it would be safe to use 26Fs?
Your insight is appreciated!
