Yes, Sanyo is subsidiary of Panasonic now.
They can using one brand (like eneloop), two brands using same line of series rather confusing before we get use to it.

My guess is that they’ll be in 8-cell packs rated ~90-95Wh, or 6 cell packs rated ~70Wh. I kind of doubt they’d put them in 100Wh 9 cell packs.

Reading around after doing a search it looks like the B “F”‘s are just B’s with a new graphite + SiO anode instead of just graphite in the 18650B.

Data sheet seems to indicate that the F is almost exactly the same and may hold a tiny bit higher voltage during discharge at normal temperatures with the difference increasing as the temperature drops. I’ll wait for someone to test these first but it looks like a minor update/tweak.

My Samsung INR18650-29Es from Fastech has been in transit for 78 days. At least I feel reassured knowing that some got their batteries after 5 months. :~

Its a shame that it has come to this with batteries from FT as they had some of the best prices. I have only had one shipment out of 5 get through in about the last eight months and hopefully the one on the water now gets through. Its been six weeks to now so far.

Time to start scouting the Best Buys and Fry's to see what current gen notebooks that might house these beasts.

What makes you think its Ti (other than the name)? It lists “Al alloy”. I think they just called it that cause its a clone. I do like it tho and it looks like it can be fitted with a metal tail button, plus the centering ring is the good kind but at $30 it’s to much for what you get.

If others got their batteries after five months then I think we’ll all get our orders in due time. Smile

Oh that’s good to know! Shocked

If my calculations are correct, it arrived after 149 days. A day more and it would have took exactly 150 days or five months. :bigsmile:

So I guess the best thing to do is buy way ahead if you perceive that you’ll need these cells five months after. :~

I had some batteries arrive last week 34 days after shipping via their surface mail option

First paid computer job was in ’75, writing an extra report for HAPAS accounts on a Wang Computer.

The batteries I ordered on 29th June arrived 20th August. Shipped surface mail, so not too bad in the circumstances.

Nice idea for a thread ChibiM. Crown (where’s the thumbs up emoticon)?
