Aosibo%20IMR18650%202600mAh%20(Yellow)-info

A high current battery with fairly high capacity.

The battery is marked with two currents 30A is the continuous discharger current and 60A being a unspecific pulse discharge.

Aosibo%20IMR18650%202600mAh%20(Yellow)-Capacity

Fairly good tracking between the two cells and capacity hold fairly well at 30A. As usual the reason for slightly more capacity at very high currents is heat. The high current heats the cell and chemistry works better when warm.

This cell is impressive. It handily beats HKJ’s HE2 and 25R samples in capacity, but it seems to have more initial voltage sag under high current. I wonder what cell they are using.

Is the HE4 under the label of Aosibo ???? :quest:

The positive pole is however like the LG Chem and say it’s better at a high temperature from the HE2…… :quest:

Thanks HKJ for your time.

I cannot tell you. The datasheet for the cell just has the Aosibo name on it.

I’m pretty sure the cell is a Sony VTC5 IMR 2600mAh.

The Keeppower IMR 2600mAh (which uses Sony VTC5 cells) tracks very closely with the Aosibo, both at very low as well as high currents.

Here’s your photo:

Do you know what brand cell it is? I don’t see any identifiable markings on it.

I see, thank you.

Is there a supplier you have for those who are interested in purchasing these cells?
