Anyone looking for (10) free 4/5sc nimh cells? just pay the shipping

Anyone looking for 4/5sc nimh cells?

not a big deal but I found, no really I found them. they are used (retreived them out a bissle dust buster)

10 4/5sc nimh cells, I charged them up and all seem to be just fine.

I cant figure out what to use them for.

2x do fit and run my S7 lights maybe put them in your zombie bag?

they are 1.2v each. they dont run the s7 as well as an 18650 but I did stack two togther to charge them on my li-on charger.

if you look up nimh charging you will see that temp is most often way to manage the charge and I just got them warm and up to around 1.4-1.5v pulled them off and they cooled n problem and voltage stabilizes well.

hey if no takers for free well so be it.

I bought some a few years ago and used them to convert 6V Vistalite nightsticks to 8.4V. The original cells were 5S subC and I was able to squeeze 2 more of the 4/5 subC’s into the tubes. Capacity of even new cells isn’t great though.

Any estimate what the shipping would cost? or a guess on the box sizes and weight?

Should fit in one of the small flat rate boxes for 5.95 then.
Now if I could figure out a practical use for them…

I put 30 of them in a Pelican King D. The nice hing about them is you can series them to get whatever voltage you need without worrying about protection circuits.
