Ah, yes. Well I’m in the colonies (South Africa) and I bought them from a local distributor here, so I’m not sure how useful that is to you? I’ll PM you a link, in case it’s of any use to you…

Probably not very useful. If he will sell to me, it will cost a fortune in shipping.

How is your queue looking these days for li-ion cells?

Very low, that is one of the reason I publish very slowly.
But a manufacturer/rewrapper has promised me a large pack of cells (More than 15 types) for testing.

I figured/hoped that was the reason. I know you won’t be doing this forever, but I hope it’ll still be for a while yet. You’ve created the best open source battery database in the world. I’m so grateful!

I’m interested in seeing the latest 21700 offerings that achieve higher discharge rates and achieve close to 5Ah. Vapcell G48 is interesting. I’m hoping for a true 15A (stays below 70°C), 5Ah cell.

Also, I just purchased some cheap ‘HiQuick’ AAA NiMH cells in Amazon with a Vipon code (about 5USD for 8pk). Not sure if they are available affordably to your country or not. Interested how they stack up. I’ll try and test them myself when I get a chance, but you may want to test them too. I’ll send two for the price of shipping if you like. Pm me if that interests you.

I will probably continue my reviews years yet, but I also have other interest.
One of my interest it making test equipment and I have made some recently to make my testing easier and more automatic. And also some just to add some small improvements. A lot of this will be published on my website in the “project” category and some of it will also be published here.

My main project the last ½year has been to make a new program to control my testing, I will probably not use it for battery testing, because my current solution mostly works. It will be used for USB-C chargers (Together with some hardware I have made) to make it much easier for me to do the testing.

Hi HKJ;

As many of us buy Sofirn lights with the included battery, could it be possible to test some of them. Your site has the 14500 / 900 mAh cell only.

I’d think Sofirn would oblige in sending you some samples.

Thanks…

Hello Henrik,

Looks like your site suffered some sort of mess up with your latest battery review, the Samsung 50G one. First and foremost, the link to it in the main page got a big picture of the cells attached to the review name, making the cell “the star of the show”:

 

 

In second place, certain graphs in the review are “out of scale”. …

 

Everything fixed.

Just to point this out.

Deleting a post and redoing it causes the forum thread answer notifications to become invalid. Thus, if you need to change your just published post, edit it. Thanks.

Please avoid quoting lenghty posts, namely with nested quotes. Trim the quote down to the essential. Helps with forum neatness and legibility. Thanks.

Localized AliExpress links mess up with the language setting of whoever clicks or taps on them. While this is a fault of the AliExpress system, turning localized links into global links helps and is easy; just change the locale letters in the url for www. Example:

https://es.aliexpress.com/item/bla-bla-bla.html turns into https://www.aliexpress.com/item/bla-bla-bla.html. Thumbs Up

Hopefully fixed now, but it may be an hour before the website is fully up to date.
