HKJ have you heard of Pluzpower batteries from the UK? They claim to equal the best out there.
Pluzpower

They also sell 26650’s on eBay which don’t seem to be listed on their website for some reason.

Not yet, but I have put in a order now.


Looking forward to see results.
I ordered today. It’s only 18350 I can get with normal price and normal shipping price to my country.
Any other is at least 25$ shipping.

It do not look like I will order batteries from them, from their terms and conditions: “Our site is only intended for use by adults who resident in the United Kingdom (mainland only)”

It’s a shame they’re only for UK as they seem to be good batteries, but can’t seem to find any tests on them.

You can always ask them to send me some batteries for test, if enough UK people do that, they may do it.

I need links to where I can get them (US dealers are no good).
But it will not be during the next few months, I just got a big box of batteries.

I see that Shockli offers 3500 mAh 18650 battery. It would be great to see how does it perform…

Just now I have a nice pile of batteries to review and will take it a bit easy with getting more batteries.
Anyway Shockli usual donate me batteries for test, I hope they will send me one of that model.

Sofirn (recently online here with a variety of flashlights) is also selling batteries

These are dirt cheap NiMH cells — curious if they’re going to test well.

They don’t spell English very well. Look for: Sofirn Recgargeable AAA Batteries High Capacity 900mAh

I am low on NiMH batteries so I have ordered a couple of different Sofirn batteries. Some of them are definitely with overstated capacity.

Hello HKJ!

Keeppower recently released their protected 15A 3120, which probably uses the VTC6 cell. Perhaps interesting to compare results with the next gen VC+ cells from Enerpower you have tested recently? Thanks for considering.

HKJ, could you test PKCELL 10440 and 14500?
There’s a report which says they are good.

I have ordered the 14500, I will wait a bit with the 10440.

 Well, I was also going to point out what Agro did.

Related search I made, more adequate for european buyers I believe: “14500” search in DURNERGY store

Hope we can see a 7 to 10A continuous discharge rate cell delivering 750+mAh. 

 

P.S.: Mmmkay…

There are new Keeppower batteries:
http://www.keeppower.com.cn/products_detail.php?id=554 (Shockli 5500 mAh + protection? Too narrow for that!)
http://www.keeppower.com.cn/products_detail.php?id=567 (Yongdeli 18350 rewrap that’s cheaper than Aspire?)
http://www.keeppower.com.cn/products_detail.php?id=566 (Same as above, but with protection)
Would be great to see them tested.
Personally I’ less interested, but have to note other news:
http://www.keeppower.com.cn/products_detail.php?id=563
http://www.keeppower.com.cn/products_detail.php?id=564

27700 Agro, ∅27×69mm, if that is narrow for you, so be it. I bet a lot of flashlights designed by @#$% won't be able to fit them.

If it is the 5.5Ah PLB cell, they've felt free to “raise” the specification.

I neither like KeepPower's rewrapping policies, nor their jacked up  prices.

27 mm, not 26 mm. My bad. So it actually looks like Shockli. And yes, it won’t fit many lights.

Nothing new here I bet. At best, the Lii-35A will be a rewrapped Samsung INR18650-35E, highest capacity cell and one I'd rate as “3300”, at most.

It’s actually marketed as NCR18650GA. If they are, they are among the cheapest way to get this cell delivered to south america

By the way, is the new LiitoKala Lii-50A cell in the review queue? 

People is reporting slightly higher current flow to the emitter(s) in their DD-FETted torches versus the old blue cell. A very slight capacity drop, too. Looks to me like they switched their cell provider, smells like Hengji Battery (?).

Interesting: Allmaybe 9V 1200mAh Li-MnO2 PP3 primary battery.

This should provide high voltage and top notch capacity for low drain applications (if figures are not inflated, of course).

The company is chinese, they've been promoting their LCD equipped Quick Charge 3.0 PSU recently.

 

Cheers Party
