I have some Xtars coming, and I made an offer on the Hi-Max to the seller on Ebay.  But would be interested in trying these if they are good.

GTL is in yellow .. Graph was from my Xtar test , I just added the GTL result .

Wow , as can be seen , the batteries really pump for 25 minutes and then fall flat on there face , as they would say on Mythbusters , BUSTED !!! No way 2800mAh !!
You would be lucky to get 1600mAh , Nice output for a little while ...
Possibly re-badged/labeled 1400 to 1600 capacity batteries / the word Fraud comes to mind , shonky , and a few other choice words come to mind . WORD ! you been told     n.gifo.gif  g.gifo.gifo.gifd.gif

I just bought 2 of the Hi-Max batteries for $13 and that's including shipping.  I wanted to try them.

I wouldn't buy any li-ion batteries on eBay unless someone does the testing here first and you make sure you get the same seller. There are so many re-labelled garbage batteries on eBay that I don't even bother looking.

Nice job on the results, vawayne!

I already did my homework.  But you are right what you say.

Please run from them LOL. I have never seen a single good test from the GTL's also note, there are some sellers saying their Ultrafire's are made in Japan Laughing

Hmm GTL......DX mentioned "Product print '3000mAh', the exact capacity is 2200mAh" for a GTL branded 18650 in the link below. So I probably stay away from this brand unless the 2800mAh model is proven to have such capacity.
