Yep first time I have seen these, a 5000mah 18650!! http://www.ebay.com/itm/280742341594#ht_500wt_949 I figure I might buy a couple for entertainment, I expect I would get a refund shortly after Laughing

I need a battery like that to feed my 17,000 lumen Q3 501b that I bought last week. No shame at all.

If you hook up all 4 in parallel you might get that 5000 mAh. They wouldn't lie!

Ha !  In another thread I came up with the formula  1L= 1.7604 FCL

 

1 Lumen equals 1.7604 Fake Chinese Lumens  ( FCL) .

 

Or could also be the more Politically Correct - Fake Claimed Lumens ( FCL ).

 

I hope that Budget Light Forum appreciates  the more than 35 seconds of Research required to arrive at this Formula, in light  of  my lack of  expertise on this subject.

Unbelieveble...

Why not simply use a pencil and write 10000mah on the side of the battery

The problem is that if someone that don't have experience could think this battery are really good...

My favourite review was still one for some generic 3600mAs, where the reviewer said it gave him more "mA per dollar" than the trust fire flames

 

That is what represents where the money is at!

Exactly, look at the feedback, its all positive! Clearly most people are not testing their batteries or on message boards looking this information up.

Most strange.   Who in their right mind would ever try to convince anyone that a huge jump in battery capacity had been invented by GTL !!!!

It's crazy. Most buyer would think: "You get 4x 5000mAh GTL for $11,59 , why should I pay around $19 + shipping for 1 AW2900mAh". No buyer give the seller a neutrale or negative ebay feedback, only positiv like these:

Positive BewertungOK? Very good Ebayeur, very fast BRAVO 23.10.2011 21:43:31

Wow 5000mAh, I'm getting mine soon Laughing

In the description it's missing the "Discharge Rate = 15A"

There is a report button on Ebay .

This is obviously fraudulent ... 5000mAh capacity claim

So there is the option to report such to Ebay , but then there is the issue of Ebay doing ??

And since 99.999999 - something % of the earths population wont see this thread .

preaching to the quior comes to mind .. [ not that anyone is preaching ]

Just that we know , and knowing that a lot of folks dont know , I guess can be frustrating .

You know

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

I don't know if this belongs here or deserves it's own thread,  but in varying applications one might want to consider "useable" mAH.

A cell can have an X capacity, but once it reaches a certain ability to deliver  energy to the end of circuit it will fall off/fail to deliver.

Just an observation, once a 3.7v battery regardless of capacity reaches 3.8-3.6v perfomance falls off greatly or fails. ( again depends on what your device is capable of using)

Charge it at this point.  the remaining mAh is moot.

I'm sorry

Google is a great search engine but unfortunately it doesn't filter out idiocy.

I had the misfortune of being googled here, only to discover a camel pile of dung.  Not a single post above came up with anything substantial, only slurs and rants.  No one offered anything worthwhile like WHY these 5000mah batteries might be bad.  Did anyone do any measurements?   Can anyone tell if even a modest 2400mah battery is genuinely of that capacity?

There will always be liars, as long as there're idiots who believe in them.

So enlighten us, FlashFreak. If you want to plunk down some money on some obviously fake 'camel pile of dung' batteries and test them, go ahead. Please feel free to report back when you are done with your tests. We'll just be hanging around here twiddling our thumbs and making fun of other fake crap.  Smile

Flashfreak, you're new here with 2 posts, so I'll try to be gentle.

People that know about batteries know that the max you can can buy nowadays is 3100 mAh, and even that's within certain technical constraints. 5000 mAh batteries might exist in a Panasonic lab or NASA, but they don't exist in the real world. That's why we can heap scorn on an ebay d**cheb*g like this.

To answer your other question, there are some 2400 mAh batteries out there that are actual capacity. There are others that aren't.

If you spend a bit of time here, you'll be able to know the difference.

no - absolutely no one here measures the discharge capacity of their batteries - ever

How do you pronounce mah, is it pronounced (m-a-h), or (ma)?

He isn't even good at erasing the original markings before slapping on the fakes.
