Thanks for the review!

I ordered 4 from Aspire’s Chinese site (the shipping cost went UP if ordering 5 or more).

Aspire’s UK site is about twice as expensive for the cells and the shipping cost from the UK to Sweden is about the same as from China to Sweden (it’s a strange world…).

Apparently DHL (which was the only shipping agent choice for Sweden on the site) didn’t accept sending 18350:s to Sweden, so they were sent by e-EMS instead. Can’t complain since I got the shipping charge difference back. In the end the shipping of 4 18350:s to Sweden (via e-EMS) amounted to USD 4:92

I know what you can do with them – give a couple to Jon so he can test them. he might be interested wink

Great minds think alike!!

About 5 minutes after I posted on here I emailed Jon and told him about these batteries and said I wanted to give him One…your idea of Two maybe better! Thumbs Up

Jon was very impressed with the batteries performance[HKJ review]. He graciously declined my offer and told me he is going to look into getting them.

Hopefully he will and he has them in a month or Two!

I received 10 of the 25 batteries that I ordered. I will test 8 of them for capacity (=at 500mA discharge) in the Opus. Here’s the first 4, capacities are fine.

The high current capabilities of the fully charged battery prove a bit less than my black Keeppower IMR cells, on my EDC triple they deliver 5.7A, while the Keeppower does more than 7. But that is more than fine knowing that it will maintain the current longer.
Edit: correction, I did not test fully charged cells Facepalm

Well that’s discouraging Jos! I built a light today just for these, two of the dark purple Efest 18350’s allow 15.87A for 10,315.5 lumens. Was really hoping that these new Aspires would do even better, not that I’m finding these numbers lacking in any way.

Wait Dale, I just checked again and found that I pulled the cells only half charged from the Opus, after the discharge capacity check the cells were still being charged apparently. Sorry to disturb you, better results later!

Sweet! Back to having high hopes I’ll see 11,000 lumens or more in this Ti X6. Big Smile

They rock!

8.8A up from slightly over 7A, that’s a significant increase over the Keeppower to be sure. Looking forward to em, heck if they match the output of my dark purple metallic looking Efests but with more capacity I’m still a happy camper. With the new emitters and new cells, some output’s are possible that never were before. Win win, all around, as far as I’m concerned. Wink

Aspire (e-cig company) has a wholesale US distributor, uvaper.com, that stocks them. These cells have been around since Oct 2016 as far as I can tell from vape forum posts.

Thanks for the link,,,,,,,,,,,,,Jon may have them soon.

As far as Uvaper goes,,,,never saw a website where you had to create an account to find out the prices! Ridiculous.

I am assuming that is directed towards me.You are a man of few words which is fine. They are usually vague and irrelevant.

What does that have to do with it? Liionwholesale[my neighbor Jon] is wholesale and he lists the prices. So is the vapeshop [forget the name] in Bangor,PA….they list the prices also.

their site, their login…

some others use that crap captcha with all the cars and road signs crap
I opted out of three of those due to the verbose, repetitive nature
you can never get it right on first try with most of them

anyway
their site, their login…

am I being verbose?

Just for the sake of it I added some from the chinese website, but it seems I am in the same ballpark as djozz is: DHL shipping ripoff until order amount reaches/surpasses 25 pieces/$100 value, at which point a free shipping option appears. I don't really know what sort of shipping service do they hire in such case, maybe djozz can answer this. Djozz? 

 

 

Deleting a just published post causes the forum thread answer notification to fail. Thus, if you need to change your just published post, edit it. Thanks.

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

The tracking number was from chinese EMS. Btw, I got the batteries in two shipments, got the first one within a week, the second package is bouncing around in China without end Sad

I think I need a couple of these. They seem just about right for a shorty triple.
