Shit! I was late to this thread! Sad
I bought a coupple of “100% New Original NCR18650B 3.7 v 3400mah 18650 Lithium Rechargeable Battery For Flashlight batteries” look here: Aliexpress store for 4,56$ because now on Aliexpress there is a massive sales in a lot of stores. What do you think? It’s scam??

I know the price is veeery good/low, but I thought it was for the sales!! Facepalm

EDIT: the name of the store is: GlobalPower Co., LT Store 1270703, 12386 reviewof this battery!!!

Yeah, it’s a scam. NCR18650s only have 3 legs on the positive terminal, not 4, as noted by the red regions.

Do not buy lithium ion cells from this store!

They sell fake cells!

How is it a scam when nowhere do they mention Panasonic. You’re kind of asking for it when you go for a cheap price.

Yes, they’ve used the Panasonic wrap but these are details you need to be aware of. These are all over the place now. They claim 100% original but this is referring to the brand like Liitokala, Varicore etc.

I made the same mistake when these were first introduced to the market 5yrs ago but I purchased 50pcs. I was pissed at first but realized when I went to open a dispute that Panasonic was never stated.

Bottom line it was my own fault for seeking a cheaper than usual price.

Just wanted to share my experience with NKON. I’ve bought cells from them on multiple occasions and never had any problems. Genuine cells and all exactly at the same voltage (ordered 3 vtc6’s and they were all at 3.67V). Very good prices as well.

Has anyone in UK tried ordering li ion batteries from banggood. There is a new option called “Standard Mail Register” and cost more than the options like “Priority direct mail” you would usually see. This is the only shipping option available. Banggood support said it’s fine cause if the item was prohibited it wouldn’t let you place the order.

Hi there,

I’m one of the founders of Musk Atomics.

We recently launched a brand new 2200mah battery. Our goal for the next 18 months is to bring the cost of cells down to below $200/kwh.

We’re currently using a slight variation on the standard chemistry to get prices down to $315/kwh, which is significantly better than most of the other batteries that are publicly available.

Please note that due to the modified chemistry, the safe discharge rate is only 6A. If you need to draw 30A, this is not the battery for you.

We’re trying to get the word out about our batteries. If anybody in this forum is looking for very competitively priced cells, please check us out: https://muskatomics.com/collections/batteries/products/musk-18650-2200ma...

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at hello@muskatomics.com

Hey there! I’m recently just has bought the SHOCKLII 26650 5500 30A Black one from Aliexpress. I received it and all good to go.

But when you look at its 26650 column/page, they had another version 26650 which wrapped green labeled as 5250mah 20a/40a. Yes, what cought my attention is the discharge mark, 20a/40a. I am aware of HKJ test with the mentioned battery, but could it be really a high discharge battery compared with theblack 26650 30a???

In search of the most ideal flashlight in town:

2. Durabillity
3. Design
4. Quality
5. Price$$$

I ordered two from him along with an NI40. UK law says it has to be in the device but Neal said he found a way to send it. Hopefully they arrive.

That black label Shockli is really only a 20A cell. Here is Mooch’s test.

Looks to me that the number of legs on the positive terminal is different from that shown on other websites such as Lion Wholesale.

^^^ +1

That’s probably a cell that has capacity equivalent to an NCR18650GA, but not internal resistance.

Its number of legs on the positive terminal is quite a bit higher than what’s found on an NCR18650GA.

Very likely same cells as used in some fake NCR18650Bs.

No markings on bare cells.

Look at that Shocked
I’m on the hunt for genuine brand cells with good capacity and 10A continuous for 2 bucks a piece.
I have found them at i.e liionwholesale but they’re sold out.

Just a note — Nealsgadgets doesn’t ship loose cells to the US anymore. The order will complete, and the money will transfer, but will go into indefinite limbo with no feedback as to why.
