Samsung 40T color

Was wondering if anyone has seen the 40T in that light tan color. All of my other 40T’s are the light blue/ purple color.
Just got this cell in, and was curious if it is a new or old color that I haven’t seen on the 40T 21700.

30T is Tan/Greyish. How about a photo of this Tan 40T?

You can't hide me from me.

Definitely a fake with that wrapper. Manufacturers code is not right. Just curious, what does the positive pole look like? Side by side comparison.

I forgot,,where did you get it?

Thanks, I was curious about the tan/grey one. I haven’t seen one that color. I haven’t been around 21700’s
very long. I might have missed the tan/grey ones.

Just got a response back from Illumn.

“I apologize for the confusion – we haven’t updated our website pictures but all our 40Ts are now this color. We have consistently been receiving cells of this color. “

They said they’ll run a load test on one and let me know.
I think that’s great service on their part.

I would give them all the tests, just for curiosity. Wink

If a reputable seller like Illumn says the above it is very likely that 40T cells are now being manufactured that way. Manufacturers can change their wrap and can markings as they see fit. LG also applied some drastic changes to their wraps relatively recently.

Battery cells are technical and industrial products, their manufacturers have absolutely no interest or need to announce changes in their processes with any loud fanfare. It is pretty understandable. 

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

First of all, I understand this is not your problem but it is overall better if you can share standard “www” AliExpress links. This is the standard, fuss free link for the above: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001119981096.html

The reason I say this is because stupid AliExpress insists in changing the site language of whoever clicks in these links, instead of following the user's language cookie. But well…

 

That C&P Official Store looks like a tool battery store; and as far as I can see everything matches, price included. I'd trust them, is all I can say.

Thanks for sharing.

Mooch has tested the Samsung 40T3 :

https://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/threads/bench-test-results-samsung-40t...

Quote:
…This is the newest version of the great performing Samsung 40T. It can be identified by a “3” at the start of the third line of printing on the wrap (see photo below). The 40T1 had no separate number at the start of the third line. There was no 40T2.

The 40T3 performed the same as the 40T1 at 10A but at above 15A or so the 40T1 is the better performer. But the 40T3 datasheet shows it having a much longer cycle life than the 40T1. So while Samsung increased the overall life of the 40T, something I am sure their customers wanted, you get nothing for free with li-ion cells and I guess the performance had to drop a little. The 40T3 datasheet shows the 40T3 equaling the 40T1 though.

The two cells I tested delivered 4162mAh and 4177mAh and had a DC internal resistance average of 12.9mOhm. This is good consistency and both cells exceed Samsung’s 4000mAh nominal capacity rating…

The 40T3 has a purple wrapper:

Thanks for sharing this. The last couple I got from Illumn are 40T3’s. Pricey, but worth it. Not worried about what little difference in performance would be sacrificed for longevity as none of my current stable of 21700 lights pull more than maybe 12.5A on short bursts of turbo.
