Thanks for the results SKV89!
Seems like the Vapcell and Shockli are really shoulder to shoulder and are the definite 14500 top cells so far Wink

However, while the Vapcell H10 have already returned to the market, I don’t see the Shockli yet Oops

Should be available soon. I was asking Shockli-Simon to sell me some since it was originally tested by HKJ. Waited half a year and they finally have them available. Have you checked Aliexpress?

Btw, the Shockli Orange 1050mah is a flat top that works in the GT Micro. The Vapcell H10 flat top does not work in the GT Micro. So not sure if they really are the same cell.

I’d be absolutely shocked if they weren’t the same cell. Everything looks the identical. It could be something as minor as a different insulating gasket and/or thinner wrapper that makes the difference.

I’ve had this before with Windyfire Red 14500 FTs. Two of the four I bought at the same time would work in an Eagletac D25a, two would not. Microns different in protrusion of the positive contact was make or break. Crimping variation easily could account for the difference I measured in that case.

4 of my Shockli 1050 flat tops worked in the GT Micro and both the Vapcell H10 flat tops didn’t. But it could simply be due to batch to batch variation. The chances of them being the same cell is high.

I think there’s also variation between GT Micro’s, I got cool-white & neutral-white GT Micro.
I don’t have these Shockli 1050mAh and Vapcell H10 flat-tops, but I tried some other flat-top 14500 batteries on the GT Micro.

What’s surprising is that some flat-tops work on one GT Micro, but doesn’t work (not making proper contact) with the other GT Micro..

Got flat top Vapcell Gold from Nov 2018 and flat top H10 from Neals included with GT Micro copper recently delivered. Both work in original GT Micro and the copper.

Good news guys. These batteries are available now and are slightly cheaper than the Vapcell H10. Unfortunately, only a flat top.

Fortunately their flat tops protrude a bit more than the H10. 4 of my Shockli Orange 1050 flat tops works in the GT Micro and both the Vapcell H10 flat tops didn’t.

My Jaxman E3 triple w/ LD-A4 9A driver, from led4power Wink

And my BlitzWolf BW-ET1 modded with XHP50.2 (with 15mm driver with Anduril, this one takes 2 ×14500) Thumbs Up
And eventually other 2xAA lights that I will mod in 2×14500 with XHP50.2 Big Smile (Tool25 and a 2xAA Livarnolux zoomie).

And in my Tool AA lights when I receive some DTPs to replace the thin aluminium PCBs. They’re running with 15mm drivers with Bistro HD OTSM by Lexel.

What are those? My Tool AA 2.0 gets hot pretty quickly with the KP CSLNM1.F1 on the stock alum board. Silly

I can confirm that atleast in my GT Micro nw L10 flat tops work just fine. Even the colors match:

Maybe some flat tops wont work because they hit those solderings? Atleast my flat tops moves freely and wont press against them because that +thingy is a still bit higher vs. them.

Wow, I guess I was a lucky one! Mine 4 shipped yesterday Big Smile

Maybe it is a temporary situation due to the 11.11 demand? (even if they were not at special sale)
