well if you get samsung’s permission, then sure, you can wrap it in neon green, and say “zoulas” on it.

No, “ZoulasFire”.

Selling products produced by others under a different name is a tried and true practice. For example Kenmore appliances, after-market car batteries (there are only 3 manufacturers in the US), etc.

And with respect to these batteries no doubt the original manufacturers are selling them to Vapcell with the understanding that they are going to be sold under the Vapcell name.

The question now is…are the Vapcell, Epoch, Keeppower, etc all the same battery, exactly? For example, FN is a company that makes rifle barrels. What happens, is the company who wants barrels, places an order, and their criteria determines the price. All the barrels are made of the same steel on the same machines…but bore straightness, roughness, chrome lining uniformity, etc. are spec’ed and tolerances given which affects reject rate and ultimately price…so you may buy a $275 FN barrel, or a $375 FN barrel, and while they are visibly the same to the eye, and a spectrometer will determine the steel is the same…they are NOT going to, as a whole, be the “same” barrel, even though a “good” cheap barrel MAY end up being better than a more expensive one that barely met spec. (This leads to “my such and such did better than my buddies such and such that cost $100 more…” type posts and tirades, and while true, this only represents a singular comparison event of extreme nature, not typical performance from either.)

So how is it with these batteries? Literally the same…or does each buyer get to set the bar? Now…if that is the case…who’s bar is set the highest?

That’s of course the same with any rebranded item. Though with li-ion batteries I’d be surprised if re-wrappers were able to specify a special run rather than buying the batteries outright. Perhaps lesser grade batteries but we’ll never know for sure.

My comment was really directed to
“zoulas wrote: I think if you are going to outright copy something there should be disclosure. This is why authors use footnotes, to give credit to the original writer.”
and was intended to point out that rebranding is a very common thing in the market place.

Also the rewrappers do get to set their bar since they are selling the batteries under their name and not under the manufacturers. Same as Kenmore appliances having less features than their Whirlpool equivalent (back in the day when Whirlpool was making Kenmore’s).

It would be nice if some of the lesser known manufacturers were mentioned.

Orbtronic on their 18350:
“Recommended charging current: 0.5A or 1A CC/CV (Battery can be charged at 0.25A, but charging time will take longer)”

KeepPower on their 18350:
“Standard Continuous Charging Current: 220mA”
“Maximum Continuous Charging Current: 1.1A”

Vapcell on their M11 18350:
“Standard Charge: 500mA,CCCV 100mA cut-off”
“Quick Charge Current: 1500mA”

They’ve all made suggestions about how to charge their 18350’s.

If they’re all rewraps of the same YDL 18350D, then should the standard and max continuous charging current be the same?
