Thanks HKJ i enjoy your battery testing. It looks like the manafont ones give slightly more mAh and some of my testing is close to your results, but with less and more general info.

Keep up the good work HKJ and i apreciate your time and effort as i know battery testing chews up a lot of time.

I have another new manafont one here ready for testing im just so bussy this weekend i will test it early next week and post my results, inwill test others i order in the future.

Ive got another one here for over a week just have not had the time to test it, we had bad storms here and only just got power back on, but looks like it will be knocked out again tonight.

Hi

Just a quick question, from your tests it looks like the max current these protected cells will pump out is 6.43A?

Ta!

Got 2 pcs from Manafont recently.
One was DOA, other gave me 3923mAh
From 4.20 -> 2.70V @ 1A discharge rate.

Do you think it is legit?

Ordered one from Manafont 09/05/12. Recieved 09/26/12.
3.90 Volt out of bag, no holographic sticker, ~95 grams
Protection stops charging at 4.20V. Protection works if drain > 7A. Low voltage protection not tested. Left overnight went form 2.75V to 3.00V. Don’t have equipment to test capacity.
While I was waiting for TR-005 charger, I was charging it with mobile phone charger @0.52A and it took ~12 hours. Now with TR-005 it’s 4-6 hours.

Im charging the cell now i was planing on testing the low cut off
Did you get the low voltage protection tested? I ran the TF 26650 until it was “very dim” (not on purpose, a hurricane hit and I couldn’t get to the light to turn it off) in a UF W-878 (approx 2 to 3 hours on high), a day or two later when I put it on my 2amp charger it read 2.98v and started to charge. A few hours later it overheated and vented Sad

Just wondering what the cut off voltage of the protection you tested was, because mine didn’t seem to work.

It looks like the Manafont website is no longer in business?
Go Daddy has the website up for grabs
