So, while I was looking at a nice low cost source for 18650s, I came again at the sight of the Littokala store. What I found was digusting!
Then I noticed. The price of all 18650s have been cut by half, but many reviews are saying that their cells have leaked, have very low capacity, and have too low discharge rates. I would not buy any batteries from any of the Liitokala stores
I have not looked at more cells, but even if they were free, these are probably one of the worst deals that I’ve ever found.
You do not want to risk your life with these kind of cells
I have not checked on other cells from other supposed Liitokala sellers, but they should be about the same, selling fraudulent batteries and risking lives everywhere…
The links above are for archive purposes. The seller has commited FRAUD and is not trustworthy
He has sold fake Samsung 30Qs, and therefore, he probably sells other fake cells.
The Liitokala Factory store IS FAKE, and is not the real Liitokala Official store.
DO NOT BUY ANY 18650s from the Liitokala store, ALL OF THEM!
THEY HAVE CHANGED THEIR NAMES FROM SAMSUNG 30Q TO LIITOKALA 30Q
This means, to be able not to offer refunds, they changed the cells’ name from OEMs to their own!
DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY!
Also, on post #283:
User ActiveAI has tested the FAKE LIITOKALA 30Qs to have 2x the internal resistance than the legitimate ones. This means the cells have been swapped with Panasonic NCR18650PFs/LG MG1s, which have 3Ah of capacity, but are only rated up to 10A continuous compared to the 30Qs 15-20A!
That means they sold an inferior cell to us!
Do not give them money. We need to punish them!
