With my collection swelling up to 300 batteries again (mostly pack pulls), the last thing I need are more batteries …. But I can’t pass up a good deal, especially on some of my favorite batteries at $2.68 each, less than half of what FT charges ($5.44), if I did my division correctly, which is asking a lot
Ye olde purple 2800mah ICR 28A Samsung 18650s.
So far I have bought three 6-packs, and all have come charged to a perfectly respectable 2.2-2.54, and all are purple Samsung 2800s as expected. Like all new li-ions, they pop up to about 3.6 or so after about 1 minute in an Intellicharger or equivalent. These are supposedly new, and my tests point to them being just that. Run times are great. And the ones I got hold up nicely sag-wise to the demands of a supposed 4-amp driver on high.
If my link doesn’t work right, set your ebay search for “laptop battery 5600 new –charger –adapter,” NO quotes.
Packs are the usual thin-wall acer plastic cheapies that disassemble pretty quickly with a minimum of blood and expletives. Unlike other acer packs, these cells are VERY clean with no black goop and clean up quickly with a minimum of elbow grease and NO alcohol in my case.
Be sure and use the picture zoom function and check the cell origin (although 2800 Japanese Sanyo or Panasonic made-in-Japan cells would be ducky also).
There are quite a few of these 56wh new Acer battery packs on ebay, not all from this seller. I would assume they contain the same purple Samsungs. CHECK THE SELLERS’ FEEDBACK RATINGS. I +NEVER+ buy anything from anyone with feedback less than 99%.
I’m sure I made a mistake some place in writing up this info (And I’m also sure that I will hear about it.) I am in NO WAY in cahoots with the seller.
Hope this helps!!!
