Sofirn SP70 Alone $50, PM for AMZ US CODE(LIMITED)

Another option is LiitoKala Lii - 50A 5000mAh 26650 Li-ion Rechargeable Battery at GearBest. The last ones I got from them were the real deal. (They are Out of Stock atm but should be restocked in a few days according to GB.

Some of them do work in series, but it is a random thing. So count on having to solder b(. )( .)b or use a battery connector like I posted a couple of days ago if you get these.

Very good battery in my experience.

Does any one know if the Liitokala black 50A5000mah 26650,s sold on Aliexpress Liitokala Charger Battery Store are legit.

Look at those cheap prices. $3.43/battery if you buy 10 of the black wrapper batteries. However, the “50A” is NOT the current rating; its the part number.

One of the light blue wrapper batteries with the 50A in its title is rated at 15A in the description.

I've bought 3 times from - no problems. Bought Vapcell VTC5D's, 25S's, 36G's, 2070C's, Vapcell 18350 1100. All are pretty good and hard to find cells. Stocks though are up/down on cells like these, no matter where.

The Gold Golisi 26650 is the best in class I’ve found to date, it works in series and is only 5A behind a 30T in max output in my simple tests.

If overseas ordering is an issue, there are options. Might cost a buck or two more, might have to look for em, but they’re out there…

It could go either way.

Just bought another pair of the GOLISI 26650 4300's for $19.55 shipped - regular price, $6.30 each plus shipping.

Here's the direct link, say'n only 16 left:

I'm a huge fan of the Shockli 5500 mAh from Mtn. Mine work in series in my L6 and don't disappoint. I have heard reports that the current stock at Mtn doesn't work in series anymore, though.

If anyone is planning to use a spacer of similar style to the Jaxman version, be sure to bypass the springs.

If your not sure, don’t buy them.

Just a reminder about the Liitokala Store at Aliexpress: Here is a negative review to consider…

Is that the LiitoKala Store, the LiitoKala Official Store, the Official LiitoKala Store, the Famous LiitoKala Store, the Original Famous LiitoKala Store, the Real Original LiitoKala Store, the Original Real LiitoKala Store, or something else?

A big problem is that there are so many Liitokala stores or Official Liitokala stores that you can’t tell one from the other. If you dig deeper you can see that each store has an ID number. I’ve ordered some legit cells from an Aliexpress store, but they shipped from Turkey and took like 5-6 weeks to arrive to the US. This was over a year ago. Here is the store link if anyone wants it.
To better identify this store, they have 37,900 followers and are a “Supplier Since 09 Jan 2013”. I can’t find their store #.


Anyone else find it strange the vast majority of Australia is dark and full of dangerous animals yet you cant get flashlight batteries or guns?

As I stated above… I have never to date gotten a ’fake’ Liitokala 26650 from GearBest or Banggood. They have all been real.

Best I remember from threads & posts long past, they were rated 20A continuous & 30A pulse.

I have 22 of them, purchases ranging from when they first came out to about 6 months ago IIRC.

I’ve managed to get batteries from Mountain Electronics (max of 4 I think, I only got 2), but I’m concerned that if I buy some from AliExpress they’ll be rejected :confused: don’t really want to drop ~$30 and for it to never arrive.

(It’s 8am in Sydney now :wink: )

Those 2 specific stores try to maintain their good reputation of not selling fakes.

Aliexpress, on the other hand, is like eBay. It’s made up of many small stores and sellers and it’s hard to tell who exactly your buying from and if their feedback is good or fabricated.

I make a point to follow the legit stores as well as put the items I’m interested in on my wishlist. When dealing with items from stores I’m not familiar with I read a lot of store and product reviews before buying.

Try the Vapcell store on aliexpress. It says they ship to AU for free.

Oh lots of them say they do ship to AU - it’s more worrying about customs rejecting due to not playing by their arbitrary rules. I’m planning on getting the Sofirn 5C 26650s :slight_smile:

That makes good sense Jason. :+1:
It’s not worth it ’to me’ to buy from some unknown on AE & risk getting crappy cells to save a few bucks. Only cells I have from AE came in a couple of Sofirn Lights. Those cells seemed to be fine.
I probably would & will buy some at some point from that AE Store BlueSwordM mentioned a few weeks ago when I need some again though. He said she was legit. Here is a link to that site:

Another Recent POST where BSM recommends this AE Store for legit batteries.

I get most of mine from LiIon Wholesale. Wish they had Liitokala 26650’s… :wink:
