Test/review of JSC Energiya ICR18650 2600mAh LITS-2.6 (Blue)

JSC Energiya ICR18650 2600mAh LITS-2.6 (Blue)

Official specifications:

  • Nominal capacity: 2600mAh

  • Nominal voltage: 3.7V

  • Maximum discharge current: 3C (7.8A)

  • Charge voltage: 4.2V (Other specification say: Open voltage 4.1V).

  • End of discharge voltage: 2.75V

  • Cycle life: 300 cycles to 60% (Other specification says: Service life 1000 cycles).

This is a Russian manufactured 18650 cell, neither capacity or current is very impressive.

The two cells tracks reasonable well and the cell can deliver the rated current.


The cells are not impressive in any way, but if the price is right they may be good cells for many applications.

Thanks HKJ!

If the charge voltage is accurate, this cell definitively delivers the claimed specifications and more. This should be the rule, not the exception.
