Test/Review of Kinoko IMR17650 1200mAh (Red)

Kinoko IMR17650 1200mAh (Red)

Official specifications:

  • Lowest Discharge Voltage: 2.5V
  • Nominal Voltage: 3.7V
  • Peak Voltage: 4.2

The 17650 cells does usual have considerable lower capacity than 18650, this is also the case here, but the current handling capability is very good.


The main reason for using IMR is to get high current and this cell has good high current performance.
Because the battery is from an unknown manufacturer I will limit my rating to acceptable.
