Official specifications:

  • Brand: Nitecore

  • Model: NL1485

A protected 14500 battery from Nitecore.

The two cells matches nicely and it can easily live up to its 0.8A rating (it works at 3A) and 850mAh capacity.


Nitecore has a good battery here. The protection is at a fairly high current.

Thanks for yet another very informative review, HKJ.

The Vapcell and Shockli are still the top 2 batteries in this format. Any idea who actually makes them?

Thanks HKJ!
