A high current and high capacity 18350 cell.

Up to 10A (Rated maximum current) the discharge curves look good, the overload at 15A is not as nice.

Temperature stays reasonable at 10A


These batteries looks very good and are from the new generation of high power 18350 cells.

Notes and links

The batteries was supplied by Vapcell for review.

How is the test done and how to read the charts
How is a protected LiIon battery constructed
More about button top and flat top batteries
Comparison to other LiIon batteries

Looks good.

The label indicates “middle drain” rechargeable battery.
So will there be a “high drain” version? :person_facepalming:

Not sure where to source it for shipping to our country though…

Middle drain must be compare to a 18650, for 18350 this is high drain.

Looks slightly worse than Aspire.
Any idea what might be the reason?

Where did u get these?

Where did u get these?

Directly from Vapcell, they have send me a couple of cells to test. The information is also in the review.

Looks like they have the same problem of big sample variations like the Aspire. Better buy a bunch and pick out the winners.

You seem to be missing the discharge curve for the other battery at 5A in your comparator.

Yes, one of my test stations have been skipping a curve once in a while, I hope it is fixed now.
Because I do not check each battery after testing it, but first when I publish the review, I did get a couple of batteries with one or two missing traces.

I got in touch with Judy from Shenzhen Vapcell Technology on Alibaba and bought 10 of these 18350 cells. She was really communicative and I can recommend dealing with her. They will send a PI (pro forma invoice) with a request to pay with PayPal.

I bought 10 to make the shipping costs worthwhile but would like to resell 6 of them, preferably in just one or two shippings. They will be cost price plus shipping (worldwide), so 3 batteries cost $4.58x3 + $5.30 = $19.04 (so $6.34 per battery). All 6 is double that because the shipping appears simply double. No tracking, no markings on the bubble mailer to make the costs affordable. Oh, and without those nice pouches because they make the package too thick to send as a letter (and too heavy too)


I just tested capacity of 2 cells in the Opus (which usually tests a bit higher than HKJ, but now it is the same).

Sorry to say but these #@%@ns look to be all over the place here and there at the E-CigaretteForum clearly bribing reviewers to show with a product which hardly can be purchased outside of usual sources for far western vapers. They also fear stating the underwrap OEM cells used in their products, this alone is enough cause for concern in my honest opinion.

Cheers :-)

I’m not sure where that rant comes from, perhaps you must be a vaper to understand it. If Vapcell has their distribution not sorted out well, it is a bit dumb and it costs them money, but I do not see why they should be condemned or blocked for that. (it was pretty easy to order directly through them though) And they are one of many companies that are not open about how and where they produce, nothing uncommon about that. And we know it anyway :slight_smile:

I do not like suggestion about being bribed in my reviews.
I have never been paid for a review (I use more than $100 each month on product to review). I do sometimes get product for free to review and it is stated in the reviews.

Sorry, Vapcell was not of the bribing companies, my mistake. This stuff was mentioned by Mooch at the E-CigaretteForum with certain rewrapping companies and only with the purpose of being pushed up in the reviewing queue. I do neither vape, djozz.

And sorry about the other stuff, HKJ. I didn't state you were bribed about this, which anyway is no reason for a biased evaluation. My ranting was more a wtf thing with regards to their lack of market presence.

Cheers ^:)

I understand companies that offer that, it is very frustrating to wait many months for a reviewer to publish a review. I have also been offered that a few times, but always answered no.

Henrik, thats why I first and foremost turn to YOUR reviews when I have to divert from my usual cells (30Q) and/or chargers. No offence ment to all others who put a lot of blood, sweat and tears in their reviews. But that’s the way it is.

If anyone from the US is reading this, Liionwholesale has them in stock. 99% sure these are the same as Aspire, and perhaps the Keeppower from same yodeli battery factory in China. Also, the iJoy, Aspire, & Vapcell 26650, 18650’s from the same yodeli factory.

Yes, little sense for US folks to buy the 6 pieces that I have for sale, but for the rest of the world it may be interesting enough.

I wouldn’t mind two of thos nice ans shiny purple wrapped Vapcell 18350’s Djozz………….I wouldn’t mint at all.
Also: no shipping charges within Amsterdam!
