VariCore batteries

Has anyone bought batteries from <a href=>VariCore?
Their prices seem very low and I wonder if they are too low…
For example <a href=,searchweb201602_5_10152_10065_10151_10068_10344_10342_10343_10340_10341_10304_10307_10301_10137_10060_10155_10154_10056_10055_10054_10059_100031_10099_10338_10339_10103_10102_440_10052_10053_10142_10107_10050_10051_10171_10326_10084_10083_10080_10082_10081_10110_10111_10112_10113_10114_143_10312_10313_10314_10078_10079_10073,searchweb201603_19,ppcSwitch_4&btsid=9ce151a3-097e-491b-804e-eb439a065b12&algo_expid=c5f766b5-c752-4073-907e-1d90f6b44bf0-23&algo_pvid=c5f766b5-c752-4073-907e-1d90f6b44bf0>6*Samsung INR18650-35E for $3.575/cell

Check the shipping on those cells, yes us$15.30 for 4 is a very good price, us 56.42 shipping (to Australia) kills it stone dead }P

I’ll go with BangGood for us$21.99 + free post, I know the Varicore are 3500ma and the 30Q’s are 3000 but at $71.72 I could get 6 30q’s and have enough left for a coffee.

Shipping to Poland is free, so for me that’s real $3.575.

Then the only question for you is are they fakes, if genuine I would be getting a lot of them.

Cheers David

VariCore is Liitokala, so in case of fakes 18650 liitokala would be fake too.

Speadge, can you share the source of this information?
Because they are significantly cheaper than Liitokala’s.

I don’t have some specific url at hand, but it’s general knowledge that liitokala, VariCore and Colaier are products of same parent company.

I don’t think that those batteries are significantly cheaper than Liitokala’s. Prices are pretty much the same (depend from quantity).

Liitokala’s price is already very good, the lowest reputable price that I know. Another 10.6% off seems significant to me.

These look like Sanyo UR18650FMs at rock bottom pricetag:

Not the best cell in the world, but at such price it's raw meat for battery pack building.


I bought some Samsung 30Qs from the official VariCore Aliexpress store and was a tad shocked at what I received -
