I have just pulled a trigger on LiitoKala 26650 5000mah20a continuous discharge and 50a peak. 24 cells for 12s2p battery pack with massive 432WH. You know it’s all for SCIENCE !!
** AND HERE IS THE KICKER THERE IS A KILLER 60% OFF DEAL ON GEARBEST RIGHT NOW - my 12s2p pack -24 CELLS - was only 112 $ !!!**
These are pretty unknown batteries in the ESK8 Scene but right now they are the best 26650 on the market. These cells have been tested pretty well recently and they are TRUE 5000 MAH. More over they 've been proven many times to be a lot more than 5000:
Thanks @NAF it’s great to see new cells on the market that might work for esk8. Looking forward to seeing how they work out for you. When I see new cells for sale, the first thing I wonder is whether the label is presenting accurate information about capacity and discharge (which your links cover well, thanks!)
The other is about the longevity. I think that there are cells that perform well out-of-the-box but don’t last through the anticipated lifecycle. If these hold up well, it’s an awesome deal. It’s exciting to think that we could build a 10S3P 15,000mAh pack for $150usd!
Thats very much true. Most of the companies will “LIE TO THE FACE OF BABY JESUS” with their exaggerated claims about capacity and discharge. As much as I like this esk8 community I pretty much find much more information on batteries done by MOOCH from https://www.e-cigarette-forum.com . He is doing some pretty amazing tests there.
@NAF yes it’s true, the vaping community definitely does their homework when it comes to cells, I find myself unexpectedly at vaping forums pretty often for their battery reviews. Keep us posted once you’ve got your pack built.
I remember a sale from Bestgear recently on Samsung 25r cells. I would have purchased some from Bestgear but they seemed to have mixed reviews. Did you have any problems with the site when buy your cells?
