I found this forum on the internet while trying to get some info regarding some 18650 cells.

I dont have big projects in mind, I just have a few cells that I harvested from a cordless Dyson V6, a few cells that I still need to harvest from a dell laptop and a few more Ryobi power packs that for some reason some of the cells died.
I need to figure out if I can use some of these cells in some of my flash lights.
Also looking to modify an eiger under the hood work light.
If you are in UK, these under the hood lights were sold at Homebase, and now and then you still see them on ebay, gumtree etc. These eiger lights are very similar, if not the same, under the name Braun in USA.
I will upload a pic of the cell that came inside this eiger light as I never seen one 18650 cell with the same reference, so other users can have a look.

welcome,just recenty batteryhookup was selling batteries which looked alot like that. Ebay has 1s protection circuits that go on the side of an 18650. sounds like you are getting addicted to lithium (batteries).

Thank you.
I like to recycle stuff to other projectsas much as I can.
I hate to put things in the bin so ifI can use them somewhere, that is good.
