As I open up more Vanon batteries, I'm convinced that several unrelated factories are producing "Vanon" batteries. There is absolutely no consistency to their packs. So besides laptop cells in a power tool pack, and the usual overstated capacity (1.5 Ah cells in a pack labeled 2.0Ah), I am now finding what appear to be genuine but dented/damaged/used Sanyo and Sony high drain cells in some of their Dyson V6 replacement batteries. Cuz honestly, who would fake a Sanyo LOL. But in all seriousness, I would avoid Vanon just for the fact that you have no idea what's going to be inside. And some of the BMS's I've been seeing don't even monitor each cell's voltage, yikes!

Nice! Project Farm did a test of these batteries. Also Whatlet. Compared these against a legit DeWalt battery

This is a great video. The results are consistent with my experience. Too many misleading such videos on YouTube. Hope this video can change some people's mind.
It looks like all Vanon batteries using 1.5Ah cells, no matter what is marked on the battery. This is really false advertisement but seems there's not much we can do about it. Is this true?

I have been harvesting ceels for a powerwall project and recieved some knock off makita batteries which must be from Vanon. The cells are definately not Samsung.
On the cells it is clearly written (+vanon 18650LD15 20190716 3.6v) All these cells have had 100% failure and none have been able to be reused in my project nor would i use them if they were working as they are by the looks of things cheap import cells.

Not worth the risk recycle them and let them go to a better place
