Vanon Batteries .... Yeh - did they dupe me?
#31
I have a few more photos to add, but I'm going to close this a con job - on one that has contacted me both privately or publicly has got 30q's I'll try upload the last lot of photos I have on my desktop in the next few days. I'm about 40 cycles into testing the cells and to my surprise they are still on or abouts 3000mah for every cycle.

What did you expect? These probably are legit INR18650-30Q and you are cycling them with hardly any load. I've told you, if you really want to test these cells you have to put a load on. Like 10A minimum, ideally 20A. The 30Q are known to be very load resistant, even beyond their official specs. They are proper 20A continuous cells. The cheap cells that most of the 3rd party battery customers get aren't, that's why some people say the battery is alright and some say it's crap. If you are powering a LED lamp or a fan then they are alright, if you are powering your angle grinder they are crap.

Ohwell, live and learn, I suppose.

Those are a lot better results than what others have had. .2Ah short isn't that bad. But still, it's not the claimed/marketed capacity/cell-type

PC component companies do this all the time. They pluck the best CPUs out of the bin and send them to reviewers.

I am just starting to build packs out of 18650s, I am glad this site is available. Thank you.
