Mooch's Recommended Batteries

Published by Mooch in the blog Mooch's blog. Views: 915663


You are responsible for your own safety!
Do not use these tables or any of these batteries unless you fully understand and agree with everything listed below.
  • Use of any of these batteries is AT YOUR OWN RISK.
  • Misusing or mishandling lithium-ion batteries can pose a SERIOUS RISK of property damage, personal injury, or even death.
  • Never use a Li-Ion battery outside of a fully protected battery pack.
  • Never exceed the battery’s true continuous discharge rating or maximum charge rating.
  • Never let it get colder than 0°C or hotter than 60°C, and keep the plastic wrap and 
top insulating ring in perfect condition.
  • Never use a battery that is physically damaged in any way.

Please note the following:
  • There are other good batteries, too many to include.
  • If the batteries you use are not in these tables that does not mean they are bad! Use any battery you want.
  • These are merely my personal recommendations to help you narrow down which batteries to try.
  • Molicels are my choice for “best” for many uses because they are great performing batteries available with recent manufacturing dates. I have not been paid or compensated in any way to say this.
  • Molicels are a little larger than others though so take that into account when choosing a cell,
  • These tables only list batteries based on their performance. I have not tested their cycle life.
  • Privately branded batteries (Imren, Efest, Vapcell, etc.) that were tested more than a few months ago are not included as they might have changed what cells they are wrapping. This includes other size batteries like 26650, 18350, etc.
  • For many batteries the differences between them are small and might not be noticeable. Check the Ratings/Performance tables for details.
