    While the test results are hard data, the conclusions and recommendations I make based on these tests are only my personal opinion based on my criteria for setting a rating. Carefully research any cell you are considering using before purchasing.

    Testing cells at their limits is dangerous and should never, ever, be attempted by anyone who has not thoroughly studied the dangers involved and how to minimize them.

    If the cell has only one current rating number on it, or if it says "max" then I have to assume that the company is stating that the cell can be discharged at that current level in any way, including continuously.

    Bottom Line
    For the GeekVape Aegis mods that ship with a battery, this is it. This a great performing cell, easily one of the top three 26650’s. It is equal to the Aspire 4300mAh (test results soon) and almost equal to the iJoy 4200mAh. The Golisi is identical in appearance to the Aspire and only the surface finish of the top contact metal differentiates it from the iJoy.

    I will be retesting the iJoy again soon to see if these three might all be the same cell.

    This cell runs a couple of degrees cooler than the iJoy so it earns a 31A continuous rating versus the 30A rating of the iJoy. You will not notice a difference this small in use though. The iJoys I tested in September, 2016 hit a little bit harder though.

    I am rating this Golisi cell at 31A and 4300mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) rating is 40A, limited by voltage sag. I’m not bothered by Golisi’s 35A rating because it’s so close to mine and is still lower than my MVA rating.

    The two cells that were tested were donated for testing by Geekvape (www.geekvape.com). Thank you!

    Comments
    • At 0.5A continuous this cell delivered 4323mAh. This is typical performance for a 4300mAh rated cell at 0.5A so I am rating it at 4300mAh.
    • Geekvape paid a fee to be moved to the front of the testing queue, which currently has an 8-10 week backlog. This cannot influence my test results as they pay in advance and I don’t care if any company never donates batteries again. My reputation is a lot more important than any battery donation or payment.
