    These tests below only note the estimated ratings for these batteries at the time I tested them. Any battery that is not a genuine Samsung, Sony, LG, Panasonic, or Sanyo can change at any time! This is one of the hazards of using “rewrapped” or batteries from other manufacturers so carefully research any battery you are considering using before purchasing.

    Misusing or mishandling lithium-ion batteries can pose a SERIOUS RISK of personal injury or property damage. They are not meant to be used outside of a protected battery pack. Never exceed the battery’s current rating and keep the plastic wrap and top insulating ring in perfect condition.

    Testing batteries at their limits is dangerous and should never, ever, be attempted by anyone who has not thoroughly studied the dangers involved, understands the risks, has the proper equipment, and takes all appropriate safety precautions.

    If the battery has only one current rating number, or if it only says "max", then I have to assume the battery is rated at that current level for any type of discharge, including continuous.

    Bottom Line
    These are production Samsung 40T cells, identical in appearance and performance, that are accurately rated by Enerdan. They are from the same date/batch of OEM-wrapped production 40T’s that I recently tested, number 2IA3.

    The 40T is a fantastic cell, especially for regulated mods at under 25A/75W or so. At above 25A/75W or so the Samsung 30T is the better performer. The 40T is best at moderate power levels where it can be the most efficient. These 40T’s are still amazing 30A batteries though!

    If you are running your mod at around 75W per battery you will have to try both the 30T and 40T to see which performs better for the way you vape. It’s just not possible to predict.

    The two cells I tested delivered 4126mAh and 4130mAh at 0.8A (0.2C) down to 2.5V. This is fantastic consistency and is typical of the performance of cells from the large manufacturers.

    I am estimating the ratings of these production cells, from batch 2IA3 and later, to be 30A with a temperature-limited rating of 40A (if kept below 80°C) and 4000mAh. Earlier versions are still being rated at 25A/35A.

    Two cells were donated for the purposes of testing by Enerdan (ENERdan GmbH – briniging positive energy!). Thank you!

    Performance Specs
    - DC Internal Resistance = 13.8mOhms (milliohms) average for the two cells.
    - Total energy delivered down to 3.2V at 10A continuous = 11.4Wh (Watt-hours) average
    - Total energy delivered down to 3.2V at 20A continuous = 10.0Wh (Watt-hours) average
    - Total energy delivered down to 3.2V at 30A continuous = 8.3Wh (Watt-hours) average

    I want to work for the vaping community full time! If you feel what I do is worth a couple dollars a month and you would like early access to battery availability and testing news and a say in what I test then please consider becoming a patron and supporting my testing efforts: Battery Mooch is creating battery tests and educating vapers | Patreon.
