    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
    While this cell has an exaggerated current rating is it a good performer. It is identical in appearance and similar in performance to the Golisi S35 and Efest 35A 3700mAh 21700’s.

    Both of these Listman cells had a bit over 4000mAh capacity. While this is a good thing it indicates that this cell might not be the exact same cell as used by Golisi and Efest.

    Upon learning that this cell had an exaggerated rating, iJoy (the ones who donated the cells for testing) told me that they will instruct the factory to change the rating on the wrap from 40A to 30A. While I would definitely prefer that a cell was tested and rated accurately before being sold I am glad that iJoy is willing to change the exaggerated current rating.

    There are earlier versions of this cell with a useless 60A “pulse” rating on the wrap. This was a ridiculous rating and I am glad it was removed.

    I am estimating this cell’s ratings at 30A and 3800mAh minimum, though you might get more capacity from them than that.

    Two cells were donated for the purposes of testing by iJoy (IJOY - The World Leading Vape Manufacturer-Avenger/Diamond/Captain/Capo/20700). Thank you!

    Continuous Current Discharge Graph

    Ratings Graphic

    Performance Specs
    DC Internal Resistance = 16.3mOhms (milliohms) average for the two cells.
    Total energy delivered down to 3.2V at 10A continuous = 10.5Wh (Watt-hours) average
    Total energy delivered down to 3.2V at 20A continuous = 8.2Wh (Watt-hours) average
    Total energy delivered down to 3.2V at 30A continuous = 5.5Wh (Watt-hours) average

    Well its good to know there are more options coming along to fit in my squeezers and Furyan mech squonkers. Sooner or later I'll pick up a tube that accommodates all the newer cell sizes, but until then, these 2x700's are kicking ... in my squonk mods and the extra capacity really makes all the difference.

    Too bad we don't know for sure who is making these. I believe the Efest 21700 battery I'm so fond of is a rewrap of the Golisi, but isn't the Golisi a rewrap too? If so, who is the main manufacturer?

    Just typing out loud Mooch, so no need to answer those questions as I know your SUPER busy. Just curious myself.

    Thanks for this one. I will be taking to the Googles to search this one out! I'm a battery junkie which is good since I run a lot of unregulated mods. Recycling out my older cells is just as important to me as making sure my wraps are kept in tip-top shape!

    It's not the good performance but the lies that hurt the most

    At least they listened and changed their ratings accordingly. Not a lot of companies act like that.

    They’re all, I believe, a wrapping of a China-manufactured cell. I don’t know who makes it though.

    Oh wow. Good to know. Eventually the name of the cell should come to light. Im getting such great battery life out of single cell setups nowadays with all these phenomenal cells coming out.

    I am however, getting below average currency-life out of my wallet nowadays with all these phenomenal cells coming out.
