    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
    This is an almost accurately rated rewrap of the 21700 size version of the Sony VTC6A. It appears identical to, and performed essentially identically to, the VTC6A’s I recently tested.

    The QSO’s I tested have the tiny QR code square on the bottom, same as the VTC6A’s I tested.

    The two cells I tested delivered 4117mAh and 4118mAh at 800mA (0.2C) down to 2.5V.

    I do not have the datasheet for this cell. I am ESTIMATING this QSO’s ratings to be 30A continuous and 4000mAh rated/minimum, 4100mAh typical/nominal.

    Two cells were donated for the purposes of testing by 18650batterystore (18650 Battery Store | 18650 Lithium Ion Batteries, Chargers and Wraps). 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 = 10.9Wh (Watt-hours) average.
    - Total energy delivered down to 3.2V at 20A continuous = data not available, see the VTC6A.
    - Total energy delivered down to 3.2V at 30A continuous = 8.1Wh (Watt-hours) average.

    I want to work for the vaping community full time!
