    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 a rewrap of the Samsung 24S, appearing and performing identically to the Samsung. It is a great performing “power” cell for unregulated/mechanical devices. As of May 2018 the Samsung 24S hits harder than any other 18650 except the Samsung 20S down to about 3.4V. Below that point the 24S’ greater capacity holds its voltage up for longer.

    I don’t have the datasheet yet to know the ratings for the Samsung 24S but I am estimating them to be 25A continuous (possibly higher, depending on Samsung’s criteria for rating this cell) and 2300mAh minimum and 2400mAh typical. If needed, these ratings will be adjusted once I see the Samsung’s datasheet. I am rating this Vapcell the same.

    This Vapcell has an accurate capacity rating. I do not know if its current rating is a bit exaggerated or not until I see the Samsung 24S datasheet.

    Two cells were purchased for the purposes of testing by me.

    Thanks for all the continued testing Mooch! I hope you are growing nearer to meeting your goal! :)
