GTL 18650 Test
Well , some of you may have noticed the GTL 18650 have hit Ebay . Some may not ! Anyhow , for a while now I have wanted to test them to see just how they perform .
Anyways , these are not protected , and in single cell use , thats just fine with me .
Lenth = 65.8mm
Dia = 18mm
Discharge Capability :
SSC P7 MTE = 2.9A for the first one and 2.96A for the second one
More unprotected battery results soon .
Generic 18650 = 3A
GTL [ 2nd Try ] = 3A and 3.08A
Ultrafire Green = 2.8A
Trustfire = 2.78A
And just for the heck of it , a freshly charged IMR 18650 = 3.3A
All batteries were tested freshly of the charger .
Next Solarforce L2 R2 = 1.6A and 1.62A for the GTL
Ulatrafire Green = 1.58A
Generic 18650 = 1.57A
Trustfire = 1.57A
Ive just started testing so more to come .
I will do a runtime test tomorrow .
GTL is in yellow .. Graph was from my Xtar test , I just added the GTL result .
Wow , as can be seen , the batteries really pump for 25 minutes and then fall flat on there face , as they would say on Mythbusters , BUSTED !!! No way 2800mAh !!
You would be lucky to get 1600mAh , Nice output for a little while ...
Possibly re-badged/labeled 1400 to 1600 capacity batteries / the word Fraud comes to mind , shonky , and a few other choice words come to mind . WORD ! you been told !
Some one had to be the bunny , and I took a bullet for CPF members .
Some one in HK is chewing on my ass after taking a bite out of it !
