Intl-outdoor NCR18650A 3100mAh (Black)
- Panasonic 18650A
- Capacity: 3100mAh
- Recommended Max Discharge: 6.2A (2C)
- Full charge: 4.2V
- Nominal voltage: 3.6V
- Cut-off: 2.5V
The cell used can be discharged down to 2.5 volt, in my test I only discharges to 2.8 volt, i.e. I do not measure the full capacity. But then, not all lights will be able to use the full capacity.
Note: The tested batteries are samples, on the production version the diameter might be slightly less.
Each chart has curves for two batteries, but these batteries are nearly identical in performance and the curves are on top of each other.
This battery uses a good cell, this secures many things:
- The batteries does match in capacity, i.e. they can be used in series.
- The battery is very safe.
- The battery has the specified capacity.
The battery has a very high current limit, this does not mean it can sustain more current than other 3100 mAh batteries, but just that the safety circuit will react later.
All in all a very good battery.
