Thread: 26500 rechargeable batteries

  1. #1

    Default 26500 rechargeable batteries

    Anyone knows where I could purchase new 26500 li-ion rechargeable cells? AW stopped carrying them and I have a hard time finding another reliable source.

    Thank you...

    DX used to have them. I am not sure if they still do.
    Quality and capacity is not as good but AFAIK that's the only choice for protected 25500
    Protected one is about 54mm long.

    Mate, I'm sorry to have gotten your hopes up but I forgot about this:

    From: http://auspost.com.au/personal/dange...-personal.html

    "
    Lithium batteries

    All lithium batteries are now classified as dangerous goods and cannot be carried by air.
    Australia Post cannot accept lithium batteries or devices containing lithium batteries for mailing overseas or for domestic air carriage. Parcels containing these items will now only be transported within Australia and by road only."

    Sorry mate.

    No worries I did realized this...looking for a friend in Sydney who could perhaps get them for me as I'm expecting a shipment from him soon. Will keep you posted...

    Not sure about actual sources, but it seems that a few "vaping" suppliers stock the eFest 3000mAh IMR 26500s; these seem about the best "known/tested" available at the moment? The ones on DX, Fasttech etc still seem to be unknown quantities; the "5000mAh / 5500mAh" ones seem to be reviewing as only about 3000mAh if that, and no known supply/quality consistency
