    Default Test/Review of Xtar 18350 900mAh (Black)

    Xtar 18350 900mAh (Black)



    Official specifications:
    • Capacity: 900mAh
    • Voltage: 3.7V 3.33Wh
    • Size: °18.0▒0.2mm x 36.3▒▒0.5mm




    This battery has slightly better capacity than specified.










    The battery does very good up to 2A, at 3A the cells show variations.















    Conclusion

    The battery has good performance and at can match some IMR cells at 2A (It has more capacity and about same voltage).
    I will only rate the battery as acceptable, because it uses an unknown cell.



    Notes and links

    The battery was supplied by Xtar for review.

    How is the test done and how to read the charts
    How is a protected LiIon battery constructed
    More about button top and flat top batteries
    Comparison to other LiIon batteries
    My website with flashlight, battery and charger information: lygte-info.
    More than 200 battery reviews and 80 charger reviews.
    Compare 18650 LiIon batteries or smaller (RCR123, 16340, 14500, 10450) LiIon batteries.

    Very interesting! Easily the highest capacity 18350s I've seen tested. However, I'd be especially impressed if they can maintain this level of performance after very many 3a discharge cycles. I intend to find out.

    Where to buy?

    I hope you will report back when you find out.

    I do not know, but I will expect that any place with Xtar batteries will get this one also.

    It would be great if Xtar could tell us when and where these cells could be bought. Never know, might sell a few that way!
