    A standard 2600mAh cell from Samsung.










    Very nice matching of the two batteries and capacity is nearly independent of load. This battery has slightly higher capacity than the 26F model, but lower voltage.















    Conclusion

    This is a very good cell for a standard 2600mAh cell.
    Remember that the cell is unprotected this means it will have higher voltage at "high" load than protected batteries.

    The batteries was supplied by Akkuteile.de for review.

    Good cell manufacturers make good cells.

    Stay with the known players and be happy.

    thanks for the review! very similar curve to the NCR18650B, with the panasonic only showing an advantage at the lower voltages, your single-cell flashlight wouldn't give a damn

    i picked up 100+ for a project before HKJ reviewed it so i'm glad i made the right choice! if only i could decipher the date code on these...

    Excellent review. HKJ!
    Your review shows fairly well what the difference between the 26F and 26H is. Thank you.

    Welcome to the club.

    Do your Samsung 26h cells have an added protection circuit, or do they look exactly like the pictured ones do?

    You should be able to use the Samsung 26h in your P12 and you should be able to charge your Samsung 26h cells up in your NiteCore D2 charger.

    The only issue might be that if your cells have a protection circuit added by a second hand battery rebrander, they might be too long to fit any given light, but you'll know that soon enough.

    Some people like to charge outside, but with a good charger and cells, I don't worry about doing that. Finally, others place the charger in something like a metal stock pot.

    Enjoy.

    I got 4 of these batteries last night, seem to be legit, a solid deal, IMO, cost me 13,51EUR with shipping.
    What I was wondering are the faint markings on them, I think the markings are on the metal battery case itself...
    What do they exactly mean?

    I got a 26H from a local dealer.

    Is it normal that the positive tip does not look centralized? The problem is not the tip, it's the wrapping over the top that is misaligned.

    And the printed markings on the wrapper are wearing off. I must have rubbed my fingers over them after charging and the battery was warm.

    since I have re-wraped mine in clear shrink tubing, they read:
    G077
    291D4
    but they do not look like the product codes that one can find on the pink wrapper
