    Default Test/review of Soshine 16340 RCR-123 700mAh (Black)

    Soshine 16340 RCR-123 700mAh (Black)

    Official specifications:
    • Type: Rechargeable Lithium-ion Cylindrical Cell
    • The voltage of full charge & empty condition is 4.2v & 2.75v respectively
    • Dimension: =16.5+-0.2mm, H=33.7+-0.5mm
    • C5mAh: 700
    • Nominal Voltage: 3.7V
    • Capacity Nominal: 700mAh
    • Capacity Minimum: 700mAh when discharged at 0.2C5mA to 2.50V
    • Recommended Charging Conditions: 100-250mA charge termination control parameters taper current 10mA at 4.1V
    • Maximum continuous discharge current: 1000mA
    • Service Life: 300 cycles (>=80% C5mAh)
    • Weight: Approx.20g
    • Internal Resistance: 80max. at 1000Hz
    • Charging Voltage: 4.100+-0.05V
    • Ambient Temperature Range: Charging: 0~+45, Discharging: -20~+60, Storage: -20~+40

    This cell is CR123 size, but has considerable higher voltage.

    The cell tracks fairly well, especially for 16340 sized cells.


    These cells works fairly well at low to moderate loads, but are not high current cells.

    Notes and links

    Soshine has many different types of CR123 sizes LiIon cells!

    One day i will see a Soshine cell meet or exceed it`s rated capacity, I am certain it will happen.

    Thanks for the review Henrik.

    My first two 16340s were from Soshine, 700mAh protected cells with yellow type. I got them through Orbtronic about 5 years ago. One of them died after about 2 months and would just self-discharge. The second one lasted longer and still had some capacity left (~200mAh) when I finally put it in the recycle bag last week.

    I've never bought a Soshine product again.
