    Default Energizer makes AA LiFePo4's, or this is chinese fake?



    Found this online, batteries are sold, and by all appearance, they do look legit. Any ideas?

    You can always pick up the phone and call Energizer. They may actually know.

    The fun part is that they "may" actually know. So I ordered, and will have them on hands shortly.

    The wrappers look too creased to be real Energizer, I say they are FAKE.

    Yes, they are fakes. I've ordered two cells.
    One arrived at 3.28 volts, another one at 3.32 volts.
    One took 5mAh charge, another one took 3mAh charge.
    When discharged with 400mA current, one cell delivered 198mAh, another one delivered 422mAh.
    Tests were conducted using miboxer C4.

    But after LiFe mode charge, I forgot to remove them from charger, cycled the charger plug, and charger happily charged them to 4.20 volts!
    Now both cells read 4.17 volts
