I have made posts about this. Thought I may have had a thread about it and did not. So I am starting this after I could not specifically find others who have!

I will start with this graph by MOOCH from last June. My experience seems to parallel the graph, although I still need to do an updated Capacity test.

Here are 2 X VTC6 that I bought on 8.22.2016. BOTH cells have 100 cycles.

Actually that is a bit high because these cells are NOT 100% cycles. The batteries are only discharged to ~ 3.80V.Used for 15 minutes each in my M2Xvn.

So this is OFF THE CHARGER VOLTAGE/1 Hour later and then every day for Four[4] days

CELL #1 *************************CELL#2Off the charger=4.20V***** ********Off the charger=4.22V

1 HOUR later=4.16V* **************1 Hour later=4.17V

1 Day later=4.14V *****************1 Day later=4.145V

2 Days later =4.13V**************** 2 Days later=4.14V

3 Days later=4.125V**************** 3 Days later =4.13V

4 Days later =4.12V ****************4 Days later=4.13V

That is 0.08V loss in 4 days for CELL #1 and 0.09V loss in 4 days for cell #2. The VTC6 has MORE voltage loss When I compare them to other cells the same age and older.

Example 2 X Vappower IMR 26650 that are the same age, charged to the same voltage on the same charger[ARE-C2] have resting voltages of at least 4.18V[Usually 4.19/4.20V] after 4 or 5 days.My 30Q that also are the same age NEVER have a resting voltage lower than 4.17 after 4 days or so.

I know 0.04V/0.05V is minimal in terms of run time. On the other hand[more time will tell] I definitely feel that my experience w/ VTC6 parallels "MOOCH'S" even though they have not been through that vigorous test that he did.

Brand new cell #1 was3006mAh. Cell #2 was3022mAh. Both discharged @ 1Amp.HKJ @ 1Amp=2978mAh.

I will have to follow this up with a another CAPACITY test on my OPUS. That will determine a bit more. I will post that in the next few days when I get the results.

I admit I am obsessed with numbers! At this point, strictly by Voltage loss, I feel that they are degrading a bit faster than the aforementioned cells above[V'Power/30Q]

TIME IS YOURS...............
