Thread: Efest 3400MAH went DOA in a week

  1. #1

    Sigh Efest 3400MAH went DOA in a week

    During a a recent purchase from BatteryJunction I saw this 18650 3400mah Efest cell for about $13. Thought it was a good deal there. I am glad I bought it from BattJunction as it will no longer take ANY charge. I know BattJunct will make it right. It is a shame because most of my other 18650 cells are less expensive lower capacity. I was looking forward to longer run times.no idea why it will not charge.

    You can get LG MJ1 or Sanyo GA in both protected and unprotected for a little more than half the price you paid for your Efest.

    They can be had at Liionwholesale, Illumns, IMR batteries w/ Liionwholesale having them in both protected and unprotected versions. an NCR18650 can also be had,,,that will be also half the price or less than what you paid.

    Your welcome. I live near Avonmore,Pa. which is near a town that was called EDRI,,,a small town on the Kiskiminetas River that was wiped out by a flood in 1936.

    ^^^^

    That is good that they took care of you,,,,,,,,any dealer with a good reputation should do just that.

    In the future I would highly recommend the much cheaper priced batteries along with their respective dealers that I mentioned. You are paying a higher cost for a Re-wrapped cell from Batt. Jct.

    When you compare the prices you will see that the majority of Batt. Jct. batteries are overpriced compared to the dealers I mentioned.

    Bottom line for today is you are getting a well deserved replacement.
