    Default Test/review of UltraFire TR18650 5000mAh (Blue) 2018

    UltraFire TR18650 5000mAh (Blue) 2018



    Official specifications:
    • No memory effect, recharge up to 1000 cycles
    • 100% brand new 18650 rechargeable batteries
    • 100% quality Japanese battery cells
    • 100% Q.C. of every battery
    • Capacity: 5000mAh
    • Voltage: 3.7 V
    • Chemistry: Li-ion




    With the above specifications this must be good batteries? Or maybe not!









    The wrapper is, as usual, wrong, there is no PCB in these batteries.



    The batteries can deliver about 2A and has a capacity of 1100mA


















    Conclusion

    I have tested this battery a few years ago and it has not improved with time, it is slightly worse.

    It is a bad battery, with wrong specifications. It is cheaper to buy good batteries!

    Thanks for the test! This is very valuable for dissuading people buying cheap junk batteries.
    And the worst with this battery is not the strongly exaggerated performance specification but the lack of protection while claiming it has it!
