    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    I will admit that I'm unable to off the top of my head give you that info as I've not absorbed it. I would have to refer to others that have bought a lot of batteries for higher current lights. Most of the onus I've seen is on the batteries around 3000mah less on the 2600-2800mah range it is...

    A Li-ion battery working well in extreme cold and heat?

    Until it makes it to the market it is for now nothing but promises. I've seen dozens of hyped battery tech over the last 10-20 years that never was sold on the market and if you go on youtube there are EV battery hypes of new tech every week now that are supposed to "change the game" but we...

    Should I go with a protected or unprotected battery?

    Protected vs unprotected is a case by case basis. From what I've gleaned most devices designed for use with lithium ion have protections built into it and a lot aren't designed for the longer length the addition of a protection circuit adds. Also protection circuits can add more resistance into...

    Can I save or repurpose this Pelican 2AA

    You may have to cut the tube itself to get to the battery to see what brand it is as I've not had any luck removing stuck alkaleaks. I threw away a mag2AA incan that I stupidly forgot had batteries in it and didn't think about any warranty after I spent half a day digging blackish goo out of it...

    18650 Doesn't Fully Charge

    It doesn't sound like the chargers are at fault but rather the batteries themselves have been damaged and it is possible that they have developed high internal resistance that would cause them to not deliver full power to the light and also in use would cause them to heat up more than normal. I...

    Oh The Irony - Alkaleak

    No, but if one battery leaked in a set I wouldn't think the other 3 are "fine" as chances they share the same issue. I would consider using nimh in it or L92s if it can handle the higher voltage. It may be you could use 3xL92s and a spacer in the meter. You simply cannot avoid leaks if you use...

    Can I save or repurpose this Pelican 2AA

    Contact Duracell before trying anything drastic that could further damage the light and see what they will do about it. It is possible that they will replace the light or reimburse the cost of replacement but not knowing the procedure you may have to mail the light as is to them as I've never...

    Heat Wave 2022

    No, they would instead of going forward/back an hour, they would skip a month and make January after November and put December back after March or something like that.

    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    WIthout going into depth they could likely be 30Q batteries. Ratings on everything usually has a defined range of which is the "norm" for them to fall into. Batteries often list a percentage of the rating that defines the range and It is possible that the 30Q test out to be a little more than...

    Power bank that can be charged with apple "lightning" cord recommendation

    If done properly batteries that are discharged can be charged a lot faster without damage and ramp down in current as it accepts more and more charge. I believe chargers and batteries are more smart now vs when Qualcomm's fast charge 2.0 came out which is what my phone uses. My phone is 5 years...

    Power bank that can be charged with apple "lightning" cord recommendation

    They are most likely in parallel so likely it would overcharge the weaker ones or undercharge all of them.
