    Default Expected 18650 1300mAh Amperage?

    hi all!
    I will ask you to guesstimate on this.
    I am about to change the batts on a 12V powertool which uses 1300mAh batteries 18650.
    I opened up the pack, but the batteries do not mention a specific type/code, only tha maker, Puly, which makes power tool and not specifically batteries.
    So there is no way to find the battery code an specs.
    Goal is to determine the maximum amp draw of the replacement batteries, in order not to sacrifice power for capacity.

    So what can the amp draw of industrial 18650 1300mAh batteries be?

    It could be anything. These are most probably high current cells. Play it safe and get some high quality, high drain cells, like Sony/Murata VTC-5A. You'll enjoy twice the capacity and they have the current capabilities. Just make sure that the charger supplied with the tool can charge them fully. Some of these chargers have cut timers .
