These used Sanyo 18650 lithium ion batteries were pulled from laptops and other low-drain devices. These are various Sanyo part numbers and ring colors, with ratings between 2000 and 2200mAh. All of these cells have actual capacity above 75% of rated* capacity. We have seen numerous cells at or around 2300mAh using Opus analyzers.
Part numbers may include:
NOTE: Sanyo part numbers are incredibly difficult to read, so we typically go off of wrap and ring colors. Even these might vary in appearance. We do our best to match cells to their true capacities, but cannot guarantee that we will get it right 100% of the time.
These are used cells. They were charged to 4.2v, left to sit for at least one week, then discharge tested at 500mA. We may wrap cells in new heat shrink if the original wrapping was significantly damaged. These may still be delivered with adhesive or tape still attached, or damaged heat shrink. Check out or selection of pre-cut heat shrink and adhesive rings to customize your build.
Lithium batteries can only be shipped ground. We ship our lithium batteries in accordance with all US laws. Batteries are not eligible for free shipping.
*Our charger/testers have a range of 2.8 - 4.2v; we find that manufacturers often specify a greater range (2.5 - 4.35v, for example), especially on higher-capacity cells. We make slight adjustments for 'effective capacity' to account for this. Capacity is written on each cell.
