  • Good, but only 560mAh

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Reasonably well made, as far I can see. I have seen some pretty miserable cells in the past. Work as you would expect. Can make a lot of difference in the flashlights that support it.

    Cons:

    The capacity of these is around 560mAh (tested with a 500mA discharge current). This is only around 60% of advertised capacity and much worse than I would have expected given the excellent performance of the sister cells:

    I am using a Trustfire charger:

    OtherThoughts:

    It's obvious, but worth restating that not all the flashlights on the DX site that take AAs take these batteries as well.

    Bottomline:

    I am happy enough with these to buy more, but I would like some with higher capacity.
