  • Perfect unprotected 14500s

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    -Cheap as dirt.
    -Fairly high energy density
    -Around 4.0V after full charge. Remained around 3.7V for most of its charge. Only declined to ~3.2V when near empty.
    -Can handle fairly high discharge rate.

    Cons:

    -Unprotected
    -Failed after more than a year and at least 40 cycles... For $2.20 per battery it was still worth it in my opinion.
    -Probably not actually 900mAh

    OtherThoughts:

    I wish companies started switching to lithium-ion cells instead of standard AA 1.2V cells. These are cheaper and have higher energy density. Most products require higher voltage anyway.

    Bottomline:

    If you need a cheap, unprotected battery. Buy this!
