Vapcell 18350 10A 1100mah..accurately rated
Bottom Line: This Vapcell 18350 is accurately rated and wasn’t overheating at 10A continuous but, as with most 18350’s, there was a lot of voltage sag at 10A.
The two cells I tested delivered 1139mAh and 1186mAh at 0.5A down to 2.5V, meeting its claimed 1100mAh rating.
As this is the first 18350 I have tested in a long time I can not compare its performance to any others yet but the updated 18350 table will be released in a week or two and as other 18350’s are added it will be easy to compare them.
I am estimating this Vapcell’s ratings at 10A and 1100mAh but due to the normal limitations for any cell this small I recommend staying below 10A for better performance, long cell life, and reduced risk.
I do not yet know who will be selling this cell or when it will become available.
Two cells were donated for the purposes of testing by Vapcell (www.vapcelltech.com).

These tests only note the estimated ratings for these batteries at the time I tested them. Any battery that is not a genuine Samsung, Sony, LG, Panasonic, or Sanyo can change at any time! This is one of the hazards of using “rewrapped” batteries or batteries from other manufacturers so carefully research any battery you are considering using before purchasing.
Misusing or mishandling lithium-ion batteries can pose a SERIOUS RISK of personal injury or property damage. They are not meant to be used outside of a protected battery pack. Never exceed the battery’s continuous current rating and keep the plastic wrap and top insulating ring in perfect condition.
Any rating in my ratings tables can change at any time as different grade cells appear on the market, we get swamped with fakes, or new information becomes available to me. Please, never assume that the ratings in the tables are permanent and will never change! Always download the latest version before considering any cell purchase.
