Having discovered that recycling bins in various shops are a good source of

lithium battery packs that can be put to various uses, I notice quite a

spread in claimed Ah capacities on the information labels.

The first aquisition was labelled "5.2Ah" - there weren't any parallel

combinations as it contained an uneven number of cells.

The next rescue was marked "4.2Ah", and contained 3 sets of parallel pairs -

so I assume the individual cell capacity is 2.1Ah.

The next was lowest yet at 2.0Ah.

This seems to be quite a spread for apparently identical cells, so I'm

wondering if I'm missing something?!

Thanks for any help.

On a similar note, I bought some Lithium Ion AA batteries from China on Ebay. They claim to be 2.5 amp hours. Yet a 1 amp charger fills them in just over an hour. I suspect they lie about the capacity.

Anything over 2000 mAh claimed for an 18650 cell is probably porkies.

Nitecore sell 2600mAh ones: http://www.nitecore.com/
