A BATTERY MOOCH POST: Brillipower Green 4500mAh 80A 26650…laughably overrated, not IMR

This cell has “80A” on the wrap. This is so much of an overrating all I can do is laugh. Even if we consider the 80A rating to be a useless “pulse” rating it’s still grossly overrated. At 80A the voltage dropped to my 2.5V cutoff in a fraction of a second.

The 4500mAh capacity of this cell is also exaggerated. It is a 4300mAh cell, at the most.

The wrap has “IMR26650” on it but I do not know if this cell uses the chemistry associated with the IMR model number prefix.

I am rating this Brillipower cell at 23A and 4300mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by voltage sag. Now that we have better 26650’s to choose from this Brillipower will be removed from my Recommended Batteries table.

With all the other cells that are available to us, without this degree of overrating, this one is a terrible choice and earns a Do Not Buy recommendation from me.

The two cells that were tested were purchased for that purpose by me.
