A BATTERY MOOCH POST: Brillipower Pink 5000mAh 40A 26650…comically overrated, very long, not IMR

This cell has “Max Continuous 40A ” on the wrap but this is a ridiciculous overrating. The “Pulse 85A” rating is completely useless. At 85A the voltage dropped to my 2.5V cutoff in a fraction of a second.

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

This is a very long cell, averaging 67.3mm, and will not fit in some mods. I do not have a list of which.

Compared to the Shockli Black 20A 5500mAh this Brillipower hits a little harder at the start but performs worse for the rest of the discharge. For low to moderate power vaping the Shockli is a better choice.

I am rating this Brillipower cell at 20A and 5000mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by voltage sag.

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