Note: LG 18650 cells are not authorized or intended to be used as stand-alone, removable, rechargeable power sources for e-cigarette or vaping devices, or to be handled directly by consumers in any manner. Clients who inquire about LG loose cells must intend to manufacture battery packs with proper outer casing, PCM/BMS and protection functions and be able to provide documents to prove this.

The 2013 LG HE2 18650 battery is still a popular choice among modders because of a high discharge rating of 20 amps and economical price. This battery is only rated at 20A, and can probably only sustain 35A in 1 second pulses (like the 25R), but doing so will decrease the cell's cycle life.

Quality guarantee

Battery Bro has been in business since 2014 and has never sold counterfeit cells. We value long-term relationships with clients and encourage our clients to performance test cells against official manufacturer specification sheets.

In Asia, 18650 batteries are binned by quality into A, B, and lower bins. C-bin batteries are often recycled from battery packs. Lower bin batteries will underperform and may be dangerous.
