AUTHENTIC GRADE-A BATTERIES GUARANTEE.
Update: The VTC4 is now readily available. They have been tested and verified authentic. However, they are most likely manufactured in Mainland China now.
The Sony VTC4 was the original high-drain battery, notably brought to public awareness by the vaping community. This cell dates as far back as 2012 and gained such popularity that its demise (Sony pulling it) was met with a high number of counterfeiters looking to profit.
Since then, some things have changed. In 2016, the VTC series is now believed to be produced by Sony in Chinese factories, and the cell is still circulating on the market today.
However, Battery Bro seldom recommends this cell as the chemistry offers very little value compared with newer electrolyte formulations. There are safety issues (this cell should always be used with protective circuitry), and the cycle life is low. Sony also regularly denies its existence. However, it has been time-tested and is still a good choice for some applications.
