Bottom Line: This “40A” Enook has a ludicrously exaggerated current rating and an exaggerated capacity rating, it is only a 10A 3000mAh cell. At 40A continuous, it delivered only 31mAh down to 3.2V.
Basen did the same overrating with their 40A 3200mAh cell but they used a rewrapped Panasonic. Both cells are among the most overrated I have ever seen…shameful.
This Enook’s appearance is identical to the 10A 3200mAh LG MH1 but it has a lower capacity than the MH1 and performs worse. It seems to be a lower grade MH1.
I am rating it at 10A and 3000mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) rating is 15A, limited by temperature and extreme voltage sag. The 18650 ratings table has been updated to include this cell.
– There is no 18650 that can have a factory/manufacturer rating over 30A.
– There is no 3000mAh 18650 that can have a rating over 20A.
– There is no 3100mAh-3500mAh 18650 that can have a rating over 10A.
– There is no 18650 with a capacity rating over 3600mAh.
