List of 18650 cells suitable for Esk8?

Hi firstly great forum and have been reading up loads.:slight_smile:

Did search first but am looking for a list of 18650 cells which are considered suitable for esk8

Samsung 25R seems to be on a lot of peoples lists but would be interested in what others have had success with.

Thanks @E-Boarding appreciate the recommendations

Is there an easy way to check if cells are fake?

Weighing them is the easiest way.

@smorto sounds interesting any more info on what a good genuine 18650 cell should weigh?

get it from one of the trusted vendors.
nkon.nl is the place to go for us EU people.
liionwholesale.com for US people.

I think it is between 43 and 45 grams. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

Thanks just weighed one of my Samsung INR 18650 30Q (well regarded in the vaping community) and getting 46.1g. That cell was from a highly trusted source from the uk… Torchy the Battery Boy :slight_smile: finding his website again interesting read :+1:

This one would definitely fail the weight test :fearful:

Check the Samsung Manufacture’s Spec sheet to know the excact weight the 30Q should have .
