I purchased a cheap brick of crap batteries. $10 for 50 Garberiel 6000 mAh 18650’s. I now know they are junk and are only good for playing with while I learn and collect real 18650’s. Lesson learned.
I have some on my BT-C3100 right now to test the actual capacity (I’m going to guess sub 1000 mAh, I’ll report back..) but they wont even charge at a full 1A?!
I have a “real” 18650 that I measured at ~2700mAh using the BT-c3100 and it charges/discharges at 1000mA just fine. But the Garberiel’s wont charge past 650mA.
Each battery seems to randomly stop between 600mA and 650mA when charging and wont go up to the full 1000mA.
Why is that?
What would cause that?
I mean are these batteries even worse than I thought? Or is this something they have intentionally done?
I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
