3x Molicel IHR-18650B 2250mah 10.8V 24Wh
Just 45 cents per cell for 2250mah Molicel IHR-18650B cells. That's $55/kWh! These cells test on average 94.4% (2123mah) on our spot test of 1000 cells using a Zanflare testing array. These batteries rarely get cycled and this particular Molicel model is trusted by the medical industry which means these are put through rigorous tests so you can expect the highest quality cell which also reflects how well they are testing still after light use. These are made for the Lifevest jackets. Very small percentage of the cells tested degraded with over 90% testing near full capacity or better.
Photos 3-11 Show the easy process get the cells out. All you need is a flat head screw driver and a pair of flush cutters. We have cutters in our accessories area for just $1.99. The 3 cells are glued together so you will likely need to put some kapton tape over the small tears when you remove the cells. Or you can simply leave them in 3s form and maybe connect 5 of those modules in series to make a 15s pack. This is a great source of cells that are testing like new. Pry the cap off, snip the sides, slide out the buttons, notch the bottom, pry the case outwards and you're all set. There is some glue so you can use a piece of kapton tape to cover the slight tears in the cell wrapper. Overall these are not too bad to salvage the cells out of once you get the hang of it. Best part is these cells test amazing.
There is also gold on the boards that you will be able to salvage
