3x Panasonic NCR18650A 2900mAh 18650 cells 10.8V 33WH
Just $1 per cell for 2900mah Panasonic NCR18650A cells. These cells test on average 3,015mah because they rarely get cycled and this particular Panasonic 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. New these cells are rated between 2900-3100mah so these cells as you can see are not used very much and test like new across the board. We tested over 1000 of these cells on our Zanflare testing array so you can know realistically what to expect.
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
