Sony | Murata VTC5D 18650 2800mAh 25A Battery

This is a long awaited cell from Sony/MuRata to follow the footsteps of the venerable VTC5A, but this cell is a bit above board. This cell hits with a bit more energy with the additional 200 mAh in capacity. That takes this VTC5D to the 2,800 mAh mark in capacity and while still having a tremendously high Maximum Continuous Discharge/Drain Rating of 25 Amps. However, it can be pushed up to 35 Amps with a Required Temperature Cut @ 90 degree Celsius according to the Manufacturer's Data Sheet. The is an amazing cell, that only builds upon where the VTC5A left off. The extra 200 mAh in capacity shows up throughout the entire Discharge with Capacity Graph and not just the tail end of the duration of the discharge cycle. This also helps out with minimizing voltage sag at the upper limits of it's discharging/drain limit. This cell should only be used in Ultra-High Discharge/Drain device(s), where it really performs at its designed performance range.

Reviewer: David Catlin from Springdale, AR United States  
Service was above and beyond.  The four batteries were about half charged when they arrived.  I charged them and used them for a week.  I felt the batteries were not lasting as long as they should. I ran them through my HohmTech  Base first on the "Battery Doctor" mode then the "mAh Detector" mode.  The batteries were not reaching the 2800 mAh level so I did them again.  The average mAh for the batteries were 2655 mAh (145 mAh or 5.2% less than expected, 2614 mAh (186 mAh or 6.6% less than expected), 2679 mAh (121 mAh or 4.3% less than expected), and 2610 mAh (190 mAh or 6.8% less than expected).  They work but not as I hoped.  They are not really better than the less expensive VTC 5A's they were supposed to replace.  The HohmTech Base is less than a year old. They are 2600mAh batteries.
