My KLIC-7004 battery was almost dead so i decided to replace the Li-ion cell in it. After peeling the sticker off i found the following marking stuck on the sticker: RHD563436A FTAABFE 3.7V where 563436 is the size of the original cell: 5.6x34x36mm. On Queen Battery's website i found a Sanyo UF553436G which is only 0.1mm thinner and tested it.
I also can be used to replace the cell in Kodak KLIC-7005, Fujifilm NP-40, NP-40N, Pentax D-LI8, Samsung SLB-0737, SLB-0837, Panasonic CGA-S004 series batteries.

Tests were done using ZKETECH EBC-A20, which supports up to 20A discharge, 4-wire measurement and is PC-connected.

I've used version 3.0 of my battery holder based on 0.5mm thick pure copper terminals

I've followed all the prescriptions of the IEC61960-2003 standard concerning battery's capacity measurement. Before each discharging cycle each battery was charged at standard current mentioned in its datasheet to charge end voltage (4.2V) (cut-off at 0.1A, which is the lowest supported by EBC-A20). Before each discharging or charging i've held a 1-1.5hrs pause. The environment temperature was 23.5-24.5°C. To be sure in results i've done each test minimum twice.

SANYO UF553436G
The cell which i've tested has two markings:
1. printed on the metal case:
   C
207   0649
2. engraved on the metal case:
SI7 Q1L
036 448

The contact in the middle is the negative and the second one with the whole case is positive.

Specifications from SANYO UF553436G datasheet (pdf):
Rated capacity: 800mAh at 20°C
Minimum capacity: 800mAh at 25°C
Typical capacity: 830mAh at 25°C
Nominal voltage: 3.7V
Standard charge current: 800mA
Charge end voltage: 4.2V
Charge cut-off current: 16mA
Max. discharge current: 1.6A
Discharge cut-off voltage: 2.5V
Maximum weight: 15.6g

The measured weight of my UF553436G cell is 15.29g

SANYO UF553436G capacity test results:
At 0.2C (0.16A) its capacity is higher than declared - 844mAh and even at 1A discharge it remains more than 730mAh! 2A rate is higher than the maximum discharge current (1.6A) but i tested to see how much does the performance go down. UF553436G is not a high drain cell so there is no surprise - the capacity is about half of the rated but the curve still looks nice!

KODAK KLIC-7004's cell replacement
I peeled off the sticker, took out the cell with PCB attached, disconnected the PCB from the cell and spot welded it to the new cell. Watch the video for details:
Kodak KLIC-7004, KLIC-7005, Fujifilm NP-50, NP-50A, NP-40, Pentax D-LI68, D-LI122, D-LI8, Panasonic CGA-S004, Samsung SLB-0737

SANYO UF553436G costs US$2.5 (without shipping) while noname replacement batteries for KLIC-7004 cost more than US$7 on eBay.

Samsung 50E capacity test - 5000mAh or not?

Samsung INR21700-50E is a 21700 size cell which is being sold as 5000mAh one while in its official datasheet the capacity is mentioned as "Min. 4900mAh". I've tested it to find out it's real capacity.

The battery was bought from my reliable supplier (Queen Battery) and tested with ZKETECH EBC-A20 and a self-made battery holder. It's a PC-connected battery tester supporting 4-wire measuring and discharging at up to 20A.

Li-ion 21700: LG M50 5000mAh vs Samsung 48G 4800mAh discharge capacity test

Hi guys! I've tested two high capacity 21700 cells - LG M50 (5000mAh) and Samsung 48G (4800mAh). The latter i had already tested before and the re-testing of another cell showed almost no difference with previous test results. The M50 is a new cell which is being sold as 10A one, but in its datasheet the maximum discharge current is mentioned as 7.28A. Nevertheless i've also discharged it at 10A to look at it's behavior.

LG M36 vs Samsung 36G capacity test - 3600mAh or just marketing?

The first 3600mAh Li-ion battery in 18650 format appeared 4-5 years ago. It was Panasonic NCR18650G. But it disappeared from the market very quickly and since then there was no 3600mAh cell you could buy (except fakes on eBay). Now two of top manufacturers, LG and Samsung, offer their cells, which are being sold as 3600mAh ones - LG INR18650 M36T and Samsung INR18650-36G. Let's check if they are real 3600mAh ones.

I've upgraded my battery holder to the version 3.0

LG F1L vs Panasonic NCR18650B capacity test - the 3400mAh Li-ion cells' battle

Panasonic NCR18650B is probably the most popular Li-ion battery of 18650 size. Though it's rated at 3350mAh it's usually listed as 3400mAh on suppliers' sites as well as LG F1L. They are both 3350mAh cells with 4.87A maximum discharge rating so they must be compared.
I've tested both cells at 0.65A (0.2C), 2A and 5A.

As always the tests were done using ZKETECH EBC-A20, which supports up to 20A discharge, 4-wire measurement and is PC-connected.
