Post by Hummina Shadeeba » Jul 29 2021 1:50pm

They’re not truly “new” but at 97.5% capacity they’re new in my mind. They are stated as 2.5ah cells. 1$ each if u get 200 or more otherwise 1.25 a cell

A123 26650 m1b cells. Lifepo4
I have like 1500.

Is that a discharge module in the pic?

Looks very funky.

If you have difficulty shifting them I would be interested- IF you can manage sea overseas shipping, that is.

Thanks.

It’s a consistent load for testing the cells. I guess that’s a discharge module. Can do up to 3.5amps

Rather ship in USA

Understood.

If you can't shift them I might take 200 off you as a last resort.

Thanks.

Thinking about building a battery pack with these. I'm focused on shipping cost on 224 ct. if you have that many to get rid of?

Oh! thought shipping was extra. Give me a few days to think. Wanting a custom voltage battery around 45v and 30ah.
So how much extra? may take 256. Think 224 would have been 35-40lbs.

Will PM you.

Hi. I've got a USA contact who might be ready to take delivery for me.

If he is, plz let me know how many cells you have left and I can arrange payment ASAP.

Thank you.

Hi. I've got a person in the USA who will take the cells but now there's a new problem!!

Apparently shippers are not happy to ship the cells unless they are in a device

Does anyone know a way around this?

Thanks for your time.

I don't want to pollute this thread but I am a genuinely interested buyer.

ur a help here not a hinderance.

shipping rules are a pain and i avoid them. as it is ive just shipped usps ground in blank boxes. its not legal but i dont fear the cells blowing up and theyre all detached and well packed. i have only shipped a couple boxes though. not as safe a cheese but unless they run a drill through the box...

but id rather go legal if you have advice or links. this is one of the reasons i want to ship locally or better yet get someone to pick them up. ... usps priority fixed rate boxes can take 70lbs i think

but i can put the batteries all back in their "device" to ship them maybe. they were part of a back up power supply and ..actually ive gotten rid of the majority of the device but they are contained still within parts of it

The last time I shipped some batteries they went USPS Priority mail ground and I declared the contents as unsafe when I shipped in person. Also told the clerk that I was shipping lithium batteries not in a device. Have the rules changed?

They did that at the post office. Also it scans as priority ground. No need for extra labels when shipping domestic.

However I couldnt ship a few tiny lipos via USPS to Canada a couple of years back unless it was in a device. The only major carrier willing to ship wanted $50 for an under 2 pound package so that was a no go.

Weird shipping rules that change constantly. But I think I can still order lipos from Rc shops in Canada so not sure how that works either.

I believe I can ship these legally using fixed rate usps boxes with this 3480 label attached for loose cells. I just shipped 100 cells in a medium sized box for 17$ and had lots of room still.


A capacity percentage would be based on the stated capacity of the cell (2.5ah) and zero right? so if a cell shows 2.4ah capacity on a one amp discharge from 3.6 to 2.5 (their stated voltage range) that would be 96% capacity and not based on the cell’s end of cycle life which I think is at 80% of initial capacity, right?

I just got a whole slew more of these and all show the same 95% capacity or better.

What is the dimensions of the modules? So they have working BMS that can be plug and play?

I don’t know about the bms but imagine it’s still good as the cells are balanced. They’re 12s4p back up power supplies. I typically just rip the cells out and throw the bms away. It’s quite a significant bms and I’ll post some pics.

If u want the bmses I can send them to u for cheap Tragic throwing them away.

I shipped them “in their device” but had ripped the electronics out of the device and sent them as photo’d further above from Cali to England.

Please tell me how it goes.


U want the bmses..

Hi never saw the message regards the BMS I have no idea how to wire them but let us see how this transaction pans out and maybe we can have a go at that later.

Cheers.
