Nuclear 18650 battery ?

Just thought I’d share this hilarious item from eBay

Evidently 6x18650 = 360Wh :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Had to laugh !

They’re doing what vendors from the Middle Kingdom have done for years, playing with the numbers.

They just multiply the capacity of a cell by the number of cells without considering the connectivity. So there are 6 cells in there and if each is 5000mAhr then 6x5000 = 30000mAhr. But that is only if you wire them as 1S6P. They’ll be wired 3S2P to give nominally 12V. In that case it will be 10000mAhr.

Probably not going to 5000mAhr either.

Rick,
I find their claims on this battery pack every bit as realistic as the claims about gain of the antennas they sell on eBay.
:wink: :rofl:

Very cynical, guys. These people have clearly simplified the problem of fusion and are releasing it to the world in small packages. Be grateful!
