Nothing wrong with being cautious, but those are run/batch numbers not serial numbers. I have 8 Molicel P26As I bought from Liion with the same run number. I trust Liion with my life as they are the only battery vendor I use.Hmm. Joe has posted a deal for HG2's recently here on VU.
It's from here: https://www.centralvapors.com/lg-hg2-18650/
Am I nuts or is it funny that they all have the same numbers on them?
I know I have an old pair that do have the same numbers, but three in the same photo?
Not accusing Joe or CV of anything wrong, and I'm probably just being paranoid now, but just being overly cautious here.
Molicel has 1 authorized wholesale distributor in the USA & that distributor sells to 1 US-based online vendor: LiionWholesale. For now, at least, that's probably the safest place to get Molicels (no disrespect to 18650BatteryStore or any of the other good online vendors, tho').I have 8 Molicel P26As I bought from Liion with the same run number. I trust Liion with my life as they are the only battery vendor I use.
Never ordered from them though.
I'd add in https://www.18650batterystore.com/ as a good source, IMHO.
Always had good things and excellent service from them.
I have a bunch of older 30Qs, just checked a few and the can codes seem legit. Been using them for a long time now and they hold up well.
Caveat Emptor eh?
