Do you mind if I do a spreadsheet version of this, and post?
The problem with the hb6 is the supply. [email protected] informed me that lg only makes these cells for one specific customer so supplies are dependant on surplus cells that particular customer decides to resell. The hb2's however are in supply now at liionwholesale.Hmmm, well this makes me really interested in the LG HB6. I kind of dismissed it as another "30-amp" battery with sub-par capacity (something like the VTC3, which I didn't find to be all that impressive, in spite of people's high regard for it as the mech sub-ohming holy grail,) but it seems like it sacrifices capacity for better high-drain performance to a significantly greater degree than the VTC3. Seems promising. I may have to look into that one again. I'm guessing the voltage drop under load is much lower than other high-capacity batteries with similar continuous ratings. I'll have to see if I can find some discharge curves.
It's interesting to see how some of those batteries tested. I'm surprised to see how well some of those less popular batteries hold up and how average to mediocre batteries I would have expected more from actually perform. Thanks for going through the trouble. This is a very enlightening chart.
Very interesting. It seemed like every major battery re-seller had them for a while. I guess something big must've fallen through. I wonder if they sold well enough that LG might consider putting them on the open market in the future.
This is quite old. For an up to date one go here.
