Shockli 16340 700mAh (Yellow)
- Nominal voltage: 3.7V
- Nominal capacity: 700mAh
- Maximum discharge current: 3A
- Standard charge: 0.3A-0.75A
A protected 16340, i.e. about same size as CR123 (It is longer due to the protection).
This cell looks good at low current (i.e. <2A), but the cells are rather different at 3A and also very hard loaded.
As usual small cells do not get that hot.
This cell has good capacity for its size, but it is not for high current. The protection makes this suitable for replacing CR123 batteries in some devices.
