Is 18650 a LiFePO4?
Lithium Werks’ 18650 cells are capable of delivering very high power due to its use of patented Nanophosphate ® battery technology. Based on lithium iron phosphate chemistry (LiFePO4), the cells are inherently safe over a wide range of temperatures and conditions.
What battery is equivalent to 18650?
21700 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery
21700 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery: These are a similar size to 18650 batteries, but are a little bit wider and longer. Just like 18650 batteries, 21700 batteries are usually 3.6//3.7 volts. They tend to have high mAh ratings, around 4000 – 5000 typically.
Are 21700 and 18650 the same?
Many wonder what the most significant difference between a 21700 battery and a 18650 battery. From a physical aspect, it is simple; the size is the difference. 21700 batteries are slightly larger than 18650 batteries. Being that the 21700 battery is slightly larger, it will also provide more energy/power and runtime.
Are CR123 and 18650 interchangeable?
There is no brightness difference between CR123’s and an 18650 rechargeable. Rechargeable 18650 batteries will typically last longer, but do the math for the batteries you are considering. Keep in mind CR123 batteries are typically cheaper than rechargeable 18650’s, but two CR123’s equals one 18650.

Can I use 20700 batteries instead of 18650?
In addition, they may have a few mm left to use up but not enough for another 18650 cell, increasing to 20700 may allow them to use up all the space available. It should come as no surprise that 20700 cells typically have higher capacities and discharge rates than 18650 cells as they are simply bigger cells.
What voltage are 18650 batteries?
The 18650 cell has voltage of 3.7v and has between 1800mAh and 3500mAh (mili-amp-hours). 18650s may have a voltage range between 2.5 volts and 4.2 volts, or a charging voltage of 4.2 volts, but the nominal voltage of a standard 18650 is 3.7 volts.
Is a 18650 battery the same as AAA?
Currently, 18650 battery has much higher energy content than AAA battery. Not only 18650 has higher mAh number, it also operate at a much higher voltage, 3.7V vs 1.5V.
Which is better lithium-ion or LiFePO4?
The lithium-iron (LiFePo4) battery has a slight edge over the Li-ion (LiCoO2) battery for safety. This is important because a battery should not get overheated or catch fire in case of overcharging. LiFePO4 is a nontoxic material, but LiCoO2 is hazardous in nature, so is not considered a safe material.
