    Multiple 18650 Power Banks - Require Same Batteries?

    Hi All,

    Moved away from my 18650 mods lately, so looking to put the batteries to good use...

    Was considering some power banks, but the big question for me is;

    In a 4x 18650 power bank, do all 4 cells need to be the same type/capacity etc?

    I mean, it's not exactly a sub-ohm build where you're pushing the limits of your battery, so it should be ok right?

    Cheers!

    It may be an issue that some of the batteries may get too depleted ( deplete more than others.)

    ^^^^^ that is good advice all batteries will need to be the same they will also have to be in similar condition and age.

    The one i was looking at getting, seems to be able to monitor the individual voltage levels of each battery...?
