    Batteries how do you identify?

    Hi everyone, I sorta asked this question in another thread, Not really the thing to do, so I prefer a thread to it.

    How can you easily identify protected and non protected batteries?

    I have flat top batteries that have vent holes (or so it seems), as well as nipple tops with vent holes.

    Is there an easy way to tell just looking at them?


    As always, thanks in advance for the info.

    They should say protected on them if they are protected.

    I'm looking at an 18350 I have with what appears to be vent holes, but it's definitely unprotected and it doesn't state that on the battery.

    Like arth_d says, if it's protected, it will say so *or* it will say "with PCB".

    Id stick to AW IMRs they are not protected but use safe chemistry, or Efests are OK as well. I find these are better for mechanical mods because the have a higher discharge rate. If you have a VV device that you can adjust voltage i find other batteries are fine.

    I know nothing about batteries and that sort of stuff so I just buy from supersports600. He is the man. He is on ebay and includes his phone number so you can annoy him if you have any questions. Go to him.

    Here is a handy reference to the anatomy of a protected battery. Pretty pictures as well. Good stuff. Maybe not the right place to drop it, but I dont care!!!
