LG ICR18650-HE2

Used LG ICR18650-HE2 battery cells, processed, tested, and approved for further use.


Used LG ICR18650-HE2 battery cells, processed, tested, and approved for further use. With a white wrap and black insulator.

Two variants (grades) are available:

  • G1 (Grade 1)
    - SOH (State Of Health) is in the range 95-100% | avg.: 97.23% (new cell = 100%)
    - iR (internal Resistance) is in the range 19-29mΩ | avg.: 22.8mΩ (new cell = 20.0mΩ)
  • G2 (Grade 2)
    - SOH is in the range 90-95% | avg.: 93.64%
    - iR is in the range 20-32mΩ | avg.: 23.7mΩ

The reason individual grades' parameters overlap is due to the fact that the cells might have a good SOH (e.g. 97%) but worse iR (e.g. 35mΩ) and vice versa. Therefore a separate grade for lower price.

  • Tested for self-discharge
  • Capacity tested at 1C current (2.5A)
  • The production year ranges mostly from 2017 to 2020.
  • These cells were extracted from Aku and power tool batteries that were discarded due to electronics malfunction or cell imbalance.
  • DC internal resistance measured according IEC 61960-3:2017, paragraph 7.7.3 (0.2C - 1.0C) (Note that DC IR is very different from the more commonly used AC IR)
  • All measurements were carried out using high-accuracy calibrated equipment, designed by Revival Battery.
  • Cells are fitted with new shrink wrap and insulator (Note: new wrap has no markings on it)
  • Residuals from spotwelds were carefully removed leaving a smooth surface for spot-welding (see gallery)
  • We provide a spreadsheet with parameters of each cell in your order. The parameters include cell ID, capacity [mAh], energy [Wh], DC iR [mΩ]
  • All cells are shipped at 3.5V (+-0.03V)
