AWT 18650 3000MAH 40A battery Review

awt 18650 3000mah 40A battery

Although the test results provide concrete data, the inferences and suggestions I draw from these tests are purely my subjective viewpoint based on my standards for establishing. It is essential to thoroughly investigate any cell you are considering purchasing before deciding.

Attempting to test cells at their maximum capabilities is extremely dangerous. It should never, under any circumstances, be undertaken by individuals who have not extensively studied the associated hazards and the methods to mitigate them.

If the AWT 18650 red 3000mAh displays only one current rating figure or solely indicates "max," I must assume that the company claims the cell can be discharged at that specific current level in any manner, including continuous discharge.


The statements, conclusions, and recommendations I make based on these tests are only my opinion. Carefully research any battery pack you are considering using before purchasing.

Testing batteries at their limits is dangerous and should never be attempted by anyone who has not thoroughly studied the dangers and how to minimize them. My safety precautions are the ones I have elected to take, and you should not assume they will protect you if you attempt to do any testing. Do the research and create your testing methods and safety precautions.

AWT Battery

This particular "40A" cell is identical to AWT's "35A" 3000mAh and AWT 18650 3500mAh, essentially a rebranded Samsung 30Q.

I am assigning a rating of 15A and 3000mAh to this AWT cell.

I purchased the two cells that underwent testing for this purpose.
