Well they would be running Lazerer 445nm 800mW, and a 405nm 400mW

For example. I have a battery that will run a 1.2W 445 for a little over 2 hours. Yet that exact same battery will run a 260mW 660 build for well over 5 hours. It all depends on your load.

You really need some kind of reference to get any meaningful information.



Hmm. Then assuming your laser is drawing around 1.3A after driver losses, that puts the capacity of them somewhere around 2000mAh.
You're right about that. Thats why I mentioned what kind of laser I use them on.

EDIT: I also meant to mention that I use that laser in 1 min on 1 min off duty cycles and I rarely ever keep it on for a full minute so on a full charge depending on how much I use it I get a few days use out of it and I use that laser a lot soooooooo yea.

I now only use name brand 18650 cells like Panasonic, Samsung or LG cells.

Typical capacities for reasonably-priced cells are 2600-2900 mah.

Internal resistance is a measurement of how much voltage drops when you have a significant load on the cell:

Thx for the tip, and especially the link to that other thread. I just checked it out, and it's really good, useful stuff. After reading it, the whole idea seems so simple and common-sense, but I'd NEVER have figured it out on my own. Really good info, considering that most of my materials (including batteries) are salvaged from other things.
