Was just thinking the cellphone shops might take them like optus/telstra/Vodafone i know most of them here have the phone and device recycling bin could give them a call and see
Good grief that is a lot of batteries
I only have got 4 18650 batteries I have only ever recharged twice in the last 5 years
I mainly use i sticks these days and so far one broke internally ( got rid of that)
Another one I dropped and the button stays depressed ( so it is in a lipo bag)
I have heaps of egos and twists I really should dispose of as I never use them anymore
I remember being so happy with the twists as you could turn the voltage up, now I think they are crap with no grunt
Also 6 years ago I thought cigalikes were the bees knees cause they worked
It’s amazing how ecigs have evolved
Holy crap Dogman!
How are you going through batteries so fast?
I still have the first 18650's I ever purchased (Sanyo 2200mah 6A continuous max), I don't use them for vaping now but do use them in portable chargers or flashlights, admittedly they are on their last legs but I doubt they have been through the 300 recharge cycles that most manufacturers recommend.
I reckon some of those 25Rs in your pile could easily & safely be used in flashlights or portable rechargers.
Yep. Going to a new home for just that purpose.
Btw. I just replace all my batteries every January
