    Aldi doesn't take 18650 anymore. I have a pile to dispose of

    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
