Doesn't look authentic
4 cells arrived today, one of them was actually Samsung 25R, I wonder if other cells are just rewrapped Samsung 25R too, don't look authentic to me.

FT have always sold Authentic VTC4 that are Authentic.

Every so often someone disagrees because of some 'information' they read on da intanets. Ending with them being shot down.

A few months ago me and some friends ordered a bunch of these and some lghe4's and they were all ok.

I sold all my sony cells and replaced them with he4's and hg2's I like the battery life compared to the sonys.

was the samsung in the blue wrapper or was it in a sony wrapper? how did you authenticate them?

By no means I'm a cell expert, I referred to this article https://www.sun-vapers.com/how-to-spot-a-fake-sony-vtc5-battery/

It is in it's own green wrapper, which says it is inr18650—25r

May I ask why the vtc4?

The LG HD2C's are performing better at 30A ranges.

Yeah they look messed up with the notch on one and wrong battery. You got the orange sticker and packaging that we could see?

Dunno, I always wanted authentic vtc4 since they are known for their truest 30A current discharge, havent heard of these hd2c

"truest 30A currant" is a bit of a stretch. 20A cell more like it.
