ok and that is now where I come in I am an independent tester that is giving reports on the performance or lack there of. And as to ah claims it seems to have been a fail but not to bad considering the per ah cost. Testing will continue.

The questions still remains of what grade cells did you get? What brand cells? Were they made by a legitimate 18650 cell maker or a low budget, no clean room, filthy contaminated factory? Are they buying and using the cheapest raw materials? Are they premium A grade cells or orphaned cells sold to the lowest bidder? We can only really put a per Ah price on known premium quality cells from legitimate quality manufacturers. The rest of the cells go to the bottom feeders to pawn off onto unsuspecting buyers. You simply can't buy the premium 18650 cells such as K2 Energy, A123/Lithium Werkz etc.. for what you got as a price delivered as a finished battery to the US.
