    Cheap 18650 batteries

    I recently sold my business and bought home the laptop for my boy to use/have.
    I knew the battery was shot but thought I'd have a fiddle with it before buying another one.
    Well, I totally failed to fix the battery but after I'd cracked it open I thought 'those batteries look familiar'.
    I tested them and the voltage came out fine, they were 18650 batteries. Now I don't know if they are the protected type but I can tell you that they work in my Dereelight.
    The battery is from a Toshiba Satellite M40 the same as this one and can often be bought from ebay for a fiver. The same as this one
    Crack it open and get 8x batteries for a fiver
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    If the laptop was from my boy I would buy a genuine battery, there is lots of case studies about laptop batteries catching Fire.
