All batches have had their physical characteristics compared and verified that they were genuine with our previous samples. So far, we have had minimal complaints regarding our VTC5s and they have had a 99.9% reliability rate so far (from feedback from customers). As always, please treat your lithium cells with caution nonetheless. All our Sony VTC5s are guaranteed authentic & they come with a 3 months 1-1 warranty against defects/venting. Do take note that performance/memory-effects that will take place over time are not covered. 



  • 2600mAh Capacity
  • 30A Max discharge current (continuous) / 60A Pulse discharge current 
  • Size: 18x65mm
  • Internal Resistance 12mOhm (1kHz AC)



These are the latest high drain cells from Sony, which feature a VERY IMPRESSIVE 2600mAh capacity with a 30A max discharge current (continuous)!  Simply put, these are the best and largest capacity high drain cells on the market!  These cells are ideal for flashlights, power tools, and other high drain applications.  These cells are flat tops.  These high drain cells have lower internal resistance, which translates to higher voltage under load, which means more power to your device!


A Small Note

Do take note that there are some articles that mention VTC5s have been out of production awhile - as well as articles/emails about claims from Sony that they no longer produce them. We cannot verify these articles/claims. In the worst case scenario the VTC5 cells that our store & many other reputable stores are selling are a sort of a super-clone or old stock from before. From performance/reliability feedback so far the cells have been performing quite well. Also, from what we can see and observe by stripping the cells look real and exhibit no observable fake call-outs from a real VTC5. As always, we are monitoring feedback from our customers and updating this page constantly.
