Battery Warning

Warning: Lithium ion batteries may explode or burn due to improper use. Using these batteries for purposes not intended by the manufacturer, including outside a battery pack and/or without a BMS, may cause severe injury and damage. We are not responsible for any injuries caused by lithium ion batteries - use at your own risk.

All rechargeable batteries have inherent risks under any circumstance. Use caution with working with li-ion batteries (lithium-ion), LiPo (lithium ion polymer), and any rechargeable cells (together "rechargeable batteries"), as they have dangerous charging characteristics and are known to explode or burn if mishandled. A purchaser and user of rechargeable batteries should educate themselves on rechargeable batteries, especially as to charging, discharging, assembly, and storage. Learn more about proper storage and care for rechargeable batteries here. We are not responsible for any damage caused by the misuse or mishandling of rechargeable batteries.

Here are a few tips:

  • Never completely discharge batteries (below 2.5V under load or 3V unloaded)
  • Charge fully (to 4.2V) before first use
  • Never charge batteries to 4.3V or above
  • Do not charge unattended
  • Do not store your li-ion batteries fully charged for an extended period of time (weeks or more)
  • If you must store your battery, only store in a case or individual box in a cool and dry place at approximately 3.6-3.7V
  • Use only high quality battery chargers
  • Do not expose to heat
  • Do not connect the positive contact to the negative contact without an appropriate load
  • Never exceed the battery's specifications
  • Never try to charge or discharge li-ion batteries with battery chargers that are not made for li-ion batteries
  • Always charge these batteries on and within fireproof material
  • Never leave rechargeable batteries in a recharging station unattended
  • Do not use any rechargeable battery or charger if any visible damage is present, or if known mishandling, accidental or otherwise, has occurred
  • Always store and transport rechargeable cells in a safe, non-conductive container (never keep a spare battery loose in a pocket, purse, etc. and always use protective cases)
  • Properly dispose of all battery cells and chargers in accordance with local laws and mandates (if you're unsure, contact your local municipality)
  • If a rechargeable battery overheats, hisses, or bulges, immediately quarantine the battery from any combustible materials - ideally, take the battery outside
  • If a rechargeable battery catches fire, the FAA recommends pouring water or soda on the battery and surrounding areas - ideally, use a foam extinguisher to quell the fire

My Thrunite TN42 battery choice

When I need need portable power, I head to Llion Wholesale. Buying from China comes with risks.

  • What device/application do you use this with? Flashlight


Battery puts out stated voltage but didn't seem to recharge in my charger like another brand 'UltraFire'.

Liion Wholesale Batteries

Hi Dan - this battery should recharge in a standard lithium ion battery charger. Is it making full contact? Feel free to reach out to us with questions - our Contact Form is linked at the bottom of the website on the left hand side - we're happy to help get to the bottom of this with you.

Just what I was looking for

I needed some button top 18650's that were capable of a 10A discharge. These do that just fine. Also they are rated at 3500mAh. This is high for a high drain cell. Normally you sacrifice capacity when you need high drain but not with these.

Best in class

Definitely the best 18650 I've used. I have four sets of two from four different decent brands, all rated within 100mah of each other, and these last the longest by far. No surprise, as these bench tested at the top of the list by a couple experts who have the equipment and provided the service for the battery consumer community. Liion deserves credit as well, for being honest about their products unlike many of the misleading vendors and rebranders out there.


Real deal, powerful, works great for my Nitecore Flashlights

I had been shopping around on Amazon for a good deal on quality 18650 batteries. Since I am a novice user of these types of batteries, I ran into some rookie mistakes that Amazon's horde of unscrupulous sellers did not bother to clarify on their advertisements. For example, one brand (Ecogear FX) sold 3000mAh protected batteries for about $37 per 4. Their reviews said the real capacity was around 2500mAh, but I didn't care because I was looking for a good enough deal. However, after using them in my Nitecores (HC30 & EC4S), none could power them on high-drain Turbo mode - it seems that their PCBs (essentially like fuses) got triggered on low amperages of only 2A. Back they went to the seller. I then looked at "Brand name" 18650s like Orbtronic, Nitecore's own batteries, and Eastshine. All were pricey, and some exorbitantly so considering the fact that they were most likely just rewrapped Panasonic/Sanyos. Four Orbtronics go for almost $60! Finally fed up with Amazon, I googled "18650s" and stumbled on Liion Wholesale. The site looks rather simple, but from reading their product descriptions they seemed legit, so I bit the bullet and bought 8 of their newest Panasonics. I got them fast (3 days from PA), weighed them (all average 48.5g vs 42-44 for Ecogears), and tested them using an Opus BT-C3100 V2.2 charger. The result of a discharge/charge was 3420mAh...close enough to 3500. I will definitely buy from them again!
