Battery safety is very important.  Mistreated batteries can get extremely hot and/or vent which could cause injury.  Always follow the following rules to make sure this doesn't happen.  We are not liable for mistreated batteries.


  • Never completely discharge batteries (below 2.5V under load or 3V unloaded).
  • Charge fully (to 4.2V) before first use.
  • Never use a lot of force on the battery to install
  • 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.  
  • Be mindful of the current limits in the specification and never exceed them.
  • Never keep a spare battery loose in a pocket, purse, etc.  Always use protective cases for loose batteries.  If it shorts against a piece of metal it can be very dangerous.
  • Never charge battery 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 battery then do it in a case or individual box in cool and dry place at approximately 3.6V - 3.7V.
  • Never try to charge or discharge li-ion batteries with battery chargers that are not made for Li-ion batteries.

    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!
