18650 Batteries

Postby Sickman on Mon 6/May/13 5:34pm

Looking at getting some more 18650 batteries (cells) for my Spikelight so I have a pile of them when I do 10 day adventures.
Any recommendations on best capacity and price out there at the moment?
I have a pair of Xtar 3100mAh at the moment which last about 6 hours or so with my Spikelight giving out Ay-Up level output.
Have some cheaper UltraFire 3000 mAh (from dx.com) which according to the battery guru's are not as good but seem to run just as good as the 4 times more expensive Xtar to me.

Any recommendations?

They seems pretty economical rates, as they match the prices of the local Perth hobbyist that I currently get the brand name batteries and chargers from.

I guess the cheaper Chinese brands were originals rather than old batteries with counterfeit brand wrappers brought of Ebay
