    18650 battery source??

    Where might be a good source for quality, name brand 18650 round flashlight batteries. Ordered a light with the Cree Q5 which uses an 18650 battery, and while they may be ordered overseas, seems it is hit or miss on the quality. Suggestions?

    I would go to candlepowerforum.com and do a search. They have so many good reviews on that forum.

    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

    And be sure to use protected 18650 batteries. These have a small circuit board added that prevents overcharging and protects against short circuits so that you don't burn down the house.
