Buy a battery case and choose the best batteries for it

You can buy an empty case that holds four 18650 Li-ion batteries and then fill it with NCR/Panasonic 3400 mAh batteries. This is the battery most recommended on a flashlight site that I often visit. The last time I bought them a pair was $11.50 postpaid on eBay but the price has gone up a bit since then. There are several US vendors and again the flashlight site often mentions an eBay seller called genuinecells. When I compared the Panasonic batteries to a couple of different Chinese cells fictitiously rated as high as 5800 mAh the Panasonic cells ran about 5 times as long in a two LED 1300 lumen bike headlight.
Link to Genuinecells offering on eBay The seller is in Florida so there is no way to know if he was affected by the storm. Alternate seller in NJ but I haven't ordered from there.
