  • flashlight batteries

    i have bought a fenix tk11. i have decided to use the 18650 batteries.

    i was curious about the differences between these batteries

    the only difference i see is the mAh. what is the kind of difference will this make in the flashlight. what is safe or not? are there any others you recommend?

    also, i want to get some cr123 batteries for a backup. what do you recommend for these. what is the shelf life?

    thanks for the help. i tried a search but couldnt find an answer

    I have the same flashlight and purchased the 2600mah ultrafire. The charger is great but the batteries came in BAD!!! THEY ARE CRAP. Go with AW's R18650 Batteries

        +1 They are the best. a little pricey but worth it.

            I have used RCR123A 3.0 and 3.7 v, as well as 18500 and 18650 3.7 v li-ion rechargeables, and depending on the light you are using, all have been very good to excellent choices over CR123A 3.0 v li primary cells.

            I helped buy a set of 4 RCR123A 3.0 v cells plus 2-bay charger with AC & DC cords for one of my partners to use in a small 2-cell Surefire LED light, and he apparently really likes them. I helped several partners buy LED Logic Strikers with similar kits, and all of them like them.

            I have a Wolf-Eyes M90 Rattlesnake with Lumens Factory D36 LED 3-mode with memory lamp assembly that I am running on 2 x 18650 cells and it works quite well as my 2nd back-up. I also have an old-style Pila GL3 with 9 v incandescent lamp assembly that I run on 2 x 18500 cells and it works very well as my always-on-the-duty-belt light. My primary duty light is a Mag-Lite 2 D with TerraLux 300M triple LED module running on 6 AA NiMH rechargeables in a 6 AA to 2 D adaptor.

            Enjoy the TK11 - I have partners that are using that light with the 18650 cell and they like it a lot; I have played with one of the lights and I also liked its performance.

            Smaller, lighter, brighter, rechargeable AND LED - always an EXCELLENT choice, either NiMH or Li-ion.
