    Best battery 18650 for a ledlenser mh10

    Good evening chaps.

    Who’s smart enough to enlighten me on a good back up battery for my new MH10 ledlenser???

    I have no idea what’s good and what’s bad, or am I better off getting factory ledlenser battery’s?

    Ideally I need two of them and just need to know what junk to stay away from

    Thanks in advance

    most 18650's you see for sale on trademe etc stating capacity over 3400mAh are generally rubbish. Chinese over rating of capacity is pretty rife.
    You cannot go wrong with the Maxtoch Batteries, Genuine Panasonic, Fenix, Nitecore. There are probably a couple of other good brands, but I cannot think of them off the top of my head

    Yes - your right about Batts on TM
    I got eneloop Pro (AA) rechargeable - and not good. Weren't cheap either :-)
    Also had a few of these 18650's and not good

    So anyone has a good link to "quality/genuine" gear ??

    Nitecore good. I'm not saying they're the best, but I am happy with the performance.

    What do you need?

    I have Nitecore 18650's 3500mAh std and 8A high drain as well as 3400mAh USB rechargeable's - I can get 2300 through to 3200 mAh but dont stock them any longer as they move slowly.
    I also have the various hunting torches from the P30 through to the newest MH40GTS and all the accessories although the pressure switches are currently out of stock.

    Been thinking of breaking up some kits to ensure supply of the pressure switches..

    Hi Dale

    You can have a look on my site.
    There are a few in stock that aren't yet loaded on the site so if theres something you want from Nitecore and its not on my site, please drop me a PM.
    All the batteries from Nitecore have protected circuits including ATR compatibility and come with a 12 month warranty.
