    Decent 18650 battery sources?

    Where is a good source of decent quality 18650 batteries at a reasonable price these days? I could do with a few more that don't suck.

    Plenty of options on aliexpress but they can be a bit of a lottery for quality and hefty shipping charges from some sellers.

    Maxtoch or Panasonic ones are the go to units apparently. @burtonator may still have a few Maxtoch ones for sale.

    Yeah I have a couple of Panasonics which are good, did have 4 but lost a headlamp with 2 of them in it... duh. More annoyed about the batts than the headlamp.

    Saw the Maxtoch ones on their Aliexpress store but was hoping to find Panasonic or equivalent a bit cheaper than Maxtoch, I expect they're about the best but $36/pair is getting up there in comparison. Depends how much better they are though I guess.

    Yes, the batteries are getting hard to obtain here at a reasonable price. I keep looking for alternatives.

    Jaffa land

    Button top which will work with most flashlights and also protected.

    Seems like a very reasonable price to me...
    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?
