Do you perhaps use a blow drier to heat shrink this to your battery?

A hair dryer should work just remember it shrinks lengthways as well as widthways

should be a heat gun, not sure if a blow drier is hot enough, the product is a flattened tube you cut to length and slide over, allowing an additional length to cover top and bottom radius.
Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot

The heat shrink from here shrinks with little heat and a hair drier on it's highest setting is more than enough to shrink it

I ordered this 29 mm heat shrink wrap and i can't use it.
It came 23 mm heat shrink wrap and its suitable for 14xxx batteries which
i don't have ( not yet ).
Anyway
the color is correct....

It should be 32mm flat but when you swell it, should fit 18xxx batteries. Maybe they sent you the wrong item.

By the way, applying this on your batteries is damn easy. Just cut 5mm extra on both ends, slip the battery into it and flame it. Use a heat gun but if you don't have one, use the gas burner in your kitchen. Just move the battery over the "HEAT" of the flame. Don't shove it in the flames but move gently above the flames from left to right (or the opposite). This thing requires very less heat to shrink and stick. Don't worry much about the ends, they will automatically bend inwards because of the heat.

The only skill you need here is to cut the exact length you need to cover the battery and about 4 mm on the Negative and Positive ends.
