Should be good, provided the flashlight does take button-top batteries (and I think it does). These are high-drain batteries (which is good), but you might be better served by a battery with a lower maximum drain and a higher capacity. I'm assuming that you don't need protected batteries as a flashlight costing that much should have enough protection built in (yes, I know, I know, blah blah)

A flashlight expert will be along shortly to give a better answer :)

Yeah, looks like button-tops are needed.

Thanks, I am looking for a good batteries for the Olight X7 Marauder because I have Panasonic NCR18650B and I can´t use the Turbo S mode (i need other batteries).
The Olight HDC18650 - 3500mAh are very expensive and I thought that the LG INR or Samsung INR could be a good options...

Please, I would appreciate any recommendetions

Regards,

Ah, so the Pannys don't work ... They're only rated at about 5 or 6 amps, so it does sound like you need high drain batteries.

So, these HG2s would be good, as would the Samsung 30Q. But buy the same type, button or flat top, protected or unprotected, as you have now.

Oh, hold on, are your Panasonics protected? I wonder if the protection circuit is kicking in under high drain.

C'mon flashlight guys, input needed!

(As an aside, have you had a look around, or asked, on CPF and BLF?)

Might as well throw this in now - Make sure you can actually get batteries shipped from here to your country, and at a sensible shipping cost before you get too excited. If you can buy from here, remember to use the BLF discount code when you buy!
