PROS
Price Button top Protection circuit Genuine
CONS
Protection circuit is fragile
These are great cells and are the highest capacity 18650's you can buy. They fit in every light I currently own. The only light they did not fit in was my Trustfire X6. They were too long and would not allow me to screw down the tail cap all the way. This is a common problem with the X6 because the battery tube is too short. It is not a failing of the batteries. I will advise people to please be careful with these protection circuits. If too much pressure is applied to them, they will get dented. In my use, it has not affected the function of the battery or caused a short circuit, but it is something to be aware of.

PROS
Easy to use Separate controller for each slot
CONS
Can charge small batteries at too high of a current Can take a long time to charge 4 18650's
This is a great charger for anybody needing a lithium ion charger. It charges a wide variety of batteries and is much simpler to use than a hobby charger. There are some things that must be taken into consideration when using this charger: If you are charging 1-2 batteries at once, they are charged at 750mA each. If you are charging 3-4 batteries at once, they charge at 375mA each. This means that it can take a long time to charge up 4 high capacity batteries at once, such as a 3400 mAh Panasonic NCR18650B. At the same time, the low current means the batteries will have a longer lifetime due to less wear on the battery and will have a higher end capacity due to the lower charge current. This charger can only charge two 26650's at the same time. Due to the spacing of the slots, you cannot fit more than two 26650 batteries at once in this charger. This is probably for the best because it would take an unreasonably long time to charge 26650's at 375mA, rather than the 750mA it will charge at with 2 batteries. Because this charger will charge 1 to 2 batteries at 750mA, you should not use this to charge 1 to 2 14500 or 16340 batteries (or any small batteries). The general rule of thumb with charging lithium ion batteries is to charge them at .5C to .8C, where 1C = 1 x capacity in amps (if a battery is 3000 mAh, then 1C would be 3 amps). So if you have a 16340 that has an actual capacity of 650mAh, that means you should be charging the battery at .3A to .5A. So if you charge 1 to 2 small batteries in this charger, you will be charging them at .75A, which is unsafe and can lead to a fire or explosion. Please keep in mind that a lot of lithium ion batteries that have names that end in "fire" will have over-stated capacity claims. It is very rare that an RCR123/16340 will actually have 880mAh. Please keep this in mind when using this charger.

PROS
Protection circuit Button top Genuine
When discharge testing using my Thunder AC680 hobby charger, I got 3742mAh @ .2C (.8A) down to 2.8v. These are good batteries.

PROS
Excellent throw Well constructed Quality reverse clicky switch Programming options
CONS
Bluetooth can be a little finnicky
I really like this light. The Android application is fun to use and it is great being able to custom tailor a light to your individual needs. I find that I am not able to get Bluetooth connectivity to my Samsung Galaxy Note II, but I am able to get Bluetooth connectivity with my Google Nexus 10. In this light's defense, I am running a custom ROM on my phone, and this could be the cause of the Bluetooth issues. The light has to be very close to my Nexus 10 for it to establish connectivity. If you like tinkering, this is a great light to get!

PROS
Cheap Strong
CONS
Not strong enough to stay attached to the protection circuit of a protected lithium ion battery
I bought these to use with my hobby charger. I use alligator clamps with magnets to charge up my various flashlight batteries. It is not a failing of the battery, but a failure on my part to properly research these batteries. They just aren't strong enough to stick to a protection circuit on the negative end of a protected lithium ion. As long as you have another use for them, they are great magnets.
