PROS
Plenty of good, durable stuff.
CONS
Leaves a crease on each side where the wrap was previously flattened. Colour is more pastel pink than purple. Not as thick and durable as clear.
Cut yourself around 70mm +/- 1mm for an unprotected cell. Wrap it over a gas stove or hairdryer, something with lots of convective heat transfer for best results. Make sure you cut it straight across, else it looks uglier than a fresh, road-train pressed cat on a highway. Perfect for saving yourself from potential shorts from damaged wrappers. Multiple colors are fun and help organise batteries.

PROS
It works.
CONS
Can tell it's really, really cheaply made.
Lots of gaps between pieces. Plug doesn't fit snugly. It's even got scratches on the body, heavy ones at that. Don't try to use the country head of this with another adapter and vice-versa. The fit is going to be difficult and poor at best. At least it works.

PROS
Thick, milled aluminium case. Looks really good. Feels really good. Works beautifully. Light is pretty bright. Light is infinitely variable.
CONS
Heavier than normal. Charging is 1A max Light doesn't work while plugged in. No instructions. Had one heavy scratch upon arrival. Button clicks a little cheaply. (Fixable) One of the optics was slightly chipped on the side (does not effect beam pattern)
This came wrapped heavily in al-foil due to recent lithium battery shipping regulations. The build quality is amazing, but is about 30% heavier than it's plastic counterparts. Charge indicators look really good. Discharging works really well. The light is sufficiently bright to light a good 10m in front of you at night, and it infinitely variable with a hold of the button.

PROS
Solid. Thicker than stock. Durable. Can label cells. Perfect fit.
CONS
Not the thinnest, may cause some interference issues with flashlights that usual have a really snug fit, especially. Giving too much extra at the front end will result in a lip (doesn't shrink completely and curves forward a little.)
I rewrap all my laptop pulls to make them cleaner and so I can distinguish them from the rest. First few times I melted a hole between the crimp ridge and the main body of the battery, but that might be because I help it too long over a flame that was too hot. Make sure you have your burner on lowest if yo do this over a stove. Give yourself at least 3-4mm extra at the positive end and 2mm extra on the negative end to really make sure you don't short out anything. With a stock wrapper, my cells originally measure 18.28mm in diameter. (UR18650ZTA) With this wrapper, they measure 18.46mm in diameter.

Copper. Not brass. Self-adhesive. Does the job.
CONS
Machine work is pretty rough.
For best results, the adhesive may not be the best option. Something like Fujik or similar thermal glue would increase thermal conduction away.
