    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Good general purpose Protected ICR.
    Cheap enough.
    Actual capacity nowhere near 3000mAh,, variable from cell to cell, but still good bang for buck in low or medum drain use.

    Cons:

    High Drain application? Look for a Jap cell

    OtherThoughts:

    It's tops in the budget battery stakes, although I see TF prices creeping up. It is worth comparing Sanyos, Sonys Samsungs and Panasonics.

    I did find that after tripping the PCB on discharge, I have needed to needed to kickstart more than one cell manually before any of my chargers would accept it.

    Of course a quality charger is always recommended, as is keeping an eye on the charging process from start to finish.

    Bottomline:

    Its as safe a fire battery as you'll find that'll work in most flashlights, series, or singular.
