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

    Pros:

    Good price.
    Useful for direct driving 1XAA torches.
    Have a raised positive node (like the new grey Trustfire 18650) so no need for magnetic spacers.

    Cons:

    Have 10% more volume than 16340's (RCR123A) but the capacity seems to be worse.
    Tempting to try them out in 1.5v torches (damamged a switch in one of mine but repaired it with sku.5618).

    OtherThoughts:

    My Romisen RC-G2 had flickering issues so I rewired it for direct drive and hoped that would fix it. It handles the current fine, however the runtime is as bad as if it were powered by an RCR123A.

    Bottomline:

    Good performance mod.
