Just what I've always wanted – 11.1V 3 x 18650 Battery Holder Case Box with Leads Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Most important pro is they DO fit protected cells. I have tried these with sku:20392 no problem.
There are holes to mount this holder with screws.
Comes with wires already attached.
Its cheap and does its job well
Cons:
Attached wires could be a little thicker.
Outer two batteries can be difficult to remove.
Other:
As I said they do fit protected cells and as far as I'm concerned I wouldn't use anything else.
Should be a simple job to add a balance charge connector if you didn't want to use un-protected cells.
I bought some holders from a large US component suppler which where a lot more expensive, weren't internally wired (just pcb pins for each cell) and a tight fit for the protected cells. Glad DX has now started selling these, they have been long overdue.
Bottomline:
If you need to make a 3S 18650 battery pack then look no further.
