Good 14500 Cells If, They Are Not Too Long – TrustFire Protected 14500 3.7V 900mAh Lithium Batteries (2-Pack Blue) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
These cells seem to work pretty well. Capacity seems a bit optimistic, but they are not too bad.
Cons:
The biggest problem with these cells, is that they are 51.9mm long. The addition of the protection circuit adds a bit too much length for some, but not all applications. They do not fit in most of DX's plastic cases, because of the additional length, due to the protection circuit being added onto the end.
Other:
If they fit in your application, they will work fine. As I said, the capacity printed on the side is a bit optimistic, but they are not too bad.
Bottomline:
Reasonable price, just make sure you can fit 51.9mm cells into your application.
