Wider than other Trust Fire 14500 – TrustFire Protected 14500 3.7V 900mAh Lithium Batteries (2-Pack Blue) Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheaper; Seems to work well.
Cons:
Wider than similar Trust Fire 14500 sold under a different sku.
Other:
dealextreme sells multiple Trust Fire 14500 batteries that have the PCB. However, they cost different amounts. I could never figure out the differences between the various models.
So, I bought two different models: sku 19626 ($4.75) and sku 03435 ($5.64). They look perfectly identical to my eye. The text on the battery is letter for letter the same. BUT, the cheaper one (19626) is wider by a very small amount (maybe 1/4 mm). This is just enough that it is a tight fit for my Akoray LED flashlight and is a little bit of a pain to remove.
I'm much more happy with sku 03435.
Bottomline:
Works, but a little too wide.
