Good 14500 Cells – TrustFire 14500 3.7V 900mAh Rechargeable Lithium Batteries (2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
These seem to be pretty good 14500 cells. Unlike a lot of protected cells, these are not longer than the 50mm standard size for 14500 cells. They work well in my TL3 Mini-M@g hotwire, and fit with no problems, either in width, or length.
Cons:
Build quality is so so, but probably better than average in this price range. I have not actually checked their capacity, but I suspect it is somewhat less than stated on the side. I have not tried these yet in my Mini-M@g with the H-1499 bulb, they may lack enough "oomph" for that setup.
Other:
The best thing about these unprotected cells is that they are no larger in diameter, nor longer than typical 14500 cells. They fit in everything that is designed for "AA" cells. Check before you try to use them in "anything" though, as the voltage is considerably higher than an "AA" alkaline or NiMH/NiCd.
Bottomline:
These seem to be good 14500 cells at a very reasonable price.
