OK but not as powerful as I thought – TrustFire 14500 3.7V 900mAh Rechargeable Lithium Batteries (2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
The thing is that I ordered one pair of these, as well as a pair of these: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.26124 Just to check which were better. I just feel that these are cheap rechargeable li-ion batteries, nothing more. CHEAP. These were acting as a 1.5v normal battery after being charged fully, the other batteries CLEARLY was much better.
Cons:
- Did not (on my Ultarfire C3) perform better than a rechargable 1.5 nicad battery (slightly better but not much). I would recommend anyone thinking of getting 14500 batteries for their flashlight or similar to go with the Trustfire 14500, 900mAh batteries; http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.26124 - than these ones. The Trustfire ones are the way to go. POWER! Sorry DX, but these were my first dissapointment in all items I have ordered. They act like normal 1.5v rechargeables :(.
Other:
Go with Trustfire!
Bottomline:
Good rechargeable's, but do not hope for some powers (3.7v) from these..... Unfortunately.
