Great, cheap li-ions – TrustFire 14500 3.7V 900mAh Rechargeable Lithium Batteries (2-Pack) Reviews

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

Pros:
-Super cheap -Fits in a lot of consumer products(though not always compatible) -Higher max current and voltage than alkaline batteries -Higher max current than protected li-ion
Cons:
-No discharge protection -Require specific li-ion charger
Other:
I used these in my nerf stampede and an electric stock car, and they worked excellently for both purposes. Just make sure that you don't let them discharge too much, because if you do they won't charge up again!
Bottomline:
These are great if you need high current or high voltage batteries in either a DIY project or simple consumer electronics. But, you might want to consider protected batteries if you don't need current quite this high.
