Perfect unprotected 14500s – TrustFire 14500 3.7V 900mAh Rechargeable Lithium Batteries (2-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Cheap as dirt. -Fairly high energy density -Around 4.0V after full charge. Remained around 3.7V for most of its charge. Only declined to ~3.2V when near empty. -Can handle fairly high discharge rate.
Cons:
-Unprotected -Failed after more than a year and at least 40 cycles... For $2.20 per battery it was still worth it in my opinion. -Probably not actually 900mAh
Other:
I wish companies started switching to lithium-ion cells instead of standard AA 1.2V cells. These are cheaper and have higher energy density. Most products require higher voltage anyway.
Bottomline:
If you need a cheap, unprotected battery. Buy this!
