Good batterie but not at stated capacity – UltraFire BRC 18650 3.7V 3600mAh Lithium Batteries - Yellow (2-Battery Pack) Reviews

Pros:
Solid 18650 battery, protected and good quality. Comes in sealed plastic and besides they are standard 18650's they look quite cool in the yellow colors. Price a bit on the high side but then for 3600mAh I'm eventually willing to pay the extra $$ for extra capacity.
Cons:
The stated capacity is not close to what's on the label. Compared this to the 2200mAh ones I have and they are equal in burntime in my P7 flashlight. So read 2200 or 2300 mAh
Other:
The confusion about the stated capacity worries me, it's difficult to select a battery that is really heavvy duty and can last longer in an flashlight.
Bottomline:
Solid and well built protected quality but the stated capacity is not what is delivers.
