    Exactly what it looks like

    posted by Gskellig on 11/16/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - Cheaper than ebay! - Multi-colored! - Multi-lengthed! - No failures yet. - Smooth/soft plastic. Feels slightly higher quality than you would expect.
    Cons:
    - Slow shipping I guess? - None really. I wish I got more red/black wires to use as positive and negative power.

    Perfect unprotected 14500s

    posted by Gskellig on 10/25/2012 Certified Owner

    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...
