I received an LED bike light as a Christmas gift. It came with 4 Ultrafire BRC18650 cells (3000mAh)
Everything about the package seems cheap. The battery holder is very flimsy with desperately poor soldering, and I'm seriously suspicious that the cells are not genuine.
Two things about them:
1. The red band at the bottom of the battery is much thinner than any I have seen on any Ultrafire BCR18650 on eBay
2. The bottom plate of the battery is plain and silvery in colour, whereas everyone I see on eBay has a gold coloured base with Ultrafire written on it. (the picture in the advert showed YEZL batteries, but these were not supplied.)
Appreciate your thoughts.
Do you think they are fakes? The lettering includes the typical Ultrafire typo - 'sheef-life'
Appreciate any comments
