Apologies if this is in the incorrect section of the forum (mods feel free to move this if you will).
I recently bought a JETBeam PA10 flashlight (dont tell the wife lol) which im currently using with AA's (its a really cool EDC, light, prefer it to my BC10 but perhaps thats because of its output!)
To use it to its full potential of 650 lumens I need to use a 14500 battery apparently (it seems to be outputting around 300-400 lumens already from what my eyes can make out comparing it to my others).
My first stop for this kind of thing is usually Amazon, but there seems to be limited and crappy choice of batterys as nothing appears to be IC protected like 18650's im used to buying for my other lithium battery lights.
So after a lengthy introduction, my questions are:
- What are the best 14500 batterys on the market... high capacity, good quality ones?
- Being lithium batterys, is it important to buy IC protected ones as you would with 18650 to use in LED flashlights?
- Where can I buy them in the UK (dont answer this if youre not allowed to reply due to forum rules but i just want to get some!)
