    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    I can faintly read samsung under the wrappers on mine, but if I get anything else, I'll get it from them. Thanks!

    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    Of course that makes sense. I assumed each individual seller, eg. Thrunite would simply wrap their own batteries, but it would be way more efficient for the supplier to configure the batteries like you said. That's a very good point. Really, it comes down to a $10 battery vs a $20 battery, and...

    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    As far as I can tell, the Thrunite batteries I have are actually Samsung 30Q under the wrapper. I could not find any Samsung batteries that have 3100mah at 15 A. https://www.imrbatteries.com/samsung-30q-18650-3000mah-15a-battery/ Does this mean that Thrunite is lying by claiming that the...

    That is 100% the battery I have in mind and is also the exact one that's in my 18650 lights. :) But I'll have to get it from battery junction because I'm in Canada. Thanks man!

    Some authority is better than no authority! :) Hmm, exploding batteries do seem deadly. Just did some research and they don't look fun. I've bought 15+ batteries from Thrunite before though and have had no issues, but it would be good to check any new brands that I get. -Mark

    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    Ok, I'll just get an IMR to use in the charger instead of the regular one. It's by far simpler and what you said makes sense. Flashlights are my hobby, but I don't know much about batteries, so thanks for the help! -Mark

    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    Thanks for the info! Long story short, I have a Thrunite battery charger/power bank that come with a regular 18650 ( 7A ) in it. I want to be able to use the battery in my TC15 as an emergency backup. I'll try measuring the amperage on the lower levels to see how many of them I can use that are...

    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    I have a Thrunite TC15 that came with 1 protected IMR 18650. Yes, it has a high lumen turbo mode. By default, they intend it to be powered by IMR, but they don't say if a regular can or can't be used if necessary. I am wondering if I put a protected regular 18650 in it, will the battery be...

    IMR 18650 vs Regular 18650

    Hey guys, I couldn't really find clear answers on the web, so I have some questions about 18650s. 1. What are the disadvantages/problems of using a regular 18650 to power a flashlight that requires an IMR 18650? Also, will it damage the battery over time? 2. Is there a rule of thumb in knowing...
