    21700 or 18650 - just starting out

    Unless you have a specific need for a light to be really small and lightweight, I'd start with 21700 lights (or even higher if you like the idea.) I actually think the ergonomics are even better with 26650/26800, as those lights are often around the same thickness as the old D-cell maglites...

    What charger do you use for 18650, 21700, plus other batteries?

    I've been happy enough with my Fenix ARE-A4 that I recently bought a second one. I use them for 14500, 18650, and 21700.
