Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you had used the JetBeam 18650 (3.7v 2300mAH) IC Protected batteries before?
Was your experience positive? They are cheap but I'm wondering if I shouldn't get an AW instead of 2 JetBeam!

Thanks in advance,

L

Hello 2300 mAH is pretty low on the capacity side with 3100 mAH in the market now. I dont know how much the JBs are but the AW3100 mAH are $19.50-19.75 plus shipping from some of the vendors on CPF.

this doesn't totally answer your question but will help: how much are you paying for them?

i'd go with AW or Redilast or Callie's Kustoms honestly. plus yeah 2300 is a bit low these days

I have the Jetbeam in one of my lights. I've never really tested how long it lasts.It looks well made and functions well. @ $10 each you end up with 4600 mah of runtime for $20 dollars.

Thanks all, the price is 9 euros. I could get a AW 18650 3100 mha for 22 euros.
Redilast don't seem to be on sale from European sellers but I haven't checked everywhere.
Otherwise Eagletac are also available and they are cheaper than the AW but the difference is not that big so I think in that case I'd go for AW!
