Is there a thread dedicated to it?
On a whim I bought some 2000 mah cells and am curious how honestly they are rated.
thanks

Go to sticky's in battery, electronics, etc forum and click on LiIon battery shootout. Not a definitive 18650 thread, but SilverFox tests out some 18650's, as well as other LiIons.

I know I saw one of these a couple months ago, but I can't seem to find it anymore.

I believe blue trustfires are some of the highest capacity, maybe the protection circuit isn't the best (based on the trustfire name). Panasonic makes a real 2900mAh unprotected 18650. I'm praying AW can get his hands on a batch of them!
