    Default 18650 Protected keep power 3600?

    I have been using 18650 keep power 3500 for a few years now. I see they have a 3600 now. Is this new? Are the same size as my 3500? Iím just seeing these.
    If i had one day left to live i would want to be at my workplace.Because every day is like a frickin eternity.

    Iíll be jiggerd. For some reason never saw them before. I see there a little bigger then the 3500 Iím using. Iíll stick with what works. Need to grab a few.

    What cell are they using? AFAIK, there is no true 3600mAh 18650 cell, though a couple come close.

    3500s are generally good for 10A continuous, so with todayís modern blasters thereís absolutely no reason to seek out the 3600 mAh NCR18650Gs, which were just a slight improvement over the NCR18650Bs, that weíre the stalwarts from a few years back, IMO.

    I see the 3500 are backordered @ ILLUMN, good enough to just opt for the 3600 for general use?

    It always depends on your deviceís current requirement.

    For my Zebralight XYZ...sure.

    For my Emisar D4 and D4V2...no way Joseí.

    All of my stuff is old, nothing hot rod in my current collection. I do have some decent drop-ins, but they are years old. Others include some emitter swapped original HDS lights that I run 17670 & 18650 in..

    If thatís just the case, then the workhorse Pannie NCR18650B, 3400 mAh cell would be fine up to 4-5A and be inexpensive,from reputable dealers.
