Quality battery at a reasonable price
May 3, 2022
The Fenix battery (3500mAh) that originally came with my flashlight had a long run...probably five years. But it was looking beat up and, while it still held a charge well, didn't seem to be operating at peak performance. In looking for a replacement, I sought a cell from a recognizable brand for a modest price. I've paid as much as $20 for a single 18650 battery, but I don't use my flashlights as much as I used to, and I needed two batteries. So, I didn't want to shell out close to $50 for them. Thoughts on Olight ORB-186P26: While the 2600 mAh capacity is a good bit lower than my previous cell, it's just fine for my current usage, and I've had no issues with duration. The max brightness of my light returned to normal, validating my perception that my old cell was indeed showing its age. Not much else to say about a product with such a simple concept. It works well so far, and I trust its quality.

Cheap and Reliable
October 7, 2021
I'm a big fan of CREE flashlights with 18650 batteries. Even when using 3x AAA batteries is an option I always go for the 18650. I probably have over a dozen lights by now, with batteries from various brands. I came to Battery Junction about 2 years ago when Amazon stopped carrying any decent Lithium rechargeables (they have nothing but no-name Chinesium these days), and tried out these plus some other models here. These Olight batteries are remarkably cheap for name-brand Lithium, but they hold a charge well, I can leave a light in the truck for a few months and it never fails to power on when needed. I prefer batteries with a bit more capacity, but considering a 3200mAh battery costs twice as much, these are excellent for the lights I don't use as often. I will probably buy more, whenever some of my current batteries wear out.

Had ordered these based on the battery numbers not realizing I actually needed a flat top version of the same battery. Called and explained my error, they were very helpful with the return and shipping the flat top replacements. Thanks

I use a Streamlight Stinger 2020 as a police officer and have a smaller flashlight l use that takes the same 18650 battery. I wanted ready to go recharged batteries with me all the time. These batteries work great in the place of costly Streamlight batteries, fitting in the twin battery cradle of the Stinger. These prices allow me to keep several handy at home also.

I use these in a tactical flashlight, and carry along two spares in the light case. The shelf life is very good and even if the light sits for several weeks, it is always ready to go.

Great 18650 for your tactical flashlights, weapon lights or EDC lights. Long life quick recharge and flawless performance even when used on high recoil firearms. Only thing better is the 3400 mAh version.

A good battery. Not a great battery but a good one. If you have a super draw device, this may not work, but for the price it works great in my 1,000 lumen headlamp. Since it's an Olight, I know it is quality as well.

Holds Voltage Well
September 6, 2018
I bought this at the same time as the Nitecore P12 (https://www.batteryjunction.com/nitecore-p12-smo-xml2.html). I use this flashlight in my truck console - simply there for an emergency. So I never really use it. But what I found is that it holds its voltage much longer than I expected. Maybe that's normal for this kind of battery technology. I'm no expert. But I know I will get Olight next time I want a rechargable flashlight battery. I'm completely sold on the quality/design/functionality.

Good Battery - Great Price
February 3, 2016
I bought two (2) of these Olight 18650 batteries along with my purchase of the Sunwayman-C23C light. I usually buy the Orbtronic 18650 rated at 3100 mAh. I thought that I would give these a try even though most all batteries come from only a select few manufacturers. Rated at 2600 mAh these Olight batteries have performed quite well and provided the power, duration and light quality needed for the light.
ProsGood price; Better than average power; Better than average mAh rating for energy charge and power duration
ConsSlightly low on the mAh rating BUT adequate

". . . And two more & two more & two . . . "
January 26, 2016
Folks, I ordered two of these after getting 2 of the Olight M-22 Warrior flashlights. These batteries seemed to have made a big difference in the brightness, & the run times appeared to be a little longer (15-20min) than with the standard #123's. But then I realized I should have two more as spares . . . & then I realized if I carried one of the M-22s in the Jeep, I should have two extra with the light "just in case" . . . So I ordered two more then realized I had 4 other Olights that used #123's, sooooo . . . . . . well, you get the picture (as of this writing, there are 4 more on their way to the Cincinnati area). . . . :-) Be safe.
ProsGreat price / Holds a charge for a good while / Brightness of the light seems "brighter" / Fast charging times
ConsNone with either batteries or their usage so far

18650 battery
January 26, 2016
It pays to buy a good rechargeable battery. You spend good money on a good flashlight, why would you put cheap junk batteries in it. you can buy the cheaper batteries but you get what you pay for. I have some of the cheaper so called fake 18650 batteries and while they do work, they don't work for as long or give as bright a beam on my flashlight as these Olight batteries do and of course the cheaper batteries are marked with far more capacity than these Olights, but shrink wrap labels are cheap and you can put them on any battery and say whatever capacity you wish. I won't use the word lie. let's just say they are an untruth. I now trust my Olight batteries exclusively. you will pay a little more but you will be happier
Prosgreat battery, long run time, seems to be a quality product. just hold one of these batteries in your hand and hold one of the cheap so called fakes and you can definitely feel the difference in the weight of the batteries. I know it sounds corny, but you can feel the difference

Not knowing that much about the 18650 style rechargeable battery I feel like I picked a good battery for the money. They seem to last long enough in my little 580 lmn. flashlight. One day I'll see if paying $7.00 more for 1000 ah is worth the money, but for now I'm happy with what I got.

Got a new flashlight that uses 3 AAA batteries, but the ad said it could also use a 18650, so I ordered it. It did not come charged up, which is great, but I decided not to use my solar charger to charge it long before I might need it!
ProsCan be recharged hundreds of times!

Olight 18650 change
June 2, 2015
Until recently I've been using CR123's with most of my lights. I decided to get some Olight 18650 rechargeable batteries, instead of throwing away batteries. From word of mouth and reviews I went with Olight. The price is fair compared to the competition and has all the same protection circuits as more expensive 18650's. They hold there charge well and give you all the juice it can, until a low level protection circuit kicks in. Hopefully these will last a long time, and from Olights reputation and other users comments, I'm fairly confident they will. Don't buy a expensive flashlight and go cheap on the batteries.
ProsAt least from Battery Junction you can choose to get these in a plastic container/box for storage. Big plus!

Best 18650
April 15, 2015
I went through several 18650 batteries and they are NOT all the same. Another brand I just had to send back (ordered through Amazon). Some of the other batteries we're not even long enough. I put the Olight batteries into my 1000 lumen light just to see how long they would last. They did better than any of the other batteries I tested.
ProsThey easily met the advertized claim.

February 5, 2015
These have been holding up really well in my flashlights, with a longer run time than others I have been using. Lucked out over the Christmas holiday's when I saw these on sale. If it wasn't for the sale, I may not have found them. Now that I have had such good performance, I'm going to purchase more of them, even if their not as low priced after the holiday sale.
ProsComes with a storage box for two.
