Pretty much the best price around for a pair of genuine Panasonic 18650s - direct from Amazon, so they'll be genuine.

They're £15.95 each - so two for just a little more's a good deal.

There are an awful lot of fakes around!

​Look to the right of the Amazon page. You'll see that Amazon sell this direct at the price stated.

​Not posted for heat. Just for the few who recognise a bargain. These aren't mainstream HUKD but some will appreciate the deal.

​They store a lot of energy for the size of them. Mainly used in torches as the voltage drops as they discharge.

And the main problem with them is that there are so many dangerous ones about. Genuine Panasonics are amongst the safest to use (these are the protected, safest, ones) - and Amazon is one of the very few places that you can be absolutely sure of not getting palmed off with potentially dangerous fakes.

Buy from eBay, Amazon Marketplace or other outlets at your peril. You may save a few quid, but fires and explosions are a pretty large price to pay if you end up with a dangerous one.

It is. But are they genuine Panasonics at that price? If something looks too good to be true..........
I've used a few different ones from China & never had a problem. Just ordered 4 today with a much higher stated capacity for £3.11 (I realise there unbranded but at that price it suits my needs)
Nice to see a decent battery discussion on here for a change.

Just because it states that it has higher capacity means nothing and if you buying non-branded the chances that it is truly higher is slim to none.
Cheap 18650's can be very very dangerous especially if its application is high drain so do keep that in mind when you think you have saved yourself a buck or two.

there is also more to the battery than just a high Mah, also do not forget to invest in a decent quality charger and refrain from using that cheap one that you likely got with your torch.

The last thing you want is for one of these to short and vent in your house when you are not home, or in your backpack or pocket. Be safe & be cheap safely.

**edit:
As a rule of thumb if the brand has the word Fire in it's name, AVOID IT!! another company renowned for re-wrapping batteries or giving very incorrect information regarding it's ratings is EFEST.

Well put - and here's a well-reviewed suitable charger at a reasonable price. Copes with Li-ion and NiMh.
