These batteries fixed the erratic behavior in my Manker T02. That light is picky about battery internal resistance and voltage drop. Even the gold Vapcell 1000mAh cells had issues in that light.

Any chance these nice batteries will pop up on Banggood soon?
Banggood is capable to send batteries to much more countries than Gearbest.

Here are my test results:

Discharge capacity tested on a Xtar Dragon VP4 Plus:
Vapcell 1000mah gold – 993, 995 mah
Orbtronic 1000mah protected – 990, 972, 967 mah
Shockli 1000mah button top – 957, 921, 947, 950 mah
Shockli 1000mah flat top – 889 mah

Lumen on direct drive (highest output) tested with Texas Ace Lumen Sphere calibrated with Maukka lights:

GT Micro XP-L HI 4000K
(flat top no contact) Sanyo UR14500P 840mAh Battery
(flat top no contact) Vapcell 1000mah gold
964 lumens -14500 KeepPower 840mAh Sanyo UR14500P Protected Button Top
951 lumens – EVVA Protected Button Top 800mah
974 lumens – Orbtronic 1000mah protected button top
1194 lumens – Windyfire 600mah button top
1195 lumens – Shockli 1000mah button top
1155 lumens – Shockli 1000mah flat top

Kronos X5
903 lumens – Sanyo UR14500P 840mAh Battery
1110 lumens – Windyfire 600mah button top
1104 lumens – Shockli 1000mah button top
1086 lumens – Shockli 1000mah flat top
842 lumens – Orbtronic 1000mah protected button top
931 lumens – Vapcell 1000mah gold

Edited to include the Vapcell in the X5 testing. Seems like the Orbtronic uses the same cell as the Vacell and that they used an extremely high quality protection circuit because the output on the X5 is about the same between the two Orbtronic and Vapcell. The Shockli 1000mah is definitely the new king of 14500. It is both a high drain and high capacity cell, which is just incredible! However, the Vapcell and Orbtronic still has its uses because in lower power regulated lights, you won’t gain any lumens by using high drain cells and the Vapcell and Orbtronic is still the highest capacity 14500 by a small margin in low amp modes that would give you a bit more run time.

The release of the Shockli 1000mah just made 14500 flashlights much more interesting!

Anybody knows what are the cells inside the Shockli and Vapcell?
Just curious why only a few brands are selling good quality 14500 and none of them is the actual producer.

Though a friend on Amazon I ordered the four cell button top pack. The cells arrived with 3.89 – 3.9 volt charge, I did sample one cell with my Opus charger. The cell when fully charged has a capacity at 925 mah, wonderful. I don’t know of any other high capacity 14500 cells on the market. Much better than “name brand” (NC and XTR) cells I bought in the past. For lots more too! I use these cells in my JetBeam E10R, Skilhunt H15, AceBeam H40, and Thorfire TG06S. they fit and operate as expected. A great purchase.

BTW when I opened the shipping box an extra flat top 1000 mah 14500 was included.! Thanks Simon

The Reylight LAN 14500 is arguably the sexiest light of all time.

Excellent design indeed, however reverse clicky is not my type of switch.
If they make it with an electronic switch and some kind of ramping UI, that would be amazing.
BTW after I wrote this comment I got the ThruNite T10 II and it’s really nice, the only thing missing is a battery level indicator.
Still waiting for the project Sofirn SP10S with Anduril, fingers crossed.

I just received some shockli 1000 mah 14500 cells & im getting 30 minutes extra run time with my zebralight H52 headlamp on H1 compared to Pkcell 14500 750mah, fenix 14500 800mah & AW 14500 750mah ,
That’s on first charge from new before any cycles , looks like very good cells.

Anyone know how many amps the Lumintop GT Micro and Lumintop Tool AA pull? Is 3 amps on these batteries enough for those two lights or do I need the Vapcell 650mah 7 amp batteries for those?

Using a Shockli 14500 660mAh at around 4.00v (ie. not yet fully-charged), I measure around 2.5 Amps on a Tool AA 2.0 with XPL-HD LED, and around 3.0 Amps on a Tool AA 2.0 with XP-L2 LED. I’m measuring around 4.0 Amps on a GT Micro.

Interesting. The 3A version does higher than 3A if you look at HKJ’s graph. It was rated way too conservatively so I’m guessing it is the same cell with a new wrap.
