Seem to be close to the 27mm diameter side though.

That is nice, 6000mAh 26650. They are listed for unprotected too. 20A continuous.
And some 18350 1200mAh 10A cont…

They have a line of flashlights. Big Smile
Got some 26650 spacers for pack builds also.
Thanks for the link! Cool stuff to look fwd to.

I’ve forgotten what the diameter limit was on the L6. 26.8mm doesn’t sound like an issue, though.

Wow, they show to have protected 18650 cells with a 15A ability.

IMO KP 6000mA = Shockli IMR26650 .

Shockli IMR26650 5500mAh (Black) 2017

Saw the 15A protected. Kinda wonder on that if its just a burst delay or full current before protection. Full 15A sorta defeats the purpose of a protection circuit. I don’t know.

Just measured the tube of my recent L6, 26.85mm at both ends. Would definitely need to be smaller than that.

The link doesn’t work.

Are you referring to that reddit post where they suspected the KP 6000 as being the same as the Shockli 5500?

Not really. The protection circuit protects against 5 things:

1. Over voltage
2. Under voltage
3. Over temperature
4. Short circuit
5. Over discharge

Most people only get protected cells for the first few reasons. The discharge limit is sometimes an aggravation that’s it too low. It prevents people who want a protected cell from being able to use a high current light. Like the Emissar D4 at 11 to 12 amps for example. With this battery they can get the 4 other safety features and still have turbo. It sounds good to me. Thumbs Up

I measured mine on both ends and got 26.99mm. It’s an earlier version, though.

I remember reading that some of the newer batches of L6 battery tubes were a bit smaller in diameter than normal. I wonder if you have one of those?

I had a clear L6 I modded and sold, and the batteries I still have fit tighter in my new Black L6. Black litto need the tube off and pushed through to get out. Not tight enough to hurt the battery at all, but the air can’t pass to allow them to fall out even with a bump. I can see just the addition of the metal strip up the side of a protected cell making them too tight. My black Keeps are just slightly looser.

Didn;t know the tubes got smaller, I initially just thought it was the difference in the black compared to clear anno thickness at first. But I did notice the difference.
Maybe that is why the L6 has had good coupon deals lately for $45? I just bought another black NW this morning.

It was around April of this year that certain batteries seemed to grow in diameter and the L6 tube got a tiny bit smaller. So people started measuring. Some were tubes were 26.79mm and some were 27.12mm. A lot of variations.

I think about here or the page before is a good starting point if you want to read about it.

Do you imply that KP protected the Shockli cell, hence the 4mm length difference? And by the way are Shockli rebranding cell from a big name or are they doing their own stuff?

Thanks for all those remarks guys. As I intend to offer it as a gift, I’ll stick on the most secure solution.

Convoy recommend the 69.5mm protected Keeppower (which as far as I’m aware is actually INR, not ICR as commonly thought).

Do you have any source stating that? Their own site is not sufficiently detailed. A “new” 6000mAh option is also listed there.


I have seen a source, but don’t have it at hand. ICRs are old tech now.

Nah, it’s just the holiday season. There’s tons of sales going on.

It should, unfortunately it seems inactivated by now. That's why I used the "FinGB" one.
