KeepPower protected 26650 new shorter version

Hey all,
People are having so much trouble finding a source for the new shorter version of the protected KP 5200 cells that I asked Neal at Banggood if he could source and create a listing specifically for the guaranteed shorter (69.5mm) cell. It’s the cell Simon recommends for the Convoy L6 but they’ve proven hard to find reliably. Neal came through with a new listing and a pre-order price of $11.50 per cell. I haven’t scoured the internet but I haven’t personally seen them that cheap before so I figured I should pass this on. Lots of new 26650 lights are coming out and this seems like a very solid cell choice particularly if you are running cells in series where protection is more important. As far as I can tell this discounted price is just for the preorder and the listing says July 25 is the end date. Just wanted to pass it on.

Here is the link:
Old link removed

Update 2016-11-15
New link from BG and a better price on the new shorter Keeppower 5200mAh protected cells:
dead link removed
Use coupon code “Keeppower” to drop the price to $10.99 per cell. Thumbs Up

Update 2017-01-09
The BG link is down at the moment. I should have a new code for an even better deal and a fixed or new link within a day or so.

Update 2017-01-11
Bad news…the old links and discount are dead.
Good news…we have a new link and a way better discount!
Here is the new link:
KP5200 Protected 26650
Here is the new code for 50% off:
KP50OFF
Note: This deal is expires on February 28

Thanks for that J-dub! I ordered the Keeppowers earlier for my L6 which are all on the way (at some point) but was nervous as I see folks measuring 71.5 as the length. I’ll wait and see for now and maybe I’ll get lucky. I see this is a “pre-order”, did Neal say when they are shipping? I might just buy 2 anyway so as to have the perfect paired battery’s for the light….Gaurenteeeeed. As they say:-)

Good work J-Dub.

For those lucky enough to live in Australia, you can also get the short protected Keeppowers here (and delivered in a few days too).

Good call stephenk
No Shilling, but Supersport600 is the go-to for Li-ion in Aust (IMHO).
Just saw these “shorties” come up on his EB site and ordered a couple.
Few more dollars, but quality and I get them fast.

You’re welcome. Smile I saw that too. They don’t have the new cells yet for pictures though. The fact that he specified the length in red bold letters and added a line that these are a good fit for the L6 makes me feel comfortable ordering though.

I’ll ask the Banggood rep about shipping to Europe. I also forgot to update the link in the OP. They renewed the deal for us a while back and sent me a new link and a code that brings the cells down to $10.99 each. I’ll make those updates and I’ll let you know when I hear back about shipping.

Here is the new link and coupon code:

Banggood won’t ship to French Polynesia either.

Not sure if it’s ok to post this here, so tell me J-Dub if you want me to edit:

I found them at fasttech.com at $10.78 if you take 3-4.
Shipping isn’t free but they do ship to eu.

No problem at all but thank you for having the courtesy to ask. Thumbs Up This is just about sharing good deals with the BLF community.
I too was disappointed to hear that BG wasn’t shipping to Europe. I understand that it’s getting harder for many retailers to ship lithium cells so we need to help out our BLF brothers and sisters where we can by passing along good deals when we learn of them. Thanks for sharing!

Banggood still ships batteries to Denmark, so I must be only some parts of Europe that are affected, you could buy from Akkuteile but the price is very different Sad

Nice. I assume that shipping is extra? Even if it is, that’s an excellent price as long as shipping is reasonable. The only US store I’ve ever purchased cells from is Richard’s (Mountain Electronics)

Yes shipping is extra, but they do have free shipping on domestic orders over $50.

What’s the length of the shorter one?

Need one about 67mm for my Olight R50 Pro Seeker.

Says 69.5mm from the banggood link in the 1st post????

I thought Olight’s 26650s would be most advisable for the R50?

I went to order these for the L6 I have on the way, but the price seems to be $14 and the code has expired.

Thanks for letting me know. I’ll contact Banggood. It shouldn’t be a problem to renew it. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back.

I got a new code from BG but when I went to test it I found that now the link to the cells is dead. Facepalm I’m gettign the dreaded “404 – Page not found” error. Give me a bit to work this out. I already sent their rep another message. They’ve been pretty good about response time so I imagine it should all be worked out within a day or so. Once I have it all confirmed I’ll post the new code and a new link if necessary. The code is for 50% off this time so it should be well worth the wait. Smile

The L6 was literally developed with these exact cells as the intended power source. It will like them. Big SmileThumbs Up
At this price you’re getting two cells for the price of one. A few people held off on buying the L6 when it came out because you had to buy $30 worth of cells to power it. Obviously, prices have improved and this deal BG hooked us up with is the best I’ve seen yet.
