10440 High capacity and quality

Hi friends, where can I get 10440 batteries with the highest REAL capacity?

I dont want Chinese ones (xxxxFire) with a real capacity of about 300mAh

Thanks

The only alternative one Google came up with was this one. 

http://www.batteryspace.com/li-ion10440cylindralcellaaasize37v300mahlc-1...

 

Only two manufacturers show up in a directory

There may be others but the cells are likely to be extremely expensive or have an enormous minimum order. Or both

 

And i doubt that much over 300mAh is actually available till the technology improves.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Not to my knowledge. And they would almost certainly be lower capacity. Most lithium cobalt cells grossly overstate their capacity.

Yes I knew about those batts and the 5% discount

 

However those are the unprotected version of the TrustFire gray protected that sells DX at 5,08 in a pack of 2.


The real capacity is 287mAh under 700mA load.

You're not going to get much more than 300mah. AAA are 1/3 of a AA. So, pointless to look unless you start seeing >1000mzh AA's.

Yes I already purchased them, I am waiting they arrive at home (must arrive this week or the next)

And they are the same as the gray protected ones but without protection circuit.....600mAh declared, 300mAh in real

I ordered the same four-pack from Buyincoins just because it was cheaper with all the discounts.

Planning to use them in my new iTP A3s (which I hope will arrive soon).
