Super power batteries with much more capacity than any other in this size? This is, of course, false advertising.

SuperPower%20SP16340%203000mAh%20(Orange)-Capacity
Both cells can handle 0.2A but is strained at 0.5A. The capacity is also less than 10% of the marked capacity.

The batteries do not warm up, there is not enough energy in them for that.

Conclusion
The capacity is a bit below half of a good 16340 cell and the current handling capability is also considerable worse.
There is no super power this time around, it is just bad batteries.

At least tracking is ok. Imagine that SuperPower had a lovechild with Gpower…

Thanks for the review. Reading your reviews should be made mandatory for newbies on the subject of Li-Ion.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
