Question re: Sony VTC6 cells

New to the scene here, so lots to learn. I just received an order and among them, 2 of these cells for use in some of my flashlights. They are marked

“Danger do not use outside of battery pack” Why and do I need to be concerned?

Also, just for the record the marking looks WAY more like UTC6 than VTC6. Any chance of a mistake? These were bought from a highly regarded vendor on this site and others.

Its fine. Sony doesn’t want to be sued by people doing dumb things and hurting themselves. They intend their cells to be used in packs with proper protection and charging.

V and U always look similar with that sort of printing.

Not really sure that I understand your comment? This seems to be a highly regarded and often recommended cell…so is everyone modding a button top on them?

Are your “lights” all 18650 & unprotected or did you mean to say your cells are?
