off the shelf springs

looking to replace the crap springs in cheap 2-3 18650 headlamps. Seen lots of the discussion of springs on here. and it looks like I am at least a year late for the group buy. are the springs on aliexpress any good? or are they pretty much what you would expect at the price? any suggestions for decent quality springs?

I point to others in this group to justify how many flashlights I have.

Kaidomain has a small collection of nice looking springs too, like these “bronze” springs that are the right size for a standard tail spring. http://kaidomain.com/springs/S028134-9mm-x-12mm-Gold-Plated-Bronze-Sprin...

++Thanks all++, Great stuff, thanks for the links.

As far as china shipping stuff, I would imagine if there is money to be made it will happen. But I’m sure some factories are affected.
