Having seen the review data, I'd say the technology of this Aspire 18350 is comparable to that of Sony VTC4 cells or thereabouts.

I can get the cell with better price, but I can’t send to members directly, it is hard to send cells.
I can send all the cells to one,if someone can help

Excellent review as usual. I’m interested in purchasing some. Looking for the best option for someone living in the USA.

You couldn’t get cheap aluminum tubes to shop them in? Since batteries have to be in a device. You could start shipping batteries in a tube that looks like a flashlight. Maybe with s trash led and no driver. So it looks like a flashlight. I believe mtn electronics does something similisf for international orders. You should be able to ship batteries inside a product.

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

Thanks for the review once again! Just ordered qty 5 from http://online.aspirecig.com/. Shipping is confusing. Estimator said $10 for e-packet for qty 5, but placing the order, e-packet was $0... So I paid $20 via PayPal. Interesting what's gonna happen... I think their site is screwed up, so I might get free shipping or maybe they will cancel the order, or just never ship it.

Wow, got notice my order of 5 cells shipped for the $20 I paid. So for shipping, it quoted just over $10 for qty 5 with an e-packet, but placing the order, no charge for shipping. Hhmm.

I was planning on paying over $6 each.

I ordered 8 of the 18350’s, paid $20.60 for DHL, then got a partial refund of $15 as he couldn’t ship DHL (something about they wouldn’t take the batteries?) Then I got a second $15 refund by mistake and he asked me to pay that one back. Seems weird, but I did it. So now he is saying they will ship USPS? I’m confused (normal these days)

This cell really makes the short S2+ triples, for example, somewhat useful.

Also gonna try something new, we’ll see how it goes. Might be a little over the top or my meds may be skewing my perspective, only time will tell. Wink

According to HKJ's tests, looks like the Shockli 700 and AWT 800 (Yellow) were the closest in performance and capacity at 0.09 internal resistance and 750 mAh capacity. Slight advantage to the AWT.

So better performance at 0.07 and ~50% boost in capacity.

Not sure when HKJ did the AWT 800 test, because IMRBatteries only has a red 850 mAh AWT 18350 cell now, and that one goes for $5.50, and the EFEST dark purple goes for $5.00, so for $4.00 shipped, this Aspire cell is quite a bargain.

Dang, yea, a lot more applications for this cell. Might have to order more... smile

This battery, coupled with arrival of shorty lights with internal charging like the S42 and 14 II will make it a viable EDC option for me.

Yeah, I’m gonna have to get some of these as well. If this weren’t a HKJ review, I’d say it’s too good to be true!

Thanks for the tip! Ordered 5pcs via Paypal and got confirmation of shipment with no shipping charge. Website is a bit buggy going through Paypal but eventually got it with free shipping, works on either 5 or 6pcs ordered. There’s a charge for any other qty it seems.

Thanks Tom E. for the info.

Total price:

5=$20
4=$25.23
3=$19.69
2=$14.15
1=$8.62

I only have 2 × 18350 lights and just bought 2 X KP 18350,,,,,,,,this battery blows them away.

Not sure what I will do w/ 5 of them. Certainly makes more sense than buying the other quantities! Maybe shipping is free after $20! Cool

Great minds think alike!!

About 5 minutes after I posted on here I emailed Jon and told him about these batteries and said I wanted to give him One…your idea of Two maybe better! Thumbs Up

Thanks for the review!

I ordered 4 from Aspire’s Chinese site (the shipping cost went UP if ordering 5 or more).

Aspire’s UK site is about twice as expensive for the cells and the shipping cost from the UK to Sweden is about the same as from China to Sweden (it’s a strange world…).

If anyone has an extra one or two they want to part with, send me a PM. 5 for $20 is a good deal, but I only have one 18350 light atm…
