Police brand lights.

A couple of years ago my first 18650 light was one of these.
.

.
I noticed that it had a different LED fitted to what was advertised and was given a refund.
A few weeks later another one arrived so I got 2 lights plus the refund.
.
I knew nothing about Li-ion batteries other than they were a lot more powerful than the ordinary AA cells. I like to know about stuff that I’m using so I read a few websites and learnt by other peoples mistakes. In a very short time I realised that what #i had were a pair of potential pipe bombs, I stopped using them immediately and chucked the charger that plugged into the light to charge the battery as well as the car charger, the batteries unfortunately I recycled, I should have kept them and dismantled them to see what horrors there were inside.

These are still available on Amazon, Clicky clicky.
.

.
If you use the pull down menu on this page there is another (the XML-T6) being sold with the same battery.

How low do you have to go to fake UltraFire wrappers and what the hell was inside them?
