I’m a huge fan of Richard (MtnElectronics) and Kevin’s team (IlluminationSupply)

Here are the EFest 35A 2500mAh batteries from MtnElectronics and from IlluminationSupply.

Both sites have button and flat-tops available. Unfortunately, the reliable genuine VTC5 supplies have dried up for now. However, I’ve heard through the rumor mill that many battery companies are considering loosening their policies on selling single unprotected cells to vendors—but I’ll be taking that with a substantial grain of salt for now.

My recommendation for anyone looking for the highest possible cap IMR 18650’s is Samsung 25R’s. There are the panny BD’s and PF’s but they just don’t perform at the same level as 25R’s and VTC5’s do (tho they have slightly higher Ah’s).

Ive bought most of mine from a guy here but I don’t think he has them anymore, RMM (also a member here, owner of MtnElectronics) has a pretty consistent supply tho.

If you’re looking for cheap I have Samsung 15M’s (the 1.5Ah version of samsung’s highest performing IMR’s like the 25R). Sure they’re low cap but they’re just as capable current wise (all tested on my draw tester) and only $2/ea so for the price you actually get more Ah!
