I think that the 5800mAh UltroFirc 18650 battery belongs into the category “other names of shame” (several similar names are already listed). This cell was also enthusiastically discussed on reddit two years ago.

Ultro Firc have even managed to increase the capacity of their battery to 6800mAh since then.

Another listing that I checked has been replaced with one for Ever Fire 18650s (9900mAh).

Coming from someone in CA, this sounds like the voice of experience given the events of the past few years

Well, a like the UltroFirc above, someone would probably clone it and make something like “Yourhoseonfire” or “Yourhoesonfire” Big Smile

Let’s suppose I order a quantity of these. In the unlikely event that my tests reveal they do not live up to their claimed capacity, I am guessing I will be entitled to a full refund Evil

Supfire seems to have merged into Super Fire. Supfire products are often featured alongside those of Sofirn’s on the website of Lazada Singapore. Don’t know whether they have business ties.

Occasionally, Supfire gives 50% discount for purchase of six items or more. That is nice. Their batteries (which are usually sold along with chargers) and holsters are quite OK, affordable. But some of its flashlights are not reliable.

I bought one Y16 which came with two 21700 cells (for about US$35). It worked for just two days before its switch stopped working. So, stay away from this particular model.

I complained and sent a video showing the faulty Y16. And their diagnosis was that the tail cap is faulty and they promised to send me a replacement tail cap. After six weeks, nothing has come.
