Which is the best of these 3 batteries?

Hello, I’m new to the forum and have a simple question:

Which of these 3 rechargeable LiCoO2 Li-Ion batteries are the best?

1). Nitecore 18650 3400mAh 3.7V Protected Lithium Ion
2). Olight 18650 3400mAh 3.6V Protected Lithium Ion
3). XTAR 18650 3400mAh 3.6V Protected Lithium Ion

ps. Price doesn’t matter, only performance, simple at that!

Thank you in advance for your help!

18650-LiCoO2

they are all basally  the same cell; likely on a panasonic core. So any of them will be fine.

Where are you located? If in the US, you can get the same Panasonic/Sanyo protected cell for 1/3rd the price. Nitecore, Olight & Xtar don’t make batteries, they re-wrap Panasonic/Sanyo with their name on the wrapper, and charge an arm and a leg for it. If you are not in the US, then I have no idea where you can get them.

Example here, and if you want even a better one, here

I asked LiIonWholesale.com about the these.

Me:

Quote:
How do these PROTECTED PANASONIC/SANYO NCR18650GA 18650 BUTTON TOP BATTERY compare to Keeppower, Evva and Orbtronic brand protected 18650 that also utilize NCR18650GA cells?

Their response:

Quote:
They are just as good or better than those batteries you mention from other companies. The cell is exactly the same, but we use one of the best protection circuits on the market. We also use a clear wrapper so you can see the cell underneath.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Exactly, Keeppower, Orbtronic, Ewa, and Efest for that matter, don’t manufacture batteries. They re-wrap them. Panasonic/Sanyo doesn’t make a battery with a protection circuit, they are added by resellers. In the case of Liionwholesale, they add a Seiko protection circuit.
