Anyone know anything about Powertech batteries? Especially members in Oz.

I have a friend in Australia that fitted an 8xamc7135 driver and an XML to a flashlight and he contacted me to say he was only getting about 1.4 amps at the tailcap. I asked him about the battery type and it was one of the crappy Ultrafire batteries. I suggested getting some Trustfire flames but he bought a Powertech 18650 locally and the tailcap current went up to 1.8 amps.

I will also add that he paid AU$19.95 for one battery and he expected something special for that price.

Does anybody have any experience of these?

Chinese - Manufacturer - Mainly Lipo from the looks of it ..

Apparently the battery in question may have been sold by Jaycar - [ Charge like wounded bulls ] 

$19 for a Chinese cell [ ?????? ] Id say , live and learn ... 

The driver is only part of the story , emitter ?  

Is it a protected battery ?  at least ? [ for that price ] 

If he is prepared to pay that kind of money , he should look at re wrapped japanese cells , with protection circuit added .  

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….
