FWIW.. I have some Flames from DX which I bought in August I believe with the trashcan symbols.

Usually fakes have different flames and worst quality of the wrap; in originals all the battery warp change color looked with a different angle(where is not deep painted), you can see that better on the written from "WARNING" to "water" and on the big TRUSTFIRE logo

my 14500 flames weight is from 20,54 to 20,66g(I tested 5) btw chk the weight is not ever infallible...

look at HJK new test of 18650 flames(from DX) are different(bin logo) and lower weight of mine 43,1g and worst performance of all tested flames

I wish to add that on my next DD orders I got 6 pairs of original protected 18650 flames with hologram and of "correct" weight ~47,7g

Anyone with a confirmation which one of the 6 offerings are the Protected ones, original with hologram sticker?

*FMI* i got 4 i/o sh

I can't guarantee a hologram sticker (forgot to check).  I know some WANTS the sticker.  But i and Cheap Thrills can guarantee (more or less) these guys give you just a wee bit below 2400mAh @ 1A discharge, IIRC it is 2389mAh or something.  SKU  TrustFire SKU: A06730000K (8.69$)    This is very very good.   This is more important than the sticker.  The PCB dead short protection works great and flawlessly every time. (esp important for budgetlights)

Should be the same batch.

Thanks man, good advice! They are also the cheapest, so i will probably buy them thanks to your recommendation.

Meanwhile, maybe someone knows the SKU which comes guaranteed with a hologram sticker? one day i really want to own a copy of that darn sticker, for my records and documents.

Good idea, will do that.

Actually i dont have a problem with marking my cells. I just wanted an original sticker which i could stick/glue onto my printed invoice as i always do. i am not mr pathetic but i do collect all of my invoices (of hobby items, like CDs, books, flashlights, PC parts, ..) in printed format in a plastic folder. and i enjoy removing all kinds of stickers/stamps from the post package AND from the product package, and re-stick them onto the printed invoice.

I guess my real passion is not collecting CDs or collecting flashlights but collecting invoices or collecting the stickers :Sp

I first got 2 fake pairs of the quoted and on the next 6 good with hologram, them improved Smile btw is still a random system take care xD

DD sell also the new 3000mAh flames (on photo looks original and protected but description sux...) btw price is way more high of manafont! ...you should speck with your boss about both the issues, happy summer festival kreisler xD

P.S. I could ship you some warp with hologram if u stop cry xD

P.P.S. I collect DD postcards.. I count them with the caliper actually 1,5cm xD

HKJ that flames are like that? All the battery warp change color looked with a different angle?(where is not deep painted), you can see that better on the written from "WARNING" to "water" and on the big TRUSTFIRE logo, if not probably are fakes.
