Conclusion
Usually 16650/17650 cells are based on a 4.35V Sanyo cells, but not these cells and they can deliver considerable more current.

Thank you very much for this review HKJ!
I guess I’ll have some use for it Wink

BTW, am I right saying that the major difference will be above 3A, where this Vapcell stands out?

I use 16650s in my mix of On The Road M1 (tail) and i3 (head). Perfect fit!
Also, there is a light that I will have to have one day, juts because, which is the Foursevens Quark QK16L MKIII, made by Jason from Prometheus lights.

Diameter match one CR123, length matches two CR123, this means dual CR123 light that can work at a lower voltage.
