Klarus 21700 Replacement

I recently purchased a Klarus XT21X with a faulty battery. After looking for a replacement the only 5000mah 15amp cells I could find were Klarus and Nitecore. Since I’m uninformed on flashlight battery specs I wanted some definitive advice on the best replacement – rather than buy the Klarus just for the name. I don’t mind spending 25 bucks for the oem as long as there is not a more reliable, more efficient at a lower price. Any help is appreciated.

Many options. It looks like your light takes a 21700

This is a partial list but there are more.

Thanks for the reply.
What is the difference in the Klarus having 5000mah vs the Samsung 4000mah 30amp? Last, Do I need a protected/unprotected cell with button top or flat?

Those mAh’s are just capacity which equals to runtimes so bigger the mAh the more runtime you get.

Understood. My understanding if a light comes with (in my case) a 15amp battery it is preferable to use equal to or above that 15amp – not below? Is there something you would recommend me reading to give me a basic understanding battery related?

Exactly.
