Can I use button top cells? The graphic is only comforting to those who already have flat tops.

I have no 14500 cells, so I’m buying the cell suggested in the following graphic:

Not only do I figure button tops would be compatible with more lights, button-tops are what I’m actually finding in stock at illumn.

Normally the FWXX series lights take flat top cells, I would think these are the same.

I found the H10 here but they want $13 to ship from PA to GA!

I think I’ll keep using my 3A gold Vapcells for now. Is there really that much difference between the two?

Although my 50.2mm unprotected Shockli 14500 1000mAh with button top fits in FWAA, i personal wouldn't recommend them as it might wear off the cell and springs in long term. FYI: Vapcell H10 is 48.8mm.

Vapcell H10 seems to be the best battery for this light.

Right. Over $50 gets free shipping from Neal’s store. But under $50 shipping is $8. Previous group buys with Nealsgadgets had free shipping for the group buy item even if it was under $50. I guess that’s what some folks were expecting.

I see, thanks for clarifying!

I saw liion and I saw their UPS-only shipping. So yeah.

As far as a difference between 10 and and 3A, I guess it depends on how often you’re turboing.

Good to know. I’ll try to get some flats.

I now see the H10 flatties on Neal’s site. I looked last night and couldn’t see them so I didn’t even look this morning when I ordered. Wish there’d been a link on his FWAA page. No point in crying about spilt lithium. I sent Illumn an email asking when their flatties would be back in.

Now it’s time to sit on my hands and not order any more damn lights.

Damn they weren’t on Neal’s site this morning when I ordered both lights Sad

So the higher the amp rating the longer it can withstand being on turbo? I’m still a new when it comes to batteries lol.

Caved and bought a SST-20 4000k. Hopefully it is more similar in quality to the early FW3A’s more than the later ones. Thanks

Battery will be shipped together with your FWAA. Do leave a note if you wish to keep the battery inside the light.

It’s the opposite. Output on turbo will be higher and the light will get hotter and step down sooner.

If ordering H10s from the Vapcell store on Ali, be careful. There are 3 versions of 14500 batteries that are the same color (purple) I got absorbed in getting the lowest price (there are different venders) and didn’t notice until after they shipped. I ordered 4 C8 2A 14500 batteries I have no use for. Ouch. Had to reorder H10s.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

Sure, if we’re going to pretend what happens with a 3A cell can be considered “turbo.”

I saw those when I was looking. It’s goofy as heck that they even offer the other cells. To go from 10A to a measly 3A you gain just 50mA and save 42 cents per cell. But why would buy that when you could get just 800mAh and only 2A to save a wopping 12 cents per cell! Big Smile

Unless I’m missing something, it’s bad marketing that they even offer and put their name on anything but the best. Price an capacity weirdness aside, makes much less sense that the bottom of the barrel ones are the same color as the best, when the best they do offer is in fact one of the very best you can buy from any brand?! At least that I’ve seen.

Craig from Illumn says they’ll get stock in three weeks, so I’ll just wait it out and then wait another week.

Thanks freeme and Neal Thumbs Up Beer

I have unprotected button top Vapcell H10 and unprotected flat top Shockli H10 too, and now I ordered 1 H10 flat top to see the differences between these in terms of height!

I was wondering the same thing, Illum lists the minimum capacity which has a 100mAh difference between the 3A and 10A cells. Not sure why Vapcell carries both since 100mAh probably translates into less than a 5 min difference in runtimes

I know this is slightly off-topic but it still about leds. What is the difference between say,sst20 and orsam.So I guess I want to know more about Orsam leds.I m considering the Acebeam tk16 with orsam leds.

Ordered one with SST20.

Any chance there will be a stainless steel bezel available for these? I’d gladly add one of those to my order.
