Best value for money protected 21700 cells?

I might need to get some protected 21700 cells.

(I recently ordered the Acebeam E70-AL.)

I already have these cells, but they are unprotected:

So, what's the best deal for relatively high drain (& high capacity) PROTECTED 21700 cells?

Why do you need protected cells — doesn’t the light have a low voltage protection

The E70 has become my favorite light. Not for all applications but its real sweet.

Unprotected cells may be too short for the Acebeam E70-AL.  :BEER:

Thanks for that!

Wow, protected 21700 cells are kinda pricey.

I think I would go with the Keeppower 21700 P2150R for $14 a piece.

(Those are supposed to be able to handle 15 amps of discharging.)
