Suitable Replacement For Klarus Protected 26650 Cell?

Looking for suitable replacement cells for the Klarus protected 26650 5000mAh cell. This cell measures approximately 26.2 mm diameter and 69.4 mm long.

 

The only similar protected cell I've found (so far) is a Trustfire cell here.

 

Can anyone suggest other similar sized protected cells?

 

Thanks.

I have some old Keeppower 5200mAh protected that measure 70.3mm with a raised top (not a button top). Model P2652C if those are still around. They’re very good cells but the max current is lower than some more recent 26650 cells. I switched to the Vapcell “red elephant” unprotected (67mm) and those were better output. If your Klarus has dual springs then the extra mm on the Keeppower shouldn’t be a problem.

Thrunite and Lumintop both have 26650 protected cells but I don’t know what the dimensions are…likely the same-ish.

Just nosing around a little and didn’t find much in protected cells, but Simon does have a newer Keeppower for sale. More capacity and a little more current: https://www.aliexpress.us/item/2251832853937628.html (can’t seem to get a generic product link anymore but it should reroute itself for your region)

Many thanks for the detailed reply!

 

Yes. KeepPower have several protected 26650 cells in various capacities. Link here. I missed KeepPower when searching for suitable replacement cells!?

 

Thrunite has a suitable replacement cell. I thought I had checked Thrunite previously, but maybe not? Or maybe not paying close enough attention?

 

I can't find any 26650 cells at Lumintop website nor at their AliExpress store(?)

I probably wouldn’t buy any battery with Trustfire on. 90% chance it will be garbage.

I’d probably buy a 21700 of good quality and an adapter/insert for it. The 21700’s seem to out perform the 26650’s IMO. At least the ones I’ve tried. I also probably would go INR rather than protected ICR.
