Will the sipik clones from tomtop handle 14500's?

They seem to be the better made clones out there. Wonder if they will accept the 14500 batteries or if I’m doomed to use primary 1.5v’s?

yes they work fine with 14500s. ( or NiMhs or Alcalines) i have the original Sipiks and various clones from most suppliers and all of them work great with the Lithium 14500s.

Yup, they all work with 14500’s.

is the pill with hole ?

Tomtop sold me real sipiks a couple years ago.

IDK. I’ll check. Btw, these seem to be a much better build than the green one I bought a year ago. They were about 16 bucks for four.
