5 of 5 Very happy February 17, 2024
Reviewer: Noah McCubbins from Louisville, KY United States  
I purchased this 16340 battery because it was the best capacity battery of its type that I could find from a reliable retailer. I’m using it in a Malkoff head and body with a 4000K SST-20 emitter. Working great so far.

2 of 5 Wrong battery January 22, 2024
Reviewer: Caleb from Coeur d'Alene, ID United States  
I needed a specific battery so I had a back up for a optic. I went to nitecore since the battery that came with it was theirs, but when I look for the battery I have it says not available or discontinued or similar and says that this other battery is the replacement so I order one. Get it and it is too long. I get a hold of the company about swapping and they want me to ship on my dime to get swapped. So I just ordered the correct size battery after they suggested another model and won't be buying again.  Slow shipping also

5 of 5 7 years strong October 28, 2023
Reviewer: ZM from Seattle, WA United States  
Bought these batteries to upgrade the 650mah version of this battery I've been using in my work flashlight for the past 7 years. The 650's performed quite well, enduring years of hard use.
So far, I'm equally impressed with the new 950mah version.
