Nitecore NL1834 18650 Battery

3.7V 3400mAh

Incredibly powerful and remarkably safe, the Nitecore NL1834 18650 Battery is the best 18650 on the market! These incredible Lithium Ion batteries deliver an impressive 3.7 Volts of power and are capable of holding a charge of up to 3400 mAh, which is 62% more than the average 18650, making them perfect for high performance devices like the intense LED flashlights from Nitecore, as well as video game consoles, appliances, and more. The NL1834 comes with a sophisticated high-performance protected circuit that prevents the cell from overcharging and discharging, which can cause long term damage to the battery. The cell is capable of being recharged over 500 times, making it not only cost effective, but environmentally friendly as well.

Safe Design

Nitecore understands that safe use of a battery is just as important as the battery's production. Designed with safety in mind, the NL1834 features nickel-plated S.S. protectors at both ends that give the cell superior impact resistance, better electrical conductivity and quality oxidation resistance. To prevent against abrasions and other external damage, the cells are coated with a durable metallic film, while its protection circuit is coated with hard plastic. The battery features a unique anode that is designed to resist high temperatures, as well as a micro-porous barrier on the interior that protects the delicate internal components. The cell even comes with a specialized pressure relief valve that will activate in the event the battery experiences rapid temperature increase.


  • Intelligent protection circuit prevents overcharging / over-discharging
  • Nickel-plated S.S. protectors on either end provide quality impact resistance, electrical conductivity, and oxidation resistance
  • Durable metallic film coating to protect against abrasions

Consistently great
December 23, 2016
I've only used a couple of brands of 18650 with my headlamp, and these nitecore 3400mAhn lithium batteries are fantastic. They last SO long! I am not sure if it's the light, the battery, or my imagination, but the light also stays consistently bright almost right up to the time it finally gives out before needing a charge. Sorry this is not more of a technical review, but I'm just an everyday user of a headlamp that I rely on a great deal, and the best I can offer is that I am very, very satisfied with these batteries.
  • Long, consistent light throughout the span of one charge.
  • The amount of charge, and thus the time between charges is truly remarkable.
  • All around great batteries.
  • Seems to take a long time to fully charge--but that could be because I am using the device instead of a separate charger. Still, plugging it in at night renders it fully charged by morning.

Long Lasting, High Quality
December 4, 2016
I use these batteries in ALL my flashlights, high quality and fit in the varied flashlights I own. The 3400's last way much longer than the 2600 batteries I used to run and much brighter than the Panasonic 3.6V's I own. Also added bonus of protection gives peace of mind when charging, all this at a great price -even better when they're on sale!
  • Long lasting, lots of power at 3.7Vs, high quality at a great price
  • Was sent a battery that had a tear in its wrapper that started to spread, it was immediately replaced by Battery Junction -GREAT customer service!

Didn’t work for what I needed
June 13, 2022
I bought this to replace the solar rechargeable battery on my ring path light. It charged normally when I got it with the cable before installation, but did not charge with the solar panel. Worked for a couple days and now the battery won’t charge with the charging cable.

Nitecore NL1834
March 24, 2022
When I took over ordering supplies for the foundry, one of the first things I noticed was our purchase history of CR123A. We went through a lot.

I kept the batteries in my office so I could figure the value these had. Sometimes once a 12 hour shift but certainly twice a week guys were coming in for new CR123A batteries.
With these NL1834 I'm swapping charged for dead batteries roughly every 7 shifts. That is incredible.

The math I did testing these and averaging the use, they pay for themselves in just under 41 shifts. Based on the packaging a rough life expectancy would be around 3300-3500 shifts worth.

I did have one accident where a rookie set his Nitecore P10 V2 with a NL1834 down next to a furnace for about a minute, pushing well beyond the high temperature warning on the batteries' package and it popped, ruining the flashlight and battery. I didn't remove any stars from my rating over it, just glad nobody got hurt over a such a dumb mistake.

I Trust These Nitecore Batteries
March 3, 2022
I've been using these batteries for years and decided to buy another 18650. Checking around, I found some cheaper ones that said they also had circuit protections but in the end I decided to stay with what works reliably and safely and proven in use for me. Battery Junction has also always come through for me as well.

from SWF asked:
May 22, 2014
Nitecore states it can run on 18650. I see Nitecore has several 18650 rechargeable batteries with different mAh? I know nothing about battery tech. Will the SRT run on all of the nitecore 18650? I suppose the higher the mAh number the better or longer or brighter?
1 Answer
Yes, the SRT5 is compatible with all of the Nitecore 18650 batteries. The mAh refers to the capacity of the battery, which means the higher the mAh, the longer the runtime.
