The price was def great. But they came dead. And they just dont seem to last very long. My old batteries last longer. I hate to leave a bad review but i have to be honest about it. The shipping and price were good tho.

Holds a charge. Unlike cheap knock-offs. I use it in my Arymi M1 mod. Perfect @ low watts.

I have a 200W box mod for vaping that runs on 18650s, I bought these after reading great reviews. So far so good, they last all day and never heat up.

The most powerful 18650

Sony VTC5A is the very best from Battery Junction. Makes the Jetbeam TH20 impressive. Yes, thatís right, the gold-plated slightly raised button on the head-end of the Jetbeam TH20 LED flashlight allows good contact with the flat-top of the Sony VTC5A. Works fine for me. There is no post that gets in the way of using flat tops like the Nitecore SRT-9 flashlight does.

I only trust Battery Junction to supply me with Genuine Sony VTC5A and VTC4 batteries. The difference in performance in my Jetbeam TH20 as compared with a 20A 2600mAh battery is quite noticeable. The other-brand 20A battery is unimpressive. Only Battery Junctionís Sony VTC5A brings out the full potential of the Jetbeam TH20!
