    It's only a 2C battery, but the capacity is quite high, so maximum power from this battery should be considered to be 23 watts based on the nominal voltage (3.75V)

    Charge voltage for this high capacity is 4.35 volts, not the usual 4.21 volts so you may not see the full capacity since most chargers will not go that high.

    The cell seems to be equipped with a PTC circuit to protect it from high current drain, however it's temperature dependant so I wouldn't rely on it. The spec sheet doesn't mention any other protection circuits: http://gamma.spb.ru/media/pdf/liion-...R18650-32A.pdf

    I think I'd only recommend using this in a mod with full protection circuits (short circuit, low voltage) and within the 2C current drain (6400mA)

    Edit: it's a useful battery if you want something with high capacity. Used correctly in anything like a 20W maximum mod, it will run all day. For the SuBox mini (Kbox 50 watt) I can't recommend these batteries. It would be dangerous to put these batteries in this mod. If you forgot and turned it up much higher than 23 watts, or it got adjusted accidentally, or someone else tried to use the mod and didn't know, then a serious accident could occur.

    couple that with a Soshine Universal charger and you will be able to keep your next lot of batteries charged for well over a week even you are away from power ;-)

    I suggest the Samsung 25R batteries. http://www.vapeking.com.au/samsung-i...ery-25r2-25r5/

    It depends on the torch. The Cree LED units draw about 700mA each and a small single cell high quality torch has four of these, so perfectly safe (total current 2800mA, less than 1C) These batteries will run that torch for a couple of hours each.

    A word of warning though, these torches are not vented - they are intentionally made water proof, which seems a bit silly when you think about it, plus the case tends to run very warm as it is the heatsink for the LED array. I have one and only like to use it for about 5 minutes at a time. Some people drill holes in the battery case for venting in case something does go wrong but of course it's no longer weatherproof. Without the holes, if the battery vents then the torch becomes a pipe bomb.

    The best advice I can give you is don't put batteries that have just come off charge into the torch and turn it on. This goes for any device really.
