Buyer beware - batteries

Add UltraFire to the list of ****Fire batteries that are suspect. I picked up a pair of these at Harbor Freight. One was charged about 5 times before it wouldn't accept a charge anymore. The other runs down fairly quick.

Right now the most reliable brands are Samsung, Panasonic, Efest, Nitecore, Keeppower, King Kong and a few others.  As mentioned earlier, Mountain Electronics is a trusted U.S. based source for quality batteries.

Tenergy is suppose to be the best in C and D cells.

I am slowly switching over to the Tenergy. Especially after getting stung with the Ultrafire.

I'm using them in the 16340 size... got a couple of their smart chargers and rotating 16 cells at this time. ( 3.7v Li-ion )

Where are you buying them from?  And what sizes are generally available?  I'm mostly into 26650, 18650, 18350, 16340 and 14500.

Plus 1 here for battery junction. In fact, I’m going there tomorrow to pick up an order. They are local to me and nice people. 
As said already, you get what you pay for.
