LiPF6-based Protected
With so many to buy for the low power torches (7W max) , just looking for some reasonable quality protected 18650. These on FastTech are very cheap.

LiPF6-based

FandyFire BRC18650 3.7V "2200mAh" Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery (2-Pack)
£3.43 for 2, Tested, 1500

Wonder how these would compare to say a Samsung at £8.89 for 2

Anybody used FandyFire :0 for anything ?

RE: LiPF6-based Protected
They are *Fire cells!

And are standard low capacity, probably very low quality ICR cells.

They are likely quality control fails or laptop pack pulls.

Neither bode well for their use.

No worse than any other ICR cell of crappy quality and unknown provenance.

Nope. Individual items may or may not be good.

Those might just be - but 1500mAh from an alleged 2200mAh cell? What else are they lying about.
