I have torches, camping lanterns for power fail.. so would need to get a few batteries. One of the torches gets hot in 3 min, so I don't keep that on for more than 2 min, I have other torches that also take 16350 and 18650.

I went through a phase of randomly buying them, my son goes fishing a lot so bought lots that clip around your head, but all those had battery packs.

Yes there is quite a few that are protected but still get hot but that's what the huge heatsinks are for but i don't like leaving them on for to long, I started off buying a mix of torches but am more selective now getting some bigger better quality ones, I need to get a glass cabinet to keep them in, most have a great build quality nowadays which i wished i had years ago, i only use certain ones for fishing, When i go night fishing i have one for walking to the river/pond bank (brightest one) and the smaller ones for when i'm fishing also a lantern when i'm carp fishing but i don't like anything to bright when fishing, I recently got a cap lamp that i've yet to try it only cost £10 fully adjustable very handy it will be good for sea fishing this is the one Smile It didn't come with batteries but if it came with the ones in the link they would be binned lol

Yer that the trouble, sometime get a good torch and get very bad batteries with it. I buy without batteries now when ever I can. My son goes boat fishing in the Bristol Channel regular, he went through a lot of cheap ones. So I bought him a Lenser says its very good, it would be wasted on my though.

Well those other batteries arrived just now, Ill put them on charge later, my present batteries last all day and up to 2:0am  :0 so lets see how these do after a few charges

Yer the odd times i get them with batteries already with them but there not advertised with the torch so they go in the bin Sarcastic_hand Led Lenser are a good torch but very overpriced for what they are i've got the p7.2 a good torch but i wouldn't buy another purely because of the price, If you can get hold of an Oldam cap lamp there fantastic through the battery is bulky they last about 36 hours on main beam and a week or so solid on dip but new there prob about £100 for a full set up now if you can still get them its the same as what the miners use down the pits Smile Its well worth paying for good quality batteries you already know the benifits Smile
Just looked on the link Ouch!!! lol but it will be good quality you wont have any problems with it Good2 you deff need a good reliable torch when boat fishing

Be wasted on me, Ive no use for a torch like that, but he does. I'm a gadget man, sometimes its just a case of "must have" I have boxes of led strips :0 some with running displays with over 200 programs.. sitting in a draw now, lost interest when got them up and running. So now just need some bright torches for looking around shed :0 at 2:00am.. But must get some good batteries that's for sure

The Olight Batons are wonderful.

The 18650 ones are really, really nice.

I got given one recently. It obsoletes something like 100 of the lights I own.

Have you tried modding/building your own yet? You can get some really good lights that way. I built a nice EDC 18650 light a while back using parts from FT, I think it cost around $10 USD total for a host, driver, and Cree XM-L2 LED. You only have to solder the driver to the LED and screw the pill into the host, pop a reflector on there and suddenly you've built a light in ten minutes.
