There a bit far out for me i got mine from torchy here in the UK, I tend to buy batteries from the UK because there's so many fakes about and it's easier and quicker to get a refund if they are fakes, I always test them nowadays as i don't trust most sellers lol I'm thinking these new 21700 batteries will be also ideal for torches as well prob last longer than the 18650s if i can find some torches Smile Haven't had a look yet but have noticed more and more mods are using them now so dare say there will also be a few torches that take them now Good I can see them and 20700s becoming more popular, most of the torches i use now take 26650s which i also like, I'm finding since i've upped the wattage on my mods there just not lasting long enough with 18650s which is to be expected only a few hours at a time hopefully these will last a bit longer when i start buying the newer mods that take them

217000 should work well in a torch , i get huge use replacing a tri AAA with an 18650.
I recently set my nephew up with a flashlight specifically designed for 217000 battery as a car flashlight

RE: What did you get today?
The AA and AAA are fine for low powered torches which i use on the bankside when fishing so i don't disturb the fish but when walking to and from and walking the dog you need something that will last longer with brighter torches Smile Through i tend to use beasts that lights up a full field when walking lol My bigger ones use either 3 x 26650s or 6 x 18650s

You by chance have acess to Maglite i got a 6 D cell that brings the light of day
For low light situation i often use chem-falres , plenty light to rebait or se an item , but not quite enough to retie a hook or lead

I used to have them but moved away from them a few years ago when the cree led came out, As there alot brighter than the mags but i did get a led bulbs for the mini maglite which made them a little brighter but no where near to the led torches, I think i paid about £6 just for the led fitting the whole price then for a mini mag was about £10 lol I did have a mag that took 4 d cells for the taxi but that was not for a torch haha

That's what mine came with and a spare in the cap but there no where near as bright as leds, The leds i got for it lasted alot longer and i would say are 50% brighter but still only any good for fishing deff not bright enough for walking, I think the average cree bulb in a similar sized torch are about 5 to 10 times brighter than the standard mini mag halogen bulb
