Can you still stack both codes? When it was $3.99, I could applied both codes and get a discount of $0.80

I don't know since I used one of the code already and each code is one time use only. If anyone wants to order, he can try to enter both codes.

For your curiosity, here is the some picture of the battery.
"Sheef-life of 10 years"

Is that 5-years Human-life?

18650 should just be taken carefully anyways as they hold a lot of power.

I agree. I'm trying to find 18650 battery case to minimize the chance of short circuit. Amazon is too expensive and I don't want to buy it from Aliexpress as taking too long to ship. Anyone knows if Dollarama has it ?

I would be worried about that battery for one important detail - no-one makes 5,800 mAh 18650s... Currently, the highest capacity 18650 cells hold approx 3,500 to 3,700 mAh and cost over $10 US a piece for unprotected cells - add a few bucks to have them protected. Plus the spelling mistakes on the label doesn't actually give me confidence in the battery.

They can be if they aren't handled correctly OR they are of poor quality.

Yes, the package comes with the adapter allowing to use 4 x AAA battery instead of using 18650.

Buy these, they fit 18650s quite well. I remove the flint on the bottom for extra safety and better stability when standing

That is hilarious, someone should send these to Elon Musk, they can extend EV range by over 50% since packaging never lies and this company has invented better batteries then the best Panasonic on earth :facepalm:

What I was getting at was that when individual cells are wrapped together to form a pack, the potential problems multiple as the heat generated from a pack (either charging or discharging or even just sitting there sell discharging) may not be properly dealt with - the individual cells get too warm causing failure conditions (by going past the specifications of the cells themselves) as the temperature of the pack goes up. Individual cells used in standalone applications won't have to deal with 'contained' heat within a pack so then it just comes down to how well the individual cell is made rather than factoring in the pack design.
18650 packs are not rare, most lithium power tools are made of 18650s in series with proper control circuitry and name brand cells. We seldom hear of them failing on the news because they are made with quality parts and the required control circuits. Also these have been used as laptop cells for many years

But those are the ones that are designed correctly. Who said that the hoverboard manufacturers knew how to design or purchase packs? I'll bet that they just got the ones that will fit in the case or 'designed' the pack that will fit.

My point is that lithium ion is much more dangerous if the batteries are poorly made and/or the control and charging circuitry is incorrect or omitted.
These cheap no name cells are dangerous and frankly should be banned.

Buy the flashlight and throw away the batteries, if you are worried. =)
