Where I can buy real 18650 batteries?

In my opinion, every intervention in RFD deserve a "thanks". Thanks given until now: more than 100,000

Don't buy from eBay. Most of the vendors are from China. I ordered the same batteries for a flashlight and the damn batteries arrived in 45 days after payment. Pay more and look for a domestic supplier. Who the hell can wait 45 days?

Buy from Leading Manufacturers. Consumers buy from brands that they trust, and both Sony and Panasonic, among other leading battery manufacturers, have given 18650 batteries credence for everyday use. Here are three sellers and u can google more:

of course you are paying non-ebay price if you are baying from local supplier.
depends what you need it for. I agree, that on ebay a lot of fake stuff. If you have time to wait for shipping, here is what I did. I purchased several time 18650.
after receiving once I had fake or defective. capacity was around 1amp/h. I contacted the seller and he send me a new one.
so, over all, for like $2-4 you have it with delay or for double or more price you are getting not fake, most likely. you are not protected from defective one.
on ebay look for a good feedback. also, you may look on battery with protection. I think it will be a lower chance to get fake due the additional internal circuitry

Sounds like a waste of money to use flour. I'm surprised it isn't just soil/dirt.
