    So Far . . . . only charged once – it took plenty of mA to fully charge upon receipt – so it’s clearly near the stated mAh capacity. In service now! I like the added mini-usb chargeability – adds portability, though I’ll usually use my own charger.

    I appreciate the light indicator on the top of the recharger battery, but I wish the indicator would flash or blink when close to full charge instead of the solid red light when plugged in. I.e less than fifty 1 blink a second, seventy five percent charge 2 blinks… etc. I know I’m asking for a smarter battery which would be hard to program and install in such a small device, but I wouldn’t mind spending the extra money for a simple feature like that.

    Incredible flashlight. Extremely bright and nice to have the different levels of brightness. I probably should have opted for both instead of one, to have the rechargeable feature but i’ll just use the rechargeable one to charge both batteries. It’s amazing for such a small flashlight to have the power it has.

    I have charged these batteries without a problem but, honestly, I’m still using the 2600mAh that I’ve been using for a few years now so I really cannot review this battery yet. I use my Fenix UC35 on the lower brightness settings maybe 80% of the time, so the batteries LAST quite a while. I do expect the 3500mAh to last a ridiculously long time.

    These are great batteries. The run times in both the HP25R and HL60R are outstanding. Having the ability to recharge outside of the lamps allows me to top off multiple batteries at one time without a dedicated charger. The only issue I have had with these is one burned out when I accidentally plugged it into my cell phones quick charger. These batteries are pretty long, but will also work with some of the Zebra lights as well.

    This battery is beyond amazing, I have been messing with 18650’s for over 4 years now and this thing is almost impossible to drain. I can use it for weeks with my pd32 on high & turbo mode for a few minutes (give or take) or so a day, at work, at home, or just whenever needed, and every time I throw it on the charger to see how much it has drained – I have never seen it below 4.05V. This thing is simply a monster. As everyone knows though, you get what you pay for! The added micro usb port, and extra Mah is a HUGE plus! I dont see how 18650s could get much better than this one. Dont think…just BUY! : )

    This battery is beyond amazing, I have been using 18650’s for over 4 years now for all sorts of things and this one seems almost impossible to drain. The cutoff voltage is 4.2V. & I can literally use it for weeks in my pd32 on high & turbo mode for 5 minutes (give or take) or so a day, at work or at home or just whenever needed, and every time I throw it on the charger to see how much it has drained – it never has been below 4.05V. This thing is simply a monster. As everyone knows though, you get what you pay for! Not to mention the added micro Usb port and extra Mah is a Huge Plus! I just simply don’t see how 18650’s could get any better than this one when it comes to Fenix tactical flashlights. Dont think…just BUY! : )

    Bought the PD35 tactical flashlight and the battery charger. I had a PD35 with the 3400 battery already. To my surprise the tactical came with a 3500 battery. I swapped batteries, put the 3500 battery in my PD35 and vis-versa both lights now have the same top brightness. So if you already have the PD35 with a 3400 battery… upgrade the battery, it will blow you away

    Haven’t baught one yet, but I’m glad they went to a 3500 mAh capacity, also like that it has a fully charged light. Looks like a great battery.
