I give 2 stars because I bought a Fenix flashlight and the package said “Powered By Two 18650 Li-Ion Batteries”. I wish I would have known that they need to be a more specific battery before wasting my time going to Batteries Plus and spending $53.72. Time is money. I would have sent my client the batteries needed.
They work perfectly for my light and I’m able to do longer night rides. Stoked!!
Fenix lights and batteries are amazing. I use them every day on the job and I used to go through AA batteries in my last headlamps and flashlights like they were going out of style. I’d carry 10 packs of them to do the same job as my Fenix do in one charge cycle. The charger is much better to use vs the USB cord connected to my flashlight as it provides a more complete charge that outlasts AA’s or the USB cord.
So far it’s working as they say and the charger is good. Can be charging xtra battery and use your lights
Charger is easy to read and use, battery charge last many hours
