Shift from 18650 to 21700
« on: March 12, 2019, 08:54:09 AM »
Hello Everyone
I am new in this forum and have already a question.

Do you know why many flashlight producers slowly start shifting toward 21700 types instead of remaining on 18650?

I know that 21700 have more possible capacity than the 18650 but are there any other profits?

Glad to hear your opinion on this subject.

Different people think different ways. on all items.
Myself. I use 10440/123A 14550 18650 26650 etc.
But never got to like or use the 2000/21000 series.

I can't honestly say they worth even looking at. Basically TOO similar to the 18650.
It's just dealers/mfg's trying to make another segment of a small market to have "some" people buy a few more battery's.

18650 cover MOST of the hand held electrical output market.
SOME  (A LOT) find them a bit skinny in the hand to hold. whereas the 26650 fit much more comfortably.

The 21000 ser are NO thicker. to hold. with only a slight  capacity advantage.
Why. Really.... Bother?.
