Default What's a reputable seller I can get rechargable 26650 batteries and a charger?

Would like to have batteries for my laser when it comes. I'm okay with paying a little more than usual if it corresponds to an increase in quality.

This is where I get my batteries(if I can't find them in a nearby store) and charger. Also, there's a 5% discount if you use this code: THNKU5

Batteries, Chargers, LED Flashlights, and More!

Be very careful with eBay. I actually recommend not shopping there, Amazon or any discount china sites as there are so many fakes and misrepresentations. Most just with overblown specs or are rewrapped used cells with a brand name wrapper but some are down right dangerous.

I shop mostly Illumination Supply since Lighthound went away unless they don't have exactly what I need.
Batteries, Chargers, and PowerPax Carriers
If you need 26650 I really like these.
26650 KeepPower 5200mAh IMR26650 High Discharge Flat Top - Batteries, Chargers, and PowerPax Carriers
If you need a reliable cheap charge the I2 and I4 are solid and very well priced. Have had two I4's for several years and they regardless of the cell chemistry or capacity still always complete a perfect charge.

Nitecore i4 Intellicharger Li-ion, NiMH/NiCd Charger - Chargers - Batteries, Chargers, and PowerPax Carriers

For 26650 MNKE and Efeast are good as well. Battery Junction mentioned above and Battery Space are also reputable vendors.

Welcome to LPF, Professor!
As mentioned above Illumination Supply is one of the best, also I use Mountain Electronics for some of my batteries, they also have a pretty good selection of chargers.
Like Illumination Supply, they are also based here in the U.S. (Utah), so shipping should be quick. I ordered (4)14500 batteries from Mountain on 7/17, and received them today, 7/21, not bad at all.

Edit: Here is a good comprehensive site for battery and charger information and comparisons!

Edit #2: This charger "Opus BT-C3100 V 2.1" is also a good choice IMO, it has been offered here in the past through a group buy; I have one and am satisfied with it. Many times you can find it on sale for less at Gearbest.

That's a great site Jeff. I had noticed that every quality charger I own doesn't charge to 4.2V and noticed this article:
Battery charge 4.2 volt?
