Default WTB 16340 Batteries and Charger

Hi all,

I'm starting to build my 445nm build in a C2 host,

i've always wondered what to buy for 16340's but there just seems an endless selection of cheap and expensive batteries and chargers.

first off for the charger i've considered the nitecore i2 or i4 universal charger,

$14.80 Nitecore I2 Lithium Li-ion Ni-MH Ni-Cd Smart Battery Charger - US plug / 2-channel charger at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

$19.40 Nitecore I4 V2 Li-ion Ni-MH Ni-Cd Smart Battery Charger - 4-channel charger / version 2.0 at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

i've seen a few reviews on it stating how good and cheap the i2 and i4 charger is
but i also have a few other options

CR123A 16340 Rechargeable Liion Lithium Battery Charger | eBay

NEW Universal Battery Charger AA AAA 18650 16340 CR123A Smart Charger HOT EP98 | eBay

i know these are just cheap beyond belief but its always nice paying less for something

as for the batteries themselves i have absolutely no idea what to buy i've heard quite a few people say how bad and low capacity all the fire brands are but i haven't seen people recommend something particular more than once, so heres a few options i've gathered

2 Trustfire CR123A 3 6V Rechargeable Protected Battery | eBay

$4.38 UniqueFire 16340 3.7V 550mAh Protected Rechargeable Li-ion Batteries (2-Pack) 2-pack - with protection board at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

$7.90 Nitecore NL166 RCR123A 650mAh 3.7V Rechargeable Lithium Battery - CR123A at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

the nitecore batteries look to be of good quality but i can't justify spending over $14 just on a pair of batteries

so theres my options please tell me if i've somehow missed the whole jist of things and dont know about a specific product that everyone buys, i just dont know if nitecore is the way to go, i can understand spending the extra money on a quality charger but not $14 on a pair of batteries

if you've read so far than cheers any suggestion or help will be greatly appreciated, thankyou

The Nitecore is a great charger. I have one myself. As far as batteries you get what you pay for. You can get two AW IMR 16340's for $17 shipped.

They are some of the best cells out there and last many cycles.

I thought so about the charger, thanks DTR the batteries from ebay I listed used to be $1.12 for two of them wonder what the quality was like

i might check out those AW batteries you linked to, they must be good for the money you pay

If you want to go cheaper (I don't think they are better than AW's) you could try JUICE brand Batteries. They have an ebay page here: Juice Brand Rechargeable Photo Lithium CR123A Batteries | eBay Yobresal gave me some with a 1W blue and they seem to work fine.

And go with the the NiteCore, I just ordered one myself and I have heard many good things about them.

Thanks stin, wow they've sold a lot of the 16340 ones on ebay, might have to do some research on them i'm definitely getting the charger now

EDIT@DTR, although those AW 16340's are good the thread is over 7 years old and when you click please order 'here' it says error

Not sure what thread that is you linked to there it is not the one I just put up. Here it is again.
AW's LiIon Batteries Sales Thread *Part 12*

There is no buy button as far as I know. Send AW a PM and let him know what you want he will shoot you an invoice.

It is all good. You can buy from resellers but it is cheapest to go to the source.
