18350's generally have more capacity but you've gotta make sure that they will fit in your laser before purchasing. XXXXfire's are always hit and miss so it's better to buy from reputable brands where you know what you are getting.

It also depends on the current draw of the laser in question. For high drain devices, any brand name IMR battery will do better than a standard ICR chemistry. AW, Efest etc are good brands too choose from.

from what I've seen various hosts that fit 16340s also fit 18350s, as many are derived from 18650 (same width, different length) hosts. ie the laserbtb PL hosts either take 1x 18650 or two 16340s, but in reality as the ones that take 2x 16340s are just the 18650 host with a different driver the 18350s seem to fit. I did it with my blue and it stopped the loose connection from the thinner 16340s rattling around inside it.
