What batteries should I use for a 1W 520nm 2x 26650 or 2x 18650 Lio-ion batteries?

It doesn't matter, both will work fine, there's a big difference in size though, the 26650 are much larger and can give you more time between recharging. Be sure you have a charger that takes them.

Depends upon what size batteries your host is designed to take.

A 18650 is 18mm X 65mm , a 26650 is 26mm X 65 mm

Some 520nm laser can take 2X16340, 2X 18650, or 2X 26650 as is the case with JetLasers PL-E Pro 520nm 520nm green laser pointer, 520nm 1000mW green lasers, 1w green laser diode 520nm JETLASERS

High quality/high mAh 26650s will give longest run time between charges but either of them will work fine as will 2X16340

Im using a XML-T6 Kit from Budget Beams it comes with plastic spacers which you can put in 18650 or 26650 batteries in.

either or will work with the t6 you may need a battery tube if you use the 18650 it will be a little loose but will work non the less
