Okay so guys, I just don't understand whats going on here.
These batteries look legit: trustfire
2x Rechargeable 880mAh Lithium TF16340 3.7 V with protection - Accessories
These batteries look like crap: trustfire
http://www.amazon.com/TrustFire-TR1...id=1415731415&sr=8-7&keywords=trustfire+16340
Are the batteries in the second link really trustfire?

I feel like "blue" batteries just don't make the cut in my book.

I've seen trustfire batteries in many different colors, many of them in that blue color in the second link.
I've just looked at the trustfire site, and most everything being offered now looks like the ones in your first link.
Personally, I wouldn't buy either one, or any ____fire batteries unless I had no other choice; there are too many other good brands to pick from.

Check out this thread, it's not a trustfire, but one of the "other" fires.

Thanks. Zfire, trustfire and ultrafire seem to be crap. I have now bought some Efest batts.

I'd recommend Nitecore 16340 batteries. Though they are a bit pricey, they have been performing very well in my laser. And they go perfectly with the Nitecore charger :crackup:

Edit: for starters, I wouldn't use any batteries ending in "fire".
They probably got those names in the testing lab.

Gave me a good laugh!

Yes Efest and Nitecore are both better than Trustfire. Sometimes if you order blue batteries you may get some generic blue batteries with no brand name on them and those are the lowest quality batteries.

Imagine that. You wouldn't have accumulated all those red bars if you have thought to search before you posted all those things.
He wouldn't have all the positive rep for people feeling bad for him either.

To the OP, Trustfire batteries are not crap. None of the trustfire batteries I have purchased have failed on me. Ultrafire on the other hand is IMO the worst.
