Yes I use 2 x 18350, Rich made a sleeve adaptor so it can hold 1 x 26650 or 1 x 18650 or 2 x 18350
I'm a fan of the 26350. Huge runtime advantage over 18350. The s11 will definitly be on my radar.

Where do you buy your 26350 cells ?
I usually buy EFest and AW as I like to buy good quality cells, 26350 I am only finding no name Chinese such as these.

Hi, Maybe that would be 26650 ,but with the build he has it could be 18650's. I dont think I ever seen 26350's even if there was it would do him any good with the S2+ Convoy.

We were talking about using 2 x 26350 in the convoy S11 such as these. :)
They are also for sale at ebay but I have not bought any yet so I don't know if there any good or not.

Hi Red
That’s new to me thanks for clarifying that
I guess he was correct about them
Do you think they would work being that they at 350mm long that would mean longer fun time between charges if so that would be great for a NDG7475 or 03 build with a copper sink

Unfortunately there aren't many choices for 26350. I buy most of my batteries in general from mtnelectronics as you linked as they are a trustworthy seller. I haven't used the 26350 in any lasers but I use them for flashlights with no issues so They should be fine for some lasers.

There are Imalent 26350 batteries available now also that are probably a better choice for higher drain.

That's why I was asking if 2 will fit in the s11 as they're 2000mAh vs 700 mAh for the 18350.

Yup, they are not listed with a crazy mAh rating which is always a good sign.
2000 mAh seems legit but not sure of the I think 6A discharge rate? is that bad?

Hi,
I just ordered 2 of them to try out, The 18350' are 18mm in diameter X 350mm in length . So the 26350's should fit fine in the S11 .
1X26650 or 2x26350's . I think I might build a 520nm in the S11 with a copper sink, have some 520nm diodes coming rated for 500 to 700 mW's

Yes also found these that look good. Could use 3 in series for bigger builds and keep the host shorter.
I had seen the plain 26350 before on ebay but because there was only the one brand I didn't follow up but these appear to be high drain and could be useful.
Red, I just purchased 2 from a place here in the states in Vancouver , they should be great in an M11 host for a higher power 520 copper sink.

Looking at those imalent wrapped cells at the bottom it says 26 x 39mm which could mean it has a protection board, will find out.

Great thanks didn't see that let me know, I just checked why they are 39mm might be because of the internal protection board inside the battery. Thats the only thing I can think of. even if they are a tat longer I can still use a shorter spring the make up the space.
So that shouldn't be an issue hopefully.

It really depends on what you're using it for. If you're using it for vaping it will probably blow up. If you're using it for a laser or flashlight drawing less than 4A it's fine.
