Re: Review - Digitech AR-1780 Multi-band Radio Receiver - battery choice

Perhaps the most knowledgeable folks regarding cylindrical Li-Ion batteries, and 18650's in particular (because of their enduring popularity starting as components of computer battery packs) are the flashlight enthusiasts. To paraphrase the common wisdom:

  • Stick to brand names (Panasonic, LG, Samsung, Nitecore, KeepPower, Sony, Fenix, Aspire, Efest, etc)
  • Don't buy off eBay or Amazon as there are too many fakes
  • Don't buy¬†any battery or charger having "Fire" in its brand name
