    That price is in British pounds. It equals $9.14 USD. You can get AW 18490, 1100 mAh at RTD Vapes for $8.87. At 15C they are good for 16.5A.

    I know which ones I would buy

    Does anyone know of any reliable tests performed on these batteries to confirm their stated amp limit? Battery makers are notorious for false claims on batteries, so tests performed by a trusted/experienced tester would be nice. I did a quick search on Google but nothing jumped right out at me. Thought someone might have this info handy.

    I bought a couple of these a week or so ago from Efest Purple 15amp 18500 - 1000mah - 101 Vape for 2 for $7.49ea. I also bought 2 18350 purple Efest for $6.99 ea. and boxes for both at .99 ea. with $1.99 shipping on it all. Very fast delivery also in the USA only though I would guess. I've been very happy with the purple efest batteries so far including the 18650 over others I've tried.
