    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.
