Our new generation Panasonic protected 18650 batteries are shorter and are now compatible with all our 18650 battery holder and Nitecore and Xtar branded charges.
Protected 3.7v 3100mah 18650 Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) cylindrical battery (NCR18650A). Li-Ion batteries are much lighter than NiMh batteries. Carrying a higher voltage and offering better discharge curve.
This battery has in built voltage cut-off protection circuitry (PCM). The inbuilt circuitry stops overcharging or over discharging of the battery, eliminating possible safety and battery damage risk. The addition of the protection chip adds to the length of the original raw 18650 cell.
Panasonic are regarded as the most reliable 18650 battery brand. Used by most major laptop manufacturers for their battery packs. This battery is suitable for general portable electronic applications.
