Applause Smilie I haven't gotten mine yet but I figured they were worth trying out for the price compared to the Thorfires I own

The discount is 5.85. It's actually 7.14 after the coupon. Still not bad.

this seems like another no name !@#$ battery that is not even worth getting them free
from the other items with the LingsFire name everything is generic cheapo china junk
and besides i thought all names with FIRE in them are bad

these are probably fake read this [instructables.com]

Except for a couple exceptions, like Trustfire, I wouldn't bother with any of the *fire brands for batteries and like. They're probably fine for cheap flashlights, but look for something better for your batteries.

No experience with them, so until I hear otherwise, I'd consider them a risk. Trustfire I've heard elsewhere use quality cells that have been re-wrapped, and I can confirm that from a set I bought (Sanyo, IIRC, but it varries). That being said, as soon as one brand starts getting a good reputation, others tend to jump on right away and start selling fakes, so you never can really tell.

EDIT: Just did a little searching and yes, there are Trustfire fakes out there too, unsurprisingly.

Thanks for the info. I guess it's hit or miss then. I'll at least be able to test these out and compare them to my Thorfire once I receive them.
