Seems like a bad idea with no reviews and non-brand name like LG or Panasonic.

Someone more knowledgeable care to share regarding these? Googling the name brings up mostly GearBest and Ebay.

Look at the brand, Bestfire, maybe that is what they are intended to do.

Also the manufacturer name is "Mystery" cause they don't want you to know.

Probably okay for flashlights and the low cost DIY solar garden, but don't waste your time vapers. These are not high drain.

Despite the hate this looks like a good deal for 4 18650s and a charger, irrespective of quality.

Brand junkies will disagree, but these are all extremely similar products, made in factories in China. Lax IP laws mean lots of similar products and designs, sometimes even the same just rebranded. You are just avoiding the marketing tax.

all *fire branded lithium ion batteries that i've purchased were crap ... didn't test anywhere near stated mAhr capacity ... but for $7 you hopefully/probably might get what you pay for ... i have enough 18650 that i don't need any more, even if these are worth the $, which i doubt

Never use any battery with Fire in the name. They don't last as long, and there are too many reports of fires/explosions from them. Hopefully the Chinese don't catch on to this tip and remove Fire from all their low quality batteries.

Wrong. Bad advice.

Exactly. In my experience, only genuine Trustfire (back before there were counterfeits everywhere) tested okay, but even those stopped working correctly after a year.

Better to spend $2/cell on some name brand cells around 2000-2600mAH - they will actually test at capacity. It's amazing what you can get today for under $5 from LG, Sanyo,Panasonic, etc - it used to be $15/each for a single, decent low-drain cell, so it made sense for some people to buy _fire batteries. Now you can get 2600-3100mAH 10-20A reputable cells for a great price.

A charger that won't over-charge your cells is also a good idea.
