    Just thought I would share. I have been using this 1000 lumen flashlight on my Motored bike with great results. Its a kd C8 from kai domain but you can get different versions of similar lights that perform the same on Ebay . It runs off of one 18650 rechargeable battery and on medium it provides more than enough light to light the road way at 25 mph . On high its incredible and I have had cars flash me to turn it down . Flashlight plus charger and two batterys cost under 30 dollars shipped and was well worth it. when i get were im goin I undo the flash light and slip it back in my belt holster. I have run it for over an hour on medium so far with plenty of light available. I carry an extra battery in the tool bag just in case.

    What voltage batteries are these 18650s? And how common are they?

    the batteries are about 4.2 volts ea. fully charged and run about 7 dollars a pair. they are pretty much only found on line, I have not seen any locally but if you browse the flashlight forums , they are are common in high lumen flashlights.

    this is the same light I have , from the same supplier, you still have to buy two 18650 battery's and a charger that should run about 16 dollars for both,at least when i bought mine about 6 months ago.

    If you read CandlePowerForums you'll see people arguing about which Chinese manufacturers make the best stuff, how people mix & match components to create better performance, and several members who crank out custom parts in the machine shop and sell them to other members.

    Why does that sound so familiar? :thinking:

    They're 3.6V batteries, not 4.2V. All 3.6V/3.7V LiIon batteries show a fully charged state of about 4.2V.
