Are replacement batteries available for purchase through HexBright?
Where can I get replacement batteries? Thx
Is this a good question?
It wouldn't surprise me if the HexBright-branded batteries would be available for sale here eventually, but if you're looking to shop for batteries right now (say you want to have a spare just in case), you can get the recommended battery type at several stores and online just about anywhere.
The type of battery you should be looking for is called a 'protected 18650' - that's an 18650 battery with a small protection circuit included in the battery casing that prevents overcharging and the like.
( note: it's a Li-Ion type battery - not a LiFePO! )
If you will be shopping around, please keep in mind that certain sellers - e.g. at auction sites - will try to sell you batteries that might be labeled "4000mAh" but really have a capacity of, say, 1800mAh. Right now a reasonable capacity for a decent price is at about 2800mAh. There are higher capacity one from reputable sources but you tend to have to pay disproportionally extra.
i found another forum talking about this very issue. it's a flashlight forum
more research led me to find out that not all 18650 batteries are the same. i found a good page with all the differences in size. i couldn't find an official document on the batteries specs. make sure to measure the battery before you buy a replacement.
