You would be doing yourself an enormous favour if you search YouTube for videos on cheap batteries, that way you’ll understand why it’s worth spending a few extra pounds. I wish I had, then I wouldn’t have a collection of cheap Chinese ones in my cupboard. They’re either packed with cells salvaged from old laptops or the old ‘single-cell-and-a-bolt’ trick but learn from my mistake and avoid the cheap ones with claims of being 10,000mAh.

Before I learned my lesson I was using 2-3 batteries a night in my 007. Now with the decent batteries I bought from Torchy a single battery last 2-3 nights. Likewise my 008.

He sells chargers too.

Ecolux batteries are pretty good also. I use them in my Pard and torches. Buy a decent charger, the cheapies have a reputation for going on fire. I had one, it was plain to see after a while the wire was fraying joining the unit. I junked it.

I find the batteries that come with the PARD are rubbish - fully charged them and they are half drained almost immediately.

Definately worth upgrading

Give Clive ward a call, I got a nice double charger That uses a normal iPhone charger plug or into a charger socket from him for flat top batteries

Avoid any battery with "fire" in it's name (e.eg Ultrafire) or GTL
Avoid any battery which claims a capacity of more than 3600mah - such batteries simply don't exist
Genuine Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, LG, Ampsplus, Vapcell with capacities up to 3500mah are all good
Batteries rated for 5 amps are fine. Vaping batteries (which produce much higher currents) can be used, but are a bit of a waste of money
Note that, to work in a PARD 007 the battery must be flat top and unprotected. Nipple top and/or protected batteries will simply not fit into the PARD battery holder
For a charger, I'd recommend Nitecore or Xtar
Good and trustworthy sellers are Ecolux shop, Torchy the battery boy and Fogstar
Most E Bay sellers of 18650 do NOT sell genuine batteries

Nitecore 4 I use but my batteries come from old laptop batteries. Usually when a laptop battery fails its only 1cell gone down.
Inside you get 5 or 6 18650 wired together so a quick separate and plug them in to the nightcore.
It,l analyse them and tell u which is duff .
Quality batteries that last years 👌

You told me this and it's proven true. I also discovered that among my collection the heavier the battery the better it performs (not surprisingly all the 'xxxxfire' batteries are lightweights).

Top tip, get a plastic box in which to keep your spare battery. Don't put it in your pocket with your car keys (ask me how I know 🙄).
