Two of the breakthrough technologies of the past decade are the advent of speciality torches with high-output LED light sources for use in applications like search and rescue, military operations and diving, and electronic cigarettes. Devices of both types can place a high demand on the batteries used to power them. Although many of these devices are shipped with single-use batteries, users can save themselves pounds and help lower environmental impact by using rechargeable batteries. These high-capacity Li-ion rechargeable cells are manufactured by Sanyo and offered by Xtar for use in their high-tech torches. They offer an ideal alternative to wasteful, disposable batteries. This economical 2-pack is stocked right here in the UK, so you don't have to wait for weeks to receive them.
These cells incorporate all the safeguards necessary to overcome the potential drawbacks of lithium-based batteries. Internal circuitry provides protection from over-discharging or overcharging, both of which can permanently damage Li-ion cells. This and the quality of the base cell mean these batteries will deliver reliable power through many more charging cycles than the competition. They're also protected against dangerous overheating in case of a short-circuit condition, which can lead to rupture and possible fire with inferior batteries.
If you're using any of the technologically advanced torches like those offered by Fenix and Xtar, or "smoking" electronic cigarettes, it makes sense to use a power source that's designed for them, to maximize their performance. Considering that it also helps you do your part to protect the planet and saves you money, shouldn't you be using these high-quality rechargeable batteries? Order a set today, and don't forget that you'll need a Li-ion charger, so be sure to check out our Xtar brand chargers.
