The flyer I am seeing just shows the regular price, but does not indicate the sale price anywhere.

Highly recommend an led that runs on 18650 batteries LiOn batteries. 1 battery = 4 AA's. my headlamp will last for days without charging and is outrageously bright.

but you need special batteries, special charger and they do pose a certain fire risk...

My headlamp can charge the batteries in the unit with a cable.

Fire risk is similar to any other batteries (although much more damaging) don't store loose in your pocket, don't over charge them in the hot sun and you will be fine.

As with most li on batteries they will deliver full power until dead and won't start slowly dwindling until dead like ni cad batteries tend to.

My battery charger can handle 18650's as well.

not really

They can catch on fire when discharged too much / overcharged. To prevent this there is a built in electronic circuit that stops the battery when being discharged too much. ie: protected 18650. There are also unprotected 18650 on the market which are really just scary. Then you are relying on electronics in the flashlight to stop the battery from igniting And the manufacturer of the flashlight is in China and competes on price against other Chinese companies. So guess how much they engineer for safety

There is a reason they are not allowed to be shipped by air and why they aren't really sold by regular stores. Risk is definitely there. They do perform great though.

Not really???? Not Really!!!!
There are two different kind of 18650-s. One has a PCB ( protective circuit board) that circuit will protect the battery from overcharging, short circuit, overload). The other type (without the PCB) is a good source to build battery packs (including proper PCB-s or BMS!) for higher voltage and higher capacity (Ah).
I built several battery packs (3s3p, 4s3p up to 4s15p ranging from 10.5 Ah to 50Ah to power sonar on the ice to drive trolling motor. they no more danger if handled properly than the lithium batteries in you laptop, your power tools etc.
There are well known manufacturers of those batteries, like Panasonic, LG, etc.
You have to get the proper chargers for those batteries.
Just think about it. Electric cars, laptops, cell phones, tablets, power tools and who knows what is running safely on those batteries............if they handled properly.
Plus there are higher capacity batteries like 26850, LI-PO or LI-ion battery packs for marine, solar power, the latest motor homes etc.

[QUOTE=

I had a Ni-Cad battery pack (factory made) explode half an hour after fully charged and off the charger, but I never had problem in the last 9-10 years years with lithium batteries. I had (china made) battery failing (losing power) in my underwater camera, but never in my power tools, flashlights, headlights or my battery packs built from reliable sources.
Currently I own about 80 pieces different types of LI batteries
