Is a unit measure for visible light emitted by a light source. In general, the higher the lumens, the brighter the light.

Common Battery Types

AA : Standard Double AA battery (See 14500 for rechargeable option.)

14500: A Li-ion Rechargeable battery with similar dimension to a standard AA battery. Please note that voltage differs between a standard AA and a 14500 rechargeable; check your flashlight specifications before using this battery to ensure it is compatible.

CR123A: The most common lithium battery used in modern flashlights, cameras and other high-power technology, standard SUREFIRE batteries are disposable. Usually 3V, these batteries allow for more power, brightness and battery life when comparing to a AA or AAA flashlight. There are single rechargeable options for these batteries including the 16340 and 18350 (check your flashlight specifications before trying a rechargeable as the voltage is higher and size varies from the standard disposable CR123A battery.) 

18650: A rechargeable battery most commonly used to replace 2 x CR123A batteries in select flashlights. Below are a few things to be aware of when searching for the right rechargeable battery.
   - mAh (milliampere-hour) measure the capacity of a battery, higher mAh 18650s will generally hold a longer charge and extend the life of a battery charge. It can vary from 2200mAh to 3600mAh. Check your flashlight specs before trying this battery type.
   - Flat top vs Button Top: 18650 batteries with a flat top will not work in all flashlights. Check your flashlight specs for further information.
   - All FENIX Flashlights will accept both flat and button top batteries. Some NITECORE Flashlights will only accept button top. SUREFIRE Flashlights will NOT accept 18650 batteries and most FOURSEVENS Flashlight only take 1760 rechargeable batteries (see 1760 section).
    - DO NOT use 2 x rechargeable CR123A in lieu of one 18650. The voltage is too high and may damage your light.

17650: A slimmer rechargeable battery which replaces 2 x CR123A batteries in select lights. Many Foursevens lights will accept this slimmer battery due to the cartridge size. See your light specs for further details.

----- Always do you research when buying batteries. Read your flashlight specs carefully to ensure the battery is compatible with your light. Most brands will recommend that you use their own branded batteries.-----
