If you haven't been following what's new in batteries, here's one I hope to try soon. It's Samsung's INR21700-48G Li-ion battery intended, I believe, for the vaping crowd. Maybe also to compete with the Tesla batteries produced at their factory in Nevada.

It has an incredible 4,800mAh capacity compared to the 18650's I'm using now with a 3,400mAh capacity, which at the time I also thought was incredible. The battery is rated at 9.6A max. continuous, 4.8A max. for optimum cycle life.

If these more powerful types become more common, it suggests higher wattage charging systems will be more desirable to more closely match the higher C ratings of these batteries. Time will tell.
