Fixed my flashlights! I've owned Inova lights for a number of years now, and they take a tremendous beating. Had two go bad (conking out when they should have been fully charged, or not charging at all). Now, Inova has great customer service, but now they've been around awhile, parts are easily accessible. Figured my problem was either a battery or a switch. For the price, I took a chance on it being battery related. Quick delivery, and a charge later, I have two fully functioning T4's. Yay!
This is a great battery, but it is not, strictly speaking, a plain old 18650 battery. Searching on Amazon for "18650 battery" will return this battery in the results. The description states that this 18650 battery is a replacement for several Inova models Of torches and while this is definitely true, what this really means that it is ONLY compatible with those models. If you read more carefully,you will see that the description says this battery has a 18650 core.....the operative word here is "core". But it is not a standard 18650 battery to be used in any flashlight which takes a 18650 type battery. It wouldn't even fit in my Fenix torch......much wider girth than a standard 18650 battery. Figuring that it would be more of a hassle to try to return it then it would to experiment, I decided to remove the outer shell of the battery. What I found underneath the thick layers of plastic was a computer circuit of some type attached via ribbon cable, presumably an IC...
Yes, I rate this battery at a 5, it puts out good light so far just like the original one. Now I just hope it last as long as the original one which was almost 7 years. I received this little flash light from my son for Christmas in 2007. It's a rechargeable flashlight and performs very well.
