Fenix 21700 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery – 5000 mAh
The Fenix ARB-L21-5000 is a 21700 (21mm X 70mm) rechargeable Li-ion battery. For comparison, a typical 18650 battery is 18mm X 65mm. This new size lithium ion is a replacement for flashlights that can accept the larger battery such as the Fenix PD36R. With its 3.6 volts of power and 5000mAh capacity make it the perfect companion for high-drain flashlights, providing sufficient power and extra-long runtimes. Fitted with multiple protection systems, the button-top Fenix ARB-L21-5000 has 3 sets of overheat protection to ensure that the battery remains at a sustainable temperature. There are protection circuits embedded into the anode for overcharge, over-discharge, and short circuit protection as well. The steel shell riveting encasing the battery decreases any potential risk of the cell short-circuiting due to impacts, drops, or collisions combined with the pressure relief vents which will expel generated gas from a potential short-circuit to eliminate hazardous conditions within the battery.
