I was trying to answer the question you asked. You haven't told us anything about size or shape requirements or what you are trying to do.
NiCads - you were lucky - we used to dream of owning NiCads .....If you ever had to put up with the short life-span of NiCads...they were really a rip off.

AFAIK 18650 cells reuire just the same protection asany LiPO. As with other packages some 18650 have protection built in and some don't and you definitely need protection circuits.KanoMaster22 wrote: ↑Fri Jan 19, 2018 1:22 pmThanks for the replies. The 18650 batteries look like good value and capacity. Also, the lipo batteries are good value and capacity as well. However, I heard connecting lipo batteries in parallel is dangerous. I will probably opt for the 18650 batteries as they can easily be bought and need less protection.
