I received a dive light from a person who no longer dives that uses 26650 lithium ion batteries.  I am looking for recommendations for brands and sources since I can't find any Eastshine or Samsung which are the brands I use in lights that use 18650 batteries.  Thanks,

I'm in Canada and am looking for those too. So far all I can find are the cheap made in China ones off of Amazon.

I guess 26650 is not popular types of the battery. I’m using one from Bigblue divelights. Idk where the cells are made from. But those are working great for me at the moment.

Go to BatteryJunction for legit and well reviewed batteries.  I've bought a number of odd ball batteries like the 36250 in my iTorch 6+ or DIY replacements for my Sola lights. 


here are plenty of options to be found for 26650 cells, example below:
