    Is there a third party manufacturer that offers an alternative and less expensive battery with the same or better specifications of the Sea Dragon SL9831 battery (7.4 volts, 3400 mAh, 25Wh)?

    This is part of a response to another post, even if there were an alternate source that costs less it would be unlikely that we'd recommend it. Sea Dragon batteries are the highest spec in order to deliver the best performance. Keep in mind direct import lights that use multiple batteries lack the necessary circuitry to assure even and steady discharge over the lights burn time.The inner batteries we use are a high quality Sanyo/Panasonic cell from Japan that get bundled into the pack with the protective circuit. We recommend to measure the batteries based on performance versus money spent, you'll see that this battery is an exceptional value.

    If you find ANYTHING that 'claims' better specs>>>>>it's fake and absolutely will not measure up. You can't do better than Panasonic batteries.
