For maximum performance, pair the sanyo 2050 with a high-quality 18650 battery. We recommend the Sanyo 20700 30A NCR20700A, which offers a safe, reliable and long-lasting power source for your high-drain devices. These batteries are designed with overcharge and over-discharge protection for safe use in any environment. They also have excellent stability across a range of temperatures, making them the perfect choice for outdoor use and extreme conditions.
