All rated ( and tested by myself as well ) at the highest capacity. They even sell the newer 21 and 20700 type cells. All products shipped from Fla. Fast shipping too. Every order I placed arrived within 4 days ( east coast ). The protected cells they sell use their own protection circuit which then get the "Orbtronic label" regardless of the actual battery manufacturer. Otherwise you get the basic manufacturer's label if buying unprotected cells. Personally, I won't buy li-ion batteries from any other place.
Well, the more I read the more I tend to think that recent power banks offer the best solution. I've seen a couple of models that accept an input of 30W. I'll probably be looking at the smallest high input model available and get 2 of them.

OTOH, if you have suggestions for a fast charger with USB-out capability, let me know. I don't really care about output Amps since most devices could charge all night. It's the input that I want to maximize.
