    Battery for ds-500?

    I was thinking of using a lupine battery as I like the indicator and drop protection. But is there a better option that won't cost a fortune and would be just as safe?

    FYI this is a duplicate thread.

    But for the sake of being helpful, there is A TON of options. ALL these battery packs have protection. Doesn't matter if it Lupine, gloworm, magicshine, Xeccon and so on. They ALL have protection circuits.

    Are you talking about Designshine's DS-500? The Lupine battery is the only one with low battery indicator but the DS-500 will also indicate what level of electricity is left.

    Gloworm batteries and I believe a couple others have the "fuel gauge" as well. It's not limited to Lupine only.

    Oops, stand corrected. I never looked that closely at the Gloworm batteries.

    not really, their all "properly regulated". All thats needed is protection against over charge and over discharge. And quality cells arent cheap. But welcome to the cycling industry. You get charged a ton for everything if you want decent quality. And properly working balancing systems that small cost a premium regardless. No cheap way around that to truly have balancing thats inside a battery pack.

    But all other 18650 stuff you buy, flashlights or whatever, they have nothing more than protection circuits. That's all that's needed and except loose cells (you have the option of protected or not) they all come with protection circuits.
