eBay flashlights are whatever but be careful with those batteries!

Very dangerous

They are relabeled time bombs man
It's not really a cheap battery thing, with lithium polymer batteries, the higher performance they are and the more fully charged they are, the more violently they will burn. The important part is to make sure you have the right electronics to make sure they aren't over charged or over discharged.

With some lithium batteries, you can literally attach them to a flashlight, turn it on, and without the electronic protection, the battery will expand and burst into flames. Same when you're charging.
