    Where do you buy your battery shrink wraps for 18650 batteries from?
    I bought a 50 pack of translucent blue ones from Fasttech and they are too tight- I can't get the batteries in it all the way. I squish the tubes open, finally found two of them that fit.
    Saving a few bucks is not worth the hour of aggravation- anyone use a brand that will slip onto the battery easily?
    Called 2 local vape shops and neither had battery wraps for sale- What???????
    One of the most important products for safety when vaping and neither had wraps for sale! Terrible!

    I have a small cart at FT and just added some different ones- some 31mm ones instead of the 30mm I have now, maybe they will be looser?
    I was able to find 2 wraps to finally fit the 2 bare batteries after about an hour- so frustrating!
    Thanks for the offer, but I am OK for now.

    I got a roll of it for my 18650, I have a pre cut one i will use to measure until i learn the exact size i need. Then I will set something up and cut the roll all up to size. For the 21700 I got some pre cut. Not sure how either work, the big ones I just got to have on hand and forgot about the roll until it showed up in the mail today. Now don't ask where I will have the time to cut a roll of battery wraps. LOL

    Same here, I got fasttech ones and they fit fine. Bought me some Captain America, Deadpool, blue and green ones. Also got some 20700 ones and they fit both my 20700 and 21700 batteries.

    Thanks everyone-
    I have more wraps to try from Fasttech in my cart along with some insulators.
    I wonder if being in a hot mailbox shrank the shrink wrap or just a bad lot?

    I'm wondering the same, I also liked Ray's idea of having a roll of the wraps verses the pre cut, and being able to cut off the roll what I need using one as a template.

    You can go to any electrical supply business/hardware store and buy rolls of heat shrink.

    Got some new wraps and insulators from FT- hope they fit and I can find some time to wrap!
