Wearable Pixels using ESPixel Stick, what have you done?

I just found out to stay away from cheap Chinese 18650 cells as the capacity ratings are false.  I have a bunch labeled as 4000mAH but when tested, they only produce 1020mAH.

But the good thing is, 1020mAH with 50 pixels randomly lit continuously will last 3.5hrs (my lightshow is only 2.5hrs).

I was planning on having a few different enclosures that contained two 18650 cells in parallel for additional runtime.  But I could easily purchase single cells with 2000mAH ratings.
