For replacement batteries, are they 18650? Do I want flat top or button tops?

Hello,

any idea what connector the battery uses? I have a replacement pack but they put the cable on the wrong side of the pack (doesn’t fit backwards either)

The original cells are rated for 3.7v, 2450mAh, and I don't know how many amps but it's probably not that many. The form factor is flat-top 18650. I successfully did this repair using 3 Samsung 35E cells: https://www.18650batterystore.com/produc...

So, is this battery pack compatible? I read it has the connector in the wrong side
