    Okay so after scouring the interwebs I couldn't find much help. I turned here hoping you guys and straighten this out for me.

    Asmodus Minikin 2
    TF-V12
    T8 0.16 ohm coils

    With the batteries I have, fully charged, 120w is as high as I can go without immediately getting a low battery alert.
    My question is, what batteries do I need to get to push the watts up past 120?

    Thanks guys!

    What batteries do you have? Could be you are too low on ohm.

    Grab some Sony VTC5a batteries that'll do the job 25A CD-R in fact wouldn't ever bother using anything below 20A CDR myself

    Over 20 amps from a 15 amp rated battery from a brand that is questionable..... might be the issue..... your pulling more than the batt has to offer.

    Ah! So it's probably a low amp problem? See no one ever told me this stuff when I got into vaping.lol So should I be looking at 30a batteries? Does that sound right?

    Not really needed unless your really looking to cook the lungs. The discharge rating and capacity are linked the higher the discharge rate the lower the capacity generally speaking depending on the hybrid chemistry manafacturers use

    I suggested VTC5a because it's slap bang in the middle 25CDR 2500mAh it's just a banging battery

    Having said that plenty of awesome 20CDR 3000mAh batteries to choose from take a look at the list Ray posted above will help 30Q, VTC6 are popular choices around here as well

    If you look into the 30CDR range you lose capacity normally around the 1500mAh mark not worth it in my opinion (but this is just me)

    I do not recommend using less than a 20 amp Mooch approved battery in any vaping device.

    In the mean time just build or use wattages that draw less than 15amp....

    Steam-engine.org can help.

    no
    the build does not change the amp draw on a vw mod

    the amp draw is determined by
    wattage setting / battery voltage / efficiency of mod (90% normally)

    so at 120 watts
    he is only pulling 15.87 amps
    but as the battery discharges to low bat cut off the amp draw increase up to about 21 amps

    but say at over 120 watts you are pulling over 16 amps from the batteries form full charge

    the batteries are probably just junk and are the issue

    the mod does not know how many amps are safe for the batteries you have installed or even what batteries are installed

    Yeah, I'm leaning towards the problem being the batteries. I'm pretty sure they're 15amp. So that 30 amps total IF the wrapper can be trusted. I guess I'm gonna get higher amp batteries and make sure they're legit.

    no
    its 15 amps total
    your mod is in series which does not double the amp because it has 2 batteries
    it doubles the voltage available
    it still pulls the same amount of amps form oth batteries at the same time

    Oh snap. I didn't know that. So to really get the most out of my coils I need higher amp batteries and a parallel mod? Is that right?

    How exactly are you charging the batteries?

    An external charger or by plugging the USB into a power source?

    I've just been shoving them into my cigarette lighter in my truck.lol

    Jk I'm using a charger. I'll charge them up all the way and then let them sit for a little bit before I switch out with the drained ones. I've never used the USB to charge them.

    That's why I said wattage.... the build is about vape quality....

    Should have said....Do a build that give a good vape at a wattage that draws less than 15amp... in the mean time..


    The batteries he has are safe below 15 amps draw.. so stay below that till you get better batts.


    Paranoia will destroy ya.

    It is a regulated mod to it should be good for about 25 amps output with 2 15 amp 18650 batteries.
    Depending on the output voltage of course.

    ~60 - 70 watts or so should be no problem and can probably go a bit higher.

    At 120W you're right at the edge of what those batteries can do so if they're a bit worn out that would explain it. I would highly recommend Sony VTC5A for your application, that'll give you the best battery life. Just make sure you get them from a trusted source.
