    As requested Moochs battery video and table links.

    We will post the videos and current tables as he releases them. This thread will be kept locked so people asking in the forum can be directed to one place free from discussion (you can always use new threads for that).

    The videos are a new series Mooch is running continuing on his journey adding helpful and important information for the vaping community.

    We will list out the contents of each video so you can find what you need.

    Quote from Mooch (no table available for now)

    “Oct 16, 2018: The 26650 ratings table has been removed. It has not been updated in months and I don’t know which might be a different cell from the ones I tested.

    I hope to test/retest several 26650’s before the end of 2018 but right now I don’t have any 26650’s I can recommend”

    Minding you mAh’s Episode 12 - Is the Wotofo Recurve box mod limited to 80W?



    My note: bit of a strange detour from the series however to tie this back into batteries just shows even with protections built in how much potential current drain you can get from a single battery, always build safely and keep in mind Moochs battery testing tables

    Minding your mAh’s Episode 16 - Introducing new battery ratings tables, it’s time for these companies to step up to the plate



    My note: you’ll notice some significant changes to the way Mooch presents rating in his tables, no longer will all non OEM cells tested prior to Jan remain listed, in addition he will be only be listing those companies who provide basic safety data sheets (or calling out those who don’t!)

    This is an important move for the community, if you don’t see a cell you’re looking to buy listed chances are it’s safety performance is “unknown” proceed with caution!

    Minding your mAh’s Episode 18 - do higher battery current ratings = better performance?



    My note: this vid covers selecting batteries by internal resistance rating (among other things) - I would like to see Mooch cover how recharge cycles affect internal resistance, while one cell might start with a lower internal resistance, but could it degrade faster than the other one it’s being compared with over time?

    My notes: excellent vid, even for experienced vapers out there, explains best why he chose to remove the pulse ratings last year from his tables

    Minding your mAh’s Episode 21 - What is battery sag?



    My notes: mooch mentions not using cold batteries right at the end, in other vids he mentions over heating them is also bad, what he is referring to here is room temp being optimal for starting out, if it’s really cold hold the batteries in your hand for a bit before using the mod for the first time.
