    The ones in the picture are the ones IMR had a sale on for a $1.99 a pop... thus far in my not so professional opinion are Molicel P26A's... but IMR wasn't able to sell them since Liion Wholesale is the only reseller of "Authentic" Molicel's in the USA... so they called them OEM P26As lol

    Thus far they meet the eye test... and I am checking capacity atm.

    AS for being a good battery... I believe them to be just that...but you can't go wrong with VTC5As... or any higher end draining capable battery with 2500+mAh


    I would really like some Samsung 20s and 24s... ya know for science ;)

    Took a long time to organise it all, some money in them flavours , from TFA ,Cap, TPA, FW, INW, FA, and a couple from cupcake worlds for some jammy mixes.
    I was always more of chasing Flavour mixes rather than hardware,
    Now im stocked up and can actually get at it easily.
    Its g
    Back to hardware till i find the last few bits,

    I decided to try out this C4 that's been here for a few days. I put the ugliest build in it with some wire I've never tried (Wotofo Clapton 26ga+38ga). The wire is pretty thin and springy so I just kind of spaced it.

    This RDA is for real. Way more flavor and better draw than the Recurve. It was simple and quick to set up. I used the little cut out for my jig and tryed to kind of center it on the airflow slots. But thats it. This wire is new to me but it's kicking some massive flavor my way. I guess I've never had an RDA work this well on the first try. It's just awesome. Thanks @nadalama for recommending this. I think I love it.

    Picture of said ugly coil-

    I dont know how many wraps I did, but my coil above is a parallel. 3 full wraps (parallel)? Anyways, it's a .2Ω build. I wanted to see how it'd hit on one of my mech(like) squonkers. It works really well. I've tried all sorts of builds in different RDAs and didn't quite like how they did. I did a lot of things and none of my other coil setups worked as well as this. So its not only a good RDA, I found a build that works on them types of devices. Pretty cool :shades:.

    Well Discharged to 2.9v ...my charger says 2500-2543mAh with an average just shy of 2510 total mAh.

    The data sheet... located here...https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0...R18650P26A-01-1.2_WM.pdf?14928966757459309626

    2600mAh average @ 2.5v discharge
    2500mAh minimum @2.5v discharge

    to late to do the math of what .4v is of 2510 ;)

    safe to say these are legit without doing a 10/20/30/40 amp load discharge test...

    Do you have any pre-made Clapton wire? I know, I know, I'm like a broken record lately, but hey, I'm a relative newbie. I made a cool discovery (of what I think is someone's brilliance - not mine), and I'm still excited about it!

    The coil I put in my C4 is a staged heating coil. I had never heard of it, but that doesn't surprise me. I'll explain, so please don't get insulted if you already know what this is.

    What I used is Geekvape MTL Clapton wire, 28x2/38 n80, plus Lightning Vapes 24ga n80. Cut a piece of each the same length for a four- or five-wrap, 3.5mm coil. Wrap them in parallel, just like you would if it were two strands of 24ga. When you install the coil make sure the grub screw holds both pieces of wire securely.

    This is a kick-ass coil. Durable and very responsive. Heats up quicker than you'd think, because of the conductivity of the round wire. Simple and inexpensive to make.

    Small update on the OEM P26As vs "Molicel" P26As.

    I took a pair of brand new ones and ran them in the charger (Authentic) and they ended up within 20mAh of the OEM P26As...

    Wish I had a load tester, but in this case, I am going to have to say... Looks like a duck...Quacked like a duck (capacity)...

    Imr are so reputable that I'd trust them. Very few vendors that I would say that. But imr batts have a proven track record longer than my 5.5 years vaping

    I've ordered from them plenty of times and always received the items I paid for... this was more for posterity of those that may be in doubt.

    I don't want to add conspiracy to anything, but a certain company is a patron to a certain guru... and another said company is working with said guru for vape specific batteries, thus why said guru says "Authorized" vendor of said batteries are only to be considered safe... which is true... somewhat.

    Only way to debunk the legitimacy of said OEM P26As is to have them discharged tested the same way said Guru does, but with my above conspiracy thought, that will never happen and be published ;)

    Unless HJK does it, which was hinted at back in January... still can't locate said comparison test.

    will likely put these two up for sale in the next 2 days

    just want to sell one, keep one for vapergeddon stash

    RRP $450 usd, will list them around $100 usd OBO

    *bottle is 20.5 mm wide, won't fit a standard squonk bottle, you'll need 10ml auth sunbox (20usd) or to DIY from a needletip bottle)

    No. That one side isn't drilled out all the way. They drilled it out too shallow. Makes me wonder the process these thing go through. Mine seems to have not been looked at or inspected at in the factory.

    If I mail it to you, do you think you can drill it out perfectly so my airflow is smooth? Lol I'm just kidding. It really sucks because they sold out of them so I cant even get a replacement.

    Lol I doubt I have to tools. I'm sure someone here does though. Depends on if you just want a refund or a refurb.

    Wow, I don't think I've ever seen an atty that was completely un-drilled like that. o_O


    OTOH, here's my Ghoul RDA I got for $8:

    IMG_5323.jpg IMG_5329.jpg IMG_5327.jpg IMG_0264.JPG

    Why they included a knurled drip tip, I have no idea...my lips ain't touchin' that.

    Did someone break in and steal all your squonkers? Otherwise whatever has possessed you? :)

    Put a different coil on my Flave (clone) RTA tonight. Have to say, it vapes a lot better now. It had been spitting and popping, just driving me crazy. Put it on the Vapor Storm Raptor that came yesterday. Makes a nice combo.

    The Raptor, to have cost something like $17, is a nice box. The magnets could be a little more substantial, but there's a certain way to hold the doors as you put them on (the edge of the door seems to "tuck in" under a narrow lip that goes around the opening on the box) that seems to make them more stable.
