    I've never used a mechanical mod, nor do I exactly own one.
    What happened is the battery in my ijust 2 died, and while waiting for a new one to arrive in the mail, I put together a temporary mech mod. I have a broken ipv4 that someone gave me. The chip was fried, so today I removed it and rewired it so that a single Samsung 18650 battery is connected to the 510 connection with a switch. It works well, but I want to be sure I'm being safe since I can't find any definitive info on the battery. I'm currently vaping at 0.5 ohms, and I don't plan to go any lower. I just want to make sure this battery can handle 0.5 (I'm sure it can) since I've never gone mech before.

    Wtf??? Lol. You can hit the battery with .5 no worries. If you are able to rewire ipv4, you can build your own unregulated box mod. Way better then ijust 2. It doesn't go bad and if it does you can fix it yourself.

    @rj9923, I would kill to have the talent with electronics that you seem to have. @anen is correct, you could very well build something of your own, as well as keep it maintained, so I think it would be a very good idea if you studied up a bit on how these things work, especially with bullshit regulations on the horizon. Building quality mechs could well be money in the bank for you.

    Which Samsung battery? If a 26F 5amp about .8ohms if 25r about 20amps .2ohms.

    What is the amp rating of your battery? I would go no lower an ohm than that which draws 80% the amp draw rating.
