Thank you so much Scuba-Matt for sharing this .. I passed it along
sony does not make them.For 18650 size batteries, just use the VTC series. These have, and are still well established as the go to batteries for sub ohm builds. The price difference is non-existent with other brands, so until something else is widely proven as a better/safer make, not worth it IMHO.
Yeah, but the irony is: our beloved AW batteries are just re-wrapped cells from the big-name companies too. We're trusting Mr. Wang that they are tested for quality.What we do have to look out for is nefarious vendors getting re-wrap skins and re-wrapping junk, sux
Thank you, that's a BIG heads up for me.. someone told me that they were going to stop making the VT5s.. any truth in that? When it comes to safety, I'm only interested in the best I can get.The problem is Efest they are a battery relabeler every time I hear someone tout these batteries I cringe because you never know what you are getting they do not make batteries they are as bad as others that relabel. I will stick to Japanese batteries...
True dat I was going to bring up AW but I thought someone would yell at me. Then I would cry then squash them with logicYeah, but the irony is: our beloved AW batteries are just re-wrapped cells from the big-name companies too. We're trusting Mr. Wang that they are tested for quality.
Same can also be said of Orbtronic, which is also a "premium" brand that just adds a Japanese PTC fuse to 'em..
The VTC5 is great as is the LG 35A either I have pushed both very hard things I would never have others do heck for most of my 15w vv/be I use Panasonic 18650pd or CGThank you, that's a BIG heads up for me.. someone told me that they were going to stop making the VT5s.. any truth in that? When it comes to safety, I'm only interested in the best I can get.
.I agree thats why the LG 35a is in my ipv v2 50wI'm with you on the LG 35amp batteries. They don't get much love, but I think they are great. I actually like them better than the vtc's. They seem to last longer for me. It's probably the way I vape and not the cell...but whatever works works.
You might have better luck here. Far as I know efest has had a bit of a sketchy track record regarding overrating their batteries. Many people seem to stick with samsung 25r's, lg he 2's, hg2's etc.What problems are people having, I have 2 pairs of efest battery's which I use in my koopor plus n usually run 0.15 ohm coils ??? Should I get some new battery's ??
I've got 1pair 3500mah 20A 3.7v 18650sYou might have better luck here. Far as I know efest has had a bit of a sketchy track record regarding overrating their batteries. Many people seem to stick with samsung 25r's, lg he 2's, hg2's etc.
Have a look here for some decent battery suggestions.
Think I'm gunna buy some new LG batteries or something! Tho both pairs of efests I have last me two days of constant vapeing which is pretty good!! Do you think i would of had any problems by now seen as I've been using these batteries for about 2months+ ??What happens is they vent. Hot gasses and chemicals that are much better on the inside than out. With your kooper, a regulated device, you have some protection for shorts or an incorrectly inserted battery that a mech doesn't. With your kooper the resistance of your coil doesn't control how much stress is put on your battery. The chip makes those demands based on the wattage you have dialed up and the available voltage from the batt(s). As the voltage falls the amp demand rises. Depending on the wattage you demand and how low you go on battery levels and of course your particular set of Efest's you may be just fine. You might however be getting less out of it than you think. The problem with Efest is that you are never certain what's under that wrap. Aside from their mostly wildly inflated specs you have no guarantee that what's under that wrap is even the same as the last set of supposedly identical Efest's you bought. They can - and have - changed them at their whim. Anecdotal statements that I have done such and such and got away with it speaks only to that particular batch.
Once you use them, they are good for 1 year... .. especially a Li-ionI had an efest battery as that is what they sold here and I was told it was good by the seller. I used them for the last 2 years (not the same exact batteries) and on Sunday night I took one off the charger and used it and it blew up. Luckily I was not holding but it shot like a rocket destroying my wall and caught my carpet on fire
