    High capacity 18350s - Supplier

    Seems we have a bunch of things that gobble up 18350s. The charged battery box is down to only 2 spares when everything is full. Buzgzme.

    Anyone know of, or have a credible supplier of 18350s with more than (safely) 800mAh? Ideally, over 1000mAh.

    Note: I have already checked THE reference for batteries; SS600's ebay site.

    It is form and capacity factors... If you can't go longer like 18500 or 18650 then you have to go wider like 26350 to get more capacity.
    Nothing in 18350 size is more than or equal to 1000Mah currently as far as I know.

    Why don't you make them for us then MrGruffy?

    After the explosion and subsequent fire here recently, I'm sticking with safe and credible as key words for batteries.

    you can find 18350 1200 mah protected trustfires stocked by quite a few people like Trustfire Protected 18350 1200mah 3.7v Battery 2pk [18350] - 7.49 : E-Cigz London, Discount Electronic Cigarette & cheap E-liquid suppliers, Atomizers, Cartomizers, Batteries, GGTS, Ecigs E-Cigs E Cigs E Cigz but i just never believe the mah rating of lots of batts, they never seem to last any longer, and always stick to the AW's or other reputable batts that i can trust, and know will fit in my mods, as some of the cheaper chinese batts are too wide or long to fit as well

    Exactly why I asked here. I've seen outrageous claims for capacity but unless someone here has used it and verified claims, or SS600 recommends them...pffft.

    assuming you are not stacking, then still you are wanting peaks of maybe 12W or so if you are toying with larger gauge kanthals. so drawing currents of perhaps 4C.
    why not move up to the inherently safer 18650 format.
    charge rate is based on size, it takes no longer to charge an 18650 than an 18350.
    I no longer consider anything under 2500mAh as a vaping option.
    In order of useful: Provari V2 and V1, vamo, eGo twist, Katana v3, Hex, Orion v2, LavaTube, eGo x 6, VMAX, 510N, Tick V2, Tick V1, noEgo 18650, noEgo 14650 , Indulgence x 2, 905 6v mod, KR808D

    Quick count of 18xxx devices;

    7 x 1 x 18350, one chubby lil battery
    5 x 2 x 18350, ie, stacked.
    12 x 1 x 18650, standard shape

    Others
    5 x 1 x 14500, Reo mini and bastard vapes
    1 x 1 x 17670, Apex Alpha thingy

    Packaged eGo things about like roaches after dark

    Obscure battery sizes
    Not sayin.

    As for power, only the Stupid Bastard Vape uses more than 10W, occasionally I'll wind a genny up higher depending on the juice and time of day, state of tongue etc.
    Two very different scenarios for me. At work, where portability and stealth is more important than longevity. I can/do carry at least 5 spares with during the weekday. At home where flavour and vape rules, don't care about shape or size here.

    One urge for the higher capacity 18350s is the form factor I can create is desirable. My primary out n about form factor is 14500, when married to a sidemounted 1Clear 16 it fits in my hand and pocket without being obtrusive at all.

    Edit: Hit post a bit early, probably would have turned ranty otherwise and there's no call for that.

    I don't know a lot about electronics batteries etc but from real experience I have found a big difference between AWs and efest

    The efests aren't lasting as long as the AWs and aren't holding their charge.

    I have 4 efest that are only 2 months old and fully charged they are only reading 3.8/3.9 and AWs that a year old are still holding 4.1/4.2.

    I will be tossing all the efests next week when a new lot of AWs come.

    Wow, huge difference.
    My urge is really only for a minor improvement in my carry around vape in the suit. Larger battery capacity would let have just 3 devices instead of the usual number I carry, yanno, I to vape, 1 for spare, 1 justcoz. I'd like to get down to only 3. Not a big deal, I always have more in the brief case.
