    PAPSX batteries

    I just got my PAPSX number 168

    I'm going to use this for my AC9 genny
    as I use ceramic wicks & don't experience any shorting problems
    would it be "SAFE" to order some Panasonic NCR18650B 3400mAh with a nipple top added but NO protection circuit ?
    as my Panasonic protected NCR18650B 3400mAh are too long for the PAPSX & it won't screw together flush

    I'm currently using AW 18650 2000mAh IMR batteries in the PAPSX but would prefer my usual 3400mAh longevity
    Now I know that the IMR have "safe" chemistry & the NCR18650B don't
    but there shouldn't be any shorting problems with the ceramic wicks & I'll test the setup prior on my provari

    By the way the AC9 looks great on top of the PAPSX & fits in my pocket better
    Now I have to experiment & lower my ohms as I used 1.1-1.2Ohms on the provari
    Might try for a .8-.9Ohm micro-coil setup

    I'd be more concerned about it actually fitting in the tube, you'll need to compare the inner diameter of the X with another standard tube. I have a couple and it doesn't fit most of my 22mm tubes as it is wider than standard 18650's.

    just done a bit of researching -

    AW 18650 2000mAh IMR - 65mm long ( has plenty of spare room )
    Panasonic protected NCR18650B 3400mAh - 68.8mm ( too long )
    Panasonic NON protected NCR18650B 3400mAh - 67.2mm ( mmmm... might have to order one from supersports600 to try )

    The width is perfect actually, fits nice & snug
    have tried a protected NCR18650B in the PAPSX, works perfectly but I don't like the gap in the tube

    At least with the provari I can just compress the bottom spring more than normal to get it flush
    I knew before ordering the PAPSX I would probally have problems getting my NCR18650B to fit
    But I was surprised how close it came to fitting perfectly
    now the non-protected are 1.6mm shorter ...mmmm ....

    I'm still looking for the answer of my question though
    I'm not going to blow myself up using this setup ?

    I meant diameter not length and no you won't kill yourself unless you go super low ohms . The blazars are wider than a normal 18650 and the tubes need a wider inner diameter

    As for Provari, use unprotected battery is ok as Provari comes with safety cut off but I don't know if Provari supports 1.3 ohm and below though.

    I know it will read down to .9, and think I had a 1.1 ohm firing on mine at one stage
