    Question Regulated vs Unregulated Batteries?

    Quick question, as I couldn't find it under a search of the forum.

    What is the difference between an unregulated battery vs a regulated one.

    I've just purchased 2 x KGO 1300Mah MEGA EGO Battery from vapeking and it says 'Unregulated Output so will blow regular EGO batteries away'

    Currently I only have a Vision Spinner 1300mah, which has voltage adjustment controls, but this one doesn't
    and I believe an unregulated battery has something to do with an altering voltage, but have no idea how what that means?

    Any feedback really appreciated in advance!

    1.7 - 1.9 Ω - 3.0 - 3.4 V
    2.1 - 2.3 Ω - 3.5 - 3.8 V
    2.4 - 2.6 Ω - 3.9 - 4.2 V
    2.6 - 3.0 Ω - 4.3 - 4.7 V

    Regulated in terms of eGo type batteries usually means they will out put 3.3V constantly .
    A lithium ion or polymer cell has a usable voltage range from 3.2 to 4.2 volts ( 4.2 volts being fresh off the charger , 3.2 V being depleted and needing to be recharged )

    So if a battery is UNREGULATED , it will put out 4.2V fresh off the charger , and decrease over vaping .

    the Regulated one provides a more stable vaping platform, but unregulated appears to "hit " harder until it wears down a bit .

    I am more a fan of the eGo Twists or vision spinners , as they are regulated .. BUT have the ability for the user to set the voltage anywhere between 3.2 V and 4.8 V
    (it achieves the higher voltage by using a buck/boost circuit built in )
