    What batts are the sub ohm guys using theses days?

    Hi guys. Just wondering what people are using these days. I've been using MNKE's which have been great but they seem to be deteriorating now after what I would consider not that much use. So, is there a better option? I currently run a 0.65 ohm micro coil if that makes a difference, so it's not what I would consider ultra low. I always swap my batts at 3.8v-3.6v. Am I running them down too low?

    Are these okay to use without a kick?

    Depending on what ohms you're planning on running, they should be fine. I think with 30 amps, you're "safe" to run down to 0.2 ohms.

    You should just pm ss600 on eBay if you aren't sure hellfish, he has a lot better understanding of batteries and what you should and shouldn't use.

    With a fully charged sony vtc you would have to use a 0.14 Ohm coil to hit the 30 Amps which is just crazy, you will be vaping at 126 Watts and your mouth will probably turn into a giant blister in half a second.

    So will the sony's last more cycles than the MNKE? Has anyone used both and prefer the sony's?
