    Battery discussion

    Hi,

    So I was wondering what is the best to buy for batteries.

    For 18650 it seems like either Sony VTC4 or VTC5 is the go, but what about 18500 (are these the same as 18490?) and of course 18350.

    I guess recommendations for either mec mod or reg mod would be great as I use both.

    Kind Regards
    Peter

    yes, VTC4 & VTC5 for 18650 ... I don't have any 18500 so can't comment ... Have many 18350 Efest Purple 10.5A, best i've found to date.

    edit - IMO ... lol ... other good batteries out there to (depends on how you vape & Amps required)

    Yeah, read that the other day... I'm not sure what exactly to take from it apart from the obvious re-wrap. I havn't had any performance issues myself & havn't heard of any. Am i missing anything?

    I'd say that the best for 18490/500 is from the AW range that supersports600 sells on eBay.

    The efest purples are a lot better for sub ohm

    I recently bought a Launcher mech mod from FastTech and an Efest 18350 battery to power it and have found that the battery is too small. Is there generally a lot of difference in the physical sizes of the 18350 batteries or is my mod not made to the correct specs? The description clearly states that it is 18350/500/650 compatible. It's my first mech mod so I'm very much in the dark when it comes to the general set up. Just to clarify, I have extended the adjustable contacts out as far as they would reach and the battery still wriggles around in there.
