    Please recommend a long-life 18650 cell for low wattage vaping (Flat-top)

    I plan to use this cell in a XvoStick (clone), at no more than 20 watts at 1.2 Ohms.

    I already have a Samsung 25r which I intend to use in my XvoStick when it arrives. But since I vape at low watts, I suspect there's a cell that would provide longer life than a high-drain Samsung 25r.

    Suggestions appreciated, especially if you know if fits the XvoStick.

    Not sure what fits in the Xvostick but have done a little reading up on batteries recently and the LG's seem the way to go. Just ordered the HG2 from vapestreet. There 20A and have more mah than the Samsung, so will last longer.

    ????

    At your wattage draw the golden oldies would be more than fine you are only pulling 15 W @ 3.5A or so best case scenario
    3400mAh

    ( and Supersports is a well respected AVF member too )

    All the XvoStick Styled mods I've found on FT are 40W TC VW mods.
    For the 40W TC VW you need at very lest a 16amp battery.
    Since it is a DNA40 clone, don't rely on the battery monitoring.
    Grab a 20amp battery, with out fire in it's name.
    LG, Samsung, Sony & AW are all trustworthy brands

    Thanks Guys. Even though I vape at low wattage, since it's a DNA40 it looks like I need 20amp, so I'll go with the LG HG2 3.6v 3000mAh.

    I’ve been really happy with these from SS600 (similar capacity and price but about 50% more continuous grunt than the trusty NCR18650B) - 65mm long 3500mAh @ 10A continuous.

    I've been very happy with both the Samsung 30Q's and LG HG2's, the 30Q is a little cheaper and testing done by people (including supersport) show it handles 20amps fine and is a good alternative when the HG2's are not available (I beleive supersport has both the HG2 and 30Q in stock at the moment, VE should be getting more 30Q's soon)
