    Will this work for a Mod?

    Hi all

    Stumbled across these Ni-Mh Battery's, they are 1.2v, 2500 mah. Do you think if I ran 3 of them in series I would be getting 3.6v with 7500mah?
    You would think they would last a couple of days? Any thoughts from you battery nuts would be appreciated. Sanyo eneloop XX AA NiMH 2500mAh Rechargeable Batteries x 4pack #4HR3UWX - Digital Camera Warehouse

    That's not to bad. I wonder what the drop off would be like compared to a lithium battery?

    NiMh batteries can be ok in mods , as long as you ensure they have a large enough discharge capability ( most do ) drawbacks include lower energy to weight as compared to li-po ,li-ion. voltage of 1.2V percell thereby necessitating 3 cells to get close to vaping voltages , can be prone to media chrystalisation if used incorrectly (over discharge_ resulting in lesser capacity ... the semi mythical "memory effect"

    Eneloops require a dedicated charger too
    The main advantage they have are a very low self discharge rate when stored charged .

    For most e-cig applications you get better value for dollar using good li-ion cells

    stick with Lithium, theres a reason everything big drain like tools/ecigs/torches is going that way, unless you really want an overweight, underpowered, huge, inefficient mod of course..

    I doubt ecigs would even have started out if lithium batts where not developed first. a minimum useable mod would need something like 3 AAA's or so ..

    If you want something small, a pair of 10440's or 14500's will give you bang for buck,
    a pair of 10440's is only about the same as an Ego though MAh wise
