    Battery Selection for Mod

    Hi

    After 20+ years of smoking its time to change

    I have just ordered a starter kit to get vaping. I have ordered the Smok Nano One kit, using the Smok R-Steam Mini mod. I have looked everywhere on the net for a recommended battery for this mod but have found very little. One shop pink-mule.com states on its page - Uses one 18650 flat top battery (it is recommended to use batteries of at least 30 Amp).

    This is the only obscure reference I have found to a recommended battery for this mod.

    A good picture of batteries with some 3rd party testing I found was https://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/fo...e-jpeg.555235/.

    Could someone please confirm that I should be using a 30A battery? I realise this might be hard as I am yet to vape and dont know what my "prime vaping range" will be wattage and ohms (who knows?) so the battery selection could be a bit subjective. Maybe a Sony VTC4?

    Anyhow any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Saix

    (FYI - I ordered NIC from HILIQ on Friday midday and it was at my door ( Gold Coast ) on Monday midday. Pretty impressive!)

    It's unlikely you'll ever need the drain capacity of a 30A battery, but Sony VTC4's are excellent batteries and will stand you in good stead. I use Samsung 25r's, which are also pretty good. I'm sure others may have preferences.

    Congrats on making the financial commitment to switch mate. You won't regret it.

    Be sure to drop in and share your story, this community has much to offer to new vapers as well as old hats.

    As a precaution, no matter what choice you go for... Don't buy cheap batteries from China! It's just not worth the couple of dollars you might save.

    A reputable local dealer with great customer service is supersports600 (on eBay). He sells all authentic and if anything goes wrong he'll go out of his way to help you.

    Hi guys

    I really appreciate all the suggestions. THANKYOU!

    I was actually just going over supersports600 ebay page when i checked back here haha! Looks like a great place to buy batteries from.

    I was further reading the comments on Mooch's post https://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/fo...atteries.7593/ and he recommended to a user if you vape at under 75W the HG2 or 30Q is a fantastic choice. The HG2 or 30Q actually give you more vaping time if you're above 20W or so due to the greater efficiency of the HG2 and 30Q.

    From reading countless other posts I will probably be in this range 20-75W and the mod is an 80W mod so I guess I will go with either of these. Probably the LG HG2.

    Loving AVF. Really great information and fast responses.

    Again thanks for posting you have been really helpful.

    Mooch dropped support for the brown LG. 18amp on a good batch, less on most batches. Go the 30q IMO
