    Default Amp limits on my batteries?

    So, I finally got the money to get my Magneto and I'm wanting to go sub-ohm. Please, save the preaching. I know the risks, I know what I'm doing with it and that's why I'm here asking this question. I know from my electronics/technology background how to build within the amp limits of my batteries, I just can't find anywhere what the limit on my current batteries is partly because I keep finding some answers saying 8C and some saying 10C and that's a difference I'd rather have cleared up before I try to build below .8 ohms.

    I currently only have EH IMR 18650's:

    Also, I know there are Sony and Panasonic batteries with a 30 amp limit so if you know the model on those, I'd appreciate it. I don't plan on running these cheap batteries for long, but they're what I have for now so I want to keep my fingers until I can replace them.

    Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no BT nor ANTZ. For I carry a large mod, and I blow the fattest clouds in the valley!

    even on the EH website they do not list this battery as a high drain model. so I would not push it.
    EH IMR battery - Newise Company


    Sony US18650VTC3 18650 1600mAh

    I do not know of any panasonic with a 30 amp discharge most are 10 amp with an 18 amp peak

    Panasonic NCR18650PD 18650 3.6V 2900mAH

    Panasonic CGR18650CH Rechargeable 2250mAh

    these are the ones most use from panasonic

    just make sure you stay within the limits and you will be ok.

    If you don't know, and don't know how to find out, well, I'll leave it alone.

    Like I said, I understand Ohm's law and amp limits. I just can not for the life of me find a straight answer on the limit of this particular battery. I have an extensive background in electronics and computer technology so I know better than to take this lightly. I'll just stay at 1+ ohms until I get some high drain batts.

    Thank you Baditude for that list. It helps a lot cause I hadn't found too many batteries I could work with.

    The Sony US18650VTC3 18650 1600mAh were exactly the ones I was thinking of.

    Sorry, I don't care if you go sub-ohm, but there are so many trying to do this without having the slightest clue the forces at work!
    My main point, if you don't know the rating on the battery, and can't find it, it's time to find another battery!

    Agreed. I don't want to see another exploding battery story on the news... In most cases, having the sense to ask about the limits would have prevented it. Or just not leaving your eGo batt charging in your car... I don't understand how people think they can play with fire when they barely understand that it's hot...

    And with that, you and I are on the same page!
