Evening all. Say, I see so many folks now going to the IMR batteries because they deliver a high amount of instantaneous current, and it just worries me a bit.
If a mod or atty/cartomizer ever shorts out while using an IMR battery, there is no protection, the battery will self destruct. Lighthound.com wrote me in answers to several of my questions, "A dead short with an IMR cell will release a tremendous amount of current + heat."
For many of us who have been vaping with protected lithium-ion batteries all along, we're used to knowing that a dead short in our mod/switch/atty/carto/etc simply means nothing happens. We can fix the problem with the mod, and voila, the batteries aren't even destroyed from the short.
I'm thinking that at minimum, shouldn't be be letting one another know about the extra care needed to ensure there is no short in a mod set-up before putting in an IMR battery and pressing that button?
Dunno, is anyone else concerned? Maybe this is being discussed elsewhere already?
