The 3400 mah pannys are perfect for the evic.

JohnDaddyO --Just because a battery has a button on top does not mean it's protected!!!
All the AW batteries we use in vaping do have button tops. The red versions are IMR/High Drain/Safer chemistry batteries. Provape recommends these, and only these, for the Provari.
There are new batteries showing up all the time these days and words like hybrid connected to them. The red AW 18350 and 18490/500 AW's have been the best performers and no lies about the amp limits or mAh ratings. I haven't studied enough yet to see how the new sanyo is in comparison.
I know I sure didn't like my efests. YMMV.
" A punched in tip sounds like mechanical abuse..."
What kind of abuse? I never hit them or, teased them. That covers physical and mental abuse. So, that only leaves...
HEY! Now wait just a darn minute!!
Never dropped my evic. What I an thinking is what I call power hitting. When the timer would get to 8-9 seconds, I would release the button and hit it again, Therefore overiding the 10 second cutoff Not sure if that is it but. I won't be doing that anymore!
Just got these today!
Peace and Love Peace and Love
With the Efests it seemed I was changing batteries every hour or so and with the AW's more like 4-5. I've had the same experience with off brand/no brand IMR's -- lasting about 1/2 as long as I expected and also wearing out (not holding charge & time to be recycled) very quickly. Thus, I've found it cheaper to buy the better batteries. (I usually use regulated devices.)
A couple of battery guru's (or several) have stated AW's the best in small sizes -- and at least one of them I know was no AW fan club member---but the actual tests and performance and consistency have continually proved it so. That was true until well into 2013.
I haven't done a side by side comparison of the Efest 18650's and any other brand. After my experience with the 18350's I moved them to storage for back up. As always, YMMV.

Finally got my Siam Mod for my eVic from Denmark.
Here's the family + Specs...
From left to right...
Angel (The Reliable Traveler) - Halo Triton VV, Halo Triton Tank, currently filled with Halo "Tribeca"
Vicky (The Relaxin' Homegirl) - Joyetech eVic w/ Siam 18350 Mod, Ehpro Kayfun Lite Plus, Currently filled with Seduce Juice "Snake Oil"
Maxi (The Slutty Cloudwhore) - Ehpro Maraxus Clone, Modified Dual-Coil Sub-Ohm Nimbus, Currently dripping Suicide Bunny "Mother's Milk"
I love them all dearly.
I've been using an EFest 18350 in the eVic for about a half hour now at 3.8v... Puff counter is at 18 and says I have 782 puffs left (highly doubt that...) battery is currently at 98% seems good.
Was having great luck with the Panasonics, but now having a problem with fast drain. Not sure I blame the battery for that.
