    Default Orbtronics 18650 2900mAh High Drain Version part 1

    ORBTRONIC 18650 2900HD

    hey folks just received two new Orbtronic 18650 2900 High drain Battery's from Sal. In the next few days I will exclusively be using these battery's with my most complicated coil builds to see if it can handle the pressure of my ideal vape. from .4-.7 ohms Dual Highlanders and Triple Highlanders.

    I will be making several followup videos during the course of the next 2 weeks and let you guys know what i uncover compared to MNKE batteries.

    I will be sending one of these batteries out to another heavy Low Rez vapor to test out with me that enjoys .4 -.6 ohms as well.

    If these perform extraordinary then ill do one a special video never seen before Quad Highlander coils.

    Please guys let me say this I am not encouraging anyone to order anything. Im not even done testing these batteries. please wait till Im done and then i can give you all my findings that way you can make a better decision.

    So far from testing it with MNKE, AW IMR the following I can say. From 4.1 volts fully charged all three battery in use in a GGTS with .6 ohms dual coil that on my tank ometer reads when powered on I get 3.8 volts on ORBTRONIC 18650 2900HD, Aw 18650 2000 mah is 3.4 volts, and mnke 18650 I get 3.6 volts.

    that is only thing I can share at this moment. I really need more time to stress these batteries and see how it performs after 4 to 5 cycles of draining and recharging to compare. As of now its to early to make any decision. many things can happen, it can die after 2-3 cycles of recharging or at fully charged 4.1 volts it can spit out on a load of .6 ohms 3.2volts.

    Give me a few days to give you another followup but till then stick with what you using.
    If anyone has any questions feel free to ask them here. that way i can forward them to Sal.


    LIVE HARD AND VAPE HARD BABY!!!!

    As far as I could see, these are rewrapped Panasonic NCR18650PD 2900 , or am I wrong?

    We have a chart for this battery, it looks pretty decent: AkkuDB (5A load)

    Hi Manni I'm thinking about that too so I emailed Sal about it. From what I can see the other one you mention is protected and are not high drain and these are. But I'm waiting for Sal to get back to me in regards to what are the differences between them. The other thing I'm noticing is the price difference between those two batteries.

    NCR18650PD High Drain one battery for $13.99
    NCR18650PD High Drain 18650 2900 mAh

    Protected NCR18650 2 batteries for $12.99
    NCR18650 PROTECTED 18650 Battery 2900mAh

    So far for the ones I'm testing are NCR18650PD
    Max Discharge (constant current): 10Amps
    Max Discharge Pulse Current (5-6 sec.): 18Amps

    Here is my personal sweet spots:
    .7 ohms @ 4.2 volts is a total of 6 amps. 25 watt
    .6 ohms @ 4.2 volts is a total of 7 amps. 29.4 watt
    .5 ohms @ 4.2 volts is a total of 8.4 amps. 35.28 watt
    .4 ohms @ 4.2 volts is a total of 10.5 amps. 44.1 watt (one of my favs)(I use special batteries for these)

    Special times only with a 26650 battery
    .3 ohms @ 4.2 volts is a total of 14 amps 58.8 watts
    .25 ohms @ 4.2 volts is a total of 16.8 amps 70.56 watts
    .2 ohms @ 4.2 volts is a total of 21 amps 88.2 watts

    Now according to specs for this NCR18650PD 2900 High Drain Battery
    Battery type: 18650 Li-ion Hybrid
    Capacity: 2900mAh
    Max Discharge (constant current): 10A
    Max Discharge Pulse Current (5-6 sec.): 18A
    Full charge: 4.2V
    Charging method: CV/CC
    Minimum charging current: 0.6A
    Rapid Charging current: 1.35A
    Nominal (storage) voltage: 3.6V-3.7V
    Minimum discharge voltage level: 2.5V
    Dimensions: W 18.5mm x H 66.5mm
    Weight: 45g
    External Protection (PCB): No
    Button top: Yes

    Since Max pulse current (meaning) pressing fire button 5-6 seconds and releasing battery can handle up to 18a. I don't think I would be doing anything below .3 ohms with this battery.
    As I shown above .3 ohms at 4.2 volts gives you 14 amps @58.8 watts.
    Now the battery I would use if I wanted to do .25 ohms @ 4.2 volts which is 16.8 amps at 70.56 watts would be a AW IMR 18650 1600 mAh (not sure about MNKE haven’t tried it this low before). Since NCR18650PD offers the pulse rate of 5-6 seconds release up to 18amps I will be testing it once battery reaches its 4th recharge cycle.

    Someone else tested the Aw IMR 18650 1600 mAh High Drain up to 20 amps
    u can view.
    Test of AW IMR 18650 1600mAh (Red)

    That’s it for now Ill keep you gys updated as I continue testing this battery. Anyone have any questions feel free to ask I’m more than happy to forward any questions to Sal.

    Bish great data , I think your numbers are off though . A fully charged battery may be 4.2 volts but thats only without a load , under load voltage drops and the bigger the load the more the voltage drop .
    Insert dirty jokes about load here .........
