So... Can anyone point me a #'s that show ... battery lifetime for the eGo Twist type of systems? Specifically:
Does using lower voltages (Buck) on the twist result in better efficiency and thus longer life per charge than using higher voltages (Boost)? Or is it the other way around? I'm assuming boost has an efficiency loss, but that may be "made up for" because of the higher voltage which is more efficient by itself. IDK if that makes sense.
I know higher voltages are more efficient as a general rule, but when running through a boost circuit to get it is that negated? Someone with more knowledge of step-up transformers and such may pipe in here for example.
Let's say I have a 1.5 Ω atty at 3.4 volts (7.7 watts) and a 3 Ω atty at 4.8 volts (7.7 watts) puff times equal. Does one run out faster? (I know the voltage won't stay at 4.8 volts for long, but for purposes of discussion...it's an example)
Inquiring minds want to know.
As always, thanks in advance to the brain trust here.
