    Kgo and SmokTech eGo are 3.7. JT eGo is 3.3. eGo upgrade toggles between regulated and unregulated- 3.3 or 4.2 (mostly @ 3.7 volts)

    I have 2 Joye eGo-C 650's from my starter kit that I bought almost a year ago. I've used them a lot with LR eGo-C atties at 1.6 - 1.9 ohms with no problems. I had a few atties go below 1.5 ohms on me, probably the coils shorting. What happens is that the battery light flashes a few times, the battery shuts down and 5 clicks does not turn it back on. Putting it on the charger for a few seconds brings it back. Had this experience a few times. Never hurt the batteries that I was aware of. After that experience I always checked the resistance of LR atties before installing them. Resistance can however decrease while they are being used.

    It's not always easy to spot in product listings, even on the Joyetech website:

    Joyetech eGo-T 1000mAh Battery

    I researched the eGo class thoroughly cuz I was buying starter kits for a non profit vape prog I run. Kgo won out cuz it fired @ 3.7 volts and was a larger battery (1100 mah). Still distributing those same kits today with remarkable success.

    Ego batteries have always been regulated, even though stated voltage has always been listed as 3.7v. The only true unregulated eGo-class batteries were (new) Rivas and KGOs. The first Joyetech eGo to offer true 3.7 in unregulated mode was the eGo-C upgrade battery; it also offers a regulated, 3.3v mode. Ego-C Twist (and Vision Spinner) are variable voltage devices (3.3-4.8v).

    Kills batteries fast unless more than 900mah, 1100 to 1300 is better but depending on your vaping habits, might kill the buzz with the voltage drop off.

    I just was wondering if it is ok to use LR attys/clearomizers on the ego-t battery? I have 2 1000mAh ego-t batteries, and am using 1.8 ohm clearomizers, specifically 1.8 ohm Kanger T2's/T3's and eVods. One of the T3's is 2 something ohms, and the coils that came in with the evods are 2 something ohms, but i have replacement coils for the t3's and evods that are 1.8 ohms, and all my T2's are 1.8. This one site says that it doesn't warranty using anything below 2 ohms on the ego-t battery, but other things I read said it was fine to use LR attys on it...So what the hell is the truth?
    Yes, it's OK. Joyetech makes 1.5Ω atties, but proceed with caution and check the resistance of the atty frequently. Resistance tends to drop and 1.1Ω resistance used to mean sudden death of your eGo in the past, especially with those older batteries equipped with that infamous MOSFET switch. The circuitry of eGos has been improved recently.

    Yup yup. The good old MOSFET!

    1.1Ω is the kill point!
