    Same here, ordered them from Fast-tech, so it's taking awhile to get to me. But so far these batteries have powered my UDC Trident like a champ. Got the nitecore charger as well. Hope it lasts longer than the Trustfire charger that I originally had

    They've started weaning them out for the more cost effective 2000mah version. Most users won't have a problem with that, but us vapors that do sub ohms have to start looking for alternatives. That was an amazing battery and lighthound sent me notice the other day they'll still have supplies for a while but no new ones are being made. I try to think ahead so I'm looking for a good battery now rather than later.

    Be sure to get unprotected batteries. I mean, you can put a protected 18650 in the battery compartment - but the door won't close because of the added length.

    The term "unprotected" when describing batteries is a pet peeve of mine. The correct term is "IMR". Safe chemistry. High drain. Lithium Magenese (Li-Mn).

    Unprotected can also mean a unprotected NCR/ICR li-ion battery which is an entirely different Li Ion battery chemistry. Unprotected li-ion batteries should NEVER be used in a mod due to their inherent unsafe battery chemistry without protective circuits.

    I use the samsung 20r batteries. I build around 0.4 ohms on my patriot and these batteries perform well.

    I just upgraded to my first mod, a zmax v5. I've been using nothing but green label panasonics which are 3400mah. Seem to work great.

    I would highly recommend the Nitecore 18650s and chargers. Nitecore makes tactical and emergency flashlights, and those really aren't useful at all without a decent battery.
    Same with vaping equipment though, right? :P

    Actually, a "protected" battery means it has an IC (integrated circuit) which protects the battery from over charging, over discharging, and too much current. The battery actually has a little circuit board attached to it under the shrink wrap.

    I have the VTR and really like my Panasonic NCR18650B 3400mAh batteries for it. Super long vape time, and super stable chemistry. And since you are using a regulated device, you don't need (nor should you use) a protected battery. The VTR will handle the protection.

    I'm going to have to try the Panasonics. This Efest is ok but I vape pretty much constantly and I've never run the VTR down to the red indicator but I usually put it on the charger in the evening and use my Evod for a couple hours while it charges. I just need to buy a spare battery. Spent all my cig money on gear and juice til next month. I've got Li-Poly's for my Planes that will put out 60 amps... Could build a hell of a coil for those...lol! I can charge those in 10min. I'm not sure how fast you can charge Li-mn batts?
