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

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).

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'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?
