    i laughed when i read that, i would not trust that store at all,

    your mech mod will only be as good as your batteries are! im not a big fan of the smaller batteries i feel like a high drain 18650 work the best, i have aw and the sony 30a batteries and the work fantastic with my mech mod.

    I don't see that your batts would have that much of an impact when freshly charged. Realize your Mech Mod fires at 3.7 volts and anything above 2.0 ohms really weakens the vape. I run a non profit vape prog and we issue Kgo 3.7 volt PVs along with the SmokTech XL 1.7 ohms single coil ohms cartos.

    Like Bad I'm not a fan of the Efests. AW, Panasonic or MNKE are my choices. I have the Pannys cuz they were on sale- 2 X 2250 mah for $10 delivery included. Actually own 10 of them

    My experience:

    I've ALWAYS used AW IMRs in both me regulated and mechanical mods. When buying a charger and batteries for my daughter's first mod setup, I decided to try some Efests for the heck of it. I got two 14500 IMR Efests for her and two 18350 IMR Efests for my Mini Provari.

    For the first couple of weeks, I noticed no difference between the Efests and AW's in a rotation. But then after that I noticed a sharp decrease in battery time, almost by half with the Efests. Around the same time, my daughter asked why her batteries were only lasting a couple of hours, when they lasted 4 - 5 hours when new.

    I had her give me her Efests and I gave her my AW's I was using in my 14500 mod. The Efests are all now in a drawer.

    While I agree that I prefer AW batts over efest in the long run, I highly doubt your dislike of your new setup is being caused by the efest battery if your not happy with it with a freshly charged new battery.

    How does the carto your using on your new mod perform on your 3.2 volt Ego ? or your vamo set to 3.7 volts ?

    Personally I find any carto over 2 ohm to be too high to use on my mechanicals. I much prefer 1.5- 1.7 ohm cartos or 510 attys.

    To be honest I put the so called low res carto on the ego and vaped away no problem, didnt even charge the ego!
    Switch back to mod and hardly anything.

    It's probably the switch in the Sigelei #20, they have been a problem since they came out, most vendors just pulled them and stopped selling them.

    Hi slenderman
    I am somewhat of a newb so big grain so salt here.

    I use the VAMO with an EVOD 2.5 ohm clearomizer. (not sure of how a clearomizer differs form a carto) . I also have an ECO 650 battery.
    My Vamo set up works great, as does the 650 battery, vapor production is the same. The 650 does not last near as long .

    fwiw my KTS in 350 mode with 2.0 ohm carto does a pretty nice job and hits harder than my eGo Mini + eVOD 1.8 ohm.

    What they said^^^^. Low resistance 510 Boges are 2.0 Ohms and vary from 1.9 to 2.1. Your reading is definitely high. I only use AW, MNKE and Panny IMR's too. I have an eFest charging bag....Probably not the battery though if new fully charged, probably the carto. 3.7 volts at 2.2 Ohms is only 6.2 Watts, or a little low for me. I'm usually between 6.5 and 7.5 on the Watts, and many juices will have their sweet spot in that range. I think you need a lower resistance carto for sure. Also, your vape shop is not very knowledgeable. Good luck!
