    Thank you for the clarification. Now starts the hunt for a quality IMR.

    Thanks!!
    IMR or a hybrid. Top of Baditude's list.

    IMHO, the batteries with the best all-purpose specifications for a regulated mod are the Panasonic or Orbtronic NCR18650PD or PF series (both 2900mah). These are high-drain, safe-chemistry hybrid batteries with a 10 amp limit.

    I don't use those, but I use the "old reliable" AW IMR batteries in all of my mods, mechanical or regulated.

    I know that Panasonic makes a 3800mah hybrid that would probably work pretty good.

    Link or it isn't so. Panasonic and Orbtronic both offer a 3400 mah battery. The NCR18650B is a hybrid battery with the chemistry very heavily weighted to an ICR battery, so much so that it is no longer considered a high drain battery and only has a 6.8 amp limit. NOT recommended for a regulated mod or a mechanical mod using a Kick or RBA. This battery is best suited for flashlights, not APV's.

    i like the orbie sx30s, but Sony VTC4s are all the rage too

    My sx30s have a mAh of 2100, and that is the way to tell these bad boys apart - only the old Li-ion protected ones have huge ratings like 3400+
    and they are fine for certain things - but not the high discharge rates of e-cigs, where what you want is a high drain, high discharge battery. Those do not have such huge numbers but they are safer for that reason - they are IMRs.

    I bought 2 of the NCR18650B then found your battery post and immediately ordered 2 NCR18650PF and still waiting on them. Now just gotta unload the original ones I bought someplace. Thanks for all the battery info

    The Orbtronic sx30 is a rebranded Sony vtc4, right? Or am I wrong?

    I was mistaken, went looking for the battery in question and was a 2900mah not 3800. Apologies.
