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