    Question Provari Battery Help

    I ordered a ProVari this weekend and it looks like I'm gonna want to get some high-drain batteries. I have quite a few 18650s my favs being the red & black Trustfire true 2400 although the blue 3000 mah is pretty nice, just won't fit in my Precious.
    Anyway, I want the longest life I can get. I realize that has to do with what atty and what voltage but I think my primary setting would be 4.4 or there-abouts with a regular joye 510 but I'm sure I'll play with that a bit. But using that as a baseline I'd like to get a battery that would last 16 hours... and would be nice to have a little room to spare. I've read a great deal but not all of the Provari thread and as well as other Provari related threads and have heard of folks using an AW 2900. I didn't think you could use a non-button-top battery. Questions:
    Provape says you cannot use the non-button-top batteries... can you with a magnet spacer? Or are they then too long. I've read some folks using the more common 18650s that are protected not being able to screw the bottom cap all the way.

    AW 18650 Protected 2200 mAh button top
    AW 18650 Protected 2600 non-button top
    AW 18650 Protected 2900 mAh non-button top
    - Are these high drain or is that the IMR only.

    Are protected batteries too long?

    AW IMR18650 1600mAh which is what provape recommends but I'd like more mah if possible.
    Or is this the best battery???
    Bottom line... What is the best battery I can buy for the ProVari?

    TIA

    The ProVari was engineered to use the specific batteries that ProVape recommends for a reason.

    The only batteries that I would recommend or use are the batteries that ProVape recommends.

    http://www.provape.com/v/faq.htm

    Vape360 from ProVape explains why in further detail in the following thread;

    ProVari Variable Voltage Mod

    If I run across what page it's on I'll post it for you, otherwise you would have to check through the thread yourself or someone else may post were it is for you.

    Maybe I should have asked in the modders forum.
    I know Provape recommends high drain batteries and why and I also know they sell the AW 1600 mah high drain battery for use with the Provari.
    Maybe I should have phrased it this way; does anyone know of a high drain battery with a longer mah rating than 1600?

    AFAIK, it is not possible to pack more mah in that size cell of that chemistry than what's currently available. But it looks like ProVape is about to introduce a new longer lasting battery to their lineup: New Batteries coming soon - ProVari Power 2500

    i seen that and i`m very interested if Provari backs it up but i`m pretty sure my buddy runs a 18650 2600mah in his provari. i cant give the specs on amps and all but if anyone is interested i`ll give him a call and get the details i can. i`m positive its 2600 and he used a rubber O ring to seal up the little gap between the threads for the extended cap. i just dont know if its safe for the unit.
