    Default Reo Grand Battery - Flat Top or Button Top?

    Does the Reo Grand use flat top or button top 18650's? Or, will it use either one?

    Just checking before I buy a Grand because I've got several flat tops but no button tops. (My Silver Bullet and VTube both use flat tops.)

    Button tops are best. Being a mechanical mod, you don't have to push the button down as hard/far to fire the atty. I have used flat tops, but find them a hassle. If I use that battery, I put a small earth magnet on top (about the size of a button)

    I do know the manufacturer recommends button tops.

    Hope this helps!

    As said the button top works the best. The Grand's recommended battery is the AW IMR 18650 3.7 @ 1600 mAh.

    Others will work but may compress the spring too much. It is a safety spring that will collapse in case of a short.

    Ok, thanks for the info. I just bought a Mini off the Classifieds, and I have some 14500's incoming. But, if I like the Mini I'll probably buy a Grand just for the battery life of the 18650. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. (We need a "rain on the parade" emoticon.) If nothing else, it will give me a chance to use a bottom feeder and see if I like the whole concept. On the other hand, I think there are plenty of people who use and like their mini's.

    I have a mini, 18490 and two grands. Personally, with the same atty, they all vape the same. It is just a matter of size, juice bottle, and battery life.

    My 2 cents

    I have used the recommended batteries on my Mini and slapped on a L.R. 306. It vaped as good as any other REO. The downfall is the battery life. I find about 4 hours till I change it out. The Mini is perfect for running out and about for awhile. The size is great!

    I have a lot of REO's, 52 to be exact. I have always included a Mini when going out.
