    RTD Vapor is a reputable, go to vendor for genuine good quality batteries. Get some IMR - High Drain and they will not only give you a good vape, they should last longer treated with care....

    What is the deal with the protected batteries on the RTD site??? Also would any of the Panasonic ones listed be good with the SID??? They have a higher mAh rating which is what I am looking for. Just don't know what the difference is with most of them. Would like to have 2500mAh or higher so I only have to carry one extra battery with me.

    Protected batteries, ICR, are a low drain variety, not made for VV/VW devices. If the description doesn't say IMR or High Drain or Hybrid they aren't made for the regulated mods.

    The Panasonic High Drain NCR18650PD Hybrid 2900mAh Protected Button Top - Batteries would work and are a 10 amp rating, enough for a regulated mod, too little for mech mods.

    You can use button top or flat top if the length is correct (Uses 18650 battery (18mm x 65mm IMR))

    I have a SID and it works great till you use it for 6 months or so, then the dreaded "low load" message appears when the chincy O ring in the stem wears out. I have to fix it every few months with some stretch and seal tape around the stem to deal with the "low load" issue. I've moved on to kamray 100+ and Sid stays at home now.

    That is the one I was eyeing. Figure one of them would get me through two days easy. Would that one be better or not as good as the Efest IMR 18650 2500mAh 35amp Purple???

    What would be a good, reliable basic charger with decent charging time??? They have more chargers than I have seen on any other site.

    The Efest IMR 18650 2500mAh 35amp Purple are a good choice for mech mods where you might be sub-ohming with 0.5Ω coils drawing major amperage. For a regulated mod like the SID, the Pannys are rated for sufficient amperage draw.

    Charger, the Pila, Xtar or Nitecore (i2 or i4) are all well respected, I would pick whichever you can find on sale..

    Naa not going to be doing anything like that. Still wanting to keep it pretty simple with my 1.8 and 2.1 coils. So that Panny would be a solid choice then?? Hate to keep asking what may seem like basic questions but is there any advantage or disadvantage of button top over flat top batteries???
