    I use the 3400 Panasonics on my SID. No problem at all. Then again, I never exceed 10w.
    I used them for 5 months on my evic (now dead) before I got the SID. Still getting 3 days or so.

    If the tube has a button on the inside reaching down towards the battery then it will be able to take a flat top.
    But if the tube is flat at the top, then you need the battery to have a buttontop.

    Just a heads up on that. Some of us UK vapers with broken evic control heads bought SIDs in the hope of mixing and matching some custom designed tubes/mods.
    For example, I expected to use my matt black SID control head with my aftermarket Evic tubes.
    I didn't go so well.
    Not everything fits with everything perfectly. One girl bought a chrome SID to use with very expensive "Siam" evic tubes. That didn't work either.
    Best to find out for sure before ordering a variety of items.

    Yeah his review did say that the evic tubes worked on the SID control heads but not so much when using the SID tubes on the evic control heads. It was pretty hit and miss. Not too worried about it as I prolly won't be looking at switching tubes anyway. But it is nice to have an option.

    Panny is solid, and according to specs the SID takes flat or button top. Some mods will only take one style, so if you have an eye on one that needs a specific type, get those....
    I'm puffin' on a pipe bomb and carrying a detonator in my pocket,
    so just what was it you wanted to hassle me about ?? (No, I do not sub-ohm, pipe bomb is a joke)

    Shoot. A few posts back someone posted they use the Panny 3400mAh. Maybe it was this one.

    Orbtronic is a great site to check specs on a battery, and they are another well respected vendor....
