    Default Considering a Smoketek SID - Confused on batteries

    Looking at jumping in on my first budget MOD. It was a toss-up between the Vamo and the SID and I am leaning towards the SID. But I am a little confused on which batteries are best to use. I have looked and researched and there are many different types to choose from. What I want is two batteries, one to have as a spare. I want the highest mAh rating I can get for long life. But I also want the safest and most secure battery. As in one I can put on charge and if I forget to take it off right away it will be safe. Also not sure flat top or button top. And to go along with it need a good but basic charger. Something with decent charging times. Obviously something with a 1000mAh rating or higher.

    All suggestions welcome.

    AW IMR. Pila, Xtar or Nitecore (i2 or i4)

    (you can also go from this list here http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...protected.html)

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

    For a VV or VW mod you should be using an IMR high drain battery, not an ICR for safety and performance. Your mod will be pulling extra amperage to be able to boost the voltage. (there's no such thing as a free lunch...)

    The Sony 18650 VTC4 30amp Battery or 18650 Hybrid 2250mah 3.7v IMR Battery are both IMR / Hybrid safe chemistry - high drain and much safer than any ICR battery, plus they will give you better performance on a variable voltage mod.
    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)

    Wow those are some good prices for the SID. My local shop wants $60 and the cheapest online I had found is $44.95. Are both of those sites, RTD and Vaping Me reliable??? I have never heard of them before.
