      Howdy! I tried to call you a couple of weeks ago, but it wouldn't go through. Nothing of importance, I just wanted to say hi.

        Nice to know you were thinking of me. I also think of you. Did you ever relocate? I am still living with brother; taking early pension retirement money; medical disability judgement will be in late August. Still vaping: using an RX200 regulated mod. I don't post much on ECF anymore.

      Hello @Baditude. I was just wondering if you have heard anything about these new Imren 50amp max batts. They have Leppard print on them and they do say 50 amp max, 2600mah. Not sure what theyre max dis rating is, only the pulse max, which I know is very unreliable.Just wondering if youve heard anything good or otherwise. Thanks

        "Imren Leopard 50A 2600mAh 18650 Bench Test Results...just a 20A rewrap" --Mooch's Blog

        Imren is one of those brands who rewrap "reject" cells from Samsung or LG, and then inflated the ratings for a quick buck. Don't fall for the hype.

        There are NO 18650 batteries on the market with over 30 amps continuous discharge rate.

      I came across this;
      New Efest 18650 2500mah - 35 amp! | Page 3 | E-Cigarette Forum
      and this in particular;
      "...Discharge current:30A (60A can last for 75 seconds)

      If you can take a 60A pull off an atomizer for 75 seconds, I want to shake your hand. :)"

      I can't seem to find any evidence of any sort to confirm the difference in time lenght between pulse and cdc.
      Can you help?

      Kind regards
      M :)

        You won't find consistant findings of pulse ratings because every manufacturer has their own definition of what a pulse rating is, so in effect they are unreliable at best, and deceiving/misleading at worse. Only be concerned with the "continuous" discharge rating. The "maximum continuous discharge rate" is an industry standard specification.

        The problem with half of the manufacturers is that they intentionally confuse consumers with generic specification terms. Most of these companies originate in China, meaning they don't fall under the reputable standards of the rest of the world. They can claim whatever they wish, without any legal backlash.

        Ok..:)
        I've been using efest 35A 2500mAh in a mec (I have an istick 50w now as my daily vaper), but havent had any problems and I've build as lov as 0.15 - 0.20. Never have gotten hot or even warm on me.

        Anyways - thx for your answer :):

      Hello Mr. Baditude. Thank you for your blog on carto tanks; I now own several. Just wanted to let you know about a great sale I ran across. At this time DFW vapor has IB Tanked tanks on sale for $1.99. The 22mm and 25 mm are available, and the color choice is random, but still a great deal. Also, a 5 pack of Boge cartomizers for .99. Again, thanks for your help.

      Good Morning Baditude,
      I stumbled across authentic Sony VTC5's at illumn.com for a reasonable price this morning. I'm not very experienced at posting information but I am an avid reader of your posts on battery basics. I figured if I let you know, you'll know the best way to get this out to the members.

        There are already posts on ECF alerting folks that some vendors are selling these again. Thanks for thinking of me, though.

      Hello sir. Recently read where you talk about the MXJO 35 amp batt being rewrapped Lg batts. Ive been vaping in a mech mod on rda @. 31 ohms and now worried. Can you direct me to a place where I can find the truest way to detect a fraud? Im now a little nervous :O

        I don't know. Speaking for myself, I use 0.6 ohm dual coils in a dripper. But I equally enjoy a 1.5 ohm in a Kayfun RTA. You just have to know how to tweak different delivery devices to get the results you desire.

        You know your right. Ever since I got a mech thats regulated Im able to push wattage on a higher resistance coil and I no longer have to ONLY build 0.15 or 0.2 ohms to get my desired result. I just wrapped a 0.35 and it works nicely w/60 watts. Thanks for your help

        On my cherry Bomber Id have to build just right(depending on which rda) to get the results I was looking for, where as on a reg. Device I could tweak the watts. Never really thought of all that, but its pretty cool when I finally understood it :)

      Hello Baditude, was wondering, I use an IPV Mini 2 which states a max AMP of 30, but I recently bought an AWT 18650 3.7V 2600mah 40A which is over 30A and I was wondering, will I still be able to use it without hurting the mod? A friend of mine told me using a 40A battery can fry the chip on a digital mod
      1. Baditude
        Baditude
        I don't know of any true 40 amp 18650 battery. The specs on the AWT shrinkwrap is 40 amp, but I don't believe that's a continuous discharge rate but a pulse rating. More than likely the continuous rating is just 20 amps. The mod's processor will only draw the power it needs from the battery, so no battery will fry the chip in a digital mod. All regulated mods have protection circuitry to protect the chip.

      Ok... So I'm using a Boge SR carto in an OCD tank from ibtanked on my MVP 2.0. The resistance keeps changing anywhere from 4.4-7.0??? Should I toss it and start with a new one? What would cause it to do that?

      Hi Bad, just wanted to send you a personal note of thanks....it's been 1 year since I stated my vape journey. You were one of the members here that gave your time and advice when I was starting and for that I owe you my thanks. I haven't been on here as often as the start, new hobbies and family life have taken a lot of my time lately. I hope things are well with you and yours. chim.
