    I was on the forums and I came across an intriguing battery the Sony SE US18650VTC3.

    It's a 3.7V 1600mah Battery that's supposed to have a lower resistance and be capable of 30Amps.

    I was a little worried about it until I read that Sony manufactured it to collapse if it shorts.

    I was very intrigued and went to Ebay and bought a set which arrived today. Fasttech also carries it [Learned Later]

    This Video is the results of a quick test.
    Equipment: K100 [Kamry] Mechanical, AGI [Not AGA] .5 Ohm on SS 400 Mesh

    I went to my local Vape Shop last night with the Sony 30 Amp batteries and they blew every other battery away including AW

    Cool find! How about longevity? I find MNKE 20 amp out last and out preform AWs and Panys in sub OHM situations. How about dual coil? I love my ITHY with a .3 ohm dual coil! Im going to give them a try.

    I'm convinced after testing it that it's no knockoff because it outperformed everything else.

    Nice review Tom!

    Looks like it may be a winner!
    Being brand new, there's almost no info available besides basic info and your review.

    I'm curious as to what devices I could use those on. I'm thinking of one day going mod. How long do they last under heavy vaping?
    Inquiring about the Sony, thanks

    Just the little reading I've done on CPF, makes me scared to buy batteries on ebay - be careful.

    I'd be more worried vaping American GMO nic base than batteries.

    :D I'll let the forum know how these batteries perform at 35 watts. :)

    As for silly posts about being careful, I never did listen to my Mama :D

    I am glad to see more of these batteries becoming available.
    Fasttech also has one of the Samsung INR's available. It's not the 20A, but the 15A model.

    http://www.fasttech.com/products/14...ng-inr18650-20q-36v-2000mah-rechargeable-li-i

    Maybe sometime in the near future someone will see what happens to each during a hard short. The AW's are the only ones I've seen in that situation and the manufacturers are pretty secretive about the tech.
