    I have always preferred 18350 mods because of the size. Battery life and power isn't as good as an 18650, but it's just so much more pocketable IMO, and I like the look of smaller mods as well. Though with a dripper, I'm starting to think a 18500 would be more practical.

    What would you say is the size you use the most throughout the day on average?

    To be honest I've never brought home any 18350s mostly because the temptation to stack them into my 18650 mechs may be to great to resist... So majority of the time I am on an 18650 or 4 x AA NiMh aka a 'puck'. The next smallest thing I have uses AA sized Li-Ion cells... I really like my flashlight mech that uses a single 14400 for the ultimate in portability. Maybe its just me but the 18350 and 500 devices feel awkwardly shaped, too fat and not long enough.

    I love my 18650 in my vamo, but for portability's sake I don't mind my svd either.... so many options, so little time!

    It's almost a tie for me between the 18500s and 18650s. I didn't have any 18500s until a few months ago, so I've been mostly using those because they are larger than the 18350s (which are basically useless to me because of the short battery life). I just almost never like the look of a device in 18350 configuration. I do think the mini ProVari is adorable, but I never really cared for my SVD with an 18350. Those were just emergency batters, basically.

    I think I use 18650, 18500, and 18350 equally.

    SiD and magneto both in 18650 mode since I only have 2 Sony 650s. Hcigar nemesis on the way and I think I need to add some 350 & 490/500s to my stockpile.

    To me...the 18490 offers the best compromise between device size and battery life. I do use both other options, with the 18650 coming in 2nd.

    For a year now I have carried an 18650. I got tired of carrying around a huge flashlight. As a matter of fact I have a bunch of 18490 batteries in the mail right now. They should be here Monday. I'm glad this is my last weekend of lugging a huge heavy mod! :(

    Used to carry along my SVD with 18650s and a kayfun, now my Origin-Aqua hybrid with an 18650 is outhright tiny. With an 18350 it's almost too small. I do carry along my Hammer with a Kayfun with an 18350 most of the time, much due to it looking fantastic

    I have several at my disposal, but since I'm generally just at my desk, I don't need the larger battery and prefer the size of the 18490 in my hand.

    For at work I prefer the small size of the 18350 in my SVD, but at home I always use a 18650 and a RBA genny or dripper.

    18650 for in house use

    For formal occasions, 18500 and a spare in the pocket. I do have an 18350 for my telescoping mod but it is only used with a ProTank. My EDC is soon to be the mechanical/Kayfun Lite so 650/500 IMRs have to be used unless I want to wrap a 1.5 ohm coil.

    Out and about, pretty much 18650's exclusively, except for when I'm stacking 18350's in a VV/VW mod.

    I've recently ordered some 18350s but I've been using 18650s since I started

    18650's are what I have and what every VV mod I have takes, not to mention that I keep stocking up on them every time I take apart a laptop battery
