      Hello again Mooch. I keep hearing about people speaking on Pulse Discharge when using their mechanical mods. Is pulse even relative to vaping? Some people say pulse is mili seconds while others think its fine to vape within there max pulse specs.

        Pulsed discharges are how we vape so it can be important. Pulses are anything shorter than continuous so it covers a huge range of pulse times. I use 5 second pulses for my testing but they can be any length.

        There aren't any valid pulse ratings set by any battery company though so I recommend ignoring them.

      I got 2 LGHE418650 in my Kbox200w right now, and my resistance is 0.2, and the batteries are rated 20A, wich I´m then over by about 1A, should I be worried? Thanks and sorry!

        The Kbox 200W can draw up to about 31A from each battery at 200W. But if you're not chain vaping with long pulls then HE4's are ok. For any setup, if the batteries are getting more than warm, lower the power.

      Hello Mooch. I have been using a website called imrbatteries.com and have purchased multiple vtc4's. Ive had no problems with them but Im worried that they could be fake. Are there really any real Vtc's on the market concidering they stopped making them?
      1. Mooch

        I buy from imrbatteries.com and they work hard to ensure that everything they sell is authentic. There are authentic VTC's available. No one knows the real story but if Illumn, IMR Batteries, and Liion Wholesale have them for sale you can assume they're genuine.

      hi..
      have you ever heard of AWT IMR 18650??
      are they true IMR or INR?
      are they really good?
      cause the price tag is much higher than samsung 25R and LG HG2.

        No need to wait for me to get back to you. :)
        You can check which batteries I 've tested by looking in my blog.

        I've tested a couple of AWT's and they were ok batteries but did not meet their ratings. They are IMR or IMR but I don't know which.

      Hi Mooch,

      thanks alot for the great battery safety chart you made.

      I got a regulated Kbox 200W and I just bought 2 Samsung 30Q at my local shop.

      On the chart it seems to be the same thing as the 25R's Amp wise.. Am I right?

      Should I be alright or should I exchange them for LG HE-4?

      I'm sorry I'm kinda confused about all this and I want to be safe.
      1. Mooch
        Mooch
        The 30Q's should be fine up to 150W or so if you're not chain vaping with crazy long pulls.

        Okay perfect, I plan on using up to 80W-100W maximum.
        I got it for battery life more than for sick buildz.

        Thanks bro :p

        I forgot to ask last time, is it valuable for any build (The 150W Limit)

        Like would I be okay if I did a 0.2 or 0.3 ohms build firing it at 70-100 Watts?

      Hey i was told you know your batteries, im planning on getting that rx200 and building up to .05 ohms i like my higher wattages between 100 and 150 which batteries would be best in this mod for me?

        They werent specific on their wattage range so you think the hg2s are good up to 200 watts? If i wanted to push it that high

        I actaully made a mistake on my first post i would be building up to .2 ohms and vaping at 100-150 maybe higher.
        Feb 8, 2016
      4. Mooch

        Yes, up to 200W is ok. Coil resistance doesn't matter with a regulated device (up to the limit of the mod).

      So i was told your the one to ask about battery safety. I was wondering if you could tell me what batteries would be best for 2 devices. The Rx200 and the Snowman Mech. I'm usually building around .2ohm and above. But i might dive a little lower with the mech, but nothing under .1ohm. What would be the best battery choice's for these mods?.

        Dual parallel?

        Sorry, I can't look up that mod for you. If it's parallel then I recommend HG2's or 30Q's for it also. If you chain vape or take long pulls keep an eye on battery temperature.

      Mooch, I just want to say thanks for doing all the testing you do and have done. It's value is priceless in a world where battery manufacturing is pretty much the wild west. Knowing how a battery will perform is the biggest unknown danger on the hardware side of vaping, and you manage to remove a great deal of that mystery.

      With a series mod is the amps your drawing evenly distributed over all the batteries or can you only go to the CDR of one battery?
      1. Mooch
        Mooch
        Each battery in series must be able to handle the total current draw. It is not divided.
