    Hello Everyone,

    Looks like I have to get a new pair. My last two went kaput due to rain damage. My water-proof backpack did not turn out to be water-proof at all. I have a few Sonys with me. But want to get a Samsung. From the specs they look identical only 26s are 2600mAh. Which one to get? Or it really doesn't matter.

    The 26JM is a low-current cell, something like 5A and not really suitable for vaping.

    Um.... Not to be nosy but your backpack may have not been waterproof but your battery case should have been? As far as I can tell? You weren't carrying around a pair of loose batteries in your backpack were you? Because if so, maybe it was good that it you know, was raining.

    I don't know for a fact that my battery cases are totally waterproof and I don't know how much rain it was but they seem pretty tightly latched, enough that unless you dropped it in a pool of water or something.... It would have to be raining awfully HARD.

    Mooch said he didn't show ALL of the good batteries in his recommended table because if he did, folks unfamiliar with batteries would be confused on what to buy when offered so many choices. By limiting the choices to a few in each category, he felt it would be easier for these folks to chose which battery to buy.

    You brought up an excellent point, Anna. I recall a situation where spare batteries were being transported in a compartment in a bag and apparently came into contact with a metal zipper or something else metalic, which cause the battery to short out and explode. The user blamed it on the company who sold the battery to him (Provape). It turns out this was the result of user error: Always keep batteries in a plastic battery case to prevent contact with metalic objects. Battery explodes in bag

    Those were mech recommendations.

    And appear to be based on the assumption that everyone who uses a mechanical mod will put a very low ohm build in it, which isn't true. I run mech squonkers exclusively, but I've never built below 0.5 ohms, and am more typically up around 0.75. So I run HG2s, 30Qs, and VTC6s almost exclusively.

    Oops. Thought it was the regulated one. They're next to each other and I must have misread the teeny tiny print again.
