    Off topic, but Mooch has a video about how to get the most life from your batteries. He mentions something about trying to run them between 20-80%. I have no way to check that (my charger just has LEDs and my multi-meter is cheap analog... I do need a good digital meter for working on cars and it would be nice to use on vape batteries as well) And then there is something about storing batteries... keep them less than fully charged (3.7 volts?) I think this was the video:

      somebody here uses one of those magnetic ones,maybe @SupplyDaddy

      Yep, That's me!

      I use the magnetic style connectors on all my vapes, even my Evolve DNA's that I built have a magetic connector on them. No issues what so ever.

      I have 1 iStick Pico 21700 that I didn't use one on. It's port will no longer hold a charge connection :( it's twin is still going strong!

      However, I do pull out all my batteries now and then and charge them on my Nitecore i4.

            I keep batteries in the mods that are in rotation, and some spare charged batteries on hand. When the batteries in the mods get weak, I put them in the charger and insert the spare batteries in the mod. The charged spares include a single 18650, a married pair of 18650s, one 21700, and three 20700s. I don't know how many I own in total.
