    I've always used purple 18650 effest button tops with my provari. My coils are usually around 1.2-1.5ohms and the device typically doesn't allow me to go above 5.2-5.4 volts. Is this battery dependent or coil dependent? I'd like to vape at 5.6 but the provari protection kicks in.

    I figure I might be able to get higher voltage without the error code if I use a higher rated battery?

    Also, my current efest batteries are about a year old and it's time to swap them out. Suggestions on good brands for provari v2.5's are welcome.

    Thanks

    Hi J,
    Provari 2.5 has a 3.5Amp limit and a 15 watt limit imposed by the chip set.
    Stay within those parameters for avoid error messages.
    As long as your battery is rated above 5 amps it should be safe.

    Perhaps something like :18650 Samsung 3000mAh INR18650-30Q High Discharge Button Top

    So, using the higher-amperage rated samsung battery will not allow me to use my device with higher voltages than my current efest battery?

    My current atomizer is reading 1.8. I'm getting E2 message at 5.4 volts. That would make my amperage draw at that voltage 3 amps - below the 3.5 limit. Even at 6 volts I should only be drawing 3.33 amps. Unless the ohm readings are off, which is possible...

    The samsungs have a lower mAh rating than the efest but a higher discharge rating. I might be better off staying with the efest if the higher discharge won't allow me to vape at a higher voltage.

    Thanks

    Correct.
    Those are the limits of the chip set. 3.5A/15W.

    You also have a 15 watt limit.

    With the 1.8Ω coil and 5.4V the PV2.5 is being asked to produce 16W.
    Efest is NOT a battery manufacturer. They buy cells and re-wrap them. You may not be able to trust what "efest" has printed on the label.
    I suggest you use batteries made by companies that also make good TV's; Sony, LG, Samsung, Panasonic.
    The vendor linked above sells genuine batteries from all of these brands.

    @Izan has given you useful information about the power limitations of the Provari 2.5 chipset.

    I guess you didn't like my answer in your other thread:
    Best battery for long vape time? Provari 2.5

    "Your primary problem will be finding a button top battery, which the Provari 2.5 requires. AW had always been the top choice for button top batteries and solely recommended by Provape, but AW stopped manufacturing batteries a year ago when their plant was destroyed in a flood.

    You also want a" high drain" battery, preferably one with at least a 10 amp continuous discharge rate. That was the recommendation by Provape on the old Provape website.

    The preferred manufacturers (Lg, Samsung, Sanyo, Sony) don't make a button top battery straight from the factory; the button tops are added in the aftermarket. You might find a button top Samsung, Lg, or Orbtronic battery at one of the major battery suppliers listed below. Otherwise you may need to "settle" for the purple button-top Efests which are "re-wrap" batteries with exaggerated battery specifications.
