    Hello everyone. I've been vaping REOS Mods for years, and always went with the batts Rob recommended. The AW IMR 18650 and the 18350 button tops. But those have not been available for some time now. I would need stackable 18350 and single 18650 button tops for mech mods.
    Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks, Papaw.

    I haven’t bought a button top in years but for an 18650 I would go with this...

    Samsung 25R Button Top - 18650 2500mAh 20A Battery - INR18650-25R

    18350s are becoming like hens teeth lately. Here’s Moochs 18350 chart, not sure which can be found in button tops but it’s a place to start.

    I don't have a REO. But, my ProVari 2.5s require 18650 Button Tops too, and Provape recommended the same AW IMR 18650. Maybe the REO isn't as finicky about battery length as the ProVari. Because I was having a hard time finding cells that would work I invested in a caliper. The AW IMR 18650 is 65 to 65.5mm. I bought some Samsung INR18650-30Q which are about 1mm longer and won't work in the ProVari. Fortunately, I've got other PVs that'll take 'em. But finding cells for the ProVari is a challenge. I won't buy again unless they give the dimensions in the ads. The caliper is great to have in my toolkit.

    If you take your caliper to your battery, be sure the caliper's forks are insulated!!! I just used some adhesive tape, then zero the device.

    For provaris specific minis with extension caps I use a magnet on top of flat tops. No issues there either.
