    Hi everyone,

    I am pretty new in vaping scene and I had a question about batteries.

    Is is possible to use a 5000mah 18650 battery in any removable battery mod ?
    I am planning to buy a mod with removable battery and wanted to know if I can fit a 5000mah battery for long lasting power.

    Thanks!!!!

    C2C80BBD-DF5C-40EE-BE63-4F630457A6B2.jpeg I don’t believe they make a 18650 battery with 5000 mah. Take a look @Mooch battery chart recommendations.

    No, because there is no such thing as a 5000 mAh 18650. If someone tries to sell you such a thing, they are misrepresenting it.

    Moreover, if such a cell did exist, it would have an exceedingly low discharge rating, and it would not be suitable for vaping, because vaping generally requires fairly high current.

    There are no 5000 mah batteries.. suitable for vaping.. unless you do that vaping at less than 3 amp draw.

    Buy batts based on amp rating your vape requires.... mah is a secondary consideration. If u our battery can't Handle the load won't matter how many mah they have.

    If you want 5000ma worth of removable battery it can be done but it requires a multiple battery mod.

    @Timshon111 Two blogs you should read to get you up to speed:

    Battery Basics for Mods: The Definative Battery Guide for Vaping
    • A popular and essential read to understand which batteries are safe to use in mechanical and regulated mods. Includes a frequently updated list of recommended safe-chemistry, high-drain batteries with their specifications.

    Are You Using a Rewrap (Rebranded or Aftermarket) Battery?

    • Learn what a rewrap cell is. If you are using rebranded cells, does that mean it is inferior, poor quality, or even dangerous? Which batteries are suspected to be rebranded batteries?

    I believe either Trustfire or Surefire or Ultra Fire make a 5000mah battery, but you don't want to use any battery with FIRE in the name. The rating is exaggerated (probably only 3000mah if that) and they have a bad reputation of making fire. Should only be used for flashlights.

    :evil:

    That direct post got badly cropped, at least it does when I view it. Always best to just post the link. It ensures they get the latest version too as that directly posted table will be obsolete and whenever I update the table.

    My 18650 ratings table has a large number of cells on it and is probably a better overview for what’s available.

    Never to be critical of you, Mooch, but if this is the ratings table that you are speaking about the lettering is far too small to be legible, at least on the computer screens that I use.

    EDIT: Never mind. I just figured out if you click on the image it enlarges it a lot. :blush: Duhh.

    I have the line of bold red text saying to click on the table thumbnail to get the full size table but you are not the first person to try to read just the thumbnail. I think I’ll have to remove it.

    Edit...nvm...too much trouble for me to deal with as adding a thumbnail is easiest. I enlarged the text though.

    I would plead that I am red colorblind and missed it, but that wouldn't be the full truth. :blush:
