    srry my english is kind of bad

    Hello, I am fairly new to vaping, and yesterday I got my KangerTech Evod Pro. As in the description it says I need a 18650 Battery, Which I bought one today. I placed the positive side first of the battery ( It is right). I can't put back the cap on because the battery is like a little high. It fits in perfectly with the vape, its just that I can't put back the cap on. Please help.
    the battery I have is an Ultrafire BRC 18650 3000mAh 3.7V li-ion. PLEASE HELP.

    Does this battery have a button top?

    Most batteries we use for vaping/devices take flat top batteries.
    Search this forum for Mooch, he has lists of tested batteries for vapers needs.
    If your using the 1 ohm coil that came in the Evod pro kit, most likely any battery Mooch approved to be 10 amp and above ( see what has highest Mah) would be acceptable. You will see low amp/high mah and high mah/low amp choices. But almost never both high amp/high mah. Thats just the way these batteries we use are.

    Your device/mod does not require a 30 amp battery. Not that you can't use one but its just not needed in this case.
    Look for something on his charts that you might have available to you locally or order from a approved vender if you can.
    Good luck

    There are only a few actual true battery manufactures, Sony,Samsung.LG,Panasonic, and everything else is re-wrapped and re-branded cells that didn't meet the standards of the original manufacturer, not unusable, just not grade A.
    Anything you buy re-wrapped could be anything, and these companies exaggerate the batteries Amp and Mah most of the time.
    Button Top and Protected batteries are not used for vaping, they are too long.

    I would say no- anything labelled Ultrafire should not be used for vaping. It will likely work, but... likely is a bit dodgy.

    No.. that is the wrong battery.
    From Kanger:"Battery: single 18650 cell with at least 20A discharge (not included)"

    In the EU/UK: NKON |
    Rest of world: NKON |

    I would suggest the Samsung 30Q or the Samsung 25R.

    I use the Samsung 25R, as my usual vaping battery. There are almost no mods using button top batteries anymore, and it's not going to fit in your mod, so you can't use it. I suppose the good news on that is you shouldn't use it anyway, it's not an authentic battery from a trusted vendor. I would purchase new batteries (maybe get a couple, so you can rotate them, and have one charged to bring with you.

    You may be pleasantly surprised at pricing. Most of the authentic battery vendors aren't gauging prices like vape shops or other vendors. You also are going to need/want an external battery charger, it is highly recommended that you don't charge removable batteries using the USB port, for many reasons, including wear and tear on the USB port, poor design for charging that can lead to uneven battery charging and oveheating the batteries while charging. I use a nitecore intellecharger two bay, and I like it quite a bit. It won't break the bank.

    That is not an appropriate battery for your regulated mod.

    First off, Ultrafire batteries have a poor reputation as far as quality is concerned and very often exaggerate their battery specs. Don't use any battery with "fire" in its name.

    That particular battery is "protected", which may interfere with the protection circuitry of a regulated mod. Protected batteries also are longer in length than unprotected batteries because of the protection chip. You need an "unprotected" high drain battery.

    This battery is designed for use for flashlights, not for an e-cig. It's a high capacity battery (high mAh). You want a high drain battery (high amperage -- 15 to 30 amps continuous discharge rate). I couldn't find the continuous discharge rate (amps) for this battery, but it is likely under 6 amp continuous discharge rate, far too low for a regulated mod.
