Comment: Superb work, thank you. 13k subs and rising.
Another great video, thank you!!!
Looking forward to your next one. I'm not hard on my batteries, but I probably tend to use them longer than many folks (large # of cycles) before replacing them. Interested in what you have on this. Not sure why I do this because in the whole scheme of things, batteries are the least expensive part of my vaping gear. Need to just start recycling them sooner and replacing them with fresh cells. Eagerly awaiting your advice on this topic.
Bravo! Simply Bravo!! Keep feeding me. I'm a sponge. This came out just after I got my first series, two battery, mech. OMG! The voltage sag was horrendous!!! Back to the drawing board. Wonderful to have an understanding of what that really means.
@Mooch would it be possible for you to quickly comment on devices with builtin lipo batteries and charging bags?
I know your stance on regular chargers regarding that, but those devices just keep coming and with events like in that reddit thread about the smok the discussion about bags made a comeback.
Are there any plans for subtitles to your videos? I know of at least some who can't watch them because they don't speak english. If I had a transcript I'd be willing to help (german,french).
Other than that I'd like to thank you for the time you're putting into this, it's very much appreciated
Even when I think I can't learn anything more.. thank you for teaching me about when to charge!
I still use ISticks, so no external batteries, but this tid bit is useful, thank you Mooch!
Thanks Mooch another lovely episode once again, with some great advice! Thank you!
Never use a charging bag for an internal battery mod as it traps in the heat.
Subtitles probably won’t be done as having the translations reviewed and verified takes a lot of time. Doing that for several languages just isn’t practical.
Going easy on them in terms of discharge surely makes a huge difference. I use mech squonkers exclusively, but I'm an MTL tootle-puffer, generally around 0.75 ohms. I have some VTC5s that I got almost 4 years ago that still perform well for me. As good as new? No, probably not,
As an aside, a colleague of mine recently got a PHEV -- a Plug In Hybrid car that can run for some distance on battery power alone. It has an 8.8 kWh battery composed of 96 large prismatic cells in series. The manufacturer warranties this battery for 8 years(!) I was curious how this is possible. Well, with the right diagnostic ("scan") tool, one can query the battery management module in the car and see the voltage of each cell individually. We've done this, both with the battery "full" (the car refusing to accept any more charge) and "empty" (car refusing to run on battery power alone). "Full" is 4.00-4.02V. "Empty" is 3.56-3.58V.
