    I could have easily missed them, luckly I read a post (just mentioning them) and decided to check them out...

    well these really look amazing, the best out there for non 18650


    18350 able to fire up to .35ohms
    18490 able to fire up to .24ohms

    this is a game changer for me as I don't like the long 18650 mods but the 18350s were lacking in power and 18490 where my preferred size but still needed a bit extra

    AW IMR 18350 Specifications :

    Nominal Voltage : 3.7V
    Capacity : 800mAh
    Lowest Discharge Voltage : 2.50V
    Standard Charge : CC/CV ( max. charging rate 0.8A )
    Cycle Life : > 500 cycles
    Max. continuous discharge rate : 12A
    Operating Discharge Temperature : -10 - 60 Degree Celsius
    Dimensions : 18.15 x 34.82 (+/-0.05)mm

    AW IMR 18490 Specifications :

    Nominal Voltage : 3.7V
    Capacity : 1200mAh
    Lowest Discharge Voltage : 2.50V
    Standard Charge : CC/CV ( max. charging rate 1.2A )
    Cycle Life : > 500 cycles
    Max. continuous discharge rate : 18A
    Operating Discharge Temperature : -10 - 60 Degree Celsius
    Dimensions : 18.15 x 49.1 (+/-0.05)mm

    Why is the 18350 labeled "15C" if the maximum continuous discharge rate is 12A?

    I can only assume that everyone is using greater capacity, greater maximum discharge rated batteries in 18650 size mods?

    15 x 800 = 12,000 that's 12 amps

    It's going to be short game with those capacity ratings...but cool for people who want stealthier/shorter mod to sub ohm.

    The 15C isn't the amp rating.

    Eh, the capacity kind of makes it so that realistically, the lowest you'd want to go is like.. a .7 or so coil. Battery life, even then, isn't gonna be fantastic. You'll need to carry around a buncha backups for when your battery inevitably dies, which I guess is easier w/ smaller batteries.

    For me, even with a higher resistance situation, the 18350 just doesn't last long enough, and I'm not over-encumbered by my 18650 devices. I mean, I walk around with a 18650 x2 box these days (smaller than an IPV3 tho), and it's fine. Dunno. Not for me, personally.

    Though I do know some friends who will be thrilled about this. Good post, OP.

    I think I'm gonna try my hand at building a dual 18490 DNA40 box mod.

    Just discussed it with a friend, and we could probably get it done for under $120.. Hmmmm. And so, a seed is planted.

    This is great news. The higher discharge ratings isn't all about pushing lower resistance. It should also (in theory) translate to a more efficient battery over-all. Maybe a little more oomph per charge cycle.

    I prefer to carry a battery case in my pocket than to have a big mod in my hand always

    There are small 18650 mods, such as the XXiX which will fit in a shirt pocket easily. And so then you don't need to carry around multiple extra small batteries because one of those 18350's with a decent sub-ohm build will last for about 7 minutes of vaping.

    I'd be building it with a DNA40, and so, I wouldn't be sub-ohming.

    (I also already have 2 dual 18650 box mods.)

    Exactly right, the higher discharge theoretically would equate to less voltage sag and a better vape. IMHO a great vape isn't about how long a battery lasts but how it performs under a load.

    Well, for me, it's sort of like hearing about the release of a new Commodore 256 computer.

    This new tech is epic for the folks that enjoy a smaller, stealthier mod. It's about time smaller batteries got some higher power love. I can certainly see this will create a surge in very small regulated devices, mech devices, and this will be really lovely for tiny squonkers. No down side I can see, this is a win.

    I'm gonna have to sniff out some of those 18350s for my hammer.
    Much better than the efest 8A CD.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I've been using them for a couple weeks in my Reos. I'm very pleased with them.
