    Hi all, I've been searching all over and can't seem to find out how low to allow batts to discharge before recharging. Obviously, I aim to maximize the life of my batteries. I'm using IMR 18650 30A Orbtronic SX30 Ultra High Drain Hybrids and charging them with a Nitecore i4. Using them in a Sigelei Zmax V5 that will shut down when the voltage gets too low to power it effectively. Does running the batts that far down do any appreciable damage (life-wise) to the batts. At what voltage do those of you using a regulated MOD recharge your batteries?:confused:

    My Provari's fire button begins blinking at around 3.5 volts to warn me the battery level is low. At around 3.4 volts the Provari refuses to fire. This is well above the battery's tolerance to over-discharge.

    You won't harm these batteries unless you get around 2.5 volts.

    Excellent. Thanks Bad! I'll vape until the Zmax quits and check to actual voltage left with a meter just to see how low it'll take them just to see.
