    Can someone point the way to a good 21700 battery and a site that sells good but inexpensive batteries. I'm about to get a new mod that takes one 21700 battery. The only ones I have are a married pair I use in my Voopoo X217. If I break them up for the new mod I'll need at least a pair to replace them or maybe I should get four so I have a backup pair. Thanks for any help!

    Mooch's blog has all you need to know about selecting the right battery.

    I just bought a pair of those last week from Liion Wholesale. They're .26 cents more there. I tend to buy from the same vendors to keep my card number from being all over the place. I think they must've recently (in the year or so since I last purchased from them..) added PayPal to their payment options. I used that instead of Blurring https://dnt.abine.com my card, which would've cost me an extra 2 bucks. In the end, the batteries + shipping comes out to about 10 bucks apiece. 10 bucks for a good battery doesn't shudder me given that I'll use it for at least close to 2 years and I'll sleep better at night.. :thumbs:

    eta: Note that in Mooch's battery chart, he listed this battery as 25A from his testing, I realized that when I chose it, as 25A's still leaves a lot of overhead for my uses. In fact, I would've gotten the 30T as it's a bit more than a dollar less, but the maH's won out..

    I'm ashamed of admitting that I don't know what I'm looking for in Mooch's blog. It's all another language when I check it. I have no clue what I should be looking for either.

    Anise,

    Just grab the Samsung 40t or 30t.

    The 30t is a Dollar, and 1000mah, less.

    They are both solid batteries, with good amp ratings, and tend to be a little bit less expensive than the super-popular batteries.

    Correction: the 30t is 35amp (as per Mooch) and the 40t is 25amp (as per Mooch). Might as well get the extra 1000mah for a Buck, right?

    Watch his videos on youtube, especially the "Minding your mAh's" and "Battery Basics" ones, that may help you learn another language. :cool:

    I haven't been keeping as up to date as I should on Mooch's tests, but I'm aware of a few good things he had to say about Molicels' cells. Even though this is a 21700 opposed to a 18650, I'm still skeptical when a manufacturer (or re-wrapper in this case) states an AMP limit above 35.

    Mooch tested the P42A and gave his approval on it.

    The Molicel seems a dammed good battery, it has a low Internal Resistance which makes it more efficient.

    @bigbob2322 I've heard that they certainly beat Samsung's 21700's, but they do have a larger diameter which can cause issues with certain mods.

    Darn. I should've gotten two of these then. A buck and a quarter cheaper and more mAh's, and way more headroom than I need.

    Yes you are correct I guess I'm lucky because they fit in my devices without issue.

    That is better, especially at that price.

    The sizing is the issue: if it works for you then great.

    I have had problems with non-standard sized batteries in the past.

    I’ll stick with the Samsungs.

    Makes you wonder if the Molicel's will play nice with the Hadron?
