    Hey guys and gals!! I've been a member here for a long time but I ended up going back to analogs for a while but now I'm back and very glad to see how the vaping community has grown so much.

    When I left, RDAs were just getting popular but most rebuildable fans used genesis attys and hybrids. The community was no where near where it is today!

    My brother just gave me a Sigelei 100w and a couple panasonic 18650's to get me off analogs and I dusted off my Opus D (DNA20). Also, just got a Kanger Subtank Nano in the mail.

    I'm amazed, actually. When I went back to analogs the newest tank out was the protank 2 (I think). I'm glad to see how far we, as a community, have come.

    I'm ordering supplies to start a custom Mod build so keep an eye out in the modders forum!!

    Vape on!

    Glad to see you back! I fell off the wagon myself, but I'm back and I'm solidly off the cancer sticks. No question the vape industry has matured by leaps and bounds, yet I still hold dearly to my mech/RDA combo - what works still works! :)

    One thing I've found: Being back on ECF has been simply wonderful. I can't say enough about the power of a tight community united by their disdain for tobacco. Support groups rock! Welcome back!

    Welcome back into the fold.

    Just curious, which model Panasonic 18650 do you have?

    Panasonic IMR/hybrid:

    CGR18650CH (IMR/hybrid) 2250mAh 10Amps
    NCR18650BD 3200mAh 10A
    NCR18650PF (LiNiCOMnO2) 2900mAh 10A
    NCR18650PD (LiNiCoAl) 2900mAh 10A

    For your high-wattage regulated mods, you'll need a 20 - 30 amp battery. Panasonic doesn't offer one, they are all 10 amps.

    My mistake. I don't think they are Panasonic and I'm having one of those moments where I know the name but cannot, for the life of me, remember what it is.. They are definitely safe (capable of a 30 amp draw) here is a picture:

    Looks like Samsung 25r's which are 20 amp. Still plenty to operate that sigelei.

    Those look like samsungs.. Theyre safe but not a 30 amp continuous. I believe 20. Someone will correct me

    I'm pretty upset with the local vape shop I got these from then. I asked for Sony's but they said these were the only batteries they use now so I bought them. But, if they're only rated for a 20 amp draw then they're practically worthless for my unregulated Mods..

    I guess they're fine for my Sigelei for the time being but I will never be purchasing anything but juice from them in the future
