    Looks like Mooch tested the updated green wrapped Samsung INR18650-25R5 and if I am reading his chart correctly the Samsung INR18650-25R2 performed slightly better?

    I picked up a couple of the AW Red 20A 3000mah batteries as my Samsungs don't appear to be lasting as long between charges even though I rotate between batteries. They are about 8 months old and generally get charged once a day.

    Did you buy them from RTD?

    RTD? Got them from Sweet-Vapes - wasn't aware of RTD (until now). Someone had mentioned that Sweet-Vapes was an authorized reseller of AW and I wanted to make sure I received authentics. I've bookmarked RTD so I have it available for future orders.

    I think you also get 10% off your order if you mention ECF.

    Check the RTD Thread.

    I didn't know sweet vapes was a authorized dealer. I know RTD is.

    They're essentially identical in my testing, just a couple degrees temperature difference that pushed the R5 over to orange caution. One of the downsides of simplifying everything down to a table.

    Nooooo....? I'll check that out. I did see one of the Plumes' videos and they gave him a shout-out, where they were talking about the Brillpower(?) batteries and his testing.

    Yes - haven't had a chance to charge them yet - Will be testing them on the Dicodes 2380T until I get my Provari back from Zen (should be later this week - I'm excited :w00t:).

    I just ordered some of those 3000s from RTD. ECF5 gets you 5%. I have a couple of efest purple 3100s that I got for the mah. Now that I have something that goes over 20w I wanted something I wouldn't worry about. I have 5 of the older AW 2000s and a couple are starting to fade quickly.

    They are awesome. I'm on day 3 on my Provari Radius. It still shows a 1/4 left.

    These or the HG2s would be great in a series box since I don't build any lower than .5ohms.

    I bought two new AW 18350 800 Mah batteries from RTD about 8 months ago and stopped using them .

    I'm convinced they are defective because both do not hold a charge well at all and are completely shot after on/off vaping in half a day .

    They even show half drained on the mods battery indicator after the first few vapes.

    I vape them in an SVD 2.0 at 10 watts , very disappointed.

    Hi Herb
    same here, have been using the 800s for months now and find the old 700s better for charge duration than the newer models.
    I only use them for 8-9 watt vaping and even the old dying 700 does better.
    the new model has a higher drain current rating ,so may be optimised for high drain use , but still..

    I've done a bit of testing, see the link in my signature.
    The VTC5 is a 20A battery and the Tesiyi is 25A. All good performing batteries though! But the Tesiyi can change what cell they use under the wrap at any time without telling us.

    How much current will you be drawing from the battery?
