    I was happy with my Proteus even with all the strange behaviors of it, some of them very frustrating. Today I received some new Efest V2 batts and now the Proteus is working like it should be. Now Im ready to go out with the Proteus.

    It looks like keeping the AW for more than one year waiting for the Proteus affected then.

    Proteus will still vape on a short in case the short gives higher resistance than 0,4 ohm Heat. What I mean is that when coil is cold, Proteus detects the resistance. But after you vape for some time 2 coils touch each other and thats what makes Proteus confused.

    thats true Nandy. The 14500 batteries dont last for a long time unused. I throw out 7 of my 12 14500 batteries because of this. The remaining 5 batteries were still not good but decent

    Imeo is correct. AW batteries only last about a year anyway. At least that is what i find. That is all i use is AW batteries. Every since I had the chance to hang out with Bruce from COV, his reply to everyone about batteries was that "AW batteries are the best on the market".
    However, that is just someones opinion, mine as well

    For those who want more precise battery life estimates, at a moderate level of all day vaping (nothing excessive, very low (200-220) temperatures, and between 2-3/ml of juice) you're looking at running through about 4-5 batteries per day.

    For me with the new eFest I feel comfortable now going to work an vape all day. Two days in a row I used the Proteus and stealth vape all day from 9:00 to 6:00 and go through two batteries and three tank refill.

    About the battery drainage is true. Now I always remove batt when not in use

    Message to IMEO

    Sorry for the late reply I am up North with very limited internet I am very impressed with the Proteus so far and it really does not do it justice just seeing it online in person it is a work of art very impressed My wife is already pushing me to give it to her lol I am going to try and do several videos asap on the Cbrillion and Protues and the Til X1 wich have become my favorites now. I new when you where making protues you had a very complicated chip that would be easy to use and that's what I have been seeing around me. Older vapors just starting buying temp control devices then complaining that they have to mess with the settings all the time and they get discouraged and stop vaping. this is not good. I f it was possible to but vir in a device with larger battery capacity I think it would be the best device avaible for vaping to date. Many thanks again and Happy Birthday and thank you for what you do! I think sometimes people forget that "not on purpose" that this is a business for you but also a labour of love as well. Thanks Adam

    Efest's new line with metallic purple colour has accurate amp ratings and apparently are much better batteries.

    They have new 14500 but unfortunately are flat top. Anyone tried them?

    Have you found any reviews/tests for these new Efest 14500 batteries?

    I've read some mixed reviews about the new metallic Efests. The variety of 18650s seem fairly ok, albeit they are at least a bit overrated (as usual).
    The new 18350 seems a bit of a scam as well. Getting hot and voltage droppping fast @6A (rated @7A)

    (sources: mooch's blog here and lygte-info.dk)

    And I couldn't find any tests about the 14500s.
    I'm actually glad that I still got the old ones... but I'm happily awaiting reviews.

    Ah, thx @Fyla.
    I knew the site, but last time I checked they didn't have the new Efests tested yet.
    Now they did - and they seem ok <5A - @5A they seem to perform worse than their older brothers.
    Guess someone needs to give it a try on Proteus (however, messing with magnets instead of button-tops is not recommended/safe afair)

    Old & New Efest, AW @5A

    I hereby confirm that Efest V1 700 mAh flat top 14500 batteries do NOT work in Proteus without a magnet & much fooling around with the adjustable negative contact. They're also a little tight in the tube.

    Do not waste your time and money.

    Finally got my Efest v2 batteries in yesterday. My 3+ year old, never-used, AWs were all red lights when I first got my proteus. Now, with the new efests, I am fully able to admire the beauty and simplicity of proteus. Only problem is lack of airflow on my pene3. I cany't wait to put vir into something with bigger battery capacity and the ability use tileX on top.

    THANKS IMEO!
    What a long strange trip its been
