    Hey all, just a quick question, I have two married Samsung 25r5's, I used in a box mod i sold, their probably 4 months old or more. Would it be safe to separate them and maybe start using one of them in a stingray x i have. Nothing crazy just a .5ohm lemo 2 on top. Just hate to throw them out.

    As long as your using them in a single battery configuration and the wrapper is in tact, you should have no problems.

    Just be careful in general with mechs.

    Divorced batteries can go on to live happy productive lives on their own.

    Haha ok thanks guys. I used mech mods exclusively for the first two years of vaping. So im pretty aware of what im doing. Just never had a set laying around like this.

    Unless you rode them hard, they should have plenty of life left.

    And they're "married" to each other... not a particular mod.
    And even that can be dissolved.
    It just means they were (should have been) charged to the same level, and discharged together. Nothing more.

    If you have or plan to get another dual cell mod, use them in that.
    If you prefer to use them as singles... split 'em up. There's no pre-nup. :p

    My RX may unfortunately expire soon :( and my two Utah sets may become a pair of pairs and a couple of singles (one from each set). :D

    as long as no kids were involved.... batteries that have to pay alimony and child support dont function well... ;)
