Quick question. Does a vamo v3 use a 18650 flat top or button top?

    About to order my battery from RTD vapor. I have already pick up the nitecore charger from amazon. Only thing holding me back is whether I should get a flat top battery or button top. Here are the batteries in question.

    Still deciding which brand to go, but here are my options.

    1) Panasonic NCR18650PD hybrid 2900mAh.
    Flat top- Batteries : Panasonic High Drain NCR18650PD Hybrid 2900mAh Flat Top
    Button top- Batteries : Panasonic High Drain NCR18650PD Hybrid 2900mAh Button Top

    2) Panasonic Hybrid IMR CGR18650CH 2250mAh 3.7V
    Flat top- Batteries : Panasonic Hybrid/IMR CGR18650CH (Out of stock)
    Button top- Batteries : Panasonic Hybrid/ IMR CGR18650CH Button Top

    3)AW IMR 18650 2000 mAH
    There is only one with 2000mah, so I dont even know if its flat or button.
    AW IMR 18650 2000 mAh

    *** 4) Extra contender, The Panasonic High Drain NCR
    Batteries : Panasonic High Drain NCR18650PF Hybrid 2900mAh Flat Top

    (All recommended by members of this forum.)

    This is going to be my first time dealing with RTD Vapor, any insight on their customer support and shipping speed? Might be looking to pick some other stuff too. My order just shipped from Fasttech, so hopefully everything will come together in time.

    thanks for your help forum!

    RTD is fantastic to deal with. I think you can use either button or flat top, but I am no expert. Maybe someone more experienced will come along shortly & correct me if I am wrong. Good luck & VAPE ON:vapor:

    The Panasonic CGRs are excellent batteries to use in the Vamo. I use flat tops and do not have any button tops to know if the button tops would work though.

    I would personally choose option #1 in flat top from what you have to choose from. I know that those will work well.

    There are charts around the web that show a comparison between the AW and the Pannys, the Pannys outperform the AW hands down :)

    in a vamo v3 right? If so Im gonna /close thread with the conclusion that both flat top and button tops work, and go with a coin toss.

    Yes, they should both work just fine. I use the Panny CGR's and the AW's from your list. Those two would definitely make my top three best IMR high drain battery list, the other being the MNKE's. RTD vapor is a great place to get batts from. I would almost always choose the AW's for any regulated APV, probably, with the Pannies a close second.
