    Hey Bruce!
    I'm purchasing an Ali'i 3.7/6V mod and Ryan has linked your site for purchase of batteries/accessories. I'd like to go with IMR's for 3.7V(18650), but I'm curious what you recommend on this mod wrt 6V(16340)? I know Those boxes can be pretty tricky wrt battery selection so I don't want to screw this up. Thanks!

    If you want to go 3.7v, get the IMR High Drain 18650 battery. If you want 5v, 2 x Cr123A at 3v each or better 2x LiFePo4 CR123A at 3v. The LiFePo4 are very safe...and are 3v.

    Is Tenergy LIFEPO4 x2 good for 6v vaping? I'm a 6v virgin and not sure what's good.

    Great for 6v vaping and just about the safest chemistry. They don't vent oxygen when they get too hot so they are not supposed to explode or cause fire if they do start fast venting.

    Any more this is the only battery that I will stack and the only battery I now use in my headlamps that take lithium batteries. I don't want anything dangerous close to my face or eyes, especially if it is something I have control over.

    What batteries would I use to vape 5 volts on the GGTS w/UFS? It doesn't look like you have the smaller size batteries in stock?

    You have a choice. You can use the 5v Battery or wait a few days, I will be back in stock in my Tenergy CR123A 3.2v for a 6v vape.

    Considering the 4.8 volt battery needs it's own charger - and I certainly don't need extra chargers lying around - I think I'll wait it out. I'll probably also need standard resistance atomizers and maybe now I'll be able to get a tripcoil :)

    Can I charge the tenergy 3.0v batteries (LifePO4) RCR123A in my trustfire WF-188 multi charger? Also these batteries are advertised as 3.2 but say on them 3.0V am I missing something?

    Hi Casual, yes on the WF-188. I will change the 3.2 to 3.0v since Tenergy has changed their packaging. The fully charged volts is about 3.2v and then it settles down to 3v.

    I thought it was a mistake cuz the picture on the website had it as 3.2. I am psyched to try 6v vaping. Only problem is I just got this terrible cold so maybe I'll hold off...thanks Bruce!

    I have a question about batteries....

    Are the COV 10440 350mAh 3.7V batteries the same size as the AW 10440 batteries? Are they as good, will they fit in a mod that takes AW 10440 batteries?

    I am ready to place an order Bruce, as I want a few other things from your site, but really need to know about these batteries before I place the order. I did send you a "ask a question about this product" message from your web site too, so hope to hear from you and thanks in advance! :)

    Yes, the same size. But they are different. Mine are IMR High Drains. AW does not make a IMR High Drain battery in 10440. AW's is Li-Ion.

    Are all batteries new? I have had bad experience with some vendors sending me DOA batts.

    All are new. If they are DOA, that is how they came to me and I will replace them.
