    Hey, I was considering making a sub-ohm single coil for my igo l, but when i went to use the ohms law calculator, I noticed that i was missing some information. I know they put out around 3.7 volts, and are 2000mah. However I still need to know the current and power. Does anybody have this information about these batteries? I want to make sure that i am within the battery's capability before using them on a sub ohm build. Information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    If I were you I would seriously study battery chemistry and then go top notch or beyond in my choice of batteries to power a sub-ohm system...Because a face is a terrible thing to waste :)

    Your also just tempting fate and karma with a "fire" brand battery IMO

    I think someone in china had either a sense of humor or were prophetic when they named these batteries

    Play it extra safe and get an efest or sony 30 amp battery - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_6_8?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=sony%2030amp%20vtc4%2018650%20battery&sprefix=sony+30a%2Caps%2C245

    I use either the Panasonic CGR18650CH (10 amp CDR) or the AW IMR 18650 with the 2000 mah capacity (10 amp CDR) down to around 0.7 ohms. (4.2v/0.7=6 amps, I like a little breathing room)

    Under that I use the Sony VTC4's (20 amp CDR) and I haven't been under 0.4 ohms, yet, but they should be safe (theoretically) down to about 0.22 ohms

    I don't think I've seen any ****fire batteries that are IMR (or hybrid chemistry) and high drain. You really need to have such if you're going to subohm (and even if you don't). I have Panasonic NCR18650PFs (hybrid, 10A), Sony US18650VTC4s (hybrid, 30A), Efest 18350s (IMR, 6A), and Samsung ICR18650-26Fs (hybrid, 5.2A. Technically not high drain, but enough for the 2.6 amps or so that I draw on my regular clearos on my vw mod). I also have some no name 18350s that I got with an e-pipe and I don't use those. Impossible to know the specs, but unlikely to be IMRs and probably have a very low C-rating. That's the problem with *****fire batteries as well, it's almost impossible to get reliable information on the chemical composition and C-rating of them.
