    There hasn't been too much talk lately about batteries so I wanted to put up a poll so I could see what is being used these days. The competing brands seem to be Panasonic, Efest, and AW...but perhaps there are more.

    I've been using the Efest 18500 mainly, but will switch to the Panasonic 18650 with the extension cap. I still have two AW 18490's in rotation but I doubt I'll buy them again due to the price and performance of the Efest.

    The poll will most likely be skewed toward AW as that's the brand carried by ProVape but I'm interested in the results anyways.

    Wow that's a lot of batteries.

    I have 4 AW 18650 that I got from Lighthound. I use a Tripp Lite dual charger.

    I got crazy and bought a ton of different sizes thinking I would make style different mods and go crazy with the idea. So far 3 mods in but enjoy tinkering around with power tools :)

    I have four 18650 AW IMR's in rotation. Also 2 18490 AW IMR's charged and ready for when I want to go shorter w/o the extender cap.

    My backup Silver Bullet can share the 18650's. My other backup BB has 3 14500 AW IMR's.

    I use a Pila charger.

    I have always preferred the AW brand, because they are generally always available, tests have shown that their performance is top notch, and its what Provape strictly recommends.

    I avoid anything with the name "Trust" in it. I've had one of those "protected" batteries go thermal before.

    I use AW IMR's, not because Provape sells them but because I have been using them for the past 2 and a half years. That is about a year before I got my first Provari. I used them in my diy box mods also.

    AW IMR have had zero issues, some still going strong after 10 months.

    I used AWs to start out but after trying a panisonic I will use them from now on. They last 2 x longer

    Panny IMR Hybrids 2250mAh. I get the flat tops (because they fit in all my gear) with a 1mm x 5mm neodymium magnet for a dimple. I also have a couple AW 18490's that I always use in the kicked GGTS, but also sometimes in my Provari with the normal caps.
