RE: Could i get some help
Hi synafex. I assume by fairly quick you mean an hour or so?? I use up batteries in around 3-6 hours dependant on use. Sony make a number of batteries, three of which are amongst the best 18650's you can buy! So either you have the wrong type of cells, old worn out cells, fakes or your vaping hard brother!

If you do need new batteries look for;

Sony vtc3, vtc4
LG he2, he4, hg2, hb2, hb6
Samsung 25r

There are others but I'd start there Wink my personal recommendation would be the LG hg2. 
Hope that helps Smile

RE: Could i get some help
i've got the LG hg2 which serves me well , 3 hrs at 40w @ 1/2 charge it will only suport 35w ( this may be mor the mod than the battery )
I also have the samsung 26F , i would not recommend this battery for vape above 25w or below 1 ohm

Burbon comes from Kentucky , scotch comes from Scotland . Others deserve no bottle .

RE: Could i get some help
All single battery mods are a bit of a problem. I have used LGs, Samsungs, Sony and Imren batteries and now sometimes use Aspire. Aspires last the longest. Hereis the thing - it not just the wattage. It is your coil. The lower the ohm the more power you use. At .5 ohm and at 35 watts I can get 5-6 hours of vape. On my .2 - .3 coils the batteries last maybe 3 hours as I'm vaping 40+ watts as well. As for the Samsungs - you want the 25R battery. It is fine. What coil are you using for the Arctic? The .5 ohm coil will be better than the .2 ohm coil for sure. Also define 'fairly quickly'. The .5 at 40 watts should last around 5 hours anyway with moderate vaping. How heavy do you vape?

I use the LG HG2's and I get around 4 hours at around 30w. My solution to the lifespan is to have 12 cells so I really never run out. Good

At 80-85 watts into .22 ohms, I kill two to three fully charged PAIRS of 18650's a day, lol.  You don't have a bad battery, you have a mod that only uses one.  You simply need more capacity.  Keep a charged spare handy to switch out, or just take advantage of the pass-thru charge feature on your eVic.  Alternatively - get a mod that has dual batteries or a larger internal battery.

Stick with Samsung or LG
Too many fake Sony batteries out there to be sure your getting genuine Sony.

LMAO - good catch.  For some reason I thought the OP was using an eVic.  Dunno why I had that in my head.

Regardless, the answer is a new set of LG/IMREN/BrilliPower/etc batteries.  Smile
