Efest battery question
I have a efest IMR 18650 3500mAh 20A 3.7v battery. Question is that I was wondering what the highest wattage is safe with this battery? Thanks in advance.

RE: Efest battery question
There's no definitive info yet as to what cell efest re-wrapped but it's likley a Samsung 30q. 
Over 50w will deteriate the battery quite quickly, significantly reducing the cycles it's capible of. 

What are you putting it in? If it's mech the lowest you want to go is .2 for the best longevity/performance.

Matrona,

You should really read this article from the FAQ Section before buying anymore batteries, Which Batteries Should I Use

RE: Efest battery question
This makes me feel mad knowing that I was given a battery from a vape shop that was no good. When I asked for the best battery. Thanks for the info. Do efest battery explode? Or are they just not the best battery.

Don't panic! It just means they are "suspect" because of re wrap. It could be fine. I had some efest ones before and did not have any problem. I do not use them anymore after what I read here, though.

RE: Efest battery question
It will be a good battery in the pico and is a good cell. efest mostly wrap decent stuff, but the claims on the side of it about mah and A rating are completely fictitious.
