How are these batteries and charger?
I ordered 4 odec INR 2600mah 18650 batteries and a nitecore i4 charger, currently I'm using efest 3000mah 18650 batteries in my Rx 2/3 with a TFV8 at .15 ohms with the octuple coil setup. I plan on using those batteries in the 2 cell mode and use my efest for 3 cell mode, will these be sufficient for vaping at 150w about 10-12 hours a day? I know I will have to switch out the batteries, but I'd prefer to carry the 2 cell mod with 2 extra batteries than the bulky 3 cell mod when I'm not home. I have the links to Amazon if I'm allowed to post them, I got the batteries on sale for $20 (original $50) and the charger for $25, I think I got a good deal for them, if they're reliable that is. 
Thanks in advance for helping me! Any suggestions for batteries that aren't very expensive will be appreciated! My minimum mah I would like is 2600, but higher is always welcome!

RE: How are these batteries and charger?
There aren't any batteries that are good for vaping at 150W with only two cells. You should use about 50W per cell max, even with the best cells on the market. Unfortunately mod makers care more about people paying for big wattage numbers than actual battery safety, and most mods these days can be pushed far higher than they should be. 

I've never heard of odec batteries. Nitecore chargers are nice though. The only batteries I ever recommend are Samsung 25R, Sony VTC4, LG HE2, LG HG2, or LG HE4. Those are the tried-and-true cells that are safe up to around 20-25A, which is the highest you can reasonably expect from any battery. Most other batteries are either (a) not nearly good enough, or (b) not nearly good enough but marked with higher amp limits to deceive vapers who don't do their homework. That's most others though... Like I mentioned before, I haven't heard of odec, so they might be great. But there's no batteries in the world that should be used at 150W in a 2-cell configuration for extended periods of time.

RE: How are these batteries and charger?
Almost all 200w mods I know of only have 2 cells, and my friend Vapes at about 200w on 3 cells daily, I'm assuming that's not recommended either? All my batteries are 35A, that's what I was recommended as minimum for sub ohm vaping

Welcome to TVF xiTzCriZx!

Good on the i4, a great charger.

There are many threads here on cells - read through them - SAFETY must be your first and second most important priorities - remember your expensive gear is reliant on your cells, not to mention running questionable cells so close to your face.

I don't know odec cells, most of us here will only run with SAMSUNG, LG or SONY.

Glad I ordered a good charger, some reviews on the batteries said people were using them for their mods, i guess I'll do some more research on them, thanks!

RE: How are these batteries and charger?
Here's a more indepth article about batteries from the FAQ Section?
... Which batteries should I use?

You cannot be over educated when it comes to battery safety. Do read the article above. Mistreated or cloned batteries are the cause of most of vaping's bad press. Despite the endless array of 2 cell mods rated to go up 200W, it's just not a sustainable power level. Sorry to sound so negative, but venting batteries are a real danger.

May I ask why you want to vape at 150W +? Just curious, I find anything over 75W is too hot for me, but everyone has a different sweet spot.

RE: How are these batteries and charger?
Sorry for late reply, didn't get the notification of another post. I use a tfv8 with the octuple coil and 75w is definitely not enough for good clouds from it. I get the best clouds and flavor at 150 and its not very hot, if anything it's only slightly warm. Keep in mind it is a .15 ohm and I only use 70-80vg liquid, and only take 2-3 second hits as well.

RE: How are these batteries and charger?
In doing some research many people have said these are great batteries for 50-100 watts, I'm charging them now and i'll use them probably tomorrow.

RE: How are these batteries and charger?
X, I wouldn't touch those batteries. I only buy LG, Samsung or Sony. They been tested again and again, and have been proven to be high quality and safe. You can save a little money and risk battery venting. Please read the battery article I've given the link to. This is the advice of very experienced vapers which I hope you take to heart.
