RE: What did you get today?
My cells are 3500 MaH - I can drop to 1 amp when charging my 18650s. It has four settings - .5 1 1.5 2 ... Rioght now at .5 it takes five-six hours to charge the bloody cells!! And I use them in my regulated and my mechs ... I am spoiled yes.

And Tin ... I will trade something for that Haze ... it will be my third one!!! I have two already.

RE: What did you get today?
It seems after a bit of Googling that these are Chinese cells - Aspire have apparently set up  their own factory.

I really hope they aren't actually ICR cells - Lithium Cobalt cells that is.

I'm reckoning the name was devised by a marketroid who didn't know what ICR meant. At least I very much hope this is the case. 

Personally I wouldn't buy for vaping any cell with ICR in its name. But there are no reports of these things kabooming violently which "real" ICR tells have a nasty tendency to do.

So I hope they have fired their marketing department - the cells appear to have been round a while so it's not as if some moron hasn't had time to run them on a mech with a stuck switch at 0.00000001 ohms.

RE: What did you get today?
There are two common types of lithium ion cells - ICR - lithium cobalt which tend to be of higher capacity, higher internal resistance and capable of lower currents. And IMR - lithium manganese cells, lower capacity, lower internal resistance, higher current capability.

This isn't entirely true as there are various "hybrid" technologies.

From what I've read Aspire's marketing team have shot themselves in the foot there - they appear to be hybrid cells like the Samsung 25R cells. So using ICR in the name was just plain stupid.

Aspire have too much to lose by putting dangerous crap out there.

So they'll be fine.

Sorry if I gave any other impression.

Well I don't want to get to technical but my understanding is that alcohol is a solution.
