RE: is less sometimes better?
The guys have already given you the best advice. There is a good Battery Article in the FAQ section as well. It will give you information on how to work safely with your batteries. I too buy my batteries from Amazon, along with other vaping items, like VG, PG, wraps, battery cases and chargers.

I've been waiting to post and comment on your title as "FAQ Referral Expert" Smile

I suppose it's more accurate than a "stoned panda"! Smile I'm no panda...no wait...I'm no panda, no wait.... I'm not stoned....hmmmm if I was, how would I know???? Smile

I just now noticed it. Didn't sleep last night. It's good to be an expert. Heck, without the FAQs I would have been lost. I was think Spaztic Poster might be more accurate. Thanks guys for give me a title. Maybe I need wear a lovely crown when posting.

Bibs, an expert doesn't wear a crown....maybe a tiara for ceremonial events and milestone events but not for daily use....so stop practicing your wave! Smile

What a daft question to ask - not mentioning any names by the way but a kind of metal and a bit of a cat come to mind[Image: tongue.gif].

Not exactly. Any of the high-end batteries will be fine. There are 18650s with lower amp limits, some around 5A, others around 10A, and the best ones are around 20A, with the Sony maxing out around 20-25A. Those lower ones (5A, 10A) should only be used in low-power mods, or flashlights if that's your thing (we have several users, myself included, who enjoy high-powered flashlight modding which in some cases can use low-amp 18650s). 

The main thing to worry about if you want to know which batteries to use is learning to use Ohm's Law. With Ohm's Law, you can calculate the amps used by a coil at a certain wattage and resistance, so you know to use a battery with a higher amp limit than that. So for example, if you want to use a 0.5 ohm coil at 50W, using Ohm's Law that equals 10A, meaning that coil at that wattage will draw 10A from the battery. So as long as your battery is above 10A, that combination would be fine. On the other hand, if you want to use a 0.2 ohm coil at 80W, that equals 20A so you'd need a battery with a 20A limit for that. 

Here's a link to an Ohm's Law Calculator if you want to play around with the numbers. But it doesn't hurt anything to use a battery with a higher amp limit than you need, so we usually just recommend people get the best so you'll have room to grow and use it however you want without needing to get new batteries if you decide to change your coils to a different resistance.

The Samsung 25Rs that you ordered are among the best, so you'll be fine. Just wanted to give you a quick crash course on Ohm's Law in case you find it interesting or for future reference Smile
Thanks for that. I'm familiar with ohms law, was an electrical apprentice for a while, so I'll definitely keep this in mind. And how do you mod a flashlight? Having a bright flashlight at my job is something with showing off time to time.
