usage question for batteries
I have 2 pairs of 18650s and I vape on one set until Sigelei 150 (standard) stops hitting then I slap in the other pair. Read that you should not take them down that far. With this setup I usually charge a pair a day and so far, after 2 months, seems fine. Is it wrong to drain them this far?
I also notice the mod may stop firing, but if I set it down for a minute, it will hit again. It usually shows about 20 to 25% life on display when I switch out batteries...

RE: usage question for batteries
I'd say, if the mod stops firing, it is a little past the optimal time to swap out the cells. Their voltage will recover a little which is why you'll get a few more puffs when you let the mod stand for a bit.

Since mods are usually conservative about cutoff voltage it won't harm the cells most likely.
