where to buy batterys
hi
I am looking to buy a couple of 18650 batterys for my mech mod
could you point me in the right direction please on where to buy a good genuine battery
thanks

on a separate note I have been reading about  charging batterys and how it can go wrong
I have a wooden box with a lid about 16 inch square
if I plasterboarded the inside of the box and sealed the joints with fire mastic would it be ok to charge my battery in
I wouldn't be going out and leaving it unattended but if anything went wrong it would be contained
I don't know about lack of airflow and heat though or any other problems that might arise

RE: where to buy batterys
Well if you are going to be getting into re-buildables I would go with these batteries. Sony 30amps You still need to be very careful about not shorting your builds but these will rock pretty much anything.

If you are not going subohm and want to run protected batteries these Sanyo 2,600 batteries are great for vaping with.

I'm not to sure about the box but them I'm really not the guy to ask. I have about 10 different chargers going all the time and they are spread out here and there all over the house. I think that FT sells a fireproof bag for charging in actually. I really should invest in something and clean up my act. To_take_umbrage

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

RE: where to buy batterys
Ecolux shop on ebay for uk supplies or torchy the battery boy big_f_d_d depending on how silly you want to get with resistance will dictate what you can amd cant use. Sony vct4 cells are pretty safe in that they'll fire almost anything without going bad. If your confident of your builds and can check and confirm the resistance they come out at I love Panasonic ncr18650pf cells. Their good down to .6 ohm and give you 2900mah capacity. One cell is good for a couple of days for me.

Charger wise. Dons just linked and interesting charger that ecolux shop sells. It can test your cells by carrying put a charge cycle then discharge cycle and report back the capacity. This *should* allow you to at least confirm if the cells you have are close to their suggested capacity, if thats the case, it will help to determine if your cells are genuine (mainly an issue with buying aw imrs or efests which can be and are cloned).

I've bought quite a few cells from ecolux shop recently and I'm happy to recommend them to others as the cells I have have been pushed pretty hard without failure or over heating.

For real sub ohm usr I do like Samsung 18650inr 15m cells. You cannot go below .2ohm but they hold their voltage up real good which means you get more voltage to your coils and thus more output.

RE: where to buy batterys
This guy on eBay has some nice stock. As does Torchy. The cells that can handle heavy loads (sub and way sub ohms) are more expensive and have lower capacity in general. My protected 3400mAh Panasonics work fine with devices above an ohm or so. But protection circuits do vary and in general aren't useful for vaping as they tend to cut out at too low a current. My 0.5 ohm atomiser draws between 6 and 7 amps which is with the bounds for a 3400mAh Panasonic. Problem is that lithium cells are not supposed to be sent through the post. Lots do but there is always the chance with overseas ones that they won't arrive.

Would you recommend protected 3400mAh Panasonics for this Lavatube?

Onward.. through the Fog!

Yeah it'll be absolutely fine for a Lavatube. 15 watts shouldn't trip the protection circuit Good

RE: where to buy batterys
Hi and welcome Vivian. I already have an AWT charger and like it a lot - I've not heard of the cells though. I'd love some to test. 

Do contact the admins if you are selling these and they'll set you up as a vendor.

RTDVapor is not always the cheapest but you are guaranteed to get authentic batteries and of the best quality...AND CONUS so shipping is within a few days not weeks or longer
