      Well, for the month of July (1st to 15th July), I'm dropping prices on my 18650 batteries here on the forum (not on ebay because ebay charges mad fee).

      2x 18650 = Rs 2000 including shipping.

        WOW... this is awesome... i think i have spent a lot of money on bad batteries...i dint know that brand matters.

        so currently i have no battery operated mod but have already placed order from aliexp, FST and EBAY.

        Andy i would love to buy batteries on this discounted amount but please do me a favor man... i dont know much about mech mods.. can you suggest me one which is in between istick 50 and Vamo v8 40W. I dont want any expensive mod.

            Yes, that one is indeed good! My video review on how it is built: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLTlN29JaT4


            A very good sized and hard hitting mod. All the contacts inside are silver plated which helps improving the conductivity. I have that one and vaping on it right now.


            As to your question, if you are also considering tube mods, Nemesis is a good option. I have the Nemesis Copper 1:1 clone and it hits like a mofo too.

              Re: Recommended 18650 batteries?

              are Panasonic batteries any good?
              Yes they are. In fact they are industry leaders in the 18650 class.
              Take the Panasonic NCR18650B.
              Specs are:
              3.7V
              3400mAh
              6-7A of continuous drain, 10 in burst
              Wattage is 5*7=35W, 30W for safety.
              This is very respectable for 1.5ohm coils. Anything above that will murder the battery. this is the only downside.
              The upside is that it is a MONSTER at 3400mAh. You'll easily get a day at 40W and two with around 30W.

                While I agree with you on most things about the Panasonic but a bit NO for mech mods and/or usage with rebuildables. People tend to make all sort of coils and do nasty things. Plus, most mods out there are 50+ watts. There are very few who actually buy 30w or lower wattage mods.

                A better battery would be the LG 18650 HG2 which is 3000 mAH and at the same time, 20A cont discharge, 30A pulsed. (SKU 2535100)

                  Haha, well said. tat's what i meant to say. The Panasonic NCR18650B is no good for sub-ohm vaping. 1.5ohms coils should be fine.
                  EDIT:It actually is comfortable down to 1ohm. Just did the math.

                    Re: Recommended 18650 batteries?

                    Let me interpret; The battery can give 7A , lets say. And batt voltage ( lets assume the nominal ) is 3.7V.
                    So tha battery can only generate 26W.
                    Even if we assume 90% efficiency, the output power can only be 23W. The output power can only be less than the input power ( there will be losses in the SMPS - typically best case scenario when we design is 90%, that too at the nominal current load )
                    So no, you shouldnt use this at 30W
                    BTW, another point to be mentioned is that most mods are variable voltage - so the output voltage is not fixed at 5v The range of course, varies from one mod to another.
                    Of course, i understand what you mean that 5v standard is pretty common - like usb for example Currently in the VLSI industry , the digital supply has gone down to 1.2v or lower, but in some cases 5v support( more often 3.3v ) has to be provided as you have pointed out.

                        LG HE2 are 2500 MAH and I have been using them and selling them since quite some time now. I have pushed them down to 0.1 ohm in "dual 18650" parallel mech mods. Works just fine. Even now using a pair in my Abaddon dual 18650 mech mod. But wouldn't recommend those for such builds since the peak discharge is stated 20A. In single mode, the bats shouldn't be pushed below 0.3 ohm.

                        Perhaps you were asking about the LG HG2, those are 3000 MAH and 20A continuous/30A pulsed. Those can be pushed down to 0.2 ohm but again, let's not push the batteries to their limits or beyond limits. In fact, these are my new favorites

                          HG2 is now quite famous, thanks to Phil who observed that these are lasting him a long time

                            Hello fellow indian vapors, i recently made a switch to vaping and loving it. My first vape was a v2 pro serious 3, i didnt research much at that time and been doing a lot of reading and now entering the box mod setup. I placed my order from FT and used hongkong mail as per the advice i read in this forum and i received it on 30th december 8 days after shipping 14 days after order. But my battery order which was through sweden post has just left the origin country and from what i read it could take about 4 more weeks. In short i need batteries now so i can start using my ipv 3li, AndyK do you have any 18650 battery with you that i can purchase? It would be awesome if i could start using my mod in a couple of days. Thank you,
