    I know that PVA has started selling batts with complete usage info about each batt and its legit.
    Subomcells? I wouldnt bother - those are mostly LG HE2 rewrapped at just higher prices.
    Look bro, when it comes to batts - its samsung, sony & LG

    Great post andyk. Bought my batteries (LG HE2) using your suggestions and they arrived yesterday.

    I charged them yesterday and noticed that at full charge its showing 1500-1600 Mah. I thought it would be as per rating of 2500 mah. Is this normal?

    No, that's not normal. There could be a little variation, like, 2450 MAH instead of 2500 MAH or even a bit lower but that's a whole lot of difference. Are you sure it is showing that low? Should open a ticket on FT. Which charger are you using?

    Thanks Andy. I am using Xtar VC2 from FT. It might be that the charger is showing how much it charged?

    First time i put both in, they charged for few hrs and in the end reading was saying 'Full' with one reading 1650 and other around 1550mah.

    I will check once after fully discharging it and then charging. If its still the same, will write to FT.

    If you put them to charge when u received them, then its ok, since it should be charged to 3.6V or so.
    After using them till low battery on a mod, recharge - at that time it should show the actual capacity.

    I think the problem is coz u let it charge immediately after getting the batts. Generally batts arrive at a voltage of 3.6-3.8 V. So forget what it said. Use it in ur mod once till it completely drains. Then charge em up again and see what the mAH comes up as

    So my order from FT made in november 2015 arrived today with a hefty duty, i made that order before i knew about this forum so i ordered 2 sony vtc4 and 4 samsung 25r with nitecore d4 charger,
    So if the vtc4s from FT works does that mean they are real ones ? Coz andy bhai you said vtc from FT is old stock and they arrive DOA but mine arrived just fine with 3.64v output and charged to about 4.1v. I dont want my palm or face to blow off so need your suggesstions fellow vapers

    Well, FT says over and again that the VTC5 listed (SKU 1659700) are authentic Sony batteries. There has been a massive hoopla about people asking whether those are authentic or not.

    But the thing is, I try to stay away from stuff that create doubts in my mind. By no means I'm trying to say that you got some fake batteries but all I'm trying to say, I'm not too sure if those are really authentic or clones.
