Mooch is asking for your help

This post is admin approved, thank you!

I want to continue the pace of battery testing I've had the past 16 months but circumstances have forced me to slow down significantly. Equipment wear and loss, along with tight finances, have made it impossible for me to keep going at the same rate.

I am uncomfortable doing this, and I know some of you find things like this quite pathetic, but I have been convinced by others to see how our community responds.

I've set up a GoFundMe page and…

Charger question

Im going to first say that this question is purely for knowledge and wether it would work or not, im not going to try this. If you sodered a 2 inch long wire to the negative side of a battery and a seperate 2 inch long wire to the positive side, could you charge the battery by connecting the negative wire on one slot and the positive wire to the positive slot next to it?

Sony VTC5A additional markings and clearer wrap

I bought 8 vtc5a's from nkon, 5 of which have the same markings that mooch had in his battery test, the other 3 have some additional markings and the wrap is more see through. Just wondering if anyone else has purchased vtc5a's that have the same markings or if they are possibly fakes. Im guessing that they could be a newer/older batch but im not sure.

Battery Charger

Hi, I couldn't find a sub-forum about batteries, so I thought I'd post it here.

Just need your thought on what just came to my mind about battery chargers. So I'm using a regular charger, right. It's rated at 1A, 4.2V output. I'm noticing that the time it took to charge a 50% battery is longer than what it should, compared to charging an empty one (I know it's not completely empty, but empty according to my mod). For example, say the time to charge an empty one is 4 hours, then the time to…

Any problems with slightly sloppy battery rewrap?

Pretty self-explanatory… I had to rewrap some batteries tonight and didn't do my neatest job. I am ONLY asking about cosmetic problems… wrinkles, creases, the like. They're not terrible but a little unsightly. All of the obvious safety concerns are covered; i.e. there are no tears anywhere on the new wraps, insulators have been retained and kept on the battery, etc.

So, other than potential fit problems in my most snug mods, there should be no problems with a few wrinkles in a wrap,…

Looking for high mah batteries for a subohm mod.

Will be using these at about 70w at 0.15 ohm so need at least 25+ amp rating.

Pictures please.

I understand if this is too much of a hassle but if your batteries are nearby could you post some pictures of your current battery lineups please?
I spend so much time examining my batteries I always find something on the negative terminal and will throw them.
I am going through so many but I definitely never over tighten my mods anymore.
I would like to see what you guys are using and hopefully I am being over cautious.
Many thanks
