Marrying batteries question

So I was going to replace 3 of my old batteries in my mod with my other set and I might have mistakenly mixed up one or two batteries. I had not marked them so I have no idea which is which. Since I might be using unmarried batteries, do I have to buy another two sets of batteries? I'm using HG2s. I heard it's dangerous to use unmarried batteries. Is it really that bad if you mix them once?

Do not use the Samsung 26F battery above 5A or 20W!

I'm getting more and more reports of the Samsung ICR18650-26F being sold with high power mods like the Smok H-Priv 220W.

This is ridiculous.

That is a 5.2A-rated battery and it will perform very badly above about 5A/20W. If used in a high power device it could heat the batteries up enough to damage them or even cause them to vent (not thermal runaway though).

Do not use the Samsung 26F at above 5A or 20W per battery.

When is it time to throw out a battery Max voltage wise?

After charging with my Nitecore UM10 may batteries are ranging from 4.12- 4.17 when taken off the charger. Have had these in rotation for 5 months now. They last all day still and i have run them down to 3 volts a couple times because for some reason my eVIC VTC Mini does not tell me wne the batteries are down to 10% like it is suppose to. For the life of me can not figure that one out. But anyways, when is a good time to switch them out? I am using Samsung INR-18650 25R 2500's atm. I have 2…

EnerCig TN26650HP-3400 3400mAh 26650 Bench Test Results…a hard-hitting 25A battery

These cells were donated for the purposes of testing by Nkon (, for the US). Thank you! To prevent any confusion with the ego-type "batteries", I use the term "cell" here to refer to a single 18350, 18650, 26650, etc.

While the test results are hard data, the conclusions and recommendations I make based on these tests are only my personal opinion based on my criteria for setting a rating. Carefully research any cell you are considering…

Silica gel barely helps dry anything!

It's time to put this myth to rest. Using silica gel to help dry a device that got wet barely helps at all compared to leaving the device in open air. In fact, it interferes with the evaporation of any water that is inside.

Rice doesn't work either. Here are the results of my tests using rice:

I set up a test using a paper towel sheet with enough water added to bring its weight to 18 gms. I then put the wet folded paper towel in a slightly ventilated small…

Issue with Vision Spinner 2.

I bought a Spinner 2 on Ebay a week ago. I'm fairly certain it's authentic but I could be wrong. Anyway I had been using it most of the day just fine when suddenly it quit heating the coil. The button lights up as it should, and it powers on and off as it should but it won't heat the coil. And when I plug it into its charger the power button does not light up at all. I've already messaged the seller but they haven't responded yet. I've searched for Spinner 2 problems but never found anyone…

change pico settings?

hey guys, just got myself a little eleaf pico, although i much prefer my invader mini, but needed something a bit more discreet for the office. Im ususally fairly good with this stuff but cannot figure it out for the life of me. After priming the coil and turning it on it switches on in temperature mode with its starter coil. I've found some of the settings but cannot figure out how to switch it to wattage mode for the life of me.

Noob battery questions

So new to buying batterys, the only device I have is a <a href="” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”>provari 2.5 so only low wattage vaping here, usually <7 watts, <2.5 amps

Two questions:


Being that I'm drawing such low amps I ordered some red efest 18490 1100 mah, 8C from IMRBatteries. They don't seem to have anything other than cheap batteries unless it's 18650. They have worked perfectly.

One of the batteries I got had a small black spec on the positive end, I didn't think anything of it at the time (few wks ago) and have…
