18650 batteries

Recommended Posts

I bought a T75 kit which came with batteries and a charger which seem to be reasonably poor quality and don’t hold charge for long.  Any suggestions for alternatives? Thks

I use Samsung 25R 18650 batteries for my vape and a “nitecore i4 “ intelligent 4 slot charger 

they last gooding enough in my vape . But saying that I still have 4 sets 😂

Its quite likely to be an issue with a cheap charger, so buying more batteries might not do you a lot of good. I say this because my Nv rigs run on 18650 batteries and users who charged them with cheap torch chargers had issues until they bought a better charger.

 

These are a dang good charger - and will serve you well if it turns out the battery IS faulty.

👍👍👍  I just have the big brother to this one !!!  Good bit of kit ...

it does get quite hot tho but it has done this since day one and 9 months later still gets just as hot and is used every day .. all I do is prop it up on the cable side with a empty 18650 battery case ! Bit of extra air flow never hurt anything .... just never !!!  leave these little bombs unnatended !!! That’s the only advice I will give you ..! 

Also one thing to look for is .. my IR torch used the button top 18650 .. but my vape takes the flat top 18650 and one is maybe 2mm longer than the other so make sure if you do buy more you buy the correct style 👍👍

Just to add .... I’m sat next to my mate and he uses “Samsung 30Q”  which are pink rapped batteries ... these are 3000mah but are a smaller 20A rated .... Were as the 25R are 2500 mah but are 35A rated 👍
