I’m not the most experienced in the vape tech field, but I’ve recently bought a VooPoo Drag X2 that I need to buy a battery for, so could use some advice!
Currently, I prefer a RDL style and I use 50/50 5-10mg vape juice, so I will most likely be using the 0.6Ω coils on about 20W.
I’m looking for a battery that will safely give me the maximum lifespan/mAh, but I’m also concerned that if I were to use the 0.15Ω coils on the devices maximum 80W, that the desired battery for the afformentioned use case might be dangerous.
So in my mind, it’s a throw up between getting the best battery for my use case or finding a suitable battery that could safely handle all usecases for my device. In either situation, what would you reccomend? Or if I’m completely barking up the wrong tree, please let me know why!
Okey dokey, I don’t think a single person here would disagree with me on opting for Molicel batteries. Well @JoelSq might in order to be as contrarian as possible.
The link I’ve included is for the P28A - This is available in any reliable vape retailer/wholesalers. I only use the P42A myself as I only use 21700 batteries. Although, my batteries have a much higher lifespan when compared to mods - on battery fails during the time it took 19 mods to die it would be 1.
I was looking at Molicell batteries myself, but I was wondering why you suggest this one in particular. Other than it being reliable, which I would assume be more down to the brand, than the specs?
for instance, would the Molicel M35A (18650/3500mAh/10A) also be a good bet? As I was considering this before given my 0.6Ω 20W usecase, being that it has more mAh and would still (as long as i’ve done the Ohms law correctly) give the amp output i need?
However, the P28A you suggest (if my calculations are correct), would cater for the maximum Amp potential of my device at 0.15Ω 80W. So is that why you suggested?
When you hit the fire button, every battery has a drop in its standing voltage. All things being equal, the higher amp battery will have less voltage drop.
Mooch our battery god also has a simple rule that says a battery is safest when you do not exceed 3 times his/its Amp value.
So the P28A would be a good battery for up to 75 watts usage, while the M35A up to 30 watts. If you were to use any coils other than the 0.6Ω, your mod won’t blow up but will run out/sag quicker than using a battery with higher amps.
I hope that makes sense. Your choice should depend on your expected uses.
Luckily the others just confirmed my point, though without the satirical air.
Obviously, we are always here to help. We only ask that others are clear in their questions: We get things like ‘what is the best custard?’ or ‘which tobacco do I use?’ both lead to excessive eyerolling. As custard and tobacco testing has been going on long enough to be close to when I had hair. And, as the resident wizard, I can play around with hundreds of tobaccos to make a blend.
I can appreciate that, I suppose I assumed (perhaps wrongly) it was just a cut and dry matter of electrochemistry, rather than something opinionated. For future Improvements in my questioning, how do you think I should have posed it?
Well if it is related to devices, then name the device in question, the problem in question and then listen to all views and query further, if needed.
When it comes to recipes, be specific about what you are working on: Asking ‘what is the best cola?’ Is just a request for all to share every proprietary step around a flavour for free - Many of us don’t include certain things in the recipes we share to ensure that how to make a labour of love can only be done by that person.
