    This is a must read for anyone who is using an 18650 battery and really for any battery generally. You must understand that battery safety could be the difference between enjoying your vaping and becoming the next news headline from the emergency ward at your local hospital.

    Great post mate.

    I am a big Samsung 25R fanboy. They are a great batt', with solid spec's, and have served me well over the last year or so.

    Thanks Steve, that was a good read, pretty much echos my sentiments for 18650s.
    I Posted a comment asking his thoughts on 18350s too, so hopefully he'll reply :)

    Id be interested to hear what he says too Noe. I would also like to hear more about 26650's also. I guess it comes down to what he has tested and proven

    Mooch & I have had a bit of discussion on that site :)

    Seems he doesn't know who makes 18350's either.
    So I'm no more informed than I was before about their specs & as such I still do not trust them as far as I could throw them.

    I would give the shirt of my back to battery Mooch if he needed it. He was and still is a fantastic help. I follow him of FB and as busy as he is he always finds the time to answer a battery related question. My partnee needed to find a special battery to a medical device...yes you guessed it made in China and the website was gone...Mooch found it and replied in half a day.

    I've mentioned this before but I'm rather wary of the Samsung 25R's. Yes, they're a great battery, but after purchasing 6 from 2 major vendors in Australia, and finding them to be fake, I have long moved over to the LG HE4's. On all but 1, black spots and pealing appeared on them within a 2 week period. I max out at around 16 watts too.
