    Never seen one of these before, looks interesting. However my den has so much hardware that I might pass up the temptation

    Just had a quick look, yep its about the same price that I paid for before from an Aussie vendor. Will think about them. Thanks again. Usually I do not buy batteries on Ebay.

    You can trust SS600 100%, I know what you mean about buying batteries on ebay but this is an exception you wouldn't regret.
    His prices include shipping too, so maybe the price is a little cheaper if the batts you got were the same price + shipping, also he packs the batts very well, it is extremely unlikely that anything would ever go wrong with your package the way he packs it.

    He has LG, Samsung, Panasonic, Sony & I would be 100% confident they are the real deal. If you don't know what would be best for your particular set up, you can send him a message on ebay & he will recommend the best batts for what you need.
    He's an industrial chemist by trade & knows his stuff :)

    Nope, doesn't do juices either.
    He does sell a nic testing kit though, for ensuring correct nic strength of your juice.

    This guy Mooch is regarded as the Battery God on ECF has tests with graphs on all battery's.

    tps://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/threads/26650-battery-bench-test-results-and-new-ratings-table.725452/

    Moochs tests he recommends Keep power @15w - voltage drop above that is a concern.

    I'm using 26650 in proxvo stick with rta builds and nauty bvc coils @ around 1.2 -1.6 ohm /10-15w and get significantly longer run time than 18650,s

    26650 technology is way behind 1865o

    The keep power 5200mah from supersport are fine if you are using under 25 watts

    Super sport himself emailed and confirmed the same

    Hi Super sport

    re:Hi Maurice

    Yes, the keeppower are true 5200s and would be good at 25w and you would get better run time
    if you go nuts with the watts, then the MNKE 26650s would be better
    Both are better than the yellow ones 3500s
    cheers

    MNKE IMR 26650 4000 mAh

    Help please, where would I buy insulator gaskets/rings for 18650 Batteries.
    My searches have been fruitless.

    Battery Safety Movie Interview With Mooch
    This is an excellent but some what long movie that all beginner's should watch.
    I have had one battery vent on me and it's a horrible and terrifying experience especially if you don't know what to do and why this can happen.

    Has anyone besides me noticed a dramatic upsurge in battery failures in recent times? (Is it just my imagination?)

    The thing is, I was liking to be able to tweet this image..


    Suggesting just 5 battery failures per year for the entire US of A. But a few weeks ago I saw, and ripped into, a report on the US Navy considering to ban e-cigs based on '12 explosions over since 2015'. Now if they meant since January 2015 that's about 8 per year, for just one arm of the military, and I was ..skeptical.


    But I've also seen a couple of report in the last week as to 'current explosions' (AFAIR one in the states, one in the UK) & am starting to think the US Navy figures might not have been a distortion or exaggeration.

    But is my perception wrong? (It's not beyond the possible that 5 a year might all occur in the same week, let alone just 2).

    If not, what is causing it? High powered mods? Idiots who don't understand Ohm's law diving in too deep as newbies? A proliferation of counterfeit batteries?

    Thoughts?

    the navy are big on documentation

    lots go unreported, but in the military, every event is recorded
