Batteries are a vital component of any vaping setup, without them your Vape device could never function. 18650 batteries are the most common type of battery used within Mods and Vape Pens, and this is for very good reason; 18650's have the capability of pushing out huge amounts of power whilst maintaining great battery life. Almost all devices will require at least one 18650 cell to power the device and they have been accepted as the industry standard.
An 18650 battery is a 3.7 volt lithium ion cell that can be recharged and are used in many other electronics other than vape devices. Whilst they may all look the same, there are some substantial differences in quality from battery to battery.
Which 18650 Battery is best for my Vape Kit?
When deciding which 18650 is best for your Mod, you should take into consideration a number of factors:
The capacity of the battery is measured in mAh (Milliamp Hours), this could range from anywhere between 1500mAh up to 3500mAh. The higher the capacity the more power/energy your cell will generate for longer periods of time.
Measured in amps, the discharge current rating will give you an idea of the amount of current you continue to draw from the battery, whilst maintaining an effective battery life without it overheating. Generally the higher the rating, the better the battery.
For Vapers, the higher the voltage your battery is capable of delivering the harder the hit will be and in turn leads to more vapour being produced and generating bigger clouds.
To avoid any damage and to ensure safety whilst in use, all vape batteries need to operate at a low temperature. Batteries which hit high temperatures too quickly will rapidly diminish the age of the battery and can lead to damage. If they overheat they can become extremely dangerous, and in some cases can burst.
