18650 Vape Batteries and Chargers
When choosing the best batteries for vaping, the most important things you need to consider are capacity, power output and most importantly safety.
What Is The Best Vape Battery?
Mods are powered by either an internal built-in battery or a removable battery. Advanced vape mod users tend to prefer the latter as they are more versatile. The 18650 has become the battery of choice when it comes to vaping. Although some larger mods take the 21700 batteries they often come with an insert to allow the use of 18650 batteries.
Why 18650 batteries For Vape Mods?
Whilst built-in lithium ion batteries are hassle free and have a decent power output. The main advantage is that you don't need to carry around spare batteries and chargers for your daily usage. You will however usually find an 18650 hard wired into the control board of the regulated mod.
Internally powered mods are ready to go as soon as you take them out of the box.
There are also less potential safety issues with built in batteries.
The drawback to integrated battery vapes are that they are essentially disposable products. Batteries do not last forever and once they deteriorate, you have to throw away the entire device rather than just replacing a cheap external part.
An external imr 18650 battery on the other hand such as the Avatar (one of only a few Vape specific batteries on the market) gives you more control over your mods performance, capacity and quality of the power supplied. When it reaches the end of its usable life, you can simply recycle it and replace it with another 18650 vape battery.
Choosing the right Vape Battery.
Batteries are often the cheapest part of your vape setup. So price should be at the bottom of your pros and cons list when picking a vape battery.
Cheap unsuitable or fake/knock off batteries (there are a lot of fake Sony VTC batteries around) can ruin your vaping experience. They may appear to work correctly to start with but you may quickly discover that the capacity and output ratings are incorrect. This can lead to your mod overheating or worse suffering from a catastrophic failure.
For a small cost all this can be avoided and you'll be able to vape on a better performing and most importantly safer device. Battery safety is our highest concern and it should be yours too.
High capacity batteries will have a low continuous discharge rating (suitable for loweer powered devices), where as lower capacity batteries will have a higher rating up to 30 amps (suitable for high powered devices).
