    Stay safe out there vapors!
    I wanted to talk about safety and how to understand your device and how to calculate the amp draw on your batteries
    Remember to always pick good batteries based on Moochs Rating not whats on the wrapper!

    Moochs Recommend Batteries https://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/blog-entry/moochs-recommended-batteries.7593/


    Always Use married Batteries! batteries that are the same exact ones that were purchased together, used together, and charged together at all times for devices that take multiple batteries

    best options from his list (18650)
    20 amp = Samsung 30Q or Sony VTC6
    25 amp = Sony VCT5a
    30 amp = Lg HB6
    Buy from legit sites only like illumn.com liionwholesale.com and IMRbatteries.com.
    Don't buy batteries off ebay or amazon!

    Regulated Device Formula for Battery amp Draw
    P(watts)/V(nominal voltage)=I(amps)
    typical safety measure is 75 watts per 20 amp battery for regulated devices

    For unregulated/mech mods
    use ohms law calculator
    http://www.ohmslawcalculator.com/ohms-law-calculator
    for series use voltage 8.4 and current as your batteries CDR rating
    for single battery use voltage 4.2 and your current as your batteires CDR
    for parallel use voltage 4.2 and one batteries current times 1.5 (example a pair of 30 amp batteries would be good for 45 amps because 30 times 1.5 = 45)
    General rule 30 amp batteries lowest safe resistance
    dual series .28
    dual parallel .09
    single battery .14
    General rule 20 amp batteries lowest safe resistance
    dual series .42
    dual parallel .14
    single battery .21
    General rule 25 amp batteries lowest safe resistance
    dual series .34
    dual parallel .11
    single battery .17

    Simple math for ur ohms law is volts/ohms=amps just throwing that out there

    Watts ampsX(volts after volt drop)=watts

    true. i dind't bother to differential over the 2 amps. this is more for beginners people looking to push crazy builds hopefully already know what they are doing lol. plus everything here has headroom not drop dead number by any means

    :)

    not sure what the means lol

    I am not sure if its the right branch to post it here so if its not just move to the right one-
    Sony vtc5 vs. vtc5a- which one of them is better for a tube mod?
    now i'm using Lg HG2 but what i've understood from, Sony are better for mechs

    How you charge your batteries is an important part of your general maintenance. The do’s and dont’s are pretty straight forward! Let's start with this too!

    Please share your opinions.

    I am using Efest LUC Blu6. I prefer to never mix and match sets of batteries or chargers

    Let's add one more tip:

    Your VG to PG ratio can cause the dry hit. A higher ratio of VG would mean a higher concentration level due to which the wick would take a while to absorb the e-liquid between the draws. Hence if you take a hit while it’s being absorbed by the liquid, you get a dry hit vape.

    depends on the atomizer really. some work better with higher VG and some work better with lower VG
