There are many types of batteries and brands for vape pens these days. They come in several different sizes too such as 18350, 18500, 18650 and the insane 26650 MNKE battery. What you need to know is which is the best one to buy. The 18650 is the most commonly used vape battery and for the purposes of this article, this is where we will focus.
Now, there are two factors to consider when choosing an 18650 battery for your vape.
- Does the battery have a flat top or button top? The button top looks just like your everyday run of the mill battery with the small protrusion at the positive end. With button tops, you’re gambling that they will fit in your box mod or properly in your mech mod so that your vape will screw together flush. The best option is to go with a flat top battery.
- What is the amp limit? This is the most important property of your battery. High amp limits of 30A or higher are ideal for vaping. Low amp limit batteries will not handle most coil builds if you use rebuildable atomizers or even most of the sub ohm tanks like the Delta 2. Vaping beyond a batteries limit will cause it to leak and/or explode. A 30 amp or higher battery is bound to handle whatever you put on it, otherwise sharpen your knowledge of Ohms Law.
What you want to avoid are batteries with the word “fire” in the name. TrustFire batteries and those similar are only good for your basic starter kits with tanks that register at 2 ohms or higher. Next avoid button tops.
The best battery to choose is the Efest 18650 35A battery.
