THE INNOKIN EZ.WATT & NEW “NOT A” CONTEST – Invite a smoker to watch this one!

A PBusardo Review – The Innokin EZ.WATT

In this video we take a look at the Innokin EZ.WATT. A great, satisfying, an easy to work with kit for a smoker, so I tried to gear the video to a beginner. I invite you to invite a smoker to watch it.

We also give one away at the end.

NHS Health Scotland: E-cigs ‘definitely’ less harmful than smoking

Dear FDA,

Please take note of the word “definitely”.

“We would encourage people to consider them and we would encourage people providing smoking cessation serves to offer them as an option to people who are willing to pay for them,”

Dr Fraser said vaping was definitely safer than smoking tobacco

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: AWT Red 40A 3000mAh 18650…enough is enough, just don’t buy it.

This “40A” cell is the exact same one as AWT’s “35A” 3000mAh, a rewrapped Samsung 30Q. Enough is enough, just don’t buy this cell.

I am rating this AWT at 20A and 3000mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by temperature.

The two cells that were tested were purchased for that purpose by me.

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: AWT Red 35A 3000mAh 18650…ridiculously overrated, not IMR

This cell has “35A” on the wrap, a useless overrating. It’s not even close to its true rating and can’t be a “pulse” rating because we don’t know the pulse length, the time between pulses, or the criteria used to set the rating. This means we can’t use the rating to compare this battery to any other…it’s useless.

The wrap has “IMR 18650” on it but this cell does not use the battery chemistry often associated with the IMR model number prefix. It uses the chemistry associated with the INR prefix.

This AWT performs identically, and appears identical to, the Samsung 30Q. I am rating this AWT cell at 20A and 3000mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by temperature.

The two cells that were tested were purchased for that purpose by me.

THE CTHULHU MRDA

A PBusardo Review – The Cthulhu MRDA

This is kinda a cranky Phil video. We talk about some Sigelei product that came in, do a follow-up on the HCigar Towis T180, take a look at the Cthulhu MRDA a (not a) mouth to lung rebuildable dripping atomizer, and wrap it up with a new “Not A” Contest.

The Post Review Follow-up:

  • 9/19/17 – Around the 8:50 mark, I mention that the HCigar is the only dual 18650 in parallel and thought that Lost Vape may have one.  Of course they do!!  That was one of the devices that Brandon brought with him when he introduced the 75C.  It’s the Lost Vape Therion 75C which also runs dual 18650s in parallel.  The HCigar is much more compact though.  Thanks Luke!
  • 9/19/17 – Around the 24:30 mark, I mention MTLs building with 18 & 16 gauge wire.  That’s a big LOL and Oops!  Meant to say 28 and 26 gauge.  Thanks JF!

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: AWT Red-Black 50A 2600mAh 18650…preposterously overrated, now lower grade

This cell has “50A” on the wrap, an insane overrating. Even if we consider the 50A rating to be a “pulse” rating, which is useless, it’s still overrated.

This was a retest. The previous testing was done in October, 2016 and this cell was found to be an overrated rewrap that was identical in performance and appearance to the Sony VTC5. It is still a VTC5 rewrap but the performance of the two AWT’s I tested was a bit worse this time. They appear to be lower grade cells.

I am rating this AWT cell at 20A and 2600mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by temperature.

With all the other cells that are available to us, without this degree of overrating and without being lower grade cells, this one is a terrible choice and earns a Do Not Buy recommendation from me.

The two cells that were tested were purchased for that purpose by me.

CAN I SQUONK NOW? THE CTHULHU MRDA

Mouth To Lung (MTL) – we’re hearing a lot about it lately and we now have another offering.

One of the reasons I don’t drip or squonk a lot is because we have so few choices for MTL dripping and squonking.

I heard about this one and it just came in… The Cthulhu MRDA… a 22mm “MTL” dripping atomizer with side and top airflow adjustments that comes complete with a bottom feeding pin option.

I’m as curious about this design as some of you maybe and eager to build it to see if it delivers a proper mouth to lung vape.

Stay tuned. In the meantime, here are some photos for you…

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: iJoy 40A 3750mAh 21700…hugely overrated but better than NCR20700B

This cell has “40A” on the wrap which is far, far above its true rating of 24A. It’s capacity is also exaggerated and averages only 3650mAh for the three cells I tested.

I have spoken to iJoy though and they have agreed to rewrap the cell using more realistic ratings. I will retest when the new wrap is available.

There was a greater than typical variation in the capacities of the three cells I tested. It almost appears that there is no grading by capacity for the cells coming off the assembly line. It would take several days of testing to determine the true capacity rating of this cell but the 3650mAh rating I am giving it is close to its true rating.

This cell is outperformed by the 40A 3000mAh iJoy/Ampking/EBAT/Efest 20700 which hits harder and runs just as long at moderate to high power levels. I recommend using this cell at power levels of 50W or less to help prevent voltage sag from giving you early weak/low battery alerts in a regulated mod.

This iJoy cell does outperform the 15A 4000mAh Sanyo NCR20700B cell though.

While I am extremely disappointed with the degree of overrating of this cell by iJoy I am glad that they are willing to rewrap it with more realistic ratings.

This cell is not a rewrap of any other 21700 that I am aware of. I am rating this iJoy cell at 24A and 3650mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 30A, limited by temperature and voltage sag.

The two cells that were tested were purchased for that purpose by me.

THE KAYFUN PRIME RECEIVED TODAY

THE NEW KAYFUN IS HERE!
THE NEW KAYFUN IS HERE!

(Channeling Steve Martin with the new phone book from The Jerk)

This is not a review, but I know there’s a lot of folks interested in this piece so I thought I’d post some initial photos here.

Looks like the Mini V3 and the 5 got together for a hot night of Kayfun sex and popped out the “Prime”.

This one doesn’t appear be a “try to do everything tank” like got with the 5, but it looks like they’ve gone back to their MTL roots… at least with this one.

How does it vape? I’ll let ya know. 🙂

Enjoy!

Kayfun Prime

NEW FROM REGULATOR WATCH – FDA | What’s Gottlieb Thinking?

Here’s the latest from Brent Stafford at Regulator Watch:

Would Dr. Scott Gottlieb save vaping? This was the question on the minds of many in the vaping industry upon hearing the news President Trump would appoint Dr. Gottlieb as the new head of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The answer is starting to become clear.

In a bombshell announcement Commissioner Gottlieb issued a 5-year extension on compliance deadlines for the dreaded Premarket Tobacco Application process, which if fully implemented could have wiped out the vaping industry. He announced a new approach to nicotine regulation that recognizes the harm reduction benefits of e-cigarettes. And, he committed FDA to a more robust and sustainable regulatory framework for the vaping industry.

But, all is not sunshine and roses. The commissioner had a stark assessment and warning for the vaping industry. What’s Commissioner Gottlieb thinking? Find out—only on RegWatch by RegulatorWatch.com.

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: Golisi Gold G30 25A 3000mAh…bit overrated, appears to be HG2

This cell has “25A CDC” on the wrap which I believe is a continuous discharge current rating. While this is a bit of an overrating I am delighted to say that there is no useless “max” or “pulse” rating on the wrap

The wrap has “IMR 18650” on it but this cell does not use the battery chemistry often associated with the IMR model number prefix. It uses the chemistry associated with the INR prefix.

This cell appears identical, and performs essentially identical, to the LG HG2. I am rating this Golisi cell at 20A and 3000mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by temperature.

The two cells that were tested were donated by Golisi for that purpose. Thank you!

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: Brillipower Pink 5000mAh 40A 26650…comically overrated, very long, not IMR

This cell has “Max Continuous 40A ” on the wrap but this is a ridiciculous overrating. The “Pulse 85A” rating is completely useless. At 85A the voltage dropped to my 2.5V cutoff in a fraction of a second.

The wrap has “IMR26650” on it but I do not know if this cell uses the chemistry associated with the IMR model number prefix.

This is a very long cell, averaging 67.3mm, and will not fit in some mods. I do not have a list of which.

Compared to the Shockli Black 20A 5500mAh this Brillipower hits a little harder at the start but performs worse for the rest of the discharge. For low to moderate power vaping the Shockli is a better choice.

I am rating this Brillipower cell at 20A and 5000mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by voltage sag.

The two cells that were tested were purchased for that purpose by me.

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: Brillipower Green 4500mAh 80A 26650…laughably overrated, not IMR

This cell has “80A” on the wrap. This is so much of an overrating all I can do is laugh. Even if we consider the 80A rating to be a useless “pulse” rating it’s still grossly overrated. At 80A the voltage dropped to my 2.5V cutoff in a fraction of a second.

The 4500mAh capacity of this cell is also exaggerated. It is a 4300mAh cell, at the most.

The wrap has “IMR26650” on it but I do not know if this cell uses the chemistry associated with the IMR model number prefix.

I am rating this Brillipower cell at 23A and 4300mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by voltage sag. Now that we have better 26650’s to choose from this Brillipower will be removed from my Recommended Batteries table.

With all the other cells that are available to us, without this degree of overrating, this one is a terrible choice and earns a Do Not Buy recommendation from me.

The two cells that were tested were purchased for that purpose by me.
