A BATTERY MOOCH POST: An Efest battery without a useless pulse rating?

If I hadn’t seen it I would never had believed it.
Efest’s new 20700, to be sampled soon, is being released with just a “Max continuous discharge” rating of 30A on the wrap and on the web site.

Efest 20700 specs screen capture: https://imgur.com/a/Tigby

Web page: http://www.efestpower.com/m/index.php?ac=article&at=read&did=468

If this is the Sanyo NCR20700A or the cell used by iJoy and Ampking, all true 30A cells, then this is very good news indeed! If this is just the 16A Sanyo NCR20700B then I will be very disappointed…to say the least.

Until recently, this Efest 20700 was shown (rendered) with a pulse rating on the wrap. I don’t know what changed Efest’s mind but I’m very happy they did.

I am hoping that this new Efest rating setup will be carried over to their 18650’s as our community sorely needs the companies other than Samsung/Sony/LG/Panasonic/Sanyo to accurately rate their batteries. Especially with the inevitable additional battery regulations coming our way over the next year or two.

I do not know yet when I will be testing these Efest 20700’s.
I do not know yet when or where they will be available for purchase.
As soon as I have any more information I will post it.

VAPING SURVEY

Another vaping survey for you to take at your earliest convenience…

We want to inform you about the biggest vaping survey worldwide. We are
conducting this survey on behalf of VON ERL., an Austrian e-cigarette producer, who
aims at getting a deeper insight into the vaping community. Therefore, we are
investigating the habits and the behavior of e-cigarette users around the world.
Further, we are gathering information about how vapors as well as non-vapors think
about the legal conditions and the vaping acceptance of society in general.

YOU’RE WELCOME SHAWN!!

You’re welcome Shawn and thanks to everyone who helped out Shawn via my Facebook post. Glad you were able to get one and that you’re enjoying it buddy!! Vape Happy!

(and your mug is not ugly!! 🙂 )

Hey buddy, just had to write you this message and say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK
YOU!!!! Because of you and your awesome community, I have finally gotten the tank I
thought I would not be able to get my hands on. I don’t know any other way to
express my thanks to you and to the awesome community who came together go on a
“treasure hunt vape” that helped get me this device. I’ve already got it built, and
sitting happily on my vaporshark. Current build is a Clapton 26/32 coil, 6 wraps
coming in at .70 ohm running 19 watts and its wonderful. Not sure Ill keep it with
the Clapton, but the fact that I was able to fit such a large coil in it is a
testament to how awesome this tank is going to be for me. Sadly, it didn’t come with
the airflow reducer piece, but does have 4 air holes instead of 3, though Im sitting
off center on one to reduce even further. I’ve included a pic, sorry for my ugly
mug but kinda ecstatic right now and I owe it to you. 🙂

NEW FROM REGULATOR WATCH – Freedom Factor | U.S. Rep. Hunter Talks Vaping Bill

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

On the right side of freedom, that’s how U.S. Rep. Duncan D. Hunter views issues around vaping. Last month, the Congressman from California’s 50th district introduced the nation’s first comprehensive vaping legislation H.R. 2194 to the House or Representatives, which if passed, would secure a viable and vibrant vaping industry for decades to come.

RegWatch caught up with the Congressman at his neighborhood haunt in San Diego for an exclusive chat about the new bill, what’s in it and the challenges that lie ahead in the effort to turn legislation into law—only on RegWatch by RegulatorWatch.com.

RegulatorWatch.com – May 17, 2017.

Web-Extra – FDA injustice?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration unilaterally ruled e-cigarettes to be a tobacco product, which then subjected vaping to punitive regulations designed for cancer-causing combustible cigarettes.

Did the FDA commit an injustice on the American people?

Hear what U.S. Congressman Duncan D. Hunter has to say—only on RegWatch by RegulatorWatch.com.

ANNOUNCING THE ARRIVAL OF MTLVAPORS.COM!

Announcing the arrival of MTLVapors.com!

GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION THIS WEEK – USE COUPON CODE “bromance” (all lower case) for 15% off!

This is a joint effort between myself, Dimitris Agrafiotis, and Schell Hammel.

Our slogan of the site is, “Where Vapers Send Smokers”.

We wanted to created a site that was…

1. Focused on the transitioning smoker.
2. Focused on the mouth to lung style of vaping.

A site where a vapor can comfortably send a smoker knowing they won’t be confused with “Starter Kits” that are definitely not designed for “starters” or transitioning smokers.

And a site where MTL (Mouth-To-Lung)  vapers can feel comfortable shopping for their style of vaping.

The site is just getting started. New products will be added in the upcoming months including rebuildable MTL tanks so please check back often.

In addition, we’re working on video tutorials for all of the products contained on the site.

You can be assured that we’ve personally used all of the products on the site and confirmed that they work well for the mouth-to-lung style of vaping.

Thanks everyone!

FIRST ONE IN – THE HCIGAR VT75 COLOR

The first one is in. Well, the second one if you count the Therion 75C that Brandon brought with him.

This is a DNA-75C device utilizing either a 26650 or 18650 with the conversion tube.

My current priority is a DNA-60/75/75C comparison, a look at the default theme as seen on the Therion and a review of HCigar VT75… all in one video.

I’m quite sure the “Full Busardo” will be in “full effect”.

As far as another look at E-Scribe, the changes, and the Theme Generator. That will be some time in the future. 🙂

Vape Happy My Friends!

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: Nitecore 35A 3100mAh 18650 Bench Test Results…only 20A 3000mAh

This Nitecore is a 20A rewrapped cell with a useless “pulse” rating (see the Comments section) and an exaggerated capacity rating.

While this cell has an accurate 20A continuous rating in micro print on the wrap it also has a useless 35A “max pulse discharge” rating on the wrap too. It also features “35A” in a huge font which many people will use as the cell’s rating when shopping or when a vendor displays it on their web site. For these reasons I feel the large “35A” rating, or any “pulse” or “max” rating, is misleading and shouldn’t be used.

If we vape with this battery above about 30A or so it can heat up to ridiculously high temperatures if there is a regulated mod malfunction or accidental button press in a mechanical mod. This could possibly force the battery to vent and leak/spray toxic organic solvents from the battery. I think vaper safety should be a priority when setting “pulse” ratings.

The wrap is not the standard heat shrink plastic. It is self-adhesive and appears to be similar to Mylar. I do not know how durable it is compared to the wraps being used now by other companies.

This cell says “IMR18650” on the wrap but it does not use IMR chemistry. It uses one of the INR chemistries.

I was especially disappointed to see this cell’s capacity rating set at 3100mAh by Nitecore. It is clearly set by Samsung at 3000mAh (see the 30Q datasheet image below).

I am rating this Nitecore at 20A and 3000mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) rating is 25A, limited by temperature. The ones I tested were rewrapped Samsung 30Q’s. Their performance was essentially identical to the 30Q’s I have here.

The two cells that were tested were purchased by me from IMRBatteries.

While this cell has a 20A continuous rating in micro print on the wrap it has a useless 38A “max pulse discharge” rating on the wrap too. It also features “38A” in a huge font which many people will use as the cell’s rating when shopping or when a vendor displays it on their web site. For these reasons I feel the large “38A” rating, or any “pulse” or “max” rating, is misleading and shouldn’t be used.

The wrap is not the standard heat shrink plastic. It is self-adhesive and appears to be similar to Mylar. I do not know how durable it is compared to the wraps being used now by other companies.

This cell says “IMR18650” on the wrap but it does not use IMR chemistry. It uses one of the INR chemistries.

I am rating this Nitecore at 23A and 2100mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) rating is 35A, limited by temperature. The ones I tested were rewrapped Sony VTC4’s. Their performance was close to, but a bit worse than, the VTC4’s I have here.

The two cells that were tested were purchased by me from IMRBatteries.

FROM CASAA – NY – Help stop senate bills that raise the age to vape and…

…ban vaping indoors!

NEW YORK ALERT

TOBACCO 21 AND INDOOR VAPING BAN

Multiple bills in New York are moving through both houses of the legislature that would ban vaping indoors and raise the age to purchase tobacco and vapor products to 21.

In the past, the NY Senate has shown more understanding and flexibility with laws affecting vaping. That being the case, we are asking members to take this opportunity to contact your state senators and urge them to oppose these misguided proposals.

Take Action – Send a Message!

Thank you,

CASAA Legislative Team

A BATTERY MOOCH POST: Nitecore 30A 2100mAh 18650 Bench Test Results…useless 30A rating, only 22A

This Nitecore is a 22A rewrapped cell with a useless pulse rating (see the Comments section).

While this cell has a 20A continuous rating in micro print on the wrap it has a useless 30A “max pulse discharge” rating on the wrap too. It also features “30A” in a huge font which many people will use as the cell’s rating when shopping or when a vendor displays it on their web site. For these reasons I feel the large “30A” rating, or any “pulse” or “max” rating, is misleading and shouldn’t be used.

I am rating this Nitecore at 22A and 2100mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) rating is 30A, limited by temperature. It appears to be a Samsung rewrap and might just be 2000mAh cells that test well for capacity. Its performance is similar to the 20R but its appearance isn’t a perfect match to the 20R’s I have.

The two cells that were tested were purchased by me from IMRBatteries.
