Minding Your mAhs – Ep18 – Do higher battery current ratings = better performance? | Choosing the best battery
Many vapers choose the battery with the highest continuous current rating to try to get the best performance. Is that a good strategy?
I also show you how to use the watt-hour (Wh) and DC internal resistance numbers I provide with my testing results to choose the best performing battery.
A huge thank you to my Naquadah Level patrons!

A great calculator for vapers:
Misusing or mishandling lithium-ion batteries can pose a SERIOUS RISK of personal injury or property damage. They are not meant to be used outside of a protected battery pack. Never exceed the battery’s continuous current rating and keep the plastic wrap and top insulating ring in perfect condition.
Where known, the ratings set by Samsung, Sony, LG, or Panasonic/Sanyo will be used.
Any battery from Samsung, Sony, LG, Panasonic, or Sanyo can be a lower grade battery or a fake. Only buy from a known, trusted source of genuine batteries. Even then, there are no guarantees.
Carefully research any battery you are considering using before purchasing.
Testing batteries at their limits is dangerous and should never, ever, be attempted by anyone who has not thoroughly studied the dangers involved, understands the risks, has the proper equipment, and takes all appropriate safety precautions.
These tests I do only note the estimated ratings for the batteries at the time I tested them. Any battery that is not a genuine Samsung, Sony, LG, Panasonic, or Sanyo can change at any time This is one of the hazards of using “rewrapped” batteries or batteries from other manufacturers so carefully research any battery you are considering using before purchasing.
