I was asking because i read in multiple places that IMR batteries (even unprotected) are safe for mechanical mods... I'm quite new to this game (stopped smoking about 2 months ago using a 1300 mah v3 spinner).

If you are new I recommend protected only until you learn the hazards. Yes some do use unprotected imrs safer chemical but with this you need more knowledge.

Play it safe and use the protected . I would hate to see a new vapor blow up.

Also never leave batteries charging unattended and pull them when finished charging. If you tend to be forgetful I suggest you get a wall timer to plug your charger in and set it for appropriate time . You can determine this buy timing how long it takes to charge a particular battery. It is extra safety measure to save you having a fire.

Thanks for the heads up. I knew about the charging thing. I ordered 2 packs of these for my evic, and my upcoming SVD. I ordered also the brass v3 mod (so cheap) and the small 18350 protected batteries. I got a charger SKU 1114000 to charge the 18650 and 18350. I also got Protanks, coils, 3x 1100mah twists (i love the twists for their size). Anyway this is a dangerous shop, already spent 300$ in 10 days here...

Wish FT could carry kicks and safety fuse for mech mods in a near future.

Not sure if your order already processed but I would probably switch chargers if you can to this one SKU 1119500 much better quality and safer. Worth they few extra bucks


Kicks and safety fuses among other things have been requested and we hope to see them soon in upcoming listings
