ICR or IMR?
Can anyone see if these are ICR or IMR batteries? I can't see anything on the product description stating either, just "Rechargeable Li-ion". Maybe I'm just missing it? But I know I don't want to use ICR batteries in my mechanical mod!

IMR'S are not protected but are WAY safer than an ICR due to battery chemistry!!!

Get one of these instead:
SKU 1429008
SKU 1450113

I can't say for a fact that SKU 1429008 is actually an IMR chemistry battery, but I feel safer knowing it says IMR on the wrapper. Basing it off the wrapper is a terrible choice, but between the orange Ultrafire 18350 or the red Trustfire 18350 that says IMR on it, I'd go with the red Trust Fire 18350.

Between the two SKU I posted above, I'd go with the Xtar 18350 IMR. That is, assuming that the Xtar batteries carried here are authentic. FastTech seems to have a good standing with authenticity and their batteries, so I will trust Fast Tech that the Xtar are in fact authentic IMR batteries.

Also, please don't go sub ohm on them.

Thanks bro, that means they are all going to have be disposed of properly because I trust IMR batteries even unprotected on sub ohm builds. However I will not use an ICR battery chem on even a 1.0+ ohm build, and all my builds are sub ohm. Even my RSST tank system is at .7 ohms.

And my nimbus is at .3 ohms... I know I should be using protected batteries period.

I usually rock 18500 mode but these looked like a "smoking" deal and I now no why...

Back to IMR'S for me and now 3 weeks waiting and $20+ wasted. Oh well I'd rather trash them than trash my face if and when it blows up from a long drag off a .3 ohm coil!

Live and learn right? I just saw all the reviews and looking at A lot of them I just wish more people would take time to learn how to make their mech mods safer!

From what I've read, IMR do not need a protection circuit board or whatever it is. It is the chemistry that makes them "safe". The protection board on batteries limit its amp draw, so be careful with using protected batteries with such a low resistant coil. I forgot which Panasonic batteries, but the unprotected hybrid chemistry has a 10 amp draw while the protected version of it is castrated to a mere 5 amp draw or so.

Sorry to hear about the $20 wasted =/ I would have just gotten 18650's that I'm confident will be able to handle such low ohms.

I agree with you on the last part. I have a few of those 30 amp limit batteries from another place, but even those I'm still skeptical going lower than 0.5 ohm. I know they can handle 0.25 ohm, but still.

I already responded with "all my builds are sub ohm" but thanks buddy!
