Crap batteries * Do not trust ratings blindly *
FT it seems is not allowing a 1star review. Its pending approval for a long time. So decided to make a thread hoping atleast some buyers can stay away from these batteries.

Looks Cheap while ordering but since they do not hold any charge hence infact for the capabilities its very costly.
From what I have read, these are most probably repackaged batteries from laptop batteries etc. On a mechanical mod with a 1.3-1.6 Ohm coil they do not give even a hour's vape time, and this is only after 2-3 recharge cycles. So no idea what will happen after some time.

I have some of these and they are ok. I didn't expect them to last very long, that's what I have Panasonic NCR18560B's's for. At 12 watts I get a bit more than half a day. I use them in an SVD and KFL with a nano kit. It's my setup for short trips to the store and stuff like that. For $5 they're good enough.

I have some of those, they are not so bad, of course 1200mAh is just fantasy and there are better 18350 on the market
(eg. Sibeile 18350, Tensai 18350)
but on the other hand, they are really cheap
repacked from laptop batteries? cant belive :) I never seen 18350 in laptop betteries

18350s are weak
these are low quality 18350s
li-ion batteries do take 5-10 charges to reach full potential

the AW 18350 has merit, that new purple efest looks promising but tbh if you want a small battery that works try an IMR 18500.

The purple efest 18350's are dope and I've built under .5 on them. They last a long time for 350s. The 35A 18650 are also nice but not any better than vtc5s from my experience.
