@ Skank: What kind of intensive purposes?



I think it was a typo, I think he means "for all intents and purposes".

30Q are still solid cells, though the NCRs just have the edge on them - not least because if the added safety. I've seen an earlier version (I think it was a B or PF) hard shorted for half an hour (the person stuck a G clamp with a copper bracket over the terminals), then recharged from dead flat, and over aa number of duty cycles there was no significant impact on capacity or performance. Doubtessly their overall life expectancy was curtailed, but try that with any other battery, and it's game over.

The reason VTC4 cells still have a bit of a following - even more so than other VTC variants - is the low internal resistance. On paper they deliver the current more efficiently, which is good becoz clowdz.....allegedly. To be fair, I haven't really been keeping up with IR figures for the latest generation of cells, so that might not even be a factor anymore.

just ordered 6 more 30Q, they are perfect for all the parallel and series boxes. Will replace all 25r one by one with the 30qs or use the 25r only in the mechs and single cell mods.

Common English saying ;-) Not sure if it got lost in translation...

I seem to be liking the 30Qs myself. Real respectable run time and delivery powering the DNA 200 in dual 18650 mode although I don't vape anywhere near 133 watts, 50 to 60 watts is the higher end of my vaping spectrum.

Well, dang it! You've persuaded me to start buying up those NCRs (for my dual mods, at least) I hate they are more expensive, but the peace of mind you get is priceless. Especially since wifey takes 2 or 3 mods with her to the office everyday.

Thanks for that info, Nymzavril. I hadn't heard they were that safe.
Cheers.
