Are they.....
Still the best in terms of real 30 amp con cells? I want some new batteries and vape at 15-20 amps using ss wire. Ive seen the vtc5 are not 30ac but 20ac as they fail temp test @ 30a. Plus over priced!

I would consider the usual 20a cells but they leave me no head room, yes i could build higher which I have considered, but that would not work on mechs.

???

amps to mah, I think yes. Only amps: there is an LG HB4/HB6 or smthing like that that beats everything :)

Actually mooch says the VTC3 is only 20A because it gets so hot (if I remember correctly). It does not fail at 30A though.

But they do, you'll be fine. I'll trust Torchy over all the other fear mongering bullshiters anytime.

Yer vtc3 20a c ive still got 4, one in my smpl as we speak! 2+ years old and still going strong but not had much use, unlike my he2 which have died but seems about right going by the spec sheet. I think the vtc4 is going to be my next purchase, just gona have to buy quite a few and a back pack to carry them around in =D

I wouldn't push the manufacture specs when stacking. Coming from a vaper who still uses ICR's ;)

Ive seen those test and was going to get some 30q but they have no temp spec's on the tests!

Vapor linked the 30q in another thread and 25a? Con was 100c plus!

Edit: 20a 100c thats pushing it a little high

Notice the thread about hand warming :0

Problem is I only bought one and have two hands... One should do both with well underrated batteries ;)

The 30Q is by far the best there is @20A. Ratings are meaningless for vaping.
