I think Jeggedda is probably referring to 3 hours of *continuous vaping* and not needing a fresh 18650 every 3 hours of their life.

@ShelaghStone,
Is that 24hrs of use or like over the course of an average 16hr awake day?

This will be my first 18650 mod and these figures are really putting me off. I use Ego one with 2200mah battery and it last all day. I use istick 50watts and they last 2 days of heavy vape. These figures I am hearing are really a letdown. :(

FME I get as good or better run time on my pico as my 50W vw mods, using TCR mode.

IIRC the iStick 50W only contains a sealed, non-user-serviceable 18650 battery inside - a removable 18650 mod should last you roughly the same amount of vaping in your style (given the same kinds of coil, wattage etc).

A better question would be how much liquid will one battery go through per charge. Since some people vape 5ml in 3hrs, and others vape 5ml in 48hrs. Hence the wildly differing answers.

Jegg is either vaping alot of liquid in those 3 hours, or using huge, inefficient coils, or both. Could be his bats are old, but I'm leaning towards the first two.

@Game_Cat I hope you are right, that would be reasonable to me.

@johnny_469 that sounds encouraging.

For the price, the pico is one of the best deals for your buck in a single 18650 mod, period ;-)

I hardly leave home without mine.

Well judging from all your responses it seems that we are in agreement that Jeggs times are off from the rest of yours. So that is a little relief. For the record, I usually vape about 4ml a day @18 to 25 watts.

Last night I timed how long it would last because it was pissing me off and getting less run time on a battery than my Sigelei 75w, which before this mod had been the worst that I had seen in any mod I owned.

My 25 Rs are fine. I can use the same 3 that I am rotating in the pico in my RX200's and get a day and a quarter out of them.

I ONLY charge them at .25 amps and my pico lasted from 11:15 PM to 2:15 AM before it said weak battery. Using my cleito with the rba ( 2 coils coming in at .4 ohms ) at 35 w.

When I get weak battery the battery has 3.2V left in it. Every time. I have 6 new HG2's arriving this week and will try those, but like I said with the 3 25R's I am rotating in the pico....in my RX200's they will last a day and then some.

Oh, and I'm vaping 10ml per day.

Hunh - so you *did* mean a literal 3 hours, and not a Steamengine's Battery Drain 3 hours.

Sounds like something's amiss, there...
