My Pico doesn't like LG batteries.
Samsungs? Blue and Green sammies both good to go.

Sony? VTC4's are good to go!

Pink LG's? 3 or 4 hits to "weak battery" warning and horrible output. Put it back on the charger, and it read 4.1v. Does this with both LG batteries (which work fine in all other devices). Edit: Only running it at 46 watts.

Anyone else have a Pico that's battery discriminating? I find this whole thing weird and confusing.

No racist Picos here, they don't care what color battery I put in them. Have you tried the same batteries in different devices.
The LG 30 Qs usually show an extended run time in most anything I put them in.

Voltage reading will not show battery capacity so it could be the batteries are getting tired.

I guess you edited, the next question would be are you using the 1.03 version software and if so are you utilizing the preheat feature?

Put the toy away Joe and pull out the man mod, y'know the one that doesn't do 213W that got accused of murdering JFK,


LG's aren't the grail they are made out to be either, the brown ones seem to be ok to 40W but use em above that and they sag fast so I've heard,

The VTC5 is still the daddy batt and the 25R's so much better than they are now credited with now that they ain't the new hooli on the block anymore, VTC4's are probably the most underrated of them all, 2100mah lets em down but on every other front they are the nuts,

Personally no more Eleaf family stuff for me based on this,

Sig 150W 2 years old still kickin in doors

Kbox original still working great for a 40W mod

eVic mini, wobbly pin, doesn't always fire and weak batt message on batts that ain't anywhere near dead

Cuboid, check atty, check atty, check atty

Presa 100W, weak battery, weak battery

Fuchai 213, I wish it had a fanny



Cheap shit for the masses I'm afraid, a mate does an Eleaf mod in every 4 months without fail.

Bone stock. No upgrades. LG's are the only batteries that don't work right. I tested them all. I had that bitch plugged in all day between "smoke breaks" and got the same result. Puff puff puff, low battery.

Honestly, I'm fucking baffled.

Joke's on you, this isn't actually a raffle.

That's the thing though.. I've used these (yes, authentic) batteries for months in other devices. Works fine. Just put the pair in the istick 100w TC like 10 minutes ago, no issues at all.
