Why even mention 25r cells? They're obsolete. 30q cells have the same amp rating and 500mAh more.


You'll need to read and understand more.

Also, Picos automatically limit the current if the vdrop is too extreme for your power cell.


So you're not actually getting the amps you want?
As I said, I can vape my 25R to "empty", not as "empty" with my 30Q, and even further from "empty" on my Panas-
and that's all at under 6.5 Amps.
The difference in actual vaping time is minuscule.
Long term, the 30Q & 25R will far outlast the the Panas.

I'm not as ready as you to trust a company with a long history of cheaping out.
The same company who managed to release a mod with a higher failure rate than even the Cloupor Mini-
and more dangerous failure, too.
The iStick 50. Remember that?

I waited several months before I bought my first Pico, and I really like small mods.
I didn't even know it was so small for at least a month, because anything iStick was to be avoided, imo.
And I'm someone who had bought a Cloupor Mini Plus, after several months' wait & watch.

Any 20A CDR cell is technically sufficient for them, even @75W.


The 30Q is not a 20A CDR cell, if you care to read Mooch's report carefully.

According to Ohms Law on the site someone reported as advertising
0.05 ohms draws ~38 Amps at 75W, so, "technically" you're really stressing even 25R, even with short puffs.
You're even stressing Sony VTC3 at the the limits of Pico's capabilities.

Many people hold the view that 60W should be the upper limit of a single 18650 batt mod.
The lowest resistance a single batt mod will fire should probably be raised, since so many people seem to want a few mins extra vape time from each batt.
When people have seen the noticeable permanent effect battery sag has on a batt, they may think again about that choice, or not, depending how confident they are about getting cheap batteries shipped to them.

No advertisement in this post.

I think it's obvious who is the malicious reporter (& his alts).

That really depends on the most Amps you are likely to use.

I've been safely using some batts I wouldn't suggest if you're unsure.

There is a great site with that information, but a few people, or one person and his alts reported my post with the link, and within a few hours a moderator edited it out.
Well done- that just makes it harder for people to be self-reliant and less dependent on anonymous strangers giving advice.

You'd do well to google Ohm's Law-
then look at eg Mooch's battery tests on ecf

eg- I'm unlikely to need anything higher drain than Panasonic NCR18650GA on Mooch's table.
Sold by FT as Sanyo NCR18650GA

I wouldn't have a clue about higher drain batts- I don't know if a Pico will fire an ultra low resistance, in spite of using 2 Picos almost every day.

I'd strongly suggest you pick up some battery wrap at the same time.

You can compare $/mAh for each batt.

I don't know if they all have 250 full cycles of useful vaping life.

Battery sag will shorten the long term life of a batt, so, if you think you'll vape at 20 Amps, the Samsung 25R may end up as both your safest & cheapest buy.

If you're sure you'll stay under 10 Amps, the GA.

Under 20 Amps, the 30Q
(You'll have to read Mooch's detailed report to see they're not 20 Amp continuous-
the damage of battery sag. There are other well-respected battery reviewers)

Even though my relatively low rated batt will be showing plenty of batt left, my Picos (& other reg mods) will refuse to fire them, whereas I can use my 25R almost to the last drop-
not best practice, but....

No advertisement here either.

Back your "facts" up with links.
I have posted links.
Not, of course, to the site someone reported as advertising.

I'm really confused now:(. I bought Samsung 30q. Does someone tell me the max watt and AMP i can use with those batteries without any risk of explosion please?

In all honesty it depends on how you intend to use the Pico. At the moment I'm using a 10 amp cell in one of my Picos but my coil build doesn't demand a higher amperage battery.
It's a 0.7 ohm dual coil build in a Wotofo Conqueror I'm vaping at 50 watts using a Panasonic CGR 18650 CH cell with 2250mAh which is a continuous 10 amp rated cell the Pico's drawing less than 9 amps from.

Edit: With this battery a higher voltage discharge is preferred which means higher ohms resistances coils, 0.7 ohms is about as low as I'll build coils for this cell in 50 watt regulated mods.

The 30q's will work fine same as the 25R's.. Just relax and wait for the mailman.. I have both and never had a problem.. These people are arguing about the vape time before recharging.. Nothing more.. The pico will be safe with either..
