Couple of questions
I have a mech mod of this version, but due to safety, I would like this one. I know too little about vaping safely on a mech. So I have a couple of questions for you.

1. I now use these batteries: SKU 1141100 for my pico mech mod. Can I use those for this VW mod?

2. I have a SXK Hadaly Styled RDA SKU 6228800. If a coil leg isn't mounted correctly and it touches the metal cap by accident, there is no safety issue right? This mod, being a protected mod, just won't fire right?

Hoping for your help

1. Your batteries are rated 5 amp according to Mooch. Read discussion thread. 5 amp means 21w. So i wouldn't even use these in a pico squeeze.
2. The mod will not fire.
We can't agree on everything.

^^^ what he says.

1. Don’t use them over 20W, better not over 15W.
Don’t use them in a mech at all, unless you know exactly what you are doing

2. This will create a short and the pico won’t fire. There is no protection in a mech though.


BTW: Eleaf suggests a 25A + battery for their pico squeeze, if you want to use the full potential safely.

I bought those batteries as well SKU 1141100 four years ago. They are great for powerbanks, if you wonder what to do with them...
Better get some new ones for your pico & squeeze.

Thanks! Nico to know it'save.

Could you help me again? I do not quite understand the whole amp thing, that's why I don't vape my mech anymore. I just do not have enough knowledge. Of course, I could study it, but wouldn't feel save anyway. So these are my remaining questions:

1. I did some reading and I should get these batteries Samsung INR18650-30Q right?

2. Could I use those batteries SKU 1141100 safely, at least untilI get the others?

3. I know they batteries are only 6.8A (at least that what I read until Philipbdv just told me it's only 5A) So I understand that means 21w. But I have been vaping it on the mech with those batteries fully loaded (about 3.7v on avg. right?) with a 0.4 ohm coil. So about 34w on average. So that was extremely dangerous?

Thode 30q are ok for the squeeze. The ones you use now, you shouldn't go below 0.8 - 1 ohm. If the pico requires 25 amp, better take the 25r samsung. And if you want to go very low, i would use the vtc4 for a mech.

1. Good batteries.

2. I would normally say yes, if you stay below 20W, but maybe you have damaged them already with 3.

3. Don’t do that again!
I’m quite the daredevil myself - I don’t even wear a helmet on my bonanza bike and everything, but I would’t use those batteries in a mech with 0.4 Ohm. You were lucky. Panasonic is usually quite conservative with their ratings and they seem
very robust.

Samsung 30Q, 25R
Sony VTC 5, 5a, 6
LG HG2

would be all ok.

Jeez, glad I have decided not to use my mech anymore. Very lucky indeed!! I am currently using my old cloupor V6 VW until my pico vw arrives. Thanks for the warnings!

I also have bought these here in a vaping shop in the Netherlands and also have been using them. I assume they can be used safely?

Sorry Moosgummi, didn't see your replies in time. So I guess my Sony VTC 6 3120mAh 30A 18650 Flattop are fine. Thanks again!
