My annual contract work....servicing wind turbines. All rope access work.Great fun ten years ago but not so much now I'm an old fella! Good money,bad food,no sleep and this year a bumpy ride. Ah well...it's only a month at sea! Hope this damn sickness passes quickly. Never been sea sick before but suddenly understand how bad it is,had a guy airlifted off the ship last year because of it!


Don't drop another mod, Lazy!
Hope you can get rid of that sea sickness. Just three words: Gin, Navy Strength.
On second thoughts maybe not a good idea under the circumstances - swinging on a rope and all...

Cheers moos! Just getting all the gear ready today...work starts at 4am tomorrow! Unusually big swell for this time of year,ship rising and falling 4 metres and it's not only me honking over the side! Been in weather ten times worse before with no problems...go figure! Anyhoo,only older disposable mods on this trip and mum gave me a gallon of semolina to bring on board. If the ship goes down I can float home on my own semolina island! 😂

Ps. An old guy from London brought a boiled pigs head to snack on between meals...I immediately thought of Moosgummi! 😂

It's strange. I never got seasick (ok, once when I was 5) and I love sailing etc. But then I took a Danish car ferry in stormy weather a few years ago...I was lucky though, one of my friends had some pills and I was OK soon after. We were the only one's in the ship's mess, everybody else was "riding the porcelain bus". ;-)

Ah! Schweinskopfsülze! Yummy!



I don't trust the stuff anymore, after I bit on a tooth...and it wasn't mine. True story.

From everything I've read 20700's really aren't any better than the latest generation of 18650's, eg Sony vtc6

Have a look at what Mooch says & draw your own conclusions.

True! Even if it's 5 mm, it should fit. I stay away from the 20700 for the time being. Not enough benefits to justify the price difference.

Actually the Sanyo NCR20700A SKU 6992000 look impressive in the specs if you vape over 10 amps... They have a 30 amp CDR and a capacity of 3100 mAh. If under 10 amps the Sanyo NCR20700B SKU 6992100 would be a better alternative for the "staying power" of 4000 mAh.

In comparing an 18650 vr 20700 the closest we can get right now is the Sony VTC5A (25 amp CDR @ 2500 mAh) So, you're gaining an extra 5 amps on the continuous discharge rating and 600 mAh in run time... Is it worth it for the size increase??? Probably not for most.

The better option will be the 21700 cell Like the Samsung 30T (40A CDR @ 3100 mAh) that Mooch says: "is an incredible performer, running over 20% longer at 30A continuous than the Sanyo NCR20700A thanks to its incredibly low internal resistance of 10-12 mOhms. This low internal resistance reduces voltage sag, letting the 30T run for longer before the voltage drops too far."

TL/DR...The 20700's don't bring much more to the table except size and It'll be a while before we see the 21700 cells in the vaping market. But, if updating a device. Get one that'll take both... IMO it's really only beneficial for a single cell device and in particular, a mech user that likes to build super low. :)

Living is the only thing worth dying for...

So sorry, mate!
Just think of something nice. Unicorns, kittens, Bambi...
