1. Original Panny 2. Made in Japan 3. Hybrid, Hi-Drain 4. Fits slug in GP Paps & similar mods
CONS
NONE, whatsoever
I have this one, as well as the Panasonic CGR18650CH, which is the 2nd best battery for vaping (also available here, in Fasttech). As of now, we cannot find a better battery than this worldwide. Both of these r Hybrid batteries, meaning: they r LiMn/LiCo type, though Panasonic have never divulged their config anywhere... but CPF and BLF members have dissected & tested them to be such. So what that means to us, vapers? These r better than the oft pimped IMR batteries, especially of the AW & Efest types. These r both "safe chemistry" as well as "hi-powered". This one gives me ONE AND HALF DAY easily on my mech mods... and I'm nearly a chain-vaper! Unfortunately this battery (Panasonic NCR18650PD) is more of a Panasonic CGR variety than the NCR, which is why many r unaware of it and it's capability. Somehow Panasonic has messed up with it's name terminology. But rest assured, this one is of the same config. as the CGR18650CH and way higher powered (see the mAh). I've touted them many times over in ECF... and guarantee that this is the BEST BATTERY FOR OUR MODS, seconded only by the Panasonic CGR18650CH. These two beat the AW & Efest IMR batteries severely. GREAT BUY.... GO FOR IT. AND U WILL THANK ME FOREVER :)

1. Original Panasonic, Made in Japan. 2. Solid built quality. 3. Lasts longer than any other. 4. Correct capacity - IT IS a 3100mAh battery.
CONS
Size. (Remember, it's prolly the longest 18650 battery, so u need to double-check whether it'd fit ur device)
I've had these for a while. Gone thru many charge/discharge cycles... and it holds full charge everytime out of the charger besides lasting the longest among my other 18650 Li-Ion batteries. And I'm a vaper, nearly a 'chain-vaper' at that, using these on my Mechanical Mods. These are Lithium Cobalt configuration batteries, not the IMR types. So, not high-drain, but rock steady in output and lasts a very long time. There are many 18650 batteries in the market, but this is the MOST TOP-END among them, Panasonics are known to be. And this one, from Fasttech, is an ORIGINAL Panasonic - Made in Japan. This NCR18650A is a "nipple top" battery, note that. This one is the longest in size out there, so beware. It just might not fit all your devices. Among e-Cig Mods it will NOT FIT a Caravella, or a GP Paps, a Roller etc. those which do not have a play area inside vide a hot-spring, or are sectional tubes. However, it fits perfectly inside a Telescopic Mod, for the fact that their sizes can be 'elongated'. Thus, it's fine with the GGTS, K-100, China GG etc. And also is fine with Mechanical Mods which have a 'spring' at it's bottom post like the Sigeleis (#8, 13, 19, 20 etc.), for the fact that the spring can be depressed to accommodate various sizes of batteries. An important aspect of this battery is that it is "fully protected" as below: -------------------------------------------------------------- 1. A PTC (Pressure, Temp., Current) Switch. This protects the output of the battery against high-pressure, over temperature and unusual draw of current. It cut's-off the output in such a scenario and also automatically resets when all's clear. 2. A CID (Circuit Interrupt Device). Which, basically is a pressure valve AND is collocated with the PTC. It 'opens' the electrical path if an over-charge raises the internal cell pressure to 1000 kPa (145psi). 3. A Safety Vent. It's usually a hole at the bottom of the +ve post that releases gas (CO2, vaporized electrolyte and other combustive gasses) in the event of a rapid increase in cell pressure or a chemical malfunction. 4. A PCB (Protection Circuit Board). In addition to the above three internal safeguards, an external electronic protection circuit unit (looks like a round PCB) prevents the charge voltage of any cell from exceeding 4.30V. Furthermore, a fuse cuts the current if the skin temperature of any cell approaches 90°C (194°F). To prevent the battery from over-discharging, a control circuit cuts off the current path at about 2.20V/cell. It also resets automatically once the snag has been overcome. Thus, in summary it has: --------------------- a) Overcharge protection b) Over-discharge protection c) Overheat protection d) Short-Circuit protection e) Over-current protection f) And has a Heat-Resistant out cover BOTTOMLINE: It is thus, the most protected and efficient 18650 LiCoO2 battery money can buy. Which makes it perfect for our Mechanical Mods, it they can take it in that is (size wise). They came 90% charged out of the box, holds truly around 3100-3200mAh & 4.2V out of the charger and I'm fully satisfied with them. Needless to say that at this price of Fasttech - these are a steal.

I don't suppose I need to write anything further since I enumerated all possible 'pros' of this mod. Needless to state - I AM AMAZED at this Clonic offering of a nice device. This is made 1:1 of the Nemesis vW (yes, I have the original) ~ each part is interchangeable and fits one another perfectly. [URL=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/202/6nwz.jpg/][IMG]http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/9619/6nwz.jpg[/IMG][/URL] China has done it to perfection - this is pretty much a hi-end mod, even if it didn't carry the logo. That sound manufacturing it has received.... looks gr8 - feels right! Performs astoundingly well... exactly like my other hi-end devices (ref. my signature). It is the epitome of forgery / counterfeiting too. I bet no one can tell the difference between this device and the original Nemesis when kept side by side. Neither by looks, not in performance. This is made to mimic the original to the hilt and is detailed to the teeth. An exact replica! It got an artistic manufacturing process too. The producer has gone to every detail ~ used the best materials, good gauge steel, gave it the requisite M20/1 threading, which are buttery smooth, finished with a clean 'brushed' body tube and superbly 'polished' locking ring and the AFC. So far so that its sub-sections align seamlessly when attached. Something which is only expected from a hi-end mod. This is not your typical Clone. It is a work of Art! A job Very Well Done. Yes, the shipping is a kill. The wait is exasperating. Took me 45 days to receive it. But, as you unravel the packaging - you see something so beautiful that it mesmerizes you. Gone is your pain (of that stupefying wait). And then when you fire it - Voilà, you feel the Raw Power vibrating thru it's veins, aka steel. This one is a workhorse! Made immensely well at that. At this price it is unbeatable! In fact it is a God Send device. You cannot go wrong with this purchase ~ and might consider getting ONE MORE... I am doing so! Go Get It Fellas, else you might be losing on an opportunity.

I typically vape sweet, fruity/candy type e-juices. Thus, fetched this one primarily to dilute some of my hi-end juices which are 24mg and were getting bit harsh on my Kayfuns. However, after receiving it I put it on my Trident Dripper and Wow! Just Wow! This one felt superb enough by itself! This is perfect for guys like me, ppl who prefer sweetish vape. I must say, "I am impressed"! For this peanuts price - this one tastes absolutely like the hi-ends. Very nice & smooth in the mouth... fruity in the inhale and sweet in the exhale. It definitely gives a fully saturated vapour, warm & moist... with a clean gummy bear flavoured aftertaste. The vape leaves you totally satisfied and wanting for more... yes, that good it is. I have ordered the 'Low' Nic one, which probably is something around 4-6mg, which is a bit low. I'd suggest getting it's 'High' or 'Medium' version instead. I'm ordering the 'Medium' one right now. NOTE: Going by the vapor quality I'd guess these are 80/20 PG/VG, b'coz it does feel more PGish, b'coz it gives you good flavor & TH, but the vapour is tad weak. However, once mixed with some pure VG, or with my existing 70/30 juice - it surely enhanced the feel. Overall, I give it a 10/10. A full thumbs up for a good juice - in a super low price.

PROS
1. Cheap 2. Colorful 3. Holds 11.5ml juice 4. Strong and robust outer casing 5. Value for money 6. Strong Keychain Belt
CONS
1. The inner plastic bottle is tad flimsily constructed. It'd've been nice if that bottle was little stronger. However, at this price-point it's not a deal-breaker.
I must admit this is one very nice accessory, a must have, for our "out-n-about" mod baggy. I'm totally pleased with this product. It's worth every penny spent. Looks nice, feels nice, works nice... this is a strong contender to the Innokin U-Can AND at a fraction of its cost. I'm aware of the "leaking issues" of the Innokin U-Can, thus was thinking twice to pull the trigger on this one. But, thought why not? It was quite inexpensive to give a try. And there was a surprise awaiting -- this counterfeit U-Can Replica works stupendously well. Holds much more than what it's advertised for, the squeezing action is perfect - juice flows out easily, it is constructed well - AND it DOESN'T LEAK. I've carried it all day today. Tossed it in my pockets. Threw this in the car boot. Wasn't seriously careful about it in my pockets -- and it didn't fail me. There was not a single spec of juice/moistness anywhere. I wholeheartedly RECOMMEND this product. It's a job well done √
