Battery safety is very important with all electronic devices and this is no different for e-cigarettes. The news is full of scare stories about e-cigarettes exploding and this is pretty much always down to user error.
We’ve used and researched a lot of batteries here at ELFC, so we decided to make this list of our top 5 18650s. However, bear in mind that all batteries can be dangerous if misused and there are a lot of clones and re-wraps out there.

Very long lasting battery. Best used in mech mods with a coil resistance of above 0.3 ohms, or in regulated mods under 100 watts. Many regulated mods capable to doing over 100 watts require batteries with amp limits of 25 or higher.
Best used in mech mods with a coil resistance of 0.25 or above, or in regulated mods under 100 watts. Very commonly used and highly thought of battery in the vaping community.
Another commonly used and trusted vaping battery. Good in mechanical mods with a coil resistance of above 0.25 ohms, or in regulated mods up to 120 watts.
A very long lasting battery (even longer than LG HG2) in our experience. Good in mech mods with a coil resistance of above 0.5 ohms. This battery is best suited for regulated mods running at under 25 watts.
Not the longest lasting battery but definitely worth considering. Good in mech mods with a coil resistance of above 0.2 ohms, and probably the best on this list for the highest powered regulated mods.
