Well it’s been several months of use of the Aspire 18650 battery, and it’s time to a proper review.
One word: AWESOME!!
This battery is a definite thumbs UP, must buy battery!!!
I have gone through a couple of 18650 batteries and this is so far this has been my new “go to” battery in my Aspire CF MOD holder. The main thing I like about the battery is how long it lasts compared to the other brands of 18650 batteries. Previous batteries, they were really strong at the beginning, then they would decline consistently with lower and lower vapor production. I would have to charge them prior to the CF MOD LED would turn orange, indicating it’s time to charge.
The Aspire 18650 battery, you get a couple of strong hits, then it levels off and stays there for what seems like an eternity. Basically consistent hit after hit after hit. Then I notice that I get a couple of weak hits, and then the LED on the CF MOD battery holder turns orange. Which then I take it out and charge.
I can easily go through 5 ml of juice in my Atlantis v1 5ml tank (0.5 ohm coil) on one Aspire battery. The other batteries there was no way I could get through 5 ml of juice on a single charge in the same setup, even when they were new. 2 ml of juice, yes. But not 5 ml of juice.
So if you want an all-day vape battery, this is the battery to get!!
Now I did order 3 batteries, but only use 2. Why? Well I did an inadvertent test of the shorting out of a battery. I have to say the battery handled the short perfectly by venting properly through the positive side of the battery (where the vents are). The only damage (besides my ego and pocket book) was the shrink wrap label around the battery melted off.
Note: THIS DID NOT HAPPEN IN THE CF MOD BATTERY HOLDER.
It was in a bad battery charger holder. Even then the holder was not damaged, except the positive tab was welded to the battery. But just prying it off the battery, and a re-bending it back into shape, it was good to go.
Even if the battery shorted out in the Aspire CF MOD, it would have been a non-issue, since the CF MOD is vented at the bottom battery cap. But this does enforce the need for battery holders to have short circuit protection AND proper venting. No matter what battery chemistry is used.
