These batteries can certainly be run in mechanical mods, but you can see that the safety threshold for these is far below the AW IMR18650-1600 batteries.

AW IMR batteries are (generally speaking) the only batteries I use in my PVs.

I have charged these batteries in a Nitecore Intellicharger i4 and i2.

Battery Data

I see lots of people asking for information on the batteries they are using for vaping on different sites and forums. I am going to start collecting stats and information about the batteries used in vaping, so that I have a single place to direct people for this information. The problem is that I only use a couple of different batteries (but I know how to find the right information). So if you notice a battery that you are using but it is not listed here, please let me know so hat I can add it to the collection.
