New Trustfire 18350 IMR
Generally I have found Trustfire to be variable in quality, from fairly good to excellent.
I was interested to see what their first IMR battery would be like, an 18350:
İmage

Here's how it performed at 1A:
İmage

And at 5A:
İmage

It looks like they need to think again on this one, the standard Trustfire protected 18350 looks like a much better battery.
Anyone tried them for vaping?

For vaping,

I think you will find the Torchy as good, if not better. At higher current of 5A plus, the AW is better.

I normally vape about 1.8ohms @ 8 watts how many amps is that and how much is the Torchy? Wher do I but it? Is it the same length as AW?

I have now found you on vendors, only question left is are they the same length as AW, the Efest is slightly longer which gives me problems with some bottom switches.

I make that just over 2A. The Torchy are the same length as the AW samples I tried.

At 5A discharge, the Trustfire is pretty bad compared to Efest amd AW, not that you would need such a high current for vaping:

Now I see why these are so bad. I bought them on ebay. I just received some directly from Trustfire and they are top quality. I'll do another post shortly.
