20A 18350 battery?
Previously I have found Sibeile 18350 to be the best 18350 high drain that I had tested. But I was disappointed this week when a new batch of button tops arrived and I found that they have changed. Now slightly higher capacity but unable to discharge at 10A.
But I soon cheered up when I tested a new brand, ShockLi.
   
I was expecting a similar performance, but they actually performed better than the old version of Sibeile.
Here's how they compare at 5A continuous current

And at 10A

THey look so much better than sibeile, that I thought I would see if they would go to 15A, which they did, so why not try 20A? Here's how they fared:

THey look great on paper. I'll be interested to know how they perform in the real world.

RE: 20A 18350 battery?
got the trial batt today
now I cant give feed back with all the tech talk and how much drop off there was and so on
But what I can say is
with a dripper set up on 0.6ohm and one on 0.8 ohm this thing gave one hell of alot more power to the coil than the normal 18350 ones you sell. both test were on a single coil in a achilles dripper. will test it tomorrow with a duel coil to see how it goes on with that set up . but so far in the real world its looking good

Hi mate, got the battery today.. and just build a single 1 ohm coil on a tug boat for testing it. Will post thought's later Smiling
I may go lower after testing it with the 1ohm. I've already have a haze mini built at with dual coil 0.4.. roughtly 10.5 amps..

just a tad tricky with such a small mod. Smiling

RE: 20A 18350 battery?
I normally use an efest 18350 with my Erlkonigin (1ohm) and my Le Petit Gros as my work set up, would this battery be a step up, as I find the efest rather lacking and I'd be more comfortable going down to 0.6/7 ohm?

On paper it looks better and early indication is that it should be better. Once the others give some feedback it will be confirmed or otherwise.

RE: 20A 18350 battery?
Currently running it on a Super T Simplicity with a HF 20 dripper coiled at 0.65 ohms.. Put it in about an hour before I went to bed and have been vaping it exclusively since - I'm a slow chain vaper (ie constantly with biggish gaps between each vape). Power was excellent initially and remains so - (so around 3 hours so far). Voltage has dropped to 3.83 volts (on the device so include device losses) but vape still good.
