Best Batteries For Vaping

Before I start, here’s a little video by VapingWithTwisted420 (such an awesome dude with a ton of helpful videos on YouTube, just in case you didn’t know) showing us what a world of difference it makes when you use a reputable battery.

Notice how much more vapor comes out when he switches the battery. If you use tanks, then E-Go style batteries should be fine.

However, if you plan on getting into sub-ohm vaping (aka cloud chasing), then you should start getting something more heavy duty. It is said that E-Go batteries can not power anything under 1 ohm.

So here are some of the best rated batteries, from 18650’s to 26650’s.  These batteries work great for RDA’s, mech mods and sub-ohm vaping.

1. Sony 18650 2600mah 20a


Since mechanical mods started becoming the craze, Sony batteries have always the choice of the majority because of its power and reliability. Once upon a time, it was damn near impossible to get these online. Now the production has increased, these great little things are more available now. But watch out, there are also a lot of knock offs online so make sure you are buying from a reputable seller.

2. Efest 18650 2500mah 35a


Back then, Efest was a “meh” type of brand. They were good enough to do the job, but that was it. Now, with their recently released 18650 35a battery, people have started giving it better reviews. A lot of people were quite surprised with its performance, while some even saying they perform better than the Sony 18650 batteries.


3. MNKE 26650 3500mah 50a


Now here is a beast. If you have seen a 26650 mod (examples would be the Hades and Stingray), this is the power behind those ginormous units. Big in size and power, this is vaping on steroids.

What would your choice of battery be and why? Leave a comment below.

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!

  1. Excellent post, this is definitely something that a lot of people won’t realise as it’s not common knowledge. The facebook post and youtube video is brilliant, glad VapingWithTwisted420 called them out on it.
