Welcome on TECF, The Electronic Cigarette Forum.

My first 18630 battery gave out

Power for the Electronic Cigarettes

Postby Roy » 30 Jun 2012

This was a really odd one to me. It charged like normal for quite a few hours until the green light. Then . The thing drove me .

It registers 3.7v on my meter, but won't run anything. I tried a 3.7v motor, light bulb, and of course my atomizers. NOTHING, but it still registers 3.7v.

I figure it has 3.7v but not enough guts left, and the protection circuit won't let it discharge.

The Battery is about 10 months old, used every other day, and was charged every other night, so I suppose I got my $11 worth. The other one is still truckin along.

So....off to Batteries Plus tomorrow.

Roy, where did you buy your 18630 battery from. It is highly likely that it was not original and this is why it gave our so quickly and strangely.

Well, mate, I think that 10 months is the normal period in which such batteries give out. Of course, it is possible for them to work for longer but you just didn`t have luck.

In my opinion, this is just about a bad fortune, normally 18630 batteries work for longer time, yours probably has some defects in it.

I agree with Cherif, I often use 18360 kinds of batteries and I never experience serious issues with them, so this is just an emergency case.

Even if we consider that this is an emergency case and an exception, it is still quite conerning that even high quality batteries like th 18630 ones started to cause such issues.

Don`t worry, guys, this is possible, if the battery has been used for quite a long time, especially if it has not been maintained properly :) So, don`t worry so much about that. ;)

Oh, if the battery is expensive, Deepeyes, there is definitely a lot of to worry about :D My batteries have never given out, not even my 18630 models, so I think that we can be calm about these devices :)

I have never used a 18630 battery and I can`t be competent enough about this topic but surely, giving out of the battery is not a normal thing, it doesn`t matter what type it is, it doesn`t even matter if it is expensive or not ;)
