Sony VTC 5A 18650

An upgrade to the previous VTC 4 2100mah which had lower capacity and a lower continuous discharge rate. Sony’s famous Sony VTC 5A  18650 2600mah cell produces a continuous discharge rate of 25Amps , which is the best money can buy for Vaping purposes in the 18650 size form factor. This allows for greater wattage output for much longer.

How long can I expect to run it and for how long ?

You can run a single VTC5A at 45 watts with a 0.5 ohm coil for the entire day easily. At 50 watts and over you will get most of your working day before the wattage will have to be steadily decreased. In dual 18650 mode in supported devices, you can expect to run at 70 watts the entire day without issue as low as 0.3 ohm. From 80 watts and higher you will likely need to recharge at some point in the late evening.

What’s the limit ?

Some devices support 3 or even up to 4 cells. These devices can run 120 watts for two days straight provided they are regulated mods. Higher wattage can be achieved for more advanced coils but we cannot quote estimated lifespan due to the variability of advanced coil designs available on the market. If you are using a mechanical mod device then make sure you know ohms law well and test your coil builds and mod thoroughly.
