Using Molicel P26A 18650 2600mAh 35A Battery
Before using the Molicel P26A 18650 2600mAh 35A Battery, ensure that you properly understand lithium-ion batteries. Keep in mind that lithium-ion batteries are sensitive to charging characteristics. They may explode, burn, or cause fire when used incorrectly.
Never leave the battery unattended when charging. Always charge it on a fire-proof surface and use a smart charger designed specifically for this type of battery. Here are other reminders you should follow when using Molicel P26A 18650 2600mAh 35A Battery:
- Do not use with vaporizer, e-cigarette, or similar devices
- Only use with proper circuit protection
- Do not store the battery in your pocket, purse, etc. Only store the battery in a protective case or box
- Do not short circuit
- Keep away from metal objects
- Do not use the battery if the insulator or wrapper is damaged
- Do not overcharge
- Do not disassemble, puncture, crush, cut, incinerate, or modify in any way
- Do not expose to high temperatures and liquids
Is Molicel a good brand for vape batteries?
Molicel is a reliable and reputable manufacturer of batteries. But if you are planning to use it for your vaping device, we recommend the Molicel P42A 21700 battery for mid to high-wattage vaping. Even though the rating for continuous discharge is 45A, you can safely discharge this battery up to a respectable 30A. You can vape with this battery at up to 90 watts of power without worrying about it getting too hot.
Can a 18650 battery work in a vape?
Most vape mods only work with the 18650 battery that has a flat top. But before you buy and use batteries with your vape, you should look at your mod's specs. Keep in mind that batteries may explode and cause a fire if used incorrectly.
Typically, we don't recommend using 18650 batteries for vaping devices. This is because taking 18650 batteries in and out of your device can damage the cell's wrapper, compromising your safety. For a safe bet, we recommend reaching out to your vaping device's manufacturer to inquire about their preferred battery type and brand.
Can I use AA batteries instead of 18650?
No. Please do not substitute AA batteries for 18650 cells, even if they have been recharged. If we assume that the three AA batteries are connected in a chain, the voltage will be 4.5 V. This is a significant change from the 18650's normal voltage, which is 3.6 V. In addition, the 18650 is not an industry standard cell. Not all of them are made in the same way or with the same goal in mind.
How long should I charge 18650 batteries?
A lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 18650 usually needs close to three hours to be fully charged. The rating for the vast majority of 18650 batteries is between 300 and 500 cycles. This means that you can charge your cell all the way up to 4.2 volts and discharge it all the way down to 2.5–2.8 volts up to 300–500 times without noticing a big change in how well it works.
Please keep in mind that when batteries are overcharged, their internal pressure can quickly increase. This can cause them to explode if they go over the allowed value. Thus, ensure not to overcharge your batteries, no matter the circumstances.
