    To be safe, you should have a battery rated for over 10A if you are sub-ohm-ing.
    Additionally, use 4.2V in your calculations, not 3.7V, as 4.2V is what your battery will be about with a fresh charge.

    4.2c will diminish rapidly. The battery provides most of its service voltage at 3.7.

    Of course you can plan for the higher surface charge and should, for me being above 2 ohms 90% of the time it isn't a problem.

    Hi, new to the forum.

    Stellar info on Li-ion batteries. I just bought some Ego-T's and wondering about the myths of charging as I do it for the first time on these. This video attempts to dispel those myths and I'm wondering if his info is correct.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Charge your batteries when you get them until the the charger turns off. You can charge them anytime, they don't have to be run down. There is no memory, and their use cycle will be longer if you recharge them sooner than later.

    When they are charged, unplug from the charger to be extra safe. Your batteries are programmed to stop the charging when they are full, but no use trusting a 2 cent circuit if you don't have to. Ego type batteries are volatile chemistry.

    You don't have to discharge them ever to "0%", if you could even do it. So that part is right, although he says this is "sometimes true".


    Welcome, by the way.

    Awesome reply Vapowulf, many thanks.

    I've spent about 9 months waiting for my Ego batteries to discharge before charging, and careful not to use until fully charged again. With all the misinformation out there (and some abject laziness on my part), it wasn't until today I'd sat down and really looked into proper Li-ion battery care. The insights in this thread have helped immensely.

    Also, thanks for the welcome.

    No worries, Jay Ray. You will get optimal use over the long run from your batteries if you keep them more charged than discharged. You don't have to wait until they are fully charged until you use them, although it is better to do so, and you don't have to not run them down until they blink and need a recharge, although it is better not to do so. But all things in perspective, they are each probably cheaper than 1 pack of smokes anyway, so the material gain is negligible.

    The main concern over ego-type batteries is over-charging. They are basic lithium polymer which make them safer in theory than other chemistry batteries and inherently resistant to overcharge, but contain other elements and are sealed which also make them inherently dangerous. There are millions of ego batteries in circulation and only a few relative reports of them exploding, but who wants to be a statistic. Thus, caution urges, just un-connect them from the charger when they are done. There are different batteries sold as "ego" but have different programming for charging. Some will blink a number of times and turn off (one thinks), some will flash red/green at different intervals until fully charged.

    All things considered, that's a great point of comparison, as the Ego batteries I have used regularly for 9 months still hold a good charge after letting them run down every time. I'd gladly spend $15 a month on new batteries and still walk away with shekels in my pocket.

    Will always unplug when done for safety now. Thanks.

    The only thing I'd advocate for is online retailers carry some sort of common standard for information dealing with Li-ion, as a number I've come across offer contradictory information. Ah well, can only blame my own lack of interest to learn in the end.
