    Hello

    I’m wondering if anyone could offer some advice regarding batteries?

    Today I had my delivery of a voo poo drag ,

    And a delivery of Samsung 25r batteries purchased batteries with Fogstar

    Which I ordered to go with the voo poo drag ,

    On reading the instruction manual with the voo poo drag in the small print it says :

    Please use high rate discharge batteries over 35A recommended ,

    Does this mean I have purchased the wrong batteries to go in this device ?

    Or that they recommend batteries with a 35A rating for high use wattage ?

    I only plain to use this mod at a wattage between 30 and 40 watts being the maximum with an obs cruis 2 tank ,single coil version ,



    Mainly purchased as spare battery/mod,


    I’m hesitant to set up the device and start using the voo poo without seeking out further advice ,

    Would this device be safe to use with the Samsung 25r 18560 batteries?




    Kind regards ,

    that's not something you need to worry about. at 'a maximum of 40w' you have the equivalent of 20w per cell .... you could run much lower amp rated cells than 25R's without issue. I would have recommended 30Q's really, you could have had a bit more battery life then.

    Very odd indeed to recommend batteries what don’t exist ,,,

    This had me scratching my head ,
    I even searched for 35A 18560 and couldn’t find them ,
