    Hello there, I got an Eleaf iStick Tria but the package came without batteries. I read on the manufacturer's site that it needs three 18650 batteries and they also state the following: «Continuous discharge current should be above 25A»
    I have found only a couple of batteries whose continuous discharge current is over 25Amps and those are quite expensive(10-15€ each). So my question is, would it be a problem if I get any 18650 battery? For example, I have found many that say that they are 10A, would the vape still work? Thanks.

    Step 1: Go to Fogstar batteries.
    Step 2: Buy Sony VT6 or Samsung 25R or Samsung 30Q or LG HG2 batteries.
    Step 3: Vape, safe in the knowledge your batteries are up to the task.

    The batteries in the site you sent me are cheaper but the problem is that I am not from the UK and as I see the sellers hasn't added an option for international shipping...

    When the site says don't go below 25A - you don't go below 25A, simples.
