Sony VTC6 18650 3000mAh 15A Battery - US18650VTC6
Sony's VTC line has long been the holy grail of sub-ohm vaping. The VTC6's specs read like a greatest hits list: they're able to maintain a low temperature and long-running capacity while discharging at high amperages.
You used to have to make a difficult choice between battery capacity and discharge current. With the VTC6, you can have the best of both worlds. Its whopping 3,000 mAh capacity is double that of competing discharge batteries. Looks like they're not competing anymore! Sony rates the Continuous Maximum Discharge Current of these bad boys at 15A, but if you keep the battery temperature under 176° F, their official Continuous Maximum Discharge Current scales up to a mammoth 30A. Running your VTC6 at 19A will hit the sweet spot of maximizing your discharge without overheating.
The mid-to-high discharge amperages of the VTC line make them a great match if you like to vape at low resistances. The VTC allows you to experience the unparalleled taste and warmth that comes with sub-ohm vaping. With the correct build, high amperages can allow you to generate more heat in your coils, which leads to a warmer, more flavorful puff. Plus it's always fun to turn your vaporizer into a fog machine and astonish your friends. Cloud chasers take note!
