What is the Best 18650 Battery in the UK?by Nicole Wood Best Vape Pen UK What is 18650 battery?
First of all: 18650 batteries operate the best for the longest amount of time when used at about 20*C, or room temperature. Obviously, batteries are going to ‘heat up’ when in use – so the lower the operating temperature, the longer their lifespan (and the less of a possibility of overheating).
Secondly: these batteries are basically lithium ion batteries of a specific size and used for a wide range of different applications.
How to find the best 18650 battery online?
In order to find the best 18650 battery in the UK you need to know different cathode materials because there are a number of different types of 18650 batteries available on the market nowadays!
So look a this list:
IMR – LMO: Lithium manganese batteries Commonly used for vaping and flashlights. These types are much safer than most other types of lithium ion batteries.
INR – NMC: Lithium manganese nickel batteries This type of battery works extremely well for vaping, because it uses manganese but adds some nickel to the mix–making it a hybrid. It has low resistance and high energy.
NCA: Lithium Aluminum These types of batteries are most commonly used in electric bikes and cars.
LFP – NCO: Lithium ferrous phosphate nano co-crystalline compound This type of battery isn’t produced very often. It’s sort of a rare chemistry, and it is unlikely that you will encounter it as you search for an 18650 for your vape pen.
ICR – LCO: Lithium cobalt This type of battery delivers the highest specific energy of any type of 18650 – but you need to be careful as they're quite dangerous! If you plan on using this type of battery for your vape pen, you should definitely look for models that have built-in protective circuitry.
IFR – LFP: Lithium Phosphate These types of batteries tend to have lower voltages, so they’re not usually considered ‘high drain’.
