    Hello.
    I have recently been using the Eleaf IStick Pico e-cigarette. I bought the recommended Sony VTC-5 18650 link for it. Recently I realized that such links are also in power banks. I took apart my 2200 mAh power bank, pulled out the batteries and put them in the e-cigarette. The battery has been detected, everything works ok. Can I use it as safely as a backup battery? Can I charge it with an e-cigarette? Is it better to charge these batteries using the powerbank system?

    And how better to charge? Make a charger from this system with a power bank? It will be safe for my batteries. ? Because the prices of recommended chargers start from 120 PLN: /

    You can easily charge with an e-cigarette.

    Don't worry about the links.
    Free laptop batteries can be obtained from computer services, I have tried several and it has never been a problem. The technicians are utilizing it anyway.

    Advice is not good, it is harmful.
    E-cigarettes take very high currents and not every link is suitable for this!

    Yes, all of them are not suitable, but as a source of acquiring links, they are websites.

    On the contrary, the links from laptops are not high current and with this application they can cause a lot of damage.

    I only use recycled cells for various extreme applications.

    I'm using a 0.3 ohma heater. Maximum power: 75W, power I use: 17.5 W. In the case of these links, they are only threatened with their faster destruction or some more serious matters like an explosion?

    May also explode. The maximum current from such a cell is 2C - i.e. with a 2200mA cell it is 4.4A.

    I will write like this: I have already beaten some of these links. Some were squeaking, some were hissing but if something exploded I would not meet.
    However, listen to the advice of Freddy's colleague, you can never be too careful.

    Hello. I have a double-heater tank, power supply max 80W, set 35, resistance of the heaters around 0.3 ohms, unfortunately batteries from damaged laptop cells cannot cope. I buy with stock, LGABHG21865 cells, a continuous discharge current, if I remember correctly over 20A, they calmly envelop ... The main question is what current the heater requires. Cells should have some reserve of current efficiency for safety, exploitation at the border or crossing it may be dangerous.

    It is probably necessary to assume the relationship P = I ^ 2 * R, the current will come out about 11 A.

    It is correct. The cells taken from the laptop batteries did not work well with the wife's Joyetech Exceed, the heater has 1.2 ohm and the power supply is set to 15W, i.e. about 3.5A.
