battery drains too fast?
Hello!

I received my kbox mini a few days ago.

I'm worried that it might be defective as I'm currently going through 2 x 18650 batteries per day. I'm vaping at 19.8W with the 0.6 coil, can't say that the device is overheated and I never leave it on when not in use.

When using the Vamo V5 (also bought from fasttech) I get a day's worth of vaping from just one battery.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Which batteries?
How old?

I'm chewing thru when I subohm- but was ok on +ohms.
my kbox mini seems to read full over-long, then drop normally.

Looking forward to sticking it in a drawer as back up, lol
noob forever

Thanks for the replies. I'm using IMR 18650 batteries with the oldest one being 1 year old!

Depends on how much (ml) you vape each day, and what cells your using.

My subox seems to go through cells (samsung 25rs) at the equivilant rate to my other devices.

2x 18650 at 20W seems off, one cell will last me the day, with 2x tank refills on the subtank, at 25W.

For me it depends on how many mAh the batteries have as well. There's quite the difference between a 1600MaH and a 2500mAh.

Thanks guys!

My bateries are 2000mah. I just have the feeling it's not normal going through two of them per day.

No, it's not normal. I have the same set and one battery like that usually lasts a few days.

Whats the "brand name"?

How old are they???

Increase your mAh... Get at least 2500 mAh. Very popular and cheap.
SKU 2706700
Or... even more mAh...

SKU 2363400

Living is the only thing worth dying for...
