    Good day.

    I would like to put my 2c in as well.
    Firstly i use a mech everyday ( VGOD pro mech 2) with a vtc5a with a 0.14 build on it.

    I know that is exceeding the CDR. But i have come to learn my cells, what they can and can't handle. I always check the wraps and the positive side of my cells if the 510 didn't dent it in.

    The heat of the cells is the other thing i check when exceeding the CDR. Just adding that i don't chain vape my mechs. I also understand that i will probably have to replace them each year rather then every 2 + years because of the way i use them..

    I have a general rule of thumb to replace cells after a year... Even if they are still fine...

    image (2).png i do NOT encourage this by me posting this...even if i use a mech within the cells CDR i still check the heat though... But i have found that my sweet spot is 0.12.

    Above is one post made by Mooch.

    Thank you.

    While you may be able to pulse your batteries above their CDR rating for a short while, a potential problem is if your mod gets stuck in an auto firing position in your pocket and you dont know about it. Or it could be in your car etc.

    Then it could overheat and vent

    Thats one of the reasons why its not recommended to build a coil that results in an amp draw above the CDR (continuous discharge rating)

    That is true @Silver

    Taking extreme precautions are vital. When im done with my mech and im out and about.. I remove the battery. If i want to take some hits i just insert it again.
