Vapcell S4 Plus Charger Review

I’ve tested a bunch of Vapcell cells, but I think this is the first charger.  Also it’s been a long time since I tested a charger and so I ended up not testing this one in a timely manner.  This is my last remaining 2019 review item.  Sorry Vapcell and thanks for being patient!  Also I’m stating up front that my charger reviews are likely going to get scaled back.  In this case I’m basically testing the main feature, which is the ability to charge 4 bays at 3A each!!

LiionWholesale.com Samsung 30q 18650 Cell Review

I’m fortunate to have a “cell supplier” – LiionWholesale.com.  After my recent fake 30q review, I reached out with the wonder of what a set of real 30q’s would look like tested.  They agreed to send out a couple of authentic Samsung 30q’s (since they sell only authentic cells….).  So here’s a review of authentic Samsung 30q cells!

Vapcell 14500 Flat Top Cell Review

I have an awesome number of Vapcell’s in for review, and this is the first of the bunch.  These are unprotected flat top 14500 cells, and here I’m testing two of them (as always).  14500 cells are the same size as AA cells, but don’t always work in those lights, due to the higher Li-Ion voltage.
