We at Aspire want to thank Mooch for his honest review of our new 18650 and 21700 batteries, and appreciate the opportunity to address the discrepancies from our testing and Mooch’s testing.

As for the discrepancies, let’s start with the mAh: different battery cells, the test result will be different, after our testing, we round up to the next highest number as is common in most industries. Mooch rounds down to the next lowest number. As for the “A” rating (AMP), our markings are for pulse discharge rating(which is similar to the actual use ) and not continues discharging rating. The discrepancies are due to different standard and format, even though our numbers differ from Mooch’s numbers, we can assure our customers that our batteries are solid performing batteries (as shown by this review), with a consistent safe history of battery performance.

After many conversations with Mooch, we have a greater understanding of how battery markings and information should be for the Vaping community. So we changed the mAh and “A” rating(AMP) information on our new 18650 and 21700 batteries as below:

18650 battery: for the capacity information(mAh), we change it from 3000mAh to 2900mAh; For discharging rating information(A), we change it from 35A(pulse amperage) to 20A(“CDR” continues discharge rating )

21700 battery: for the capacity information(mAh), we change it from 4000mAh to 3800mAh;For discharging rating information(A), we change it from40A(pulse discharge rating) to 25A(“CDR” continues discharge rating )

Lastly, we would like to inform all of our customers that the supplied “Battery Safety Chart” that comes with your new Aspire battery is a guide for usage, it’s now outdated, we updated it as below:

In conclusion, Aspire appreciates the time Mooch has spent with us to help correct our testing for the vaping market, and as of today, we will be making a running change to our battery jackets and packaging to reflect the proper markings that are suitable for the vaping market.
It is our hope that as we do this, the Vape Industry will follow suit to correctly market battery information to the vaping community.
