eGo-C Twist 2600 from Canvape
Finally, an all day vape at 2600 mAh without breaking the bank.
It's available in a variety of colors: Stainless Steel, Black, Blue, Purple, and Pink (note the white shown at the right is currently not available). Note: This is not a joyetech product. It is very high quality eGo-C Variable Voltage 2600 mAh battery at a very attractive price.
- Variable Voltage from 3.3 to 4.8 volts by "spinner" in 0.5 increments.
- Short circuit protection
- Auto shut off at 10 seconds
- Low voltage protection @ 3.3 volts (battery will shut down and require charge)
- LED battery level indicator: White 80%+, blue 40-79%, Red 10-39%
- 5 Click on/off feature
- Unique style twist knob on bottom
Quite frankly, I would have preferred this instead of an MVP when I decided I needed a battery capable of a full day of vaping before needing a recharge. Sure, this doesn't have pass-through – but that doesn't really matter if the battery lasts all day does it? This is a cost-effective way to get that done! And, at 87.7 grams, it is almost half the weight of the MVP too (MVP is 164 grams).
At way less than half the price, I would gladly have given up some of the MVP features (and size, and weight).
This unit is a natural progression and upgrade from an eGo style battery. It has the same familiar firing button and button colors indicating remaining charge. The firing button positioning is familiar. And the connections are identical. About the only issue that threw me off my game for a few minutes was the change in colors from blue to red when the battery power was just at that point around 39-40% remaining charge. Other than that, this is a nicely finished quality battery. And a superb value.
The eGo-C Twist features an unusual voltage adjustment ring. It sort of looks like the firing button on a mechanical mod. Having used a mechanical before, I kept trying to press it with my baby finger to fire ... that's also has a lot to do with the size. At 20.0 mm in diameter, it is approximately the same diameter as most mechanical mods that use 18650 batteries. Even there, though, this has many of those beat. This is 2600 mAh ... and a regulated device.
So, what's the verdict? Is it worth it? This is one of those reviews where I am not sure how to answer this. I plan on using this battery for a few days to determine if it is in fact 2600 mAh. This is a clone after all, and China manufacturers have a way of "stretching" the limits of credibility when it comes to specifications. When there is no brand-name on a device, I feel more comfortable with a longer term test. So, check back again in a few days when I can update everyone. Oh, and regarding one question outstanding: yes, I would buy this. At this price, even if the capacity is off by 25%, it's still a tremendous value.
My thanks to Canvape who provided this unit for testing and review.
