I’ve been starting to build lower in the last few days (I blame you all with your monster mods and car exhaust drip tips) and I’ve run into what I consider a strange phenomenon - listed in the title. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me based on ohm’s law, unless the dna75 chipset has an issue or the batteries do.
Batteries are supposedly a 35a that mooch tested at 27a and suggested staying below 75 watts (though I’m curious how he calculates that without specifying resistance)
Building .25 puts me at 16.8a. This is well within the comfort zone of this battery but even at a full charge I can’t get more than 55 watts out of it, and for a very short time.
I’m not opposed to getting a new pair of 26650 (which it turns out is a crappy battery that hasn’t received the same upgrade treatment as 18650 /21700) but I’m really not trying to run crazy low and putting any money into this battery size seems like it may be a waste of time.
If this is a battery / chipset limitation what’s a good target for the build? Which then begs the question - what’s a recommended build for mods that can’t take the low build, assuming I need to be at .4-5?
Thing is - I have built this low on a mech without any issue using 30a (18650) batteries and while sag happens fast they’ve never even become more than slightly warm.
Thanks for any assistance during what may just be a giant brain fart.
