Battery safety is very important.  Mistreated batteries can get extremely hot and/or vent which could cause injury.  Always follow the following rules to make sure this doesn't happen.  We are not liable for mistreated batteries.


  • Never completely discharge batteries (below 2.5V under load or 3V unloaded).
  • Charge fully (to 4.2V) before first use.
  • Never use a lot of force on the battery to install
  • Use only high quality battery chargers.
  • Do not expose to heat.
  • Do not connect the positive contact to the negative contact without an appropriate load.  
  • Be mindful of the current limits in the specification and never exceed them.
  • Never keep a spare battery loose in a pocket, purse, etc.  Always use protective cases for loose batteries.  If it shorts against a piece of metal it can be very dangerous.
  • Never charge battery 4.3V or above.
  • Do not charge unattended.
  • Do not store your li-ion batteries fully charged for an extended period of time (weeks or more)
  • If you must store battery then do it in a case or individual box in cool and dry place at approximately 3.6V - 3.7V.
  • Never try to charge or discharge li-ion batteries with battery chargers that are not made for Li-ion batteries.

    Legitimate Sony's

    Just received my Sony VTC5's and they are all I expected and more. Just charged them up and put them in my Kooper Plus 200 watt box mod and boy do they hit. I'm very impressed and very confident they are the real deal. I have bought numerous times from Liion Wholesale and back up what they sell. If you have any doubt about these, rest assured, Liion Wholesale is a legit company and they are my go to for any of my battery needs.


    VTC5 - Awesome!

    I received my batteries in about 3 business days which was great. Gave them a full charge before use with my intellicharger i4 as recommended. So far they are working great! I believe these are true genuine batteries as claimed by this company. The markings were all correct, my batteries were made in Singapore on November 6th, 2015. Everything stated on this website about these batteries are correct and true. Would definitely recommend these batteries to everyone! 5/5 stars!

    VTC5 authenticity

    Updated review: Very good support though. Sent the replacement of the damaged HG2 the same day I contacted them. As for the VTC5. Long story short.. Used it with another charger - IMAX B6. Looks like it has all of it's power. I satisfied for now. The bottom line is even if these VTC5 are fake, they as good as the real ones. Their appearance authentic at least. We'll see it how it works on a long run. [prior review deleted]


    The real deal

    I have been on a hunt for these legendary "Unicorns" of the vape community, if you will. I was skeptical at first as I had ordered not only a few VTC 5s but also some VTC 4s as well, I've pushed them to the brink, discharged and recharged multiple times over. They've been ran on regulated and unregulated devices for comparison and I have not been let down, I work for a local vape shop and I have gotten to where I feel comfortable sharing the site with customers. Hopefully they'll stick around for a little while, I plan on ordering a few more sets just to be safe and keep handy.


    Not fake

    I've seen the test results from multiple sources, these are legit.
