Chargepack losses...

Post by rg12 » Mar 15 2019 4:07pm

I have a vaporizer with 2pcs 2000mAh 18650 cells.
I have a charge pack with 3pcs brand new LG 18650 3000mAh cells.
I charged the vaporizer from 15% to 65% losing about 50% charge from my charge pack.
How did I charge about 2Ah and spent about 4 to 4.5Ah from the charge pack?
Can it be that it has such huge losses?
It just becomes slightly warm when charging, it's not that it's burning hot spending lots of waste energy...
