    If you're rarely coming close to 100w for a dual 18650, sony vtc6's or samsung 30q's work well. 15/20a batteries like those two are perfectly fine for up to around 80-90w. If there's a low voltage cutoff of around 3.2v (estimated) on the mod at 90w it's only looking for 15.6a per battery. Unless you're right at 90w and chainvaping the hell out of it, then the batteries will likely warm up a bit.

    I personally only use the big name brands. I recommend:

    Sony VTC6
    LG HG2
    Samsung 30Q

    The Samsung 30Q is only a 15 amp battery (same as the Sony/Murata VTC6), which means it can handle only up to 45 watts per battery if you want to comply to general/recommended battery safety rules, i.e., only up to 90 watts with two of these batteries in a regulated mod. The LG HG2 is a 20 amp battery so it is within recommended safety limits for your intended wattage setting of 100 watts and using two batteries in a regulated mod, but at this particular wattage setting you won't get noticeably more vaping time from the LG HG2 when compared to going for the Sony/Murata VTC5A instead, and, the latter being a 25 amp battery it'll run cooler so it'll age slower, it'll charge faster due to having a lower mAh rating, and also it'll most definitely be a bit safer than the LG HG2 in addition to that.
