    Default Extreme battery lifespan?

    Hi, I'm new here. A couple weeks ago I got the Apollo Extreme mini kit in the mail—and now I am a fan. Have since ordered refillable cartomizers and some e-liquid.

    My question is: what is the typical lifespan on an Extreme battery?

    A 250mah battery will not last long. Couple hours maybe

    I don't mean how long will it last before I recharge... with my habits, I recharge once a day or so. More like... how long before I have to replace it?

    I appreciate the info. What's weird is that the day after I asked that, the black Extreme battery I'd ordered for my husband melted when charging in my computer's USB port. It got very, very hot, and I'm thinking could have caused a fire. I contacted Apollo customer service, and they're sending a replacement battery. But I got an email today that maybe explained the issue... it warned to NOT USE the charger that came in the free Extreme mini kit to charge any battery EXCEPT the single Extreme battery that came in the kit.

    I am happy with the response from customer service, happy to have gotten that email (even if it was after the fact,) and happy to be getting a replacement charger... but I really should have gotten that email MUCH sooner!

    Is Apollo stopping shipment on the "standalone" Extreme battery from the mini kit? If not, is Apollo at least sending out an email RIGHT AWAY to anyone who orders them? It is a very, very serious safety issue.

    Was your husbands battery the same type as the one that came in the mini kit?

    It was, except it was black. The mini kit was a free promotional thing I sent for that came with an Apollo Extreme battery (white), two filled cartomizers, and a USB charger. No info printed on the packaging that the battery was "standalone" and other Apollo Extreme batteries should not be used with that particular USB charger. I'm not sure what the difference is, they look the same, are branded the same, but obviously they are not.

    If it was the same type of battery, and all they are doing is replacing the charger...it doesn't sound like they're doing anything to resolve the issue. This sounds like a serious safety hazard. If it were me, I'd probably order somewhere else...

    Not exactly the same issue as yours but seems similar.
