I see nothing "new and improved" about the Fling minis. 3 hours of light usage (purposely babying it) and the battery is about to go. Grr!
I think that they don't get that the people that love them, don't need them.
I have EgoC, ITaste, Erolls and an 808 at home. A VV Mini Passthrough in my car. I can take an Ego 650/mini, 808 or Eroll out and about... I like the WC minis, but it has to be better than my other options, or more economical.
I love the minis, but I won't spend $3 a day, much less $6 a day on them.
BATTERIES CAN EXPLODE!
Do your homework. Understand The Risks.
If you don't understand it, DON"T DO IT!
FLING sounds like it is as bad as NJOY?? "New and Improved" NJOY KING" sucks Deluxe.
I tried a 'sample' from NJOY ($2.99 Shipping) - their "New and Improved" KING and the first was a miserable FAILURE. I obtained eighteen .... as in '18' puffs before the battery expired. I immediately contacted them to let them know that even though I was only 'out' the 'shipping cost' I was quite disappointed. They responded by offering to replace the first 'free sample' and they did so in a timely manner - PLUS they added TWO ADDITIONAL "packs" to make up for my horrible experience.
HELLO NJOY! Your literature once again indicates "New - Longer Lasting" which equates to my needing to DRAW so hard that I nearly gave myself a hernia! the experience was (and remains) HORRIBLE! The timeout per draw has been reduced from the EIGHT SECONDS on the first "free sample" to FOUR SECONDS - VAPOR PRODUCTION has been reduced by at least fifty-per-cent leaving only a TINY and BARELY VISIBLE "VAPOR"and to make matters worse the new "BOLD" taste closely resembles "HOT AIR"!
There must be one cig-alike that doesn't die in two hours or less, huh??

You can try the epuffer Nano. Its real size and rechargeable with ash tip. The carts are good for about 30-40 puffs per and very hard to refill (but can be done.). A box of 5 is $8.95. No blanks available or compatible. You may also have a look at the Krave king rechargeable. Its real size and rechargeable with ash tip. Carts are easier to refill.
ps. purchased 10 Fling minis again (have many times in the past but stopped due to performance issues.) and the performance is still dreadful. After about 10 drags, they become so weak and just give me a headache to use. Sad since they are the best price and have great flavor options. The Njoy King seem to maintain their performance until dead (2-4 hours on average) but the price is not feasible.
