Thats a good point. I change mine several times a day- haven't paid attention really to how often. But usuallly around 9, noon, 5, and 9. Between noon and 5, I usually grab a quick nap- so no useage going on. So even with other life activities going on, I'm still managing 3-4 hours, which is pretty good when I don't have time to vape during the times I have to have my hands busy with the kids (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, bedtime, naptime, etc)
I love the 901 atty but battery time for me was terrible 1 or 2 hours max, so I made a mod, now the battery time is 9hours or so.
When I first got my 901 the batteries lasted for 6-7 hours of chain vaping, but within a week or so they were down to lasting about 4 hours and by the time I switched to the 510 I was taking one off the charger as the other was dying and hoping it would last until the other charged.
perhaps what you are typing is true ... like you said, for the vast majority. so, i shall leave it at this. i am happy with what THIS 901 set has done for my sense of non smoking sucess. if this is a beginner set, so be it. i dont' care. it works. it has kept me from buyng cigs which were killing me.

i have put out my point of view, as have others. i will stick with the 901 until, i guess, as many have pointed out, i will want to gravitate to another model.

I ditched the batts long ago. I use a "box mod". It uses 3 rechargables for 4.1 volts and a charger/power source for times when I don't need to be portable. The advise you are getting about the higher power batts and/or a passthru is the way to go. They are more expensive but as said many times, you get what you pay for. My $.02. BTW, the 901 atty seems to work very well for me.

I have both the 510 and the 901, but just recently I have been using my 901 more often than my 510 purely because the flavor of my JC juice is more evident with my 901 and I like the flavor a lot!!
The 510 does heat up faster and deliver a bigger vape, but the flavor is massively different. 1 month in and now it's all about the nice flavors for me.
MMMmm Tennessee Smoke Cured!!
I also had a delivery of the original recipe for TSC and it is certainly different and resembles a smokier flavor, but I have to say, I actually prefer the new recipe.
SLB 901's have by far been my best vape. When I was researching e-cigs before I bought, it was the one I had picked, but got talked into the M402 as the 'dream' ecig at the time lol. Like sucking a milkshake.
Got the 510 and it quickly got me off analogs where the 402 failed, but the wick is crap. Tons of vapor until it starts disentegrating. Battery life is a joke, and the vapor reduces pretty bad after about 10 hits on the battery. I think the atty needs more voltage.
Got a 901 and it's everything the other 2 aren't. Great smooth vapor. TONS of it. Cart lasts longer, easier to refill, the battery life is phenomenal. I only have 2 batteries and they are more than enough.
True SLB's are reliable. Absolutely no complaints here.
I love my 901 though I confess to not loving it with the batteries. I use mine with a passthrough and it is hanging out of my mouth darn near all day. Great flavor, great vapor! On the batteries - the draw gets harder and I prefer to deal with my 801. My 801 is my newest and it has become my go-to device. The battery life is great and I love the coolness and flavor of the vapor. For a power hit, I grab my 510 (it is what I use in the AM). So for me, they all have their place.
I still love my 901 but it's been moved to the second shelf once the Yeti took over.

Try soaking the atomizer overnight in water or cola. Then let it dry completely. If the atomizer is over a month hold it may be time to get a new one.
