Happy New Year! New Lower prices for 2012! Lower prices for shipping, cells, and chargers!
Greetings ECF members and staff.
I am a reseller of AW cells in the USA, and worldwide.
Several of my customers have told me I should be on this site, so here I am.
I hope to prevent injuries and property loss due to poor quality batteries, and using unapproved chargers. I will only sell safe cells, AW approved chargers, and IMR cells proven to be safe. Please do not use any other chargers that are not listed below. Only charger AW approved but not listed is the PILA IBC charger..its expensive but worth it. Your cells will last longer.
- It is a good idea to subscribe to this thread. I cannot edit this post after 24 hours.
Please, Post your general, technical, Vaporizor, ecig, and battery questions in this thread. I will answer them there. Only send me a Private message unless you are sending private information like transaction numbers, shipping info, paypal details, stuff like your home address. I have never owned an Ecig and I would like ECF members to help me answer these questions. If I know the answer to your question I will reply there in case someone else has the same question, I wont have to answer it twice. Besides it will bump the thread! Thanks!
Quality Batteries By AW with a Proven Safety and Reliability Track Record Since 2005
AW cells do not Overstate their capacity like other brands. Even though they state a lower MAH capacity, they will last longer.
If you live in North America, or anywhere, and want the best quality cells, you buy AW. I have already had these shipped here to NYC and Miami from Asia so you can get your AW cells faster and for less money.
You will get a confirmation from paypal when your order prints and ships.
Expect two to three days (in the CONUS) instead of 7-14 days.
Why buy off brand unsafe cells from China?
We sell these for use anywhere in the world, from NYC or Miami.
These are fresh AW cells that arrive in small shipments, often. They are stored short term at an ideal voltage in a cold environment in airtight waterproof containers.
you must include your ECF Handle in your paypal notes, and the forum name ECF. I am on more than one. example: "My ECF handle is WonderLite, here is what I am buying." Your address is already provided and we only ship to confirmed addresses unless otherwise arranged.
Shipping on cells only is a mere $4 for up to Eight cells then just add 50 cents a cell thereafter.
Buy 9 cells add another .50 cents for shipping, buy 10 add $1.00 etc
- Please use a Multimeter to check the voltages on your cells after use, both before and after charging!
New Product : Digital Multi-Meter $10.00
Digital LCD display. 9v Battery included. Probes included.
refer to picture for proper setup of probes and multimeter (Dial set on 20v DCV) Black wire plugged in lower COM port. Red Wire center port (V Omega Ma)
Do not forget to turn off the multimeter when not in in use. 9volt battery is replaceable.
Use caution when using Powered multimeters. These use probes use electricity to test voltages.
WARNING: There is no protection circuit on these to control under or over voltage, just an anti explosion vent. Do NOT short Circuit! A Tremendous amount of current will be released.
These are "safe chemistry" cells that will never "vent with flame" or catch fire on their own as they contain little oxygen unlike LiCo cells.

Please make your paypal notes as detailed as possible, I wont see them. Dont forget ECF HANDLE. then post here what your ordering.
Please post Details of your order in this thread. What cells you want and How many of each. IMR or LiCo. Protected or Unprotected. What shipping method you want, and if you want insurance. Then post the same details of what you are buying also in your PayPal notes and include your ECF forum name. Thanks.
Paypal to WonderLite(AT)aol.com, Include your ECF Forum name, the letters ECF, and Detailed notes of order as well.
I strongly suggest you purchase a Digital Multi meter to check your cell status.
ANY other payment method you want is ok. Contact Wonderlite for payment address, Paypal questions, Shipping insurance quotes, and all customer service issues. All other hobby related questions belong here in the thread, I depend on other ECF members to help me answer these questions
Most questions can be answered in the thread, so others will also get to see the answers. PM only private stuff, that box fills up fast.
Warranty : All batteries sold are covered by a 90 day warranty from the date of purchase. Please keep the voltage of all LiIon batteries above 3.8V for healthy storage. Recharge as soon as possible when you have run them down. Storing a depleted ( less than 3.6V open voltage ) battery may damage/ shorten life/cycle permanently.
LiIon Battery Charge Status
4.2V – 100%
4.1V – 87%
4.0V – 75%
3.9V – 55%
3.8V – 30%
3.5V – 0%
Dispose of these cells after about 24- 32 months by taking them to a recycling center. " LiCo cells degrade as they age, sooner if abused.
IMR USERS: Attention : These IMR cells have much lower internal resistance than regular LiIon 3.7V cells and they may end up with a higher ending voltage when charged in certain chargers ( especially older version WF-139 charger ). Please check the voltage of them right out of the charger to see if they are above 4.20V when fully charged with your charger. Overcharging above 4.25V may shorten life/cycles. Above 4.50V may even pop them or making them leak. DO NOT use the charger if it seems to overcharge IMR cells.
LiCo Cells are Laptop PC technology. IMR cells are used in power tools. IMR are inherently safe so no protection circuit is needed. However -> do not short circuit an IMR cell, you will release tremendous amounts of energy! Do not use magnets or spacers inside an E Cig as the risk of short circuit is too high.
***DO NOT USE LiIon batteries if you don't know the dangers about them and how to handle them. on handling, charging, storage of LiIon batteries,. Also bookmark Battery University Table of Contents for more info. Use at your own risk***
Use special caution when working with Li-ion cells, they are very sensitive to charging characteristics and may explode or burn if mishandled. Make sure the user has enough knowledge of Li-Ion rechargeable batteries in charging, discharging and assembly before use. Always charge in/on a fire-proof surface. Never leave charging batteries unattended. We only recommend using Lithium Ion rechargeable batteries with a control circuit (protection PCB) to assure safe charge, discharge, etc.
