    I don't want to be the first person to find out you can't.

    Reading through the manual I see nothing different charging wise. It appears to be a standard eGo passthrough charging system.

    Some of them you definitely cannot. Best to call your supplier.

    Probably find a new cable in a drug store, or just about anywhere.

    Don't have one but take a look at this thread and particularly this post #42 by a supplier associate:

    GotVapes North America Premiere: NEW SLB eGo-V MEGA V3 1300mah VV and VW eGo Pass Through - BLACK & Stainless Steel - an eGo Can Do All This?!

    "No, it cannot be charged with an Ego charger. If you try it can blow the regulator circuits and ruin the batt. It can only be charged with the USB cable."

    Go to first post to make sure it's the same device......

    I'm pretty sure I saw a review on YouTube that stated you could. My question is: Why would you want to when you can charge/vape simultaneously?

    Thanks for that. & Yes it's the same device. Glad I didn't blow mine up in the cause of experimentation.

    I agree. That's what I liked about the Trueman RS/TF1:

    "1. eGo-RS battery can be charged by an eGo USB charger directly. The usual charging time is 2.5 hours.
    2. eGo-RS battery can also be charged by an external charger. The output of it is 3.7v 450mah. The charging will stop automatically at 4.2v when it's fully charged."

    Zenvaporusa had this confusing statement :-)

    "This still does not have an eGo charger option for charging (by screwing the connector area into your standard eGo charger although it appears it will as is does screw into an eGo USB charger. But, the batteries were charged so I could not test this for sure. The manual didn't have any information other than that you plug it into a USB power source to charge such as the powered USB port on your computer or a car USB adapter (we would recommend an adapter that provides 2amps which we sell here at GotVapes). The display also, of course, shows the voltage you have set from 3.0-6.0. "

    But nothing at gotvapes.
