    That is a bad thing?

    The hubby loves that I am doing this. I don't groan about trips to the hardware store anymore. LOL

    I'm still keeping it simple. I hate having to fiddle with stuff so I can vape.

    I've probably got close to 20 RBAs and since Thanksgiving I'm been using nothing but - Davide toppers. Maybe once the new flooring is done I'll have some fiddle time and break 'em out again.

    Watts do not matter. Its all about wire temperature.

    checking my voice mail and finding messages from my family 3 weeks old asking if I'm still alive? bad.
    going online to discover that some major event (like a world war) occurred 2 months ago? bad.
    Only doing any of those things because the lights don't work because I forgot to pay bills? very bad!!!!!

    As I understand it with the making and selling of batteries - the quality is determined by the quality / density of the lithium in the battery. I am not sure of the details, but when they make the batteries - they are sold in lots by this quality / density level. Your AW, Panasonic, etc. batts are the ones that came out of the manufacturing process better - they last longer when you use them (hold a better charge) and will last longer before you need to replace them (take more charges - as long as you are not over charging them)... The other point is the circuit quality in the protected batts - they are added by the battery brand (Efest adds or has someone add the circuits for them). The batts that are rated at a higher level sell for a more premium price - the lower quality ones are cheaper.

    Lithium is a very expensive ingredient - no one is going to sell you a higher quality batt for a less than profitable price. Now this is not saying that when AW or who ever buys the higher quality batts that they do not get duds - but there is a less of a chance for this with the higher quality batts. That is also the reason for fakes - buy the lower quality batts and wrap them with the higher quality skins... Not an expert on this - but I have read a lot.

    If I got it wrong - please enlighten me. I buy the better ones from what I believe are trusted sources...

    Good Mornin' Folks,

    First, I'm way late to the party, but... HAPPY BIRTHDAY IFFY!

    brrrrrr... It's 12 deg. under my carport!... and that's on a digital remote therm. inside a box.. the open air one outside the kitchen window says 8! That's cold to this ol' Georgia boy, ya'll!

    OT:

    MikeE3, your 13"+ PV looks like my Vamo "feels" to me in '650 mode w/ a Puritank on it! Too long!... I gotta stock up on '350s.

    Myranny, glad you got your KFL figured out... there's a lot of buzz about the KFL+/91% clones lately, it's all over ECF. I'll probably get one eventually, play with it awhile, give up, and then it can join the AGA T2 and RSST in my vapocalypse box.

    On a positive note (for vaping in general): I heard an ad on the radio this morning for Madvapes - on a nationally syndicated morning show!!! where many of their commercials are read "live" by one host, the other host comments, and a "conversation" ensues. They talked "live" about Madvapes' good products and C.S., but also about how good e-cigs are in general. They stopped short of actually saying e-cigs could be used to quit smoking, but they danced all around it. Sounds like MV is going to be a regular sponsor... hopefully so. Goooo Madvapes!

    To users of "big-batt" mods, "Y'all be careful out there."

    I had an 18650 (almost?) go into "run-away" mode this weekend!

    Luckily, I was in the laundry room (aka my vape lab), just a step away from an outside door. I had a towel spread out on the dryer, changing batts and filling toppers. Took a '350 out of the Magneto, screwed out the inner tube, put in a fresh '650, and screwed the top back on with an Evod/510 adapter still attached. Before I could even put it down, it got really HOT, really fast. I unscrewed the top, dumped the HOT batt. out, and took a step back. A few seconds later, I heard a "snap" and "sizzle" from the batt. so I grabbed it with a towel, stepped outside and threw it on the ground. It never burned or "exploded", but over 5 minutes later it was still too hot to handle, and the temp. was in the 30's that day, so I left it alone for another 1/2 hour.

    I don't blame this on the battery, somehow the mod must have "dead shorted" it. I guess the fact that it didn't even swell up is a testament to the design safety and quality of construction of the Sony 10A (SE US18650V3, green one). But this one's now at 1.53v, so it's toast.

    I don't know for sure if this was my fault or not, but I do know one thing:

    I'll never again re-assemble a mech mod with a topper still attached!
    Are e-cigs "safe"? And do they actually help you quit the stinkies?
    1) They simply have to be better for you... 3999 less chemicals.
    2) YES.

    Yikes! Glad this didn't have a tragedy ending. Good post in that it reminds us to respect how we handle our batts / PVs, though.

    Eric Gormley even goes so far as to say DO NOT STACK BATTERIES! He is very proactive on liability issues.

    ...taking deep, direct lung hits off a mega vapor producing mod is like sniffing the flower so hard that you actually snort it right up your nose. (from poster cxm322)

    I'm no expert about stacking batteries, but I have read about the danger of doing so in several places. So, I quit doing that. But, umanbean was speaking about a single battery (18650). But, still a good idea (your Post) for anyone to be especially cautious if they are stacking batteries.

    then flavored water is a gateway to pop, beer, wine, and hard liquor."---Agree! (Stolen from skydivntrkr)

    Pretty much the same here Mike. I've got lots of RBA's that work perfectly fine and a few I've never attempted to use but they've been sitting for months now in favor of other juice deleivery methods. I'm sure someday I'll go back to using them
