Upcoming Camping Trip - What vaping gear do YOU take when you go?
I have a weeklong hiking trip coming up in about a month and I'm in the process of packing my gear. We're very restricted on space and weight but I have plenty of room for my vaping equipment. I typically vape > 10 ml a day. I'm curious if you guys think I have enough vaping equipment for 6 days.
Three 1100mah batteries (one twist and two spinners)
Two vivi nova's (filled)
Three replacement coils
2 30ml bottles of juice
2 2200mah 'instant chargers' $7.43 JIB LD3000 "3000mAh" Single USB Portable Power Bank External Power Source - real capacity 2200mAh at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping-
I haven't used these chargers yet as they are still in the mail. They are supposedly 3000mah, but they were tested at 2200.
I'm afraid I'll run of battery by the end. Your thoughts, please? What gear do you take on your trips?
I haven't been camping since I started vaping, but one thing will be my 12v battery/booster pack. It has a usb conx that I can use to charge my c-twists.
Of course it weighs quite a bit and may not suit your needs.

Well, weight isn't the actual issue, volume is. Our trip is a competition where we can only take one standard size shoebox worth of equipment and the clothes on our back. Every battery I take is that much less room for food.
Funny you ask. I haven't gotten a chance to use it...but just posted in a VV thread. Hopefully not considered cross post.

2 - 30ml bottles = 60ml @ 10ml/day = 6 days.....NOT QUITE a week....!!
Lose a bottle....SPILL a bottle....!!
Looks like you SHOULD be set from a "hardware" standpoint, though....
Have a GREAT trip!
Happy (vaping) Trails!
Yeah batteries were my main concern as well. Try to figure out how many hours your 1100 mah last you. That should give you a baseline...then divide the sum of your mAh's by 1100 multipled by hours you get from that 1100 mah. That should give you total hours. Then multiply by 80% as you may only get a 80% efficiency rate when charging external device.

Also packing space when that becomes issue. If you are ordering from fasttech it may not get in here time for your trip though.

Hopefully both of your chargers work well and hold their charge properly. That would be my biggest concern on the list. Some mechanicals conserve battery power better IMO. This is something I've been thinking about too, so I'm interested in hearing the comments.

Your charging capacity worries me the most although not much room from juice accidents with only those two filled viva's beyond your normal 10ml per day usage.
If your trip is a month away then hopefully you've a week to experiment ONLY using what you'd be taking with you (no cheating ) to see how it goes for ya and to see if ya still feel confident you've packed enough to cover the unexpected.

I was searching for something like that for 4 hours one night and stubbled upon it today. That could be used to directly connect to your tank/clearomizer directly to those bigger "instant" chargers, power banks. Depending on type of terrain you may only be able to vape on breaks and at camp fire.
At any rate that could turn pretty much any external power bank into a mod. No idea what volts it would run at. I assume 5 V for the power banks you and I listed. Both say Output: DC - 5V .
You might want to get holster as I need two hands on steep terrain.
