    Default Riva 510 charger will work with the eGo -T 1000 mAh batteries?

    Hi,

    Just wanted to make sure if my Riva 510 charger will work with eGo-T 1000 mAh batteries (the new one w/ the 5 clicks on and off)?

    thanks
    Lai

    Any fast USB (Input DC 5v, 500 mA; output DC 4.2V, 420 mA) charger (Joyetech or Riva) will work with any 650, 750, 900, 1000+ mAh) eGo/Riva/Hello/Tornado battery.

    I agree with what Katya said.

    I also encourage you to have a spare charger on hand. You don't really want to be without a spare. Those ponies at the Post Office only run so fast, so you could find yourself without a charger for a few days.

    Remember: have a back up, then get a back up for your back up for your back up for your stash in case the world ends - or something. I think the Boy Scouts have a be prepared motto :-)

    I have 2 Riva 901 sets. If I get a Riva 510, is the 901 charger compatible with the 510 battery, and vice versa?

    No, different connections. I don't think the adapters work either.

    I know you're the expert but I found this on the website
    The Riva 510 USB charger is a fast charger and will charger the 750mAh Riva battery in around 2.5 hours and it will also charger Joye/Janty eGo and Tornado batteries. It is not advised to use this charger on standard 510 batteries as it will likely damage them.
    And since the ego-t attys work on RIVA batts wouldn't it be the same connector?

    Could you double check for us and update the website if necessary?

    Thanks Paula. You're about the only one I've seen to suggest this and I realized that none of my nifty new gear will work without a charged battery. Now I have a backup charger BEFORE I need it.
