Welcome to ECF Logan!! Congrats to you both and best of luck on your journey to be smoke free!

Welcome to the forum. Sorry about your charger. Anything can happen with electronics, get yourself some backup supplies.
Whew!! Close call. Backups, backups, backups. The 3 most important words in vaping.
When they quit thinking a PV is an electric cigarette, they'll quit treating us like smokers and calling vapor smoke. Best not to vape what looks like a cig. or use the word e-cigarette among the uninitiated. Vaporizers are "e-cigarettes" like electric toothbrushes are e-carrots.
Welcome to ECF. Congratulations on starting this journey in exploring a safer alternative.
Most of us are pretty assiduous in ensuring that we have backups for our backups to avoid the situation you found yourself in (where we don't have access to a working PV)... sort of a holdover from the days of ensuring we always had a backup pack. I almost always carry at least two devices on me. I'm glad your car is back working and it just took a fuse (and some troubleshooting) to fix it.
welcome to ECF. like the others have said back ups are key. while it seems perfect to split the kit with the GF and to start out it may be ok but later on you will find its better if each has at least 2 of each part. I learned that lesson a few weeks ago. I had bought a 510-t kit from one supplier and some cartos, e-juice from another and and then a spare battery and an atomizer from another. well the spare battery, atomizer, and e-juice came in the same day so I figured I would drip until the rest came in. well that didn't last long...I burnt out the atty (most likely from not putting enough drops or something) and was then stuck with all of these wonderful flavors of e-juice I was ready to try and no way to try them until the kit came in. Today though I bought me some more stuff. I went and ordered the firefly kit from liberty flights so I can have some longer lasting ego type batteries and since ego and 510 stuff are interchangeable I can use it all for the most part with each other.
i know now, and i am sad to say that i am looking into some of the cheaper alternatives, i will go to a walmart and buy a myst or whatever it is is if i have to, but i am still searching for a larger battery mod that could supplement my rather poor backup plan, which is to curl up in a ball and cry till i can vape again, then again! if anyone wants to send me a free PV... it would be rude to refuse, right? haha
also pass throughs are another good back up for batteries if at home or in a car. And they are usually about $20 or less.
Edit: i just looked it up and all i can find are the small battery ones labeled as usb pass-through batteries
Edit #2: found one, nearly $30! can i get one cheaper? http://thevaporroom.net/10egpa.html
