    Default How can I tell what is compatible with my E-Cig?

    I have the kit in the picture below and I'm thinking ahead about where to buy my batteries when they need replaced. The manufacturer wants $34.95 for a new battery but I'm thinking I can get them much cheaper than that. The manufacturer (TECECIG) doesn't seem to want to disclose any specifications that would help me determine a possible alternative replacement battery.

    The only information I could find about these batteries is that they are 2.6 volts.

    When it's time for me to replace a battery, how can I determine which brand/type of batteries, if any, are compatible with the cartomizers and chargers that I already have?

    Thanks.

    They may be 808s. Its a tricky one because Tececig say they sell 808s and 510s on their forum.

    In this pic the cartomizer on the left is 510, the one on the right is 808.

    Do yours look like either of these?

    Thanks, kiwivap!

    Yes, mine look like the one on the right. Does that mean that I simply need to look for 808D-1 batteries? Do I need to be concerned about the threads or is that what 808D-1 means?

    That is what KR808d-1 means. That tells you what the threading is.

    I suggest getting replacement parts and such at SmokelessImage.

    The person i bought my first kit off was the same way. I asked about the thread type and voltage and they practically ignored my first few emails but keep it up eventually they will give you the answer. Also i told my company i would continue to buy the e-liquid off them as long as they told me the thread type. Ofc i didnt but it did get them to cough up the answers i needed pretty quick

    If you want a real good battery in 808 I recommend the volt from smokeless image. Unless your Ecig was made with some type of proprietary connection, which I hate when vendors do that, the volt should work fine on the pcc.image.jpg

    You could try some 808 cartos. Smokeless Image have them and Kanger make them too:

    This is what concerns me the most. I want to make sure I'm buying a compatible battery.
