    Default Battery Info for the Chuck

    Copied from the Chucklehead Forum...

    The question of "What batteries do I get" and "Where do I order" comes up about a hundred times a week on the 'Saturday' thread. I just want to put as much batt info as I can here so that we can point ppl to this thread when the question comes up.

    Here is a rundown of batteries that can be used for the Chuck....

    Large Chuck:

    3.7V - 18650
    6V - 2x RCR123
    6V - 2x CR2 (need the sleeve sold at Thagbuilt.com, unprotected**)
    6V - 2x CR123 (these are non re-chargeables that you can get in a pinch at most stores to use your large chuck at 6V)

    Little Chuck:
    3.7V - 16340 (also sold as 3.6V CR123A, but make sure you get the 3.6V and not the 3V)
    3.7V - 18350 (1200mAh, orange ones unprotected**, blue ones protected)

    ** Use unprotected batteries at your own risk. While it is unlikely that anything will go wrong, serious injury and fire can result from using unprotected batteries. **


    Places to Buy:
    Look through the thread below for useful discount codes!

    MadVapes
    MadVapes LLC
    (US Supplier, good prices, carries protected 18350's)

    Battery Junction
    BatteryJunction.com Batteries, Battery Chargers, Flashlights, Solar Products & more! (US supplier usually 2-3 days to get)

    Lighthound
    Fenix Flashlights, Cree Q5 LED, Lithium Batteries, Lithium Ion Batteries, Li-Ion Chargers, Leatherman Multitools, Spyderco Knives and more! (US Supplier, good prices)

    Dealextreme
    DealExtreme: Cool Gadgets at the Right Price - Site-Wide Free Shipping (Page 1) (China supplier, best prices, but extremely long wait)

    Battery Tips:
    - Order your batteries and charger at the same time you order your Chuck, so you won't be stuck looking at an unusable piece of table art.

    - You can charge your batteries when they come. Don't wait for your Chuck to arrive. They will hold the charge and be ready for out of the box Chucking!

    Don't forget you can use two 3.7v RCR123A batteries in the Chuck for a mind-blowing 7.4v vaping experience.

    Please note, I am not responsible for any dead atomizers, or cranial explosions resulting from vaping at 7.4v.

    I actually tried that last one with 0nic juice. Imagine if you would sucking the atomized fumes from an ammonia bottle that was heated with a car battery....

    I thought about adding that, but, I didn't want to be responsible for flaming attys either.


    Also, if anyone knows any discount codes, please post them in this thread.

    I've used it on some flavors of cartomizers with some nice success, actually.

    Ok, how long of a draw do you recommend?

    At 7.4v I was hitting my cartomizers for one second or less. It gets real hot real fast.

    Nice vapor, though.

    Note: Some flavor juices do not like this voltage at all. Bleh.

    Id also like to recommend using the lifepo4 750 mAh Tenergys over the blue Tenergy 900mAh batts...because the blue ones trip every 5 secs and you have to put back on charger to reset them...VERY annoying AND cant leave the house w confidence. The yellow lifepo4s however, NEVER let me down.

    I have to also agree w Angus on the 7.4v vaping, although I use a HV atty for vaping at that level, brings it down to a tolerable/flavorable/enjoyable notch IMO so I can take usual 3-5sec drags

    Angus is just a vaping beast
