    Default 8 hours for first battery charge?

    Just got my Joye 510, do I really have to wait 8 hours for the first battery to charge? It will be after midnight. What will happen if I leave it charging all night. I sure would like to try and vape tonight.
    Thanks

    Ignore the 8 hour charge instruction. When the charger light turns green, it is good to go.

    Honestly... those instructions are archaic and left over from some older battery technology. They simply do not apply.

    I totally disagree. I have a used 510 batt that was given to me when I bought my 510s. That 1 batt lasts me 4.5-5.5hrs. Lasts my wife 8-9hrs. I mistakenly interrupted the 1st chg on my 2 new batts, and can't get more than 1.5hrs out of them to save my soul.

    The 1st chrg is ultra important for batt. length. Proper chrg on a new batt is:

    chrg for 8hrs.
    Vape for 20 mins.
    chrg for 1 additional hr.

    After that, chrg 4-5hrs for optimum performance.

    Never plug chgr in with a batt screwed in.

    I am living with proof that this method works. I get the theory Ni-cad batts have no memory. IMHO, that's simply not true. And as I say, I'm living with the proof.

    I'm a noob, but was taught this by my VERY non-noob supplier. So there you go. Pick one.

    <------- NOT a batt expert. I am however, living with a 510 batt that runs 5-8hrs with my wife or myself using it. My 510 that I just got new, I didn't follow his instructions and now have 2 510 batts that die after 1.5 - 2hrs. Same batt, but different chrg techniques. Soon as I get paid I'ma buying my azz an SB and forgetting all this batt changing bs.

    That link was very well written and I agree it's hard to argue with it. Seems quite sound thinking to me. Then again, I'm in sales, not science. So go figure. Just the fact I get a potential 8hrs out of a std 510 batt makes me think for a few xtra hrs, it may very well be worth the wait.

    We'll see. We'll just hafta see.

    I have twelve 510 batts and I charged all of them 8 hours before using and I am lucky to get 2 hours at a time before having to charge again and again that is all twelve.

    Well I couldn't wait so after about 4hr. on the charger i gave the 510 a try. kind of disapointed because after about 20-30, 5sec. puffs the LED started to flash and is now dead. I'll try the other Battery in the morning. Probably a newbie mistake! Just hope the learning curve is short because the analogs are so bad after 25years. It would sure be great if I could make it a whole day without an analog. A whole week would be outstanding.
    Thanks Guys and Gals

    every e-cig ive used i've vaped straight out of the box, then charged fully when it dies,

    getting 8 hours out of a 510 seems downright impossible to me, there just arent enough milliamp hours.

    Yeah, I've read that over and over. Don't know what to say. It's my wife that gets 8hr out of it. I get 4.5-5.5. And I vape pretty heavy. I'm hoping I can get the same out of some new batts.

    Shoot an email to Jeff down at whatupecig.com. He can explain it better. Claims all his batts last that long. And I have one of his old ones and that's the one I have that lasts so long. May be just a fluke but frankly I hope his methods work. Rather 4hrs than 1.5-2hrs that's for damn sure!
