    I have a ticket in, so we will see. I have a manual battery that seems to be fine, I asked if they would just swap out the autos if this is a current issue with manuals since like both about the same.
    I think you're on to something -- now that I think about it only my autos (recently got two regular and one short) need to be charged twice. However I have one manual and it holds the charge, meaning the light stays green when I put it back in the charger immediately after a charge.

    My manual holds charge just fine also... It even came with the same order (not that means anything about when it was manufactured).

    Anyway, customer service is sending me out 2 new batts, hopefully these work correctly. I am sure they will get it figured out.

    If your putting them autos that won't charge in the pcc it's probably shutting down because it senses the batteries have a problem. Just a thought.

    Here's one for the oldies. How do the generic KR808D batteries stack up to the Vapor King? I've had mine for about three weeks now and I love the thing. I'm planning on getting my dad a kit to try them out, but he's a longtime smoker and I'm not sure if he'll take to it or not. I'm considering getting him a cheaper generic kit to see if he likes it first and then steering him to vapor4life thereafter. But, if the generic batteries aren't in the same performance ballpark, then that would defeat the purpose. Thoughts?

    Hit and miss. There are alot of places that sell the kr model and none of them will tell you who the manufacture of their product is (There are different manufactures). Variation in battery design can change airflow, capacity, and reliability. If money is a concern for you, stick with a supplier with a good reputation for customer service. If you find that your dad doesn't like vaping, maybe you could talk him out of his gear...win-win.

    I have a generic KR808D-1 that is a manual and it always gives me problems. The button is so finicky - you have to hold it down and push up, down, back, and forth to get it to fire. It's a PITA!

    I got mine from Good Prophets and after a month or more he replaced one of mine that was bad without any hassel. It's an extremely good vendor.

    Generics have shorter cutoff times also.
    Its nice to be important,but its more important to be nice.

    Thanks for the responses guys. Yeah, I said generic, but I was actually talking about a couple other kits from other vendors that seem to have a good reputation on this site, I just didn't know if it was against etiquette to mention other vendors within this forum. Thanks for the info on the shorter cut off time as well. I didn't know about that and that would definitely be a deal breaker.

    -Snickers- I have a question for the "Oldies". Is it true, if you do not use it you will lose it?

    I am sorry I had to, once I saw the thread for this, and thought of the 40 year old virgin lol.

    Ok time for serious questions.

    1) I have been vaping for 8 months, and sometimes I notice that I have a small trouble breathing when I am vaping,not right after but literally when I am drawing. It is odd to explain, it feels like I am short of breath. But most of the times, I am fine.

    and my other question. I have seen on here that it takes a while for nic to hit the system. For me, it hits instantly, but my vaping method is not like a smoking method, I do not drag off it and hold it in my mouth then inhale, I just inhale right to my lungs, which I know other people do, and it hits me right away. but sometimes it takes a little long to hit also, why is that?

    Now for people that say it is taking a little long for them to hit but doing that method seems to hit me instantly.

    Vape on,
    Kevin
