    Just a little update: Well it took a couple of weeks but I was able to drain one of the questionable auto batts to dead status via keying the L.E.D. light. Threw it on the charger for 8 hours, unplug and replugged the charger for another 2 hours when the indicator light read green and the results were the same, battery life=30 minutes.

    Given that these batts sport the newer 4 hole design I think the original prognosis is correct. These batteries are not truly compatible with the wall rechargers or pcc's, it's a logic problem.

    Again....FOUR holes? I have batteries purchased between Feb. and a week ago.....NO four hole batteries. Please carefully double check.

    Does anyone know if there is any reason that vapor would irritate my sinus membranes more than analog smoke? I have chronic sinus problems and also am a migraineur, albeit mostly controlled. Since I started vaping, I have had a noticable increase in sharp throbbing pain in my sinuses that I usually associate with either an oncoming migraine or sinus headache. It seldom gets to the full-blown headache stage, but it's getting more and more frequent as I vape more and smoke less. Drinking more water seems to help, but this is making me nervous, because it is increasing.

    Thanks, oldies!

    I'm not an oldie but I've read about several people having problems like this and their doctors told them that vaping dehydrates you, so actually drinking lots of water is the right thing to do, especially if you find that it helps. If drinking more water helps I don't think you have any reason to worry more about it. Hopefully someone will add more to your question, there's a thread called e-cig and health on the main forum, you could also ask there or look around for the same problem G'luck!!

    Vaping does dehydrate you.Its worse in the begining.Drink lots of extra water.The water will also help flush all the smokers stuff out of your system.
    Its nice to be important,but its more important to be nice.

    You may also have an allergy to PG, although I think there would be other symptoms. You could try vaping VG only, but that may not be the problem. If it gets worse, don't hesitate to see your doctor of course.

    We rarely find that people have good sense unless they agree with us

    One of the symptoms of too much nicotine is headaches.
    If I have a day when I vape more than usual, it is usually
    accompanied by headaches. Perhaps your strenth is too
    high?

    +1 Sallyem I was thinking the same thing. I have mixes of different mg's and I can always detect any over 18mg by the way the nic makes my sinuses numb out.

    As for the 3 or 4 hole design, it appears the only problem is the 4 hole. Remember the limmerick/poem contest? Well, I hooked up a buddy and V4L sent him a kit. That kit had 2 black 4-hole batts, after testing Chad sent 2 more out, same problem.

    Since the kit was free (contest) I decided not bother V4L again over the matter. Up till then I had never seen the newer 4-hole regular auto design. I still have my original 3-hole batts from my starter kit, a manual XL, and they work great.

    In the meantime my buddy got frustrated so I sold him my only mod a Buzz and I bought Varivolt.
    I also read on the V4L sight under the reviews of the auto regulars that this is a shared problem. I played with all 4 of the 4 hole design batts and I must say when they work, they work great!

    Like your new avatar Sally!

    UPDATE: Based on Sallyem's advice, I started mixing my 11mg flavors with some 0 mg menthol I have and my headaches went away. The bad news is I had just ordered a lot of 11 mg and "medium" flavors and carto samplers to try on the juice sale. I guess I'm going to have to order some 0 mg juice flavors to mix with those. Too bad about the carts, though.
