    Hi

    Are there any Ego/volcano type Ecigs available which have a replaceable battery, such as I can just add any AA Battery if it goes flat. ?

    Something along the lines of the following only better quality
    Sparki SP3

    Thanks

    There is the e-Power 14650. It doesn't take AAs but it does take replaceable batteries that you can get for about $5.
    Crystal Clear Vaping

    This is a very good deal on the best version of the e-Power. Great vendor and lots of freebies in this kit.

    I will say this about the Sparki. They're liars.
    They're claiming 24 hours off a single 16340 800mah battery.
    That's a big, fat lie.
    Personally, I wouldn't deal with a company that lied so blatantly on their website.

    Also, they have some oddball connection, so you'll have to buy replacement atomizers and cartomizers from them.

    I smell scam.

    Edit: It's worse than I thought. They don't even use cartomizers. This thing uses the old obsolete atomizer/cartridge system that people stopped fooling with sometime about 2 years ago.
    Don't even think about that P.O.S.

    To answer your question about AA batteries. There are a couple small mods out there that people are making that use AA batteries. The problem is that they generally can't handle the current draw of a decent e-cig.
    I've never seen a practical e-cig that takes AA batteries, and I've never seen one commercially available except ones that take a large 18650 sized battery pack consisting of a bunch of AA batteries.

    If you're looking for something the size of an AA battery, the 14500 is the same size but in a lithium.

    The 14650 in the e-Power is the same diameter as an AA, and about 1/2" longer. (15mm)

    Hi

    thanks for the replies.

    This e-Power is what Im looking for. but they only sell to USA, Can you recommend another good store that sells to outside USA. ?

    the battery does not have to be AA, any long life replaceable battery is fine.

    Thanks for the tip on Sparki, I will avoid shopping there.

    Ahhh.. That's too bad. That's a tough one. I don't know of any other reliable vendor that sell that model with the good switch. I'm sure there is one somewhere, but I don't know about it.

    There are a lot of other PVs that take replaceable batteries, but not like an eGo style. I have one that I recommend very highly, but it's a bit more expensive and it doesn't come with any extras. OTOH, the vendor does ship internationally because another member from Australia (or are you in Austria?) got one just the other day. It takes a single 14500 battery, which is the same size as an AA. It's super high quality and will probably outlive you. I've run mine over with a truck, dropped it overboard in saltwater, buried it overnight in mud and dropped out a moving car window. And it still works like new. If you want something that's super high quality, it's the best. It's also small enough to hide in your palm or fit in any pocket. It's called the BB and here it is. It comes in black, silver vein and silver.

    Actually, that's not what they claim. They say it can last UP TO 24 hours. And that is technically true. It could even last more than a year, if you don't use it.

    Like a disposable e-cig I got recently. They stated: up to 400 puffs (2 packs)! I got 140 out of it (14 cigs), but I can't say they lied to me. The "up to" covers them.

    By the way, don't even think about using regular (disposable) AA's you can buy everywhere. They don't have the right voltage. PV's require 3.7 volt nominal, regular AA's are 1.5 volt, or something like 1.2 volt when they are rechargeable.

    18650 batteries are where you want to be. Stay away from dual battery mods that use lithium ion batteries. Those are the most likely to experience differing voltage reverse charge meltdowns.

    IMR batteries are safer than Li-ion batteries. The chemistry can take higher heat without failure and can deliver higher amperage without producing high heat. In an E-power you want one that uses IMR 18650 batts, IMO.

    i use 6 AA 1.2v rechargeable batteries in my mod so don't disregard these batteries completely as they give a good vape. as for atomisers they are great if you know what you are doing. cartomisers are good for newbies.

    Joyetech makes a 18650 tube mod, EmpireMods has it for $20 - Joyetech eGo-T 18650. It can be charged with a regular eGo charger, uses all 510 and eGo threaded gear, can be used in regulated or unregulated mode, and has the 5-click shutoff feature.

    It takes anything with a 510 connector. Works great with a tank like a Vision Stone. Fits like a glove.

    I would have to respectfully disagree. If you saw them side by side, it's pretty obvious that the 18650 isn't the unit the 14650 is. It's cheap and "tinny" compared to the 14650. Flimsy. The smaller unit is built a lot better.

    I was under the impression that the OP was looking for something that wasn't huge. And wanted better quality than the sparki. If he's o.k. with a big PV, the Silver Bullet would be the way to go.

    thanks for the great replies

    the BB mentioned seems to have great reviews.

    I have also added the Joyetech, Silver Bullet to my list.

    also thankyou for the detailed info on Batteries.

    I found that Madvapes. com, sell the epower ecig for about $50

    I will definitely be buying one of the mentioned ecigs in this thread.

    thanks again

    Im not sure if Sweet-vapes.com ships to aus, but if they do, they sell the 14650 Epower for a really good price. Full kit for about $41. Worth checking out

    Oh Man. You are right. I've been to Sweet-Vapes a million times and always thought they only had the 18650 version which, IMO, isn't nearly the PV the 14650 is.

    Of course, if he's considering the BB or the SB, that's definitely the way to go. The e-powers aren't even in the same class.

    I hope the OP sees this. If they ship to Aus, that's a better deal than Madvapes. Plus, it seems MV is a bit backlogged on shiping stuff.
