    because generally they do make good ecig accessories and batts

    im using their evod mt bcc clearos and i love the convenience it offers, only downside is the small wicks in the attys which tend to get gunked up pretty quick

    Kanger seems like a reputable company with well made and designed products, voluntary recalls are good.

    I hope all companies that have a product with a problem follow after them. All we need is something to start a fire or blow up and give the government more to feed off.

    3400 is the highest that I'm aware of and just about any vape store has them. You can even get them on amazon.com or eBay.

    I saw on another site where a lady didn't turn her e-cig off before putting it in her purse and it caught on fire. I used to do the same thing before reading the article.

    It's just the Evod battery purchased from a particular vendor at a particular time. Please see the link above to the Kanger announcement. :)

    Looks to me like a responsible manufacturer taking sensible action. Good to see:)

    As for the purse fire:
    EVOD batteries have 5 click protection. Most regulated eGo types do.
    To activate this simply push the button 5 times in 2 seconds, the battery will not fire again until you repeat the 5 click process.
    The button on an EVOD is set almost flush with the surface of the case which should make accidentally pushing a little bit harder than a regular eGo.

    I have SIX of these, three 650's and three 1000's.
    I know that ONE of them is OKAY, but I'm STILL waiting to hear about the other FIVE!
    I'm glad I have my BACKUPS!

    Its best to turn them off but you really shouldn't have that problem with an evod battery because the button sits flush. It could happen but much less likely than with a battery with a raised button.

    Pretty cool if you think about it, they know the exact vendor the bad batteries went to...did not know they had serial/lot numbers.
