    Going camping in June for a Fri,sat, and Sunday. How will I vape while there? Don't think 2 batteries will last long enough. Not in a position to buy more batts just yet...

    Will you have access to a car, or are you "roughing it"? If you're near a car, you can get a car adapter for your charger. If not, you'll need a solar charger. But, if you can't buy batteries, I'm sure that won't help you much. I'm afraid you're going to be stuck. Get some snus so you don't lapse back into analogs and ration your vaping. That's about all you can do.

    by june you will be so hooked the battery will not be an issue , the smell of any one smoking a cig will get your skin up more than a bear or a sheet stealer, congrats and good luck

    I'd stop off at a gas station and pick up a couple of disposable type ecigs to help get me through the weekend. I still like the Logic ecigs I picked up at a liquor store when I first started vaping. They were $11 each, though and one hardly lasted a full day.

    Expensive.. but hey, so are cigs.

    You could get something like this solar power usb charger It'd help with cell phones, ipods, etc. I also like You'reFired's idea of having a couple of disposables as back up, just in case. If you don't like the solar powered charger, you could always try one of these: airemask.jpg LOL

    Yep. That should work as long as your car charger puts out 5V.

    What kind of batteries/pv do you use? If you can't afford extra batteries then you prolly can't afford expensive smokes either:confused:. You have a month to save up $25... If you use 510 style, get a couple of cheap ego style 1000mAh batteries and you'll always have them as a backup in the future. You may find them cheaper than this, but here the first site I found....Good luck!

    I think that charger you linked to will be just fine...

    Yeah, you should be fine with your phone adapter (like misterkai said, test it out first). I was worried about my first camping trip as a new vaper last summer... I picked up a car lighter/usb adapter from harbor freight for $5, and it worked out great. Really, it was no different than being at home. I had batteries in rotation over a four day trip without a problem.

    Yep, I think a usb car charger should work just fine. I love to camp, so I have an inverter. Plugs right into your car's lighter port and you can attach a regular house cord to it. Probably more than you would like to spend though. However, having one of these when camping comes in really handy! You can plug in smaller stuff, like chargers, lights, etc. I always have rechargeables for my flashlights, too, so I can charge those up if need be!

    Definitely test first though and make sure you bring enough juice and cartos, or whatever you are using. Most of all, have FUN!!!!

    Car charger is a big yes. But, you may want to invest in a extra batts anyway. I can get almost a week off my 3 1100mAh ego batts, but I still take both the usb AND my AC charger (my truck has a built in power inverter).

    Can you upgrade to a spot with electric? It may cost a little more, but well worth it!
