    I recently purchased some 18490's for my mini. When searching, I found many warnings regarding fakes. This led me to order from either RTD Vapor Genuine AW Batteries at RTD Vapor or ProVape.
    I went with ProVape since I was ordering a mini extension cap anyway.

    Thanks for posting.

    Yikes, but sadly not uncommon. There are a number of places I know have authentic AWs besides ProVape. I have bought batteries from all of these vendors, except for Fluid Vapor, but I have ordered other things from them.

    RTD Vapor - most of the time the least expensive, unless there's a coupon elsewhere
    Super T Manufacturing
    Vaperev
    Sweet-Vapes
    Fluid Vapor (great prices, but they seem to always be OOS)
    ElectronicStix

    I don't know if these are also fakes but this company has legitimate products and good reviews. I actually believe these are a little more than Provape, just was buying other stuff.

    I forget where I read it (RTD, I think) but all new AW's as of Feb or March of this year now have a silver backed logo, black text & holographic AW's in the background.

    Sun-Vapers is absolutely legit. Edward (the owner) was actually the person who worked with Kanger on the design of the original Protank. He is obsessively meticulous about the quality of everything he sells.

    I'd totally trust Sun-Vapes to only get real AW's. That guy knows what he's doing.

    Another trustworthy vendor - and great pricing.
    NiteMods. He's also got an official vendor thread somewhere here on ECF - you can order by PM. In and out of stock a bit - but this one too - a guy who knows batteries...

    I buy my batteries for my Provari from Provape..... I know I can get them cheaper but I would rather be safe than sorry. :toast:

    Living in Florida, why would you order batteries from Alaska? That seems odd...
