    Maybe I'm not reading the site correctly, but doesn't the standard unit use 1 x CR-123a/16340 battery @ 3.7v?

    It seems you need the extension tube to get 2 x CR-123a to get 6v.

    Kimmy, you've got one - can you please confirm this?

    Damn... the more I look at this thing, the more I want one. :?:

    Yes with the standard you use a 3.7v you can get an extension sleeve which replaces the standard sleeve and you can use 2 3.0v. I was very taken with the fact that it is so customisable. My first mod and probably my last for a while. Got lots of options to experiment with. :)

    Hang on, the guy who makes the chucks has already modded his design by placing vent holes in the end cap. Pretty much any e-cig with lithium batteries runs the risk of venting (exploding). Protected batteries simply reduce the risk.

    If I had an elephant stamp, you'd get it.

    Casey replied explaining that their payment gateway doesn't allow international orders - despite their cart showing Australia as an option. :cry:

    I've offered to pay by TT, so fingers crossed...

    Dinium - thanks for those links - GREAT~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    Gizmo - just to clarify - if you keep following that thread - the guy wasn't even using rechargeable batteries - so you can attribute that to 'user error'! Jeff is now 'venting' all new Chucks and will vent your cap if you send it back to him. :cool:

    Need some help guys. I have a Tornado and a green smoke e cig. I am not confident in bringing the Tornado out in public and the green smoke e cig is kinda crap. I am looking for something that can not turn heads in public as much. Cant decide on the 510 or the 901 or can someone recomend something else. The 510 would be handy cause then i have the chargers and the carts from the tornado but i really dont mind please all the help you can give in this matter would be appreciated. I like throat hit dont care so much about vap and battery time but i do care for quality (something that will not break or chew through atomizers) thanks all.

    Mate, for a standard vape you can't go past the 510... I have got to the point though that I cant stand a normal vape and need the 5-6V vape, so I take my xhaler everywhere with a 901 atty attached.

    Thanks Darkmonk. I really am leaning towards the 510 just thought i should have something different since the tornado is probably the same but more powerfull. Still deciding

    SD not here yet? ;)

    I find the ego/tornado pretty much on par with the 510s - it's the battery life that is the key difference.

    If you really want to avoid standing out - go the 501 White Auto/Manual battery with one of the new 510 soft tip cartomisers from HC.

    [​IMG]

    You can't get much more inconspicuous than that... especially if you could find a 510 white auto battery with a red led. :cool: The prefilled 510 cartomisers aren't getting great reviews for their taste, but I'd assume they'd clean/refill just like the KD808Ds.

    Also - don't forget that you can't use your tornado/ego mega usb charger on normal 510 batteries - it'll blow them. 8-o

    Thanks for the help everyone. I will get some 510 white bats from ecigz.com.au and some atomizers from him to. thinking of going manual (does anyone think that the autos are ok i heard they go of for no reason). I am getting them from him cause i want to support australian order sites otherwise i would order from health Cabin as they have everything including the soft tip cartomizers. He tells me he should have the order in by tomorow. If anyone is ordering from Health cabin and could fit in some 510 soft tip cartomizers with their order i would be so gratefull and fix them up with the money (they are like $7). Once again thanks for the advice.
