    I use the 1 I have for my old IPOD and it works fine just make sure that you check that the Output is the same 4.2V = 150mA & Input AC 100-240V 50/60Hz

    If you are looking at that 1 on Ebay I'd send the seller a message and ask what the input/output is.

    Are you sure you mean "150mA" and not 1500 mA? 150 seems a little low. From what I recall of previous discussions, at least 500 mA is needed for a good vape. Personally, the one I use outputs 1600 mA.

    Not sure all I know is that the back of the charger for my Dura-C and Yeti aka 510 says:Output is 4.2V = 150mA & Input AC 100-240V 50/60Hz

    USB (from your computer) has a maximum output of 500mA, however most motherboards will only output 100mA until the device requests more, which ours can't as there are no data cables.

    Still works perfectly fine, though.

    Being UK like yourself, I use those plugs Mains/USB without any problems at all.

    I regularly sit plugged into the mains vaping with a Titan.....lol

    Funny.... I tried an iPod style USB from cig that was rated 150mA and it did not work on my pass. The red light came on, but no vapor. The light would only flash. I am waiting for one rated 700mA.

    Hi Brooks, its seems here in the UK electrics are a little less complex...or I couldnt cope...lol

    Lynchite, cant answer that one Im afraid, although common sense would tell me, that if anything else electrical would work, then your e-cig would also, but this is USB we are talking about, so hopefully someone else from the UK who has done this can respond.
