    Now I have no intention of poking fun or being mean, and I'm always impressed by people who speak more than one language. My own weak attempts at Spanish probably sound pretty funny in Mexico ...

    But I occasionally do proofreading for business websites and official correspondence, and tend to notice typos and questionable grammer and syntax ...

    So I'm Googling for a source for a replacement battery for an Ovale Elips, and find a Chinese website offering the unit in bulk. I swear I have not edited one word, just copied and pasted some of the more humorous segments describing the product ...

    I surely hope that no one takes this seriously, especially the "Locations" list ... :shock:

    ("oil spill" made me scratch my head, but the reference to "smoke bombs" finally made me snort coffee on my keyboard) ... :oops:

    Here's the link to the site, I'm certain there's more amazing descriptions there, sure to bring a smile ... :)

    Yeah. Businesses relying on Google translate - really bad idea.

    Why? They made it perfectly clear that "oil spill" and "smoke bombs" are "good for environment". :blink:

    Hey Chimney, I'm especially pleased that you got a good chuckle out of this ! :laugh:

    I remember you as one of the most helpful and encouraging posters here on ECF, with always a kind word and sound advice ...

    If you find some more astounding "facts" about PVs on that site, please share, a good hearty belly laugh is hard to come by these days ... :D

    You know, this type of obvious inept translation makes me glad that I buy my eliquid from a buddy that lives 5 miles away. I know they're trying and I applaud that(I could never even learn mandarin), but if I read a description of my RY4 that said it wouldn't cause an oil spill......I may just pick up an analog.

    Hey sweetie! I remember you as well! :) Glad to see you're still around! After the day I've had I needed that laugh!

    Oil spills! Smoke bombs! Gas sensing switch control!! I'm scared to put my lips on one of those 'Elips' hehehe
    Thank you my friend! You have no idea how much I needed that chuckle!
    I will most certainly let you know if I stumble on anything that tops this one:laugh:

    Not as good as yours my friend but I found 1 part of this charger description very ummmm...interesting


    Black Wall / Car Electronic Cigarette Chargers Cable USB With CE ROHS


    Quick Detail:

    Cable USB Charger for Electronic Cigarettes
    Can match USB charger to charge all kinds of e cigarettes
    Certificates: CE, RoHS
    OEM and ODM orders are welcomed


    Description:

    Electronic cigarette charger, you need the USB cable first
    Electronic cigarette with battery pole connection and then head into the computer or a USB adapter, access adapter, directly into the wall plug charger
    Full charge, the light turned from red to green
    It is suggested to inhale after the battery is fully charged
    It is recommended to store the battery in a cool and dry environment, handle the battery with great care, never drop or throw the battery against a hard surface
    It is very important to keep the battery away from direct heat and sharp objects

    The bold sections are the best I could find but the part about inhaling is so baffling to me:lol:

    As long as you don't 'head into your computer' you should be fine:lol:

    Yes, by all means avoid this juice. It will improve your health, but unfortunately also makes you a dull and uninteresting person as a side effect. Local juices are the way to go ...:thumb:

    A long time ago, eons before Google even existed, I had a "thing" that came with an instruction manual. Said instruction manual was leading me down the path of "The way of connection" to "Insertion of the golden finger"...

    Anyone care to hazard a guess as to what my thing was that required "insertion of the golden finger"? (And you better keep in clean kids.)
