    I'm not sure this post is on the correct thread, so Mods feel free to move it to where you feel it belongs.

    I just receive a Lady Pipe RS-888 and it is totally awesome. Tons of vapor and a great throat hit. I just have one small problem. One of the batteries only holds a charge for about 2 hours. I know they are supposed to last for about 500 puffs according to what I've read about them so I obviously got ahold of a bad one...I think. I just put my second battery in after it finished it's 12 hour charge so I don't know how long it will last either.

    My question is, does anybody know where I can buy some spare batteries for the Lady Pipe? I prefer the supplier be in the US but will also consider an overseas supplier.

    Thanks Pete, I appreciate your reply. I don't think those batteries are rechargeable though, are they?

    Phillydes, I have just ordered a 4 pack from e-bay for $18 free shipping. They are battery #14250 but I will not be 100% sure they fit until I get them.

    Pete, the +pole looks a little tall on those?

    No you are right sorry, I had only looked the size up quickly last night and bookmarked it without really reading it.

    Vince,

    Thanks, but again I don't think those are rechargeable, are they? They may be worth it though if they last a long time, but I prefer to get rechargeable spares if I can find them.

    They are lithium,click the image for description, Far as I know all lithium are rechargeable. What would anybody want with non-chargeable batteries?

    those batteries I had found were lithium and I had thought the same thing about lithium...but after reading the page ....it says 'single use'

    I'll do some checking, the ones I ordered are Lithium thionyl chloride. Can't say 100% if rechargeable or not at this time.

    EDIT- The Lithium Thionyl Chloride battery is not rechargeable. Do not use.

    Have you checked Deal Extreme? They seem to have every kind of battery imagineable.

    PS: There are plenty of non-rechargeable lithium batteries. Must look for those that are specifically rechargeable.

    I went to Radio Shak yesterday to look for these same batteries and found out that they are not rechargeable. I don't know enough about Lithium batteries to know the difference, but I'm fairly certain the 14250 batteries are not rechargeable. I tried to read a little about the Lithium-Ion batteries and it does talk about charging/recharging, but is there a difference between a straight Lithium battery and a Lithium-Ion battery? I guess I'm not smart enough to figure it out. Maybe one of our electronic gurus on the forum could help us out.

    Phillydes, thank you so much for your input in this matter, You just saved me from blowing up my batteries and charger. I was under the impression that all Lithium batteries were rechargeable and they are not.

    Phil, I almost made the same mistake when I went to Radio Shack looking for SD batteries when I first got it. They have the right size and specs battery in the single use format, sold as a camera battery, but of course way too expensive in comparison to the Deal Extreme batteries.

    Me too I am glad this question came up.....I would probably have brought a couple of the batteries without reading the details properly!!

    Thank you all for your inputs...Not only are we becoming expert vapers, but battery experts too.

    Vince...Great find, Dude!!! I don't want to rain on your parade, but I'm still not sure that one will work either. It's rated at 300mAh...If I remember correctly these atomizers take around 1,000 mAh to work properly. Let's all keep looking to find one rated at around 1,000mAh.

    yvilla, thank you so much for your input also. I looked in Deal Extreme and didn't find the correct battery though either.

    The charger that came with the pipe is only rated at 450mah so you will have to get a better charger.

    again I am not really sure.. but I think that's only to do with how fast it charges...it will still charge the battery to it's full potential.
