    Hey guys! Just started vaping around a month ago, even though I'm a non-smoker and I seriously love it! I was using the Ego-t beginner e-cig and wanted an upgrade. My initial plan was to buy the lavatube (which I did) however, it was out of stock. So, instead I purchased the itaste SVD! Here is a link to the exact model which I bought Wholesale Cigarette - Buy Original Itaste SVD E Cigarette Innokin SVD with Iclear 30 Cartomizer And Variable Voltage Wattage DHL Free Shipping Best Qualit, $96.59 | DHgate I'm just currently waiting for it to arrive. However, the other night I realized that it didn't come with batteries lol! So, I bought the following stuff from eBay:
    - [h=1]2x SAMSUNG ICR IMR 18650-22P 10A SDI Li-Ion 2200mAh 3.7V Rechargeable Batteries (link)[/h][h=1]-[/h]Brand New Battery Charger for 18650 Rechargeable Li-Ion 3.6V 3.7V (link)

    I'm just wondering now; will everything match up correctly? I just want to be 100% sure that those batteries are correct and that the charger will support the batteries which I bought. Thanks for reading and I look forward to your responses.

    Decided to buy http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TrustFire-TR-006-Li-Ion-Battery-Charger-18650-26650-16340-3-7V-4-2-Fast-1A-UK-/360747563088?pt=UK_Sound_Vision_Battery_Chargers&hash=item53fe3af850 I know it's like £10 more expensive but I guess it'll be worth it in the long run!

    The batteries should be ok, i have never used that sort before, so maybe someone else can help with that. The charger will work, but i would recommend buy a better charger, i would never skimp on a charger or batteries for that matter. I have a Nitecore i4 charger and am very happy with it, Xtar make good ones too. Either will run you £20-£30 but will charge 4 batteries at once and charge them safely.

    I agree with Rob-Manc-UK - don't skimp on a battery charger or batteries. In fact I'd bin that chrger as soon as you get it - sorry but it's just too cheap & there are some very dodgy cheap chargers being sold on ebay :(

    Thanks for the response. I think I'm going to have to cancel the charger which I purchased and go for another as the one I bought only has a 3.2v output. I don't think that'll charge the batteries which I bought.

    Second on the charger. I use a trustfire and I like the fact that it charges the batteries slowly. The SVD always does well in reviews. Good luck and have fun!

    I'm also not too sure about the batteries as they are protected & the SVD already has built in protection.

    Edit - just re read the battery description & it says non PCB, so I think you should be OK, but hopefully someone else will confirm this.

    Hey, I've read about the batteries and they're pretty recommended for the SVD. How about the new charger?#TrustFire TR-006 Li-Ion Battery Charger 18650 26650 16340 3.7V 4.2 Fast 1A UK | eBay

    Any suggestions on a charger in that case?

    The SVD is a regulated (variable voltage) mod. These require an IMR high drain battery, which those SAMSUNG ICR IMR 18650-22P batteries are. So the batteries are a great choice.

    The Trustfire charger is just "ok", not the best but you could do worse. If you can find a UK vendor that sells Xtar (SP2 or WP2-II) or Nitecore Intellicharger (i2 or i4) chargers, I suggest upgrading to one of those soon. http://www.rtdvapor.com/online-store/battery-chargers

    Thank you. Just ordered it, only 1 vaper in my house and that's me. I'm not a chronic vaper either so 2 bays is more than sufficient! Thanks for all your guys responses.
