    Not to down play the OP but I have been enjoying my 1300 mAh Vision Spinners for well over a year and have no complaints at all. Things can and do go bad from time and I am sorry that this happened but we would be doing a disservice to so many folks if we make a mountain out of this incident just because once in a blue moon something like this happens. JMHO

    For what it's worth, that's one of the reasons I bought a Provari - the safety issues. Although he still uses them, my boyfriend made me pretty paranoid about the possibility of the batteries exploding in our Twists and Spinner. The Provari gives me a LOT of peace of mind.

    I've had no problems with the spinner batteries up until this incident. I really like the size of these,and the chance to vv.
    I find it highly unlikely this would happen again,so using it like I always have.

    I went ahead and ordered the provari today. I wish i had bought it ages ago,but like so many,i've gone through the different stages before ending up with the provari.

    I know it had to have been a very nerve racking experience for you but now we can all say "Congratulations on your Provari purchase" :)

    I have the volcano Lava tube and it fires my Pro tank 3 without issue?

    QUOTE=Frankster79;11945411]No it wasnt locked, but should have cut off before getting too hot.
    I Haven't looked into a new setup in the longest time since i've been happy with what i got.
    I'll go for the provari since i already have 2 barely used aw 18650 batteries and the trustfire TR-001 charger.
    From what i gather I can use those batteries with the extension cap.
    I have a lavatube laying around,but it wont fire my kanger protank,guess i will need some sort of thread extension for that.[/QUOTE]

    I was thinking of getting a vision spinner 900 or 1300 mah kit as my first kit. I've still been undecided. After reading this though, I'm a little leary and think I may stick to a kanger evod ego kit instead. I'm not sure how much I would really use the variable voltage feature.

    ^ Yeh, I've had a Vamo sitting in my backup cabinet for over a year along with all the batteries and charger. I got a Spinner and a Slip for backup as good deals. So far all my ADV juices taste best at 3.3 anyway or, at the most, 3.7... so yeh backup but I don't consider it wasted money... backups for my backups ya know. :)

    I had a kanger ego upgrade bramd new go crazy, when i put a evod on it nothing lit up, i wasnt even holding it, i heard sizzle and popping, picked it up it was hot.
    Had to take the evod off the battery.
    It cooled down but then wouldnt turn on, put it on the charger and it made a high pitched eeeeeeeeeeeee sound, unplugged it and it was hot
    Never used it again.
    I still habe it because im unsure of just throwing it out.

    Among other things, 3 Vision Spinners in use for a year. No problems at all.

    Remember the exploding IPod (Pad?) batteries? Did that mean all of them were suspect or bad?

    Similar technology, and yes, there can be the rare failure, but it's really pretty safe, when treated properly.
