    i dislike auto battery's they are flawed by design and do not stand the test of time. you cant drip at all with auto battery's and if a cart leaks it might short out the battery as there is a open air hole for it to leak inside.

    I have two of the new XL auto batteries I recieved yesterday and I Have to say I like them.
    They have a draw between my auto passthrough ( which I think has too light of a draw.) and my XL autos I got about two months ago ( too stiff of a draw). They also feel slightly lighter.
    Hope this helps some didn't know if you meant the regular autos or not.

    When i first started vaping I only used manuals, but as time went on I found myself trying the autos more. I like not having to press a button when I draw. The new autos that I have gotten in the last couple of weeks are great, easy draw and seem to hold the charge a bit longer.

    If it weren't for autos, I wouldn't have started vaping, and I wouldn't be vaping now. If it weren't for autos, I'd be putting more effort into inventing new autos and less into cartomizer research right now. ;)

    I have a couple autos that I've been rotating since September and they're still going strong. I use them because I'm lazy and it's more relaxed, like smoking a cigarette.

    I received a couple of the new style short auto batteries last week and really like them so far. The air holes in the threads are a bit smaller, which is a welcome change. The last batch of shorties had way too much airflow IMHO, but these seem much improved. I will no longer have to modify these batteries to get the draw where I want it.

    Was that an XL? The old XL autos had really small holes in them. I personally didn't like that in the auto, but everyone has their personal preference on that.

    The NEW Reg and Shorts should actually have smaller air holes and a tighter draw compared to their predecessors.

    There are a few solutions if you feel it's too airy. The easiest one is probably to cut a very small piece of a condom and slide it over the connection. You can adjust the air flow. The one that I like is to put my fingers over the holes top and bottom. I do that without even thinking about it.

    And last but not least, if those don't work, break off a toothpick in one of the holes. Just make sure it's a very small piece and flush with the threads. After a while the batteries have a tendency to "gunk" up so you can take the toothpick out and get the draw back, or clean it. This is especially true if you fill a carto a lot.

    I prefer the manual batteries, but a buddy of mine (who I talked into vaping!) ordered a kit with autos. I took one of his batteries for a test spin, and they're ok. I would be very mindful of over filling though. I have a habit of doing that sometimes.

    Its a NEW Reg, it has smaller holes but it's still really airy to me, my other shorty was perfect and it had bigger holes. If i put my finger over the connection it works pretty well. It just seems like there is too much air coming in and the battery won't cut on when uncovered.

    I have them both 2 manual,6 autos,I like the autos better, I use my hands alot of the autos comes in handy for the the manuals I use when relaxing time comes around which is not often. But I do like autos over the manuals.

    I am assuming they are new as they don't look like the ones I got before.

    They're "new" but not "new-new".

    i just received 2 of the new xl auto batts and they both have an excellent draw - not too airy and not too tight - it's perfect for me... now i will tell you that i purchased 2 of the regular batts ( they're not the new batts ) but the one has a perfect draw and the other has an airy draw, which i don't like at all. i'm working my way around it, i put a condom over it. i don't really like to do that, for some reason it gets in my way.. go figure... maybe i'll try the toothpick... i hope this helps you..
