    I think it depends very much on the size of the battery and the charger.
    I haven't found anything yet to take 8 hours. 3-4 hours for 18650 batteries on a soshine v3.0 rapid charger.
    When the light is green, the battery is full in most instances, and leaving it on charge won't make it 'fuller'.
    When batteries start taking less and less time to charge, and don't last very long, it's time to get new batteries.

    Don't know whether this question goes here as I'm new on here, but, why are most of the threads locked ???? Been doing heaps of reading as I'm new to this, but everything seems locked so I can't ask questions ?????? Probably a simple reason ?

    I think this forum is not very "alive". Mostly threads are simply very old and this is probably why they are locked. I have the same problem. I've been vaping for 3 years now, so ask in this thread and I'll try to answer as best I can :)

    I order from them on a regular basis no probs. I do not know where you are but in Oz I can track my parcel at this link It comes within 3-4 days and these dudes are super fast. Don't forget there is Chinese New Year coming up and they go on holidays for about a week or so.

    Over priced to the extreme I would not pay that much for a decent TC Mod. I do not know where you are but a good starter kit with Ego II 2200 mah batteries etc would set you back $54.95 Kangartech T3D (duel coil tanks also available on this kit here

    I personally avoid Heavens Gifts and FastTech and another called Focalecig unless I am despertate for parts that no one else has got in Australia. Why?
    1. It is almost impossible to track their orders once they leave China unless you pay for DHL. I do that on occasion as I do with HiLiq.
    2. With FastTech even if you pay extra for packaging the last order of 10 packets of coils arrived crushed and I did pay for extra protective packaging. I sent photos to Fastech and all I got was a $2 US credit to my PayPal account. Ok I have not checked all the coils if they are in good condition but in the past some products I have purchased from FastTech were defective and I did eventually about a month or more down the road got compensated. Cheap is not always the best option.

    Now let us progress to Heavens Gifts whom I stopped using over a year or more ago, I ordered a mod which was DOA, I contacted them and they told me and I quote" So Sorry we will send you a replacement with your next order" I was not pleased, but rather than go to all the hassles of paypal credits and disputes gave them a small order and reminded them that I was owed a replacement mod. The small order arrived and no replacement mod. I contact them again asking where is my replacement Mod?

    I get a reply: "So Sorry product discontinued would you like something else" I replied no and got a refund. Also with Heavens Gifts, I lived at the time in Sydney Metropolitan Area about 20km from the GPO. I wanted the order to come by DHL...I paid for what was I thought was required for DHL freight and then I get an email that I am outside the DHL delivery area and please pay another $26 US for aditional freight charges. I cancelled the order. The same problem I had with Focalecig. Extra DHL freight for lliving in the Sydney Metropolitan area. That order was also cancelled by me.

    I try very hard to shop local and support local vendors. As buying overseas is very freight cost prohibitive. Also with local vendors if I have a problem then I get quick replacements.

    Hello! I've decided to get back on the ecig train after a few years off.
    I went to order Bobbas Bounty. Has anybody had any joy finding it? It seems to have disappeared :(

    Gday Everyone

    Daniel is my name and Vaping has become my game!!,

    I'm fairly new to the vaping game.
    I have become accustomed to vaping DTL, the more vapour I can get in at once the better!!!
    I can smoke DTL fine with my Innokin Zenith tank but would like to give a Sub Ohm tank a try.
    Is anyone able to recommend a nice Sub Ohm tank for me to start off with(nothing too expensive) so I know if it's for me or not??
    I have a Coolfire IV Plus, 70watts.

    Thanks for the help,

    Daniel Forsyth.

    Hello All

    Looking for an Australian supplier for good premixed PG / VG / Nic (75% - 25% - 6mg per ml), to which I can add and experiment flavors. Why Australia? Because I live in Macau, I'm Portuguese but working here and want to buy from reliable source in Asia. There's many options in TaoBao, which arrive fairly fast at Macau, but I'm concerned about such Chinese vendors. For the pods it's fine, but for the liquids...

    I'm on the "quest" for the "cigarette flavor" (although experimented yesterday mixing a bit of a Chinese blue berry nic salt in the Black Note naturally extracted tobacco "Forte", and with surprise enjoying actually...) Stopped smoking 3 weeks ago after 30 years of it. It's been hard folks... !

    Using small pods, Caliburn and Odo for now and I'm fine with it. But the flavors I experimented so far... (samples and Chinese liquids that came with the devices - got them from Taobao.com together with the pods).

    I'm now sticking with a mix of Black Note natural extracted tobacco (as they say - 50 PG / 50 VG) with the above said nic salt of blue berry (6/1 proportion, cause that nic salt is damn high in nic). But I'm lacking throat hit !!! That's why I'm looking for a good premixed PG/VG/Nic (75%-25%-6mg per ml) to put flavors on it.

    Basically I'm a newbie, making lots of mistakes I guess, looking for advice, but mainly to get a flavor that can help me go through now ! And then, progressively, start testing, tasting around, studying deeper, if you understand my goal.

    I would very welcome your comments, advice and vendors suggestion, which I deeply thank in advance.

    Cheers

    I'm not familiar with any places with premixed PG/VG and Nic.
    Only PG/VG premixed or separately and lots of top quality flavours choose from.
    @Jebbn might have some good info, he's a fellow Aussie
    Good Luck:thumbs:
