    Hey guys! What are your opinions on ordering from gearbest? I know they are a China based company, and the shipping does take a long time, but their prices are extremely cheap! I have a Tesla Two that I have noticed seems like it may not last too much longer, the button is a bit less clicky then it used to be, and the button is only super clicky really in the middle ish of the button, they sell that mod for like $30 or so. Are they reputable enough to trust? Or even better, recommend a site that has what I need at a decent price? Thanks!

    Og them all Gearbest is my least favorite. I'd order from them I guess but it better be really special.

    GB is a fine china based company but I agree with the previous poster only based on my personal experience with their shipping ... I've had batteries take 45 days to arrive YMMV.

    What are some known trustable places to get batteries and mods? I actually like my Tesla Two a lot, and when mine gives out, I'm thinking of getting another one. I'm not experienced enough really to get a normal mod with removable batteries yet, have to do more reading before moving up to something nicer.

    Are you wanting china based sites? :unsure:
    There is GB, FT, and I recently had a good experience with 3Fvape :)

    Also, adding this as I just saw it, they're selling it unbelievably cheap on fasttech. Is that out of China? Is it reputable?

    Found one here for 23.00 Tesla Two Box Mod | Vaping Mall The company is in NC. I have not personally shopped at that site, but it is US based if that is a factor.

    Fasttech is extremely reputable.
    They have better customer service than most authentic modders.

    Awesome! Thanks so much for the info! When my mod goes out, I'll probably get me another one, same mod. I've actually come to like this mod where I didn't at first.

    GearBest is on the list for selling fake AW batteries - since AW knows his own distributors that's at least one battery line I wouldn't be getting there.

    Like ~2/3 of everything on the site, that mod is out of stock.

    @H4X0R : you don't have to buy another Tesla 2, and I don't recommend it. There are plenty of simple, regulated, more modern mods on the market now, (e.g. Egrip 2, Cuboid Mini, Coolfire 4 TC100, etc), that would be a better investment of your money. These mods are both simple to use and have full temperature control features. They all use internal batteries.

    Recharging lithium ion batteries separately is safe, (assuming everything's in good condition), and if/when you're no longer anxious about it, your options open up even further.

    ETA: I've only ordered a couple small items from Gearbest, but I had no problems. A Kepler heatsink and a pair of ceramic tweezers for $5 total shipped was a decent deal. The package arrived ~20 days after I ordered it.

    I have placed many orders with GB and never an issue. Just placed one today during their Dragonboat sale :)

    They do have some products in their US warehouse.

    ONLY reason I'm considering it is because I don't yet fully understand how other mods with removable batteries work just yet, I know the calculation to find the amp draw on each battery, but can't seem to figure out where the resistance of the coil comes into play. I'm just used to unregulated where the only thing you have to worry about is the resistance of the coil, I need to brush up more on them before going for a regulated mod. I was considering the RX200 honestly, but like I said, I need to do some more reading. Thanks all for your replies and it does help more than you know!

    Also, side note here, I heard someone say that an elevated 510 connector can cause a hard short on a mod. The Tesla Two first gen has an elevated 510 connector, where it sits just a BIT off the mod, is this an issue? Or am I mistaken? Correct me if I'm wrong, that's my goal here lol I bring this up because they got rid of the gap eventually in the newer versions of the mod, and from what I heard, ordering from fasttech or gearbest, it's all chance which one you get. Is that a safety issue at all?
