    Omg! I don't know whether I vape too much, well actually I do. I vape constantly. But my 510 battery doesnt even last 2 hours. I have to charge it constantly and then use the automatic one with cartridges and no liquid until it charges, ew! I remember when I bought my first e-cig "Gamucci" it usually lasted half a day at least, but then again, it was so crap and I was still smoking in between and wasn't vaping as much. Its just so annoying! When I ordered 510 it came with an automatic and manual batteries. I don't get why I didn't get 2 manuals, maybe because I bought it for a bit cheaper than everywhere else. I heard about 510 crap battery life, but I didn't think it'd be a problem until now. I think I will need to invest into ego or riva soon, but I don't want to spend any more money on a new kit. I think I spent over £100 on e-cigs so far... Can anyone recommend the best pv I can get? With a good throat hit and vapour and a long lasting battery? Also, I heard about low resistance atomizers and tanks, what are they? Which kit is the best currently that I won't need to replace anytime soon? Also, what is the best UK supplier to buy a genuine and good kit from?

    Thanks a lot.

    lol there's actually a sticky on this :) it's pretty outdated though... could always try the riva 510 though it's a little bigger but not as much as you would think from the pics, about as wide as a dime and shorter then a regular cig look alike battery :) low resistance means you'll just get a hotter vape more or less. on the off chance you have any car stereo experience think of it like ohms on subs and how you wire them to an amp...... lower resistance stuff isn't recomended for batteries under 650 mah because it could damage the battery, meaning you would need a riva or ego or a mod to use one

    I suggest you buy an Ego style mod or even a boxmod or tube mod..If your a heavy vaper the ego style will usually carry you through the day but if you are an ulta vaper.....Well you need MORE POWER in the form of some major Mah...that means a mod w at least 1800-2600Mah which is an 18500 or 18650 batteries...

    Good luck...and Vape on:vapor:

    When I was using only my 510 kit, the batteries would only last 2-3 hours. It sucked having to charge batteries over and over. I bought an eGo kit and now the batteries last all day. If I were you I would order a Riva 510 or an eGo of some sort.

    um... origonality? riva is an ego clone.. riva has improved and become 3.7v :) although allot of people say ego is 3.7v im pretty sure it's lower.. so riva is superior!!! haha :D it's all the same really.. you can buy the tank atty's and cart's if you want later so order whichever you choose. i'd stick with the regular riva 510 and order some 510-t tank carts and atty's because i've heard less problems from them...

    top right of the screen it says settings.. then scroll down a little and on the left it should say edit signature, might take an hour or so for the server to catch up like it does to let you out of the new members forum :p

    Im using an ego style T-Rex 1100mah from Liberty-Flights. I get over 24 hours on a charge with this battery and love the green lite ring. I got tired of using the kr808 batteries, charging every 2-4 hours got very inconvenient.

    I had the same problem. If the Ego doesn't work out for you, I ordered a PigCig from Lecig. com. The battery lasts for a couple of days, and vapes way harder than my little Bloog batteries.

    Im in too much of a hurry this moring to read all the post except the OP. In short..get a mod. Which is up to you. Tube or box bottomfeeder so long as it has at least a 18650 batt.
