    Todsho, where in Ohio are you? I'm in the Cleveland area. I'd love to get a vapor gathering going. Maybe get Vaporbomb in on the action too. They're in the Akron area.

    I have not had a battery die since they came out with the sealed ones. I was flooding the other ones by over dripping.

    Oh...sorry, Tod, but these dumb Leo batteries just won't die! I'd be happy to give you a holler in a few months, (provided they FINALLY die!)
    if you'd like!

    I just had one die today. You can hear me rant in a new thread I just posted. After I make sure tomorrow that it cannot be replaced and I don't need to send it back, I can give it to you.

    I just noticed this was posted a while ago. Do you still want batteries?

    My first Leo battery lasted a year. Every single one of them since has lasted 3 months TOPS. I just lost another one this morning, which was ordered less than 6 weeks ago!!!!! I'm VERY NOT HAPPY with the new batteries that you can turn on and off....I believe it's the switch and it SUCKS:mad:

    An update: There were a number of "bad batches" of Leo batteries, but thanks to the work of people like Michelle at ecigarsenal.com, the problem seems to have been addressed....she has been in contact with the manufacturer(s) in China, and they were alerted to the faulty switches, not only by her but by others, probably vapingzone, as well, anyway, my last few batteries (both the solid blue leds and the on/off function bats) have worked quite well. Not expecting the original year's duration anymore but would be delighted with a three to six month life....will keep you posted.

    (looks questioningly at her Leo...) I've had this one since mid-February (Got it from Michele at ECA) and while it's starting to last 6-7 hours instead of 8-10 on a charge, it's still working nicely! My other two (also from ECArsenal) are only one month younger than this one and they're still lasting 8-10 hours with absolutely no performance problems...I think you're gonna be fine! Mistakes happen..:blink:

    I wish it were true, but the replacements I ordered only lasted July 1 or thereabouts to today, August 20. One was the old steady blue type and one the on/off switch type. The on/off type started blinking wildly for no reason, and when I charged it until the light went off, it was very hot to the touch. The steady blue just stopped charging at all, though I can still use it occasionally as a pass through. They both went "out" within a few days of each other. I am totally unimpressed. I ordered another two Boge Leo batts today and I will let you all know how long the next batch lasts. If it is less than 3 months again, it could be:

    (a) the batteries are faulty;
    (b) my method of recharging is faulty (either through a car charger or through a laptop usb) in which case I should get an outlet charger?

    But I'm so darned tired of the problem I'm tempted to change brands. Will keep you posted.
