    Damn, hope we see some $11 batteries over here in the states!

    Sorry for being dumb but I'm not sure if you're saying these are the same as Arizer uses and sells or they work just as well?

    hi guys,


    this thread is great. have been reading for a long time.
    now that I ordered some of the stock batteries I found this graph - a kinda comparison
    BAK stocks and some Panasonics (different ones IIRC)

    its in german... but i maybe CentiZen and/or OF can understand the tech specs? otherwise I'd help where I can:

    EDIT: heres the google translated one:
    http://translate.google.com/transla...w.dampfakkus.de/akkutest.php?id=112&sandbox=1

    Does this state that those one are more than "ok"?
    I'm not that much of a tech-guy.. :(

    I also use IMR batteries for my e-cig mods. I was wondering if the Air OEM battery is a flat top or a nipple top... And if either would work?

    11$ aint bad for a 2100mah IMR 18650 especially if you promise to use this to keep yer warranty, don't think they could tell if you used a diff brand....?

    ^they are flat.

    Centizen, ordered three batts to the UK on Sunday and although I have an email from PayPal to say the money has been taken I haven't had a confirmation email or any thing and you haven't replied to my email through the website. What should I do?

    Hi Kingscar, I'm really sorry for the issues in getting back to you. I have a feeling all of the emails from my vapepower domain are being blocked by a spam filter and not getting to you, because I did try to reply to your email. I didn't realize that you had reached out to me here on the forum until you PM'd me earlier today.

    I do my best to keep FC monitored, but I've been spending a huge amount of time over the past week officially registering VapePower as a business with the Canadian government. It's been a huge headache but it will mean that I can offer more competitive shipping rates and operate in Canadian dollars. No excuse, but I want you to know I have not been trying to ignore you!

    I'm going to send you a more detailed reply to your PM shortly, once I have had a chance to review the details surrounding your order. I am very sorry for not getting back to you until now!

    Seems there are a lot of people with these batteries and the NiteCore charger. How many sessions can typically be had from a charge via the Air versus a charge via the NiteCore?

    The difference would ultimately end up being less than half a single session - so not much, but it's not negligible either. Up to you whether you think that's worth it.

    Just want to be sure I understand. No charger is required. I could put this battery in the Air, charge to solid green and be good to go (forgoing a potential 10% run time shortage over using a standalone charger), correct?

    Once charged, If this battery (or the stock) sits unused for a month, what type of drain would you expect?

    CentiZen, thanks for your continued contributions!

    Yes there is a charger built in to your air - an external charger is simply a convenience. These batteries self drain would be more appropriate to measure in years, six months would only see a negligible amount of self drain.

    @CentiZen weird my arizer air charges to the same voltage as my efast external charger. Measured as 4.20V on both the charger as well as a fluke multimeter. I have two batteries, basically same voltage for both. Perhaps arizer made a change?

    It's certainly possible, especially since my unit was one of the first units released. I'd have to get a more recent one to know for sure.

    I think the package has arrived (just got a note from the post office saying they want $20 customs fee). This is the first time I have ordered something online and had a fee for it and I guess this is a warning to others in the UK, if you think you are saving by ordering from this guy I would say it's probably better to get it elsewhere tbh...

    CentiZen, have you been able to work anything out for shipping rates?

    We've just finished up registering VapePower as a business with the Canadian government and are working with Canada Post to try to set up a shipping agreement that would let us take advantage of lower shipping prices. At the same time, I'm working on the back end of the site to try to integrate shipping services and multiple currency support.

    @kingscar, sorry to hear about your extra fees - this is the first I've heard from any of my UK customers of an extra fee. If there was any more information given to you about what the fees are or why they were levied, I'd really appreciate it if you could forward that over to me so I can look into it. I'll also reimburse you for the extra costs - I'll reach out to you via PM to get it taken care of.

    Hey Centizen
    I contacted you through PM on FC and via vapepower.ca. .. I would like to purchase 12 batteries but would like to pay CAD and not USD as we are both based in Canada, makes no sense to have to pay the exchange rate.
    Still haven't heard back... need these quick, serious buyer.. please let me know asap.
    thanks

    I ordered 12 batteries from Centizen for my week long canoe camping trips (3 planned this summer). There was an issue in processing that slightly delayed my order but Centizen fairly compensated me for the delay. The batteries work great, even seem to last slightly longer than the originals (no interruption on the last stem basically) Overall good product and great service!
    I highly recommend it.
    Thanks Centizen!

    Sounds like some well planned trips! Where are you heading, Saguenay River?

    What are you using to keep everything dry and tidy?

    I ordered some USB charging cables, I think I'll go with a massive battery pack for recharging in the wild.

    2 trips in La Verendrye, northern QC, 1 in Algonquin Park, northern ON... Not counting weekend trips.

    Still working on that but most likely a small 10-15 litre dry bag for ease of mind down rapids... And my gear in ecig zip pouches (x2) ... they're sturdy enough.

    I was gonna do that at first, but I don't want the hassle of charging on the go.. Like this I just pop in a new batt, store the spent one and keep going ... Also, with replacement batts, you can customize the quantity of batteries you take per trip. High capacity external batteries are large and cumbersome IMO.

    I'm still working on how I will be able to make it fully hands free while on the go in the canoe ... Probably with silicone tubing and an EQ mouth piece ...

    Cheers

    Hi , I got an email saying my order is completed, but I have not received anything. I also paid extra for tracking and have not been giving a tracking number.
    I emailed you through vapepower.ca a week ago, but I have not gotten a response.
    I have also sent you a pm.
    Please reply soon or unfortunately I am going to cancel my order.

    Thanks

    Hi there Blackimapllass, I am extremely sorry for not getting back to your email. I've spent the last six days in and out of the hospital and unable to work, and I feel terrible for not being able to get your order taken care of quickly.

    I am going to reply directly to your PM so we can work something out, but anyone else who has not heard from me yet; please know that I am only just getting back recovered and I will get back to you. Sorry everyone!
