    Yeah that article tells it like it is. Be careful with those unwrapped batteries though brother. They can short very easily and can be very dangerous exposed/unwrapped. Enjoy your tests.

    Guys it's going to be like Xmass, right when I get them I'm going to UNWRAP them I'll shoot a pic and let you know what piece of crap I ended up buying. After all I gave you guys so much bullshit about it I got to give you a good laugh back right? It's the only right thing to do.
    So guess what I found today on Davinci's site. Don't know if I've just been missing it in all the posts or if they just posted it lately but here it is:

    So after reading this how many of us are using the wrong battery?

    I recently purchased a pair of Samsung 30Q's 3000mAH 15amps, I have gotten 3 10min sessions per charge and the unit maintains warm but not hot to the touch.

    The only thing that spec doesn't state is the Amps, now I know that by looking at my most recent IQ, that by the way just went to the Post Office today, is 10 Amps. And that is the original battery that came with the unit. So this is going to be my 5th IQ, do I get a prize? Has anyone of this board reached the magic 5 number? Maybe I should defect to the Grasshopper guys, and see how they are doing.

    I'm still on my first IQ, first set of batteries and happy as a lark. Nobody has commented on my battery posts but they are, in fact, 3500 mAh 10 amps.

    I will soon be at #4 , but this will be the first unit that my technique didn't break. I killed the first three IQs by using glass shards in my mix that got packed through the oven wall (. Per DaVinci autopsy) This IQ has energy management issues requiring frequent battery swaps leading to a hyper depressed positive battery terminal, and a difficult to use sealing latch. I have successfully inserted a tool to reshape the positive brass terminal per @Davinci_vaporizer , but that fix is failing again and the energy management problems are a pain. I just hate not having my IQ again during an RMA. On the bright side, CS is hitting on all eight! I'll stick with the IQ for now, I'm still in love with it.

    Yeah that's the problem no specs since it's meant to fit e cigs or whatever. It really looks like it's about the diameter of a female 10mm which would fit perfect who knows though. If a further extension to put the two together would be needed it would be way less cool and practical. How do we know if it will fit though!

    You know if mine wasn't in for a RMA I could see myself pulling the trigger on it.
    So back to the Battery discussion. Anyone want to buy any batteries? LOL
    Since I have a drawer full that none of them are going to be fully compatible with with my IQ when I get it back. Oh wait a minute, that's what I can spend money on, new real batteries.

    When using the davinci external dual battery charger with stock batteries do the red lights turn green when they are fully charged i currently don't have the wall adaptor and i'm not sure if i can use an iPhone square so used my laptop it's been four hours with 2 batteries charging the lights are still red i took both batteries out and popped them in the iq to charge and they both say they are full. I'm a bit confused info from someone with the Davinci brand external charger would be greatly appreciated.

    Wait I thought it was better to use a different battery such as LG HG2... Why are people acting like they need to throw batteries away if it is not 3500mah LOL

    @ToxicVape How hot does your unit get using a 20amp battery?

    @Nostalgia1 500 mAH is not a big deal, is more the amperage of the battery. I've been using a 15 amp battery for a week and the IQ has ran much cooler with more sessions per charge.

    Ok boys didn't mean to start a revolution! Got to say though I have a # of batteries that have performed, 2 of them you can't even tell what the heck they are. Still waiting for my re-wraps. Ordered 4 of Davinci's recommended ones from IMR last night. Ya I know what spend the money. This will just be my 5th unit, am I fucking tired. I want no more damn excuses. I want to get my unit, working and be happy, to much to ask?

    Not sure, BCVapor is taking their sweet time shipping my order. One business day for order to ship is a lie. I ordered on Wednesday and no shipping email still... I will test when I get it.

    It's a Davinci corporate excuse now, from now on any power issues we have that will be the first thing they fall back on is "what battery are you using?"

    Went with standard shipping, must be by damn horseback, still haven't received, my double special re-wraps yet.
    Exactly just about the same reason were trying to find everything else somewhere else, cheaper.
