    You lost me here, Bro. No 'banana clip' on the battery, that's a feature on the new PA.....

    And there are no banana clips anyway, there are banana plugs.....clips are different than plugs, an unimportant but real detail. But the new batteries are a solid cylinder like all the rest, I would expect them to fit the ring like all others (exact size not withstanding). The ring still doesn't change size (what the banan plug design is addressing.

    I can't consider this a fault with the new battery.

    Sorry, yes I meant from the banana plug. I woke up in a pharm-induced haze (damn pills) and felt nauseous, so I jumped on the chance to get some vapor. Sorry if I didn't make sense. I mean before, the batteries fit snugly. Now after using the new pa almost exclusively I find the battery fit to be lacking. Is this the first case of this issue popping up on fc? I can't think of much else that cod have caused it, I only used batteries and the new pa on this box.

    I got my MFLB on Friday and love, love, LOVE it! I thought it was broken for the first hour because I'm kind of an idiot and kept trying to stick the battery in the wrong way, but once I got over that hurdle, it was great! My search for a truly portable vape is now over...at least until the Ascent comes out ;)

    My only complaint is that, within about 5 seconds, I lost the squishy foam thingy that keeps the battery from staying in contact when not in use. They should start providing one or two with each battery set purchased.

    ...and yikes, maybe I'll wait to get the PA until this looseness issue is figured out :\

    Yuo seem to be on to something. I've been using the banana plug PA for a while,
    and just checked the tightness of my batts. To my slight unease, they were so loose
    that they slid out. I can still make contact, but I hadn't realized the new plug was
    reaming me out!

    If you want to PM me your address I can ship you an extra foam ring I have! Hell, could even do it in a few hours when I go out :)

    Sigh, still can't get a response from MF CS about my faulty power adapter. Think it's been about a month with one e-mail a week going out. I sure get the automatic reply confirming my ticket submission just fine but no other correspondence.

    I'll give you odds it's been replaced under warranty....... I wonder if it still has it's serial number?

    If not, it should be.....looks diseased to me....

    Something just came to mind.. the PA this time around will also be sold to/by distributers. Which means even though MFLB prices the PA at $80... it may be cheaper depending on the vendor, not to mention the potential for using coupon codes. Cause right now, the MFLB site definitely prices the box itself much higher than you can get at many online retailers.

    Screen tears are covered under warranty correct?

    Unless they are deliberate, yes.

    I was cleaning the screen and it was unusually flexible and I noticed a small tear by the rod.

    Hey guys, I need to replace my batteries and I was wondering if the new batteries magic flight released are better than the powerex ones

    thanks

    I think they are, and I've used both. The logo batteries are strong, and they don't seem to drain as fast.

    You use a MH-C9000 right? Do you just use the default rates to charge the logo batts? I got my C9000 in June and have been using the defaults to charge the batteries once they're depleted. I haven't done a refresh or analysis on them. One batt seems to handle two trenches and then it's just about done.

    Yes, I've had my C-9000 for a few years now. I do use the default rate to charge all my batteries, and have never had a problem.

    Update:

    I received a reply 2 business days after submitting my warranty claim. After I respond with pictures, to their email, I will update everyone on how long it takes from there. So far, they are holding to their high standards of customer service.
