    Pila is a bit expensive, I like the xtar wp2 (jam has one too) it has fast and regular charge modes and you can use it as an emergency phone charger (it has a USB port that it can power from a battery without being plugged into the wall)

    I bought one a few days ago. AltSmoke has them on sale here for $17.99.
    The reviews I read were all good.

    EDIT
    i remember why i didnt buy the xtar... because i found this.

    http://www.jetbeamusa.com/i4-charger-v2/

    but i never got that one either. considering it again. sounds great and gets good reviews. it shows charge status while it charges.

    With the kind of large batteries the cera takes, I think that sp2 is going to kick ass. Mainly because it has a 2 amp (2000ma) charge mode, that should charge the cera batteries from flat in under two hours!(about one and a half hours for a 3000mah battery)

    The wp2 has a 1 amp maximum (1000ma) and charges will take twice as long as the 2 amp mod on the sp2. (about 3 hours for a 3000mah battery from dead flat)

    I liked the i4 too, but then I found out the maximum current is only 0.75 amp (750ma) so it will take four hours to charge a flat 3000mah battery...

    This discussion seems somehow familiar. :D

    The Pila charger has maximum 600mA charge, so the charging times might be five hours or more with high capacity batteries.

    That is why we got the:

    Xtar SP2

    The price, service and free shipping from Orbtronic were great.

    Best,

    Hey I asked ThermoVape a couple questions and got this response yesterday from Travis:

    I can see that you ordered a single 2900mAh battery with your Cera preorder. We will include 2, 2250mAh IMR batteries when your order is ready to ship, and if that is unsatisfactory, we can exchange those 2 batteries for a single 2900mAh battery when they become available. Additionally, we would be happy to upgrade your order to include an Illuminated Latching Switch, however, that part is also delayed at this time. We will be shipping Ceras with the available switches on hand, and exchange the upgraded switches once they are in stock. Please let us know if you have any further questions. We appreciate your patience and support.

    Thought some of you would find this interesting...

    Hmm, I didn't order a switch, but does that mean the people who did will receive their Ceras then have to send them back for a period of time to have them replaced by TET?

    Maybe a good time to get some engraving...? If that's around by that time. Make lemonade out of 2 dead birds... If you can follow that.

    Damn, seems like they had quite a bit of issues getting these 1st orders out. Like things falling through, no pun intended.

    Hope things continue to work out! I'd really like to see that confirmation email this week!

    If I understand previous remarks from Thermovape, people will only have to send in the switch not the whole unit.
    I could be wrong, and I have in the past, but that is my understanding. Nothing inside has to be changed for the lighted switch to be installed, so sending the whole unit instead of just the switch would only add to the shipping costs for everyone.

    However if personalized engraving is what you desire they did say it was completely doable, and they have an outside source to make it happen at a reasonable price. It would be the same type of engraving that is on the bottom, LV marking for the previous line. You could make up some seriously awesome personalized logos or pictures to "pimp" your Cera out!

    Damn..... that would seriously suck for international orders if thats the case.

    Wonder how long the delay will be for the lighted switch.. maybe I'll wait it out OR just cancel the it all together (which would make me an unhappy camper).

    @smokum, maybe you can tell them to move your order down the list and wait till they have it the way you want it. Personally if I pre-ordered I would have held up my order till all the parts I wanted were in.

    Wow this sucks I ordered a extra battery which I canceled because of the 2900 thing and I ordered a lighted switch so I just can't win the preorder date went right out the window parts and stock cera assembled? Really so now I have to wait for my light switches, 2250 batteries, sleeves, catastohic weather, what else could delay this whole preorder of the Cera.
    Man this whole thing was exciting atone time now its becoming down right frustrating I know I ordered early like on nov 19,2012 so I know I'm one of the first 500 that would be preordered and shipped for this exclusive preorder of the Cera but I guess ill be last lol international order customs ect.
    This is actually very depressing news about the switches it would be nice to be informed about this since I have actually ordered a lighted switch with my order. Wow
    That's not cool at all I would expect to be contacted regarding this delay if I never read it hear I'd just be waiting thinking there just slow, anyway I'm gonna call then Tuesday i guess this really bugs me it shouldn't but it just does.

    Ya, others wish so they can jump up the ladder :p I see I messed up my sentence there, which changes the whole meaning of what I was saying which should have said " ... maybe I'll wait it out OR just cancel the lit switch all together". :nod:

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I see. I thought you were going to cancel the cera. So now you have to decide how patient you are. If you are you will get the 2900 batts, the switch and a skin if you want. Woooooooohooooooooooo in my book.

    Thought I saw in other TET thread that team would be taking time off for holiday until Thursday. Don't have link handy, but I'd imagine an update will come around then.

    Hey Guys
    So what's the deal with the lit switch, why do I have to send it in? What the hell Im I paying for?
    I don't see anywhere when ordering that I have to return old switch, thats stupid! So if I get a Cera now and 6 months from now want to get lit switch, TV is going to make me send in my unit to get new switch or even just sending the switch alone, Cera won't work without it! I wanted both types of switches that's why I ordered it anyway, and what would TV do with an old switch anyway? So IMO for $25 we should get to keep the old switch also!
    And the batteries what is this BS? Order two @ $50 and we will send you 3 $10 batts? Why don't they just give us batts to use until they get their shit together and send out the 2900's! Sounds like a BS looks like BS must be BS!
    Just my :2c:
    Kevin
