IrishVapers have the Lavatube in stock now so it looks as though you may have yours tomorrow, certainly Thursday at the latest...
right just checked everything. everything perfect except they gave me vanilla flavouring instead of vanilla 10ml 11mg. not a problem. god.. so many juices
i want to try them all right now
You'll be blowing bacon smoke rings with your Lavatube over Christmas. My Health Cabin order arrived today, too. 10 packs of CE3's, a few bottles of juice and various odds and ends. There was also a silk purse in the package...maybe that was the "personal gift" worth $20 that was declared on the customs form.
haha yeah forgot the little purse
trying to find a use for it atm
maybe store some of the surplus bottles of juice
Might do as a Christmas pressie at the last minute for someone you forgot
actually i think that's exactly what ill do with it
lavatube shipped \o/
tomorrow, tomorrow.. I love you tomorrow.. you're only a day away!
Busy day for you Sir DCC
Let us know how ya get on with your Lavatube not that i need to ask
er.... there is a chance that Lava dropping voltage under load more dramatically than Provari does...
Could u run simple test? Get a same battery for provari and lava , set same voltage on both and check this voltage with the meter under load ?
anyone noticed the talk about the lavatube batteries stateside?
apparently people buying from volcano ecig are being given li-on batteries instead of li-mn? i think volcanos supplier said they were a certain battery (aw branded limn batts) and then people who received them figured out they actually weren't.
i know absolutely nothing about batteries but the words explosion and time-bomb are being thrown around.
right, after reading the thread on the volcano forums
apparently the batteries volcano were selling were unprotected lithium ion batteries, they are offering full refunds to any of their customers and are sourcing the batteries they had intended them to be
so.. I dunno
might just buy some batteries online to be safe
i doubt the lavatube will explode on me until they get here. I hope not anyway, but if they do.. chicks dig scars.
apparently the lavatube has circuits in it to prevent over discharge.. so i guess using a good quality charger will prevent overcharging, which seems to be the main issues with unprotected lion batteries
still.. not a good thing to be using if th elavatube circuits or your charger malfunction.
either way, immediate panic gone I guess just be prudent to get some proper imr batteries if you weren't lucky enough to get them with your order.
actually I dont even have a clue if this is an issue for european customers.
The AW's that came with the American Lavatube were flat tops and AW don't make flat tops. Hopefully the batteries we're getting will have the nipple on them.
The Lavatube is supposed to drop to 5.75 when set to 6 volts and loaded - voltage tests in this review;
I can live with a difference of .25 especially when it comes to vaping at 6 volts - most eliquids taste like burning tyres at this voltage anyway.
ah yeah, that'd be one easy way to find out alright
mine is on the way to me now anyway, so i'll know in a couple of hours and will shout here
read last night it can take 5-6 hours to charge 1600mah batteries! my god the wait will kill me
ok, lavatube just arrived
first impressions.. omg.. love
secondly the batteries are flat tops, so it looks like they're not genuine AW after all
I emailed irishvapers earlier this morning to let them know about the possibility, I'll fire off another email now to confirm
it seems to be safe enough if you're careful with them. I've been reading some things about the trustfire chargers overcharging ever so slightly, which can be tricky with unprotected lion batteries. so just dont leave it charging over night, and check it regularly with a meter or in your lavatube (click the red button seven times and it will show the current level of the battery)
I've been using 18650 flat tops for ages now and charging them with a Trustfire and never had a problem. Still, I always charge them when I'm in the house just in case and never overnight. Used them in Lavatube too, no problems. Any battery I have with a nipple won't fit the LT and the flat tops won't work in a Provari unless you use a magnetic spacer which I think isn't recommended...anyone know more on this?
By the way, if you press the red button on the LT 7 times you can check your battery voltage.
aye, its probably safe if you use them properly
i just dont trust myself not to blow something up so I ordered 2 of these
theyre the batteries that were supposed to come with the kit and according to the volcano people they do fit in the LT. shipping was only 4 sterling or something and there's an 8% off coupon "CPF" if anyone else is as much of a 'fraidy cat as me.
could even be cheaper places online, but they ship same day and I wanted them asap.
