I vape about twice that much...about 3.5-4ml a day.
I'm going to order the 25cm charger & see how that goes - someone said something about it having a special chip (?). Maybe, it might charge faster, too.
I'd love to see the day I can get at least 2 days out of a trustworthy battery.

Btw...my 'black eyed' battery has 4 notches.

After overcoming a problem at the beginning, this battery is still working great. Charge lasting 1 day for me.

lol then they're all different, I'll tell you how these 4 i ordered looks like when they arrive.

Btw that seems just right then, about the duration of the battery. I have a friend that vape as much as you do and he has to use a mech mod and anyway he recharges it everyday.

Also I think the mAh of the various batteries here are not always right. Not FT's fault, though, as I'm sure that's what the factory tells them, but I had different results with same mAh but different batteries, even with 3x more duration between them.

And about recharge speed if you find a charger that charges faster then I guess it's safer to stop using it, as it's going to do bad things with the battery. First there's a risk of explosion, and second the faster the battery is charged, the less it lasts before depleted and you shorten its life too.

6 hours to recharge this one is like a miracle imo, because a friend of mine has a 900 mAh ego battery and he needs the same amount of time to recharge them, and my 650mAh ego battery takes about 3 hours but only lasts about 10 hours (with terrible performances I might add).

Just have 2 or 3 of them around fully charged and recharge the depleted one while you use the other and you'll be fine, that's why I bought 2 more for me :)

I have 2 of these. I was using the chargers that I received in various "kits" and they would TAKE FOREVER TO CHARGE! 7-9hrs from dead. I bought the separate ego charger 0190800 and it cut the charging time in half, usually 4.5hrs from dead. I was thrilled so I bought another and had the same results. The chargers that I was using before had different markings in the back but still stated 5v/420mah charge rate. All my egos were effected by the crappy kit chargers (3 different ones). All my ego batteries (2 1300- 1 900 lcd and 2 650) charging times have been sliced in half.

i vape about 3-4ml a day, and when i just got this battery it lasted me a good three days, but then just went down from there.

FT offered me a refund or a replacement. i accepted the replacement.

when i get it ill let you guys know how it is.

In my experience almost all of these egos are crap,quality is hit or miss,cheap generic batteries are used when taken apart.The ego twists seem to be a little better quality.

Yeah I have a 650mah ego-v vv passthrough and it's great. It charges in like an hour and lasts over 1 day, plus you get the same output from first to last puff, but the 1300mah variant is quite long and not really handy to take around, so I bought one of these for that reason.
It's true that with these cheap batteries it's a hit or miss though.

I also have a 900mah pass through that I got from V.S. (the shop that dominates here where I live), and it's fabulous battery - though, a bit expensive. The button light changes colors as it gets depleted - doesn't konk out/leave you hanging from one second to the next. It lets you know when it turns red one should think about re-charging (but it doesn't just stop). Anyway, it's been almost a yr. and this VS battery is still going strong. I might keep buying batteries there.
FL is actually pretty new in the vaping world - we used to smoke everywhere and now it's a smoke-free state. Anyhow, I tried FT for little extras and liquids (like bigger sizes) that I can't find locally...and in the process saw batteries and thought I'd give 'em a try.

Hi,
Looks interesting - something I'd probably like.
Though, I'm afraid to purchase it - after my last wired battery episode that shorted & lasted only 3 wks.
thanks
