A question that gets asked a lot in the ecig world is “How long will my batt last?” In some ways, this question is easy to answer, but impossible in others. Here are the key factors of what determines how long a battery will last.

Vapor King Manual Passthrough

V4L’s Newest Mods

This is a guest post written by Keyzygirl from Key West, Florida. Laid back and vaping in paradise.

Everyone who knows me knows that I have been a Vapor4Life fan for a few years now and I love that they are coming out with new and exciting things for us to try. It’s great to be able to try new things like fat batts and mods from a company you already use and trust. It’s scary when you have to venture into unfamiliar territory to try something new. Now V4L has it all.

Passthroughs and Wall Adapters

This is a guest post written by Morandir835, a regular on V4L’s sub forum on ECF, and an e-cig enthusiast.

Manual PT

One e-cig piece I haven’t explained yet is the passthrough, known by many as a “PT.” It’s not really a battery, but can be a life saver when driving or when all of your batts are charging. It comes in both auto and manual versions, but requires an external power source to run, namely a USB port. Unlike batteries that start at 4.1 volts depending on the model, PTs run at 5 volts constantly. That is as long as they are hooked up to a proper power source. This is where the wall and car adapters come into play.

Chargers and The Affects on Batteries

This is a guest post written by Morandir835, a regular on V4L’s sub forum on ECF, and an e-cig enthusiast.

V4L offers three types of chargers: Vapor King Wall Charger, Vapor King USB Charger, and Vapor King Slim Wall Charger.

Wall Charger

The VK Wall Charger is V4L’s first version. It plugs into any wall outlet. It’s the most bulky of chargers, but is the only one that doesn’t pose compatibility issues. They charge batteries to about 4.25 volts ‘off load’. They also have the highest average charge times of all the V4L chargers. I have tested all 3 lengths using the wall charger. The average charge times are as follows: Shorties – 82 minutes, Regulars – 128 minutes, and Xls – 176 minutes.
