    • Nice little battery, bought it on clearance for a back up!
      Review by Mike on 1/28/2018
      I've been alternating back and forth between 2 Titan batteries I got from a couple of Titan starter kits I purchased back in August.
      Here it is almost February and those two Titans take a licking and keep on ticking! Ones on the charger all the time while the other is locked and loaded into my V2 Smile-o-Miser. When the hit falls off, I switch them up, charging the depleted titan and using the freshly charged one.
      So, I know, I know, why am I rambling on about Titans when I'm supposed to be rambling on about the Vapor King Battery!
      OK, so I bought the Vapor King Battery as just a precautionary backup to my 2 titan batteries, just in case, one or both kicked the bucket!
      I did try the Vapor King Battery just to insure it was good to go, and it is! Just like the titan batteries, unfortunately they don't offer it in the cigar color which I prefer and have on my titans. Anyway seems to be a good battery choice, colors are a little glitzy for me personally but it'll serve well as my back-up battery when and if I need it!
    • My first e-cig
      Review by Amy on 4/22/2018
      Vapor King e Cig was my first e Cig and allowed me to quit smoking. Once I found the exact flavor and level, which didn't take long, was wishing I would have tried e Cigs a lot sooner. Smoke-free since 2009.
    • The battery that allowed me to quit smoking
      Review by Elliot on 2/18/2018
      I'll never forget that these magical little batteries were what first enabled me to easily leave tobacco in the rear view mirror -- after 15 years of smoking! Thank you to everyone at v4L.
    • I like these
      Review by De on 2/18/2018
      I ordered a couple of these. A couple I had issues with. But they replaced them with no problem. They make me feel like I'm smoking a cigarette. They last awhile before you have to charge them.
    • Very good batteries
      Review by Pamela on 1/28/2018
      I first started using these batteries a few years ago. They are great batteries but I now use the Titan as I think their life is a little longer. Plus, I like the matte exterior better than the smooth shiny exterior of the King.
    • First v4l battery
      Review by heidi on 1/5/2018
      This battery is great. It was my very first when I began vaping. I have since graduated to the vapor titan. Definitely recommend, for the quality, & price.
    • Great entry level e cig
      Review by Tom on 11/1/2017
      I started with this e cig back in 2011 and quit smoking as a result. This is good for people looking to quit smoking but under powered for people that want to continue vaping.
    • nice batts for the price!
      Review by MC on 8/24/2017
      Great standard KR-808 batts are super for vets or newbies - great customer service and very fast shipping too!
    • Great starter Ecig!
      Review by MC on 8/24/2017
      I have been using this type for years, even though I know it is a starter model. It is so superb - and super great customer service and fast shipping too!
    • Great Product for the coupon price!
      Review by MC on 8/24/2017
      Great product for the coupon price. Nice vape - great mini batts.
    • Our favorite battery!
      Review by Beth on 8/24/2017
      Reasonably priced and they last a long time!
    • Great!
      Review by Beth on 8/6/2017
      We have used a variety of batteries but these are the ones we order and use the most. Last a long time!
    • Easy to use
      Review by kevin on 7/10/2017
      I like taking these on vacation when flying easy to no mess.
    • My First Love
      Review by Dan on 8/2/2016
      This was my very first battery that I bought from V4L. I've been using bigger batteries and box mods for about 5 years but my old Vapor King still works!
    • My favorite!
      Review by Angie on 7/30/2016
      These are my favorite batteries. I purchase the XL to increase vaping time, but they're lightweight, durable and a great price!
    • Reliable
      Review by Karyn on 7/30/2016
      I have a few of these for when I don't want to use my bling diamond tips. The color selection is perfect and I like the automatic version for tucking in my pocket when heading outdoors without a purse. I have found them to be super reliable and they last an acceptable amount of time. Great grab and go battery!
    • Another great transition
      Review by matthew on 7/29/2016
      Small enough to fit in your pocket and powerful enough to make you forget about the real thing. You cant go wrong. Comes in many colors too
    • The Perfect Battery for Vaping
      Review by Cory Besse on 4/28/2016
      I have both the Manuel and Automatic batteries and as great as the Manuel version is this is by far my favorite. Coming off of smoking analogs this has a much more natural feel to it. It's also much easier to use especially being that I drive a stick transmission truck, so no need to push a button every time I take a drag. I'm also an avid video gamer at nights and again much easier to just hold it in my mouth while playing and all I have to do is breath in. The Vapor production paired up with the Wow juices along with the premium cartridges are out of this world. I could not imagine ever needing anything else. Great vapor, awesome looks, decent battery time....what's not to like.:)
    • My copper auto is nifty
      Review by Tumbleghost on 4/5/2016
      Works great! I keep mine charged in a portable charging case for plenty of oomph. Copper color with blue LED is distinctive. Purchased from a few companies, but this company consistently ships FAST and have had a quick turnaround on customer service questions as well.
    • Perfection!
      Review by Pawpaw on 4/5/2016
      Don't let the small size fool you. These batteries produce big clouds of vapor! I never thought I'd want or need a short battery, but these are quickly becoming my favorites. They are so small & light, it makes them easy to carry and perfect for "stealth vaping". The whole thing will hide in your hand.
    • Vapor King Manual Battery
      Review by Kim Salamone on 4/4/2016
      I love the manual battery, even more so than the automatic. I feel its easier to get more vapor!
      Review by Stephanie Thompson on 3/29/2016
      I purchased the short battery automatic and short battery manual, all in pink, of course!!!! The automatics have good vape, are gorgeous, and batteries last longer than the other companies I have tried. NOW FOR THE MANUAL: I didn't know this, as I am pretty new on switching away from analog. Yes, the manual batteries are the best!!! They have the best vape and longer battery life by far. My hubby who has the $85 silver bullet and I vaped at the same time. Mine has pretty much equal vape, and mine do not have the yucky aftertaste that his has. I can use the manuals for about 2 or 3 days or more without charging. The pink is gorgeous! I can't wait to get some more manual ones with other colors! I am truly 100% satisfied with this company, and they have the best customer service I have found so far! The gorgeous pink batteries and cases were what attracted me to this company in the first place, and they do AIM TO PLEASE!
    • My favorite battery on the go
      Review by Tyler on 3/24/2016
      Was afraid of reviews about shorter life and less vapor, but wanted a batt that didn't feel like a long cigarette holder. I've had it a week and LOVE it. The auto gun metal is looks cool and masculine. Size feels more like a real cigarette. It's life really isn't much shorter than a standard batt and makes great vapor. I still like my standard batt at home, but love this one when I'm out and about in the city.
    • Perfect!
      Review by Nicole Nehme on 3/23/2016
      I totally agree with the previous review. Very nice design, nice tight fit especially with the new premium carts. Purple battery has a pink light! Love it! Seems more powerful than other batteries I have had, too.
    • 5 Stars all the way.
      Review by Boyd Neeley on 3/19/2016
      That about sums it up. Superior product, great service and I love the Freebies Steve sends. A nice added touch!

    • X-long batteries
      Review by Debbie on 3/17/2016
      THE BOMB.... sold all the rest. waiting on a new one now.really last all day. I dont leave home without it.Thanks vapor4life
    • extra long battery
      Review by Evaughn Zills on 3/5/2016
      Nice. Not easy to loose. Yet in office could because it looks exactly like an ink pen especially in white. Last Long time between charges and produces clouds of vape.
      Review by Stephanie Thompson on 2/28/2016
      I purchased the extra long battery automatic, the extra long battery manual, the short battery automatic and short battery manual, all in pink, of course!!!! NOW FOR THE MANUAL: I didn't know this, as I am pretty new on switching away from analog. Yes, the manual batteries are the best!!! They have the best vape and longer battery life by far.

    • Only Way To Vape (manual only)
      Review by Raymond Havens on 2/26/2016
      This battery realy lets the favor out. Bought
      one to try and second came soon after.
      Review by Frank Messana on 2/1/2016
      These batteries ROCK!! The manual is a vapor making DREAM!! My first hit made me cough for the first time since I started vaping.... Nice assortment of colors too... Sweet....
    • Great batteries!!
      Review by Dex on 1/23/2016
      I have several of these in different colors. They work great, and I haven't had any problems with them at all. The price is excellent as well. I only wish the blue color was available in the smaller battery. You can only get it in the extra long battery.
    • Great!
      Review by Douglas Stromberg on 1/10/2016
      Bought 3, 2 days ago. All 3 charged up and ready to go. Very Fast Service and highly pleased. Product works well. No complaints.
    • Wonderful
      Review by Charlotte on 12/31/2015
      I use the short manual and love it. As a person with disability that affects both the strength and agility of my hands, this short manual works great for me. I found other brands to cumbersome, but V4L is balanced in a way the is completely comfortable. Of, using the shorty means having multiple chared and ready, but with all the color choices, this is not an issue to me. Thank you V4L.
    • Very Dependable & Durable Battery!
      Review by jacqi4arts on 12/30/2015
      My XL manual battery was received early October 2011. It has been more dependable & outlasted my XL manual battery with a "lifetime warranty" from a different retailer.. The other company's XL manual battery have been replaced several times due to manufacturing defects and/or other adverse issues.

      The factory purple finish has worn/chipped off in several locations from usage. The original dual coil cartridge on my V4L 3.5 ml tank caused the battery to lose some of it's original power; but it still works ok for daily use with regular cartridges and/or single coil tanks.
    • Best they have hands down
      Review by Ed Urbs on 12/25/2015
      This thing is a vapor machine. If you wan't to feel like your smoking an anolog this is definatly the way to go. Long last battery as well.
    • Holy Crap....
      Review by TexasRain104 on 12/20/2015
      Awsome...just awsome! Got the chrome in the mail, vaped it, and now I want more. All we need is to add the metallic red and a yellow LED, then I will have my "Iron Man". I began naming all of my batteries and the chrome got the name "BMF". Good job guys!
    • Amazing!
      Review by James Lewis on 12/9/2015
      Fabulous battery, lasts all day and has a consistent pull between charges.
    • Excellent Value
      Review by Dirk on 12/3/2015
      Not only do these have a great price, they are excellent performers. Highly recommended!
    • Aaamazing
      Review by That Guy on 12/3/2015
      Wow. i read the good reviews on this battery, and even though they were close to perfect i still was doubting that the product would be that great. let me tell you, i just got it tonight and i love it. charging hasnt been a problem at all. worth every penny
    • Pleasantly surprised
      Review by Elizabeth on 12/2/2015
      I'm happy to say this battery is one of my favorites. The grey cap on the end fell off, but other than that I've got no complaints with this battery. You have to pull a little harder on it to get air through, but the vapor I get out of it is thicker as a result.
      Review by Joe Lincoln on 11/27/2015
      Just got a new one. It has a bigger ash cap, both WOW and COOL CARTS fit perfectly and it has a 10-13 second cut off. These are a great value.
    • Numero Uno
      Review by Jennifer Moreno on 11/20/2015
      These manuals are the bomb, they look so sharp too in the platinum!
    • This is great
      Review by Mary Ann Luketich on 11/7/2015
      This black battery is a looker.I have checked around and the feel and size and PRICE cannot be beat.The reason I only gave 4 stars is because I am a heavy smoker(or WAS) and I have to charge a lot.But this gives strong vapors til it dies.I would recommend to anyone.
    • Great batt
      Review by linrag on 11/5/2015
      I've developed a preference for manual batteries as I like a longer drag. This is great and it lasts a long time between charges...not to mention it comes in great colors.
    • short battery life
      Review by Elizabeth Stotzer on 10/25/2015
      I got my short auto (in copper) about a week ago, and have to do the unplug/replug the charger trick to get it to fully charge. Also, I've had 5 V4L batteries in various sizes and types, and this is the only one that I have issues fitting onto all of my carts. Its like the screw bit at the top is too tall so the carts won't screw on all the way and make contact with the battery. I prefer the short autos for when I'm out and about but with all the issues it's become an 'at home only' battery which really bums me out.
    • Simple, yet effective.
      Review by Master Chief on 9/30/2015
      I am an avid gamer, need two hands on the controller. This baby sits in the mouth comfortably without being too weighty while keeping a steady vape.
      Review by Kris Botner on 9/12/2015
      I use nothing but these New XL batteries there is no comparison to any of my other model ecig and i have them all including some the titan tornado, mega 510, 901, NJOY models and my higher voltage and even my pass through , for some reason i get the best flavor using a xl battery with a WOW cartomizer full of my favorite e liquid its just unreal i LOVE it, clouds and clouds of vapor!!!!!
    • so stylish and elegant looking
      Review by moony on 9/11/2015
      Have the black auto and the pink manual.. very stylish looking. Battery lasts long.. I may be wrong but I find the auto to be easier to draw on than the manual. Vapor production is the same.
    • Incredible!
      Review by Elisa Bishop on 9/5/2015
      This was my 5th order....ordered 5 boxes of cartomizers and a purple XL battery...did not received the battery in my order...called costomer service right away and 2 days later I received my battery. It is AWESOME!! The purple battery has a pink light at the end and works great. V4L continues to be outstanding!
    • good batteries
      Review by mike pense on 8/30/2015
      I got 2 of these with my starter kit and bought 2 more in 2009 and they are still going strong
    • The Battery
      Review by Raymond Havens on 8/22/2015
      This battery is realy smooth. Very easy draw to me its more like a real smoke.
      It makes the hit a little less harsh, but still good hit.
      Smoking 48 years
      Vaping 5 months and Lovin it.
    • Agree 100%
      Review by rocks82 on 8/8/2015
      This is fantastic. Produces as much vapor as the pass through. Lasts and lasts. Love this battery!
    • Variable quality
      Review by Deborah P on 8/8/2015
      The bronze battery I got is perfect - exactly what I was hoping for in a mega-battery.
    • Customer Service & Quality product
      Review by Dennis W on 7/27/2015
      These XL batteries will last you all day with no problem. They have an easy draw that is more like an analog cig. I have since, retired my Smoke 51 Duo kit after getting 2 of these batteries and a charger. Their customer service is the best I have ever dealt with and pricing is great along with all the discounts they email you. They also give you free stuff to try with every order and only 3 days before your stuff shows up at your front door. Thank you V4L, keep up the great work.
    • Ryan
      Review by 10X better than the regular size on 7/21/2015
      Absolutely love this battery. It lasts me at least 2 days on a single charge vs the little more than half day on the regular size.
    • Love IT!!
      Review by Boyd Neeley on 7/19/2015
      This is the stuff. I can't even puff all the way until the beautiful diamond light goes out. People are amazed at the amount of vapor this produces. Getting ready to order another one.
    • The Best!
      Review by Shannon on 7/14/2015
      This battery is by far the longest lasting I have found! I was a heavy smoker, and now am a happy vapor! Buy this product and you will be glad you did, it is simply the best!
    • I am speechless!
      Review by Linda K on 7/9/2015
      I agree with the description 150%. It says it all!!! What more can I say.
    • Best ever
      Review by Julie on 7/9/2015
      I find these last longer than the diamond caps. Just wish for more colors in all sizes
      Review by Stephanie Thompson on 7/7/2015
      I purchased the extra long battery automatic with full logos, the extra long battery manual, the short battery automatic and short battery manual, all in pink, of course!!!!

      Review by Jon B on 7/7/2015
      Mind you, I prefer to use my USB pass-thru in the office as it has higher voltage, thus more vapor, BUT I use these batteries whenever I'm out and about. The auto batteries last a LONG time. I expect you'd maybe go through 2 in a day, if you're a heavy vaper, and 1 is definitely more than enough for the seldom-moderate. I've only recieved 1 faulty unit, and V4L quickly replaced it. Now I've been using the same two since I started vaping. They charge properly (great usb charger too!) and they should last at least a year or so I'm hoping. I'm coming right back here when it's time to replace! Thanks Steve!
    • priceless
      Review by sp on 7/6/2015
      Not only is the price right on this battery, but the draw is great on these and you have a red led!!! I couldn't wait for them to get them again!!!
    • lasts an extremely long time
      Review by Amber & Christopher George on 6/30/2015
      This is my new favorite battery, when I am away from my charging units. The battery lasts an extremely long time. I am very pleased with it.Thanks for all the samples guys.
    • Excellent battery, long life, great look
      Review by brett on 6/24/2015
      I switched from a 120 style analog and really missed that longer look so the main reason I got these was fashion or style. However, along the way I realized some benefits.

      This was my first use of a manual battery and now that I've got the hang of it, the manual battery gives a far superior vaping experience when compared to the automatics. The switch works great and I can even activate it easily when holding like a regular (but extra long) cigarette.

      The next benefit is how long this battery lasts. It lasts, and lasts and lasts. I charged these overnight initially, but subsequently just one lasts me the whole workday and it recharges in just a couple of hours.

      So it lasts a lot longer, the manual feature gives a better vaping experience and it just plain looks fabulous.
    • Great Battery
      Review by L. Henderson on 6/22/2015
      I have the red one with blue LED. The LED is very bright and the battery is a nice deep rich red. I have used all types of batteries and I think this one is the best because it is easy to draw on. Good job guys!
      I ordered another one, this time in white with pink LED. The red one is still going strong with a charge for 3 hours of heavy vaping.
    • a must
      Review by rocks82 on 6/8/2015
      These are just a must.
    • Vapor4Life is stands behind their products
      Review by Robert Dawson on 5/31/2015
      Both of my XL batteries are blinking on the 1st draw after a fresh charge.They worked all day in the begininng but each day the time got shorter.
      It was a tecnical issue but Vapor4life is taking care of problem,so I'm still going to use this product.
      Vapor4Life stands behind their products.
      Just plain honest service.
    • Mine works fine!
      Review by Customer on 5/25/2015
      They sent me one of these short autos by mistake (chrome) and it works just fine... really like the shorter size and not pushing a button.

      The Cool Carts with the higher resistance don't work as well on this as the Wow Carts, which are great.

      Sorry to see some of you got duds, I was going to order one for a family member who lives in another state. I know she'd like it, so I'm going to take a chance. *crosses fingers*

      Update: She loves it!! I'm using mine almost exclusively now, too. We get plenty of vapor and they seem to last a long time. Hers is the platinum color. We both have the medium sized manual batteries, which are nice too, but these feel more like cigarettes.

      I upped it a star, thanks.
    • Awesome!
      Review by Gina Bustamante on 5/22/2015
      These little things pack a powerful punch. They are the newest shorty's that they just got in. I love the XL's but sometimes I just want something smaller in my hand and these fit the bill. Good draw, tons of vapor. A+
    • Make Vaping Even Better
      Review by Ryan on 5/16/2015
      The size, shape and feel of the shorties make vaping all the better. The draw is great too.
    • great little auto
      Review by rocks82 on 4/29/2015
      while manuals seem to be very popular... i'm a huge fan of this little auto battery.
    • Works great
      Review by sss on 4/26/2015
      Mine works great except for the light on the tip not working. I use mine a out as often as I would smoke a reg cig. Got my replacement but it was the wrong battery. Got another replacement and the threads were bad but I'm hoping that 4 times is a charm and I will get a battery where the entire thing functions properly. When it does work it works great.
    • Look no further
      Review by Thajones on 4/26/2015
      The extra size of this is WELL worth it, and I got little drawstring carrying cases with mine. Lasts for at least 2 days with me, and I'm a heavy vaper; add the pushbuttom manual style, and no more "I sucked in too hard and got a mouthful of juice" issues.
    • great battery
      Review by E-cig fanatic on 4/21/2015
      I love this battery! I had a couple of short autos and they were good but this battery is amazing. It works great. The battery life seems to be about 10 hours so I am very pleased. I found I defiantly prefer a manual to an auto. I love just being able to get a drag at the click of a button instead of having to do a couple primer puffs like on an auto.
    • Nice!
      Review by Peter S on 4/9/2015
      These are great batteries. Last a long time and one thing I have noticed is a smoother hit when using longer batteries versus standard or short batteries.
    • My #1 Favorite Battery Ever!!
      Review by Deb on 3/28/2015
      This is the best battery ever! One charge lasts all day when I'm at work since I work with children (can't vape in front of them) and I leave the house at 6AM and return at 5PM. At night I go through about 1.5 charges since I can vape all I want at home.

      I have at least 8 of these because I love them so much!!! At home I usually use 3 batts at a time with different flavors on each. I own manual batts and all of the other lengths and this is the one I have chosen as my #1.
    • compared to other V4L batteries
      Review by skelekim on 2/21/2015
      I have 2 of these, as well as the diamond series auto, and a manual passthrough. The battery life seems to be a shorter than advertised & can sometimes be wonky with giving vape, but I am a first time vapor and maybe expecting more?! My passthrough delivers wonderfully.
    • Same Design Bigger Holes
      Review by Mandy Engle on 2/20/2015
      I just wanted to let everyone know I have noticed there was no info yet so I emailed CS and the explained this Model is the Same as the Original VP King Exta Long Battery but with "Larger Holes" thus resulting in an easier draw. So even though I have not used this Model yet just a day late to modify my order for the Original VK Extra Long Manual. I will go ahead and rate it 5 stars because of the easier draw and well worth the extra $1.00. This will have to be my next purchase from Vapor King! Thank you Vapor King for your supeiror quality and excellent Customer Service!!!
    • They fit
      Review by Vinman on 2/11/2015
      My auto battery fits the cool carts just fine.
    • Awesome batteries
      Review by Shemp on 1/26/2015
      I bought two of these so far and I have to tell you how great they are. Pair one of these with your favorite premium cartomizer and its just like an analog only way better!
    • Long lasting
      Review by Allen on 1/20/2015
      This battery is my favorite one. It last me just about all day on a single charge.
    • AWESOME!
      Review by Jeffrey Clemons on 1/10/2015
      These new batts ROCK!! Vapor production is pretty much indistinguishable from a pass through and the longer cutoff time is great! Battery life, so far, seems to be much improved too!
    • Great Shorty Battery
      Review by Jon Muzyk on 12/30/2014
      Kick Butt Little Auto battery! Gives you a Great pull through with little effort Very Very close to the Manual Battery Drag. Just doesn't quite last long In All the sizes cause of the Auto feature and the long drag time I'm guessing. Would highly recommend to a manual person trying to get a GOOD Auto for the times when time is tuff to use a manual battery. I'm actually in the process of pairing all my Manuals with either a shorty Diamond or Regular Diamonds. Little more cash but, WELL Worth it especially if you add the Derlin drip tip to it! Then it Rocks out easy and Smooth Full Hard Hits try you'll be pretty impressed. I was an All Manual Guy until I try this with the Derlin Drip tip and man does it help when you can't free the hand up like when working with both hands! Nice Smooth pull like a real Cig and a great Pull on it when your really hitting it hard... Never thought I dig an Auto but these are well worth the shot to try and the few extra bucks!
    • KR808 fan boy
      Review by Jeff Woodard on 12/28/2014
      I like the KR808! I purchased two from V4L mostly because of the awesome color selection. (black and white was a bit dull of a color selection) These batteries are a bit different than My original ones. The battery hole is much smaller, yet they seem more responsive when I take a drag. They fire quicker and just a bit harder than ones that came with my starter kit. (from another company) I am loving them so far and would highly recommended them!
    • chique long life

Elegant looking a conversation piece, long battery life, great vapor production.. didn't think the manuals rock like that .. comes with a cute velvet bag too ..vape with style! the automatics have a long battery life too but this one stays strong longer..(big smile ear to ear).
    • Great, long lasting battery
      Review by Matt on 11/15/2014
      I have had this battery for about 2 weeks and absolutely love it. It works great and lasts me all day. It's so nice not to carry a charger or a PCC around all day. I just grab the battery and a couple carts and I'm off. Great stuff. Love it!
    • Hands-down my favorite battery
      Review by Wack4Jack on 11/6/2014
      LOVE this battery. Nice sustained hit, long life, very sleek looking too (I have it in black). W/ the cartomizer attached its about as long as a 120 cig. Definitely my very favorite of all my batteries.
    • Love the new Manual Battery
      Review by Linda K on 10/31/2014
      The new manual battery just rocks. You will for sure be thrilled with the vapor!!! I use mine every day.

      Review by cam on 10/16/2014
      The first battery i baught wouldnt take a charge i dont know why. but i ordered 2 more and they both worked fine. Also the cut out time is longer than the previous manual ones i baught. overall i am very pleased with v4l

      Review by me,,,,,, on 10/15/2014
      My green ones head feel off, but that lettle sucker kept vaping, like a champ. and the battery life was great, so even though i didnt get the misterious light. I got a great vapor, so can not complain, looks isn't everything lol me.

    • Vaporing Away
      Review by Pat Croft on 10/4/2014
      I've experimented with the short batteries and then switch to these longer lasting batteries, because I like to puff like a pipe on a continue regular basis. At this rate these batteries will go for about an hour before they need recharging. Hence it is wise to have several batteries with a couple of wall chargers to keep them in rotation.

      Oh and I like the automatic over the manual just because its automatic with no buttons to push.

      The methodology is racy, quiting a 40 year old cig habit so painlessly. It took about 2 months to learn about what I was doing with a lot of stuff to experiment with and a lot to experiment about.

      Nothing but top notch service and delivery to.
    • Deff gets thru the workday
      Review by Joe Rice on 10/1/2014
      I got a regular with my kit and only six hour life wasnt cutting it thru the workday, had to bring the charger to work and blah blah blah, But this one lasts about 9 hours and hits like a champ, i feel like it hits better than the regular batteries. The XL is the way to go ...
    • Good buy
      Review by Brandon on 9/29/2014
      This thing works great. IMO its way better than the KR808/Vapor King auto batts w/ the 5 second cut off.

      Why hassle with a 3 piece vape when you can save time and frustration with a Vapor King.
    • Very Pleased
      Review by Amber & Christopher George on 9/7/2014
      I have shopped for the perfect e cig, for awhile before I found V4L. There batteries out perform any I have tried, ( tried 6 different companies ). There customer service is outstanding, and shipping is quick every single time. I recommend V4L to everyone.
    • Lots of vapor and keeps on going!!!
      Review by Mary Ann Luketich on 9/1/2014
      This is my favorite battery so far.It produces tons of vapor and lasts all day.SUPER!!!!
    • Chrome Extra Long Battery w/Silver Metallic Blanks
      Review by James N Tresler on 8/21/2014
      I just received my Chrome Extra Long Manual Battery and the five-pack of Silver (Metallic) Blank Cartomizers. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL COLOR COMBO THAT WILL DRAW ATTENTION. As for the extra-long manual battery...IT ROCKS AND HOLD A CHARGE FOR DAYS AND DAYS.
    • works great but..
      Review by Peter on 8/20/2014
      Fantastic for sitting around the house, watching movies, driving, bonfires. Its small, discrete, and feels like a cig. The battery life thou.. its about 2-3 hours. Wish it could last longer. All and all its a great product.

      Review by Manual Batteries work so much better on 8/14/2014
      So much better than the automatics.
    • Gotta be honest
      Review by Geoff on 7/16/2014
      I liked the old shorty autos better. These new ones use the same switch (and are the same size) as the diamond series. They don't seem to require the unplug/re-plug trick to get them to charge, but I just really miss the feel of the old version. IMHO the old version (which was a little bit thinner, lighter and shorter) had a slightly tighter draw to them, and I liked that.
    • Definately the Cadillac of the rechargeables
      Review by Melissa Alessio on 7/8/2014
      I was a lil hesitant ordering the push button model due to fear of it malfuctioning after reading some bad reviews on some other sites, but "boy" am I glad I did...It's FANTASTIC!!!! I absolutely love the fact that when you take a drag you have total control over the volume of vapor that you want/need and the battery life on this steam engine lasts me at least 6-8 hours of average use, on a fresh charge.. I never have to worry about forgetting the car charger (not saying I leave the car unit at home) but just saying. Bottom line...this thing is a workhorse guys! I'll definately be ordering another one in the not too distant future that's for sure, maybe a different color..hehe I feel like a gitty lil kid in a candy shop..THANKYOU V4L!!! and happy vapin guys.
    • No complaints
      Review by BuckoBill on 7/7/2014
      Just ordered one in black. What a great looking cig. I can do nothing but rave about it. The thing keeps on vaping for a super long time and the cut off on it is I dont know cause I cant take a drag long enough to see :)
      Keep up the good work V4L.
    • old Reliable fave battery
      Review by June on 6/16/2014
      I've tried the short and regular size auto batteries and they quickly died on me (3 months typically). I have the above batteries and they last at least 6 months, but I had one last 9 months before it kicked the bucket. I love the selection of colors. I think the chrome one is pretty hot.
    • No Comparison
      Review by CS22 on 6/5/2014
      Had just bought another one of these and i could not be more satisfied with the quality,dependability and long life of this battery. auto did not give me the draw i wanted and this answered my dilemma.
    • Fabulous!!
      Review by Matthew Troxell on 6/4/2014
      Thes batteries are just the answer to the shorty auto batteries I initially ordered. They were fine but required alot of charge time. These last and last and the vapor produced if unreal. Highly recommended.
    • awesome
      Review by Clint Johnson on 5/1/2014
      I'm new to vaping and wish I had found this site first. I got a starter kit with the normal batteries, and was disappointed with the length. After scouring the web I luckily found V4L and immediately got this battery. Works great, feels great, is great. And shipping was blazing fast. This is my go-to place for all things vape.
    • Manual Batteries
      Review by Remer Adhara on 4/29/2014
      I've been purchasing the manual batteries for a while now, having started with two auto batteries with my Starter Kit and having them quickly becoming dysfunctional. But I have to say, the manual batteries definitely do the job! Having always been a pretty hefty smoker, I can usually vape all day, but one regular manual battery provides me with heavy vaping for more hours than I'm willing to calculate, because who would when they don't have any complaints? For faulty batteries, all I have to do is contact the support line and they'll either help me to fix it, or send me a replacement, no questions asked. Then I receive my new battery within 3 business days with excellent service and 0% inappropriate attitude from the staff. That's all I can ask for, and I give it 5 stars because I can accept mistakes, as long as I'm helped with them appropriately. I can happily say that I'll stay a customer of v4l for many years to come. Get the manual batteries!
    • good

    • This is THE battery to buy!
      Review by E-cig fanatic on 4/19/2014
      Best battery I've ever had. Highly recommend it. Long life, good vap! This is the way to go.
    • Longer lasting
      Review by E-cig devotee on 4/14/2014
      I think manual batteries are much better than the automatics. I did not think I would like the extra long ones but if you vape a lot then these are the batteries for you. The charge last much longer than the others. I have 2 and will be ordering a third because I like them so much.
    • Awesome!
      Review by Barry on 4/10/2014
      I have tried four other Ecigs and not one of them comes close to the preformance of these. This battery is very long lasting and produces the most vapor I have ever seen! Once you try one of these you will never go back. Size does matter. The best customer service I have ever seen too! Thank you Vapor4life! They keep me totally satisfied. WoW Vapor! Great throat hit!
    • Terrific batteries
      Review by Chris Jackson on 3/31/2014
      Though I have not had time to test these long term, they have been amazing to use. I am paranoid to never drain my batteries as it shortens their life so I charge frequently, but even so, they last plenty long enough for me before charging.
    • Great vapor!!!
      Review by Ashley Stewart on 3/11/2014
      Excellent batteries! Much better battery life than my 510 mode from another companyl. I got 2 chrome and 1 purple. The color selection is outstanding! I will definately be purchasing more and i recommend these to everyone!
    • powerhouse

    • Manual Short Battery
      Review by Rodney on 2/24/2014
      This battery is GREAT. Charged up and powerful enough to help produce a great vape. Used with coolcart berry flavor cartos and done AWESOME job. Going to order more in diff.colors to always have when ready. Great Product V4L
    • fantastic!
      Review by rocks82 on 2/17/2014
      These new shorties are amazing! Vape machines! Draw isn't too hard and they produce great vapor while fitting nicely in my runt-sized hand!
    • Amazing
      Review by Evan Leindecker on 2/13/2014
      The manual XL is simply amazing. This bat generates so much thick warm vapor it's ridiculous. I've been using automatic standard Vapor King batteries and might have to make a total switch to XL manuals. Anyone trying to make up their mind as to whether they should purchase this, DO IT ASAP =].
    • Vapor pipeline
      Review by Philip Evans on 2/5/2014
      I bought this battery with my UUM Kit because I wanted an auto battery to use in the car. It is a vapor hose! Was afraid it might be noise sensitive, but it has performed perfectly. Now my favorite. Ordering more asap.
    • great!
      Review by Stephanie Thompson on 1/26/2014
      I purchased the short battery automatic and short battery manual, all in pink, of course!!!! The automatics have good vape, are gorgeous, and batteries last longer than the other companies I have tried. NOW FOR THE MANUAL: I didn't know this, as I am pretty new on switching away from analog. Yes, the manual batteries are the best!!! They have the best vape and longer battery life by far. My hubby who has the $85 silver bullet and I vaped at the same time. Mine has pretty much equal vape, and mine do not have the yucky aftertaste that his has. I can use the manuals for about 2 or 3 days or more without charging. The pink is gorgeous! I can't wait to get some more manual ones with other colors! I am truly 100% satisfied with this company, and they have the best customer service I have found so far! The gorgeous pink batteries and cases were what attracted me to this company in the first place, and they do AIM TO PLEASE!
    • the superior battery
      Review by truxton lafrance on 1/15/2014
      i started off with a vapor king xl auto batt, then with some prodding from some other vapers i decided to go with a manual. and boy i am not dissapointed. it's easy to get used to, there is not some massive button, and this seems to make far more vapor and operate far more consistantly than the auto battery, though the auto is far easier to use while driving
    • excellent
      Review by heather gamble on 1/12/2014
      received this as a freebie and its awesome it is XL but it lasts an XL time!
    • Best performer and good looks...
      Review by Dirk on 1/8/2014
      Just got these a few days ago to replace my aging black manual XL. Fantastic battery life, and they look pretty darn cool. What else can you ask for?
    • Love the battery life!
      Review by Mike Glines on 1/5/2014
      I use these batterys with an adapter to power my 510 atty, and absolutely love the consistent battery life. Easily lasts me 6-7 hours or so of constant vaping. I am very impressed! Yes, they are long, but you have to expect that to achieve the battery life, and actually its classiness kinda grows on you.
    • BLEW ME AWAY!!!!
      Review by mark on 1/1/2014
      I got this after ordering a manual passthrough.I love the passthrough and I was hoping this manual would come close as far performence.
      IT DOES!!! I love it! No more primer hits, SMOOTH DRAW, KILLER VAPOR. You need to try one of these. I'm totally a manual guy from now on. Now my wife wants one.I'ts GREAT to have a company who never stops blowing me away.Thanks V4L for THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE!!!
    • Quality
      Review by Nick on 12/18/2013
      I got mine about 4 months ago and it's finally time for a review. It's a good product. Aside from cosmetic scratches, it's just the same as the day I got it. As long as you keep the connector clean, including the holes on the threads and the threads itself, it'll last. No connection problems like I had for my automatic, but even that was easily fixed with a little tinkering with the carts.
      Review by April on 12/10/2013
      These battery's are by far the very best!! I have tried them ALL now and these ones dont even compare to the other battery's. Great throat hit and V4L customer service is the best. When I ordered two of these one was bunk and they replaced it immediately for me. If your worried that the button is weird and you wouldn't get used to it (like many people tell me) dont hesitate to try it. You will get used to it instantly. I have found that with the automatic battery's not all cartomizers fit on the automatic battery's. but with this manual they all fit with absolutely no problems. As you can see I am very satisfied and I know you will be too!!
    • You buy it once... and NEVER look back!
      Review by Oliver C on 12/8/2013
      If you plan to vape casually, buy the xl manual. If you plan to vape heavily, buy 2 xl manual kits. I have used the medium manual sized battery and needed a battery charge that could last me through a work day. 2 xl's manual WILL do that for you. If you plan to vape you need this now!!! I'm very serious about this piece of advice and you won't be disappointed.
    • It still works after 6 months
      Review by Jacki on 11/28/2013
      I have had my manual battery for six months and I use it daily and charge it daily and it still works! I am dead serious. Never had any problems with any of the batteries I have purchase from V4L , I admit I am not a real heavy vapor but I do vape daily and I am shocked and pleased to say I am using the same battery I got six months ago. I also use one that I got here four months ago. None of the batteries I have bought from other sites have lasted that long. Thanks V4L
    • XL Auto Battery
      Review by Dennis on 11/7/2013
      Just got 2 of these, 1 auto and 1 Manual. I like the automatic better so far, the manual battery gets to hot. It took awhile to get used to the draw on these (much easier) compared to my Smoke 51 Duo (i started out with) but now I like it way better than the 51 Duo. V4L - Thanks for the great service and product!
    • A new level of vaping pleasure
      Review by Penny on 10/24/2013
      Until I had the pleasure of trying these new shorties, I was perfectly content with my manual batteries but these have instantly become my favorite. The size, the weight, the amazing vapor production ... wow! The V4L team has done it again! Perfection!
    • Best batter I have ever used!
      Review by Chad on 10/10/2013
      These XL manual batteries are absolutely perfect. Excellent draw and vapor production. Really makes the flavors "pop" and lasts a good long time.
    • Love the size!
      Review by Ashley Hall on 10/8/2013
      My first shorty was not working correctly but the guys at V4L fixed that without a single question asked! Even though i've had some minor difficulties I'd never look to another company for anything vaping wise simple because these guys' customer service (etc) is phenominal! But back to the battery this is the size of an actual cig (king size/non-100's) and the battery lasts still about as long as the reg size i got!
    • Lasts FOREVER.
      Review by Deb on 9/28/2013
      Not forever but seems like it!! I started vaping with V4L Auto XLs and thought I would never use anything different until I tried the regular length autos. I'm sold on the regular length due to the larger amount of air flow when sucking. You can suck more vapor, faster, with the regular length batteries. I use my XLs when I'm going on vacation (needing extra battery life) and for slightly overfilled cartos. They work great on overfilled cartos because the slower air-pull keeps the juice from coming out of the top of the carto and getting into your mouth.

      Its all personal preference though.

      If you want to be in stealth mode the XLs are also great because they almost look like a pen due to the length.
    • Great, when they work.
      Review by Chris Favreau on 9/24/2013
      These batts are some of the best I've ever vaped with..when they work. My first ever order I had a DOA (ordered 2). I received a replacement (which is still working) and the other from the original order died as well. One very positive thing I can say is that Robert in customer service has treated me well and has sent replacements w/in a week(waiting on replacement #2).
      These ARE great batts, I think I may just have had a run of bad luck. I've been vaping for 11 months now btw and I think these are worth giving a shot. (I will change my review to 5 stars if both replacements work properly)
    • THE batteries to own
      Review by thomas ouellette on 9/10/2013
      I recently bought 2 of the XLs looking for longer life between charges. I certainly get that but the vape is great! Strong and steady. They vape like a passthrough!
      I can't recommend these enough. I dropped one outside a local store and despite being run over and dented, it still works fine!
      5 stars++
    • Great in every way
      Review by Ronnie on 9/9/2013
      I started with the auto batteries which my girlfriend loves, but as soon as I received this I knew I would never go back to auto. Not only does the manual battery last longer, but you control how strong, and how often by having to press that button. Compared to ANY product or brand name that I've tried, this battery is by far the longest lasting and has helped me actually cut down. Don't get me wrong, if you have not intention of not vaping, this is still a great product. You have more control over how strong, and how long the drag/puff you take is. Aslo, there is NO WORSE FEELING than to run out of batteries with no back up and buy analog cigarettes.
    • Washed It
      Review by AARON Spanton on 9/5/2013
      So I've had this battery for about a week now and forgot it was in my shirt pocket and the wife washed it. Cant believe it but pulled it out and hit the switch and it fired right up and produced vapor like a champ. Awesome.
      Review by Ben on 8/30/2013
      These batteries are the best! I think V4L have finally got it perfect... these batteries + premium carts!

      Review by Beci on 7/14/2013
      Lasts a long time with plenty of strength. Compared to other batteries from other companies, these batteries are the best! I vape ALOT, so I use 2 charges a day (regular length, manual). I have at least three charged at a time, and the many colors and styles go with whatever setting, outfit or place I go!

    • Its like a personal FOG machine
      Review by Shall on 6/28/2013
      I was looking for something that would give me the performance like my passthru does. This works just as good and probably beats my passthru if I could hit that 10sec mark.
    • Wonderful!
      Review by Patricia Watson on 6/24/2013
      I love my Vapor King Manual Battery! This is great! I no longer smell of cigarette smoke, yet still get the satisfaction of "smoking". This is great! Thank you for having such a wonderful product. The battery life is perfect. With my "smoking" style, it lasts about 2 1/2 to 3 days on a charge. Then I just plug it in before I go to bed, and it is ready to go the next day.
      Review by Joe Lincoln on 6/16/2013
      Just got a new one. It has a bigger ash cap, both WOW and COOL CARTS fit perfectly and it has a 10-13 second cut off. These are a great value.
    • The Best
      Review by Peter S on 6/16/2013
      I wasn't sure what a manual battery was but had an idea. This is the way to go. You have to try it and figure it out yourself. You won't go back to autos unless you have issues pushing a small button. You hold the button while you are hitting the cart and let off after you are done hitting it. You get a more full hit on each try instead of a fading hit with the auto. Try it. You will love it.

      I have three of these regular sized batteries, one of the older ones and two of the newer version. I love the old one and it has held up beautifully, and I love one of the new ones, both of these are copper colored. However, I have new version in chrome and it died VERY quickly (though not within the extremely short 45 day replacement period).
    • Be sure of why you want this one
      Review by Thajones on 5/19/2013
      It's not a bad battery at all, just not an all day battery, due to the size. My wife originally got it because she didn't want this huge battery hanging out of her mouth, and for this purpose, it works great. Me, I'd kill it in 2 hours probably ;)
    • Great batteries
      Review by JB on 5/2/2013
      I gave 4 start because sometimes the battery post gets pushed down and needs to be adjusted or it acts wonky. I wish there was a blue color battery.
    • My favorite battery
      Review by Jennifer Moreno on 4/14/2013
      Lasts and lasts and really performs with consistant good taste, vapor, and throat hit! This is my "go to" battery of choice!

      I LOVE the XL batteries. They keep a long charge. Manuals are great. The V4L team are the best. They keep you smilin. :)
    • Awesome!

      I have been using the shorty auto battery and it is good but I love this battery!! I love everything about V4L so far. Not one complaint here! You are the best! Thanks soooo much.

      Review by dcman on 3/28/2013
      you meed to know that even with moderate use these last only 8 weeks or so before they stop charging and then must be carefully recycled

      Watch the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpHt20j1YfQ

      I've had a couple of these batteries laying in a box for the past 2 months because they did not work with cool carts. I just followed the video instructions and they work fine now.

      Much Better than the generic batteries!!!

      More vapor
      Longer battery life
      Better connection between the Cartomizer and Battery

    • Great Starter Batteries
      Review by Bee on 3/18/2018
      These were the first batteries I started with for vaping. I use manuals. They typically hold a great charge, though every now and then you'll find one that won't hold as well. They tend to last about 6 months very well. From there I have some that simply died, and some that are still kicking a year later.

      I've since moved up to the Titan batteries, but these are great starters, easy to charge, use, transport, and work very well!
    • Long life
      Review by thomas on 3/9/2018
      I still have a few batteries that are 4 years old and they still hold a charge
    • good battery, but never available
      Review by drip on 6/3/2018
      I have used the XL Vapor King manual batteries for the past 5 years. Dependable battery, lasts a long time. But in recent year the Vapor King is hardly ever available, particularly in the XL size. On the current website, there are only 2 of the 5 colors available in any size; and for those 2, only the regular length size is available.
    • Fair product
      Review by Alan on 8/3/2018

      Good for a beginner. Batt life not that long
    • good battery
      Review by Emily on 5/22/2018
      these are what i started vaping with along with the cool carts, they're good to learn from if you're new to vaping.
    • Okay, will do the trick
      Review by Jessica on 7/30/2016
      Doesn't really have the staying power of the titan, but it's pretty good as a backup.
