You must have had shite eGo batts...

Running all sorts of LR cartos for years, and none ever killed mine.

A curious resurrection of a thread...

How did you reach that?

(Not that I was discussing it... Wink)

I was referring to how we was trying to repair a battery that had gone up in smoke instead of discussing how it could be disposed of safety as these type of batteries wasn’t designed to be taken apart they wasn’t serviceable from my memory.

Maybe so - I found several just stopped working, dead. None of mine, they belonged to mates using dual coil clearos. Probably the electronics fried.

RE: Just killed ego battery
I have some good eGo battery without the Li-poly cell inside, and many working ones, should you need a couple.

Since the pods come, I retired (with some sadness) the eGo / K1 setups. The late Nautilus AIO and the Breeze 2 are plainly too good in comparison.

The Vivid 1100 batteries (Vivid is a BigT brand) are the best eGo I have, they deliver almost 3 Amps instead the usual 2.

Irony is, all pod systems are eGo which have been reshaped somewhat. I bet the next big hit of pod system will be a VV one...

I no longer use EGO batteries, neither do any of my mates, as the lack of power was too constraining. Seems that manufacturers nowadays are more willing to thrash the batteries, hopefully the electronics are now up to it.

The best of the Spinner batteries for power was the 1300 rather than the bigger Spinner 2 (1600) - the 2 limited on both volts and current, whereas the 1300 limited on power - could kick out more current at lower volts. Maybe they will be adapted for pods?

RE: Just killed ego battery
The King of eGo batteries, was my proud setup at the time.
Modified with a NCR18650B, it has a 100 kHz controller, no that 5.5 V stepup with PWM of the time...
