    battery worries

    hey I'm charging my batteries on this charger... http://i.imgur.com/J9S1FRO.jpg

    i have:
    1x 18350 efest (unprotected)
    1x 18500 efest (unprotected)
    1x 18500 efest (protected)
    1x 18650 efest (unprotected)
    1x 18650 efest (protected)

    i was told that there are lots of dangers with charging these batteries on my little charger.. I have to use an adaptor to make it work with australian power points too which is what the grey thing is in the second pic...
    is there much to worry about? i never leave them charging longer than necessary and always in my room when I'm home.

    trustfire tr 001's retail from $10-$15 from reputable aus vendors like juice whore, vape king, or ecigmodshop

    not the quickest, but tried and trusted technology for cheap as chips

    Depends on the charger, If its worked alright so far i wouldnt stress, use it in a cookie tin/charging bag if you want to be extra careful. As long as your at home while its charging your good man.

    maybe buy one of these $30 chargers and get a good nights sleep Steam-e-cigs | Nitecore i4 charger - Batteries and Chargers - Products
    They also have $5 shipping.

    I've always gone with the pay a little more for a charger, well worth it in the long run. Checkout Soshine 18650 AU S1 MAX III VER 3 Rapid Charger FOR 1 4 Lithium ION Battery | eBay This guy is a member of this forum, but he also knows his shit, when it comes to battery's and the price is pretty competitive.

    its worked pretty well so far... i went in to vapourtron in melbourne a few weeks ago and they showed me one of their batteries that went bye bye... they also showed me the burn in their cabinet where it went flying into... so I'm kinda worried about my house going bye bye with my little battery! i think i will get one of the steam ecig chargers!

    +1 for Supersports600. This is the one I'm using. Great knowing what voltage etc they are when your putting them in, and the bonus of charging your 1.5v nimh's, and some others.

    I think any vaper new or old, don't go cheap on a charger or your batteries, buy from a good source.
