    Batteries in Oz?

    Hey all,

    New vaper here (and loving it)!! I was just wondering where everyone else gets their batteries from? I am thinking about getting a Vamo V5 from FT (the Vaping veterans at this site talked me out of getting a Nemesis clone). I realise that I will have to buy the batteries, charger and protank separately from the Vamo. I will buy all non - battery stuff from FT but where can I get cheapish, fast delivered batteries (in Australia)?

    I've read that I'll need 2 x 18350 and 1 x 18650...Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    +1 for SS600 - he's THE MAN for batteries.

    Get the stainless steel version - the others scuff up very quick

    How long do they usually take to get delivered?
    DO you guys get your chargers from FastTech or is there somewhere is Oz to get them?

    SS600 does chargers as well.

    Batteries have to go by road freight so depending on where you are from Sydney will determine how long it will take.

    With batteries and chargers it is important to get them from a vendor that knows what they are doing, as there are safety concerns and fakes on the market which some inexperienced vendors are falling victim to.

    I think vapebar has always sold the best charges IMO, my first charger was the soshine V3 and still to this day i believe it is right up there with the top.

    All the major vendors sell batteries... I know SuperSports600 is well known among the community, and a great helpful bloke from my personal experiences

    EDIT: Just read that there may be fakes on the market... Juicewhore known for decent battery products? They were the only locals i could find that had the 18350 barrel mod, as well as the black eVic housings, so i grabbed my batteries from there too...

    Cheers guys!!

    Just one more question - From my research on the nemesis clone, I understand that a particular 18350 is required because the mod barrel width is quite thin. I read that some people have even stripped the outer case off one batteries to make them fit...

    Those of you who have Nemesis clone's - which particular battery (name/brand and model) do you use? Can I buy them from Supersports600?

    Cheers,
    Tsu

    Good chems will fit most batteries.
    Even the $30 chem I bought from e5cig will fit a pana protected (dia wise, I haven't tested length wise - I find the chem a PITA for battery adjustments compared to other clones I have so you're going to have to send me an ebeer for me to bother ).

    But the point is as far as SS600, and batteries in general, I use pana cgr18650ch and efests from ss600, and sonys and AWs (bought from elsewhere but he sells them now too anyway)
    I have preference to the 18490 size though as favourites, but I don't use a Vamo, but use them in a king, astra, chem and private v2.
