    Ego Batteries... How long should they last.

    Hi again. So i've been a readin' demon since discovering vaping. Lots of interesting info but one concerning piece of info concerning battery life.

    The info in reviews isn't really much help because everyone vapes differently but i've read many people talk of "vaping all day at work" and "8/10 hours between charges. I have an ego with a couple (650mAH) batteries. They both only last about 2-3 hours each. I chain-vape a bit when in hand, but much like cigs i put it down for half an hour between vapes. Does this sound about right to the experienced folks here or should I be concerned?

    How long do you get from yours?

    Apologies if discussed before, I've searched but may be still a bit nooby to use the right search terms. Thanks for any insight.

    base it on mls vaped or its irrelevant seeing as everyone vapes differently.
    2 650mAh a day sounds about right, a 900 used to get me through a day, i rarely vaped it till it died tho.
    I imagine 2ml or a bit less would be expected from a 650 .. maybe 1.5 ..
    atty/carto resistance will make a difference in that the added drain of an LR will trigger the low volt cutout on a 650 earlier.
    the 900/1000 may cope a little better in that aspect.

    I generally use 2x 650mAh ego batteries a day while at work. Can get much longer than 2.5 hours out of them. probably around 4hrs pretty consistent vaping, if I take breaks I can get 6hrs. I dont work at a desk, but probably spend 20 mins out of each hour vaping. what cartomisers are you using on them? Low or standard resistance?

    I'd only get 3-4 hours out of a 650MaH,

    I generally take a 1000 mah with me, and a spare 1000 mah fully charged at all times.

    Well, I'll hold off until my supplies arrive so i can test/measure properly but perhaps I've got counterfeits... They were mall bought in asia. I'm not getting anything like the above. Chain vaping would be about half an hour. Probably about 16 - 20 drops from dekang juice into the cartridge in total per battery.

    Yep sounds like fakes. Do you have the 5 click on/off function?

    I don't think so. Unless that means that the LED flashes if you hold the button for 11 seconds (though the instructions say 5 seconds hehe).

    No the genuine ones will turn off if you click the button 5 times quickly.
