RE: What batteries do you use in your PV?
I started with 900mA eGo and while they were ok, they were very long and heavier than what I wanted.  

I then bought a pair of 510 180mA e-cigs so I could vape while on the Harley.  Light enough to hold in my mouth while riding and no button to push.  The perfect riding vape.  Wrong.  I get about 15 pulls (if that) on a full charge and they die on me.  Horrible, horrible batteries in those things. I don't know how anyone uses them.

My latest is an e-pipe mod that runs on 18350 cells.  I have some new Trustfire IMR cells for it and they work really great.  The pipe format disappears in my hand and I can break it all down and store it all in a little hard case for travelling.

I also have an 18650 Mech Mod on the way that I am excited for.  This should give an all day vape in a very compact form as well.  Looking forward to this one arriving. Smile

I'm using Kamry Ecab (14500) as edc, not too big although not small either Big Grin
Now most of the time using VV Usb attached to my notebook or usb 2A plug and using Vamo (18650) if need more heat for tobaccos flavor.

Hey, Calmaja!  Glad you joined! Smile

How long does an 14500 cell last in a vape?  I was actually eyeing up this little hybrid for an EDC vape.  Handsome little mod and uses a 14500.

RE: What batteries do you use in your PV?
Hello JM, I must say that depend on the battery capacity, how you pull it and voltage that we use. I can use it half day or more using 700 -800 mah battery but not on high voltage.
I can say roughly about the same time with using EGO 1100 (on low).
