RE: What have you got on order ?
Duracell Procells (The industrial ones) definitely for 9V alkaline batteries. Or the exorbitantly expensive Energizer lithium ones. You can often get them at decent prices off eBay. I use 9V Procells in all my meters. 9V rechargeables are no use in my experience.

For an external sensor for a weather station I always use Energizer lithium AAs for their low temperature performance. Just got a dozen of them from eBay for a tenner. That will do for the next ten or so years.

The very first Duracell AA rechargeables were Eneloops but then they changed to Chinese cells. If they have a white surround at the + end, they are Eneloops, if they have a black colour, they are Chinese cells.

They all have a black end, I would say about 25% of them have died at least, they just won't charge, so I binned them the light on the charger was just flashing low voltage, yet they advertise them as holding a charge well! I'll use the 9v rechargeable for as long as they last, then just change over to the Procells, they are for Ir temp guns, I have normal ones which have lasted a long time, but they need replacing which is why I thought rechargables would be better

Tongue RE: What have you got on order ?
Just realised that the Holic comes with a couple of 1ohm Ni80 coils - should be good for MTL at around 12W - high for me[Image: tongue.gif]. I will need my hard hat and flame proof gloves for this.[Image: smile.gif]

RE: What have you got on order ?
Well today i ordered a

HellVape HellBeast Hybrid Sub-Ohm Tank

Rincoe Manto X 228W Box Mod

The Rincoe was on sale so I thought I'd try it out £24.99 Smile
And the Hellbeast was recommended by Paul and after seeing some reviews looks a good tank only thing was the only one that was available was in gold but still looks nice Smile
