1. Welcome to Thailand Vapers, an English language forum for members in Thailand and the rest of Asia to talk about vaping.
    Commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, vaping is really about the use of personal vaporizers (mods) and atomizers (tanks, clearos, RBAs, RDAs, RTAs) filled with e-liquid.
    Are you looking to get started or an old hand at vaping? Everyone is welcome here so sign up today and talk vaping with us!

    No shame here and no need for @ThatFarang to be embarrassed. Where here to help, gaining all the knowledge about vaping, electronics and safety is not easy.

    Its quite normal to think that a battery is a battery, and if sold to end users then it would be safe. Its not the case with Li-Ion battery's and the dangers, even with a camera or phone battery should be made more clear.

    Just read. I hope OP is alright. And yes Mack is correct, there is no need to be embarrassed here. This possibly the most friendliest, easy going message board I have ever been on.

    I agree--you should give us all a shout-out so we know what's up--and, check out the fastTech link--they even have the updated Samsungs, which I would love to buy, but I have far too many of the previous version to afford to just replace them. Most folks on here will be using Samsung, LG, AW, Efest and probably not much else, I reckon.

    Oh yeah--and, of course, Sony--I should remember since I have about 8 VTC4's, duh.....old age, damn you.

    Nah, of course not, this was a lighthearted joke, not a sarcastic remark.
    Everyone in this or any other group started at 0 and had to learn things, that is natural and no one looks down at someones mistakes.

    I'm just hoping he hasn't taken my advice to hawk them on the bay. All joking aside though, come on back and join in the fun. We're a fun bunch I promise :)

    I miss the good old days when all you had to worry about was farang falling from balconies. Now you have to worry about farang exploding and catching fire. Anyways OP hope you are alright.

    The joys of marrying a Thai... a few drinks, and, "look darling, something interesting happening in the car park", and - Oops, over you go.

    "He was so very worried about money" (55555, I've got it all).

    Maybe now, a sneaky battery change could achieve the same result.
