Wow I dont think i have been so scared for awhile…So I use a Nitecore charger the Stand up ones 8 bay and getting 21700 batteries in and out are a pain in the ass…Just a minute ago I go to put a Battery in this charger and imtears off the insulator and all I see is smoke … I grab battery and toss it in a plastic garbage next to me and leave room …So I am off to buy this guy …I was actually just asking @woftam about it 2 days ago …
Too close for me and ill stick to my 18650s until I get this bad boy
You could be right…I have used the 8 bay stand up but just got into 21700 mods a year ago or so…Itbsays its compatible which it is but its a tight fit…This new one is supposed to take 8 21700 without a problem
Next time (hopefully there isn’t a next time) maybe the plastic trash can is not the best plan - if the battery was going into a runaway situation the reaction can continue after the cause is removed. Getting it outside on a non flammable surface would probably be the best method.
Ya…I figured the trash would contain it ling enough to grab the extinguisher…Ill tell ya I damn near shit myself , problem with getting it outside fast enough is my mixiing room is upstairs but I get ya
Whoa! Glad it wasn’t a disaster (or worse) fiddy, made my get up and go check which charger I got, it’s a nitecore 4 bay and yeah the 21700 are a bit tight fit, no much wiggle room. Thanks for the heads up
The stand up is a pain comapred to the 4 bay but i got it becuse its more compact and I can put two of them in the same space as one that lays flat . Having nore room isnt worth a 21700 blowingg though . Ya Battery Safety is real lol
Make me be a bit more careful yanking my 21700’s out the charger anyhoo
Should’ve thrown a few more of those in the cart this morning too fuckit: I don’t even want to use anything takes 18650s after seeing how much more juice the 21700’s hold.
matter of fact, 21700’s have saved me feeling any need to order a dual battery mod which is good since most are too chunky to comfortably carry in a pocket, really… sure they fit alright but they’re no longer necessary unless you’re set on 100W sub-ohm storm-clouds, which I give no fucks about.
I’ve had one those mild but annoying headaches all day today wtf
And why - after years of training Facebook to only suggest hot chicks as friend suggestions - is it suddenly suggesting trannies… I must’ve got conned by one somewhere along the way…
Now I’ll have to dig right through my friends list, find the fake and unfriend the sucker.
