    Unfortunately, there are few vendors I trust to ship me genuine 18650 batts, FT was my main source & they always shipped genuine cells but no more, there are no options left for shipping batteries from FT now. Hopefully they'll find another way toship them but for now, it is impossible to get them on FT.

    I've been pretty lucky, in getting genuine cells every time but my luck is mostly self made, since I research vendors before purchasing from them, however, vendors sometimes get duped, good vendors will pull that stock immediately they discover the fakes & offer replacements/refunds to affected customers.

    @ Noe did you not give me a link some time back for an Aussie store on flebay?
    Are his batteries doggy also?

    go to fleabay, type supersports600 into the search bar, you'll find his store.
    His cells are all GUARANTEED genuine, he will replace fakes if he sent you any, at his own expense, not that he has ever had to do that because he is vigilant & knows the right suppliers to buy from.

    @ Noe, @ DogMan, Thanks guys I saved the links from before. Just wondering why Noe was upset that he couldn't get his batteries from FT when we have a decent supplier elsewhere.

    Because FT has other vape gear I sometimes want too, so I used to get batts & other bits for vaping at the same time. Now I need to order from 2 separate places get get what I need.
    Which means I have to Postie stalk more...

    Interesting.
    We'll probably see a few custom mods offering an 18650/20700 battery sled option initially, China may bring out a dedicated 20/700 mod version or two sometime after CNY, I predict but 18650's are still going to be king.
    With the trend to keep mods compact, adding length due to longer batteries isn't going to take off quickly, I don't think.

    Doesn't exclude the European market & you'll see retro fitting of older mods by DiY modders in the US. Custom mods in the US may also have enough room inside to offer the new sleds, even if they were pre- 8/8.
