Booster question
« on: December 07, 2011, 02:52:49 AM »
Hi guys, just seen the booster on the website and had a couple questions;

As I understand it, when used with a normal Tornado Tank atty, it can make that atomiser perform like a LR Tank. Should I be expecting the same life-span out of that Atomiser as I do out of a LR? Currently I get about a week or two out of a LR before it becomes a bit grim to use. If I can use a standard atty and get a longer life out of it this might be a purchase for me.

Also, are there any battery considerations I should bear in mind?

Thanks.

Hiya Swi1ch, boosting any atty using higher voltages is going to shorten its life compared to the standard voltage....but as atties generally fade out rather than die you can extend their useful lifespan by increasing the voltage you use as they fade out. Running the booster on a battery will shorten the charge life of a battery as it is pulling more power from it.... how much by depends on how much you boost the voltage. Hope this helps.
Happy vaping.

Cheers. That's kinda what I was after, my LR's always work after a week or two but never to a level I want them to. I might try and pick one up in the yo-yo.

Lol I've been stalking the boosters since the YoYo started but had decided I would only get one @ 30% off, blimmin went for a bath early evening last night and blow me, they dropped to 33% whilst I was soaking in the tub with a book and I missed it; ahhh well back to hitting F5 every 5 mins ;)

I don't think you need to refresh the page with this Yo-Yo. It changes automatically for me and I'm on the iPhone. The counters work and all ;)

I do everything with my iPhone. Totally Wicked way of life.

I like the idea of the boosters but way to much for what you're actually getting IMO

And I missed it again, was in the kitchen doing some art work with the offspring. I swear TW have a camera in my house trained at my computer and every time I leave the PC they drop the price :P
