Customer Reviews for the V3i Auto 180mAh Batteries (65mm)

  • Brilliant product - bring back the Silver ones - by Adam, 10 November 2020
    5
    The auto-batteries are a bit idiosyncratic (some work brilliantly for ages, most work fine for months, occasional duds). They all definitely benefit from being looked after - cleaning out the ventilation holes, clearing residue from the space around the inner terminal, keeping the inside free of any e-liquid, (and not dropping them into the Mediterranean on the way back from dinner in Port d'Andratx).

    It just so happens that the ones that worked best and longest for me were always the silver ones which also look great with the Series-C mini-tanks- far and away the best-looking cigalike on the market (maybe I looked after them better because they looked so cool).

    PLEASE BRING BACK THE SILVER V3i BATTERIES (when you are doing your re-design).
  • 5 years without smoking thanks to these and the v4 tanks - by RuManChu, 10 October 2020
    4
    No wheezing or being red-faced at the top of stairs. Brilliant, convenient product. No interest in anything else.

    I appreciate the difficulties supplying what I guess must be a niche product, sourcing parts and keeping cost down and so on. I would still love to see the return of the longer auto batteries, and the portable charger pack. Better yet, mark ii versions of the whole kit, especially the USB chargers where I'd rather pay more for one durable charger, than have to order multiples of the current one.......JAC: Thank you for the review, we are currently working on some more modern alternatives with these and will test with users when we have finalised products, the new products will have better batteries and chargers, but also retain the simple reliable nature of the V3i. As one of our regular customers we will keep you informed when we have units to test.
  • Used to be great, current reviews are making me unsure - by Richard, 29 September 2020
    4
    I've been using these batteries for around 5 yrs and have got through 4 along with the original charging case, so a pretty decent product.

    The last battery is just falling apart after maybe 3yrs of use, and generally lasted a day or one full cartomiser between charges.

    I'm now looking at a replacement and have noticed that the batteries now last for 2hrs, so am assuming I will need to buy 3 or 4 to last me a day?? I can get maybe 4 full charges from my case and you don't seem to sell them anymore so it sounds like I need to spend £40 just to have enough batteries to last me a day and from other comments, the batteries need replacing every couple of months - is that right??

    It doesn't sound like a cost effective alternative to smoking anymore - I don't want a large tank with buttons to press; I want a hands free option..................JAC Vapour Ltd: The batteries are the same as the ones you have, it's the same product, the V3i are an old device we still supply for existing customers like yourself that still use them. They have not been updated in around 5 years, so if you get 24hrs out of a 65mm auto battery currently you will still get the same from the same battery.
  • Unhappy + 1 - by David, 20 August 2019

    I agree with lisag, 13 August 2019. I'm also disappointed by the recent shortage of my favourite liquid, Real Tobacco Silver. I've been a customer for several years and feel a bit let down, but I won't abandon JAC just yet! The service is excellent. To compensate for the shortage of auto V3i batteries I decided to buy an S17 pen , which I swore I would never do, and although manual it is much better than a manual V3i. It is however HUGE by comparison and my friends and family are bemused by it. V3i is so discreet and provides just as good a vape (provided you regularly change the coil). The problem with V3i is charging. I need two or three V3is to last a day and as JAC no longer supply a portable charging case, I have decided my vaping future is to balance use of the S17 and V3i depending on how discreet I need to be. Please do not abandon the auto V3i..................JAC: Thank you for the support and patience, the auto V3i should be with us soon they are enroute at the moment and just landed in customs, so I would hope they are with us first part of next week. If you wish a small device that has a big battery, then the box styles are more compact, for instance the wee VIM is the same spec battery as the s17, also uses the same coils, but it is more compact in that it's about the size of a slightly thicker zippo lighter, with a device like that it can be completely concealed within the palm of your hand.

    the auto battery has been out of stock for months............ I keep being told they will be in stock shortly. the manual ones are not as good, actually rubbish so this is quite frustrating. I wish they would be honest and say they are discontinuing this product so i can shop for another brand. I am finding that products are regularly out of stock, so be warned before considering this brand............................JAC Vapour: We are not discontinuing the product, it has unfortunately been hard to source the original switch we used for the auto version, this has meant delays, they shipped from the production line yesterday, so we normally allow 10 days to arrive, but they could be sooner, the fastest they can arrive is 5 days and the slowest is 14. I apologise for the long wait.
  • Rubbish - by Millie, 12 April 2019

    Last battery I recieved didnt even last more then 2 months not long lasting and just rubbish to be honest far from pleased half the time it wouldn't even fire up save your money......................JAC: Please contact customer service if you have had an issue with the battery, as they are covered by a 4 month warranty, so it can be replaced for free, if for some reason it has failed.
  • Great value for money - by Sheree, 19 September 2018
    5
    Not sure why there are so many low star reviews. The description clearly states the batteries only give approximately 2hrs of vaping between charges and my recent purchase of 2 x black, 2 x white and 2 x silver do give me approx 2hrs. I would have preferred the older and longer version of v31, however these are certainly better than nothing and much cheaper than other brands out there. Obviously I have yet to discover their total longevity, but my previous longer length versions lasted much, much longer than the expected few months. Hopefully these will be the same. So, so far so good. I do however one minor technical problem in so much as the no longer available VIP+ case will only charge 3 out of the recent 6 i bought. So for that reason only I would normally knock off a start, however they are such good value for money I have to give back tgdt star. So all in all they definitely deserve 5 stars
  • Run out very quickly - by J, 5 July 2018
    1
    I have been using these for around two years, recently i have nothing but trouble with them. The charge seems to run out quicker but also the quality of the battery diminishes quicker than it used to. They seem to last 4-6 wks. I am fed up of contacting customer services and getting into email "tennis" to get recourse, i am far too busy to do this every time. I dont even vape at work, so its not overuse. Shall be looking for another supplier. as i do not want to use a mod or a larger tank. Disappointed...…………..JAC Vapour Ltd: Hi I have looked at the CS threads and the only thing we can do at present, is send you out some more replacement batteries and a pack of tanks, then we need to get your one of the units (battery and tank) sent back free post to test it. I understand you are busy and don't want a whole bunch of questions, so this will be the quickest way to figure out what the issue is. Customer service will send an email confirming this, and we'll see if we can figure it out, I apologise for the issues you are having with the manual batteries.
  • Very poor battery power - by Fabio, 11 June 2018
    1
    I bought some batteries recently, series how many puffs before the battery is flat? Very disappointed, I am moving to a proper gadget and will not be seen again as a customer of Jac Vapour...………………...JAC Vapour Ltd: the V3i is a small battery at 180mah, that's the trade off for the tiny size, if you are looking for a bigger battery, we have the S17 at 900mah, s22 at 2600mah, the Tilt at upto 3000mah, the VIM at 2600mah, all offer compact form factors with big batteries. If you are within 2 weeks you can return the batteries and give another style of kit a go, but it sounds like you are looking for something bigger than a cigalike. Thanks for the review.
  • Primitive but perfect. - by Hugh, 27 May 2018

    These batteries coupled with a series C tank are my first and last love of the vaping world. In my pocket to you will always find two batteries with two different flavours in the tanks and a spare charged battery. Hides in the palm for sly toking when nobody's looking. No-one looks cool with a box or a truncheon.
