    Anyone found a source of decent high quality battery wraps? The reason I ask is because all the wraps I have managed to source so far are crap... they are too thick and if you have decent mods with tight tolerances the rewrapped batteries don't fit. And let's not even talk about the standard Tesiyi batteries because those don't even fit brand new!

    Which ones have you tried Rob?

    I have a pile of the VK ones, but all my mods have loads of room so I can't say for sure if they are too thick or not. And I definitely don't have the memory to remember if they felt thick when I wrapped them.

    Tried all the ones available and of course all kak from Fasttech... Super Hero ones as well... Kelsey's boyfriend left back to JHB today with extra batteries because he has a mod that a handles fat batteries...

    Rob, the nice thing about the Reo is that it can handle fat batteries ;-)
    And so too with the Abalone Hotcig 150 and the Sig 100 Plus

    It's only the latest HE mods that are fussy....
    hehe

    Hi @Rob Fisher . I bought mine from Fasttech. When you say "of course all kak from Fasttech" do you mean that they are dangerous in some way (i.e. low quality) if so please let me know as I never take chances with battery safety.

    I don't think you have to worry about that, just keep on checking that there are no visible tears. He probably just means that they aren't the ones he is looking for (rarely is when shopping from Fasttech).

    Rob I bought wraps from FT and re-wrapped batteries & they fit perfectly into my Ohmsium. Possibly just the way yours is, not all exactly the same.

    Nope they quite fine @Puff the Magic Dragon... by KAK I mean the plastic is a little thicker than normal wraps on batteries... but they are just fine for most mods... I just have a few thank have tight fitting battery sleeves and once rewrapped the batteries don't fit.

    @Rob Fisher the coilmaster wraps work fine in my ohmsmium.
    Sureheros were a no go in the mod.

    @Rob Fisher

    Do you wrap over the existing wrap or remove old wraps and then wrap with the new ones?

    Just asking.

    Always take the old wrap off and wrap onto bare battery...

    R250 for 10 wraps of the fancy ones... I think not... I'll use the few rewraps I have left in my mods that don't have an issue...

    That all depends on how many times the words "High End" are used in the youtube review video. If it is in every second sentence and the presenter reminds you of a second hand car or insurance salesman, you can be sure its the real deal!

    @Rob Fisher, I bought about 60wraps from @KieranD a while back. Used about 3 so far. The transparent wraps are thinner than the other wraps but no issues from me so far.

    Perhaps the wraps brought in are a few microns thicker than others. Interesting thread though as I find the rewraps I have are a far better wrap than the original but I only have the 57 odd wraps left to compare.

    They come in a pack of 10 mixed wraps. I.e 5 different wraps x 2.
    Perhaps see if you can't arrange 5x2 clear wraps as I got about 4x2 sets of transparent wraps in my bulk purchase.
