eGo-C Twist Battery Review
Look / Feel8.5
Update: I would highly suggest trying out the Vision Spinner 1300 mAh if you’re looking for this type of battery. It’s basically the same product as the eGo-C Twist, but with a better “Twist” part. It fits all the same accessories, including any eGo charger.
The eGo-C Twist battery is a relatively new product that was designed to work with all existing eGostyle products available from JoyeTech. These include the eGo, eGo-T, and eGo-C. The backwards compatibility is a really nice selling point when it comes to the eGo-C Twist battery.
Quite possibly my favorite feature of the eGo-C Twist is its variable voltage ability. Yes, finally an eGo battery that is capable of varying voltages. These batteries have a voltage range of 3.2 – 4.8, which increases in 0.2V increments. The voltages are controlled by the end cap, which you twist to change between different voltages.
The eGo-C Twist Battery features the famous eGo-T/eGo-C 5-click locking mechanism. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this feature, I will explain. When the fire button is pressed 5 times in rapid succession, the LED will blink indicating that the device is now locked. If the fire button is pressed at this point, nothing will happen. To unlock the battery, simply press the fire button again quickly 5 times. This is a really nice feature. It allows you to carry around your PV in your pocket or purse without having to worry about burning out an atomizer or burning yourself from the fire button accidentally being pressed down.
eGo-C Twist batteries are available in both 650 mAh and 1000 mAh. There are also a few choices of colors available to choose from, including Black, Blue, Green, Pink, Purple, Red, and Stainless Steel.
If you are used to a regular eGo 650 mAh or 1000 mAh battery you will notice that the eGo-C Twist Battery is slightly larger. This is due to the fact that it has to house the components to allow it to be variable voltage. The eGo-C Twist 1000 mAh battery measures roughly 4.75″. The eGo-C Twist 650 mAh battery measures roughly 3.75″.
I’m a huge fan of the eGo-C Twist battery already. At less than $30, this variable voltage battery is a steal. You’ll undergo a whole new experience from your eGo device from being able to dial in the exact voltage that works best for your particular e-liquid.
You can pick up your own from AltSmoke. Altsmoke carries both the 650 mAh and 1000 mAh versions in your choice of one of 7 colors. Try one out today and see what you have been missing.
