    Re: Introducing the Easy Vap Pro

    with research, it's looking like the usage of the battery for the EasyVap would specify using a deep cycle battery.

    Re: Introducing the Easy Vap Pro

    Would this be a 'Starter' car battery, or a deep cycle battery? I won't have more that 10 or 12 hives to do (famous last words).
