    Hi all, I am new here, but I have a pressing issue. Last weekend I dropped my Alien mod and put the batteries back in the wrong way (there was a lot of beer involved) and when I returned to sobriety my batteries are dead, even on a tester they are showing 0. Sooo, I fucked up, obviously, but I have a few questions. Can my batteries be brought back to life with a boost charger? and also, my hubby seems to think it's okay to use used laptop batteries for now, and I'm really nervous about this. They have about 25% charge in them and well, I just don't like the idea of it. I love my mod, I'd hate to kill it over this, not to mention there might be some safety issues. Any advice is welcome.

    It is NOT safe to use your laptop batteries in your mod.
    If you have to ask if your batteries are safe, they are not safe.
    It is always better to replace them rather than take a chance with them.
    As low as the price is on batteries now days it just isn't worth risking, just replace them.

    In addition, there are about 19 other threads with this same question, at least one of them will more than likely have more detailed answers if you are after that.
    One example is:

    Especially since good quality batteries are not all that expensive!
