@eeterrific Yes. I do not drink wine. But, those friends that do are perfectly capable of finishing a bottle in a sitting. More realistic situation, trying to convince them they do not need to open another.
Correct me if I am wrong but you guys have a wine site now right? You sent me an email wanting me to help fund it and stuff. I love meh.com love what you guys do but I hate alcohol and everything relating to alcohol so can I kindly ask you keep this type of crap on that site and off of here. Thanks.
@TuffGong Another DOA I guess. Tried different batteries that tested fully charged. Only tested in the last meh bottle which was a screw top. Could that be the issue? Is there a way to know if these things work?
Went onto Vestia site. It doesn’t look like anything is being maintained… the YT video is “unavailable”! I tried calling 888-629-2525 and it just rings and rings.
@fjp999@TuffGong the problem is with the springs at the bottom. Depending on the battery type it doesn’t contact metal on metal. Had this problem with enelops. Fixed this with a small piece of tin foil on the + side of the left battery (downward facing). Try it
@kemper45@TuffGong DOA no more. Had my Aldi shopping trip so got AAA from them and now working as advertised. I wasn’t using enelops but Panasonics that came with an old phone… will have to try other brands of rechargeables (or the tin foil trick).
I thought this would be a great accessory to go along with the wine membership the wife has. Tested a bottle last night and was impressed; it does a complete seal, no leakage, so we can place the leftovers in the wine-fridge thingy, and yes, the wine bottles in there lay flat, so sealing any potential leakage is an important factor.
I’ll also parrot the person who asked “How do you know it’s done?” There is no timer that I can tell with the device; as long as you press down, it’s trying to take the air out of the bottle. I figured 10-15 seconds is probably good, but didn’t see anything in the instructions that talked about this.
@kevnad1966 Maybe mine just sucks. I previously tried it for up to two minutes and when I went to open the bottle there was no vacuum. Recently I decided to grit my teeth and just let it run as long as it wanted (or until the batteries died). After about 6.5 minutes it finally stopped and this time when I pushed the release-vacuum-button it actually made a “pft” noise.
