    Default 18650 Bat Holders?

    Hi,
    New to modding, and thinking of building a dual 18650 VV Altoid tin mod. I'm having trouble finding dual or even single 18650 battery holders. Anyone have a link?

    Also thinking about using a smaller switch, similar to the one on the Roughstack. Again, looking for place to buy?

    Thanks

    I've used these: BH-18650-2S-WG: JAMECO RELIAPRO: Batteries I don't know if they'll fit into a Altoids tin.I've used these as well, they are similar to the Roughstack switch: 30-3UL Grayhill Inc | GH1358-ND | DigiKeyThis is the RS switch; I think it's a bit pricey for what it is though: 8551MZQE2 C&K Components | CKN1672-ND | DigiKey

    Well most of the 18650 batt holders out there will only fit unprotected cells, so keep that in mind.

    I bought some of this style off eBay.



    Even using unprotected cells getting then in and out was a major pain, maybe the double version would be easier.

    The price of the RS/C&K would be fine, but they just don't hold up as well as other switches.

    Thanks. Found them last night and ordered a half dozen. I had been looking all over on ebay where there are hundreds of different ones. Oddly, it didn't occur to me to check the site that I bought the pre made Altoids mod I just got. Also ordered a few 510-510 adaptors with nuts for under half what Avid Vaper sells them for, and a board mount voltmeter for the awesome price of $6.66.

    I had never realized how many parts that can be used in mods are available on eBay. It's nuts.

    Thanks Meatsneakers. I ordered a few of the Grayhill switches. They look just right for what I have in mind.

    Nice find if the sell copy can be trusted.

    Those look identical to one I posted that do NOT work well well with protected and are a pain to use with any cell.
