    i will put together a tut tonight
    Somehow I *knew* it would be LOL...bypassing *everything* but the battery whould allow one to run that bad boy on 3.7 longer term that it'd survive @5v of course...now i gotta find me one.

    Does it say the mah rating of the battery? That is sweet.

    Also on the "Needs 1 amp!" stuff, I am currently vaping on a homemade passthrough off my computer, and if it's only putting out 500ma, that is PLENTY!

    It really isn't. Either your computer is supplying the amperage demanded or the vape is pretty weak.

    At 5v typical current requirements are:

    901 - 1.67 amps
    801 - 1.42 amps
    410 - 1.85 amps
    510 - 2.17 amps

    When the power source cannot meet the current demand, voltage drops when put under load. It's why a typical PT is quite weak compared to a 2 bat mod.

    how to make a mini USB pass through with battery and built in charger.

    things u need
    soldering iron
    wire
    drill /drill bits to fit your switch / atty connector
    epoxy
    switch
    atty connector
    and the most important part the digipower i got mine at radio shack for 12.99 i think.

    not gonna go into hoe to make a atty connector there's a few how to's here already.

    now that you have a digipower you need to pop the case apart. i take a small screw driver and pry at it a little.



    it comes apart in 4 pieces don't lose the little black button



    then i ling up the switch for hole drilling in the lid you'll probably have to modify the case a tad to get the lid to close with the switch.






    this is the case mod i had to do

    then with the switch in place find out where to drill the hole for the atty connector.





    lock them both in place with the nuts



    now take off the male mini usb port





    then solder on 2 wires to the 2 out side lines ( the right one is ground so you can solder that strait to ground on the board or on the battery)



    now assemble the case and the lid with all the new parts





    i solder one lead of the switch right to my atty connector.



    hook up wires make sure every thing fits right if you have a multimeter test for operation and voltage. fill with epoxy and vape away.

    this explains a few things:
    Why 801 seems to work better at higher voltage
    why 510 tastes like burnt monkey butt at high voltage
    why i no longer use > 3.7v batts in mods... I might make one for someone else, but prefer not to use ubervoltage myself...starts tastin like dung
