[QUOTE=bmwjen;5381980]Apparently there is a vent hole on the under side of the switch.........I've taken the top off as instructed, blown in it & it's airtight. My husband also tested it & it's airtight. Neither of us is noticing ANY sort of vent holes on the under side of the switch. I encourage ALL of you SB owners to take the top off the SB & try blowing in it........if it's airtight.......then there really is NOWHERE for that battery to blow. (I do notice there is a hole in the black area before you reach the switch......but this will NOT allow any battery to vent.) My husband is currently drilling 4 vent holes near the bottom of the SB so that if something happens the ventilation will be equal in all directions. Please check your mods.[/QUOTE]

    If you stack two batteries in it you'll need more than that - three milled slots are needed. But for single battery use, with a sensible battery, some holes will be fine.

    A single battery mod is unlikely to blow unless you are really unlucky or do something stupid (we haven't heard of a 1-cell mod blowing yet). If it did, be aware that gas vent holes are a warning not a protection. You see and hear the gas venting, and maybe your hand gets burnt, so you drop it. Then it goes bang. A few holes are nowhere near enough to vent the gas produced.

    But anyway this is not a concern using 1 batt. If you are stacking batteries in there, then get 3 slots milled in the body, 50mm x 4mm. Stacking batts in the SB is against the maker's recommendation for a reason. The reason is, if something were by chance to go badly wrong, there is nothing to stop it going bang. Use 1 cell only, or do a proper machine shop job on it.
