    I take my MVP fishing and bought it for that purpose. It's a 2600 mah box if kept at 3.7 volts with a LR cartomizer it will get long battery life.
    Is that charger a one time deal? What you have planned for your setup, would last me 2 days. Hopefully you'll be to busy to vape much

    BTW really? a shoebox for all your equipment and gear. You are going much more hardcore than anyone in our group. We all use some type of military type steel reinforced military backpack or mountain back pack. I'm guessing 25-50 or shoe boxes without stuffing a bunch in there You have a telescopic fishing pole or know how to trap for food? I don't think you can hardly fit 6 days worth of dehydrated food, can-tine, portable water filtration system...not to mention any cooking equipment. In our case volume is not the issue it's how much weight you want to lug around. Then you get into the expensive titanium cooking gear etc to cut weight down as much as possible.

    You doing a survivalist type of thing?

    If you are going this hard core I'd do without vaping and look at what you need for essential survival gear. Knife, fishing line, hooks, water filtration/purification system/tablets. Handgun/ammo for hunting. Pliers, needle, cotton balls and vasoline for tinder (or at bare minimum magnesium and zinc rods), needle, thread, for possible stitching. A few antibiotic wipes. Mylar sleeping bags very very light but hold in heat very well. 1 gallon rubber water bag if you still got room maybe a small hand axe. Fishing line could be used for traps but probably want the metal wire. Not even sure the essentials could fit in their. May want to work with your buddies so you don't triple pack anything...i.e. 2 knifes, 2 axes, etc. If you're working together you shouldn't need 3 of anything but redundancy is a good thing.

    A Shoebox...just flabbergasted when I re-read this thread and saw that. If that is seriously all you got you got much higher concerns than vaping. Even most common bug-out bags meant to last 4 days to a week are in a school sized book bag and weight 25 lbs or so. If you are seriously going for 6 day trip with nothing but contents in a shoebox I highly recommend rethinking what the priorities are.

    I'm very curious about this trip as friends and I have never attempted anything so adventurous/dangerous. Have you ever done anything remotely close to this...I'm just curious if you know what you are getting yourself into. And definitely not trying to discourage you just making sure you know what you're getting yourself into.

    I even forgot compass/map. Mirror for signaling. You can probably do without mirror if you got the mylar bags. The list just goes on

    If you got bug-out bag that can fit in shoe-box for 6 day wilderness trip I'd really really like to know what you got in there and what buddies are carrying for duplicates.

    In fairness a lot of that dehydrated food can be cooked in the bag by just adding boiling water. You either need fireproof can-tine (no plastic/rubber again titanium is light) or you need to find a plastic bottle to boil water in. You may or may not find that depending on where you are hiking. So you might be able to get 6 days of bare essentials in shoe box with just those 2 items...but I wouldn't put my life on the line with just those 2 items.

    Im going on a hunting trip next month. Gonna bring my 3 1100 mah batteries charged and my car charger. For juice Im gonna bring 30ml of one of my favorites and 4 Kanger evods. First time hunting without cigarettes so it is a work in progress to see how it goes.

    Hunting trip with cars in site is a completely different story than only surviving on contents in shoe-box for x amount of days. I think we need clarification from LeftHandBlack as to what this trip is really about. I'm curious because I kind of want to go along I just would want at least a school book bag sized backpack before attempting. Haven't hunted without real cigs but deer season is coming up here shortly. I think I can get by with 2 1000mah batteries as long as one is charging in the car. Maybe have 2 on me for backup and 1 in car charging.

    Wow, are you going to be hunting/fishing/scrounging for food? I would be very hard pressed to make a survival kit that small if it needs to include food (not even sure i could make a week of food that small, lots of pemican i guess). At that point I wouldn't even be thinking about vaping. Good luck!

    Cool plan.
    The missing spec is your personal depletion of the Mah. That's going to vary based on everything from your coils to your vape style...
    Previous post mentioned it, but looks like you are "cutting it close" with both battery storage and juice.
    Might be fun to test out a solar thing - fabric style, outside your pack, charging one of the storage devices while you hike - that'd be cool.

    Absolutely grandmato5 hit it perfectly! You've got a month to 1)get your gear=vapemail 2)sort out 6-7 days worth of gear+ +_YES allow for the possible accident to happen with atleast 1 extra days worth of supply 3)give it a sincere/honest 6-7 day try out. Take notes, figure what could happen, and practice uneven surfaces and simulated packing endurance for the perishables. dont forget any other factors if needed like "dry bags' if near water..so forth. All the best! I'd love to see your final solutions, so others could benefit from your valuable experiences.

    I was searching for something like that for 4 hours one night and stubbled upon it today. That could be used to directly connect to your tank/clearomizer directly to those bigger "instant" chargers, power banks. Depending on type of terrain you may only be able to vape on breaks and at camp fire.

    At any rate that could turn pretty much any external power bank into a mod. No idea what volts it would run at. I assume 5 V for the power banks you and I listed. Both say Output: DC - 5V .

    You might want to get holster as I need two hands on steep terrain.
    The power banks only put out 1a sp this wouldn't work with what he ordered
