Would someone be able to give me some pointers on my new Hog please?
I just received vv #77 in the mail and it's pretty stinking gorgeous. Since I've never owned one before I'm pretty clueless on how to use it.
Ist question: How do you fill it? Never mind, I figured out how to pop the top off the bottle.
2nd question: Or maybe really the only question since I figured out #1, How do you adjust the voltage?
Gonna need a little more of a description than just "vv #77".
EDIT ok now that I see you titled your post to include the requested info, unfortunately I cannot help you. However I'm sure someone will be along shortly who can. My bad.

Reason: Im stupid
There should be a little round plastic piece on the vv electronic with a cross-shaped indention. I've never had a vv Hog, so I don't know the particulars of the chip Mike uses, but the dial/screw/knobs on them are usually blue or white. Use a "precision" phillips screwdriver to turn the dial--counterclockwise will lower the voltage and clockwise will raise it.
If there's a voltage display you will be able to tell where you'reat/going with it, otherwise you'll either need to get a display that screws into the atty connector or do it "by feel"...
Still lost here. The only place I see to put a small screwdriver is at the top of the mod. And that looks like it's holding a wire onto the firing button.
When you take the door off and look at the inside, where the battery and the bottle go, there should be a little Printed Circuit Board with some electronics on it. One of the things soldered on that PCB will be the adjuster. Since I can't see the mod, I can't do better than vague descriptions
I did just look at a vv mod I've made, and the board I used has a very tiny brass screw that's used to adjust it, so you'll really just have to look for anything that you could use a miniature screwdriver on somewhere in the electronics.
Or take a picture of the board and post it
The electronics are on the bottom. The blue box looks to me to be the most likely candidate for being the potentiometer, so look for a small hole through the wood in the bottom or the side of the mod that would lead to that blue box. Also, that kind of adjuster will be small enough that it will take a slotted/flathead screwdriver rather than a cross/phillips.
Glad you found it--time to have fun!
