Here is some good basic info on the OKR to start with.
Hope you find it helpful.
Easy OKR-T VV mod
Maybe we oughta just video tape this, play it back in slow motion.
Fire it up! Fire it up! Fire it up!
Thanks, I was looking at that earlier today and it was definitely helpful.

Awesome. Between the last those two threads I think I've got all the info I need. Sometimes the "search" brings up so much stuff I get side-tracked reading other things haha Thanks everyone

This is a plug and play model... I have 2 and they work very well... you can add an led, volt display, good button, battery tray, and box to house it all, and you're done! oh yeah, a 510 cart connection...
Model Dimension Engineering DESWADJ3
And, I just rec'd these as samples from TI... I believe they'll be a good answer as well...
PTR08100W - 10-A, 4.5V-14V Input, Non-Isolated, Wide Output, Adjustable Power Module
PTR08060W - 6-A, 4.5V to 14V Input, Non-Isolated, Wide Output, Adjustable Power Module
They only took a few days to get here after I ordered them... Steeljan has a youtube showing exactly how to build with them as well..
Honestly, don't buy a prebuilt box mod... I have and wish I hadn't.. 'You' can control the quality better, and use the best components (box, button, etc), and not be disappointed with the high cost the prebuilts bring with them. Not going to expand on that... But, it's true...
There are tons of component diagrams and suggestions in here and if you have ANY soldering skills, it'll be a no brainer.. A dremel with a cutting wheel and a 'burr' are helpful as well. It's too DAMN easy to ignore the DIY.
BTW, Dealextreme has 18650 2 battery trays... Thats my next step! But, with the Model Dimension Engineering Module, with 2ea 14500 900mahs, I'm getting OVER a day of pretty constant vaping.. With the cheap linear's, like MV offers, I get about half of that.... and they GET hot.. These Model dimensions ones, no noticeable heat.... Haven't tripped out yet either... for the $23, they are a no brainer...
The "plug and play model" that you listed: "AnyVolt Micro is a miniature step-up / step-down switching DC-DC converter. The output is adjustable from 2.6V to 14V and currents up to 0.5A can be drawn." I don't really need 14-, but I sure need more than half an amp! I appreciate the suggestions anyways. I've decided on the OKR-T/6 and I think it will suit my purpose very well.
You need to SCROLL DOWN that page to the DESDWADJ3 '25Watt Step Down, 3A'... but, it really doesn't matter.. either works great.. good luck...
This is the SWADJ3. They are very nice and work well, but are a bit expensive. I prefer the OKR.
Yup, I agree... I listed the RC Hobby link primarily due to be a slight amount less expensive than from the Mfg site.. installation is really small and clean... I will probably secure a couple of OKR's just to tinker with.. I'm quickly finding there are a LOT of great DIY choices.. I only mention the SWADJ3 due to ease of wiring. There almost is nothing to do to employ it. And, it WORKS very well. The worm screw pot and everything is integrated... Not as easy to adjust on the fly I suppose... There's always something wrong with everything.......
I like it though!
