Using the item number listed on the pictures provided for that LDO will result in find 1amp, 2amp, 3amp and 4amp LDO's which means it's not enough information to know one way or the other exactly what is being used.

In other words the TI will still be producing 5V till the batts drop below 5.45V.

The item number for that LDO (378R05) will result in a 3 amp..... it is a 3 amp used in this mod. But, we cannot find where to purchase these and are wondering if they are no longer being manufactured.

Thanks for the advice. It's appreciated. If I can find somewhere to purchase one of these I'll let you know. IMO a juice box seems to cut down on some of the "maintenance" of vaping (filling cartridges, keeping the bridge wet, etc). It's where I'm going.
