    For anyone interested in the GoGo cartomizer, some info on the two 510-GoGo adapters I've tried:

    First a size comparison between the DiscountVapers "510 Battery to GoGo" (left) and the "510/eGo Battery to GoGo" (right, and the one most commonly found elsewhere):



    Here's the 501/eGo to GoGo adapter disassembled. The nubs left & right are the posts, normally connected through the larger body by the wire you see. The only insulation are the small silicone gaskets you see on the nubs/pins. Two failures can occur: either the wire breaks at one of the posts and shorts to the body, or the thin silicone gaskets tear from repeated compression from the battery or cartomizer, shorting to the body.



    Here's the 510 Battery to GoGo adapter disassembled. Note the center post is solid and surrounded by the slightly denser white silicone insulator. This is more like most standard 510 shorty extenders. While it may not completely prevent a short, it is certainly less likely.



    Now a comparison of both on a GoGo cartomizer. note the "510 Battery to GoGo" adapter is shorter, thinner and has the same diameter as the cartomizer.



    The "510/eGo Battery to GoGo" adapter and GoGo cartomizer on the Darwin. Arrow points to where the thickest part of the adapter prevents closing the swing arm. Adding a shorty extender does allow closing, but the adapter body scratches the finish when closed.




    The "510 Battery to GoGo" adapter and GoGo cartomizer on the Darwin. The low profile and smaller diameter allow completely closing the swing arm to the Off position, no extender required.



    I think the "510 Battery to GoGo" adapter is going to be the much more reliable piece. I can't even imagine why the "510/eGo" version is built the way it is, but my experience is a 100% failure rate in a very short time.

    The only issue with the smaller adapter is due to its profile it can be very difficult to remove from either the cartomizer or the Darwin (whichever it remains stuck in when removing the cartomizer).

    Hopefully this will help someone out there make a good adapter choice. I wasn't a fan at first but the long vape time on the GoGo carto is definitely growing on me.

    While I was taking pictures, here are two clear shots of the new Blue screen.

    With the Darwin Off. While you can kind of make out the smaller characters here it can be difficult to make anything out at normal viewing distance.



    With the Darwin On. Personally I think this display is much nicer than the old one when the Darwin is on. It actually seems more clear than this picture indicates.

    Sorry Vapian. Didn't mean to override your blue screen pics, or GoGo adapter ones! (neither of which are provoking a jealous rage in me... yet.)

    Dear, I find your attitude verging on prudish. There is no "porn" here, only ... educational material. Nothing has been displayed that could not be vaped to in public.

    Nice screen! Thanks for the pics of the 510/510 adapters. It's definately gonna save somebody from making a mistake. Nobody wants to buy something and end up w/ a short or scratching their PV.

    Quick question - do you have to worry about overcharging the Darwin? Somebody mentioned before that you can leave it charge overnight. I babysit my 18650s when they are charging so that I don't overcharge them but was curious if I should let battery run down b4 I plug in.
