    A funny story about a prodigy..............My brother decided that he would try and get a used one to save some money. He bought one from someone here on the ECF for 60 dollars. It is a V3.0 instead of a V3.1. He is in NY and I am in TN so I was not able to look at it right away but he said he was having a hard time with it and that it did not work well. So just a couple of days ago he sent it to me in the mail.

    The idiot who owned it before my brother did some modifications to it. Obviously that person had no clue what they were doing.

    What I found was the post in the center of the connector cap was pushed down over an 1/8" from where it was supposed to be, the mod was absolutely filthy, and there was a hex cap screw in the switch end instead of a flat head brass screw, which I believe is normal for the V3.0, but someone had ground the end of the screw and it looked like a train wreck.

    I took it to work (as I work in a machine shop) and took it apart. I cleaned it really good and replaced the plastic piece and screw on the switch end with a flat head brass screw and a new spring holder plastic piece. I also pressed the center post in the connector cap back into it's proper position. I then put 2 freshly charged Tenergy LifePo4 batteries in it and it now vapes like a champ.

    I vaped on that baby all day Saturday and still am vaping on it today without failure.

    The moral of the story - Sometimes trying to save $25 will cost you more crap than it is worth. The prodigy is a very well built mod and is priced very reasonably. If you know someone who wants one, just tell them to buy it new.

    P.S. And for heaven's sake, if you have a problem with your prodigy, let the fine folks at puresmoker.com know about it so they can help solve the problem. Do not try to modify your prodigy as you will more than likely make any small problem you are having into a much bigger problem.

    I would love a big battery 6 volt mod! Of course I am still waiting to see bigger LifePo4 batteries too! If they had 18650 LifePo4 batteries I would build a mod to hold 2 of these in series! That would kick butt!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love Puresmoker and they are so great to work with! When I first started vaping, I went to their distribution center and they were so helpful and friendly! Just giving them a big shout out! I'm actually in the running to win their new Prodigy4. They are renaming it and had people submit new names on their forum and they have picked two of mine to be voted on! I hope I win! Not only do I get a free one but it will be MY name forever! How cool would that be?! I need more votes though for "The General" and/or "The Legend"

    I had an ICON v1.1 use with 1.5 ohm attys that I absolutely love.... One day my wife may give it back. I have a Prodigy 3.1 that I vape at 6 volt with 2.5 ohm IO6's. Absolutely love them and love knowing they will never fail me. Also have a Bud 510 from PureSmoker that I won at a vape meet And I love it as well. They make great products. I am looking forward to the next versions.

    Chiming in as a Prodigy and Icon user. After starting with the cheap stuff that didn't do much for me, I looked around for an American-made tank that could survive my lack of tech savvy, and I bought the Prodigy V1. My passthrough got the most use until it died, and I worked the V1 into an early grave. At that point, the V3 was out and I got one. I liked that so much that I picked up an Icon a few weeks later. I've only ever used 801s for vaping, and it all seems to work well, and simply.
    Depending on what juice I'm dripping, I switch back and forth between the two PVs, and don't feel any urgency to buy new mods, however attractive.
    For me, the Prodigy and the Icon are like the Willys Jeeps of the PV world. There are Cadillacs and Ferraris and even Yugos out there, but for solid dependability, Puresmoker gives me security with minimal concerns.
    Maybe one day I'll get fancy, but not today.

    This would have been varied by using 2 rcr123 3.0 volt LiFePO4 batteries instead of 1 3.7 volt AW Lithium ICR battery. The stacked battery option is less favored now due to concerns with stacked batteries in a metal tube.

    If this option is pursued, please remember:
    1. This option is no longer within the recommendations of the manufacter
    2. Always check each battery with a multimeter prior to vaping
    3. Always check each battery after the initial vape from stacked batteries
    4. Only use LiFePO4 or AW IMR batteries with a high enough C rating
    5. Only use a 3.0 volt charger NOT a 3.7 volt charger.
    6. If in doubt, toss the batteries.
    7. Keep your batteries in a pair, don't mix up the pairs
    8. Alternate the top/bottem combination of each pair.
    9. Use a standard resistance atomizer/cartomizer or higher for high volt vaping.

    All of this was too much for me to keep up with, so I switched back to 3.7 vaping. Other options exist now for high volt vaping that don't involve stacked batteries. Puresmoker now has the Legacy with the removable kick from evolv. This too can mimic high voltage vaping. However, YMMV.
