    Default Best mod using 14500 or 16340 batteries?

    Reason why I ask is I have a bunch of AW IMR 14500's and 16340's right now that I use on a 5V box mod (similar to the 5V Ken's Box Mod) and my VV Ali'i. I'm looking to get something that will utilize either one of these batteries. I barely touch my eGo since I got these mods. I primarily drip with the box mod at work and at home and the Ali'i while driving and love em both. But I want something that's a bit more "elegant" than the eGo and obviously with 3.7V or higher. Some things that I'm looking for with the next mod:

    - 3.7V or higher, 5V would be ideal, VV would be bonus
    - 510 native connection
    - preferable sub $100
    - must have amazing track record, ie. positive reviews
    - "pocket" safe ie. won't fire with the atty on it in a pocket
    - preferably smaller like the size of a eGo (I understand diameter will be slightly more due to battery)
    - needs to be "simple" don't want crazy maintenance and or spacers or anything needed for my batteries etc...


    I've been eying a few such as the precious, icon and P16. I'd take the P16 and icon but it's a bit more than what I'd want to spend and the buttons are on the bottom. I think I prefer the button to be at the "top".

    Lastly, I understand "best" is subjective, and it's different for everyone but I'm open to suggestions! Thanks!

    just a note about the bottom buttons...
    honestly I was worried about them at first.. but after about 3 days of using it they become so natural feeling it's silly...
    if you have an eGo laying around ( or even a marker) try this...
    rest the end of the eGo on your pinky knuckle closest to the palm...gently wrap your fingers over it the index finger up along the cone....thumb on the button pointing upward...
    now just kinda squeeze your hand almost like you were ging to make a fist, or flexing your fingers, squeezing a stress ball, etc...
    see how the index finger and thumb just sort of pull the PV down against the pinky..
    that's all the action that a bottom button needs..
    after using one for a short while it feels natural... and top buttons start to feel wierd...lol

    I get the price thing though... me I'd vote for the p16...because it is all mechanical, all stainless and has that lifetime warranty...guess that's why I'm saving for a p18 and an ali'i

    Jimi thanks for the link

    Drozd, good point, I see what you mean... never thought of really trying that... so used to the top button on the eGo or Ali'i and the side button I press with my thumb on the box mod that I'm thinking the bottom button will be weird... guess I should really try a P16 from someone before really deciding... I don't doubt the quality of Super T's stuff... I'm actually waiting for his VV box mod to come out as well... but in the meantime I want something a little less "bulky" then a box mod for my dripping purposes... I may invest in the P16 unless there is something that is comparable in quality for less... I understand I do get what I paid for though...

    btw you'll love the Ali'i, I love mine

    Have you considered the new Infinity from NotCigs? With an extension you can use your 14500's. It's VV, looks "elegant" and I think it's under $80.

    It's longer than an eGo though.

    is the infinity wide enough for a 14500?

    not as small as an EGO but next to the Silver Bullet the BB doesn't look that much bigger(comparing both,one in the photo and the other on front of me now) 84.99, great reviews, simple and I've never had the SB fire in my pocket so I don't think this would either. Oh yeah, it's made for 510. The EGO I'm looking at is a XL 900 mAh.

    The base model of the Infinity uses 14430's. There is an extension available for 14500's.
