    Default Question for you

    Sir Lawrence....
    I would like to know if I were to order a custom color LS could you leave a patch or line of unpainted metal down the backside (opposite the switch) so I could have the custom color and complete the circuit by touching anywhere on the back that I wanted
    Thanks
    Bob

    I could do that, but do you think that would look good? I could also do a small round or square patch just opposite the touch sensor. If you use metal drip tips, you don't need to touch any cap since your lips do when you vape, you just touch the sensor and the tip with your lips... pretty cool.

    To tell you the truth, I'm not sure. I know that anodizing usually stops electrical current, but I'm not sure how long they anodize the tips. I would go onto our main thread, or the experts section and put out that question. I just use regular metal shiny tips, and they work great...

    You also have to remember, from the sensor to the top cap is only 15mm. You could extend your "touch" finger or thumb to make the connection with both at the same time.

    I hold my Saber like I would hold a very small flashlight, my fingers cradled against it resting in my palm. In that position, it is perfectly lined up to use my thumb to activate the switch.

    The bottom cap is touching my palm and my pinky finger, and I have small hands. Don't have to think about having to touch my Saber anywhere for it to work just holding it naturally.

    Hey Sir, with the dripper tips, does the o-ring not prevent contact?

    I don't think so... the top of the atty usually touch metal somewhere on the drip tip. Everyone seems to be using this method really well!

    Ive used a metal drip tip on my saber 5v (black powdercoat), and its true you dont have to make contact with the brass endcaps. BUT I don't think it's anywhere near as strong of a hit than if you were to make contact with an endcap. I use the plastic tips from cov and love it

    I just got a metal drip tip in the mail today and tried it. I think mine is the same hit, either way.

    My hubby stole my Purple ST and is using cartos on them still sucking on it like it is a 510 battery. I told him to try a drip tip and regular atty, because he is going to be sucking burned filler the way he is using it. He liked that alot. Then he said SL should make the contact in the mouthpiece so that you dont have to touch anything LOL. I guess it is a good idea but I don't know how that would be accomplished.
