    The perfect topper for a Vaporshark?



    IBTanked 19mm, black lids, 'Rook' drip tip. Standard-sized Victorinox Swiss Army knife for scale. Photo is larger than life on most desktop monitors.

    OK, so I opened it up again (trivial with the correct sized allen wrench) to take a quick picture:



    As you can see, this thing is pretty full. I don't think it's possible to fit a bigger battery in there.

    I have never pulled any of the components out of it. However, I've inserted additional ones. The two whiteish 'squares' at the ends of the battery are not stock. The first time I took it apart (to see if there was some way of tightening the 510 connector to the case) I noticed that the battery had a mm or two of axial play and I didn't like that; in fact I could forsee the ground side shorting against the case (probably not a big deal) or the plus side shorting against the charger board (potentially catastrophic). Yes, the soldered plus connection on the battery is taped over, but just didn't seem entirely adequate to me, and there was just enough room to insert those squares of UHMWPE tape. It makes a darn good insulator. I didn't peel the backing so it's not stuck to anything, it's just sitting in there. Now there's essentially zero axial play in the battery as well.

    Nice work. I hope they release a version 2 that can use 18350 batteries or some other quick swap option. It's not so much the battery capacity that bothers me as much as it is that I can do a quick swap. For a device of such small proportions I'm willing to accept that the mAh will be lower, but to be an all day dependable device there needs to be a battery change option or sumptin like that. I'd be afraid to leave my house with just this thing in its current state. Then again maybe it's not meant to be an all day type device.

    If you spend much time at a desk or in a vehicle, it's not a problem as an all-day device; just plug it in every once it a while; it doesn't take long to put a significant amount of charge in that battery. For me, that covers 98 or so days out of 100, 'cause I already have micro-USB cables on my desks and in my cars.

    Nonetheless, my next device (already on order) is a Protovapor. It's built much like the Vaporshark (i.e. the battery isn't easily removable) but with a 2900 mAh 18650 inside, I'm not worried about making it through a whole day away from power.

    A 2900mah would deff be enough, Rossum do you have a link for the Protovapor?

    There's a 38 page thread here:

    And of course Protovapor's website is here:

    Ya. The protovapor sounds like an all day vaping machine.

    As if `grabbing` a spheroid is such an easy thing to do? At least the KF-mini is in stock most places
