    Hi,
    New to modding, and thinking of building a dual 18650 VV Altoid tin mod. I'm having trouble finding dual or even single 18650 battery holders. Anyone have a link?

    Also thinking about using a smaller switch, similar to the one on the Roughstack. Again, looking for place to buy?

    Thanks

    Well most of the 18650 batt holders out there will only fit unprotected cells, so keep that in mind.

    I bought some of this style off eBay.

    Even using unprotected cells getting then in and out was a major pain, maybe the double version would be easier.

    The price of the RS/C&K would be fine, but they just don't hold up as well as other switches.

    Thanks. Found them last night and ordered a half dozen. I had been looking all over on ebay where there are hundreds of different ones. Oddly, it didn't occur to me to check the site that I bought the pre made Altoids mod I just got. Also ordered a few 510-510 adaptors with nuts for under half what Avid Vaper sells them for, and a board mount voltmeter for the awesome price of $6.66.

    I had never realized how many parts that can be used in mods are available on eBay. It's nuts.

    Well I'm gonna order some (that was fast), So the cells (protected also) snap in and out without to much muscle?

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Yes, tried my ultrafires3000mah and trustfire2400mah flames and both in and out no problem. Will order more of them and some of the single holders for the 18650's.
    Order was placed on 5/3/12 and got them today, might be a record for china :laugh:
