    Someone else asked about right and left hands. This is in the same vein, just because I'm curious. :laugh:

    I have two mods with bottom buttons. Personally, I press the button with the tip of my ring finger. But I've seen people do it other ways, such as with the side of a finger.

    If you have a bottom button, how do you press it?

    I don't think I'd want a bottom button vape.

    Good luck trying to hold an 18650 Nzonic with a Kayfun... and press the button with your middle finger knuckle. I might as well "pull a buzzz". [​IMG]

    I use the palm of my hand just below the first and second fingers. But I have big hands so I don't know if this works for everyone, but it's very comfortable for me. Just pull the mod down so that the button gets triggered when you do. If your hands are smaller you could use the bottom of your palm I guess and it would do the same thing.

    I use a K100 which has quite a strong switch spring. I tried using my little finger on it and practically dislocated it after a few hours. Now I do it this way:

    With a AGA-T on it and a 18650 in it it's not light either. Any finger is much stronger than the little finger. I'm so used to this now it's like I've been vaping this way all my life.

    Actually, the EVOD was purchased during a battery emergency and is only currently used to burn coils...lol Oh, and for backup should all the other devices break at once.

    My hands are super tiny. I wear a size 3.5 ring. My hands are skeleton hands covered with flesh. I was always wary of bottom button mods. I tried to use a few using my finger. Didnt work. One day someone showed me the knuckle fire trick and its been smooth sailing ever since. Ive since invested in an ihybrid pure and i adore it.

    Knuckle of my pinky. I use my Magneto in 18650 mode, and I like to hold the mod near the top cap. My pinky is the only finger that feels right.

    good question! i had a k100 and it was always interesting to see the different ways that people would hit it! i usually would take a full fisted grasp and use the inner side of the middle knuckle on my pinky finger.

    this would be a funny behavioral psychology experiment. "if you hit a k100 like this, then you act like X" lol. those experiments are normally bs though imo, like those handwriting analyses.
