    My regular supplier sells an eGo adapter for charging your cell phone, which struck me as a brilliant idea. But why aren't there more products like that? How about a 510 threaded electric razor or nose hair trimmer? Maybe a little LED flashlight attachment? Weren't the first vape mods made from flashlights? Shouldn't be so hard to do that in reverse, right? I think vape mods and batteries could become the electronic Swiss Army Knife of the future. Maybe someday even a laser scalpel like they used in 'Alien' to cut the face-hugger, hehe.

    Any ideas from the ECF community? I encourage fantasy and funny ideas as well as practical ones. And please, remember to stay within forum guidelines so we don't get deleted for having a thousand suggestions for sex toys...

    If I saw a 510 threaded LED flashlight attachment for sale I would have to buy one.

    How about one of those hand-held DC fans. Putting a 510 thread on there is simple enough, but I wonder if they can take the brunt of harsh chinese mod PWM.. Another reason to buy a provari?

    Based on how much my cat seems to enjoy knocking them off the coffee table and pushing them under the couch, I'd say cat toys. :unsure:

    She's done that with two unattended mod tubes as well... :facepalm:

    If we can get this on USB we should be able to run it on a mod. It can heat and cool your drinks.

    Are you talking about vapable cat toys?

    Interestingly, the fan and the LED flashlight would work very well with "harsh Chinese PWM", and work very badly with a nice clean Provari voltage.

    Electric motor speed control is generally PWM. The voltage spikes help defeat stiction I think. It's how model train-sets work (or used to until they got digital control, still might internally.) LEDs need constant current, which is generally provided by just a simple resistor. That means they have to be designed for a fixed voltage. When you see an LED being dimmed, 99.999 times out of a hundred, it's being fed PWM. Persistance of vision means you see a continuous light, and you see the average brightness.

    I was just implying that most fans are DC-powered unless you add a control circuit to add PWM-control functionality. The same goes for miniature electric motors.

    Just found this:

    I don't think she'd appreciate me vaping her toys, but the dogs would probably get a kick out of that, lol.

    I can't see your link I'm afraid. It seems Swan Design don't allow deep linking. I went to page 20 or so, but couldn't see anything apposite.

    DC motors work fine with PWM, no control circuit required. PWM is not AC, it's switched DC.

    AC motors on the other hand are a different proposition.

    It would be cool to combine an ecig with a taser for those times you run into criticism of your vaping. Just gotta be careful what setting you have it on before you vape it.

    Fixed it and found yet another item that's capable of being mod-powered, Seems ideal for the office!

    With an MVP you can use any USB attachment and just flip the switch to turn that port on. Problem solved.

    Very real but get the 3.7 v if you do unless you want their power supply.

    $18.95 for a flash light seems a little much for me too, until I look at what I spend for a couple of batteries.

    I just might be able to run that USB powered drink heater/cooler on my MVP. Vaping while drinking a cold one--priceless! :vapor::toast::D
