    :D :D

    I gave a little toy Sonic Screwdriver to our factory's engineer, and he's putting an e-cig battery into it for me!! :D :D

    I'll post a pic as soon as he gets it done! :D :D:D

    I gave the entire engineering department Leaford Lanyards as gifts this morning, so this is sort of their return gift for me. They were very happy to receive the Lanyards BTW. One of them in particular is going around showing his off to everyone. He keeps popping his head in the office where I've got my computer set up and giving me a big grin and thumbs up. :D

    Just watch you'll go into work tomorrow and they'll have made their own version out of a cat or something to give you back in return :D

    I'm excited to see pics of the mod, that's gonna be sweet.

    No, I brought that one, but decided it was too big for my liking, and besides, they'd have to gut all the fun parts, like the sound effects, so I just gave them this one: Amazon.com: Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver LED Torch

    And I left the details up to them, like whether to incorporate the button for a manual, or use an auto switch, whether to wire in the LED, etc. All I care about is having a working e-cig batt in the SS body.

    I got it! It works, but it's charging right now. :D

    The led flashlight on it was working but quit for some reason. Could be the toy's fault, or the mods. The engineer wired the LED up to the e-cig battery for power, but kept the LED on/off switch separate, and used an auto e-cig batt. Either way, I didn't really care about that part.

    I took a pic, but can't seem to upload it past their firewall today, so I'll do that after work when I get home.

    Now, assuming it doesn't die on me today, I need to get them to make one more for Steve. He'll kill me if I have a toy he doesn't. :D :D


    EDIT: OK, I guess I lied a little; I find that I DO care that the LED doesn't work anymore, so I took it back to Mr. Liu to have that fixed. It was just a bad solder, so they're fixing that for me now. :D

    Too bad we can't actually market this. I'd love to have an entire line of novelty e-cigs. Sonic Screwdrivers, Lightsabers, Phasers, etc etc etc.

    Well, I got it back, with an new LED. It turned out not to be a bad solder after all, the LED was incompatible with the e-cig batt, so they swapped it out and replaced it with a new one. Now it works, but is not as bright as a flashlight anymore. Good enough! Puffs up a storm, too! :D :D

    I dunno either. But that was one of the new carts with 1.0ml of liquid. That change alone has increased vapor production, IMO. And the cell in it is brand new. Brand new batts always perform a little better than usual for a while. But yes, it's a little vapor demon right now at least.
