    Thanks everyone,

    TnA,
    Nylon would work fine, I just happen to have a bunch of scrap acrylic on hand. I would much prefer machining the nylon, acrylic is miserable stuff.

    The 901 hard cap works too, good for stealth vaping cause then the LED is just a pinhole at the end.

    I just mentioned something like this in another post. If batteries come with a white LED and if you can make the caps in different colored acrylic, I think that would be the coolest. You could easily change the color of the light to suit your mood. Better yet, maybe clear plastic cap on the battery with a colored film mounted in a cap over that.

    Just think... With a white LED, in a pinch, you've lost something in the dark. Pull off your colored cap. Instant handy micro flashlight, lol.

    You know this happened to me. It was dark out and I was changing carts at a picnic table. The cart rolled off the table into the grass. I had to go get a flash light. :-x

    this is way cooler then the ash cap..i hate how the e cig tries to mimic a real cig n i always thought the ash cap was the crappiest looking thing. at first i wanted an e cig that looked and felt like a real cig but after vaping for a while i want it to be as different as possible..lol

    Take a cartomizer cap off and use the rubber seal that's in there. It's even got a small hole in it already. It looks better than a cartridge condom on the end of your e-cig! LOL

    I think your on to something. I absolutely hate the ash caps that come on batts and yours look amazing. I think you should sell them. I know I would buy them.

    Could you give more detailed instructions on how you did this. I have never worked with acrylic before and I don't know what you mean by "turned down". I really want to make one of these, I haven't even gotten my new 902 yet and I don't like the gray ash caps at all, they look dopey. Thank you so much, very good design.
