    Thanks guys, glad they're working out :)

    Added a link to the tutorial from the product page. Thanks again Rambosmurf :) and um, thanks for waiting the 6 months for us to get these done.

    I just added the last 5 to the website as it'll be a while until we get to modding them :(

    Thanks for posting this. It gave me the kick in the ... I needed to build mine. Got it finished Thursday night. I was going to do 5 volts, but decided to stick with 3.7. I drilled a hole opposite the switch and installed a 3mm blue LED.

    It does look cool! Lights up the top portion a bit and makes it glow. The LED just barely sticks out and it doubles as a flashlight. :D

    Nice work. The color makes for a conversation starter, the LED will leave them in awe.

    Holy cow I just now saw this mod tube!!! I'm bummed that I didn't get in on it.

    I am rockin 6v on a "Copp3r" right now but wanted to make my own yet wasn't really feelin a flashlight or box.

    I REALLY REALLY wanna do a mod with the blue tube!!

    Please tell me they will be back available soon :)

    BTW, awesome job posting that PDF and good job with a sweet lookin piece!!

    Anything special I gotta do to throw in an LED, just solder it into the circuit or do I need some sort of regulator to make the LED work?

    Thanks!!

    Just wire it in the circuit. Assuming you want it to light when the atomizer/carto is on just put it across the 2 wires to the atomizer. You'll want a resister to reduce the voltage. Whenever I've ordered LEDs from MadVapes I also got resisters with them. They have them for like a dime I think. LEDs have a + and - leg, you just need to wire correctly. If it doesn't light swap the leads around. The longer leg is the + lead on the LED.

    Thanks for the quick catch. That's what I get for not proofreading what I wrote. I corrected my post to say it is the positive lead.
