    I'm looking for a reliable vw dual 18650 mod that you have to screw in the battery doors.

    That's a tough one. I really can't think of one. :(

    Hopefully someone will be along @evan le'garde ? You got da list. Did you run into one?

    It's s great idea actually the "Screw in" door on single battery mods can be so reliable.

    Every bottom hinge I've used the door gets loose and looses contact and I thought the aegis legend would be cool, being tough but there's a bottom door. I may just have to find a good side door mod again.

    I know I've seen them screw in for a double barrel type mech mod. Maybe I'll just get the original Aegis, but I'm used to dual 18650.

    Yes Anna, the Pioneer4you "IPV 3" 150 watt box mod dual 18650. I have one, coincidentally !. Haven't used it in ages, but as i recall the door screws on with two hex head screws. Screwdriver supplied in the box.

    Thanks for the info! Do you know of a mod where the bat doors are are like plugs you screw in like the Aegis? Do you think I'd enjoy the Aegis when I'm used to two 18650s? I vape dual twisted 24g at .1ohm at 85w

    Coil resistance is irrelevant when it comes to battery life with a regulated device. Your wattage is what matters, and 85 to 90 watts with a single battery is not going to give you much run time. Best to stick with dual battery devices.

    Own 2 Aegis Legends that have been in use daily for the better part of a year, no issues with the door. Perhaps you received a faulty one, or perhaps there is something within your routine that is causing the failure.

    Just thought I'd give stats because people ask for them. The aegis legends door does ware out, they sell replacement pieces for when it does. I don't own one and decided against it once I seen the door.

    Ok, cool.

    There have a been just a handful of reports of broken doors with the Legend but we have to consider the amount of units sold vs failures – The Legend enjoys a pretty low failure rate. Can’t speak for wear. One of my Legends is going onto 2 years old now, the other just over a year. Both work fine and are used daily. Wear can also affect screw in battery caps – run the risk of cross threading.

    As for a dual cell device with screw in battery caps…that is going to be rare. I haven’t seen anything outside dual cell mech box mods.

    You could also look into devices that employ magnetic doors. But at 80 to 90 watts, I’d stick with dual cell or more devices

    Squid Industries "Double Barrel V3" 150 watt, 2 18650 batteries. Really nice simple design and i like the display placement.

    As for screw in plug style battery doors i can't think of any off the top of my head, sorry !.

    I'm glad to hear your door hasn't failed in two years. I might reconsider my position but with my paranoia Id still buy extra doors lol. It is cool their door is fixable. I have the topside dual and I have to keep a ruber band around it. I've had it since launch. I would rather have a two battery mod that's for sure.

    I think Geekvape offering replacement doors is more toward their excellent customer satisfaction than their poor quality. Accidents happen, doors can break. Not many companies offer replacement parts, regardless of their quality. But given GV does offer replacement doors, perhaps that can be selling point to you. I know I am not alone by saying the Legend is a great device.

    Regulated mods are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. All mods for that matter.

    The old Vapor flask used a dual screw/plug battery cover, but it's a VW device. It is however a very tasty looking mod, even now.
