    Use the PoorVari regulator circuit, fixing the output voltage at your desired level, and substituting the 8 Volt source with current from the lighter socket, then route the output to your Atty or carto. You should be good to go.

    I learned the hard way that the ground and negative in the USB connector aren't always connected together. The passthru might use either the ground or the negative wire in the cable but the adapters only use one or the other. I have a battery pack that uses 4 AAs and has a USB connector on it. I had to solder a jumper in it between ground and negative to get it to work. The USB in the computer ties them both together. Whether that's what's happening in your case, I don't know but it's worth a look.

    You could get an eGo type battery with the passthrough feature: mine works equally well plugged into a computer usb port, a wall charger with usb port, or a car charger with usb port. The charger I use has 5v 500ma output.

    I have one that came with my first starter kit from v2.... Works great in my computer, in the car, never a prob. I didn't make it or anything, it just came with all the stuff. I highly recommend it!

    I like to vape while I tinker, not tinker in order to vape.
