    .wysiwyg { BACKGROUND: #ffffff; FONT: 10pt verdana, geneva, lucida, 'lucida grande', arial, helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000 } P { MARGIN: 0px } .inlineimg { VERTICAL-ALIGN: middle } Ladies, this was soooo easy. Don't waste your money on the dlight diamond tipped PV. This is my 501. I think you can use any PV.
    You don't even have to buy a bedazzler kit. Just buy a packet of the refill crystals.

    1. Pop off plastic cap

    2. Bend prongs to fit in the end of your pv.


    3. with a small brush or toothpick apply a thin layer of jewelers glue around the edge of the crystal.


    3. Insert jewel from the Bedazzler kit!


    I did this in about 5 min. Nothing could be easier!

    It was so easy I couldn't believe it. The crystal fit right in! A .5 cent crystal and they are charging like $25 bucks extra for it. Of course I am vaping champagne with it.

    The refill kit comes with all the sizes? Found a kit for 4.99 (w/o shipping - shipping is going to kill me LOL)

    Bedazzler Refill Clear

    I'd--in a perfect world--like to find the perfect size for my 510 battery and just get that size but I'll go with whatever works at the moment.

    P.S.- anyone know an easy method to getting a graphic on the rounded surfaces of batteries/attys? Printing, stenciling, embossing it's not an issue. I just want something that will last the life of the piece to help distinguish my e-cig from my wifes. (This rhinestone being the first step.)

    Thanks for the walkthrough Vconrad! This is going to be a new "must have" mod for many users and it's so easy!

    ok what happened here? You replaced the ash cap with a bedazzle-dodad? Can you get a closer up photo by chance?

    Edit - removed my previous post. Found out the the actual "Bedazzler" size is 34. You can purchase the stones and settings in the colors you want here: Kit Kraft Rhinestones and Settings

    The really sad thing about all this research is that I've tried to purchase these from about 10 sites and none of them ship to S. Korea. I'm getting a bit ticked off at companies that don't want to make money on the expatriate market. :grr::confused::grr:

    Hi, Stehle. I'll make one for you personally. What color crystal do you want? I think sapphire blue for you.

    All these places ship US only. I'll have to go the old fashioned route and get them shipped to a friend, buy them a case of beer, get them to ship it to me.

    At least all my health care is taken care of for under $200 annually LOL.

    Pretty crafty of you vconrad. Better than my idea of a swarovski crystal and plumbers goop. Yours is more economical, as the batteries are throw aways anyway. Very nice.

    I got a fix for your graphics needs too Porphy. Nail art. I started puttingthem on my attys so I could tell the old from the new. Here is a pic.

    Porphy, here's what you gotta do. Find a 12 year old girl. Say show me your Bedazzler stash. I'll give you $5.00 fora few 5mm crystals.

    LOL Bedazzler never made it big over here or I would. On the nail art I've been hitting local beauty places picking some up but I really want to find some for myself, so I've been scouring the internet for some "manly" looking ones.

    From what I gather you grit down the finish a bit, apply the nail art, and top coat. I'm sure I could just slap it on but I think with the above method it'll have some longevity. I'll give it a whirl once I find a good spray-on top coat.

    Update on the rhinestones! Found a costume shop that has these in stock and ships internationally! Was a ***** finding a store that shipped to me, with the right product. Who knew being crafty could be so tough?
