    ... and I've got no idea what to do with it. I think it'll fit a 10440 battery, which I can get out of a 510 PT i'm not using. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good tuturial? I've searched the modders forum and can't seem to find a mod quite like it. It's sorta like a laser pointer, but not really. If I wasn't such a n00b I could probably figure it out on my own. As it is... :oops:

    I wanna use it to show off my MadVapes uberness... seems silly just to use it for its intended purpose. :p

    I don't know about modding it to vape, but it WILL take a 10440. :)

    All I need now is a bulb assembly that will take 3.7v. :p

    Yup. Tried the 10440 and bulb went pop. :p

    Looks super easy to mod though... it may be just as simple as cutting the bulb housing down to fit a connector and building up the positive lead a little. Only thing keeping me from trying it is worrying about shorts.

    The search continues!

    Check Scubabatdan's (ECF member) work on the Modders Forum, Batterys, The PVMA no more worries for batt connectors! entry #143. I think that has some photos of his work using the 10440 in tight spaces. Good luck

    lol I was messing around with mine and forgot to switch the 10440 back out for the regular battery and next time I went to use it popped the bulb too.

    The mad vapes mini flashlight is my favorite mod so far.

    I popped the bulb holder and lense out of mine. Save the metal ring that makes contact with the switch.

    Soldered a large 510 battery connector into a washer that fit the end of the flashlight. I soldered the metal ring I saved to the end of the 510 connector so it would make contact with the switch, and built up the positive so it touched the battery.

    Epoxied the washer onto the end cap and it lasts a good 4 hours on a 10440. Been using mine now for a week at work. :cool:

    hoogie76 , I've made a PV out of every little flashlight you have sent with my orders . They are so easy to mod , please send more or let us buy them from you (list them on your site). I like to give them to smokers so they can try a PV. Thanks for the ones you have put in my orders.

    I just ordered a bunch of stuff from mad vapes for another mod. Haven't finished my first one yet. They have great service there and excellent shipping times. I wished the others shipped as quick.
