    I was thinking about something around your neck or a simple strap like they use on cameras but the neck strap is girlish to me and it can swing around. The hand camera strap you can still drop unless you wrap it around your hand but this seems cheesy too. I want something stylish and not cumbersome.

    i was thinking about a leather Bracelet like something a biker would wear that has a matching hole in it the e-cig could slip into. The e-cig would be attached via a retractable cord to the bracelet, kinda like those retractable cords they use for computer mice. This would be something i would have to custom make but I think it's a cool idea if done right. Guys could wear it and it would look like a biker bracelet.

    Other than my silly idea, what is out there to keep you from dropping your e-cig?

    I'm serious. It seems to me dropping your 100 dollar e-cig can be very bad indeed and there should be some stylish accessories to help you keep it in your hand. If not, heck perhaps I'll make a biker bracelet with retractable cord and sell the heck out of em . <grin>

    At home I use a an ID lanyard with an ID strap clip. The strap fits nicely around a 510 atty/carto. This works fine for my P10, P16, and Riva's (without the cone), but for anything heavier it might not work as well.

    I wish more mod makers would include some form of a lanyard attachment. I dread dropping my Darwin every time I use it. It is so small...

    Pockets or a case, Provari can be dropped and no problem, the others like Ali'i, must be handled with care.

    Pentel mechanical pencil pocket clip (or the old pocket clip for wooden pencils), just slipe it onto the battery and clip it to your shirt. It works on M401 and should work for other models that are about the same size.

    I have EGOs, and keeping them off the ground is a real PIA. Lanyards and wrist-straps seem kinda gay.
    Who wants their PV swingin' around, anyway?
    I put 'em in my pants pocket and hope that the button doesn't get pressed too much.
    It would be nice if I could keep them in my shirt pocket (like a pack of cigs).

    I have some pocket-protectors from the '70s around here, maybe they will work.

    For anybody who wants to customize their mod with protection I'd also suggest sugru (welcome | sugru | Hack Things Better). I've kept this stuff with me ever since I first used it. FANTASTIC stuff for all sorts of uses you wouldn't think about until you're ~right there~. You can either use it to provide bumpers and rings, custom mold something to slide a lanyard through, etc. Cheers, -Magnus

    Wow, that stuff looks pretty cool! Thanks for sharing it in my thread.

    edit: Er.. not that all the other answers are not cool too.. All of you have some great ideas.

    P.S. I'm a big Doctor Who Freak myself.. I'm downloading today's ep now. Gotta love Amy Pond! In more ways than one...

    FABULOUS idea - an Otterbox for PVs. Loving it.
    Just dropped my GLV2 SuperMini for the first time. Luckily, no love bump. Only a matter of time though.

    I put my box mod in pocket. If it drops and breaks, I have my spare in case in other pocket. Then when I get home I will just make another box for back up.
