    I just totally destroyed a 801 passthru battery trying to get the connector off , so I could make a Juicy box mod but it just wouldn't come free , I have 2 more batteries I can sacrifice or is there another easy connector I can use other than the phone jack as I don't wanna have to alter it .

    with my 801 the connector started to get loose so i just screwed on a 801 atomizer and turned it tight and shaked gently to get it out. i cut the wires and re-soldered it. Hope that works for you :)

    I used a blow lamp to heat the glue and threads on an atomiser to take apart, it made the job a lot easier.

    If you don't mind sacrificing some of the tube length, here is what I did.

    Using a hack saw, I cut the tube about 1/2" from the atomizer end, then with cutters, I cut into the part of the tube left on the atomizer end with side cutters and basically pealed the tube off. This left the atomizer end in good shape.

    I am using this to create my manual switch passthrough for my pen. I got it all together today but am having some kind of issue and ran out of time to get a meter and test it. Once resolved, I will post a thread of the results on the Mod forum with pictures.

    Well, I couldn't figure out what the problem was so I went back to using a Radio Shack box, jack and switch and abandoned the tube idea.

    Yeah the tube is a pain in the .... to work with. Thats why I like the "juicy" box style setup. I got my connector out via screwing into my weak atomizer real tight (not overly of course) and holding the atomizer very firmly as close as I could to the battery and wiggled it back and forth with a good amount of force, these connectors are pressfitted in so you have to make the tube warp a little to get it free. Now I just gotta master replacing that damned pressure switch (both of my "dead" batteries were fine, the switch was soaked)
