    Sorry if this has been done before. I would like to start a thread for different style cases that can be purchased at local stores. I myself am always looking everywhere i go for a new case, it's an obsession lately. I built my most recent 901 mod from a $4 flexible head led light. Picked it up from BigLots. My appologies for poor quality pic.

    BTW this will fit a 18650 battery!

    Great thread idea. There are a ton of good-looking cases out there that can be easily modded into a battery pack for the atomizer of your choice. Here are a few examples...

    A basic madog magnum mod for a penstyle atomizer


    Another flashlight case (pete, recently completed one)


    Your basic JuicyBox with and LED based on a post by Jaxxx


    The VapeSnake is a gutted Kensington Flylight. Only nitewriter has any idea how well it works

    I prefer the box mods. I am always checking out stuff that takes size AA batteries. If it has a kill switch and isn't huge or expensive, I start imagining how I might put it together. Dollar Tree is a favorite place for me to get creative.

    Good idea it could get lost in the shuffle, had to look around for it at first thought maybe my BlackBerry screwed up and deleted the thread.

    My local Target store has some Coleman hand held fans that use 2 AA batterys for under 3 bucks (camping/ sporting goods area). I picked up three thinking about using two rechargeable batteries in parallel for extra life. I was unable to find them on line for reference so not sure all stores have them.

    I'm also saving and looking at a metal cigar tube, it looks very promising. Stripped of paint and polished (aluminum) it should look really nice with a 901 atty stuck in the rounded end.

    Not much to this one, but the price was right and it keeps it in my shirt pocket.

    Hey John, which e-cig is that in your photo (sorry for the noob question:oops:)? That's a smart and simple idea! Thanks!

    This is a USB passthrough, not a battery case, but I cannot create threads yet.
    I really like the metal cigar tube idea.
    My boss gave me this desk mic, and asked me to make it into a USB passthrough for our sound tech as a joke. Using the built in push to talk button, it was a real easy convert (about 30 min.). Funny thing is, I never expected to like it and find it very functional. I don't have to worry about hooking the leash and flipping my e-cig on the floor. Pretty funny, but it hits great with a 5 volt 2 amp USB wall plug adapter....LOL

    This works good with my 2 piece unit. However, I like to remove the o ring and plastic tab from the end and use the condom instead. Then I'm SOL.

    aside of just good 'ol analog cases like this one......from
    Gift of Russia- Russian online shop: Ushanka, orenburg, pavlovo-posad shawl, nesting dolls, militaria


    you can take ragular cases and use all kinds of Badge insignia on them. just Epoxy what ever it is to the case.

    if you want to SKIN your case a good resource is anyone that makes skins for the "Guitar Hero" guitars. some of them will do custom work OR some of them also sell skins for computers, XBOX, could just buy a sheet, cut it and stick it. flames, skulls, chicks, union jacks, crosses etc.

    do a search on Ebay for Guitar Hero skins......there is quite a bit out there at resonable prices.

    heck, you can even use extra whatever and skin the INSIDE of the case if the bare metal "clank clank" of your batteries and carts bother you.

    Game, Phone and MP3 Skins -

    ALL kinds of good stuff out there.
