    i don't own a leo, but i figured that those of you who do might be interested in getting an adapter that will allow you to use a not-so-proprietary atty model with your leo. also, you can of course use 510 to 801/901/kr/etc adapters on top of this adapter if the 510 isn't your cup of tea :) didn't see this here with a quick search, so here ya go: Leo To 510 Adapter - Avid Vaper

    i have no vested interest, i just think cisco's a great guy :) enjoy!

    that i don't know. but someone did post in that thread you had about that where someone was using a make-shift adapter to do just that (at least that's what i think the pictures showed) so it stands to reason that it might.

    I am more interested in a 510 to Leo so the LEO atty can be used on other devices. Would be killer on a VV unit like the Buzz

    I am thinking it should work going to buy one and see. I have just learned that the leo battery is 3.7 volts compared to the ego that is 3.2. That would be the reason leo can produce more vape. If this adapter works with joye's T atty and tank system going to be a killer vape

    mxbnw, i can't imagine it would be hard (now that they've got the one) for them to reverse it, so to speak :) maybe drop them a line about it?

    mgmrick, so there's no PWM in the leo, eh? interesting. i wish you luck on the experiment.

    may not be as far off as you think Rick. The new cartomizers that I'll be getting in shortly hold 5 ml. of ejuice.

    I will try them when they do come out but so far any 510 carto has not worked well for me. They all produced tons of vape but no throat hit

    Just got email from vendor saying it would not work. Sent an email back asking why not. From the pictures looks like the cone should fit over the adapter. Or maybe a 510 extension? Or maybe need to grind a little bit off adapter so cone can go over. Waiting to hear back from vendor

    You could DIY yourself LEO -> 510 adapter

    How far down did you cut the leo atty? and then what, did you just solder a 510 connector in there?

    thanks

    Out of the box this adapter does NOT work for joye-T. I am using it by grinding down the out side of it so the joye-t atty would slide down over the adapter. You must also grind off off the leo battery collar for this to work. Maybe a 510 extension used also would allow it to work with out grinding down adapter and leo battery

    Did you get it to work? How does it vape? I'm thinking of trying the eGo-T myself.

    yes it works by grinding adpter down a little and cutting off some of the collar on leo battery. Or you can by a short 510 extension to go with the adpter. Vapes the same as a ego battery as they are the same voltage
