    After a few weeks with my Prodigy, I am loving it. I have however discovered a serious design flaw. Recently I have been having pain in my index finger, the one you use to activate the Prodigy. I immediately switched to using my middle finger but that one was also soon incapacitated. I don't know what to do now. If I use my third or pinkie finger, the other two then rest on the atomizer and that thing gets hot.

    I feel that the Prodigy should be a thumb operated device. It's the strongest. PS needs to move the button from the top of the device to the bottom. I have illustrated this change in the following photo.

    The red arrow shows the current position of the switch. The blue arrow shows where the switch should go for proper long term use. I'm not sure how hard it would be to make this change but it's possible a recall is needed to correct this error.

    Just rotate the prodigy and use your thumb to push the button.

    Really, but if you do that then the Prodigy logo is upside-down.

    Not if you vape while standing on your head.

    Do I look like Shannon Miller? No, I don't, but maybe I could get some of those gravity boots or an inversion table. What would the head-rush be from upside-down 5V vaping?

    Hmmmmm...

    Either you're joking or you have a SERIOUS case of obsessive compulsive disorder. Use your thumb, forget the logo. :D

    You disparage my handicap sir, and I am insulted. I challenge you to a dual. Vaporizers at 10 paces, I hope your batteries are charged.

    Another easy solution. Become a sponsoring member, and you can make your title anything you want. Plus a bigger inbox, a larger signature, bigger avatar... all for $2 per month or $20 for a year.
