    Ok, so I am onto my next mod. I want to make a variable volt bottomfeeder. I have a couple of questions before I do some supply ordering.
    I can't get my head wrapped around the size of it, I figured I would try a 4aa box, 2 slots for batteries (14500), 3rd slot for electronics and 4th slot for the bottle.
    1) I am going to get the vv regulator rev 2 from mad vapes , so first question I am confused on do I solder the regulator to the board I know everything else has a hole/place?
    2) I see some other threads on building mods and see people use capacitors what are they and do I need one???
    3) Instead of using 2 14500 I would like to use a bigger battery, but what battery would fit into my plans or even the same box?( or do I need a different box )
    Pinching pennies here so I can't order a ton of stuff and experiment with batts and boxes.
    Any help or suggestions would be great. Sorry to be long winded. LOL

    All you need is in this thread http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/modders-forum/191607-easy-okr-t-vv-mod.html I just made one and it is nice. Oh and you probably want to make 2 one for back up lol.

    My first is the same route you going. All parts from mad vapes. the regulator heats up quick. If the voltage settings is low. Pretty easy to do just solder as the picture shows.

    The second one I made is the OKR-T and that was easy too. I did practice soldering by makign 2 3.7 box mods.

    I already did a 3.7 just for the practice aspect. So basicly the OKR-T is everything you need soldered in place?
    Also the diagram shows the batts stacked, what if I want to have them side by side? Sorry for the questions but I have to ask.

    side by side is ok. you just have to wire the battery right. I am using a 3 aa box and my atty in in the middle. I just solder the okr-t reg to the ICB and wire up. Have to bend the little solder points on the reg tho to fit the icb just be careful and do it slowly. Any other questions I will try to answer if not I pretty sure someone will come.

    If you have any questions or issues just let us know. The hardest part of putting together the OKR-T is deciding where to put the variable resistor for adjustment =] Also you have a lot of options on your final design. You can add a lot of features to it.

    Hehe, we all feel we need to help others deal with their "modumust fever" (as Gummy puts it). It is tons of fun building your own mods. Though, you can't be afraid of gaining some knowledge and learning a few new skills in the process.
