    Uses two 14250 batteries. Lightly documented :(

    It's beer o'clock and I'm going to see how long it lasts.. Two freshly charged batteries and off we go..

    btw: your orders will be late tomorrow :D

    I love the idea of stuffing 5V in to a small box, but I can't help but be worried about the draw on those batteries.. those little guys are claiming to be 350mAh and even at that rating it scares me. I'd keep a lot of spare batteries around if you build this, but again it is really slick. I love the idea of just tossing the LED in the clear case and not having to mount it. Now find me some clear 3AA boxes and I'll be a happy modder :)

    The 2AA 5v is my next project using the horn style button I like, now that I've been testing out out the 3AA 5v penstyle for about 2 days and it seems to be running fine.

    Now, if only I could find a one-stop store that carries all the parts needed..........oh wait. :p

    Thanks for the illustrated DIY, Hoog.

    For battery life. I used this last night from 7:30 pm until 1:45 am, you know regular use and then this morning got about a half hour from it before the light wouldn't turn on anymore.. So I'd venture that I got about 4+ hours of intermittent use.. not too shabby..

    Umm, so what does that translate to when you break it down by VPB, (vapes per beer)?:)

    Too many orders to pack so only had 4 or 5 but hit the vape pretty hard, probably an hour of solid vaping.

    Glad to know that you stock the 14250s...they are very hard to find, and I had a few projects in mind that would require them.

    I second the service thing. You should have a class on service for some of the other sellers. Mad Vapes is Great.:):):) When are you going to get aaa 3.7v in?

    So after another round of battery testing.. I put in 2 14250's at 9:00am yesterday.. Used them all day at my desk and the unit finally stopped working at 4:00pm.. So about 7 hours and I hit it pretty good.

    I put in a 14500 after that and it's still churning at 2:19pm today, almost 16 hours of intermittent use so far although I feel it's about due for a swap..

    I'm new at this. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    The red (positive) wire should be soldered to the center post of the atty connector. The black (ground/negative) wire should be soldered to the outer rim.
