    This will be hard for some of you to believe but I made it through an entire 8 1/2 hour work shift on ONE 14500. Granted, they don't pay me to vape and I was vaping 24mg unflavored WTA juice but there you have it. Red light started blinking when I got in the car to go home.

    I've got some of the new, genuine, AW batteries, but they still show the red light while vaping, either immediately, or after hitting it a couple times. That is with several different builds.

    Looks like I'll have to get some Efest batteries.

    A red blink means VIR can't heat the coil fast enough. It can be because of too thick wires, too many spires, too much liquid on the wick.
    What you describe is exactly what I use to have when using thick wires (0.6 mm). It all went fine when I used thinner wires (0.3 mm). Hope you'll sort it out.

    Hi all, I've a question about the vent holes on proteus. On mine, it seems they're either closed, or extremely tight. When the bottom cap is closed and I try to blow in the tube (on the end where VIR would be), I simply cant. No air can go through the closed tube.
    Is it an isolated defect of my bottom cap, or it is designed that way?

    On mine I can blow fairly freely through it, even with a battery inserted.

    Question Imeo...
    Are there plans to make a hybrid connector for the proteus and Penelope 4?

    My Proteus #45 arrived 10 days ago but I still wait for the bateries.

    In the mean time I have ordered Penelope Mini (hour ago) so soon I will have everything for ideal vaping experience. :)

    I'm just sad that my Tilemahos X1 didn't arrived yet. :(

    Only thing left for me is to get Esterigon for Tilemahos and I'm all set... except for VIR for Esterigon. :thumbs:

    thanks for the feedback ... Imeo, any suggestion? I'm happy to get a replacement cap even without any number, I have a terrible experience with the seller I got my 2 proteus and would like not to go through him anymore for defects (if possible).

    It seems like a tight battery monk. Did you change caps and batteries between your 2 Proteus?

    No Imeo, there's no battery when I blow in the tube.
    Could it be that holes are missing on that bottom cap?

    Looks like I was right. It was the batteries. I got my new batteries today and gave them a charge. Proteus has been vaping like a champ all day. Makes me even more excited for a VIR adapter for Esterigon then I can use my favorite atomizer with it!

    I agree. I got my 4 new AWs in yesterday and they make a large difference. I also have 4 efests on the way so I can compare the brands.

    All this week I have taken Proteus to work. I wondered if that was going to be possible, it is! And now that I've done it I found it not only possible, but preferable!

    I know that this is probably a dumb question but what is the ideal 14500 to run on the Proteus? Been busy lately and have not had time for the forum.
