    It does exist?
    I don't have an Esterigon but a 18350 VIR device would interest me.
    What apart from the adapter would one need?
    18350 body
    locking cap
    venting cap
    atomizer cap
    that "VIR Esterigon adapter"

    that's it? how I understood it the positive spring-loaded pin is the same in proteus and esterigon - so I could use that from Proteus and of course VIR. anything I'm missing?

    ah, the button and LED-cover. would I be able to use those from Proteus as well in your adapter?

    hybrid base for esterigon Brem. I think Monk asked for this OR for the other. If I read wrong, sorry :)

    woita, esterigon needs the below things work with VIR and at the same length as it is right now:

    a venting cap like Proteus's
    a brass pcba tube like Proteus's
    a small pin that will replace the atomizer pin

    I am thinking of making those parts and sells them below my cost for people that have Proteus, so they can easily have a 18650 device with VIR inside. Where will they find VIR? The one inside Proteus.

    The wireless style of VIR is brilliant and allow us to make too many things. Nothing is fixed on GG devices as you may know. I hate fixed style because its China like stuff.

    excellent plan imeo, as usual :)
    As you know I've taken my Proteus apart a couple of times. I absolutely agree, it would be easy to swap VIR back and forth between Proteus and Esterigon depending on what one needs.
    Add me to the preorders for this :D

    My question was for an adapter to put VIR in estirigon :(
    When do you think it will be available?

    To be honest, my opinion is that VIR will take off and shine when it will be able to be powered by 18XXX batteries as well as in proteus.

    I love that idea, the Proteus is great but I don't like carrying spare batteries. I crave all day confidence lol

    Well, if you look at GG catalogue, it's quite obvious that Esterigon is a mechanical version of Proteus, just fatter; but if you read the to-do-list for putting VIR inside Esterigon, you realize that you have to change everything but the battery tube and the AC connector! ;)

    Don't go bashing people into head with regulated mods!
    I bet Imeo could make you something more suitable for personal defense that you could also vape with!
    GG-Hammer perhaps?

    Hi all, the forum seems very quiet lately ... is there any update about the VIR adaptor for larger batteries tubes (esterigon, ...)?

    I have an extra chip hanging around for just such an occasion. It would certainly feel more fulfilled rather than just being an extra emergency part.
