    Hi everyone.

    I've been smoking analogs for almost 18 years.
    My friend recently introduced me to PV saying it would be a better alternative.
    Normally I smoke about 20 sticks a day... but with the PV, I only smoked 3 analogs on the first day. ( after meals:blush: )
    The transition was quite amazing. I'm quite sure with the help of a PV, I would finally be able to quit smoking.
    Recently I stumbled upon this cheap VV USB passthrough while surfing around and would like some feedback about it.
    Would it be dangerous to use it on portable USB power banks or on the computer while my main PV is charging? :blink:

    Welcome and congrats

    No, it will be fine. It won't charge fast, but it will still function.

    That's neat. Do you know what it is specifically? I'm looking for something cheap like that for work.

    Hi and welcome to ECF. I've got one of those which I purchased at High Desert Vapes, eGo Passthru. Cheap and effective, but it won't handle very high wattage and shuts down when overloaded. I also wouldn't recommend connecting it to a computer usb port. If it happened to pull too much power it could spell trouble for your computer. I would go with a usb wall adapter that puts out 2.0 amps, I found mine at Walmart for about $8.

    USB on most appliances is 5 Volts. You're not going to pull too much power.

    Also agree with not charging thru the usb port. Over the yrs have read a few stories of people frying their usb or MB. Just not worth the risk IMO.

    i own one of these! it wont handle low ohms, you are not supposed to use it on computers and gaming consoles because it pulls to much amperage. i got a wall charger with mine that is rated to 2 amps any power source must be rated for 2 or more amps. i don't use it much anymore but its nice to have in the car. also this is not a battery its just a pass-through.

    no but you would blow the circuit protection rendering your device (computer, gaming console what ever you plugged it into) useless, unless you know how to solder surface mount components and can fix the blown fuse.
