    I have 2 questions:

    I've seen that some vendors have pulled the VapeSafe fuse and are carrying the Holocron Shortstop instead. Is there a problem with the VapeSafe? Which, if either, is better?

    I am aware the a safety fuse is recommended for a mechanical and not for a VV device. But, what about an old-style fixed voltage device, like a Bolt or RoughStack?

    2 cent fuse (vape safe) = one use. Short stop = multiple uses.

    Vape Safe has a multiple usage version also though.

    Depending on what you are try to do, why not just use a protected battery in your Bolt or RoughStack?

    The Bolt requires an 18500. Since I've never had 18500 batteries before, I just automatically bought IMR since everyone says that they're safer chemistry than the old Protected ICRs.

    I planned on just using my old protected ICRs until they die, then buying all IMRs for everything.

    Should I not?

    Yeah, they're called Vape Safe2 . I bought them and they're junk. It shorted on me once and was never able to work properly again. I had it for about 1 month, and customer service couldn't help me with a warranty or exchange. They're not worth it. Go with the Shortstop.

    Pictures? The fuse has no sign of burnt components, if that is what you're trying to state here.

    Duh!

    Do you own a DMM and did you check it out prior to and after the fact?? The 2 cent fuse = one time only. I checked everyone that left our establishment :)

    Would one of these fuses work on a stack of 3 or 4 NiMH batteries?
