    Just had to build this......Not a new idea as a 3.7v was made over a year ago at this link:

    http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/modders-forum/92811-my-first-mod-camel-carto-box.html

    Took 3 months to find the wood box (Zippo lighter wood box from 1998)....then alot of sanding, shaping, staining, etc. to get the finished look......

    Kinda wanted a "stealth" VV with digital voltage display.....tight fit but got it all in there....

    Variable Voltage using the PTR08100W regulator with a N/C "fire" switch(using the inhibit pin 1) and a "slide" main on/off switch. Batteries are Protected 16340's (900mah). 510 "sealed" battery connector. Digital voltage indicator from MadVapes.

    Wow nice, I would love to get a hold of one of those camel boxes, never seen one before.

    Impressive use of space, particularly that the meter is hidden away inside too. One really doesn't need to see that except when adjusting voltage. Great work!

    Yep, the PTR08100W regulator works better than any other regulator I have used....runs cool and the efficiency is wonderful...it is now the only regulator I use....if there is something better out there I would like to know about it.....

    Building mods is a hobby so I'm always looking for "better" and "smaller"......and the hard one to find is " a small digital voltage display", which I have not found yet......

    That is REALLY nice!
    My husband made me a hand carved bottom fed box mod. Then I've got a mark III, & a mark IV in Cedar, & 3 Reo Woodviles. Something about wood is super classy.

    Thanks........just finished putting another finish coat on it, as I had a few blemishes in it that I had to sand out....so it is curing now.....

    Already looking for my next project.....wood cases are hard to find.....but they are out there....

    Nice! I would LOVE to have a mod just like that but with a butterfly engraved on the front instead of the Camel stuff :) Would you mind measuring that for me? I might just start keeping my eyes out for a pretty box. I have no clue how to mod anything, but I will find a way to make it happen :D

    approximately 3" tall x 2"wide x 1 1/4" thick....(just put finish coat on it and it is drying, but these measurements are pretty close.....)

    Is that the inside area measurements or the outside?

    That's a really good size. My latest mod I use mainly is 3-3/4" x 2.5" x 5/8". Hehe, American measurements, I had to convert. I'm really used to metric measurements now and don't even use American anymore. Metric really is much better, except I still like the F scale better than the C scale for temperature, better resolution. My mod is a bit big, but still comfortable. It's real thin anyway, not much fatter than an AA batt. Yours is probably in a real nice comfort zone. I'm working on doing a smaller one myself. I have to give up battery capacity for it though. Capacity is gigantic with this one (5Ah), runs a week on a charge for an average vaper, a lot less me since I vape about 250mA per hour, I'm a real battery killer, hence the unusually large capacity.
