    That was my attack plan.
    Start vaping an one batt while one charges - figure at least a few puff on shipped batt.
    Then, green light, switch, and I'm running for the week!!!!

    neither of my batteries had Any life, at all.

    One did charge faster. pretty damn impressed with the results.

    Must not ever get fierce or high liquid again lol... my heart is racing like crazy. haha.

    only grip is the button is somewhat hard to get to fire, and that the size difference to have used the 18500 battery would have been .2 inches bigger on the diameter, which wouldn't have been That much bigger, and would probably triple the battery life (900mah to 2700mah i believe)

    The threads on the adapter seem to have been machined under tolerance. they fit lose and will definitely get worn out fast. (i ran a lathe, bridgeport, and a haas CNC mill at a machine shop for 3 years, i know what loosey goosey threads feel like, cut some loose threads in my day...) I don't know what their process is in making the adapter is, so blaming it on PS would be benign, it could be a part they insert from another mfg. If not... casey go yell at your mfg!

    all and all I'm really happy so far :D

    OMG!!! Mine arrived today.

    Steve....Casey.....I bow before you a humbled vapor dude.

    Not only does the 14500 rock for vapor but the Protege is just an amazingly fine looking device. Not just pretty but elegant, sleek and just so.......PERFECT!

    Your are now both on my Christmas list twice!

    Thanks.

    But that is .2 in diameter ... in the PV world, that is a HUGE difference. Especially when you can replace an 18500 with (2) CR2's ... Would have made the Protege much beefier ;)

    You should check the ID tolerance on a protected battery ... there pretty much is none ;) LOL

    Plus, the 18500's from Tenergy (who I go through) are only 1300mAh ... All of 400 more mA than a 14500 .... If it was 2000+ mAh ... I may have thought about it .... :D

    I think the adpater is made by PS but the problem lies in the attys.
    I have 510's from two different places and they're a little different.
    One has a gold band at the bottom and it's nice and snug where the all black one seems a little loose.

    You must not own a stock e-cig. Now there is some sloppy tolerances.

    the brass... where the atty connects, all 3 of my attys including the one from u guys seemed loose... i was sort of afraid to tighten the thing down all the way cause of it... but it works... just wont be rough with it...

    and my memory was jacked its the 18650 that i saw that was a 2600mah but its a little longer than the 18500 i think... any which way... all i was shooting at is a slightly bigger device could be a huge amount of battery

    I'm betting there is a cool way to make a 5v device small like the protege somehow... i don't know anything about the battery sizes though...

    i do own a normal dse801 kit and a smoking everywhere gold... they didn't feel loose


    i'm really not trying to give you all a hard time its just in my nature to micro-analyze things... being a machinist RUINED me cause i always think of how to improve things or find things wrong...

    18650 is WAYYYYY bigger than a 14500 or 18500 ... 2 very different beasts ... LOL .... The Prodigy Barely fits an 18650 :)

    Hey, i'm all about micro-analyzing things ... Its what makes us and our products better :) Reason for the tolerance is do to several factors, including a long range of different types of manufacturers of atomizer. We kept things as *open* as possible to suit every atomizer made, and I believe, we pretty much have :)

    I've not had a dse-801 but the joye-510s I have are very sloppy fit. Even snugged up you can tilt the atty about 2 degrees.

    A tendency to analyze or have a good critical eye hardly qualifies you as ruined! Quite the opposite - great skills if you know how to use 'em :thumb:

    As for a smaller 5v device, I think Steve is about to show us a great one in the Prodigy V2. Bigger than the Protege or course - it has to be if you want decent battery life. But I'm betting he's going to push the size down pretty hard from anything we've seen before and still have good battery life.

    No pressure Steve. ;-)
