    I love zippo's but they dry out too quick and it's not like I need it anymore. I don't have parts to make PV yet, but this is a quick mod. Its just the insert thats modded, you can easily put the insert in any case or use all your zippos for different flavors! :D
    I've only just started vapping and I don't know the lengths off all the carts but it holds 3 1-1/4" carts and it still has the spring. You can stand the carts up, or lay them down which I think works better (just pull the insert up and tap a cart out). If your carts are only an inch long, you should beable to get a 4th in there. If you need to fit caps on your carts, you should be able cut the tin most of the way down the flint side without any problems.

    All I did was cut the flint holder and wheel then a little out of the side with the dremel. Inserts are held together with epoxy and you'll have to cut through a little to do the mod, so wear a mask.

    Great idea! I've got a ton of Zippo's that I won't be using anymore.

    Awesome, if you added a spring at the bottom and loaded them horizontal, you'd have a spring-fed Cartridge Magazine! Now I've got to go digging through my junk drawer again. Thanks! Man this makes me want to try carts again just so I can use such a cool toy. Damn, I'm still smiling at this elegant solution.

    That is pretty cool. I guess I'm going to have to find my old zippos and see if cartomizers will fit in them. Thanks for sharing :) It would be a good extra atty holder too :)

    I only have mega cartos, but if regulars are under 1-1/4 inches, they'll fit

    Zippo is an American icon and timeless. Glad to see it incorporated in the post-analog era. I have more than 50 and ready to do some modding. Thanks for sharing!
