      Thanks for sharing. For now I will stick to buying from the experts!

        Nice box mod video, we could use more of these in the vaporverse. The 901 connector is a Coaxial Power connector I think you’re right it’s Type-M.

        For extra apocalypse prep you can build a very simlilar mod that uses 4 AA batteries, with either disposable or Ni-MH. Just in case you’re not able to get 14500s during the apocalypse.

            AWESOME!!!! You had me at “How to”!!! lol…In all seriousness though, I will be giving this a try for sure. I have built quite a few mods myself. The problem is I can never keep them! They are usually so inexpensive to make that I end up giving them away to people interested in making the switch! Might as well go ahead and make another one!

                Here’s hoping DHS doesn’t notice all this peculiar hardware flying off the shelves of Radio Shack!

                  Great video Cody! This is incredibly helpful, and even cheaper to build than a Puck mod! Very nice.

                              That is awesome. Great thing to know how to do if this ban happens to go though.

                                    What would you have to do to make this thing accommodate a Kick with an 18350? What would you do to ground the spring on the Kick? Thanks!

                                      I have wanted to try to make my own mod. May just have to head to Radio Shack. Great info. Thanks.

                                                  Looks like it could be fun to build it all on your own. Maybe I’ll give this a go.

I held the button down and screwed it in and as soon as the tank makes contact with the bottom of the 510 connector the light turns off….. Anyone have any ideas?

                                                                                    Need help with box mod on August 15th, 2013 1:55 am
