I posted this in another forum and thought I'd share it here too:
It's been a while since I built a mod - procrastinitius, ya know ; definitely not for lack of supplies. So I'm posting this as a push to get this mod completed.
I saw a post by MadManMacguyver, where he had made a PT-in-a-box mod. This got me thinking , when I'm at work I usually vape at my desk with my ACDC plugged in. A desktop PT that I can leave by my computer at work would be nice. So I've been collecting stuff from eBay for a while now and I think I have everything I need.
I had been waiting for a wooden box I ordered from eBay (which I did get yesterday ) when I 'saw' the wooden box which holds two decks of playing cards which has been setting on my nightstand for a few years now.
It looks very similar to this:
So this desktop box will
1) have this kis-3r33 module - Kis-3r33 DC-DC Step-Down Power Module 4A LM2596 IN 4.75-24V TO 0.93V-18V | eBay
2) it will be switchable from AC power (12V/2A) to battery power (2 x 18650)
3) voltmeter wired to read batteries or Vout with tact switch to activate
4) a detachable 'vaping wand' - I made a first attempt at making this, will try again for finished mod. This will most likely be made from a 1"x1" square wooden 'dowel'. Shaped with dremel. Hole drilled down through the center for batt connector and wires. A Mad Vapes black horn button (I just like those). Wire going from this 'wand' to the PT box will most likely be 18 gauge speaker wire - ~2 to 2.5 ft. The end of the wire will have a 5.5x2.1mm male jack to plug into the Vout 5.5x2.1mm female jack.
So the layout will be like this:
So now this is posted and if I don't post pics of a finished product soon, I'll feel like an a$$ and I really don't like feeling like an a$$
Oh, by the way, I get to define what "soon" is
And just to point out that my procratinitus is real and flourishing; 2 months later the finished product:
