    Ordered more stuff tonight for the build

    1.) Fatdaddys 12mm stainless steel tactical switch
    2.) 3034 Mosfet and 15k resistor
    3.) Red para cord
    4.) heat shrink tubing


    Im deciding rather or not to go with all .9999 solid silver wire or or just maybe silver plated copper strand silicone wire used in high amperage RC applications..OR, just solid core copper...:gaah::wait:

    Not sure what your experience is using any of those wire types. But I personally would recommend using the silicone wire as solid wire can be a major pain when trying to route it in a box.

    Going with a safety feature here and using 2 15amp resettable fuses for a total of 30 amps..anything above this will shut the mod down and reset itself...Also adding in an On/Off Slide switch to cut power off and not worry about accidental firing when in the pocket or not in use.

    Looks cool. Measure twice, cut once he he. Might want a solder dab on the bottom of the VV2 +pin after its assembled so the pin won't unscrew when you take the atomiser off.
