    [Submission] - KingPin! #1

    Thanks for this awesome comp guys

    My concept drawing for the Smoant "SLID3R" my vision of a back basics twist on a variable voltage mod

    IMG_1180.JPG
    IMG_1180.JPG

    Features

    Dual 18650 battery
    Variable Voltage Mod 3.2V - 6.2v output
    Reverse polarity protection
    Low voltage cut off
    Dimensions and height similar to the battlestar

    1) 25 - 30mm flush high quality 510 plate. Must be sealed in event of leaking from ejuice so as not to get into mod

    2) Analogue on/off switch

    3) tactile L.E.D fire button with 3 clicks to lock/unlock device and 5 clicks to lock/unlock last voltage set by potenionmeter

    4) a sliding potentionmeter range 3.2v at 0 to 6.2v at 100. Button is flush so as not to catch in pocket ...changes voltage only while in unlocked state

    5) digital voltage display same colour as L.E.D fire button

    6) removal battery cover held in place with rare earth magnets. I see smoant having selected retailers where users can upload an image to be printed/lazered on the back as a seperate purchase to fully customise this mod

    7) removable inlay plates to further customise the mod

    I'd say we have a winner, everybody else pack up and go home! Only thing I'd change is to make it a triple 18650..

    As long as you aren't flooding the thread with ideas it's fine. It hasn't been an issue yet so don't be "that guy" where I actually have to make a rule about entries.

    Also only one idea can be chosen as a winner. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will be 3 separate people.

    My artistry is lacking in age....but. I'd love to see a squonker that will fit 25mm attys and have the same battlestar chip as we know it is good at a low price.


    - Dual battery
    - Color changing fire button that can be shut off for those who don't want it
    - 200w
    - $90 price tag

    unfortunately I'm not at home with my pc to do it properly but this should give you the basic Idea of what I mean.


    Smoant Battlestar Reload.


    Comes with 2 Interchangeable Dual 18650 Battery Clips.

    Each clip has its own independent charging circuit, so while you use one the other can be charged via micro usb

    Battery clips have on/off switch so it can be safely carried around without worrying about a short circuit

    Dual, Triple and quadruple battery clips available separately.

    Dual 18650 clip mod goes to 200w
    Triple 18650 clip mod goes to 250w
    Quad 18650 clip mod goes to 300w

    [Submission] - KingPin! #2

    This next design was inspired by my nephew a guy who works on site constantly breaking his mod or getting dust or grit inside his atty/mod rendering it useless

    The Smoant "H4RD-B"

    IMG_1189.JPG
    IMG_1189.JPG

    This is the workers mod built to take a beating, survive drops and provide a great vape when having that coffee/tea break!

    Features;

    HB logo in recognition of the chippies pencil behind the ear, otherwise it's the hard bastard! :)

    For those colour conscious people on site colours to match your favourites (Dewalt, Milwaukee, Makita, Bosch, Hitachi etc etc)

    Internal rechargeable battery (build in a replaceable plug and play feature)

    167w max output
    Dimensions similar to the Geekvape mech pro
    Low voltage cut off
    Overheat protection
    Shockproof
    Splashproof
    Dustproof
    (Could even add other useful features like a laser measure integrates with the screen)

    1&2) soft button cover that when the shell is moved down will sit over the fire button. Is a replaceable part with spares coming with the mod kit

    3) button similar to one found on a tape measure by pushing allows the case to move into the protect position (front left) or into the engage position ready for vaping (front right)

    4) protective hard screen panel (replaceable held on by screws in the 4 corners) is sealed by oring when tightened). Give user standard info (wattage, battery, voltage, resistence, warning messages, other work related integrated features i.e laser measure)

    5) a "portal" style seal automatically open and closes when pushing the case up or down has a twist action although other variations could be used here fulfilling same protective role

    6) the atomiser will come as part of the kit, will be shock and leakproof design with a decent 4-5 ml capacity - however a user can replace it with one of thier own as long as the height is the same

    7) tool belt clip placed on the upper part so
    When closed will naturally keep the mod closed not putting stress on the button (part3)

    8) USB charge port (a dust cover will be provided and integrated into the mod)

    9) vent holes dust and splashproof design could use some sort of mesh here

    10) heat and shock resistant rubber or plastic needs to be ergonomically comfortable for the user when holding. The wings either side of the H are the +\- controls
