    I was looking for a modshield for my Think Vape Finder 250c, but it seems like they never created one, so I took the chance and bought the modshield for the Lost Vape Triade 250c (despite Think Vape telling me it probably wouldn´t fit), and suprise suprise, it fits perfectly.

    However, the Finder has these super tiny venting holes at the bottom, which gets covered by the modshield. When I look at the modshield that was made for the original Finder, I see that it has a open space at the bottom for this reason.

    Will this be a problem? I know I can just cut out a piece of the bottom, but I don´t want to if it´s not that necessary. I only plan to use the modshield when I take it with me.

    Take a Razor blade and cut it.
    If you don't cut it, where's the pressure going to go if a battery vents?
    In your face maybe?
    Not worth the risk IMO.

    Like @Pastorfuzz said just take an Exacto knife or a razor blade cutter and do a little surgery. You could even just use a drill bit if you could get it to line up. Chances are if a battery vented it would melt that latex or rubber but why take the chance? Good Luck

    Not familiar with this mod but if the battery door is magnetic not so much of an issue for “if” they do vent the door should pop off.

    With that big thick condom nothing is going to pop off.

    Sorry for the late answer, but I think you already guessed that I took out the scalpel and made a little space for breething.

    I also bought a couple of different modshields just to match different atomizers etc. They are pretty cheap so why not..

    However, we are talking about a completely different prince range when it comes to extra battery doors. I dont really like the looks of the battery doors for the original finder (wich also fits the DNA250C-model), but the selection of battery doors for the Triade (likewise both the DNA250C- and 200-model fits the same door) I see a couple of pretty cool ones.

    I am not gonna gamble with this in the same way I did with the cheap and flexible modshield. But if someone knows if it would fit,I would really appreciate it
