Haven't seen you post in a while.

Their website is still up, pretty sure they are. With the impending doom upon us, get what you need while you can.

I've ordered from Fat Daddy a few times with the most recent being a few months ago. I got my stuff including a couple NC upgrade kits. It may take a few days to ship though and you won't get tracking, but it will show up. At least my stuff did.

Apparently, the button from an authentic Simpl tube mod will work too. I bought a clone, but the threads are different.

Yes, Fat Daddy Vapes still have the upgrade kits and the upgraded jumper bars

Well, I didn't get any response to my emails, but I did get my stuff. I'm just telling you what happened with me.

I ordered, got no confirmation, no word on anything, no response to my enquiries about that and a couple weeks later, my order showed up.

Excellent! Enough people must've complained so that they stepped up their game.

I know that Fat Daddy (I can't remember his real name) has had some health issues and his son I think it was, is running things.

Good quality parts for the money. I also got a couple of those bottom contact bars and some magnets which wound up in my Cherry Bomber.

I am also in Michigan btw. What are are you from?

Yup!...I am glad that He was still in the game,I might have to try getting a few 510s for a few mods I have been foolin' with...Maybe get some magnets for My first mech mod,a Caravel tube mod...I'm East of Ann Arbor...

Well EJS won the race!...But the winner was a dud,all five of the mini volts showed up,but every one of them are D.O.A. And can only be returned for store credit...Sucks because I was going to gift them to fiends and family...I'm gonna rip one open and see if it's just the battery or the wiring/board...Where's My torx bit at...

Yee Haa! I pulled one apart and the battery was dead,I Put the it on My charger tossed everything into My li-po charging bag,in case of battery boom so far I have checked three times and it is charging! It's up to 2.4 volts after an hour and a half...The other four are on the usb chargers and one has shown life!... Maybe I will get lucky!...

Yup!...I know the mini volt is an old mod,I bought one when they first hit the vape store by Me,I spent more then for it than 4.99!... Well it's not a total loss,I have all of them charging and all 5 are lit now! I think by them setting in some warehouse for who knows how long they just needed a good charge... at .5 amps it's gonna take awhile to charge the 1200 mah batteries...I did call EJS and told them about My problem,and the person was nice and I told Him I read the return policy and understand no returns/credit only on clearance stuff,but in reading the conditions,one stated it must be unopened,I asked ,how can You test if it works if You don't open the packaging?...I have another order coming from them first of next week and it's clearance stuff too,hope I don't have more problems...We'll see...Z...

Not to give you any shit, but that is why i will never buy a mod with a built in battery.
The price was worth the gamble for you i guess.
Hopefully it works out for you.

***Update!*** The mail's in!...Vape mail that is,I am glad I bought the upgrade kit for My N/C I had a fresh set of Sonys waiting!...I swapped the parts and loaded the batts...I am happy as a fat kid eating chocolate cake!... And I have two kits so...I load more batts,one with the parts from My N/C and the other with all Fat Daddy parts,Wow! They both kick clouds!...And a plus,all of the mini volts a fully charged and working as intended!... I'm convinced that it was money well spent and would recommend the upgrade kit as a great mod in itself You don't need to own a N/C to enjoy this mod,and for the price it rocks!... A side plus,They look like a freshly mint Penny!...Now I have to clean,wire & wick up a few attys...Z MAN...

I have to agree. Especially if they are an old model that has certainly been sitting in storage for a few years.

I've bought a couple dirt cheap that were only a year or 2 old and they were ok. However, both also use standard batteries that can be replaced with a little work. The Ijoy Katana takes an 18650 inside. The 2 I got work fine, but when the time comes they can be taken apart and it's pretty trivial to spot solder another one in there.

The Ijoy VPC is designed for the odd sized 20350, but will also work with an 18350 and simple homemade adapter. That one has an actual tray. You just take it apart and swap the batteries.

I paid under 10 bucks apiece for those and use them all the time. That was worth it.

If it's a LIION or a LIPO pack or in some other way totally unservicable, I have to pass.

I've been happy with everything I've gotten from Fat Daddy.

Do you have any other hybrid tube mods except for the one that came with the upgrade kit?

Just thought of you and decided to come back and ask whatever happened with these Mini Volt mods. Are they working well?
