Museum of my (ugly) DIY NiMh vapes:
I'm not responsible for any health issues or electrical hazards!
I've built three electronic cigarettes the past few years,
because I wanted to use NiMh-batteries instead of Li-Ion.
The first one was made out of a 4x-AA-Powerbank-case. I didn't
use a MOSFET, the little push-button took all the current:
Pretty ugly but it worked :)
The 2nd one had a custom made wooden case, and the back-cover was
held using magnets, again no MOSFET inside:
Nice look, but the whole thing was far too big. Also the glue failed
sometimes in keeping it together :)
The 3rd version got a smaller, metal case, smaller AAA-batteries,
MOSFET, a better 510 socket, and magnets in resin for the backcover:
Worked well most of the time for almost two years.
After a while part after part had loose connections.
And this was the end, I've found and bought a commercial vape, which
runs fine out of two AA-NiMh-batteries :)
The toggle switch is for safety. Green LED shows: "coil detected",
blue LED: "coil active".
