    Built myself a 510/Carto-Volt meter... came out well :)

    I use the Bruce which doesn't have a display of any kind, so if I want to know exactly which voltage I'm running at (3-6v) I need to bring out the multimeter...
    Last night I remembered reading about a quick and easy volt meter inside a carto tank... so I made one

    So easy to do! All you need is the Boge F16 (I got mine ages from from VK), a carto to rip apart and solder your $2 volt display ($1.93 0.36" Display 3-Digit 3~30V Voltage Tester for 18650 Battery - red LED at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping) to, stuff it all into the carto tank, and voila!

    Less than 5 minutes of work for an awesome device-

    Now that's really very cool! Got some of these volt meters coming, ordered about 2 weeks ago, but I'm not a fan of cartos so I'll have to get one of those cartos tanks. really like what you've done, on ya!

    How well does it work for PWM devices?

    I'll go chuck it on a Vamo and see (Y) Be right back

    Results:

    Vamo: Does not like
    EVOD: Does not like
    Provari: All good
    Bruce/Duke: All good
    Smok Natural Mech: All good

    Not surprised. Now, padawan, do you want to know why not, and how you can make it work?

    I'm assuming because the Vamo pulses a higher voltage at a rate to reach the desired end voltage and the volt meter can't keep up, whereas the mech mods deliver straight DC?
