    Dual 18650 Box Mod Wiring

    Hey All!!

    Just wondering if anyone can help me out with some links to a bit of info on wiring up a box mod with dual 18650 batts ?

    I have looked everywhere, and all I can find are VV dual batt mods, I am just wanting to do a simple 510/switch/on-off switch/led setup, I have all the bits and pieces and have the hardware set up ready to go, just wondering about the wiring , as in how it should be setup basically!!

    Thanks in advance!!

    Battery connections: +ve to +ve, -ve to -ve
    Battery +ve to one side of the switch, the other side of the switch to the centre post of the 510 connector.
    The outer shroud of the 510 connector goes to -ve of the now paralleled batteries.

    Is the LED a discrete device?

    Sorry for being a n00b - but when you say +ve and -ve is that just another way of writing pos/neg ?

    Also, what do you mean by discrete device ?

    Jumping in because I am bored.

    Yes. Lazy way of positive and negative with visual stimulation.
    Discrete device is an electronic component with just one circuit element, either passive (resistor, capacitor, inductor, diode) or active (transistor or vacuum tube), other than an integrated circuit.

    Edit:
    Here is a link to a thread on ECF with pictures and stuff detailing how to build a dual 18650 wooden box mod.

    There are many threads over there with pics and things.

    OK. Well the LED has a resistor included which I need to included in the circuit I believe.

    Its a little confusing for me, I think I need to look at a diagram to explain to me what needs to be soldered to where... :/

    What Rynxa said.

    If the LED is a separate device, you'll need a resistor wired in series to provide the correct amperage through it ... but that calculation is beyond me (right now)

    batt voltage 8v, led drop 2v (assuming red)
    max current 20mA

    R = 6/0.02 = 330Ω minimum, the led will be bright enough to find your house with .. suggest 1mA

    R = 6/.001 = 5.6k

    so anywhere from 330 up will be fine, much above 10k will be pretty dim.

    Thanks heaps for the advice everyone. I got a circuit made, but it didn't work. Probably due to my terrible soldering skills. So i cracked the shits and it can all go and get fucked now.

    Hey man, dont give up!!!! You have the bits, so take some time out and revisit it soon. Its a learning curve and once you get the basics, its gets easier. Have a beer or two and think about what went wrong. Good luck. (one bad solder joint is all it takes!))
