    Soft touch coating on ego batteries

    Does anyone know if you can replicate the coating on the ego batteries.

    i have a couple of slippery SS batteries and mods that I would like to add this coating to. Is there a spray coating solution to mimic it.

    You would be struggling to get a coating to stick to the stainless steel without powder coating, which would mean a complete dismantling. There is a chance that you would be able to find some heat shrink tubing that would do the job. Its sold id different colors. Jaycar has a few colors, or buy on line

    I was just lurking (wasting time in the black hole) on pinterest and saw cute lil trick to mattify nailpolish, add cornflour. I wonder if that would provide a better grip.

    Then that made my overtired brain think of chalkboard paint, whole new world!!!!! Imagine the stuff you could write on it! muahahahahaha, "this is not a .........." leaps to mind :P

    Oooh and then what about washi tape? You can get some awesome patterns. washi tape | eBay

    And I wanted to find this Plasti DIP Matt Black Multi Purpose Rubber Coating Aerosol Spray Paint DIP Car | eBay on an Aus site but ran outta get up n go.

    ok, go to bed jen, alright then i will, thanks gnight!

    The above posts beat me to it.
    , but I will post anyway!!!

    After posting, I got to thinking. I have a bunch of tatty 650mah eGo’s that could do with a face lift. I have just done one, with the only color I had that would fit.. I would have preferred black, but?? Fit a little extra length and just trim off the excess. They do sell the stuff with glue on the inside of the tube, which might be better. They do various colors, but no pink from what I have seen.

    If you are very picky, you could always use a kids paper punch to put some panache into the job??

    Is that shrink tube. The ones I looked at was shiney your photos look matt. I might have to have another look at it. My batteries are spinner fat boys so they are a bit bigger.

    As for the pink lucky i am not keen on pink. I am trying for canary yellow.

    i have a patched up canary yellow ego somewhere.
    i used 'truckers tape' .. that stretchy stuff that sticks to itself and bonds together.
    looks like shit but it served its purpose and copped a hard time.

    I pretty much only post in the girly ecigs, knitting and Bella tanks threads. Thought it might be obvious.
