USB Variable Voltage Mini Passthrough - Chrome
Aww, how cute! A mini USB Passthrough!
A USB Variable Voltage Passthrough with an extra long 45" USB Cord
(Can only be used connected to a powered USB port with 510 connector and eGo threading.)
Vape at multiple voltages!
Plug into your USB port.
5 presses advances you to each voltage level and lights the appropriate LED light:
Purple (3.7v) and
Green (4.7v) (not all computer USB ports can output this value)
Not for use with low resistance cartomizers. Please use 2.0ohm and above.
All selectable via pushbutton. This is NO ordinary passthrough.
This passthrough will work with any standard 5V USB socket on your computer or laptop.
I love these things, but they do have one issue. After a month of using mine, the cable on the bottom detached a bit, leaving the wires exposed. That's not as dangerous as it sounds, but it's something to look for. I am constantly getting mine stuck under the wheel of my desk chair so that probably had something to do with it! They do not have a holding knot in the base, so check it occasionally. I fixed mine originally by sliding the cable back up in and then when it came out again, I added a drop of superglue (because I am cheap! :) LOL!) So be aware and keep an eye on it. If it happens to you, break out the electrical tape or superglue.

works fantastic I have used a lot of pass through's and this is the best, use a little super glue on the cord hole where it goes into the pass-through.

It rocks. I made some really hot coils that won't work on anything below 4.7. This passthrough will burn those coils with no problem as long as it is plugged into the USB in my truck. Won't work on my computer unless i change to a normal store bought coil. I didn't give the wires a chance to pull out, given the other reviews here I shot a good dose of hot glue where the wires entered the housing and I haven't had any problems. I drive a truck and this mini hangs from overhead storage and makes vaping convenient and safe for me.

This is a neat little item if you are at your computer and waiting for your other batteries to charge. This is not a take with you passthrough. It only works while plugged into a computer or laptop.

I was using a 400mah mini-eGo when in the car for stealth, regulated 3.7v, but the vape still gets somewhat puny as the battery depletes. This passthru is the perfect solution! As suggested, the 1st thing I did when I got this was put a drop of Krazy Glue where the cord enters the device to prevent it from pulling out, seems to be holding well. Note that if this is used with a USB car adapter/port (or wall adapter), the adapter needs to have a minimum current output of 1 amp (1000mah), 500mah won't cut it - found this out when it wouldn't work with my car's built-in USB port. It's simple to use, I love the variable voltage (without a twist) option, and the cord length is generous, almost 4ft. For the low price it's a handy, well functioning, stealthy little gizmo!

Just got mine. It rules, big time. Been waiting since after they sold out last time so this one is from the most recent stock. Cable doesn't seem loose at the bottom at all, but time will tell. I should have gotten 2.

This is long but read it...
I make my own coils and 100% cotton yarn for a wick. Have built my own and purchased direct 5 volt usb pass thoughs in the past.
The problem with the manual/direct passthroughs are that my portable batterys 650mah mini-x9 and "The Bolt" w/ extention for 18650s run 3.2-3.7 volts.
At 5 volts I would cook my attys in an hour, I tried to wind high ohm coils, but it really blows to try to keep track of which atty is which on the road or when trying to be discreet. With this I can wind all my attys the same and vape worry free.
Hint: I got a portable mophie juice pack power station pro, 6000 mah 2.1A phone charger from the Verizon site. Plug this bad boy into that for days of vaping... clip the battery to your belt or carry in a shoulder bag/back pack. Great for biking, hiking, camping, where ever discreetness is not an issue. I've passed it off as a medical inhaler device at security check points with no problem. They let me take it into the International Auto show in Detroit ---(I would keep it stashed in the baggage through TSA airport security though...unless you want to risk an awkward search by the guy with a uniform, unless your into that... ;)
As to the comments about USB voltages... If your PC (or any USB port) doesn't output 5 volts pretty consistently, it is really broken. You need to have at least (you may be able to get away with less) 2.1A rated port. Read the fine print on the adapter or your PC documentation. a lot of cheaper adapters are 500mah-1A. Many of the Quality home/auto adapters are rated at 2.1A
I have never found a PC USB (direct on the PC, not on the back of the keyboard or monitor) that didn't work.
I dont know for sure, but someone mentioned PWM (Pulse Wave Modulation), that's a great solution. Arduino geeks, get some properly rated transistors and write a sketch for a premium full featured desk unit w/LCD diplays etc... GEEK ON. See Youtube for an example.
Wrap the cord with electric tape, use epoxy, superglue, hot glue, or whatever preemptively and you wont have to deal with any of the mentioned issues. Yes they could have built in the stress relief, but get over it. Sit down at a work surface and be careful to be neat and not pump the case full of glue and you'll be fine.
Eric has been hands down the best Vape vender I have ever dealt with. Replied to emails promptly etc.

I love this pass through!
I like most will sit at a PC all day at work , then when I get home I am on my pc. So what a way to not dealing with dead or dieing battery and having my vape sessions.
Variable Voltage and always like using a fresh battery!
The only bad thing is , you cannot plug it into a standard wall plug with USB, it only works out of a PC. Was very odd. I have not tried it on a car adapter, but from the other review that works too, so that just bumped it up to 5 star , worth the purchase. Just as the other review make sure you secure the cord and I suggest treating it very gingerly for a long life. I been using it hard for couple weeks, and decided to buy another as back up
I found that Discount Vapes is one of the best. Excellent customer service and the prices are Sooo Great!! Truly a wonderful first purchase experience, and will my goto site for vaping accessories in the future

I love this thing, especially when sitting at my computer or my car. Works great on the computer as well as a car adapter.

I've had passthroughs in the past....but NOT VV and EGO threading....Very nice!!! Save batteries for going out. Haven't tried the EGO connection yet...but nice to use 510 or Ego. Glad I purchased it!!! DV has excellent shipping and prices!!!

It's a great device for me, as an indoor vapor I find this device to work great for me, the only.issue is that the cable is indeed kinda lose in the bottom, but that's nothing that can't be fixed with some silicone.
Posted by boneskull on 30th Dec 2013
This thing is great. Look ma, no battery. I work from home and sit in front of my computer all day so this is perfect for me.
The only caveat, like mentioned, is that the wire attachment to the body is flimsy. I immediately noticed this and reinforced it with electrical tape as a precaution.
Have had no button-related problems.

Great for when my ego-c dies or when Im @@ the desk or in the car for long periods of time. Works great and is good quality!
Posted by Jim Collier on 26th Dec 2013
Well I used this thing for a week and then the button pushed in and fell inside the case so for about a dollar a day you can vv vape it til you break it

I took the advice of Eric and other reviewers and secured the cord where it enters the unit with a bit of two-part epoxy. Works like a charm, and it's very convenient not to have to use up battery life whilst in the car or at my desk. I also like the variable voltage feature. Just a tip, I tried super glue first, and it flowed inside and managed to cement the button to the body of the unit, rendering it unusable :(. Eric was very helpful in replacing that unit (at a steep discount, I only paid shipping), but I do recommend steering clear of super glue. Great price for a great unit, and the best customer service on the internet, IMO.
Posted by Jan Marin on 2nd Dec 2013
For the price, this is a great unit. It works great when plugged into a computer, allowing me to vape comfortably whilst at my computer. The cord can sorta slide out of the bottom, but a spot of hot glue would seal it into place.
My experience in purchasing this item showed me how DiscountVapers shines when it comes to helping a customer. I received a faulty unit, after emailing DV, I got a prompt reply and a fresh unit in the mail the next day. The service here is courteous, friendly and patient, making DiscountVapers a gem amongst thousands of cold, impersonal online retailers.

I put a drop of super-glue on it as soon as I received it, and its been working great for about two weeks now. It works just like Eric says. I use the 3.7v (purple) on my long wick T2's with Tennesee cured juice. Great Vape. Saves on my batteries. Quick shipping as usual.

I really like USB Variable Voltage Mini Passthrough. Great price would recommend it.
Posted by cy on 25th Nov 2013
It works great. The wire does come loose almost immediately, but easy to secure with a little krazy glue.
When I screw on a clearomizer, if I tighten a little too much the unit fires without me pressing the button, otherwise no issue. Great to keep in the car or at my desk.
Saw where one review said they really only have 2 settings...I didn't find that to be the case at all. Tried with several different clearos at all the settings, and there was absolutely a difference in each setting. Most of my clearos worked best at 3.6 or 4.2. The 4.8 setting was too much power for any of them. Got them on sale for under 9 bucks, about half what I saw them anywhere else.

loose wires you must glue them or they will pull out other than that it works great some instructions on how to adjust the voltage would be helpful.
Posted by Brian Isaac on 24th Nov 2013
I am very displeased with this product. After a week of using it, only used about 4 times, the chord at the bottom slipped out exposing the wire, then when i tried to fix it it just stopped working all together. Maybe i just got unlucky or something but i am very unhappy with this purchase. Everything I have ordered on this site is the highest quality and works great for me, as i am a returning customer. But this product just doesnt cut it
