    It's the only place I have found that stocks the 8w top cap and the price + p&p is why I haven't ordered one myself.

    Hi @Raguri.. as clint has already said the 8w 18500 tube when used with 19b head will work as a 18350 mod. I've done exactly the same thing but have used the 8w bottom button.

    However the 18500 brass iching tube does not work the same as it is a longer tube than the 8w 18500 ( assume the top and bottom button on the iChing are shorter than on the 8w hence the longer tube )

    I have bought the iChing 18500 brass to use with a 19b brass head and a 19 brass switch but am going to have to make a spacer for it, have got 18mm dia by 15mm length M6 nylon spacers from ebay and some solid brass M8 bolt to thread through them to make a spacer .

    Once i've done it i will post up some pics.

    I was looking at doing this but there's no vent hole?

    thats the advantage of using the 8w switch instead of the 19 switch ...

    The 8w switch has inbuilt vent holes..

    Well managed to get the iChing 18500 tube to work with the 19b top cap and switch.

    Had to make up a spacer to get the 18350 battery to fit.

    Gave it a quick polish and am chuffed with the result.

    Did you leave the hot spring on the top cap?
