I too think its outstanding that you gave @Kfirrer a Go. Just outstanding and IMO Vivant has been very attentive and friendly to the community.@Kfirrer that is fantastic work!
Although as a manufacturer we do not recommend doing this for many reasons with the biggest being puncturing the Li-ion battery which can be very dangerous. I am sure you are aware of this but this is a general note for everyone who wants to tinker and customize. Make sure you have the knowledge and research with a thought out plan before tearing things apart.
That said your project is very creative and we want to send you a new Vleaf Go for your efforts. I will message you here.
We are in fact working on a box style Vleaf Go (2/pro?) with a removable battery very similar to your work and some of the comments here. Still in the early stages.
A question for you and everyone here is what would you like improved and changed on the second version of the Vleaf Go? Specifically bigger battery capacity/removable or more power? We will also improve the mouthpiece cooling. Let me know what you guys think as this product was made based on a lot of feedback. We will try our best to improve it while keeping the device affordable. -Vivant R&D
I too would like larger battery capacity and replaceable would be outstanding.
I do not want dual batteries. This a small, light, budget friendly portable and I would hate to see it grow into a heavy and much more expensive device.
So, I feel the same about adding display....kind of want to keep it simple, light, and cheap.
Yes, the MP def needs improvement, IMO, and I think Vivant can do this easily. Basic form is just fine...I like that it fits a water rig without any adapters and I like the pen clip/poker type thingy. Just fix the silicon air cooler and mesh/ring and I would be fine, personally.
My only other comments were on documentation and I have provided them already....quickly, they are; 1) document stealth mode...that one had me going for a bit and; 2) document the temp change correctly. Double click gets you into temp change mode and does not, the first time, change temp. Once in temp mode, then subsequent serial double clicks cycle through the pre-set temps.
Please do keep it at the same or similar price point. I think this is important and I really enjoy having a decent vape that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
