That is effective! It might be a bit large for some modesl but the technology is basically proven.

Interesting but is the issue with the lipo batteries rather than the smoke unit. Can you power a vaping unit with a regular 12 volt lead acid battery?

I think these vape gizmos ( the big buggers) rely on very heavy current draw hence lipo which lead acid can not delivery

The vape devices are intended to be hand held, so the power source needs to be light, compact and capable of heavy current.  In a boat, an SLA will be perfectly adequate.

Explody issue solved... :-))

So how do these trigger, suction, or press a switch, and it fogs, and user inhales.
If it is switch based, then a small fan should suffice to run the vapor out the stacks.

Watching with interest but I'm not sure it will work effectively as with e-cigarettes the vapour is sucked into the lungs which warms the vapour and then expelled in a great cloud along with about 1/2 litres of warm air. I suspect the heating effect of the lungs has a lot to do with the cloud that is expelled.

I hope to be proved wrong!

Hmmm, At that point, it might be that all you want to purchase is an atomizer and a tank.
Then build your plenum and fan and wire it into the boat.
