    You can also use an electric stove elem,ent to generate the heat needed for a nice tite clean wrap

    Good tutorial. I'll just add a couple of things for flat-tops:

    1. Save the plastic insulation ring from the positive end of the battery, assuming it's not damaged. You can re-use it. Otherwise, you'll have to get a replacement ring.

    2. If you're using a blow-dryer, you'll have to hold the plastic ring down with a finger, until the positive end starts to shrink (so do the positive end first). Otherwise, the ring will blow out of the tube, and you might have to use another wrapper and do it all over again.

    Of course it can be rewrapped, you just have to find some shrinkwrap of the right size. You may not be able to find it precut, but may have to cut it to length yourself.
    Look for shrinkwrap on Ebay, in Vape shops and electronic parts shops.
