    I am an official fan of the SXK Billet Box clone. I love mine. Use em every day.

    I also don't get the point, unless it's to kinda stick it in the eye of BBV, I disapprove.

    There's not even a business reason. They sell like hotcakes already. And for good reason. It's a solid 1:1 clone.

    I just don't like it

    To each his own, man. Honestly, the only reason I would need the USB is to charge on the fly if I didn't think ahead and to flip the backwards screen that SXK refuses to fix for some reason

    Yeah. I could care less about the USB as well. So to Cloners listening, this is exactly what I WANT: No USB, all the writing, 60w is plenty, and 40 bucks! Got it :wave::D

    Forgot to mention I bought a Limelight Arch today. Should be here sometime next week and will take the Tell clone's spot on my XvoStick with my second Xeta in it.

    Todd did a nice review for it, too. [​IMG]

    Imagine if you bought matchy matchy shit for cigarettes, how weird that would look.

    I have this red filter tip, clear poly... my cigarette case is made of ultem and my lighter case made of delrin.


    Be laughed at, but the peeps in West Hollywood would cozy up to you saying, "One of us" lol

    Think I might bite on the Natty GT... Really want a simple drop in coil loose MTL tank.

    CDV has them, and the 4.5ml tank, 3ml glass tank options available.... ends up being like $79 DHL.

    Wish it was readily available here in the States... maybe need to do more google-fu... would save on the DHL expense

    I considered that myself but the DotAio takes them so I already have that same option essentially.
    Looks like a great little tank for the price!

    Finally got my DNA SXK BB and I’ve been using it for two days now. Immediately after I got it I sealed it to protect the DNA chip. Although I heard that it’s lacquered, but I thought that it’s better to be safe than sorry.

    Compared to the original BB, well..it’s a clone and you can tell. The differences are not in performance since they both perform equally well. But the front panel for example does not sit tight. It seems the magnets on the top left and the bottom right corners are higher than the other two. Also, the gasket on the boro tank are clearly of an inferior quality. Don’t get me wrong once you slide the glass fully upwards and you manage to straighten the gasket out it makes a perfect seal, but it’s a bit fiddly to get closed properly.

    Also while the right side of the firing button merges smoothly with the curve of the cover in the original BB, this is not the case with the clone. The button’s surface is not flush on its right side with the curve of the cover, but goes slightly below it.

    Overall it’s a very good clone that could have been better with more attention to details, and quality control.

    The button thing is because of the convex shape of the door.

    Did you try the original panels on the clone? I only ask cuz it might not be the mod but the panels. I have many aftermarket panels, and they all seem to sit differently on the mod.

    My black SXK panels that came with the mod have that same thing where the button protrudes on the outer side. All my other ones don't. Including the clear SXK accessory ones. If you look at it with no panels, it's straight.

    Actually you are partially right. The curves of the original are slightly less pronounced than the clone’s. The button still protrudes however, but to a lesser extent. Also I’ve been thinking that this may have to do with the difference in the shapes of the buttons themselves.

    Yes you’re right. The original is less curved than the clone.

    New from Box Mod Mafia. I'm not interested but thought you all might be. It's called Stash Box it has a small opening under borrow to stash stuff. Looks cool if you are into the burrow thing.[​IMG]

    Check you 510 nut for condensation too.

    Do you have this issue with any other RBAs or bridges?

    Only way I got it to work was with a 2.5mm coil and no inserts at all. Running at 18 watts, direct lung.

    I've also had no luck with any juice that's less than 70vg.

    Yuck, I won't use them if that is my only option. My mixes are 65vg, should be close enough. I do have 90vg and max vg, I guess I could try that.

    I wonder if it has something to do with chamber and how the juice condenses in it. I get some liquid from the DT every 5 or 6 pulls. Annoying but the flavor is worth it for me.

    To be honest I get that same buildup in all my MTL RTAs.

    I agree and get some, pretty much on anything that takes a 510 dt and not 810. For the ones I like and use, it's not that much and also think well worth it for tge flavor. This is more than that. Enough that it is gurgling on pulls and is pretty nasty, also drastically reducing vapor, cuz well it's just juice :confused:
