    Looks like they had Limited runs of colored G10. Found a link to an orange one on their site via Google, but it takes you to a 404 page.

    If you landed one of these and got the DotShell I think you'd be a happy camper. You can take build deck out without draining the tank

    Yeah a G10 DotAio would be kind of cool... not a fan of DotMod (Mechs) always thought they were Imperialistic China color ways... and just gaudy (not a fan of shiny gold accents...

    But yeah, the G10 would be tits...


    looked at the DotShell... seems it would be the perfect single plain wire setup for long battery life... build a simple 28g N80 2mm 5/6 wrap .68Ω coil at the first wattage choice and be golden.

    But odds of me grabbing one that isn't the G10 is slim to none... don't like to settle for what aesthetically isnt up my alley

    Well I found a Black G10 with CF panels, but yeah, not even close to being worth the price associated

    upload_2020-2-13_12-7-5.png

    Even saw different color tanks for them lol

    The GunMetal color is ok...

    I like the aluminum ones but that gold button drives me nuts. Apparently you can change it but I don't know of any makers for them yet. They just put a gray G10 one up but it sold in minutes. Couldn't even see a price.

    So is the DotAio really any different than the much cheaper Ohm Vape variant...

    Looks identical besides the pot dial and branding

    I read somewhere that the Ohm Vape one is the manufacturer for Dotmod and they got approval to release their own similar AIO. All the extras are compatible... I'm using the Ohm Vape RBA and tank in my DotAIO currently

    upload_2020-2-14_8-7-28.png

    I love the design and function of it all, but it's just too big for my taste. If boro devices were all I used it would be a nice desk mod. No way that brick would fit in my pocket.

    It seems that BMM is one of the few companies really sticking with that 3D printed trend. That may be fine for mech squonks and small devices like that, but for me once you're asking people to spend that much you need to provide better materials for my dollar.

    Just my two cents

    I fucking hate Verizon

    Wife is so product loyal its sickening.


    So today we went to Verizon, needed a sim card for an iphone 6s I bought, give it to the father in law as a replacement... he is on our account anyway, and switch to the unlimited plan, add the Military discount... WIN!


    But no... they added an ipad to the account... and said it was free... I was like WOOT! RAD!

    Yup, not the case... even after I asked, " how is it free? doesn't seem practical to be giving ipads away"

    Bitch replies...

    With your Military Veterans discount its applied each month and the fee is waived.

    I'm like, " Mother fuck, sign me up, shit...waived fee deal."

    Its a sack of lies.


    So I come home, check the account... we have a monthly charge of an unlimited Data Ipad 7th gen on the account now and charging us an extra $50

    Mother fuck fuck lying ass mother fucks...

    I go through Verizon chat... explained to the guy named Wendall...

    Ok Wendall, strap in, not very happy with Verizon atm and I will explain.


    Explained and he said... take it back, there will be a return fee waiver, the ipad is taken off your account... they will charge you a restocking fee, but I'll credit your account whatever fee there is.


    TL;DR... ipad is off account, fees credited... but lying ass bitch basically got Verizon $150 and a credit to the account is not a monetary loss to them. Sure we were credited it and its basically the same as reversing a charge... BUT ITS NOT!!! I don't have that $150 in my account lol


    We've been with Verizon, long before it was Verizon... even shows on our account 22 years (Verizon was founded in 2000) Verizon bought out our old carrier haha


    Yay fun day...

    I was livid to the bitch ass lady... she even threatened to call security.. I laughed at her and said, " You think they can get here before I get behind the counter? Call those bitch asses and you will see a calm man go postal.

    Her eyes just went into fear mode, and I said, "Its ok... we've been with verizon longer than you've been alive.

    I mean I told her she just lied, and she tried to flip it and say, "I asked you twice if you had any questions"

    Cunt I fucking asked you if it was credited and you said yes, and its now no, fuck off lol

    It's all that way now... cell phones, internet, cable. Hell, even Grubhub.
    Was going to order out last night and order through them. My wife was looking at the menu of the place on her phone when we realized we could just order direct from them... all the prices were average $1.50 plus per item! So that's another $6 on top of the delivery charge and a tip. Fuck that shit.
    Bullshit hidden fees everywhere. It's enough to make you want to go off grid but that's not even completely legal.

    This wasn’t a hidden fee issue with us today... it was the cunt straight up lying.

    Flat rate fee I’d understand with GrubHub, but a line item fee on top of delivery is retarded.

    When I called Verizon and asked about the Military iPad promo, the rep straight said there wasn’t one

    That bullshit must actually work on most people, I guess. To even have the balls to lie about a military discount or promo... even worse.

    The Limelight Arch is really well thought out. If you have any BB Bridges laying around not in use (aside from the North Bridge) it's definitely worth it to throw them in this tank.
    I have my second Xeta in it now and I'm getting more airflow than I get with it installed in a BB but I still am getting great flavor. Two Shady thumbs up! [​IMG]

    Kickin back and enjoying a freaking tasty local beer and a killer vape after 7 days of work in a row. The DotShell is so damn good it makes me want to sell my Billet, find a G10 DotAio, and load it up with a Treasury sleeve and another DotShell.

    I won't bc I love my Billet, but it really does make that much of a difference. The flavor was killer right away, build was easy, and I didn't need the MTL pins! [​IMG]

    Agreed on the Dotshell, I love mine as well. I wish the mod was VW instead of the 4 settings deal, but a very small draw back for me.

    They vape very good,great flavor,but a leaky mess.I have a clone,but everyone says the authentic is the same way.Odis replaced the V1 for a V2 for anyone who had bought the original,because a lot of people were pissed that they had spent that much on something that leaked so bad.

    Oof, sorry man. Yeah there was a fair amount of discussion here over it early last year IIRC.
    I lucked out bc I'm not much of a DL guy outside of a couple tube setups I have.

    Odis offered a refund for the V1 or a discount on the V2 and Flow 2 bundle. It was a shit shoe to even get that from what I understand.

    I'm sure there's got to be some small mods you can do to make it usable, but I'm at a loss as to what they would be. Good luck and I hope you find a solution!

    I saw some attempted mods on the v1 that helped some, but the consensus was that there really isn't a way to stop the leaking. I don't remember the details now. There's some posts and I think a video or 2 around the web.

    The only place i can tell for sure is the seam where the top cap goes on it.A semi fix that helps is to put a strip of teflon pipe tape all around that seam after you put it together.It will still most likely leak some,mine did,but not nearly as bad as without the tape.I dealt with the leaking for several months because it does vape very well and the flavor is very good.
    The only reason i stopped using it was because i found a good deal on a used authentic V2,i got it for $55 shipped because the glass was broke.When i got it,i used silicone to fix the glass,and it was perfect,same great vape as the V1,but never a drop of leakage,but the glass looked horrible.I spent close to $30 for 2 unbreakable panels from Dnv,and guess what,it leaks worse than the V1 haha.Now i have to shell out a stupid amount of money to get the glass from Odis since he is the only one that has it,it'll cost me probably $50 or more for 3 tiny pieces of glass.

    I'd almost seal whatever "Window" there was for it permanently, tap a small fill hole and get one of those rubber plugs like the VapeSnail and call it done.

    No idea, can shoot them an E-Mail.

    Although the 8/8/16 cut off covers the Rev4A, not sure if the Rev4B was before or after that date....

    Well looked at BBVs site and they have the 4B on their blog posts before 8/8

    Now I guess it’s up to them to prove it and submit the paperwork and fee

    They restock every Saturday morning between 10:00am and 10:30. They also announce which colors they'll offer on their FB page a couple days prior.

    They go pretty quick so you'll need to create an account in advance, be logged in, and have your credit card info copied and ready to be pasted when you checkout.

    Sometimes they add more anywhere between a half hour to an hour after theyve been listed as sold out. Keep checking the page just in case. That's how I scored my RPG
