    I wanted to start this thread for two reasons. Number one, I think the owner of Squid Industries has a great story. Number two, I have had this mod for a few days now and I think it's an absolutely phenomenal mod so far.


    Let me give you the story first. Eric is the owner of Squid Industries. He is an operation Iraqi Freedom Navy veteran. After coming home, like a lot of vets he struggled with problems such as substance abuse and homelessness. He wound up pulling himself up by his own bootstraps and getting a BA in Psychology. He then went on to start a bunch of nonprofit groups and made helping veterans a priority. Soon, he got into vaping and developed an affinity for the vaping community. He taught himself how to make custom mods and became quite popular in our beloved community. With the help and support of some friends he formed Squid Industries and came up with the Double Barrel mod.


    Like I said I've had this mod for about a week now and I absolutely love it. Even though I am what I would consider a TC vapor I still cannot help but love the way this mod vapes. It is a power mode only mod. It has a really quick ramp up time and it is extremely simple to use and operate. It kind of reminds me of my Hexohm V3 but with a screen. The reason I say it reminds me of the Hexohm V3 is because of the simplicity, ease of use and quality construction. All this thing does is vape well. I will be doing a full review in the future but here are a few pics in the meantime. Everywhere I've checked so far this mod is sold out. So if you are lucky enough to find one definitely jump on it because it is a real high quality piece that I have really been enjoying.

    Wow, Jack, that mod looks well built, really beefy. How heavy is it?

    It's deceptively heavy for its size but no where near over the top heavy. It's got that heft that exudes quality.

    I'm sure. I know it's hard to say with no scale of reference, but the in the pic looking into the bottom of the mod, the metal looks pretty thick. Looks like you could run over it with a truck and not hurt it.

    It definitely feels like that. It feels great in the hand. Like two mech mods were welded together.

    Gotta agree with everything that's been said. I've had mine about 2 weeks now, and it's all I've been vaping since I got it. I did have one minor issue that was easily fixed: my fire button popped off after about a week of use. Looks like they are glued on, but I guess my glue joint was somehow imperfect. I emailed Eric at Squid Industries, and he literally replied in like 30 seconds (not exaggerating). He suggested using something like Loctite two-part epoxy, which I happened to have on hand. Took like 2 minutes to re-attach the button and now is as good as new. I'm loving this device, and it's easily worth every penny of its asking price.

    With the button off, that looks like a pretty rugged switch.
    I've had mine one day and I've completely forgotten about all my TC mods.
    I finally found a dual batt mod that is pocketable.

    These are definitely the smallest dual 18650 mods out there. The mods themselves are well made. I purchased 1 of each color and was lucky enough to win a custom version this past weekend. I can honestly say after using yihi chips, DNA, and everything in between that this is the only regulated mod I carry. I’ve been using it for a month now and never reach for any other mods.

    Referring to your only "con" (25 mm overhang) in your review, there is virtually no overhang w/ a Crown 3.
    The C3 is "a 25 mm tank" (at the glass) but the base tapers down to ~ 24 mm, so it's a good match/fit.

    Soooo... no cons at all then! :)

    Yeah but to be honest I absolutely hate the C3. Probably why I never put it on the DB. The one I got both coils leaked badly. That thing is boxed up and on the shelf already. I did say even with overhang because of the tubular shape most 25mm tanks don't look bad.

    Quick pro tip.....
    These are hard as %*$# to find right now. All the sites say Sold Out or Pre-order...

    BUT... :) if you live in So.Cal, Vapor DNA has them in stock right now at their Torrance B&M.
    The Vapor DNA website shows them as "out of stock". That's the warehouse count.
    Don't be dissuaded by that... make a phone call, you might get lucky... ;)

    I've got several of em and none of em leak. Mebbe you got a bad one.
    I urge you to give it another chance. When you install the atty, torque down on it as you screw on the base.

    I have had a couple coils go south in like 3 or 4 days
    but the only way I have found to make it leak is to leave the cap off too long while filling.

    Yeah I appreciate the tips but TBH I am pretty much done with Uwell now. After all the coil problems with almost every tank of theirs I'm over it now. I just think there are other companies that do what they do better and with more quality control on their coils. I love my Ijoy Captain Tank. One of my favorites right now.

    I'd like to try one but I won't buy any tank that doesn't have SS coils. <You listening China?!?:gaah:>
    Gotta have me stainless.
    I learned that lesson with teh Beasts'es. Everybody loves em... but to me, tastes like hell compared to SS. :xD:

    There's some weirdness in the retail Captain CA2 coil's description online.
    The .3 ohm Kanthal coil head is described as "2 x SS Coil"...
    It appears this way everywhere online indicating (i think) this 'spec' came from the factory.

    Can you 'splain this lucy? :)

    Just a quick look at the black DB V2.1 w/ the PeaceMaker V2 I made thanking Eric Buss of CEO Squid Industries. I’ll post the custom DB as soon as it comes in. In this video I used 20g Kanthal basic 7 wrap 2.5mm 0.14Ω

    Coming from a military and tactical background, I love Squid Industries. :bliss:

    Eric Bess's background, story and his donation of all sales proceeds to our veterans is amazing and heartwarming. But Eric is one f*in" bad ass. A very happy family man, but one not to be messed with.

    I am all a flutter over Squid. I have been staring at SquidVape to get a DB v2.1 mod but I'm unsure of what color, Black or the Champagne Gray When this happens to me, eventually my cart grows double in size. I really like the Peacemaker RTA. Think I'll get both SS & Black. Why Champagne Gray, I wonder with no identical atty color? Perhaps the iodized SS wasn't the right hue.

    The TAC 21 mod is out with some minor differences/improvements, particularly to the screen and it's taller.

    The Squid King mod is due out soon. And the Squid Chief RDA is already released. The King is supposed to be bad ass. So I'm holding off on the TAC 21.

    Someone on one of the Squid forums had to sell his custom DB for a family emergency yesterday. OMG, it was insanely gorgeous! It looked like clear blue rifts of water done on a black DB. She got it for only $300.

    Here is an awesome review Batman did on the DB v2.1. Raved about it.


    Let's keep this thread rolling with updates. :cool:

    By the way, Batman is rockin' a Pirate King RDA on it. Another amazing piece of hardware. There is the RTA which of course I like, but it has nowhere near the character of the RDA. It's truly dope.

    See Batman's videos on both atties.

    Lol, yup. It's funny looking on small mods but I love it. Right now it's on my MinV2 with lots of overhang haha. I got a mad modder on the way though it's should fit well on.

    Ohhh. You got a LE!!! I want a LE or Custom. I was going to place a huge order last week but went to the ER with unusual chest pain. I didn't have a heart attack or stroke. But they told me to cut out the PG. I've been resting and eating healthy, like a keto diet. Been very tired.

    So, I didn't get my order in for an DB. Boy, you have to have the FB group on 24/7 in case someone puts up a custom or LE. I missed out on 2 customs last week.

    Did you get the PMT also? That tank chucks. And its great to know it takes BB coils. I think he designed a RTA but I can't remember.

    Love Eric's designs and products. LOVE his story and his cause. He PMd me in FB about my order and he is such a kind man.

    If I recall, they recently put out a new mod that will hold 40mm.

    I've not heard of that. I know the TAC 21 will handle up to 28mm, and my Scotua The Tank V3 doesn't look too bad on it even at 30mm.

    I wasn't referring to a Squid 40mm, but of another mod.

    I realize the TAC 21 will hold a larger atomizer. But do you find any difference in performance to that of the DB? Indeed, it looks rather nice!
    I rather not discuss performance of one over the other in the FB group. ;)

    This is a thread about the Squid DB. It's safe to assume that when you stated "they recently put out a new mod that will hold 40mm", you were referring to Squid Industries.
    Not really. In fact, I think the electronics are the same.

    Hmmm. I'll have to check the measurements out. I'd like to begin a collection. For some reason I gravitate and can relate to Squid. Perhaps it is my tactical upbringing.

    I adore the DB. I would like it in all colors. Hard to get the OD it appears. The kits are back so have a few of those in my cart. I'm hoping someone will pop up and post a sale for a custom that I can get to in time. They sell in just minutes.

    I have the original 2.1 I got last July. Still going strong. I've used the Crown III and my Kennedy 24 three post attys on it. Feels great in hand like a mech. The click wheel is easy to turn so I usually lock in the wattage and not worry about it. Battery life is great.

    I'm SO looking forward to receiving mine. I got one of everything. Actualy two. Beautiful pieces of work. I'm still looking for the elusive OD. And of course a LE or Custom.
