    Yeah, I haven't tried the flip top ss topcap on mine because it seemed way too tall. The ultem one will take a 510 driptip if you feel so inclined by the way. Though I think it is fine without.

    Anyone know of a small, lightweight single 18650 squonker in the $60-$80 range? Preferably something like the 3D printed ones that are popular.

    Honestly for small and lightweight my preference is the Coppervape, and they are well below your price range. But if you prefer the 3D printed ones, Fasttech has a few clones, I know the Frankenskull clones were popular. Someone else would have to speak to what other ones are available, and the pros and cons of them.

    Im searching for that same squonker..lol

    Seems a simple cheap to build mech squonker everybody wants your 401k to own...i cant see spending that much for plastic and a little piece of copper and maybe some SS.

    To date the best low cost squonker ive used is the Coppervape...if you want regulated the Hcigar VT inbox 75w is going for $70 to $80 with the maze v2 rda from gearbest and FT.

    Id like an Orca or an Octopus but the prices for those are not all that attractive.

    The franken skull clone has a few issues that need fixing but ive heard of them being quite nice after basically rebuilding it with expensive parts.

    The Galactika Hidra clone? well, i got mine and i used it one time..im done with it.

    Maybe that new Icarus from 3f vape will be nice...it has those expensive orca and octopus style looks and construction..if i could change the state on my mailing address at 3f vapes site i wouldve already ordered one to try.

    Not much else for choices really.

    Yeah I should have mentioned that I have a Coppervape BF already. I like the mod but it's a bit heavy for my taste.

    Yiloong has released a variety of 3D printed boxes to the tune of $34.99... strongly considering one but there are no reviews to go on right now.

    The other (way more expensive) option is the Boxer BF mod. $140 for a great looking mod from a proven name. They have clones out there that just got released but they look REALLY cheap in comparison.

    What to do, what to do?!

    One of those yiloongs look like another version of a frankenskull with a gorilla on the cover instead...Havent seen the insides of one as they dont show a pic but i dont know about those yet myself.

    I do like that Icarus clone though...im putting hopes into that one being a good one to keep along side the coppervape for cheap.

    I dont own any boxer mods but i do like my VT inbox and Lost vape Therion 75BF...The VT is my main go to for a regulated squonk..i like it...easy to change battery and fill up and who doesnt like a dna 75 chip..lol

    Happy Dad's Day, Bonker dudes! (& ladydudes)
    Hope everyone is keepin cool? 106 in Central Cali right now... yeawk!
    I've been off the grid for a bit, been full on at work... sold the rest of my 'flavor of the minute' mods around town to friends of friends... most of my attys & tanks too. It feels sooo good to look at my shelf without all the filler, something solid about only keeping what I really love and not having sh!t piling up everywhere. Still waiting on my Tiny Little F#ckr from Germany, its grueling! I've almost pulled the trigger several times on the Facebook squonk classies but I need to be good. For now. So easy to get all caught up in the grip and stop thinking realistically!
    The Vaponaute Le Concorde bf RDA drops on July 4th, kind of an ouchy $140 but it's fcuking Vaponaute (my favorite brand, the LPG is my 'Nuppin' .. I want a drawer full of em!)
    Le Concorde will only be 1000 pieces so the elitist part of me is ttt-t-t-twitching!
    :hamster:

    A heads up if you aren't aware, 10% off for a few more hours at Fasttech, code: THANKSDAD

    Yeahhhhhhh, Bonkers Ice Fishing trip!
    I was born in Redwood City and lived in SF until a couple year$ ago, I'm in Stockton and never missed the Ocean this much in my life, Worse since I work in sailing media! I'm headed down to LA for the start of the Transpac race to Honolulu in a couple weeks, hope it's not like this. The only thing worse than hot ass weather is hot ass weather in fcuking downtown EL Layy.. I think I might just drive the car straight into the sea when I get there!

    Yup, big change from "The City" to the Central Valley. I hope the hot ass weather is done by the time you head to La-La land... Traffic down there makes getting over the Altamont look sane. :wait:

    Don't worry guys, weather in LA is great! Hot and muggy, makes you feel like you never left home. You also have the added bonus that you can see the air but you'll have to chew and swallow it....never mind the brownish cast to it. Being stuck in traffic is a joy to treasure. Make sure you have plenty of charged batteries, lots of juice and the AC in your car is set to ARCTIC.

    Those are nice just not crazy about the big "Boxer" lettering built in...thats what kept me from a regulated boxer mod...too flashy with the brand name IMO but it should be a great mod performance wise non the less.

    More fun rooting through my old shit; found some SS mesh and threw a messy wick into the Thump....
    Mesh is still as fussy as I remember but damn the taste is clean, especially with SS wire and not the kanthal I used back in the day on mesh wicks.

    I missed out on the Molly's this weekend...sadly...But I do agree that the Boxer looks a little loud with their branding...but the rest of it I truly like...especially how the contacts are beefier than traditional squonks out there, less chance imo of dinging up your wraps.

    So twisted on which squonk will be my first...Wait 2-3 weeks for Molly's to come out again...Buy the Orca with MM510 drilled, get a TD, pre-order the Boxer...

    Thus far I REALLY like the Molly and probably second choice would be the Boxer and 3rd would be an Orca. If only money was truly disposable ;) I'd just get all 3 lol

    Just an opinion here, I would get the one I really like. All 3 mods have good and less good point but personally, I have several mods I bought but used once....most have found new homes. It's happened several times when I went and bought the second or third choice because first choice wasn't available only to see one pop in the classifieds literally hours after I made my purchase.

    Exactly. Patience is difficult but so worth it. I was on the edge of buying an Octopus from a French vendor late last night and I just told myself 'wait dude wait, you don't need this right now'
    Went to bed and woke up still thinking about it, poured some coffee and hopped on Facebook the SECOND the admin from Minimal Mods did a flash sale for 8 mods, I did the X1 (my first time, such a weird ritual), no less than 3 minutes later the thread was closed and the mods were spoken for.
    Just super lucky timing but I ended up saving a ton of money and getting something cooler.
    Made me really ponder this new style of buying mods, who knew Facebook would be used (abused) like this.
    Do they do this for anything else?
    Like tickets or other merchandise.. or is it an exclusive to vape geeks??
    Anyway, here's the mod I won. (Won? But I paid for it, ...sooo... winning the ability to buy a mod is where we're at now. So fcuking bizarre, I wonder how long this trend will last)

    But yeah, Brewski is right, hold out for what you really want unless an irresistible super deal pops up. It's when you stop searching for that Molly that she'll hop in your lap.

    Still on the expensive side, but the lower end of the gazillion dollar 3D printed world. And they are alumide with a stone button and a matching stone inlay on the other side, the big perk is they are only £5 to ship from the U.K. I'm chatting with him now and getting a custom navy blue stone instead. probably be like $165 to my front door. Worth it to me to spend a little more on a collector thing and I'm not buying filler or 'I hope this clone is decent' stuff at all so it works out about the same!
    Once you get over the 'it's a fcuking 3D printed plastic box' it's actually pretty fun to see how the different designers have their little styles & tweaks.

    Well, just my 2¢ worth, I have an Orca, a Toaster, copper vape, Franken fake and a few others. I have one of the dual 18650 bamboo mod on the way. I find myself using the TD and the Orca more than any other by far just due to size and weight. They are very easy to clean and I just like them. On the other hand I have a boxer DNA 200 and they are extremely well designed mods. I'm sure the boxer squonk will bee very nice, I will prob pick up one of those eventually. I did order one of the cloned boxer from FT, I'll let ya know how that turns out... Lol

    An update.. I opted for the copper contacts so was $146 shipped.
    And yup, I like the Boxer too dude, Except there's no little doodads and custom doors and buttons. Half the fun and another way to go completely insane.
    I was totally normal until I found this thread of misfits, be careful duuude!

    That's actually no half bad! Seems like it's just as bad as the Billet Box for accessories and whatnot. I'm already down that rabbit hole!

    I saw that in SV''s thread, I would be interested on how it works out for you. I have half a mind (that's all I have left after getting married? ) to order one now. The way my luck is running lately, you'll say it's the greatest thing since sliced bread and by the time I'll get around to ordering they'll be sold out.

    I've got a red & black one (think it's #6). Been my daily driver since I got it in January. For the abuse I've given it, its still in pretty good shape all in told. Only problem It has is the lip by the 510 is warped a little bit which makes the door a little unsecure (it doesn't fall off, even when dropped but there is some play in it. For $70, it's been pretty solid. Design wise, I will say that it needs like another mm or so as the FIB is quite squished in there.

    Buy it from their eBay store (cheaper & free ship) if you get one.

    How about a ultem box?

    Their eBay store has zero mods in it for some reason. Just bottles, cotton, and the like.

    That ultem box is beautiful but a wee bit out of the ol' price range!

    I put a FDV 510 in my Frankenclone, I just haven't decided on what to replace the contacts, I think using fine silver is like putting a $200 saddle on a $10 horse. I think I'll stop by Industrial Metal Supply and get some 16g or 18g copper sheet. I will most likely use one of the MM bottles.
