    @chohan , I know you like your Cyclones, have you looked at the Igo-L? Same looking deck only a 22 (or so) mm!

    I feel confident they could do an episode on me. Guilty as charged.

    I think actually I did a while back but frankly, I've got my bases covered on mtl rdas. Finding myself gravitating more and more toward dl style. I've gone from 70/30 mtl/dl to more 50/50. Falling more and more to the darkside. Just point me to an og haku phenom for crying out loud.;)

    I still use 1 CV for when I am doing rough work like mechanic work. The Timex of vapes, takes a beatin and keeps on vapin.
    But yes Squeezes have pretty much replaced the CV's. I have 3 Pico Squeeze's now. 2 DB2's and 2 DB160's. And a couple of Disguisers with squonk kits if I really need them :) And I have 1 DB2 which I can fix, just need to get a switch to fit in it. Dropped it and broke the tactile fire switch.
    Might pick up another squeeze or two.
    Plus I have about a dozen regulated mods and 6 or so mech tubes.

    Well, Nicotine River had a sale at Thanksgiving that included free shipping....so I got 5 gal. each PG and VG. I have a Sub-Ohm edition SMPL mod stashed, a couple of the first DNA 133 VaporShark flasks and several G2s and Slice mods. I don't think that's good for a full episode, but a cameo appearance :vino:

    Thats a lot of PG/VG. a gal of each lasts me over a year.
    got some in the freezer along with many 120 ml bottles of nic and lots of flavorings.

    Believe it or not I have been piffing out lots of my stuff that just did not suit me and I do not plan on using. Sent out over 30 bottles of flavoring the other day.

    I was seeking and now I have found for the most part.

    I usually mtl when my wife is with me so the Cyclone is a favorite but Nuppin and now Haku are in full time use! BTW, I have the @PaulS suggested setup, the Pico Squeeze and Hadaly, a great one to keep in the car!

    I couldn't resist! I know it will last for a good long time but I like to try new flavors when I have the time. I've pretty much found the gear I like, I'm just a couple of VA Cyclone and a couple of Haku's away from covering my immediate gear wants.

    I was there a year or more ago. I have found that I like a slightly restricted LH at maybe 30-35 watts.
    I have kept trying higher wattage cloudy things and just not me.
    So pretty much single battery mods and single coil attys for me.
    I think I am about as far towards the dark side as I am likely to go.
    I still vape a Subtank Mini V2 RBA daily for around 2.5 years now and really like it.
    The factory coils suck but the RBA is nice.

    Not quite but I have reached a plateau of satisfaction that I will likely stay close to.
    I have piffed out most all of my clone RDA's I went thru in the last 1.5 years to find what I liked best.
    I will keep a couple Goon 22's a 22 Tsunami and O atty and a few more but I ma pretty much a wasp guy now. Like the STM/RBA I have used for over 2 years now.

    Aye, same here... restricted lung, 30-35w. Perhaps that's why I enjoy my entheon and hadaly so much.

    Hadaly is a bit too restricted for me. For me a Wasp on 1/2 to 2/3 open is perfect and wide open when I feel rowdy :)

    As I get older boring is not so bad either from time to time. Beats the heck out of the manufactured drama that seems to be the thing now.

    LOL yep have 2 of those and 100 of the little coily thingys.
    Pure vapocalypse stash stuff.
    Although I may PIF one to Lucy?

    Darn Todd caused me to get those, well that and they were dirt cheap.
    LOL both are squonkified and not horrible just not great vapes.
    I actually like them better than Velocity minis.

    have a couple of those too. One is actually the V2 authentic.

    No, thanks! I'm good with the Nuppins and Haku, well, OK, Hadaly too! The B2k is a back-up but I can't say I'm crazy about it. I'll take a Nuppin over a B2k any day !

    Do you have an authentic phenom Bear? Give me dibs if you ever want to sell. I will trade you an authentic haku cruiser straight up or buy it outright.

    You got the dibs, but I gotta tell you I really like the blasted thing. I got the SXK clone first and when I had a crack at the authentic, I took it. I am ordering another SXK, they are very close to a 1:1 i think. I will keep an eye out for you, juust in case!

    Aye, same here... I have the clone phenom and the og cruiser and to be honest they vape identical but I can get a couple more pulls on the cruiser before squonking. The phenom was the one I was chasing on the list though, not the cruiser. Perhaps I'm not a cruiser type guy... that's why I ride a cafe racer instead of a harley.
    :D Thanks for keeping an eye open.

    Since these things evaporate so fast, if I see one at $100 or so, I'll get it and pass it to you. :cheers:

    Something lovable about an old boxer but since I don't wish to derail the thread again, I'll just take a vape and go run some more cable. Working all night sucks after being off for the holidays.

    Yep about the only real difference is the dogleg down in the airflow.
    Which imho will be a negative thing.

    Yes I know Lucy, always with the negative waves :)

    Well Stimy Vapor v6 , with switchfet arrived , has some flaws , some fiddly bit
    But works well ,
    Front sqounker button , installed a lolly stick on back of front Sqounker button gives it a bit more length to push on the bottle crude but works , ,
    Small size
    82.5mm x 47mm
    Has a different sqounker cap a slot and collet that fits on the base of 510 ,
    Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
    Has an oring on underside of 510 , one in cap , so it dont need to fully pressed in for a seal , half round silicone bottle ,
    2 down sides the button could of been deeper / longer so wouldn't need a lolly stick in back
    An the bottle cap can pull off some times when removing the bottle , if pushed full-on it can touch the board / switchfet , ?
    These can be fixed by using a standard sqounker bottles an tube to 510. , An a lolly stick so not perfect ,

    Vapes very nicely has the usual protection and on off 5x clicks from a Switchfet
    Frame is 23.4mm wide , 24.2 with doors on , so 22 fit well 24mm fits but , looks better with 22mms ,

    Running VTC5 cell @ 4.18V ,
    So little voltage drop , tested with smok volt ohm checker
    Led colours show voltage levels of cell , change as volts drop , green blue then red which lights up under resin panel a little brighter indicating batter needs changing before board cuts out , [​IMG][

    for accurate voltage drop test measurements must be made under load.
    One at the atty while firing and one at the battery when firing.
    the difference is the mod voltage drop.
    a .1 ohm resistance has NO voltage drop at no current or just a few ma to run a meter.
    However a .1 ohm resistance has a 2 volt drop at 20 amps.

    3.41 at the atty
    3.83 at the battery contacts.

    Just took those measurements on a pulse BF mod with a .2 coil in a Wasp.

    So the mod voltage drop is .42 volts....

    the total voltage drop between Neg battery contact and neg post on Atty = .1 V
    the total voltage drop between positive 510 pin and positive atty post =.06
    So total atty drop could be considered .16 volts.
    But this includes the drop in the connection between the atty and the mod 510.

    so at best the Pulse BF mod has a .26 V drop in the mod not counting the atty to mod 510 connections.

    this is at 17 amps. Using a VTC5A fully charged at 4.19V
    With no atty on the Pulse BF it reads 4.18 volts at the 510 while firing with NO atty.

    Edit rechecked drop to atty. on the negative side it was .02 from the negative battery atty post to the negative portion of the 510 inside the mod. There is a .14 volt drop between the negative battery contact and the negative portion of the 510.

    This places the Actual internal mod voltage drop at .39 volts.

    4.17V on cell when just checked on charger,
    still awaiting them to fully charge
    So .15 different on pic ,
    was 4.09 , on first press or 2 before camera focused so it drops quick each press since cells not fully charged yet , [​IMG]

    Second pic ohms [​IMG]
    Will try volt meter on battery contacts an such later not got one with me at moment

    Still not accounting for battery sag.
    and what is your atty resistance? Must be fairly high. Batteries sag to 3.8-3.7 at around 15 amps.


    My measurements on the BF are accurate.
    It is a matter of measuring at various points in a series circuit to check voltage drops at the different places.

    Not picking on you Benley but the generally accepted method of checking mech mod voltage drop is garbage.
    One MUST read the voltage at the battery and at the 510 while firing with a load to get an accurate voltage drop.
    And as the current increases due to lower resistance coils the voltage drop WILL increase.
    As will the battery sag, but they are 2 separate things.
