    So there's a group buy in a Facebook (insert wailing and gnashing of teeth here) group for the Tobhino. $15 for each color except gold, which is $20 bc it comes with engraved black and ultem barrels

    I have a Furnace and KRMA each on the way, but for $38.50 (gold and purple versions) shipped I'm not sure I can resist...

    Being out of work for surgery recovery is so bad for my GAD (Gear Acquisition Disorder)!

    I'm getting a couple - wasn't going to until I noted that they come with an 810 adapter...that makes it more interesting to me - also increases the possibility that the thing will be airy enough for me.

    Speaking of which - how's the KRMA? Airflow compared to _____?

    Not helping!

    Not sure on the airflow on the KRMA just yet. Should be here Thursday... I've heard it's more open than the Basic 1.1 but that's all so far. I plan to use it on an unregulated mod so I'm going to build it around 0.2 if I can.

    Well I was in love with my dpro mini but can't get rid of spitback. Really bad right after squonking. I think it is the raised deck where the squonk pin is. I sanded pin down even with the deck but still doing it. Pisses me off love it other than that.

    I am happy to report that the bicarb paste, made from baking soda and water, left inside for about 12 hrs, and then rinsed out 5 times with warm water, seems to have removed any traces of the stanky smell inside both the included plastic and the Luxotic silicone squonk bottles.

    I am using the plastic bottle right now to see how it is, and letting the silicone one dry out for a while.

    I want to see if pulling and filling the plastic bottle is less fuss for me than unscrewing the RDA, threading on a refill bottle, and then reversing that process. If I can get along with the plastic bottle, I may order a few extra, since so far it seems to do it's job just fine and is not too hard to press (unlike the bottles that came with my Lost Vape Drone, that I sold off, which were very very stiff, and bought an 11ml Therion BF silicone bottle which worked well filling via the 510, especially with the air valve in it's ring at the top).

    Again, thanks to everyone who replied with suggestions and shared their own methods.

    I went with the baking soda first instead of the ethanol or harsh chemicals (bleach) because I've had good success in the past with baking soda removing smells from things before.

    I may have to invest in a cheap ultrasonic cleaner. Any recommendations for a reliable one, preferably from Amazon (so I can use Prime for free shipping)?

    I just got this one yesterday. Cleaned mostly jewelry and eyeglasses so far. Seems to work well so far.

    Put my autofiring Pico Squeeze in a zip lock bag with 99% isopropyl and then put that into the cleaner, but unfortunately it's still autofiring.

    Thanks for the reply. However, I do not see a photo or a link in your post. Please advise. Thanks :)

    EDIT: sorry, actually Privoxy was blocking it for some reason, but I see it now. Thanks again.

    Glad you got it sorted...


    As for using the Silly Cones over the Hard...not much a difference til you put the bottle back in... the hard plastic ones wont spew juice as you push it back...

    To me if you utilize the Silly Cone ones, a refill bottle is the way to go... once its in, leave it.

    I commented on how the Silicone ones can benefit from a tad of shrink tube to make them absolutely sealed to the rubber grommet... for they are imo not a direct replacement, but a good one... plus with thicker juices I think the pressure of squeezing can lead to a leak...where the tiny bit of shrink tubing fixes this.

    I have some pictures of it in this thread....started talking about it on post 34686 on page 694 when I was utilizing the Modmaker bottle...works the same for the Luxotic.

    but yeah... using refill bottles above 22mm diameter, you will also be removing the battery cap.

    Thanks for the reply and info. I found the post you referenced:
    http://vapingunderground.com/threads/squonkers-are-bonkers.183977/page-694#post-2107477

    I have lots of PVC or rubber heatshrink from my electronics/soldering kit that I could use if needed.

    I'm just getting down to the last 1/5th of the juice in the (included) plastic bottle now, and it seems to take way more pressure to get any juice to come up. When I pull it to refill, I am going to see if there is a leak.

    I have a short & stubby 30ml refill bottle that is hard plastic similar to a Modmaker refill bottle ($9 on Amazon), but the cap is all metal and not insulated. I have to either pull the battery, lock or turn off the mod when refilling so make sure I do not short the 510 by accident. This bottle works well if filling into a silly-cone squonk bottle because it is harder than the silly-cone and squeeze pressure works better to push the juice out against the lesser elastic resistance of the silly-cone squonk bottle.

    If I get another refill bottle, likely it will be silly-cone, and a taller, thinner one similar to the 30ml unicorn bottles (like the Geekvape Flask refill bottles), unless I get one of the Wotofo refill caps, and a PTE bottle from Harbor Freight which fits the Wotofo caps. (there was a video someone shared a while back that has the details on this, but I dont have the link handy right now)

    My guess is the Wotofo refill caps will require me to remove the battery cap and battery on the Squeeze, but I am not sure of their diameter at this point.

    EDIT: typos

    KRMA arrived today and I built it with a 26/36 Ni80 fused clapton that came out to 0.35 ohms. Airflow is buttery smooth, flavor is great, and it was an easy build.

    Flavor is about a hair away from matching the Basic 1.1. KRMA has more airflow but can be shut down... I'd say the airflow wide open is very similar to my gold standard, the Hadaly. Restricted lung hit perfection, IMO.

    Build quality and machining are excellent. Came with black and stainless caps, and black delrin and ultem DTs.

    Rocking it on my Cloud Lab Xmod and I think it looks classy as hell! [​IMG]

    I swapped the battery when I refilled. The battery wasn't flat. Always do.

    Kewl!

    Thanks for sharing :)

    Please tell me, if you can, compare the air flow to the Wasp Nano...

    Can you make it a tighter draw than the smallest on the Wasp Nano? i.e., is there 'overlap' in the amount of air, or when you start with the KRMA wide open, is it much tighter or just a little tighter than the Wasp Nano?

    KRMA airflow wide open is equivalent to a Wasp Nano closed down about three quarters. Much tighter and that's a good thing, IMO.

    Flavor on the Entheon is on the same level, especially with the Hadeon caps. You're in for a treat, my friend!

    I prefer less airflow so the KRMA is a perfect fit for me.

    I was lucky to score a used OG. I hear the SXK clones are really good though... I almost went that route instead!

    I have two of the Ulton clones. Love the air, flavor and ease of building. Easily my favorite atomizer.

    IT'S ALIVE! After an extended soak in 99% Isopropyl and several trips through the ultrasonic cleaner my autofiring Pico Squeeze is no longer autofiring! That means the ultrasonic cleaner is already half paid for! :giggle: :vino:

    Filled the UC with water, then in a smaller separate container put the Pico in with pure ISO alcohol, then put that in the UC. First tried with a small ziplock sandwich bag and that didn't work out too well. Next tried a small glass jar just big enough to fit the squeeze in and that did the trick.

    I used straight 91% Iso in the USC lol... no basket...just dropped it in, ran it for 2-10 minute cycles and hit it with the air duster to dry.

    In the local retail grocery store near me, the store brand of 91% ISO is $1.99 for a 32 oz bottle. That single bottle alone is likely to fill the bowl of the ultrasonic cleaner that @RSZ1 linked in another post, especially after the displacement of the liquid with the Squeeze in the bowl.

    ISO is cheap and available locally, but replacing the Pico Squeeze means buying from China and waiting 2-3 weeks if you are lucky.

    If it were me, I'd use as much ISO as I could before giving up.

    I reclaimed the ISO and put it back into the container... bottle is clearly marked Reclaimed and only to be used on electronics (Picos and DNA200s) lol
