    It will be interesting to know, after you use that for a month or so, if the parts that attach with magnets get loose. That's what has happened to mine.

    Is it too restricted for you?

    I can't really say what it is about it that I don't like. Maybe it's just the comparison to some of the other rdas I have now. O-atties are kicking ass with parallel and staged coils, the Morphe is incredible no matter what I put in it, and I have fallen head over heels for the Asmodus C4. Actually all my other rdas are vaping really good right now, so by comparison, the gr1 is just meh.

    Hopefully I'll have better luck.
    I won't have to worry much about the squonk cover, I got spoiled using refill bottles so that cover will rarely come off.

    I officially got rid of the LV Drone, 5 days was enough to know that the door popping open when I squonked just wasn't going to work. My last 2 squonkers have been a real disappointment (Rebel 2X 21700 and Drone) My new Triade is on it's way so I'll throw an rta on that until I find a regulated squonker that's worth the money. I still enjoy my mech squonkers, but they're not a viable option for long shifts at work.

    I usually use a refill through the 510, no mess and easy peasy

    Get a Topside! I have 2 and they have been my daily carries with the 10ml bottle and a 21700 battery.
    If you like higher power it might not be your thing but if you vape around 50-60 watts it should work for you.

    Yep, I vape the Topside at 45 watts, it will last me most of a day, not chain vaping naturally, but it's a damn good mod with a huge bottle.

    The juice up the drip tip is what I'm not to partial with. But may be my coil placement. Or too much squonking

    The Tobhino did that to me. Really nasty. I stopped using it because of that.

    Wrap looks pretty good in real life, darker than the picture shows. SXK Haku Venna, acrylic coated ox horn tip.

    It's from a company called Vapor Skins or something. J-wraps did not show the Topside. Also had to do a little cutting/customizing of the wrap to make it look not so 'cheesy'.

    Got a Meraki!
    LOL - he was clearing these out because mostly he's making $400-$500 stunning stabwood mods these days.
    It's a nice little box with a "wave" - thus the name..."Wave".
    Sporting a Hadaly for now. Nope...Hadaly is still not quite enuf air for me. I just don't know yet what I want to put on it!
    Also have orange door and button. :)

    Derp - Amateur Hour!
    New mod was a little anemic...
    To it's (or my build/wick's) credit - not dry hitting, but not as juicy as I like...
    Diagnosis?
    Didn't diagonal-cut the bottom of the tube - it was perfectly sized by the vendor - and snugged right up against the bottom of the bottle! It was barely gettin' squonked! And hard to see, cuz all black...

    Also, already ditched Hadaly, and now running DpProMini. At least until I can free up a Haku or more likely a Flave22 with a black cap.
    Might try a "Reload S". Supposedly, it's a Recurve ripoff but with more air...

    We gotta get you a black wrap for that battery! Carbon fiber look would be perfect.

    I think jwill is coming up with something music wise. But definitely needs a wrap

    Okay old time Bonkers - was there a trick to changing the Wismec bottles with the stock Pico Squeeze bottle?

    Bought the bottles to do this about a year ago and never got around to it till now, lol

    I wish that one was a 21700 version. The last few in the Vape City section have been 18650

    But the 18650 is so small and tight and really hits hard ...

    Okay, have used it enough to know. The U.S. 1 V2 will be atop mods most of the time. Plan on buying a glass/metal top cap for it. I would almost buy one of the decks off Trinity Glass Hardware, but $50 is $25 out of my price range even for an atty I really desire. Might be able to see paying $35, which is $10 over my high price limit for atomizers. Reckon I'll buy the clone decks via FT, but the glass/metal caps from Trinity Glass. Spoke with my wife and she agreed, told me ... "you'd only be paying for a name". The clones if not 1 to 1 are very near that. I think now there's a three way tie, Gorge, NaRDA, U.S. 1 (a.k.a Trinity/Trinity Deck). I still like the Wasp Nano minis but it kind of takes a second place, maybe even third.

    So it's like:

    1. Gorge/US1
    2. Wasp/NaRDA

    These can be swapped around too based on my mood, preference at the moment. Like keeping myself on my toes. Today, I was named Henri Hauser & I worked as a private investigator. I think tomorrow I'm on the billet to be a surgery doc named Samuel Salim. Wednesday I get to be the mechanic Fred Flagstaff. Thursday, back to my unit as John Jones, fireman and ordnance handler on a ship. Friday, Tim Thomas the shoe salesman.

    One of these days I'll figure out what I'm doing for a hobby, what I do for fun. So far, can't seem to figure it. Reckon I'll just stay busy, pass out when I finish at something, go back at whatever it is the next day. If you see me run by in a bit, tell me to wait on me at the rock by the creek. I need to catch up to myself.

    Vape City is a used/refurbished section under accessories on ecigarettes.com they have some really good rare and high end stuff sometimes.

    Prices are in Canadian dollars but he ships to the U.S. This is the guy's shop who made the B2K RDA

    So, you are Always Alliterative?

    VaporRange has the US1 V2 Trinity version in purple, of all things, for $29.95 with free shipping. No idea if you'd want purple, but I saw it, so I'm letting you know.
