    Lol, the vt thread is huge now and covers many topics. This should make it easier for LB topics.

    I have no way of measuring. What I can say is my Aromamizer Supreme(s), Merlin, Griffin25, and Billow V3 Plus all sit flush.

    This next part is just my opinion.:
    I have quite a few Hcigar mods so I like them. I have 2 x VT200 and 5 x VT133's. I also have 2 x Lavabox DNA200's and the LB75. I think the Lavabox (Volcano) are a step up (not a huge step or anything like that). The VT75 Nano seems to be having issues with the battery cap threads from what I've read (They are very fine). Again this is just my opinion - I'm very glad I waited for the LB75 and I'm already thinking of getting at least 1 more. YMMV.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    They very much have problems, love the look and feel of the nano, but I am concerned when I need to take the battery out, as had to use vice grips to get the battery cap off and on again, and not the threads are fine, they are shit, bit disappointing from HCigar.

    So yes I expect the LB75 to be a step up :)

    I just was reading about the fine threading. That would be a real issue if it got cross threaded. I'm starting to lean way more to the LB75. Thinking of the Blood red, but need to make that decision tomorrow morning with coffee

    I think so also. Thanks for your help. I no longer need any pic comparisons unless others may want them to compare the two.

    Well got mine, but my excitement for the lavabox has been let down, mine has imperfections, from light scratches on the screen, scuff at the top of the device and worse a chip out of the screen cover, guess some would say I am nitpicking, but expected more to be honest.

    I wouldn't call it nitpicking. That chip out of the screen come would bother the hell out of me.

    Anyone have any pics of the blood red lavabox with a stainless steel tank?

    Any recommendations on a screen protector for the screen side of the device? I'm thinking of a generic cell phone screen protector but I think it might be a pain to get the button cut outs right.

    They have great customer service! I am sure they will take care of you.. Was the screen protector still on the mod?

    Yes the screen protecter was still on when received it, couldn't see till I took it off.

    Being all black, it isn't very noticeable, unless hold it at the wrong angle, was a bit disappointed to start with, but now using it, it feels good in the hand, really like this rubber type of battery door :)

    Nitpicking? No sir...That is not what anyone would expect from Volcano. Surprised it passed any sort of inspection. I could except a lite paint chip, but the chip out of the screen no way I could deal with that. If the screen had minor scuffing it could be polished out if you know what your doing. But that chip. I feel your sorrow.

    Nope the 22mm, was tempted by the 24mm, but heard the flavor wasn't as good as the 22mm.

    Okay thanks, I was going to say that mod is huge if it doesn't even sit flush with the edges.

    Iv been planning on ordering a Lavabox M since I first heard the rumor of it! Well, these days I dont have much money and really wanted to try out a DNA 75, so I ordered the SMDA 75W for $45 last week. I still plan on getting the Lavabox M though!:D I like the 18650 model 75s so I was looking at the HT75 Nano but I heard of a few people having problems stripping out the battery cover threads... I'm "Hoping" since DJsLabs helped with the SDNA 75 that it will be a decent one like iv heard. The Encom Beast dual 18650 looks like a nice DNA 75 as-well.... Ah, such little money and time lol :eek:

    I would really like to get an Evolv DNA Custom but they are $150 for the 60-75W and a long wait time.. But for the quality repair service from Elvolv it would be worth it I think..

    Got the blood red 75 in the posty yesterday. This is a much nicer device than I thought it would be. The plastic screen has a little flash on the edges, but nothing to complain about. The finish is great. The battery door feels good to the touch. The magnets are VERY strong. The battery is a tight fit, too tight. The dark screen cover is difficult to see outdoors, but I rarely need to change anything once it's set. The best part is the weight, or lack of. It's a real pleasure to use this mod. Have it set up with a tempered ni 200 coil @ .08 20w and 434 temp on a Kayfun V3 plus... perfect.
    I was concerned I had made the wrong color choice. When I opened the package, my concerns disappeared. It's very nice looking in the blood red. Very pleased with this purchase.

    I really like the Blood Red. I have that and Black in the DNA200 LB. When the 75 was announced I was just waiting for the Blood Red. I bought it on the day it was released. I'm glad you like it! :cheers:

    Cheers,
    Steve

    I really love it. Super high quality. I may need to get the twin big brother someday:D
    Sitting here watching the Skins playing the Jets have me thinking that Volcano needs to make a golden colored door for these:rolleyes:

    I think you already snagged the Skins screen I made for BA. If not, it's in the VT133 thread. Let me know if you need it, I can PM it to you! :cheers:

    I plan to get the blood red later on, red never been my color, but that changed once got the VT75 nano, I am having to push back ordering the blood red lavabox, as couldn't turn down the full size red VT75 for $50, but it will be in a future purchase for sure :)

    It was the least I could do my friend. I'm vaping the 28, 36 SS Clapton as I type (7 wraps, 3.0mm :)). I don't even have a SS430 atty in rotation atm. BA is one of the nicest people on the forum! He sent me the wire at his insistence along with some other SS Clapton and NiFe wire to try! Can't thank you enough! :cheers:

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Edit I think he's trying to convert me to Claptons and doing a fine job of it :D:giggle:

    I may just need to get a white door and experiment with some goldenrod color paint. Maybe leave a thin white stripe, and the rest golden. Hmmm. To the volcano site I go.

    Nife, I'd like to try it as long as I don't get it from crazy wire. I went through hell to get my order. Never again. Any state side vendors?

    I'll let you know if I make one and it looks good. I'm sure you'll want one also.

    I have a weird schedule. I never really know where I'll be one day to the next. I think your schedule is the same. I'd feel guilty for you to go out of your way to mail a sample to me. How bout I let you know next time I head to the burg. I'm sure I'll be in your neck of the woods within a week or so.

    I'm going to need to contact Volcano. They show the doors, but not listed for sale that I could find.
    Ha, close, just needs to be a shade darker.

    Good point, PM incoming.

    Strange they list as in stock, but nothing on volcano's site yet, think I will wait for them to be on volcano's site, as probably order the blood red lavabox m at the same time.

    If they have a labor day sale, then I won't be able to say no, even though my poor credit has been beat up lately :)

    The price they have with the tenoff would most likely be all Volcano would do. Same difference to buy from the beast. Not sure about shipping, didn't look.

    I think the DNA200 sleeves are $9.99, the 1300mah extended sleeves are $10.99. That seems lower than I would expect (I was thinking $7.99-$8.99). I'd probably check with the Beast asking them if they are authentic Volcano covers and why the picture has screw holes in them (should be magnets).

    For me, the Black battery cover looks best on the Blood Red. I'd like to get a Red sleeve for my Black DNA200 Lavabox though. Just my 2 cents. :cheers:

    Cheers,
    Steve

    I agree on the black on BR. I do want a white to try and make a Redskins theme. Might turn out to be a mess, but i'll try.:crazy:
