Yes silver pins give you a very nice increase in power, but make sure you buy the correct pin for your mod
In fact there is an increase in power but it is quite minimal. Silver feels like it hits harder because it ramps up faster ... so you get a full and immediate hit.

Mmmjm the misconception is that 999 Silver IS more conductive than Copper, but when vendors sell you a 'Solid Silver' part they are normally selling you a sterling silver (.925) or 0.96 Silver part. Both are so close to Copper it makes little if no difference.

the contact ramping up faster has nothing to do it with it. The contact's role is to pass the current to the next part in the series of conductors until it hits the coil. these are VERY short parts and the speed of current flow on a 0.5" pin made of copper or silver you wont notice. specially since before or after the contact you have other materials or much less conductivity involved, cant be faster than the slower part (referring to negative contacts in this case)

A LOT of it is placebo, there are small improvements, silver does require a lot less maintenance than copper though unless you live in the coast.

A solid silver RDA pin or solid silver positive post (or both) would be the best improvement

Something like this puppy (some day!!!)
https://www.platinumvapeshiram.com/products/solid-silver-battle-deck

things like the culverin, kennedy and so on rdas you can buy solid silver POSITIVE pin or post, no point on the negative post since what it sees current wise has to pass though the 510 / mod body (aluminum, brass, copper, SS), negative contact

Yeah if you can buy the solid silver slam piece for $4k for a 5%? improvement in voltage be my guest. I personally like clean mods without all the engraving around (the most I can take is the purge twistd or kennedy vindicator)

Reason I'll never buy a pilak, just find the engravings distasteful. Can have all the silver you want but I want a CLASSY design, not some naked women engravings and cards symbols.

This one can be all the silver and all the 4k you want, not for me either: https://www.modernvaporcompany.com/copy-of-purge-mod-slam-piece-black-plague-edition/

The difference between solid pure silver and copper is so minuscule in fact, it cannot be felt on the vape at all. Mooch tested the difference between copper and brass in the Admiral tube mech. At 30 amps, this difference turned out to be only ~0.03 watts difference so people who still insist that this can be felt on the vape are so seriously butthurt they just desperately keep trying to resurrect an old myth; please don't feed the trolls.

P.S. - The reason why the positive post on the Culverin RDA deck is copper is simply because copper gives off the waste heat faster via its surfaces, whereas the positive post this is not necessary because that one has no PEEK insulator so the waste heat from that one is still adequately drained via the side and bottom of the build deck. This same philosophy also applies to the solid pure silver positive post option on the Battle Deck by Comp Lyfe; the minuscule difference in electrical conductivity of the different metal types matters not, but only those who, like me, weren't fast asleep during high school physics class when they were kids will have naturally figured this out. :D (I have a brass Culverin RDA, I have two identical stainless steel Battle Decks that use the silver post, and also I have a brass Battle Deck that uses the regular post.)

Then you've people like me content with maybe $60.00 US dollar kits, $30 or $40 mod and a $30 or $40 RDA. Some of the mid to low range gear can work just as well as high end stuff. Considering that I don't see need to go buy something with this or that logo, that engraving, some bloke's signature, numbers, whatever.

Not when that extra mumbo jumbo adds to how much it costs to attain. Nope I'm pretty firm, don't seem to ever intend on paying over $75 for what I consider a reasonably good kit. To me any more cost doesn't make the basic principles work any better, why then merit or warrant the extra cost? I know there's loads of reason probably, don't care. This is just my opinion, I know we all got 'em, know mine probably stinks. Only tossing it out as others toss out theirs.

My goal is to get a purge mod. Few questions first.

Why so expensive?
What makes them so special, they aren't made out of Platinum, gold or white gold.
They need special care, like polish etc from oxidation.
From drip purge and squonk mods are a lot of $, why?

Are they actually worth buying besides being heavy, special care etc?

Hey man, I have a B2B v2 I’m looking to sell. It’s solid copper and runs on 18650 battery. I used it for a day, it hits like a truck with the right build on it (I used my carnage with a .09-.11 build). I know that 2x700 batteries are the new fad but I can guarantee that I have some 18650 mods that will crush some of those 2x700 mods. My oden took 1st last year in a could comp.

I don't like Purge Mods...

I love them!

I scanned the responses but forgive me if someone already mentioned this but another reason they are expensive, especially the popular ones, is a little known economic attribute known as scarcity.

For example, scarcely a day goes by where I do not oogle pics of Purge Guillotines...
Another example is if @gadget! gifts me his Purge Guillotine, my yearning for another may become scarce.

That stealth Skull mod with the black REV-25 cap on the Retro Fit deck is the one to cherish.
