    Also, I think I got the last matte black Dreamer on 3F for $47 bucks. In talks to get a matte black Bonza or Recoil Rebel. I'm thinking $25 bucks max. Hell of a setup for under $80 either way!

    That looks like the included one. PM me and we can work out the details! I'm at work until 7 tonight Eastern so it may be a few hours until I respond. Thanks!

    The Bonza doesn't get much attention anymore, but that's a great RDA. Likes big builds though. My profile pic is of myself chuckin clouds with my first Bonza a good while back.

    That looks awesome! I don't remember the name of it, but is the shade of blue similar to the one you have already?

    Have you seen the Topside Lite? Very cool looking IMO.

    Btw, @~Don~ I picked up a couple Molicel 20700s today from IMR at $4.99 each. Shipping was $7 but I thought that was pretty good. May have some 21700s at a good price too if you're in need.

    Those are great batteries. I have a few. I do think the Sanyo 2070C is better for mechs though.

    I have hear that, haven't tried so I can't say. Why do you think so? Is it a higher amp more mah? Idk the spec's. I use the Moli in mech squonks all the time, but I never build below .19

    Thx!

    I have 14 30Ts ... thinking of ordering some more though... can never have to many batteries.

    Think I have 12 or so P26As in rotation for the Double Barrel and Dani

    I am a believer in available voltage over available mAh... long before Mooch did his comparison posts regarding this exact topic.

    So higher volts to start? Or more volts over a longer period?

    Harder hitting means basically less internal voltage drop when it comes to batteries. So what Don said. Available, or usable voltage.

    Higher rebound voltage til battery swap. The lower the IR = just that.

    No one vapes a mech to 3.2v which are what mooch tests his batteries at... mech heads swap out much sooner, more akin to 3.7v

    Those are great batteries too. As much I LOVE LIW, I couldn't resist the price for a couple pairs of VTC5D from IMR. I don't have them yet.

    Exactly. I rarely get below 3.6 or 3-7. And yes, sag is the right word for internal voltage degradation under load. My mistake.

    Ah ok. Getting outta my realm. I will fully admit I'm not a battery guy so to speak. I just don't over charge/discharge, don't pull over rated amps, and if they do as they should after that, I call it good. I guess thinking about it, I have never used a battery I would give a bad rating. That said, I have always stuck to the top brands and higher recommend ones.

    That’s a good way to go about batteries anyway.

    Get the best available to your needs.

    If .19 is your lowest any 25a rated battery with the most mAh and lowest IR would be prime.

    I just pick the lowest IR, for more times than not, Mooch has rated them the best performer (Mechs)

    Totally agree while sub ohming, for me anyway. I'm usually done at 3.6-3.7, start to notice the difference. But I also squonk mtl a lot on mech's with .6-.8 builds, and I am usually down to 3.4-3.3 before pulling those. Idk, maybe I is weird? :confused:

    If I do go below that, It goes in a dual battery regulated parallel, so I can split the load. Maybe over cautious, but I'm a guy that is happy at 17w for most of the day :)

    I love reading battery talk though, helps me keep in touch with what i can do if I want.

    I still MTL with my Dvarw... whopping 14w with a coil .7+ I use the Molicel P26As... I tested it on the Dani mini against my 30Qs and I noticed hardly any difference... the 30q would sag below the 3v cut off but show 3.3v when I’d charge... P26s would sag but when placed on the charger be closer to the 3v cut off I set.

    The available voltage let me run down closer utilizing the available mAh where the 30Q would not... hence no real appreciated difference although one is 400mAh more.



    Like I mentioned, best for the way you vape with lowest IR...

    Thats a whole nother question I got. I have a couple of Dvrwa clones. I hear so much love for them. They are really hard for me to get right. When not right, unusable. When right, they are just ok. I could probably rattle off 20 mtl set ups I like better. Makes me wonder, are the authentics that much better? Did I just get bad clones? Or even at my best, am I still not getting them right? I have given them a lot of tries, really want to love them.

    Do you have the full airflow insert set? That can make a huge difference. In not you're stuck adjusting your build to the airflow

    The Dvarw clones are very comparable to the authentic, air flow is a tad different, but not dramatically different, or at least in my opinion.

    I tried a bunch of coils and I honestly use just plain round now in the Dvarw, simple 28g N80 2mm 5.5 wrap resting 1mm above the air flow insert (1.5mm) and it works a treat for me at 12-16w...but...

    I’m not a MTLr at heart, prefer a draw much looser, but I do enjoy it and have no issues with flavor with the clone or authentic, but I did get all the AF inserts...

    I bought a few other MTL RTAs and just couldn’t get on with true MTL

    You can always order a full set from FT! I use the 1.0 or 1.2 (can't remember which) in all my Dvarws for a proper MTL. I think I have 28/38 or 30/38 claptons in my setups.

    I use the 1.2 pretty much exclusively with a Ni80 26/36 clapton, 5 wrap, spaced, 2mm ID. Perfect for me!

    I saw these a bit ago when they were showing them off... I along with a few others agreed the fire button location was a deal breaker.

    That and Sunbox... means it will break ;)

    So curious if the US1-V2 RDA will allow the Goon V1 cap to fit correctly... ah fuck it I should just buy another C2MNT at least I know how this works voltage wise.

    There is absolutely nothing out there for Black Friday I truly want... minus the Aegis Boost

    Okay mech heads... constant contact switch worth ilthe extra 20 bucks on the Dreamer? I like the idea of it but I'm not sure if it would be an improvement or if it won't make a difference
