    So Wismec sent men a squonk! A luxotic. It is like the Pico Squeeze. Same kind of hard bottle. It's five clicks on and off. Comes with a MTL style RDA (which I took off for a Odis V1). Vapes nicely. The mod is Ultem and SS - well a gunmetal colour. The panel comes off to insert the battery like a mech squonk but the insides are very clean with a battery ribbon. Only been using it a half hour. I will talk more about and have some pics when time allows.

    I'm pretty happy with this little bugger so far though. It's called the Luxotic and looks quite high end. The Ultem panel is nice. if you can around the hard proprietary bottle it is golden. For a daily beater it's a keeper for sure I'm thinking. Jaybo had a hand in the design. I don't want to say too much. I'm guessing around 50 watts is max. Like the Pico. Comparing the two (if it holds up) I would probably take this first as I like the looks. It's a bit taller than a Pico but it is still pretty small.

    Aren't i a lucky bugger. First squonk Ie got to review and I'm stoked!

    Congrats. I look forward to seeing more about it.
    Since I became a Luna-tic and got two of them, I'll be on a Vape gear diet for a while.

    Bottle drives me nuts. It is dark and I cannot see the juice level. Squonks great with the odis V!.

    That looks pretty sweet.Looking forward to your review.I just hope Wismec didn't use the same crap 510 that they put in all their mods.

    Just watched a Jaybo vid talking about the concept of that mod and he actually bragged on his Turbine RTA....
    Remember that thing?

    Maybe I will be more impressed with the mod than I am with Jaybo...

    That was my first thought when I heard Wismec was going to roll out a squonker

    I don't think Jaybo is that great of a designer. But he seems to think he is.

    Yep my impression as well and a big part of why that I am not impressed with him.

    They will have to pull a rabbit out of the hat to get me to buy anymore of their products. Every Wismec I have bought has stopped working.

    It was free. It is not bad but it has a few flaws. Bottle is number one. Same as Pico bottle. Hard. And it is niot see through - shiit. Is it full or empty?
    It does squonk well though and no leaks so far.

    I bought a new mod today. Not a squonker,but one I've been eyeballing. Eleaf Invoke. Tiny dual battery regulated mod. Local shop picked one up for me since the local distributors got them in. Here it is next to my pico squeeze for size comparison.[​IMG]

    Armageddon?
    That's one of the hardest hitting little plastic boxes I've got, and I have a bunch.
    It's a good deal...
    The only issues I've had MIGHT be worth checking:
    1 - it has a slow seep at the 510...a little liquid that gets under, and can wet the actual fire point. dab paper in there and see if the contact point is wet. Just careful not to mangle the 510 - those bits are silver PLATED...
    2 - Battery connection. Some batteries fit a bit loose, and may not be making a solid connect.
    But both those have made firing spotty - then I fix, and it's back to a solid hitting mod - I haven't had anything get hot...

    Armageddon v1 don't think they sell them anymore though. They've moved on to v2 like everyone else.

    Well, I couldn't decide between the two I liked and my wife, the voice of reason, chimed in and suggested to get both. Good husband that I am, I listened to her.:vino:

    The craziness that is called NarDa lol

    Guess this is one that will kill my yearly budget to ever own...

    Haven't even vaped the clone yet to know if I really want to hunt the authentic...but my god so expensive lol

    People are even selling just the deck for insane amounts of money.

    I piffed out my NarDa clone.
    Was a decent enough vape just too tight for me.
    Never made my eyeballs roll around or anything though.

    Kept my Odis atty clone though. A bit more open than the NarDa and just as flavorful imho.

    I have a clone coming in the next few days... along with some Haku Clear Slam caps that I will end up polishing.

    Not chasing another RDA or anything...truly like the few I own now and happy with them. Haku/Stumpy/Hadaly... Sometimes like trying different is all ;)

    Piffed out my Hadaly clone too.
    Liked the Odis atty better than either of them.

    But then I am a bit strange :)
