    I don't remember WHY I ordered this Recurve mod, but I did, lol.
    But it's perfectly matchy-matchy with this off-color Nudge (they both call it gunmetal, but it's more like "metallic olive").
    Huh - the Pico Squeeze is like that too. Maybe in China, more guns are greenish?

    With this and my new Dotmod Squonk, I need another big battery...I think I do have one 20700 on the way, but right now I'm using 18650 adapters...

    If you guys have a problem with Canada Post, I travel to the U.S regularly.

    *Disclaimer* When you have your gear sent to me it must only be high end and said product will be thoroughly tested for safety and quality purposes before it reaches you. Think of me as Consumer Reports for vape gear :D

    Just whipped up 1200 mls of my main flavor. Should be good for a little bit.
    Took a little extra time, as I had to pull nic outta the freezer or make a smaller batch...I chose to "hand thaw," and just do it...

    Still shaking...old school.
    Wanna help? It's good exercise...

    Looks like Eleaf has finally discontinued the original 50w Pico Squeeze. A moment of respectful silence please...

    for one of the best performing mosfet squonks in vape history (imho).
    Good thing I have 5 backups, mwahahaha!

    Dang - thanks for the warning! I had one sitting there in a cart - and it's gone. Swapped in a white one, and ordered. I have one in use, and one in the box, but wanted one more before they disappear...

    I hate irresponsible Dog owners... there is a place in hell for you all!


    Went to wally world to grab some toothpaste and other needed items...

    Was walking back to my car and noticed this Labrador in the back of this Subaru with the windows only cracked an inch maybe 2 at max... dog is panting up a storm...see the poor dog already having cotton mouth... so I call wally world and ask to page the owner... stick my fingers into the window and force the window down a few more inches on the passenger side.

    Go to my car where in the trunk I always carry a 12 pack of water and my Lab and Goldens folding water bowl...grab 2 waters fill it, reach in the Subaru and give the dog water...the dog seems thankful...

    I wait for the owner to come out and its some late 20 something maybe early 30 something chick...she is startled I am petting her dog and freaks out...mind you its 70* outside in San Diego today at 11am when this happened

    I tempered my angst of the situation and said to her that the temps in cars are always 20* hotter than outside even with the window slightly cracked...leave the windows down enough so the dog can stick its snout out but not its head and that is adequate.

    She got a tad upset and asked how the windows went down farther...not worried if her dog is ok...

    I explained, I moved them down... should be happy I didn't call the cops on you for animal cruelty and realize there are other pet loving people in the world who are responsible enough to know when a dog is in distress.

    If it was a dude that walked out, I might of been a tad more vocal... using less polite words.

    I really was just going to call the cops and sit there and point and laugh at whoever the owner was...even thought about just breaking the window.

    Ahwell, she probably have to get the motors on those 2 windows looked at... they sort of made a popping noise when I forced the window down

    Serves her right. Every once in a while I will bring one of my dogs with me when we are out. When I do this though, me or my wife are always in the vehicle with the dog. I never even leave it alone just in case it starts getting hot. Living in Texas that is a very distinct possibility at any time of year LOL.

    .

    "They killed Kenny! Those bastards!"

    Guess that settles that for me. Tax-mas will let me buy one of those
    Topside mods, possibly two. May buy a couple more Coppervapes while at
    it. Keep all my baskets out of one egg.

    Been piddling a little with 28 and 36 awg Kanthal. Got a nice wrap of
    36 around a 28 core. Need to do a little fused 28*2/36. Have kind of
    figured out a technique which helps wrapping by hand, lets the wire
    almost wrap itself. Will probably also do up some 30*2/36.

    Still have base juice from last Christmas, little over 500 ml. Need to
    refill the 240/250 ml dispense bottle, uh probably next week. On to RDA,
    likely pick up another Gorge, or two.

    May get some RDA other than a Wasp or Goon as a try. Not seeing much
    which appeals to me but not looked too hard recently (within the
    last six months). Got a Dead Wabbit so there's that but I'm thinking
    something else, not sure what exactly. Might try something using mesh
    just for giggles.

    Worse case I'll make a squonking mod out of a sardine tin and use a
    thimble for an RDA. Been gnawing that notion over a while now too. So
    I'll say (Rights Reserved, Trademarks & Patents pending) to let that
    keep it under wraps but gee, if someone reads it here and prototypes
    something up, great. Nod, nod, wink, wink.

    "Oh look, a free idea!"

    And just because I got a Matilda's Stomp in my skull this morning, ...

    Ordered a spare refill squonk bottle. And 24awg ni90. Haven't tried 90 before.

    At least something still feels like potential upgrade

    I only just now got it after looking again. I blame being perma-baked & brain damage, not enough coffee today.. My coffee slave rund-ed off. He mentioned something about Columbian and the death of goats. Yes, the death of goats is worrisome. Goats serve as dowries.

    "Hey Juan, marry me daughter I give you three goats."

    "Okay Papi, Juan. Wait, my brother Juan he got four for marrying your other daughter."

    "Si, but he already grows coffee and has two mules. He say one mule too old, I give him extra goat."

    "Oh, he get another goat so he farm more. I got farm."

    "Estupido, pulio doesn't count as a farm."

    Damn, that was not a proper algorithm for doing Y. ^+Z, hunt that bug down. Might be from the Java pointer method, cycle the loop until pipe bomb monkey. *nods, ponders*

    Today has to be a Monday. It all went backwards forwards and then side to side, hinky. Think I'll knock off, tube out. Chili for supper y'all, c'mon by and grab a bowl. know she'll fix for an army, always does. prolly go enjoy some pain relief and crash in/on/around telly.

    Great will look forward to hearing your thoughts, seems a bit expensive for what is essentially a glorified Pico squeeze but I'd love to be proved wrong!

    If it's really solid I'd definitely consider one !

    I just received my Pico 2 Squeeze in yesterday, thank you again @JuicyLucy for suggesting the Pico. Love this lil thing. Just having to figure out why it's only for firing for a quick moment though. Thought it was the atty, then trim ring but apparently it's somewhere in the settings! Other than that it's a pretty nice lil mod! Not sure how I like the LED's yet but it came in handy last night in a dim room. No real loss of power and I loved the fact it came with a 21700 battery in the box. The atty I went ahead and used, it's good for a kit atty. Taste is there but I'm spoiled to my other attys. If I could complain, it's because I'm a lefty and it's more righthanded friendly. Not a huge issue since I'm seeing that my pointer finger is about like using my other mods vs a thumb. Up/down buttons just a tad small for me, but that's just me and again not an issue.
    I could see buying another without thinking twice about it!!
    Again thank you @JuicyLucy for the recommendation! You were spot on with this! The Sigelei does fall a little below this one due to battery drain, otherwise decent. :)

    Adjusted the 510 on my Arctic Dolphin and got it back in the game. Something about it not working just bugged me, glad it was an easy fix!

    Just do it. It's one of the most flawless clones I own. It hits way harder than most of my mechs. Threads are tiny so it takes a bunch of turns to get the cap off, but they are clean. Some very minor fitment issues but doesn't take away from anything. I think it comes with an authentic dee mods bottle (at least when I took it apart it says dee mods on it) Speaking of that, i've never had a squonk bottle that has a metal plate inside of it. It's weird squonking because I can hear the tube scraping on it. Doesn't effect squonking but it's just odd.
    My main issues right now are the button is a little wiggly since it needs to be screwed out a bit to fire sure I can fix that somehow. Maybe put an oring on it so I can tighten it down while still giving me enough room to press in / fire. The 510 is manually adjusted but it's not reverse threaded so screwing down an atty moves down the 510 pin as well.
    I also found out on Focalecig, they have stabwood bodys and complete mods, so big plus there if they mass produce those.
    Overall, it's damn near perfect. Just vaping it for the short amount of time, I'd give it a 9 outta 10.
    Once I have some more time with it, I'll do a full review on Reddit or something.

    Yesterday's vapemail. Batteries. Now I just need mods to go with, lol.
    (I do use a couple 20700's but now have extra, and an 18350 mod should be en route)

    hating these vendor spammers, that title threads as newbie questions that they answer themselves

    keep going to click through, offer advice, then realise it's bogus
