    Yesterday evening, scrounged out a Lost Art Goon style RDA. So it's on a Coppervape today as my vape of the day. Built it as single 0.5 Ω coil & its doing really well. Also been using the Gorge on the Gloom style mod. :) Am enjoying using the Gloom mod too. It come with a silicone bottle. Now, I am spoiled and understand the discussion and seeming running off to a fire to get silicone bottles. PET bottles are indeed hard to press.

    More each day suggesting I'm getting too old. All you whippersnappers trending on silicone bottles, now no longer the trend. Not sure now what the trend happens to be. Pretty sure I'm not really bothered in any case.

    If anybody wants a Pico Squeeze 2 kit, Breazy has them on sale (only the purple and dazzle available). Use vapingcheap10 to bring the cost down to $32.49 shipped in US.

    Good deal but since the squeeze 2 does not come in white....
    And the squeeze 1 is discontinued...

    Hopefully the ones I have and the additional one on the way will do me.

    I have a couple of white Dripbox 2's if I desire to vape a single cell regulated squonker.
    And I have about 30 spare bottles for them.
    And around 40 spare bottles for the Squeeze 1. And I think the squeeze 2 takes a different bottle?
    then there is the having to use a battery adapter for the Squeeze 2.
    And since I do not use attys over 22mm....
    Well the Merlin is 23 mm...
    but can't tell it on the Kbox mini.

    The Kbox mini on the left has been used daily for around 3.5 years.

    the wasp on the right shrunk :)

    Been wishing they had a tiny pico squeeze mod for the demon killer. Little squonk bottle and parallel 14500 cells?

    I like the little mods OK, but I still need a fair amount of airflow.
    These trends to go to pods, or get tight MTL rdas...not for me, lol.

    I might throw an Origen O-16 on there, but I never could build it right single-coil, ran them dual, and I was trying to minimize draw on that mini-battery. So that O-atty-x has one simple wire, I think 28 g SSL 6-wraps. I know it's 0.6 ohms, and run time was actually surprisingly good!

    Basically, lasted the bottle, which is 4ml (less the volume of a metal tube in it...)

    Does anyone here have the Vandy Vape Simple EX? Vapor Range has it for $24.99!
    I went to the website looking at the Luna and put a Minikin mini in the cart! WTF is wrong with me?

    Is that the O-atty X I see the kitteh checkin out?

    Thinking I might come chill with you guys a bit if it's ok. Bought my first squonker back in October, now I have five, no sorry, six more. I'm kinda liking them.

    Got a couple of O-atty V1 clones for cheap (I'm very nearly as cheap as @The Cromwell but not quite), a Tigertek Morphe, a Recurve, a Drop Solo, and a VA Radius clone on my squonkers. Also have a Tobhino and a CA Dpro that I'm not using atm. Anyway, like single-coil, restricted DL, builds around 0.5 ohm, nichrome or ss.

    Squonkers are a VV Pulse, two Ram boxes, a Wismec Lux BF, an Aleader BHive, a Desire Cut, and just got a Wotofo Recurve the other day. Love the way that thing feels in my hands.

    Anyhow, hey y'all. Some of you, I already know, some not. So hey! :D

    Welcome aboard!!!
    (**crazy train ozzy laugh**)

    Yeah - that's an O-atty-x. It's a nice vape, but it does make a lot of whoooooosh.
    I'd actually really like to have an old-school but squonkified authentic O-atty.
    I had a catfished o-atty, but something happened and now I don't...o_O

    Have to confess that I had to Google "catfished," I'm an old fart-ette, but I think I've got the overall whiff of what it means. :teehee: Dude on eBay still has the V2s up for sale, if you want to try one. Whiskers and all. :eek: :p

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I have been so close to buying a Hadaly, but was concerned that it would leak, what with airflow being so low on the cap. Do you have a problem with yours leaking?

    Seems like there are a lot of single-coil RDAs that are so similar, I'm stumped as to how much difference there could be in the vape. Am probably just showing my own ignorance, and perfectly willing to be enlightened, but I have to ask. The Hadaly, Krma, Narda, Narca, Citadel, and others I can't call to mind right off, what is it about them that distinguishes them from each other?

    The difference is in the airflow, size of chamber, etc - it does make a difference in performance, and a lot depends on what you want from it

    Haven't tried everything on your list so can't speak on the ones I've never tried

    The Narca clone (think I got the CV version), I only tossed in one build, and didn't care for it - didn't play with it. Flavor wasn't there, but a lot of folks love it, so might just need attention to detail or my version sucks, hard to say

    The Hadaly, I do not have an over squonk problem, but some folks say they do. I do wish it drained though, there is just enough well to kind of drive me a little crazy at times, though I still love it

    IME no one ever cloned the Hadaly to a T, but I haven't tried any of the later versions. ShenRay did the best version in 2017, but even it missed the mark compared to authentic

    I like the O-attys too, but much more like the v2 than the v1. Just roomier, and far easier to build IMO.
    O-atty V1 clone on the Pico, V2 clone on the Underground SQK mech. Both single-coiled and have BF pins for 'em. :)

    IMG_4975.jpg

    Yeah, the v2 is kind of a Drop-esque RDA compared to the v1, but not the same.

    If I had to have just one sRDA, it'd be the Flave 24 Tank. I have two of 'em and they are beautiful.
    They just work.

    The V1 is definitely not easy to build, at least imo. I'm still kinda new at this, though, maybe three or four months using RDAs.

    Beautiful deck on the Flave. Looks really nice.

    Look how gorgeous this is. Man.

    Wraith on the left, Desire Cut on the right.
    Both built with VandyVape MTL Dual-Core Clapton wire for 0.4Ω and running about 30W in power mode. Simple is good.

    And look what I see, a Cut squonker. Do you love yours? I'm vaping mine right now with a Morphe on it, Geekvape 26x2+36 n80 fused clapton wire, about 6 wraps, 3mm id, 0.74 ohms,32.5W.. Next coil I put in, I'll cut back on wraps to take this down closer to 0.4-0.5, but it's nice like this too.

    I do love it (especially for the $12 I spent!), but it does tend to eat batteries if not using a 21700.
    Very nicely made squonker...feels smooth and solid. I build mine somewhat similarly: 3mm, around 0.4 and run about 30W. Seems a nice spot for 'em and the mods. :)

    This is the one on the wraith, but they both built about the same.

    Ya, I found that raising the cap slightly and positioning the AF slot just around the channel rim instead of centered on it works wonders. No whistle.

    I'm building a cart, waiting on Uncle Sam. Got my fingers crossed that the government stays open. Added a black Flave RTA (squonkable) clone to it just a little while ago, hopefully to go on something I'm hoping to buy on Friday..
