    I haven’t build mine yet. @DonBaldy posted about his and @KingPin! posted up a pic of shifting the coil to match the airflow restrictions, great idea. Can't remember what the thread was but I'm sure they'll chime in with good tips we both can use.

    I've gotta stop spending money. Even just these little bits of money, shit adds up.

    Just ordered a CV mech box squonker, on sale for $12.99 at 3FVape (in today's or yesterday's CVD e-mail), plus a YFTK Pocket clone RDA on sale for $4.49. Free shipping. (This CV is not the same as the ones @MrMeowgi and I just got from @gadget! )

    I like my mech/Entheon setup at somewhere around 0.4 to 0.5, with lowest "mass" possible.
    Ni80, I'd use 26 gauge, around 5 wraps 2.5mm.
    For kanthal, 6 wraps of 24 gauge.
    And I'd do a "spaced" coil.
    But that's just me, and I'm a bit of an oddball.

    @nadalama Here's what I did. Just some Coilology framed staple coils (yes they are filthy and I need new cotton). Not sure that I did anything special. Haven't tried shifting the coils as Kingpin suggests. Flavor for me is spot on.

    Tonight I bonkin' on my Feedlinks. Curiosity got the best of me, so I finally hooked up one of the Revo tanks for the first time. You're right @MrMeowgi , it's not too bad. I wasn't expecting the airflow to be this decent. The coil in there is workin pretty good.

    The mail man was supposed to bring me this today-
    [​IMG]
    But, no dice. My tracking says "Your package is delayed".

    Last night I finally found a good price for the RDA Ive been wanting. (Thanks again @f1r3b1rd )
    [​IMG]
    I ordered the Hotcig Castle on a whim. I did zero research. It was like $12-13 so I went for it.
    [​IMG]
    Have any of you tried the Castle? Thoughts on it?

    I’ve got a castle rda. It and the Vapefly pixie are my main go to squonk attys. It is easy to build and has a nice restricted direct lung draw. I would say that it vapes just as well as any $100 rda. And the fact that it comes with two top caps is a bonus. Vapor DNA has the castle and the pixie in the clearance section,I’m probably going to order another of each.

    Gotta order a Castle....this is the first I've heard of it.....looking at the pictures on VaporDNA it should be my cup-o-tea. Hard to beat a potential decent atty for 13 bucks.....thanks for the tip.

    Others have said it but yeah, I saw it at VaporDNA when I had the Elder Dragon in my basket. It was either the Castle or the Gas Mods Nixon. Both of those are $13 (Also the Pixie), because there's a big sale. Not sure when it ends, I ordered Friday night.

    Yes I picked up the Castle from VaporDNA back when they first hit, great little RDA. The top cap can get quite hot depending on the build but they include a clear one as well. $13 is a great deal, I paid almost $50 landed here in Canada.

    It doesn't get much use these days since all my single coil RDAs are now B2K's.

    I've been trying to think of something witty and clever to retort but I don't have enough of the good cold meds in me. Fail.

    Vanilla Bean Cream from The Sauce LA Pier line is good stuff but does a number on cotton.

    So the batteries from IMR arrived...preliminary findings are they are authentic...

    Doing a charge discharge cycle on them to see their capacity.

    Their internal resistance were the same as my authentic P26s

    Everything about them down to the crimping, type of insulator, color, looks good.

    In the last picture one of the 5 is the "Molicel Branded" one...can you tell which?

    Now to 2A charge these and discharge
