    Yay, my wire came in. And bonus, got it out of the mailbox before the rain settled in. I might be wrong but I thought the last time I picked up LV wire it came in a plastic bag. Maybe not, these rolls just came loose in a bubble mailer. Definitely gonna need my magnifiers to see that ribbon. Stack it, pfft, I can barely see the wider .4mm when twisting it and catching it in the light.

    Would this be any good?

    http://www.vaporbreak.com/en/693-sxk-bb-box-70w-with-usb-port-rev4-device-starter-kits.html#/

    They also have a DNA60 for a little bit more money. I know nothing about Billet Boxes, so never mind if this is junk.

    I have ordered juice quite a few times from this place, back when I was vaping Hangsen almost exclusively. They aren't fast, and there was one time I did not receive my order, and got no response when I tried to contact them about it, so buying from them is a bit of a gamble. I kept ordering though because they are incredibly cheap on juice.

    They are pretty good. That price is low too. I think the 70w is normally $75 and the dna $110.

    I've had two 70w and still have a dna one. One of the boards fried on a 70w.

    I've never had the sxk only the two authentic that I recenly bought. Question maybe better answered over in the BB thread. But my understanding is they are a great 1-1 clone, just not sure about the chip difference.

    I'm not thinking about buying one, was just responding to the angst in this thread over missing out on the buy in the Hardware thread. :cry: :giggle:

    You can find really great deals on eBay. I did. I found a Provari Mini for $51 plus $10 shipping & the person included 2/18350 batteries & a used Nautilus atty with 6 coils.

    Just about :)
    I started vaping high nic at work and found myself vaping less and less.

    Now I'll take a pull occasionally, but can go a day without anything. I hope to be completely done soon.

    I looked at those beadalon spool tamers. Found a good deal on them, seemed cheap from someplace. Artbeads I think, $0.89 a piece plus shipping. Just couldn't bring myself to buy them for the price they typically go for. Being elastic band and just a piece of plastic with a hole in it. Decided to try the ones by UD from FT so no speedy 2 day shipping for sure. Like 5pk for $2 I think. People said they were on the small side, only for the 30ft spools not the bigger regular ones. I think I can get a yard or more of elastic strap from wally world for like $1 and just attach it and make them longer. We'll see what happens. I would've ordered the 10pk but they were sold out.

    I have the UD ones from FT. They are exactly what you said for smaller spools. The other negative is I think the elastic is not as stretchy as the Beadalon ones so while they hold your spool in place you really can’t pull the wire through the little hole on the plastic piece. So holds wire in place but can’t dispense. I haven’t purchased the Beadalon ones yet as the only place I can get them is on Amazon. So I’ve been holding out :D

    I don't mind stuff on amazon but I've noticed there's a lot of things, smaller stuff usually that cost more or comes in bigger bulk from amazon. For instance the elastic band. They don't offer many smaller cheaper options, they have things like 144yds of 3/8" elastic band for $17, 50yds for $10, a few are 6yds or 2yds for $4. All in 3/8" wide. Same brand dritz from walmart online, 12yds of 3/8" $4. 4.5yds of 1/2" for $1.77. That's more than enough for a couple spool tamers.

    I mean unless there was another need for it, what the hell is someone going to do with 144yds or 50yds of elastic? lol. Not saying it's not a good deal for the quantity from amazon, but they make sure to get the price up to $10-20. I've seen it with a lot of things. Walmart also has a combo pack, 30" of 1/2" and 54" of 3/8" wide for $1.28. Which I think would be plenty for 5 spool tamers. I measured the LV spools and the plastic sides are only 2.75" across. Just over 8.5" in circumference max which would leave around 2 1/2" extra to hook to the plastic piece of the tamer. Also doesn't account for being slightly stretched to fit snug. 3/8" will fit just inside the spool walls.

    That's what drives me nuts about spool tamers. Buying a 144yd spool for $17 breaks down to less than 12 cents - a yard. I know spool tamers don't use no yard of elastic, not even half a yard. And a 144yd spool isn't true 'bulk' and it's retail not wholesale. So the cost is roughly 4-5 cents a piece for the elastic (if that) and another however much for the plastic bit. Maybe a dime? (being generous). Yet in smaller packages they sell for $2-3 a piece. Amazon has them for 1 tamer, $3 + $4.25 shipping or 3pk for $6 prime. They do have a 25pk for $16, but not trying to spend close to $20 on spool tamers.. and what the hell am I gonna do with 25 tamers? lol. I don't think I have but maybe 10-12 spools of wire and they don't all need tamers. Maybe I need to buy the 25pk, keep the 5 or 6 I can use and sell the others like that one vendor on amazon for $7 a piece. Turn a $124 profit lmao.

    I agree but where do you buy the plastic piece that attaches to the elastic? And do they have the tiny hole to dispense the wire?

    I've been meaning for a long time to make my own spool tamers.. I even got some elastic hair things from Dollar Tree that I'm sure would work. Just hot melting a section of the elastic and making a small hole in it would work.

    I like this so much I got another. I sold the blue, ( not the pretty drip tips though ) but he won't be back till Aug( he's out of town) so I'm waiting to send it to him. Sent him a picture of the gold in case he likes that one better. I'm fine with either color. These are great little pod systems. Fair warning to anyone looking to pick one up though, the gold is a fingerprint magnet. Does not really bother me, but I know it would for some. Now I'm just waiting on my Smoant Pasito to get in ( have it on pre-order)

    Check out the new snow wolf pod. Can't remember what's it's called but looks really nice. Refillable with mesh coils I think.
