I like this. My old KBOX used to pick up gunk from my dirty hands. This smooth stainless steel doesn't.

Best box mod I've had so far. I wore out the fire switch on my original KBOX; that was a few years "after" fitting a new 510 connector base to it when that also wore out. I guess I got my "mileage" out of that one. After that was a Wismec something or other. That one had a catastrophic failure when the entire fire button and display assembly fell into the main unit, lol.

vaping is throat hit for me,   i get extremely stroppy when this isnt achieved,   i still vape 16mg juice  ;D

You could use a juice with more PG and less VG. That will increase the throat hit.



my juice is mostly pg and i am currently vaping at 4.6 volts  16mg  1.8 lr atomiser

HI all, it's been a while.

It's been a while mainly coz I am settled with what device I use, what juice, what batteries etc.

And the device I use is indeed the Eleaf iStick.  You're right, they look sturdy and I have one piece of advice to make them last longer: Don't allow the battery to drop into the mod. PLACE them in, otherwise the bottom plate of the mod starts to fall away.

There, I'm done.

Hope you're all well and staying safe,

Jed

I see that the top and bottom plates are made of brass, plated to look like stainless steel. Mine is wearing through the plating already. It looks like the body is actual stainless steel. I'm a non-stop vaper. If I'm awake it's in my hand.

None of it is SS... It is plated SS. Body is just die cast.
I like the one I just got... don't care for the silicone cover I got too much though... doesn't really stay in place well and gets warped in my hand.

Looks like I will be raw dawgin this one.

That is about 11.7 watts - about right for your 1.8 ohm coil.

When I mixed my own (years) I used 100% VG but the B&M stuff I've been recently hooked on is 70% VG and 30% PG. I don't notice any difference. But this 2Bacco Red is expensive! I'm going to have to go back to my own mixing; I have 2 liters of VG base at 125mg nic to use (diluted from 250mg). I have 4 liters of VG at 0% nic to use with it. I'm going to be shopping for flavors.

I have 6 liters of 100 mg/ml of nicotine base in 100% PG stored in my freezer in case I ever need to start mixing my own again. VG should always be easy to obtain, as should flavorings. Just make sure the flavorings are not oil based.

You will get more flavor if you have some PG in your home mixed juices.
