Just a quick heads up on some “issues” with the latest SMOK Aliens. It seems that SMOK changed the chip in the mod and we have two different models now that have to use different firmwares. The firmware versions of the older models are called something like “v1.2.2”, the newer ones “vb1.0.2”. Currently you can not upgrade the vb1.0.2 since there isn’t any newer version available. Also you need a newer firmware upgrade software.
Apart from that, I read somewhere that the latest batch has a “spring loaded” battery door.
All in all, nothing to worry but good to know that your vb1.0.2 isn’t bricked or something like that, you just need a different firmware / software.
More info can be found in this reddit post here!

Before I start preparing everything for the kids, here are some coupon code (reminders):
There is a bunch of stuff in a 50% off sale at 12:00 UTC and 16:00 UTC, I picked the best two:
There are about 10 other products in a sale then too, keep an eye on this page here!
For the unlikely case you didn’t know already:
Today is the last day to get 15% off for orders over $100 and 10% off below with coupon code THANKS2016.
Lots of new offers will be released at 08:00 (UTC) here.
Limited offer for the Augvape Merlin for $7.99, CoilArt Azeroth for $11.99 and OBS Crius for $7.99. (around 10 pieces each).
Use my method mentioned in an earlier post and you can easily get these offers!
(09:00 UTC) for half-price: Mage GTA, IJOY Maxo, OBS Ace
(10:00 UTC) for half-price: Griffin Plus
(11:00 UTC) for half-price: Merlin RTA, Brooklyn RTA
Also there are some Liquids for $0.01 here and there.
Tomorrows 50% off sales at 08:00 (UTC) will (might?) be
Once again the tip how to get the offer 99%: Put it in your cart, go to the next step where it says “place your order” at the bottom. Now open time.is. At exactly 08:00:01, refresh the page, scroll to the bottom, quickly check the price and hit place order!
Update: I am confused, there doesn’t seem to be a sale at 08:00 UTC.. maybe the next one at 16:00 UTC..
Sorry for this (first?) non-vape related deal: I am looking for an acceptable deal for the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 for a while now and right after release, the prices were skyrocketing due to the demand. Then I missed several flash sales but now I am in: You can get the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 currently for $24.89 and it is in stock.
Take a look at this nice gadget.
And now back to vape related deals, promised 😉
I am using my OBS Engine for a week now and have to say that the hype is real.
Flavor wise it is for sure not the best tank out there, but for a top airflow RTA, it is pretty decent. Building on it is super easy and it wicks like a champ. 80-85W are not a problem at all (6 wrap 26/32 kanthal claptons). I did not tuck down the wicks through the holes, the cotton is just laying on the feeding holes under the coil. Of course no leakage at all, also no spitback. It drinks juice, but that’s not uncommon for this type of tanks. I do not see this as a con. 80W.. what do you expect? 😀
So far, it is definitely in my Top 5 tanks, maybe even Top 3. For around $20 – go for it. Worth a try imho!
It is currently in a flash sale for $19.93 or $21.67 here- take a look!
Focalecig has still some problems to offer Paypal due to the recent copyright infringements, so they decided to do a “new” store. Your old account data will work there, all items and prices are the same but they offer Paypal 😉
Take a look at Popecig 🙂 !
Once again there is a 50% off sale at 17:00 (UTC+1) – limited to 10pcs! For example:
ProTip: Log in to your account, put the item in your cart, go to the first checkout page. Wait there. Open http://time.is in a separate window. Wait for 17:00 in UTC+1. Go back to the Gearbest Window, refresh the page (you should see the flash sale price now) and hit place order.
I did get already 5 of these offers without any problem.
Here are the upcoming offers for the next 50% off sale:
Not sure if it is really 17:00 UTC+1 or what time they exactly mean. Will keep you posted.
Update: yep, happening in 15 Minutes 😉
… so in 30 Minutes, be quick – Only 5pcs each! Promotion page here.
If you miss it today, check back tomorrow, there should be the same or new 50% offers until Nov. 15th (their info is a bit cryptic here).
PS: There is also stuff for $0.01 available then.. maybe some fused claptons? 🙂
A special offer for new Gearbest members is the IJOY Limitless RDTA Plus for $11.11 with coupon code EWH1111.
Not sure how they check if you are new or not since you can create an account with an alternative e-mail address in a few seconds 😉
Update: Sorry, coupon code was wrong the first time. EWH1111, not EHW1111. Only valid with a new account.
While mine is stuck at customs I’ll repost this deal since I get lots of positive feedback for this tank:
The OBS Engine is $19.93 in silver and $20.78 in black still in a flashsale!
Joyetech/Eleaf as released a firmware update for the iStick Pico now too adding Preheat and two different layouts.
You can download the update here.
Gearbest is planning some special flash sales for November 7th and November 9th, so stay tuned for some nice offers.
Rumors say that the HCigar VT75 nano will be $60.99, the Wismec RX2/3 $39.99 and the iStick Pico 75W $19.99.
All three aren’t bad, but I hope for more and maybe some 0.01 cent offers or 50% off like in the past 🙂
I’ll keep you updated.
Another price drop for the SXK Petri RTA in a flash sale for $14.92. Still in stock and some pieces left 🙂
