You might have seen the upcoming shitstorm already, but here you go in case you missed it: Wismec did update their not so great 510 pin to a very good one now, but unfortunately they messed up the negative connection on the 510 now – the threading. It seem that it comes out pretty easy on the Wismec Predator 228 when you slightly wobble on your tank. So be extra careful or wait for an update 🙁
What a bummer, I have one already and really like it so far 🙁
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.
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..
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!
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 😉
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.
