The latest version of the Coil Master DIY Kit (the V3) is listed for $48.99. Thats about a dollar cheaper than on the Coil Master site 🙂 Nonetheless, the package contents look great with the Tab 521 mini, Hex Screwdrivers (only the T-Style one) and the Coiling Kit V4. On my wishlist it goes, maybe I can find it in a flash sale at some time…
Focalecig was suspended accepting payments because of patent infringements (lol 😀 – guess this was because of the Dotmod Petri thingy) and will be back soon accepting Credit Cards again. Paypal will follow in November most likely.
I have high hopes for both. For the Griffin that I can finally handle the wicking and that it does not leak (though I read it tends to leak between airflow and juice flow control 🙁 ), and for the EHPro Billow v2.5 since it has a pretty small chamber and should give great flavor! I’ll keep you updated.
PS: Both are pretty large and the Griffin is fat too! 🙂
I want to drop a few words here about the Wismec RX2/3, the DNA167 (DNA250 chip) and my observations about the 6V limit.
Every day there is a new thread somewhere and someone is complaining that their RX2/3 is not working properly since they can not go up to 150W in dual cell configuration. This is because it has – like the DNA133 and DNA167 – a 6V limit. Having a 0.48 ohm coil, you can only go up to 75W (which equals 6V). Either that or you hit the maximum Amps Limit on the chip (25A on the DNA).
I do have the Boxer DNA167 and really like it (despite its absurd price point of $250). Also my standard build is a 5/6 wrap clapton 26/32 at 0.48 ohms and 75W – exactly at the 6V limit. If you set the Watts to 76 for example, you get an “Ohms too high” warning on the screen and the mod throttles back to the allowed maximum. BUT: Around 3.8V per cell it seems that the DNA can not deliver 6V any more and you get the Ohms too high error again, throttling back to around 68W. This is a bit annoying, but makes sense since it can only buck down voltage and not boost. Having a Volt drop – especially with lower Amps (=15-20A in this case) cell – the combined Voltage when firing is not enough to keep the chip running and deliver 6V. Nonetheless I did not experience this on the RX2/3 but have to try again and take a closer look.
Keep in mind that you have to build accordingly and you might not want to rely on the full 6V. Better calculate with 5.5V.
TLDR: 6V limit on the RX and DNA (otherwise you get “ohms too high”) – more a 5 to 5.5V limit with half drained cells.
I am over clearomizers with prebuilt coils, but there are still a few that impressed me – one of them is the Joyetech Ultimo.
I just stumbled upon a picture on vapin heathens instagram showing a “Joyetech Ornate” which looks like a 25mm Ultimo, just a bit better and with other coil options. See below! Super curious about this one.
