SMOK TFV4 Mini, XCUBE Mini 75W, Clapton Coils

I just found the SMOK TFV4 mini on the SMOK site. 22mm width compared to 24.5mm, 3.5ml filling volume compared to 5ml.

Also there is a picture of the XCUBE Mini 75W as well as some information to more RBA heads and prebuild coils – with clapton wire!

The regular SMOK TFV4 Tank is together with the Uwell Crown my favorite so far.

Eleaf iStick 100W for $32.73! (update: $32.04)

Gearbest offer the Eleaf iStick 100W dual parallel 18650 mod for $34.12. With the coupon code MAXY you can bring this down to $32.73! Definitely a good deal!

It is the “simplified version with mod only”… not that there is a lot in the box apart from an USB cable worth 20 cents.. 😉

UPDATE: getting better, $32.99 regular price, after
coupon code “promoprogb”
it is $32.04

VapeCige VTBox200 v2 – an update

VapnFagan released another first look at the VapeCige VTBox200. This time on the “version 2” with some improvements.

Short summary:

  1. The 510 seems to be press fitted and solid
  2. Button is no more mushy, ring is still loose on arrival
  3. Magnets on the door are solid and did not come off so far
  4. Battery connector has been changed to a female one (most important change!)
  5. Battery is still super tight in there
  6. The black/white one seems to be painted, the red and black one anodized.

Battery safety table – User tested

No deal, no review, much more important:

Mooch @ ECF did (and still does) some cell tests to verify the ridiculous claims rewrappers put on their cells. His battery safety grades table is a MUST see.

Don’t fall for these numbers most of the rewrappers promise. Stick to Samsung, LG, Panasonic, Sony… But see for yourself:

Innokin Disrupter TC! Temperatur Control for Kanthal (pre-order) + iSub Apex

The Innokin Disrupter TC – which can do TC for Kanthal – just went up for preorder at ($45.50). You NEED to use the included ATC Atlas Tank to be able to use Kanthal TC (Innokin ATC system).

Also for preorder is the new iSub Apex Top-Fill Tank ($28.50).


SXK Zero Mini 60W (with updated SXK Nebula chip?)

3fvape has the SXK Zero Mini for preorder. A tiny 60W 1×18650 mod from SXK, powered by the great SXK Nebula chip. I heard that it will get an upgraded firmware version (compared to the current Nebulas) with presets for Nickel and Titanium and of course with the already known TCR menu! $55.99 is a tad high but will be worth a try!

Not a lot going on – a summary.

The bad:

Vapecige seems to struggle still with the VTBox200 to fix all flaws and I am waiting for some news about how the latest batch performs. HCigar has a small shitstorm because of the brass 510 threading on the VT200 – which might be changed to a stainless steel one in a later batch and there are already some pics with peeling of coating on the Vaporshark DNA200.

The good:

First hands-on for the Sense Cyclone tank pop up one by one. It has some nice unique new features. All in all I am not overly impressed but definitely worth a look as an alternative to the SMOK TFV4. See a review by Mike Vapes below.

The new products:

Fasttech listed some more Fishbone RDA clones, a bunch of Drip Tips and LiPos. Nothing spectacular but the silicone sleeves for the IPV D2 look interesting.

Focalecig listed a Vortice RDA Clone as well as a value version of the Abaddon – which is definitely worth a look for $14.99!
