SMOK TFV4 Tricoil after >200ml Red Astaire


After 15 days of constant use (which results in >200ml juice) I decided to change my coil in the TFV4. The flavor was still good though. Red Astaire is not gunking the coils a lot, but it has some artificial coloring in it that cover the coils more than other juices.

I am quite impressed as it is by far not as bad as I expected it to be. I did not check the coil beforehand as it is always a pain to disassemble the tank because of my constant fear of breaking the weak orings. The wire is discoloured but there are not a lot of crumbs on it, the inner cotton sheet is dirty of course.

A tip for changing the coils: Use the Richard Ng method, means: screw the coil on the chimney and then assemble the tank. The oring on the chimney is the weakest link and has to be screwed on tight for no leaking.

Twisted Messes RDA Clone, Revolt RDA Clone

I think it is always worth mentioning when one finds a clone with good machining and not a fucked up deck or screws. I got this Twisted Messes RDA Clone from focalecig a few weeks ago and had the chance to build a titanium TC coil a few days ago. I am really impressed with the quality! Definitely worth a try for $9.84. Rarely seen such a clean deck, no crooked posts and very good screws. O-rings are loose (like they are on the original) but I love it for dripping.

Another tip is this Revolt RDA version from Fasttech. The screws are not perfect and need some slight sanding and sometimes the screw pops back out. A slight pinch with some pliers fix this problem. I love it with the included competition drip-tip! Btw: The SS stand is available separately for $2.74.

VapeCige VTBox200 red/black available for preorder (+ETA)

The red and black version of the VapeCige VTBox200 is now available for pre-order at Fasttech. Unfortunately the PRICECONTROL coupon code (for a $45 discount) does not work with this version – only for the black/white one. Maybe this changes in the next day (hope so…). Edit: Coupon Code does not work anymore!

The black/white is ETA on 08/26! Looking forward 🙂

PS: RMBBUST for 5% off is still working @ FT!

… aaand it’s gone. They corrected the price back to $174 a few hours ago. Maybe it was a typo 😉
