cdnerds I'm a bit sceptical about this being USB powered. Not everyone builds RDA/RBA's near a USB port & yes I think it is over priced but I'm going to purchase one anyways as I cant find them anywhere that has them in stock

Agree a little costly and I am not too sure about it being USB driven being the best option.

Agree way to expensive especially with the sigelei ones near half the price, also tobeco and hcigar will more likely be cheaper :)

Fasttech is definitely kidding here. As everyone before have rightly opined - this is SERIOUSLY OVERPRICED. It shouldn't be a cent above $20 max here. At this pricepoint it's available aplenty on this side of the pond as well (shipping included), and that's a better option since we'd receive it in a jiffy.

@qorax. I assume there is MAP pricing on this. I also do not see any vendors with a USB powered one. I think this is a great idea for one as you have a reliable power source.

@deadinside
The rechargeable battery ones (USB powered!) are going for $25 in the Americas. While the AAA ones go for under $20. Pls take a look at some of Vaper Joe's postings.

@qorax the Sigelei "triple A" ones that VaporJoe posted were brand new and there is fall out left and right over them.

They cannot read sub ohm (Though one reviewer says it can, but does not demonstrate it).
The batteries are 14500 and not standard and did not come with batteries. (Add $10-15 for 14500 batteries)
Reads in x.x format and not x.xx format.

I am watching people get burned left and right in pre-orders and group buys over them. The Tobeco greybox one is not much better. Worst part is most people cannot even return them.

14500s are not exactly rare among vapers, and they cost nowhere near 10-15$. That is, if you don't want to use USB, because if you do, you don't need them.

I'd love to have something like this, but at that price? Not really …
