Mine arrived - not impressed - pics/breakdown inside
I got mine today. I was excited to build it and make some clouds, but was a little disappointed.

Here it is - nice box.


Bit of a brushed finish. Comes with screw driver, spare o-rings, screws, wick and wire.


Nice sort of domed top cap.


So far so good...then
Ugh. Look at those center post holes.
The bad deburring job inside the top cap doesn't bother me much.
But that left post hole is terrible.


Those giant holes are ~2.50 - 2.65mm each.
But mine get partially blocked by the deck - probably because the holes were drilled a little too low.
Not a big deal, those holes are too big anyways.
The logo isn't even center with the air holes.


So, tried to fix the post holes and drilled them out.
I tried to get them even, but they are too far off.
I just made them bigger :(
I built a dual 22g at 0.16 ohms.
Damn center post is loose.
At least it's easy to hold that chunky block (which is chrome plated brass btw - the outer posts are steel).

I took this pic just to show how I placed my coils and wick.


I think the air holes are a little excessive.
I can vape it with one air hole and get good warm flavor and vapor at 0.16ohms.
2 airholes it becomes a bit airy and cooler.
3 airholes and it's more air than vapor. Vapor production actually drops.
Maybe at sub 0.10ohms the extra airholes would help cool it down and it will still produce clouds.
I'll try that next. Maybe 22g dual parallels or some straight quads.

Adjusting for airflow: the top cap turns easily enough, but not loose enough to move on it's own.
But it is kinda silly. If you build in the center (like I did) and you close off air holes - then the airhole will no longer be in front of the coil. If you build quad coils on it, and close off holes, then two of your coils won't get equally/direct airflow.

But I do think the airflow from under the coils and the domed top cap help flavor.

All in all, it's not bad. I just wish mine didn't have those flaws.

jeez. that does look bad with the odd post holes on the block. I'm still waiting for mine, so if it looks really bad, i'll try to find some genuine IGO block spare parts. I know i've seen them at USA sites. No way I'd drill that block if it has brass in it.

thx for the pics and review

Not me...I'll ask for a replacement if it looks like that. I'm kind of a little bitch that way.

The holes on my center post are drilled properly but it does rotate when tightening.

Looking at your pics again, does juice leak like a sieve out of the holes with the deck exposed? def a sloppy job on that one. I'd have them send you a new one. just awful.

Haven't built mine yet, but the left hole in center block is the same as yours. The center post is "loose" also, seems to be floating in the soft insulator.

UD should have stuck to basic atties

As soon as they tried to get any fancier than an IGO-W they started doing crazy things

long live the igo-l

Mine is significantly worse. Just got it today. The air holes are over half way blocked off and the post holes were laughable. Insulator looks like its coming out. Misfires over half of the time.

Yeah my center post turns and slides up and down. It's trash. It's not worth trying to ship it back to FT for replacement. I've got it working - so I'll just leave it alone. It's far from my favorite atty anyhow. It will make its way to the trash soon enough. More attys inbound (and not enough mods).
