It may not be the most practical device, but I do like the way it looks :)

I figure it will likely sit on the desk as an always ready, and double duty as a paper weight :D I still have aluminum Nemi tubes setup for 18350's. I usually have one riding shotgun in a cargo pocket when I'm working.

I could even use this to set on my amp. It's low center of gravity, and weight should keep it put even if I crank up some power chords :D I'll likely set it up on a single coil running at what johnny mentioned. I normally get decent battery life out of 18350's this way :)

I run all my 18350 mechs @ .5oHm, single or dual coil. The only thing you really need to vary is the coil diameter and the wick density otherwise, imo.

I, for example, love my Ek v3 (airflow bored to 3mm) with a single .5oHm vertical coil, spaced wraps, and 3mmID, while in my Orchid v6 I use 2 1oHm contact coils (horizontal) @ 2mm ID each.

Yep, a .5 single coil for 350's seems to be the magic combo.

I'm hoping the Merlin will fit in this without restricting the airflow more ( 23mm ). It holds a 3mm ID coil well, with a dense wick, and flows 85% VG with no issues.

Guess I'll be finding out when it gets here. I just hope they don't run out of them before they ship mine :D

270 grams without a battery, about 23 grams for a battery, Merlin fits in the hole, but won't screw all the way down on mine, airflow ring puts it in a bind, it is close, but I personally won't try to force it. Great little mod, have had mine since they dropped it to $30 Pretty good deal @ current price.

I was first tempted because i like the look of it,but the high amount of design issues (airflow problems,bottom screws for battery replacement) still refrains me from buying it even at a lower price.
Additional questions :
Can we load the batts by unscrewing the switch ?
What's this awful plastic bit on top ?

With a 22mm atty airflow restriction is minimal,if at all. Yes you unscrew the button for battery access bottom access would just be for maintenance Awful plastic bit is a small removable knob for a lanyard, but I sure wouldn't want it around my neck.

Thanks. Do you know the depth of the atty cylinder? I'm wondering how close to flush a Serpent Mini would sit in that mod.

Depth is about 30mm, anything over that and it is out the top.

@ wraithpc : Thank you.Might be an add to my collection.
@ Paf : it's ok,my musculature will allow the use of it.My right arm is already slightly bigger because of masturbation scoliosis anyway.

Cheers.

That's about a centimeter and a half of protrusion with a Serpent Mini. Should be just enough to grip the atty for easy unscrewing of the refill lid. Perfect. Carted and checked out. :)
