The Fuchai comes with a very good sleeve, you'll be pleased with it Andy. I never use sleeves but I accidentally ordered the wrong color Fuchai and it was shipped before I could change it. God, I hate gold colored things.

The sleeve is a very tight fit, been using it for a few days now and the mod is still bone dry. Batteries can be changed with leaving the sleeve on. Quite nice.



And that's one of the reasons why I bought the Sigelei (although, I'm no longer a fan of Sigelei). But at least they freagin cared to include the so called 'condom' for the mod.

Well, I carry my mods around in my car and that's when my mods get scratched, lose their shine and all. I don't drench my mod, so I won't really have the juice getting stuck issue. Even if the juice got trapped in the silicon sleeve, I don't care. At least it wont shit my hands and stuff around the mod :)

@Eternal Spine^ ^I haven't had great luck with gear I have purchased elsewhere than FT.Granted, I haven't purchased a lot but a few things on flash sales, or items that aren't sold here.Not enough to form a strict opinion.But happened enough I am sceptical about purchasing outside of FT.Each item I did buy elsewhere was raved about, yet I havent been impressed at all with the quality.But it has seemed to me that if an item is not here, there is sometimes a reason for that.Not in all cases but using the iPV 6 that MitchL purchased, for example, he got the updated one at FT and the inferior one elsewhere, earlier.Have only ever had 2 items here faulty and both FT returned without a problem, after the time consuming tactics involved concluding negotiations.But, likely just my opinion.But enough that I tend to watch each one closely - that one slipped by me with the phone call



Hmmm, yeah I have gotten some mixed stuff from all over. I had a few issues with things I have gotten here. They always fixed the problem though, I mean always made it right in some way, not one issue with a FT purchase has gone unresolved.. I am in the states though so we have allot of online retailers that have been good. I can't name them because it won't let me. The thing I really like about FT is there is stuff on here you can't find other places allot of the time. Probably the American companies are worried about getting sued, while the direct from China sites can get by with that without issues. The vast majority of all of this stuff is coming from China as it is though, so American companies are selling stuff they bought from China... An FT used to sell it cheaper, but now I can find it online here cheaper some of the time, so I cut my shipping time way way down, and no restocking. So it's a toss up on where to buy from, and depending on your location...

My worst buys so far have been with independent local stores. Support your local vape shop, they have a no return policy and if items are missing from the package when you get home, tough luck! I now will not leave the shop without opening it in front of them to make sure every thing is inside.

The reviewers rave about so much but I have learned you really need to take that with a big fat grain of salt. I mean some will still say some thing is shit when it is. Unfortunately the majority don't though, and they get so much product that it's build it use it a little move on put up a new video... Grimmgreen has stopped doing that as much and putting things up for review for a decent amount of time, a few weeks, but DJLSB is the new Pbassardo... I usually won't touch a product without seeing what he has to say about it. At least mod wise..

RTA, RDA, and what ever I usually look for user feedback over every thing else. FT is awesome for that because people have such different tastes in things, and once you figure out who likes what you can normally figure out if you will as well.

"I carry my mods around in my car and that's when my mods get scratched, lose their shine and all. I don't drench my mod, so I won't really have the juice getting stuck issue."

Yeah, I work from home 90% of the time so I totally understand the issues with scratches and I do like the sleeves for that. In the car my mods get a cup holder, it annoys my wife but I don't care, she doesn't buy my vape gear. An why does she need a green tea or coffee, and a water bottle in the center, there is a door holder for the water bottle! Don't get me wrong I don't hose down my mod/atty with juice like some sort of e-liquid porn situation. I have had a total of 3 RTA leaks, the worst being the Ijoy I mentioned and it was on a mod with a sleeve and not one drop was on the outside minus the top, half a tank between the mod and the sleeve. The mod survived in perfect condition and it still wears it's sleeve.

Come on though we can all agree if the sleeve had a top portion that thinned out and went all the way to the 510, it would prevent atty scratches 100% of the time, and any and all leaks would not be a big deal. Then we could all live the dream and porn star eliquid our mods 100% of the time.

^^^^ you're american and have far greater choices for purchasing spots than I do here in Canada.

Today if I were American, Id likely be doing less shopping in China, but just the odd piece.
We haven't any choice.

Have only shopped in 3 B+Ms here. 1 I juse only when I want to purchase an SX Mini, 2nd went bankrupt selling garbage and a 3rd, highly thought of, tends to buy their goods in the same spots i do, but charge top $ so no reason for me to purchase from them.

^ why most of us shop here

Agree - Feedback although like anyone else here, tend to find 1-2 people whose flavour taste matches your own and wait for their honest reviews, as well as SS/TC mods.
Neither has been wrong yet.

I have a piece of foam (?, not sure of the word in english, that white stuff they add to boxes to make sure TVs don't break) that I did cut to the size of my cup holder, cut a hole in the center to fit my mod. So my mod is not moving around at all whilst driving.

Looks stupid though, but it works.

Yeah I knew you where located in Canada, so I totally get it. It's like you have to shop outside the area...
I gotta say though some of the local shops can be exactly what your describing with your local shops. I will usually only buy any thing from them if I am board with what I have and want some thing now, or the cost is about the same as online, including shipping.

My favorite juice seller prices things at 3X the online price though, and he asks me why I don't buy mods and attys from him.. I like the guy, and when the shop is empty I am honest with him about it. The other thing to make you feel better about all of it is, none of my local online shops have so much of what it is I actually want.. Shopping on here, the selection is massive, even the online vendors I like in the states don't have any thing near this type of selection and often if you do find a good price on some thing, your basically paying shipping with them, then again at another vendor for some thing else that there is a good price on.

airwinny, if you want another good vape hack for that kind of thing.. They sell all these atty holders right, there are tons of stands on FT. If you own a drill, and the right size drill bit a bit larger then a 510, you can go get a piece of wood. Some thing nice, some thing from the scrap bin marked down, what ever you want to do really. I am sure you get where I am going with this, but that makes a fantastic atty stand for the cost of a little time and a piece of wood. When, or if you go the measurement route with the holes, don't forget the bigger then 22 MM stuff..

Often see Americans here speak of great deals, such as Authentic Moonshots for $9 us at home.

Ours here are only a couple more $ than from Hong Kong but we then pay 13% sales tax and about another $10-$12 on shipping.
We'd never see one for $9.
They know they dont have to.

I dont care if vape stores of ejuice sellers sell for the prices that they do for the market dictates what most find acceptable.
But I am not keen on paying full price at stores and run + have little or no recourse if the item does not work.
FT, albeit annoying, is quite fair, imo.

But yes your regular priced items, like ours, with shipping and taxes dont offer savings.

But for the average american vaper, I would think they could shop the deals 100% of the time and do well, or at least that is my perception in the US today..

That said I never do see silicone covers for mods in Canada unless its authentic - never yet seen the clones sold here.

Yeah that's pretty much accurate.

The market dictates a thing, but when it's 3x the cost of the online stores in the local shops, in a local shop in the US that is, they say well we have to keep the lights on and a staff... It's like oh yeah because online business run themselves they don't do any thing.

I just hate seeing a 2-3 times the cost online markups. If you charge fair prices then you won't be competing with US online stores nearly as much.

I mean I am talking an RX200 for 80 bucks plus tax, and BS like that when you can get them online under 40 here in the states..

Also retail stores here sell clones allot of the time, but act like they don't.

All and all I wouldn't care at all, except for the times they act butt hurt seeing you with a new mod you didn't buy at there shop, some times even when they don't carry it...

Your 100% right though, shopping on deals only you can do great here. Only real issue is that it's time consuming, you wonder some times if I wasn't looking so much, how much was that time worth? Randomly you can find some stuff you want at great prices, but allot of times it's stuff you could care less about.. Two years ago, I was interested in all of it, now that I know what I like more then before it's more hit and miss. Plus like I said selection here, vs FT... I couldn't find the OBS engine locally, or on any of the US vendor sites, so I ordered from overseas, then this week it's on some US sites, and I am still waiting on the shipment.

I wish FT would have a US warehouse, I mean they could do it some place cheap as Hell middle America and get allot of space, and then just stock the stuff they don't stock on all the American sites. I really think there is enough of a market, and I would be happy to pay a little more for faster shipping.

I think GB or Focal have a US warehouse. FT should get one too. No doubts, they'll take a fuckload of orders if they did. Plans must be in the pipeline though, who knows? Good for FT and good for customers.

Man, if FT got a US warehouse, imagine the butthurt local vendors would have :D

90% of them would be screaming, "IT's ALL FAKEEEEEEEEEEEE!!"

When they themselves would be buying from FT's US warehouse, oh the irony! :D

How do you like that one? There is an update to crank it up to 60W, the 1500 MAH is OK, kind of on the fence about getting it or not.



I'm not sure we're talking about the same box. The new eVic VTwo mini works at 75watts and I have a Samsung 25R in it at 2500mah. And yes, I like it very much.
