show me a better 20700/21700 mechanical squonk mod in this price range! ... I only know the "YFTK Pulsar" but the 20700/21700 Kit isn't included.

Vandy vape pulse mod and that 'Hugo squeezer' boxer knockoff that's sprung up recently. They're both cheaper and are bound to perform at least on par with this.

Not gonna lie, this one is tempting, but I'm sure as hell gonna be waiting for reviews before parting with the cash. I've got plenty of mods as it is, no need to add something mediocre to the collection

I gotta admit, I like this also...

Think I made a mistake jumping on the Pulsar as soon as it was listed. (still in route)
Early reports don't sound promising.

Would've been better off paying a little more and getting this Venom X. Really like the delrin mods myself, and the Kimech has been a favorite to date. Maybe i'll snatch this up with the black Friday sale and by then a few "quality" reviews might roll in. ;)

Living is the only thing worth dying for...

Silver oxidises but it’s conductivity is not effected by it. Neither is gold.

Copper can lose around 50% when it oxidises.

So for vaping applications a silver coated copper pin would be the ideal combination of protection, no maintenance and conductivity, whilst remaining economical.

Solid silver pins would be nice but push the price up considerably.

If Chinese cloners got into it the prices would be reasonable. The spot price for the amount of silver required is reasonable.... a good Chinese machine shop just needs to be put on the job.

Is that why we have like "precious" and "semi-precious" metals n'shit? And "snowflake" metals, like really delicate and rare and fragile? Maybe?

Like, we could build an airplane that practically never crashes but it would cost a billion dollars. Build it out of the Black Box, right?

We could have the moon. But first I'd have to take back what I paid for another motherfucker in a motorcade.

^^^^^ on the right track mate.

You can see here, how close copper is to silver , then gold in 3rd and it falls away pretty steeply after that.

Solid silver would not only incur extra price for little performance, but also produce more heat, as it is also the best thermal conductor.

More so than it is electrical vs copper.

I used a freagin tin box for my circuit and it turned out to work just alright. Some might say, "it doesn't hit hard" which is true to an extent but it works. And tin has only 19% conductivity while copper being 100% .. Silver is 120% but fuck we are not trying to win a race or something. Copper works absolutely fantastic, although, I prefer Brass (copper + zinc) any given day because it is not only pretty conductive but strong as fuck too.

So out of all (Silver, copper, gold, aluminum, zing and yada yada), Brass is the best for everything in mods. Why not?

Silver might conduct electricity a tiny bit better than copper, but, arcing wise, copper is way better than silver.
Both oxidize relatively fast tho.

For high amps applications the pure metals are'nt the best.
Powder metallurgy (ex: metal + carbon) and alloys (ex: copper + beryllium) are better.

@Coops72
You don't have any idea on the scale of what your picture is showing.
It is showing nanoohms differences between each metal.

Is important to take note of it when you have long wires of the stuff, or the wires have a very small cross section.
But for high amps contacts it is not what matter the most.
