No MAP? Seems pricey for PWM box.
There barely more than £30's worth of parts bought individually at retail. Bought en masse in a commercial scenario who knows how ridiculously cheap this box is to make.

Regardless considering previous 2x18650 pot/pwm boxes (such as the HexOhm clones) $60 is a too much for a chinese pwm box especially when chipped boxes such as the Vapor Storm Puma 200W with tank! for $45 ish after MAP why is this $60?



I'd snap it up at $35, maybe $40 but $60 is taking the piss. I'd rather build my own with well known, easily accessable, tried & tested parts:-

using one of Big Al's (numerous) PWM boards. ie:-


using mod makers modmeter v2 lcd readout :-


& 1 of modmakers own boxes:-

You're paying for convenience here, I think. I guess Steam Crave just got sick of all the messages about where to put the Aromamiser Titan and this is the result.

Suggested retail price is $80 and Steam Crave is not El Cheapo.

AuralVirus; TIENES TODA LA RAZON DEL MUNDO, se han pasado demasiado con el precio de esta caja.
FASTTECH. Siempre a destacado por conseguir los mejores precios y no creo que lo que diga Steam Crave y en su lanzamiento sea un problema.
Personalmente para mí se les a ido la mano con este producto. Una lastima la verdad.

Use english, or at least use google translate, not my job to translate your comment. If I went to a spanish or portuguese forum I'd have the respect to use whatever language the majority used.

Exactly, these idiots professionals are supposed to know what they are doing and should portray that ESPECIALLY in their own friggin promo video..
How can anyone take them seriously?

I'm building my own box. I already have a 2 battery squonk pwm box in mind. A 30mm tank / 4 battery box is also desirable.
Hopefully I'll create a followable how to for both : I have a foot op coming up at the end of the month, I won't be very mobile for at least 2 weeks, if not 4 so it'll be an ideal opportunity to fill my time & get creative.

Waiting for the photo review of your exploit. @aural, Big aAl, does he ship to the US? Only visited the site on my mobile and when I put a board in the cart to see the shipping options, it went immediatly to paypal so stopped there.
We can't agree on everything.
