...the Boxer is 10 times better than a Frankie with just a bottle swap. =) How about this way? All contacts are made out of Beryllium Copper and the square contact on 510 connector is made out of Oxygen free copper.

nice work! quick question, what size is the threading for the square copper contact? i dont really have the tooling to make a fancy oxygen free copper one from scratch, but was thinking i could get a similar effect using a copper nut with the right threading.

any idea what size would fit?



The size of the threads depends on, what kind of 510 connector, you would chose to use. I used Italian ModDog Nano-22, it's positive part has M5.5 pitch 0.5mm threads and I have threaded my square copper contact accordingly. But if you chose to use Varitube VT510, you would thread it M3.5 pitch 0.6mm. And ModMaker MM510 uses M3.0 pitch 0.5mm. But if you chose to keep, the factory installed Chinese connector, then you need M4.0 pitch 0.7mm. And Fat Daddy (and it's Chinese clones), are not threaded, you are going to have to press fit your contact.
Unfortunately, Beryllium Copper has almost the same conductivity of Brass, which is a lot worse then pure copper. I chose to use it, for its springiness, that pure copper does not poses. A sheet of pure silver, would be a better choice, because it is both conductive and springy.

bf pins

No one has commented about the Reload so you will have to measure your pin and take a chance. Your reload is one where the top of the 510 pin is visible when you look down on the deck I hope. If you find one that fits let us know here and I will add your comment.



I've made a BF pin for my Reload 22mm. It looks like this:

As you can see, it is "diametrically challenged". I could only fit Ø2.0 mm (M2 threaded) and, as shown on the picture, my first one broke. I had to make another one, with even smaller hole inside Ø1.2 mm, but it works.

They sell one with a pin don't they? I am sure if you have one you don't want to buy another for the pin, but ehh it is the easier route right.

For anyone interested in a squonking Derringer: SKU 8528701 fits SKU 4567500 perfectly, like it's made for it.

Maybe it's alreaady mentioned somewhere, but I just wanted to leave it there.

Not many Derringer V3's to pick up unfortunately, just a few ugly options. For the full RDA, but maybe I missed some in my search.

ive bought a regular one and bought the base seperately. SKU 2134501 has a POM (or even Delrin?) sleeve, which is nice because it's so lightweight. fits the base as well perfectly.

had a derringer a year ago, but gave it away eventually, shoudln't have done it :( well.

150g fully loaded with battery and all.
Opted for a dripbox or the istick thingy, but this little guy is just as functional and really cool. Love it!
Its a shame that the VW squonkers tend to be so HUGE.

Any of you guys know if there's a driptip adapter for the flave RDA?? I do like the RDA, just hate the driptip, a 510 adapter would be heavenly
