A whopping 16 watts?

Careful now... you're rapidly entering into Phil Busardo territory here!! LOL! ;-)

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

LOL No danger of that, I couldn't vape mtl, I have always vaped a restricted direct to lung but realised I didn't need to run the size of coil i was running to get a good vape.

Through experimenting i have settled on a 3mm ID coil with 0.5mm Kanthal but only 4 spaced wraps.

Comes out at .37 ohm and with a cut down airflow on an arbiter 1 it vapes really well at 16 watts :)

Since going with the QP Juggerknot MR single coil attys, I too have dropped. 17 watts.

Trying the larger bore tips of atomizers such as the Geekvape Zeus X, that I used for years, seems too much now.

I noticed photos of the G class had no battery door underneath, so either it's just a complete mock-up, (most likely) or a magnetic door will be used...yeah, I know, it's just wishful thinking!

Kato Mech Mod (18650)

I have one but would like to have a new one and/or the mini version. I have many mech mods but this was by far my favorite.



Kato...wow. I sadly missed them out. And was hopelessly searching for a 18500 for a good while.

Also would love to see back the Ignition base, in different colours with a nice finish, maybe in different versions, one that takes 24mm attys as well.
Found a pic about the original



Now, the clones - luckily - worked with hybrid mods too.

I am looking to either purchase a used but working Wismec NC2 25 or, learn how to test the circuitry, so I can fix my switch.

I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

Evic VTC Mini with bottom battery flap, resized for 23/24mm tanks and a well designed compact 21700 form could be interesting, they worked so well and still have about 10 here, unused.

(The DragX Plus Pro is a really great size but goes into deep sleep all the time, annoying to the point of unusable for regular use IMO.)

More recent but discontinued, a Sinuous P80 revamp might be nice as well...the fire button isn`t particularly durable and misfires with age when the microswitch goes "soft".

I have the V2 arbiter, do you use dual or single coil? I use dual and prefer 3MM, they fit in there but it is tight, and restricts the airflow a little, not much and it is still a good draw. If your dual but don't mind 2.5MM coils they will fit better.

I prefer always 3MM, so I don't gravitate to using it as much as I probably would if it had a little more open deck.

It's a good RTA, I wouldn't put it in the great category due to the tighter deck. The draw is good, not to loud, the flavor is nice, not amazing but it's good, it is the other shortness area the flavor isn't the best ever, it is very good overall but I have had better, and surely much worse. I have only used it so far with fruit flavors, maybe cream custard deserts it would do better.

It is easy to build and wick, and is I would say an above average RTA. I can't speak for the V1, I didn't have it. That removable chimney piece I thought was kind of a bad idea overall.

I would say the pro's outweigh the cons with the arbiter V2, it is worth getting.

DL is not my home field, but right now I use a ZeusX clone every now and then... dual 3mm id... tho as i said, i just adventuring left and right with DL stuff...
have rda, I think the citadel with single 3mm ID fused clapton, a bellus v1 rta with 26ga kanthal 2,5mm id, dual coil, also have a ridiculous build in a Kennedy. IDK probably something like 20ga round khantal 3,5 or 4mm id dual... just for laughs :D and i only listed what i liked so far... I didn't liked the zeusX with mesh deck nor my Kylin M clone... probably mesh isn't for me.
so no preferences here... just wanna try stuff that dl-ers think great. just for fun.

Probably would build Richy's 16Watts wonder just to try what it feels like... i mean... I only tried DL with bigger coils, or dual, and wasn't able to vape them below 30W...

Bellus & Zeus X were two of my favourite RTAs as well.


I have two of the Arbiter v1 so cant speak of the V2. If one likes top airflow such as the Zeus X, the Arbiter is just made far better than the Zeus so you don't have all the fiddling one had with the Zeus X.
But, at least in my case, I found the flavour of the authentic Zeus X a wee bit better than the Arbiter.

But gave that wee bit of flavour up for a far better machined atomizer.


I use the V1 dual coil. Never tried single coil on it. But no flooding or any other issues at all on the v1 for me.
