This is my third Coppervape BF kit. The first two I bought direct, one aluminum and one brass. The mods have some kind of clear coat on them. The aluminum one I got direct was a little blemished, the finish on the one from Fasttech is perfect. Whatever, it is aluminum and easily refinished if it gets scratched up. One note on the mod: where the two halves come together is part of the negative connection, so juice, dirt, or oxidation can cause firing problems. Keep it clean, no problem. About the Atty: I love it! But the drip tip sucks. It is too restrictive, and the little plate on the bottom really chokes it out. Probably grinding of the plate would make it work, but I just put a Derringer tip on it. The chuff cap also works well. People talk about juice coming out the bottom vent, well just like anything else, you have to build it right. I use 3mm ID 26ga SS coils, 10 wraps works out to .5ohms dual coil. You NEED dual coils. Position the coils right to the top of the posts. Use enough wick so you can pull each side down and across the bottom vent and tuck it behind the vent. When you prime the wicks, clear the area around the juice screw by pushing the wicks up against the back of the bottom vent. You can squeeze juice right up to the tops of the coils without any going into the vents, or the juice well, for that matter. Remember, it's a squonker, not a dripper. You don't need juice wells, you have a 10ml bottle attached to the atty. You soak the wick and the excess gets sucked back into the bottle. That's the whole point. I've been doing this for over a month with this build with the bottom air vent wide open. No juice comes out the bottom vent, even if I lay the thing on its side on my car seat. Just for fun, I just now sqonked it and stood it upside down. No juice comes out. The airflow coming in at the bottom and top of the coils is great. Lots of vapor, lots of flavor. A great atty if you build it right. The only gripe I have other than the drip tip is the top is so tight that you have to pop it off to adjust the airflow, you can't just twist it. Really a non issue unless you like to fiddle with the airflow constantly.

Great 510 and contacts Bottle is functional Not painted plastic.
CONS
Sloppy assembly Sharp edges need sanding Magnets fell out
The first thing I noticed picking this mod up was that it was uncomfortable to hold because of the sharp 90 degree edges, unlike the original, which are rounded. Fortunately this resin (Delrin?) sands very nicely with excellent results. The 510 is spring adjustable brass and is a Modmaker clone. Best BF 510 I've gotten from FT by a mile. The knurled nut at the bottom of the 510 needed to be tightened considerably. The copper contacts are perfect and do not require work so as not to damage the battery wraps like the Frankies. The bottle is acceptable, maybe I just got lucky, but it works out of the box without any fuss. I will replace it when the SJMY bottle arrives. The magnets stuck to the battery when I opened the door. Two of them repelled each other when I tried to get them off and flew to parts unknown. I taped the remaining one in the middle and it seems to be sufficient. I recommend putting a piece of scotch tape or fingernail polish over the magnets before use. I also sanded a corner of the door to allow opening with a fingernail instead of chimp-slapping it.

Looks good, works well
CONS
Need to shim positve pin Crappy bottle Loose Door
I have four other Frankenskull clones, 3 PC models and the ABS resin gray model. All of them either need a shim under the positive pin to make contact with a standard atty, or a shim on the positive pin of the atty. Not a deal breaker but a definite annoyance. Same with this V3. Same hard bottle, it would work like a charm if they just used the same plastic as the HCigar or Kanger bottles. V3 has a different 510. The little ridges around the perimeter on the top of the 510 create a little air space underneath the atty, I guess this is the "heat insulated" they talk about in the description. The round brass nuts are now round stainless nuts, which seem to work just as well. The magnets on the door protrude, making to much contact with the battery so that the door wobbles a bit and clicks when handling. Slightly annoying, but not bad. The translucent blue looks sweet with my converted V3 Derringer with a blue POM top.

I previously bought this SKU to use as a squonker and it works beautifully. I ordered another one, and it was a fail. I took out the installed copper screw and tried to put in the squonk pin, but it was too big. They have changed to a smaller copper screw and the hole and threading in the positive pin are too small for the squonk, which is the same size as the previous one. The grub screws are also smaller. Now I have a spare squonk pin, and I tossed the rest into a convenient body of water.

Love the mod. Works like a charm, the only issues are the door comes off a bit too easily and the firing button needs to be perfectly aligned in the unlocked position or it catches and clicks when pressed. It tends to wander a bit but so far not a problem. The atomizer isn't really bad, but it ain't good either, not to mention it doesn't even look like it belongs on this mod. I bought a black Hobo v3 dripper SKU 3045000 to go with this, and the combo rocks. Looks and vapes badass. If you buy this setup, do yourself a favor and get a decent bottom feeder like the Hobo. Make *sure* whatever you get has a bottom feed pin.
