The iJoy Captain is an alright mod in power mode, and doesn't work worth a dam in temperature control since it reads incorrect resistance.
We are all patiently waiting for firmware v1.5 to see if they fix the slew of problems. One fix that is needed is the TCR range, it only goes as high as 200. I use NiFe70 and NiFe52 which has a TCR of 525 and 403. It will also reset back to power mode if you take the batteries out in TCR M1 or M2 mode.

It's a perfect fit for one of my 30mm Aromamizer Plus' with no overhang at all. I thought that the 20700's would be great too, but at the end of the day they are no better than a pair of VTC6's for runtime. My Sanyo 20700b's greatly out last the iJoy's if you vape at medium wattage or lower.
Sanyo makes mods ? Im using clieto 120 at 100 watts and all is good with me.

Im also using this one : asMODus Minikin Boost 155W Mod. I like its Curve option but still prefer the Captain.

Not mods, Sanyo makes some nice 20700 batteries, they have a true 30A 3000mAh versions and a 16A 4250mAh one.
Moochs report on them.

Available a few places.
20700a's

Running in wattage mode you wouldn't notice any of the firmware issues except for the improper resistance reading. That doesn't matter in wattage mode as you just turn up the power a little.

Last addition: Honduran Rosewood Burl. Thinking this will be a full rosewood Scout with no exposed tube.

Took a break from vaping and gave my Bellus + IPV D4 setup to a friend. He ended up using it for a few months, never cleaned it out and ended up getting juice all over the D4, which ended up shorting it out. I got it back from him and tried cleaning it out as best as I could, but the D4 was dead, so I rage bought a Sigelei VR2. The Bellus was salvageable, thankfully.

I really like this setup.

Thank you Russian Overlords. I am still trying to gain ground understanding the different twill options.

Some options naturally feel overcomplicated but I guess make sense for making up on shortcomings.

I am still enjoying the experimentation and enjoying the yields. I've ordered all cord sizes to try and find something that suites a 1.2mm draw.

Yes, ad-nauseam. :stuck_out_tongue:

Today I ventured into the bath salts: IDK seemed counterintuitive but said why not. Short of it is, I think they work. I haven't had particular trouble
with any hot spots with my builds which is why I've forgone the salting as it felt unnecessary. My anecdotes note some minor adjustments with the weaved wire as there are sort of mini-fractals that pop up within the wires. It is very minor, however.

Salting there were no adjustments -- well, except for on the positive, it began to fractal just a touch and with a cinching of the positive nut this went away;
so, bah, not very conclusive.

To clarify; you simply soak your mesh in salted water: burn, rinse, repeat.

Not so burnt out just yet.

Russian Frustrations: From two-four wraps now, I can't find enjoyment through the Tiny. Spaced or not, I can't escape spit-back.
Through the Nextasis I've nailed it. 1.2 is not ideal still but vapes fine. 1.4-1.6mm airflow is the sweet spot.

I'll get a rest week as I wait on my next shipment of cord; plenty of time to mull over ideas

Russian Conquest. 0.1x8 is a treat for MTL. Very well behaved cord. Now to tear down and build up the Tiny.

Probably the biggest PITA I've ever gone through to obtain anything. My T2 wasn't even this much of a bear.

Let's see what the fuss is all about, shall we.

Smok 12 , Cleito 120 , Melo 300. Smok is nice but just like the Big Baby it produces a bad taste and off taste. 120 best taste.. the 300 very nice.

Thought I'd resurrect this thread from it's ashes.

I'm currently rocking a Geekvape Aegis100w (With Nitecore 26650 (4200 mAh)) & Aspire Cleito with a fatboy (5ml). I think it would surprise many with just how good it is. A cracking vape despite it's relatively small price tag (£83 all in). Oodles of flavour with my home made Red Zep juice (70VG/30PG Raspberry / Zeppola), clouds that the heavens' would approve of and more saturation than Davy Jones' locker.

That being said, it leaks like an Alcoholic at Christmas due to the poor seals on the coils. May be advancing towards RTAs due to the leaking. I just have to find out where to start and see if my Reynauds will be an obstacle to making coils. Thinking of maybe the Geekvape Griffin 25 Plus RTA or the Wotofo Serpent SMM, have to find something that's suitable for low wattage vaping preferably, though (30-50W). I can't really justify spending more as I'm still a lightweight vaper (1.5%) and it's recreational rather than habitual with me.

I still love making my own e-juice though :metal:
