A pic of three setups one old one.
The K-100 has a V5, one large airhole, dual coil, 1.2 ohm microcoil with cotton. Nice lung hits. 

The omega has the pulse on top. I got rid of the mesh and went with cotton on it as well, 1ohm micro coil on it. I made the cotton a little small for the hole so I can actually tip and drip. 

The megalodon in the middle has been with me for years now. This was my first modern mechanical mod that I didn't build myself. It was a gift from the developer and actually a prototype I think it was number five if I remember correctly. You can see the similarity to the K-100. Although it doesn't telescope it does take 18650's or 18350's. Notice the locking button on the bottom.  It's small for an 18650 mod and in small mode it's tiny. It has an SM-20 on it. 1.1 ohms single micro-coil cotton. I love this little dripper. It's my favorite by far. The hole has also been drilled out bigger, it's a warm hit and it's just a cloud monster without killing your throat.  

Check out the SM-20 someday, it's dirt cheap and super easy to set up with a single micro-coil. It has holes in the posts and you don't need a screwdriver or allen wrench. It has the little thumb twist nobs. It does need a bigger air hole but other than that it's perfect. Four wraps of 28 gauge on a 1/16 drill bit is about perfect for me.

RE: A pic of three setups one old one.
3 nice setups there - I really like that Megalodon in the middle, that's a nice looking Mod.

I recently won the Aluminium version of the dripper on RY4radio and it's great but I think being ALu instead of stainless it drastically mutes the flavour.

I'm impressed enough though that I'll definitely be looking for the SS version real soon - great little dripper, in fact I'd go as far as to say absolutely awesome dripper.

Oh and I love the kecig K100 series... incredibly sturdy and just perfect to hold and use for prolonged comfort. Thanks for sharing

Nice setups!!

I also like the Megalodon!  Went looked around for it and it is out of my price range!  Look like it would be super sweet in the small mode!

RE: A pic of three setups one old one.
Thanks guys, it's amazing how things have come along so fast. I don't remember exactly when I got the megalodon but it's wasn't more than five years anyway. At that time if you wanted the same setup with a rebuildable dripper you would be looking at a minimum of $200. I think that omega and SM-20 would run under $20 for the two of them. I have run them together and that is also a great setup. As far as I remember the Don was the first mod to have the locking button on the bottom. So I look at the K-100 as a sort of clone I suppose. In some ways it's actually nicer. It telegraphs which is cool, the threads are actually nicer than the Don I have. But I think he worked that out later. The switch is also funky on this one and the K-100 is actually a little better design. I end up locking my Don out by unscrewing the center sections. I modified the button switch on it shorty after I got it because it was too hard to find the right spot to spin it to. But the Don is small and light so that makes it really nice in it's own way. Plus it's very well broken in. I know I have dropped it at least a hundred times over the years.

RE: A pic of three setups one old one.
the prodigy v3 is from about the same era, not sure which came first though. back then, you wanted a locking button mod, you were limited. 
the two mentioned, super t precise, i think the golden greek... there was no china made mechs at all

I tossed my k100. dropped it a couple times and the button was cocked sideways bad, and dented the shit out of the bottom of the cells. it wasnt even a month old i dont think

and i dont recall seeing anything rebuildable atty/tank wise until about a year later, and then it was pretty much DIY or if you were lucky get in on a group buy of a custom run. raidy did not want people to benifit financially from his design, he wanted it open source. that didnt last as you can see

RE: A pic of three setups one old one.
Yep this did come out before rebuildables. There were a few people just starting to try and rebuild the cisco atties if I remember correctly. I remember when the CHUCK came out and came close to buying one a few times but never did. At that time I had a boatload of box mods. I had a GTS a bronze one and also a 5volt GLV that was pretty trick for back then too. Actually I still have it. Now that I think about it the GLV was actually my first "modern Mod".

RE: A pic of three setups one old one.
that GLV is nice too, was also another one I was considering. But if I remember right, they were never in stock, like the GG and the Precise, when I ordered my Prodigy
You can tell thats an early model, and been around the block a few times

RE: A pic of three setups one old one.
Yep it's an early one. Still works although I Just modded it, after posting the picture, to 3.7 volts and I am using an e-fest IMR 950mah 14650 in it. The C rating on it isn't too bad and it will actually handle lower ohms fairly well but I don't go below about 1.2 with it. I'm hitting it right now for the first time in a long time. I put a M5 RDA on it that is 5 or 6 coils of 28 on a 1/16 drill bit, cotton. Bigger hole in it. Pretty nice hit really. Big mod though for little run time. I wish they would make a really small PV that takes the 14650. Something that it would just barely fit in.

I also put a fresh momentary button switch in it. I have enough of them so I might as well use them.

RE: A pic of three setups one old one.
Have you checked out Super T? They have the Precise Plus and Simplicity in 14500. They dont have dimensions listed, but I remember from reviews they are tiny.
They are not cheap mods though...

edit: noticed you said 14650 not 14500, so scratch that
