Hammer Clones and Voltage Drop.
The hammer is notorious for having a large voltage drop and while it is very cool looking it doesn't preform all that well.

Just wanted to let folks know that if you replace the 510 connection cap with one of the various King-Chi-You flat caps with silver plated pins the voltage drop is way reduced and the hammer actually preforms pretty well.

I'm running one right now with a kayfun Clone in the shop and it's hitting pretty good.

The same cap can also fit on an Astro clone and improves the performance.

Cheers Mark, I didn't know the 510 was also a problem. I knew about the switch ass'y though

For some reason once I changed the plate even air flow seems better. Could just be a hotter coil but vapor production is much improved.

RE: Hammer Clones and Voltage Drop.
Yeah, the springloaded 510 center pin was always the issue with the Hammers. As soon as I received mine I switched it out with the one from my brass King.  The King's switch added also made it all match but was not necessary as the switch, at least in my example, is actually pretty good.  Once I had my ChiYou flat top connectors in brass and stainless I'd run one of them.  When I use an atty like the Squape that breathes through the 510 connection I use the King's connector with all 4 intake holes bored to 2mm each.  It breathes like no one's business with the only restriction in airflow coming form the atty itself.  I've also bored out the squape intakes and center hole to 2mm.  Lung hits no problem now!

Now that I've switched around the switch and 510 connections to opposite positions I can run 18650 cells and keep the sleek pipe profile without it looking like an asthmatic inhaler.  It kicks total ass now and is still my favorite mod! Big Grin
