RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Short answer, probably.

The Inbox is smaller and lighter, it has 0.1W increments all the way through. It has what is probably the best TC out there and is very cheap for a DNA mod.

Is it enough better to be worth twice as much? Not so sure about that. My only objection to the Wraith is the bottom door which I find a little annoying. Teh Inbox is much nicer in that respect.

At the time I got the Inbox, it was fractionally cheaper than the Wraith. Though you got an atty with the Wraith and not with the Inbox. You can now get the Wraith for under 30 quid delivered from the UK (While stocks last I reckon.) I have a source for new bottles, dip tubes and so on for the Wraith and they cost little so the spares situation with either is not an issue.

The DNA chipset really does require connecting to a Windows PC to really play with it. This may, or may not be an issue. It sort of is for me as the only reason I keep this Windows box around is actually to run Escribe.

The Inbox is USB chargeable and the DNA chipset gets this right. Which may, or may not be useful to you. Teh DNA chipset is the only one I'd trust to charge cells properly in the mod. This is pretty moot with a single cell mod but is nice to know. If the current source allows it (Phone charger or the like) it will charge at an amp and not the 500mA you get from a computer USB port. This is a little thing but it is one of those nice to have things.

The gist of this long answer really is: I don't know.

Both are good, the Inbox is IMO a little nicer.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I may add, I am not using the TC though I might play with it at some point. I have nickel, titanium and stainless steel wires here if I feel the desire to play.

My Charm atomiser from Focalecig has shipped so I might put a TC build in it when it arrives. But since I tend to over squonk anyway, I've only had about one dry hit on a squonker ever.

Having taken a quick look at UK sellers wanting over £100 for it - it is definitely not worth 4 times what you can get another Wraith for. I paid just over £60 for mine from Gearbest but that does mean chipping from China.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
The Inbox is IMHO a great little mod at the price. Battery case is perfect, the atomizer it comes with is not half bad (even has a ulthem cap), DNA chip is very accurate, and it is well built.

I found the wraith a bit clunky and I did not as Don mentioned like the battery case at all. And that case gets worse with time and usage.

Strangely I find myself using the Pico squeeze quite a bit and the squeeze is really cheap. I have a NarDa on the squeeze so that may be why I like it though, lol. I also tend to pick up my Reo more.

The worst of the bunch I found was the Therion. That battery case was a piece of s@#t. But the new Lost Vape ones I hear are going to very good (halcyon was not bad).

Today I would rather just buy the SXK Billet Box. Not cheap but really nice. It is 70w of goodness. And you can change out parts with authentic (boro/exocet/rba) so not a bad deal. Costs around 140 Can here but doable.

And yes, the BB is a CLONE and I still like it.

Organic cotton from Amazon USD$5.18 through Amazon from Cotton Labo and it is actually shipped from JAPAN! Tongue I purchased 200 pcs bag and even with giving some away I still probably have 150 pcs Smile Each gets cut into 4-5 strips.....probably the best vaping value! Tongue

OK, not exactly a show quality build, but the latest one for me, anyway... Parallel singles on the EHPro Big Buhhda deck. Simple, yet quite effective.
