IPV8
While in the area, I stopped in at the local B+M this evening. Employee was over the moon with apparent excitement in his efforts to show me the new "tester" demo of the new IPV8.

The nice suede ascents on the grip is smooth and feels nice, the battery door appears more snug and the locking mechanism appears to have a tighter tolerance/contact to the mod body. The hinge however feels similarly flimsy as on the IPV6.

The s/w upgrade I was told is a significant improvement over the IPV6. I enjoy my Sig 213 - they are not that different in size and feel - if something happened to my 213, I would consider getting one.... Tongue

RE: IPV8
So basically instead of fixing the problems they had with 6 they just made a V8 and left people to "deal" with the 6 problems...LOL
Here's a big F.U to P4U

RE: IPV8
Every company has a swing and a miss, and I'm not just talking about vaping. It's a sub-hundred dollar vaping device. It's not like General Motors and the exploding Sierra gas tanks, for wick's sake.

Good point TW - HEX OHMS has a lifetime warranty - after having mine maybe 2-3 months, it stopped working - ONE email to the manufacturer and a return code and address provided. I paid shipping down, they paid return....a few weeks and I had my mod again.

Of course that comes with a price - they list for CDN$229.00 at my local shop...

RE: IPV8
If I recall, P4U or at least it's stateside distribution center will replace it as long as you pay shipping too. It's bordering on sour grapes for NHL here... Lol
