Modded Scar
So I finally decided that after all, the Scar Atomizer was just unable to perform right for me no matter what I did. The concept of the airflow running under the coils is great but the actual design and implementation in the case of the Scar was poorly designed and ill thought out.

Out of pure frustration I decided "What the hell!" and drastically modified it.

I've basically blocked the original air intake inside and decided to drill a 6mm hole directly into the side of the chamber wall (lined up with the coil) and do away with the dual coil setup.

I placed a high carbon spring steel metal ring around the outside of the chamber for controlling the airflow. With the hole fully open it measures in at 5mm - I can close the hole fully closed if I want.


Result = The most incredible unit I could ever have imagined. It's able to chug vapour just like Rip Trippers but also able to give a normal draw vape.

I'm pretty stoked how this turned out as I was ready to throw the darn thing in the bin prior to this modification.


Pics below. Please ignor the crappy lighting and what looks like a horrible atty, in real life it looks great and shiny.

"I dont really like an airy draw" lol.

Nice job, how did you secure the spring steel to make a flush ring?

RE: Modded Scar
Already armed with a response to that very question here is one I made earlier Big Grin

The spring steel that holds the ball bearing in place in this image is the ring I used. It's hellish tight on the scar but I'd rather that than it slip around with the slightest touch.

PS.. that's a 1/2 inch adapter - not 3/8

RE: Modded Scar
Thanks guys, it's working so well that I never thought I'd ever say it but... with this mod the scar is even outperforming the Igo-L - Not joking!

I'm so glad I didn't throw it in the bin now, because it was close I can tell you Smile
