RE: What did you get today?
Turns out the RX200 voltmeter is a very bad joke. Did the five clicks to turn it off followed by holding down all three buttons for ten seconds to get the cell voltages. They were fresh from a (balancing) charger at 4.2V each. The RX200 read the three cells as 4.20V, 4.28V (which would be very alarming if true as I'd never dare charge that cell again), and 4.12V. If the USB charging (not that I'll ever use it) is that unreliable (presumably it uses the same circuitry to measure the voltage) about reading voltage the results could be nasty.

Not at all reassuring.

I really would not recommend using the USB charging on this mod as the voltage readings are in dangerous territory - the 4.2V cell that read as 4.12V could be charged to 4.28V which is well past what it is wise to charge an 18650. You may well get away with this for a few cycles but the very best that is going to happen is that the cell will have a drastically shortened life.

On discharge it seems to be fine - every time the cells have come out at exactly the same voltage. So it works fine apart from USB charging.

I didn't use the RX200 for 3 days before it found the drawer. Just didn't live up to the online reviews. Kind of like a hamburger with no salt.

Not knowing what a RX200 voltmeter is, I did a search, everyone saying the same thing
Firmware upgrade ?

Did you swap batteries about to see if it read the same battery with a different voltage this time :0

RE: What did you get today?
The whole three battery thing really pisses me off. I would much rather have a dual 26650 device. I have a BC box dual 26650 series which might have been  the best mod I owned. And it cost below 100 dollars Canadian. Problem was it fogged up the house so badly my wife made me trade it. So I use 26650 tube mods now ( I own two - FGG and Althus). I'm trying to find a beast mod for sale but I will get the Tesla Invader diual 26650 one day if I cannot. That is assuming my wife will allow me one again, lol. You have to be very careful with the dual 26650s. Build too low and the damn cotton can burn and flame!!! But it is so worth it.

On another note I might be picking upo the limited edition Praxis with the Derringer. It is the cloud chaser edition. A guy has an authentic that he never uses and I'm working hard to get the bugger, lol. I like it more than the Ruby Kennedy - well I already have the Kennedy 24 atty on my Althus so ... jeez I am so addicted to vape gear!!

What you need to do is go crazy like me and buy mod after mod. Here is a mod on the way to me ... DarkRonin Triton with authentic Dark Horses

A new bottom feed atty with a very small chamber so flavour should be excellent.

Thanks Eddie!!!
