Very nice, Don!  That actually looks like a garage tool (and I mean that in a good way!) and appears very industrial and purposeful.  Appears as if you could beat a tie rod free from it's pin with that baby and it would be unscathed.  I like it!  Big_boss

To me it has a sort of 1920's Modernist look to it - for some reason it reminds me of 1920's-30's speedboats.

I think I might spring the five euros + post for a real GG fire button for it, that hexagonal button and my pinky just don't get on.

But I might just round off the corners and top with a file.

To my surprise, the parts appear to be sanely enough priced - I think you could build one of these from parts for less than it cost to buy one. Just checked, you can't but there's very little in it.

Your Iatty might work in hybrid mode on it.
Turns out the Iatty has different threads, this'll only work with the Ithaka. Sad

But it'd work in 510 mode.

I'm more and more of the opinion that the 510 connector isn't close to ideal. Hopefully the makers (Or more importantly for me, the cloners) will standardise on something like a 20mm thread. It'd be much harder to damage that.

What a fantastic piece of hardware this is!  Absolutely incredible that something this nice can sell for a measly $35.

At last! That was a long wait.
Mine's with Gords just now and heading to Spas shortly. It now has a second air hole (Thanks Gords!) :yahoo:and an O ring in the base which means it isn't just the cell wrapping stopping it from shorting now. The Caravela has the same problem.

What sort of wicks and coils have you put in it?

There's one in it. I thought you might not have one. 
Can your charger take them? If it's a Trustfire or a WF-139 then all you need is a 15mm spacer - I can bung one of those in the post no problem.

I use copper coins stacked up and taped as a spacer in mine, in case your charger will not take them

RE: What did you get today?
It should be in the post at weekend. Its not bad. Personally I prefer thr ikarus, vaping them side by side, the ikarus for me works better, although the switches are pretty much identical.
