I know some folks have had bad experiences with Wismec mods, but I haven't with any of the five (I think) I own. They have a reputation for poor 510 connectors but I don't swap atties very much. The RX200 with the updated (250W) firmware followed by Arctic Fox firmware has had a lot of atty swaps. It is the highest wattage one I own though I strongly suspect my DNA200s can actually output more power at 200W than the Wismec can at 300W.

I'll check on durability obviously, my mods tend not to have a very easy life, but the Hotcig might suit you TW.

Hi TW - I can understand your feelings regarding Wismec but the lower powered ones have never had issues - I have lots but none that go higher than 80W.

RE: What did you get today?
I also got a "something expensive just happened" light on the dash. It appears to be exhaust related soma just be baked sensor or a pinhole in the exhaust. Or may not be.

Now trying to get my Bluetooth OBCD2 interface to speak to my phone so I can see what is actually failing or has failed.

I have one of those. I like all the extra stuff you can do via the app, but connecting is always iffy. So I got a standard corded one too for the quick diags when I don't feel like spending 30 minutes getting the damn thing to talk to the phone.

Unfortunately, my daily driver is pre-OBDII so all I can do for that is the paper clip and morse code deal.
But it's helped a lot with that needy Durango!

I hope it is not too costly Don - These kind of things are a PITA.

If it is the exhaust, I may be able to pull it off and braze it.

I suspect wiring or a sensor though.

Turns out the issue is an Apple one. iOS only supports Bluetooth 4 and up.

Same here, I must admit the RX200 is one of the most comfortable mods i own fits in the hand perfectly Smile even for an old mod, I would deff have another one Good the RX300 not so much, so they will get used outside when fishing lol got an extra one for free or sent by mistake lol pity i don't get them for free often lol

SR, I find the best-fitting mods I have are the Wismec single cell squeeze to fire mods.

The RX75 and Sinuous P80 mods are excellent...

How's the taste testing going Eddie?

Feel free to be extremely critical, I want to make these mixes better.
