RE: What did you get today?
Got a slew of product to review from Da One Tech. I'm starting with the Barrel. So far it's a crackin' little device. Very nice flavor, top fill, adjustable AFC, tiny and solid. Wow. Best little pod I've used in awhile.

RE: What did you get today?
Three RDAs and an RTA. Arrived pretty promptly from 3aVape and cost very little. All four have nice and easy to build Velocity style decks. All four appear to shut down to almost no airflow and all can provide for sillywatt vaping if required. All are 810 sized drip tips but two of them come with 510 adapters. Pics to follow once I get home.

RE: What did you get today?
First build - complicated by the only wire I could find being 0.25mm Kanthal and 0.63mm SS316L.

The atty is reminiscent of the Tobeco Torque though with a Velocity style deck and honking great air holes. It didn't come with a squonk pin Sad

[Image: 49919612688_4bbb688546_b.jpg]

Rather poor pic of the deck. This uses an unusually small Allen key (hex key) as none of the ones in my build kit fitted, they were all too big. Just look at that massive air slot. There's another just like it on the other side.

[Image: 49920126481_94c496897a_b.jpg]

The deck from above. Up to several sillywatts the airflow ought to be adequate.

[Image: 49919612333_594c96922d_b.jpg]

The bottom end.

[Image: 49920126531_4b280f7177_b.jpg]

I quite liked (autoincorrect changed this to "licked" first try) the packaging.

[Image: 49919612688_4bbb688546_b.jpg]

I really liked this warning - don't be an idiot with hybrids.

[Image: 49919613033_a6a730f9a9_b.jpg]

The usual accessories came in a nice cardboard tube about the size of an 18650 with soft plastic bungs at each end. A blue screwdriver (not needed on any fastener on the device), a bunch of O rings, a rather nice SS 510 adapter and four spare tiny grub screws for the posts. And a very small gauge Allen key 1.2mm (3/64"). I had to dig out another 357/LR44/AG13/10L14 battery to put in the callipers to find that out Smile

[Image: 49919613818_d93f56c513_b.jpg]

Took the golf ball diameter drip tip off and fitted the 510 adapter.

Then threw in a quick build. Unfortunately all I could find was 0.25mm Kanthal or 0.63mm SS316L and I wanted about an ohm so the hair fine (30gauge) Kanthal it was - just hope I can wick it without destroying the coils. The crappy build with very thin Kanthal is only in there till I find some more suitable wire. Strangely enough as it was completely at random, the first mod I grabbed is also Sense branded.

Like I said, crappy build. But it'll do till I find more suitable wire. Those coils may not survive wicking, let alone rewicking.

You wouldn't want the mod Eddie, it goes in 1W increments. But the pair of 18650s in the mod cost considerably more than the mod and atty combined...

RE: What did you get today?
It's not an MTL atty - even with the air holes closed there's still humongous airflow through those giant bottom slots. Having tried some tape over most of the slots, the flavour is pretty good.

RE: What did you get today?
Another day, another atty. OK, it actually arrived yesterday.

This time it is a Youde (UD) Anzu RDA. Another cheap 3avape atomiser. Again no squonk pin Sad

Again a Velocity type deck - in fact the bottom half looks very much like the Herakles atty from yesterday.

But before I start it's time to find some more sensibly sized Kanthal wire.

This one will shut down the air better than the Herakles from yesterday. IT also comes with a nice 510 adapter and drip tip.

RE: What did you get today?
The box.
[Image: 49923158258_68c4efd8f6_b.jpg]

The other side of the box
[Image: 49923984202_a3c138e7e7_b.jpg]

What's in the box. That's an 810-ish drip tip. The 510 adapter is a nice chunk of stainless steel as is the provided (quite large bore for a 510) drip tip. The 510 tip is the chunk of SS on the right of the box. The goodie bag on the lower right of the box and has four spare grub screws for the posts and what looks like a full set of O rings. No blue screwdriver or anything else for the post screws. Cheap Youde... But the screws are slotted heads so this shouldn't be an issue for anyone who owns another atty.
[Image: 49923983522_d1aac227fd_b.jpg]

The three main parts. My plan will be to shut the massive bottom airflow off and rely on the more controllable side air flow onto the coils.
[Image: 49923156693_47c5c7c6cb_b.jpg]

The deck from above. Look familiar?
[Image: 49923157503_b3c25e4803_b.jpg]

With the provided adapter and 510 drip tip. Again a very familiar base section.
[Image: 49923158963_03f21e91e6_b.jpg]

Now it's time to go on a Kanthal hunt...

More pics and a build in a bit.

Hi Don - It still looks like a pretty airy RDA.

RE: What did you get today?
It is. But can be shut down without taping over air holes.

Here's an 0.45 ohm build in it.
[Image: 49923352973_5bc0f08c61_b.jpg]

Not the prettiest build in history but it works.
[Image: 49923352693_6242718b08_b.jpg]

Now to vape it some.

RE: What did you get today?
It's a cloud chucker - no real flavour at all from 150-15W.

Even wide open at 150W it was a hot vape - it was too hot for me down to around 100W.

Ah well, it was very cheap.

DTL at 150W and 18mg juice is a bad combination - headache incoming.

Another mod and atty combination that cost rather less than the two 18650's in it.
