RE: What did you get today?
Got an auto-squonking IPV device with a DTL atty. Which IPV call the Finder RDA. That won’t get used because I also got a Holic MTL RDA which will get used. Also got a pair of Sense Blazer Nano tanks mainly because they were next to free.

Hi Don - you will enjoy the Holic - one of my favourites.

RE: What did you get today?
I'll need to dig out the camera and get some pics. I'm intrigued by the auto-squonk feature.

So here we go. This post is brought to you by Herbert the crochet schnauzer Smile

The loot haul today - well it was yesterday but it wouldn't fit in my letterbox so I took the red card to the PO (Which is between my house and my work so is hugely convenient) and got the package. This is what was in it.

Some time later after I got home.
Some people like box shots...

The mod: Front
[Image: 50274904413_5c149025d0_b.jpg]

Back - it's a 6ml tank. Manual squonking is not an option - the tank is hard plastic and would break rather than squidge.
[Image: 50275584716_32370a330b_b.jpg]

Battery compartment. The door seems robust which I believe has been an issue with some IPV mods. The hinge is sprung.
[Image: 50275738682_1ac814b07d_b.jpg]

I appear to have forgotten to take a pic of the top. Ah well.

Stuck a pair of 18650s in it and here is the boot screen.
[Image: 50274903588_1dc1b6cfde_b.jpg]

I've not yet read the instructions but it's time to throw an atty on it. The Holic looks like it'll do the job so I swap the solid pain for a BF pin. This is of typical Vapefly quality and comes with lots of spares. And the T shaped screwdriver - pity one of the three wasn't a hex driver for the coil screw instead of a fairly useless narrow flat head driver. You know, a normal screwdriver head. It has a wide one and a narrow one and a Philips/Posidriv head which does fit the squonk pin to screw it in nicely.

The typically nice Vapefly packaging.
[Image: 50274904013_d78b7922c3_b.jpg]

And here it is...
[Image: 50275585441_744cf25b46_b.jpg]

The bare atty in place. The hex head grub screws hold the coil in, the flat head ones control the side airflow. You get a spare set that may have different sized holes in them. I've not pulled out the ones that came with it to see.
[Image: 50275585211_f9ac36f93b_b.jpg]

The coils provided - this is a single coil only MTL device. They say 1 ohm but read at 0.84ohms.
[Image: 50275739612_9d3b12d3fa_b.jpg]

The coil installed. It may just be me but it seemed a little more fiddly than I remember but since I very rarely replace coils these days (but replace cotton often) this is no biggie. There are far worse things to install coils in - Big Fogger I'm hating on you! Since I was using the supplied "1 ohm" Ni80 coils I didn't have my coiling tools to hand so used the aiglet from the supplied Firebolt cotton (You get two fox tails of it that'll wick 4 times.) to set the coil height. The little grooves to set the coil height are AFAIK unique to Vapefly and are a brilliant idea that every manufacturer ought to copy. I was determined to set it up with just the supplied bits and bobs but had to go dig out my building kit for the cotton cutting scissors and the wire cutters.
[Image: 50275584976_b192e66f5f_b.jpg]

With Firebolt cotton I always pull it most of the way through as there's more than enough for the next rewicking.
[Image: 50275739437_df6832acba_b.jpg]

Trimmed and tidied up. You could - and quite possibly should - use less but I used more because of the auto-squonk feature. I did juice up the coil before firing it though.
[Image: 50275739242_677802fc76_b.jpg]

Set up some vaguely useful looking settings. I may well read the manual next. Yes Eddie - it does do 0.1W steps but probably not above 100W.
[Image: 50275584476_152cf5fc07_b.jpg]

Filled the tank with some 6mg Just Jam juice as that was the nearest bottle.

So how does it vape?

Very nicely if you ask me. I had to back it down to around 17W as at 18-20 the vape with the airflow I'd set was a little too hot for my taste. Around 17W just the way I like it.

The auto squonk - whose settings I've yet to read the manual to find out about - pulses around once a second and it hasn't yet dribbled or leaked on me. That said, I've spent more time photographing and typing than vaping on this...

Enjoy folks!

RE: What did you get today?
It'd have been much more work if I'd dug out the decent camera instead of using the phone to take the pics.

These two things may not be unconnected...

RE: What did you get today?
I just noticed that there are airflow markings on the "posts" beside the airflow screws. You can see those markings quite clearly in the 12th photo. I had just eyeballed them wide open before I installed the coil. Another neat Vapefly feature.

RE: What did you get today?
The auto squonk definitely needs turning up. Now for some rewicking. I take a roughly two second draw that is three pulses of the autosquonk motor. This either needs more pulses or more volume pumped.

It is going to need rewicking soon. Definitely with less cotton. It may be is pumping enough juice but may need priming. Time to read the manual once I've rewicked it.

RE: What did you get today?
The mod will charge via USB. It'll take 2A at 5V if your USB power supply can handle that.

Of course, this really isn't recommended. Once it finishes topping off the cells, I'll check what their actual voltages are.

Don't use USB for charging!

This is the only time I'll do it on this mod.

Really, really don't charge via USB!

RE: What did you get today?
Both read at 4.15V when I got bored with waiting.

So acceptable, but still don't do this - they were within 1 millivolt before I put them in the mod.
