RE: What did you get today?
I own several. I read a lot. And when I can't read, I listen to audiobooks. At least when I don't really need to pay attention to what I'm doing.

I think I have had 6 Kindles, one Nook and a couple of Sony devices. I think I currently own 2 Kindles - 3 if I ever get the one back from my mother.

The best made of them by far (The Nook is close to unusable as the switches stick and it scrolls pages as fast as it can) is the Sony I mostly use. Kindles are a lot cheaper than they used to be and their construction reflects this. That said, the Paperwhite is not free or close to it.

If you are into stripping DRM a working first - 5th generation (or thereabouts) Kindle is handy to have around as the reason for the now ten generations of Kindles is more complex DRM, and the older ones don't have the compute power to handle the more complex DRM.

RE: What did you get today?
I got a DHL package from HK. Pics and stuff to follow when I get home. It’s a Vapefly Siegfried kit with a tube mod.

More to come tonight.

RE: What did you get today?
Once I'd made it to my desk, I found this lot inside the bubble wrap. A good one for newbies in any trade is to get them to pop a big roll of bubble wrap in the corner.
















It'll take them a while Big Grin

Again the typically very nice Vapefly packaging and presentation.

RE: What did you get today?
Just ordered a pair of 30A 21700s to put in the thing - since they are 4000mAh they should last a while.

This is not an MTL device and looks to run in the 45-60W range.

Lots of teaser photos to take before I get HerbertSchnauzer chained to the keyboard to write a review of the thing.

I'll try using it exclusively for a couple of weeks like I've done with the Manners pod.

Another device I wouldn't have bought for myself but it'll be fun to try it out.

So the review begins. Sorta, Kinda.

It's big, it's moderately heavy and it is very, very nice.

Is that as big as it looks in the pic?

RE: What did you get today?
It is - 25.2mm diameter. And I'll get a pointlessly accurate length. It is 6.422" long to the end of the drip tip. (163.12mm). It is fairly heavy too at 185.48g without a battery or juice.

There's quite a lot of stuff in the nice box. Though it might be the first device I've had in ages that didn't come with a USB lead Smile

RE: What did you get today?
Got it built which was pretty straightforward.

It's a cloud chucker. Flavour is good. 7ml capacity is useful.
