Thus far, between the two, the Herakles is way better, which is strange given the nearly identical bases. The top caps aren't interchangeable though. I just tried.

RE: What did you get today?
Tomorrow's atty looks like a beehive mated with a spaceship Smile

Hopefully I'll remember to use zero nic juice this time.

I once tried 20mg salt nic DTL at 250W. It was smooth - no coughing at all - but that headache was truly memorable.

Trying 20mg nic juice at 250W is a recipe for coughing up your toenails...

If you want to run a flavour free atty at mad watts - the Fishbone XS is your atty. No juice I've ever come across works at those watts. Best just vaping straight VG at that power.

And today's atty.

It's another Asmodus device - this time it's the Galatek RDA. It's a strange looking gadget.

Obligatory bad box shot - taken in a hurry at my office desk.

Bottom of the box: As it says, it comes with a BF pin so it'll get chucked on the DNA squonker in case it needs a lot of watts. After DTL hitting 18mg juice last night, this time it'll be on zero nic till I get some settings on it that work for me.

Just to maintain the suspense, here's the inside of the box. I've not yet looked at the deck on this one. I'm expecting another Velocity type deck.

See what I mean about a spaceship that got jiggy with a beehive.

What's in the box.

Strange looking device right enough. Can the drip tip be changed.

Looks to be 810 sized so likely a 510 adapter would work. It will shut down air quite nicely.

But with the supplied coils it really is DTL only - the coils don't make any vapour till around 50W.

RE: What did you get today?
So here it is with the supplied Claptons. Which were a little tricky to fit as the supplied Allen key (1.5mm) which was fine for installing the squonk pin was far too big to fit the post screws. Fortunately the one that came with the Herakles fitted just fine.

The slots the coils go in to have good depth so I didn't need to cut the approximately inch long legs to get them to fit. A small amount of jiggling them about to get them positioned nicely and we're good to go.

The entire assembly (and a dog hair)

So throw some cotton into it and juice it up. Since this one was clearly going to need a lot of watts I dug out some Crisp Fuji from Apollo in the US. It's rather nice, a nice sharp apple flavour and 0mg.

And here it is on a 3D printed custom DNA200 mod. That's the amount of air I'm using at 50W.

Better flavour than the Herakles or Anzu but definitely DTL only in practice. With a much higher resistance build you could shut down the airflow enough for MTL I reckon. The flavour would make it worth trying.

I like this one...

RE: What did you get today?
Wide open, there's still flavour at 70W. And 85W, it's still a cool vape at that level though I was getting a bit of spitting.

It spits too much for me at 100W though it is only warming up a little at that point. I may have over juiced it a bit. There is still flavour at that point.

A lot of atties and juices can't handle a lot of watts.

The crisp Fuji juice also goes nicely with the rather hot Chennai (Madras) style mushroom curry I had for lunch.

TW I think this one would suit you well.
