270 and counting... False alarm
270 days of daily use and abuse... It was a good run...



Notice the area around the red wire... The board still completely works except no power out...

Cost to use about 9 cents a day...

Edit: Okay last night it stopped firing or so I thought... It may have just reset to 1 watt... This morning I cleaned the board (scraped off the flux) and found the traces in perfect condition... I wired it up and poof firing... No repair required so back to counting working days... Ordered another in the meanwhile... Felt naked with out a working pico around...

LOL... I was just pondering on that exact item... I'm going to buy another (more) Pico's as well... Then again it is Christmas was considering all mods... Any good gift ideas?

Assuming you might be using more than one mod, is it at least a mod you used heavily for that time?
Just a quick guess as to whether your main vaping habit worked out to $0.09 per day, etc

cant beat that cost if so

Same mod you *lost* once and found again later?

Lost it just for a few hours... Used it heavy every day... Own others but, all the juice has gone through the Pico... Purposely done so for this longevity test... 9 cents and day is as of today so the cost continues to spiral downward as long as it is working ;)

A macro of the paint these days...


Which in reality doesn't look so bad considering all the abuse...

You should treat your resurrected Pico to a wrap.
These are made from old hymn book covers (no, they are not) ;-)
Mine looked as scratched as yours.

Picked up a pair of tanks short and tall 4.99 each... by far my favorite tank these days... KF are on standby should I need to revert back to mechs...
