Do you own them both? Its identical except the board is in a few mm more shallow in the front. Don't go by photos here, they are always bad for some reason. Go to the reviews photos from people if they have any.


I have the Mini-C kit from here and a KBox Platinum (not from a Subox kit) I got from somewhere else, I forget where. The finish on the KBox definitely looks better in my eyes, more like proper brushed steel compared to the shinier, wet looking Mini-C mod.

Edit: Just realised we're probably talking about different things. Mine is the stand-alone KBox Platinum 60W with the metal buttons, which looks very similar to the old Topbox kit mod (75W).

Ya I have that 60W Kbox Mini SS 'Platinum' mod too, it's gorgeous.






Buttons are milled. I can't recall if the buttons are steel as well or aluminum, but they for sure ain't plastic. You are thinking of the Kbox 40W probably, the black w/ red buttons, etc.





Just checked for teh LOLZ, a magnet sticks to the buttons on this one.

Does the Subox Mini-C have TC modes or it is just VW?

It's a nice price here, just curious on if it's the same board as the Kbox Mini 60W Platinum mod.
I know the one I have doesn't do SS-TC, just Ni200 and Ti, but otherwise it's about perfect.

The cheap old 40W Kbox is on clearance at a few places now, the Platinum, not so much.

Yeah, looks the same as mine. Thought they were plated plastic, don't feel like a solid button like a snow wolf but that could just be the way it clicks. See a pic of the inside of the battery door? The 1st photo shows the difference in color best that I was talking about, tank is like grey and the mod is silver. The RDA it kinda shows up, NarDa looks to match. The last photo with the glare best represents the chrome plated look... could be clear coated I guess. Can't do your make up in it or nothing though... not a mirror finish. You can see with the last two photos how much difference a photo can make. Looks like two different mods, if I didn't know they were the same I'd think one is fake based on the photos.

I got it for $15 - a 12% discount + postage elsewhere, but they don't have the silver anymore. All up it was $19.88.

Different lighting and exposure modes make a difference in appearance, also how I edited in Lightroom. I can change every aspect of an image if I wanna.

First pic has a original SS Serpent RTA on it though.

It's supposed to be SS304 FAIK, while I think the atties are of something else, probably SS316?

You want mirror finish, take the glaze coating off of a "silver" Aspire NX-75-Z...that's blinding underneath the coating....aiee!

Too late, I went with black instead, hehe.

I am going to do a SMPL in mirror finish, but I want drill some holes in it first.
