If you use lower wattage ie MTL get the 30w bantam box. It's only $28 ish. more compact and with the additional safety of a chipset. I have had one quite a while and a Billet box. But always go back to using an RTA and mod. I also think Boro's and all the rba's are a Rabbit hole for cash especially when authentic rba's are priced much higher than a decent DNA chipped mod plus an RTA.

See here for the Bantam. https://www.fasttech.com/search?bantam%20box

That's very true! ^^
But I had got the chance to buy some authentic RBAs lately at very good prices (the real rabbit hole!!!)
and care much less for DNA chip.

The Bantam is a great little mod, I agree, but Eternal wouldn't be happy with one imho ;)

Just wondering who would be the beta testers for these ones. Those who would even come back with some feedbacks.

I don't like the look at that switch mechanism. I invisage arcing and bad connectivity after a short time using it.

"The Bantam is a great little mod, I agree, but Eternal wouldn't be happy with one imho ;)"

You are not wrong, they are very cute though. If my body wasn't so unhappy with salt nic it would be doable.

I am more and more on the fence the last couple days about going any more down the BB rabbit hole than just the pulse AIO. I feel like I need to give it more of a shot and get a big airflow Boro that will take a big coil, and try that most of the time, but lately I just feel like why? Maybe I should just stick with what I like and stop trying.

Has anyone ever tried using, electric grease, or dielectric grease for arching issues on mods?

What Does Dielectric Grease Do? Dielectric grease ensures longevity of your connection points and creates a proper seal. Dielectric grease helps create extra insulation for electrical connectors, prevents arcing and is ideal for any electrical connections with rubber gaskets.

I remember people using electric geese on mech tubes, on the threaded parts. When several tubes were theading together. But not sure they used it on the contact points...

Had a closer look at this mech on the other site, the plate is not bent in the best way and the throw seems to be far too short. There's several ways bend the plate, this is a good one (now I can brag! :P ) =)



V.s this one (actually they did the exact opposite):




Side note: that's why these boxes should be cheap. You buy them for the casing, throw away the rest > replace them. Well, most of times. Or they should at least get it right...

Just seeing it now, the battery is right beside the tank, I don't like that...That's how they managed to gain some mm with the larger. It wasn't worth it...
Well you'd better keep a non seeping/leaking tank inside! =)
