Ordered one of three left of this “limited edition” master pack. Excited! I love my Mutation XL’s and glad to add it to the collection of 28mm atty’s including the Kennedy. You can find it here.
Starting a new sub category today for photos of the day’s vape (not in my hand :-))

Psyclone Citadel RDA atop the LostVape Therion BF 75C
About a week ago, I recently woke up to find my dot.squonk button frozen and a bit of eLiquid splattered around the mod. Luckily, it was not a battery venting issue. However, the mod was not usable anymore. I took it apart and found the peek insulator was melted and the cable to the positive battery pin was blackened/roasted. I immediately emailed dot.mod and they responded quickly. I was asked how I maintained the center pin and I explained truthfully, not often, I was told that I should have been doing regular cleaning of the center pin. I did remove the pin and found the pin was also blackened from overheating but still cleanable. They explained that it was a known issue with some folks and they have re-engineered the button assembly. I was sent the RMA and just got the mod back today all working and good to go. Great customer service that will keep me buying their products.
DPRO rda by CoilART with Advancedvapesupply.com fused Clapton wire. Great flavor and love the Ultem cap version. Excellent for squonking. They also make a mini model. Get them here.
Pulse BF with 22mm Dot.Mod Petri RDA and Dot.Mod Drip Tip
As a preface to the video, the Petri is one of the best all around rda’s ever produced IMHO. Its well made, engineered for flavor and originally had no AFC which means they carefully thought out size and positioning if the air holes and tightness of draw of a single hole on each side of the cap. The press fit drip tip is still the best tip to use with this rda for draw and flavor. I have tried other drip tips but none compare to the stock drip tip the way its designed. The cloud cap came along afterwards only by demand of people interested in cloud blowing and competitive cloud blowing events at the time vs. flavor. As time passed, the demand for 24mm rda’s came about and so DotMod came out with a conversion cap for that purpose that includes AFC as well.
Before the $5 Squonk Kit came out recently, I thought there was really no need for the small hex tool that came with the rda and hence I never used it and never could figure out why it was included because it did not fit anything visible on/in the RDA. After I watched the French video on how to replace the French conversion kit a light bulb went on, even though the guy did not even use the included allen key. I did not remember that the rda did come with a tool until after making the video. I dug in my archive of empty boxes of vape hardware to find the tool, tore down my build to try it and NO it does not fit the hex screw that holds down the negative post, it’s too small. I just don’t know why they included the tool when it does not fit. Anyway, you will have to find your own H1.3 hex bit driver or allen wrench to remove the negative post screw as stated in the video.

The first order of bottles has arrived along with a bottle filler from Drip Factory Labs. These bottles are nice but a bit small for my Therion. I am going to use them anyway. They are working great for now. Charles Rowe from Vape Smugglers sold me a few SJMY bottles and have one in the Halcyon. It’s a whole new experience now. I was used to the standard cheap Asian bottles that have come with my mods, but these are much better. I never thought that bottle softness would be a major contention point with squonking, but it is. Also, the diameter of the inner tube makes a big difference as far as liquid flow. I now see the the light.
