Morpheus Style Mechanical Mod Clone $26.32

This clone has taken quite a long time to come around. I almost get the feeling that now there are more clones available now than original mods. That discussion is for another day, let’s look at this beautiful Morpheus clone. The styling very much alike the classic Caravela mod. Everyone likes the looks of the Caravela, but this mod has some really nice details that really make this mod stand out.

Solid tubes are always my preference

With this mod you get three thick and beautiful solid tubes to accommodate your 18mm batteries. I have read that the tubes on this mod are particularly thick and will probably shave off any stickers there are on your batteries. The simplicity of this mod is very alluring. There are no intricate moldings, no grooves, and no magnets. This is a clear and simple device and with practice it should perform very well.

The button says "Vaping Innovation," a bit ironic for a clone

Let me address the elephant in the room. There are some complaints about the design of this mod. The extra tight battery fit and the button venting holes are a bit wonky. The battery ventilation’s purpose is to release the pressure created in a catastrophic battery failure. When a battery fails it discharges either gas or liquid depending on the composition, and that stuff needs somewhere to go. Without an exit, and with enough pressure the mod can potentially become a pressure cooker. The great Steammonkey recently reported his tests with sealing up mods and causing battery failures and claims that IMR batteries will not cause an explosion, although they will heat up considerably. Better safe than sorry though. I have read that the venting issue with this mod can be remedied with a little doctoring of the insulators in the switch. I have ordered many mods before that required a little tinkering to optimize performance so I wouldn’t toss this one aside just yet.

To me the logo looks like a racing helmet.

At 22mm thick this mod falls right into the standard size and should look excellent with a Kayfun or any other 22mm atomizer. The contact pins are copper which is one of the preferred materials. There are ample insulators in both the top cap and the switch to help prevent shorts. The locking ring is reverse threaded so there is no worry of taking the switch off when trying to lock the mod. Overall I would say this is a very nice and attractive mod, and would be great for an intermediate level vaper.

Here is what Fasttech is saying about it (not much):

  • Tube style mod
  • 510 threading connection
  • Copper contact pins
  • Adjustable positive contact pin
  • Spring-loaded bottom firing button, w/ reverse threaded locking ring
  • Each tube is engraved with the logo and serial number
  • Houses single 18350/18500/18650 battery

    @Josh: my thoughts exactly. I’ve been doing quick check-ins pretty much daily since July, but nada. Hope all is well and that you may just simply be busy. Or maybe you’ve moved on to other things?

    Best

      Sorry for the absence guys. I’ve had a few personal issues recently, along with an influx of work lately. The busy season around here tapers down at labor day and I plan to resume writing on the site by then. I appreciate your concerns and interest, and hope I don’t lose all of my following during my recent break. I haven’t given up and plan to resume as soon as things settle in my personal life.

      Thanks for reading!
      Sincerely,
      Dave
