The Cats RDA Clone $13.01

Here is a new clone of a very popular RDA that has been a big hit with the multi coilers out there. You don’t have to like cats to like this atomizer. This atomizer features a unique design that encloses the posts within an inner chamber. The air flow runs from the intakes located near the top of the atomimzer into the midsection. This is where it gets interesting. The air is then distributed into 4 opposing holes which should evenly distribute across a nice quad coil. This atomizer also features a conical chimney that has been a growing trend. The shape is supposed to increase flavor by condensing the vapor.

Quite a line up, that's a ton of o-rings for a dripper

Quite a line up, that’s a ton of o-rings for a dripper

From what I’ve been reading this atomizer provides a very unique feeling vape that is one of a kind. The deck is designed for vertical quad coils and has a very fancy positive post. I imagine coil wrapping is very easy with the nicely knurled grip and fat flat head screws. The drip tip gets a lot of attention on this RDA as well. Usually the insulator holds a stainless steel drip tip. This RDA has it the other way around with a very wide barrel Polyoxymethylene (POM) drip tip threaded into the steel base. Drip tip insulators are always a good idea when sub ohming or vaping quad coils. All the added heat will very quickly make a drip tip a bit hot to handle.

Here is what the site is saying about it:

  • Removable 510 stainless steel + POM drip tip (the stainless steel part and POM part are thread-connected)
  • Air flow control ring (4 vent holes on the AFC ring)
  • Stainless steel center post
  • Brass 510 contact pin
  • 510 threading connection
  • Laser etched logo
  • Height without drip tip: 39.5mm

Price Drop, The Nemi Clone $30, on Short Preorder

I’ll keep this short and sweet rather than repeating myself about this mod. The Nemi Clone, or as it is also called The Mini Nemesis Clone is starting to pop up at online vendors now. This is the lowest price I’ve seen on this sleek 14500 mod, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up having the same prices as the Nemesis clone once these are in stock. Here we have 3 variations of the mod available; brushed stainless steel mixed, polished stainless steel mixed, and copper with steel accents. The copper version costs $3 more than the steel versions at $33. The details are still unconfirmed, but I would assume this has a spring loaded switch, and no extension tubes, much like the models I’ve spotted elsewhere.

Back again with a lower price and a new finish.

Back again with a lower price and a new finish.

Any user that plans on topping this with a rebuildable atomizer should proceed with caution. The 14500 model battery that these “mini” mods use are not rated for as high of a discharge rate as an 18650 or even a 18350. Get familiar with ohms law and make sure to keep your coils at a appropriate wattage for a 14500 battery. Based on the recent popularity of the Kayfun 2.1 clone release I am sure these will be a big hit and will provide a nice alternative to the heavy 26650 mods that have been popping up everywhere.

These are expected to ship around 6-5-14 making this a rather short wait for a preorder.

Presenting The Mutant 26650 Clone Mod $49.99

This does not have any indication of being a preorder, this mod already looks ready to ship. The Mutant by Fall Out Mods has been cloned and it looks to be a 1:1 replica of the original. This is a very solid looking 26650 mod that offers some nice variety into the market. Soon not everyone will have to have a Stingray, Hades or Big Nasty clone in order to have an inexpensive 26650 mod. The Mutant mod has a nice look to it and all the features that one could want to find in a mod.

A great looking 26650 mixed combo

This mod has all the features I look for in a mechanical mod. There is a magnetic switch which is self contained. The button for the switch is nicely recessed into the brass housing. This is important especially with a 26650 mod. The added weight of the bigger mod will not be able to fire the atomizer when it is stood upright. When you don’t want to worry about having your mods rolling around your desk it is nice to be able to stand it upright without any risk. The laser engraving in the button should nicely preserve as well since it shouldn’t contact any surfaces.

I'm digging the style, but a locking switch might not be necessary here.

This mod measures in at 30mm which is a little thicker than some other 26650 mods. Most 26650 mods to date are 28.5mm in diameter, so some atomizers might look a little small on top of this guy. The pins are solid brass, and the 510 is adjustable. There is a nice insulator for the 510 pin. There is some controversy over battery venting in this clone. The original mod vented through the button, but I am hearing from some people that they may have been omitted in the clone.  I think this is a great looking 26650 mod, and it really helps expand the current selection.

Hana Modz DNA 30 Mini Clone $56

Here is another Hana DNA 30 clone out of china. Good thing this is listed overseas, because Hana has been striking back against the U.S. shops with lawsuits. This is the mini version of the Hana box mod and I’d assume we are going to see more varieties very soon. To date Fasttech has only carried the DNA 20, but for only a few bucks more you can now get the DNA 30 version. This clone has had a lot of buzz surrounding it lately and so far I’ve only heard good things about all the versions.

If you have a DNA 30 any pictures have to be taken at 30 watts.

It isn’t easy being green. Maybe soon we’ll have Kayfuns and RDA’s in all colors. This mod features dual 600mah battery packs built in. There is a common mirco USB charging port for charging. I still can’t get over the fact the Evolv DNA 30 board and charger alone will cost you more than this complete mod. The DNA 30 boards used in these mods boast the same specs as the original. The early adopters have been reporting the performance is indistinguishable from the genuine Hana. The dimensions line up with the original with a small amount of variance, maybe this one is a hair bigger, but it lists as just a few millimeters bigger than the original.

Those buttons make me want to click them

The Hana Modz are the premiere variable wattage box mods available. They have all the options you could wish for. The designs are as compact as they can be. These clones might become my new “go to” recommendation for new vapers. Even sub ohmers will be mildly pleased with these mods which have the ability to fire down to .05 ohms, which is right around my ideal vape. I would still be careful testing the limits of the batteries in these mods, just because the chip allows 30 watts, doesn’t mean the battery is equipped to handle it. I love the recessed 510 connector, this allows for even the most difficult of atomizers to lie nice and flush below the top of the mod. This is sure to be another hit, and I’m looking forward to what varieties we will see in the near future.

The Magma RDA Clone $15.79

Here’s a nice price cut on a highly anticipated RDA. The clones of the Magma have been rolling out and they are a replica of one of the most popular RDAs in the vaping community. There are lots of reasons to like the Magma RDA, and it is built to appease the most finicky cloud chasers out there. The original has been in short supply and has endlessly been out of stock at many vaping sites. Now anyone can get their hands on this RDA for a fraction of the original’s price. Here is another example of the cloners stepping up where opportunity knocks.

There's something in the well!

There’s something in the well!

There is a lot going on in this little RDA. The Magma has a particularly deep well and it claims to hold up to 40 drop of e-liquid. Anyone who has ever tried DIY e-liquid hates the word drops. Different flavors and different mixtures have different surface tensions, so a drop is a mere approximation of measurement. Deep inside the well there is an insulator nice and safely tucked away, hidden from the scolding coils. The posts are especially tall to keep the coils away from the insulators and over the air flow channels. The posts are even welded to the base of the atomizer to prevent shifting around or questionable connections. Where the Origen V1 RDA made separate juice wells, the Magma joined them together so there is no worry of running dry on one end.

Not the smallest RDA, but they really pack the features into this guy

Not the smallest RDA, but they really pack the features into this guy

This RDA screams durable. They looked at the standard top cap designs and decided to put an AFC ring rather than drilling right through the top cap. The AFC ring on this mod resembles swiss cheese with its 9 air holes. My favorite part about this RDA is the lack of o-rings. Now o-rings definitely get the job done when you gotta make a seal, I’d just rather not need them at all. I have broken countless o-rings, and having a leaky atomizer can ruin your day. The posts in the atomizer are drilled out nice and wide, and instead of needing an Allen key, they use a flat head design, so no special tools required. All parts considered this looks like a sure winner, and for $16 the amount of craftsmanship involved here definitely makes this a bargain.

I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've seen the Paradigm logo.

I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve seen the Paradigm logo, somehow it dodges photos.

Here is what the site says about it:

  • Stainless steel construction
  • 22mm in diameter
  • Two 3.97mm wide poles (screw type – shoot and screw) easier to rebuild and better conductivity
  • New technology – dual DIRECT TO COIL air-hole for maximized flavor and vapor
  • 9 air holes on the outer casing
  • Extended juice basin – can hold up to 40 drops of juice with minimal change of leakage (for a dripper)
  • Poles are welded to the base for durability
  • Positive insulator hidden in the base to avoid melting
  • O-ring less – to make it maintenance free
  • Dome chamber top cap for better flavor

The AGA-T7 By Youde! Now Available $31.50 New Low Price $28.00(Edited)

These guys at Eciggity are on a roll. I don’t want to sound like I am affiliated, but they are quickly climbing to be one of the premiere U.S. vape shops giving the people what they want. Usually when a new product arrives there is a potato quality blown up thumbnail image to support it, not these guys. They give us the info and that’s what matters in online shopping. A manufacturer that I’ve somewhat ignored has changed their Genesis atomizer ways and have conformed to the Kayfun hype. Here we have an original design from a manufacturer known for their drippers. There is a lot of things right with this atomizer, but some choices leave me very excited to see the next rendition.

Two positives and two negative... posts.

Two positives and two negative… posts.

Here we have a very interesting design. There are posts with staggered heights and an air flow channel coming from the center. I can imagine some cross design coils being used in this design. There is a twist on the Kayfun design as well. The juice channels flow upwards, typically they are bottom fed. I wonder how to properly wick this, can I just use the deck like a dripper? I know the brass haters will not like the fact the center air channel is brass. There is an ongoing concern of letting heat and juice make contact with brass parts due to the potential of lead poisoning. My second concern with this atomizer is the insulators. They look a bit close to where the coils will lie, and that gives them a tendency to melt.

A big atomizer for big flavor! Right?

A big atomizer for big flavor! Right?

Now lets put the size of this atomizer into consideration. The listed size is 62.5mm, to put that in perspective an 18650 battery by definition is 65mm. This thing is tall. I imagine there might be a more compact way to have all the features, but maybe there is a purpose behind that elongating middle section. Lots of atomizers use a threaded tank to cut back on parts, but this one features a pyrex glass tank. I like the decision of placing the fill hole in the top of the atomizer. Whenever I flip my atomizers to bottom fill the juice in the chamber will flow out the drip tip. By keeping the mod right side up this will become a non issue and save me some paper towels. There is a very wide AFC on this mod, which will make many vapers happy.

I've read the capacity is 3.5ml, but the manufacturer says 1.5ml. Let's hope it's 3.5.
