Finally got my Skyfall clone. I got the one @benjy337 shared in post#2.
Ok, this is not a review. If it were I think I would reference a couple of YTers reviews. That said, here’s my impressions after 24 hours.
Build# 1 - single strand round wire, SS, 24ga that was 7.5 wraps and 3.5mm ID. This build simply begged for more air flow. I didn’t remove the air flow inserts in order to have a wide open air situation, because I don’t like that zero restriction such large holes would provide. Too hot at the power I found good for vapor production.
Build# 2 - Juggernaut NI80, 4.5 wraps and 3.5mm ID. Build came in at 0.29 ohms. At 60 watts, a decent little cloud and plenty of flavor. But a tad hot for a chain vaper so I’m backed down to 50. Still rather warm but vapor volume is fairly acceptable.
I will be trying other builds to see if I can fall in love with this thing, but at this moment I can’t say I love it. Like, a lot, but not enough to say this topper is staying on my Topside single battery mod.
Pros - super easy to build. I mean I think I could put a coil in this thing blindfolded. Flavor is very nice. Airflow options perhaps are really good for someone who likes to tinker with airy to MTL but I just like airy. Just not zero restriction airy. Machining is excellent on this. One of the things common among reviewers of the $200 original is superb machining. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a super close clone…all of it is well crafted.
Cons - too damn small. I know this could have been made as a 24, 25 or 26mm atty. Would have benefited from the extra size IMO. And that dang 510 drip tip! Why? I hate it. So along with a search for the best build will be a search for a better drip tip. I’ve tried all the ones I have in my little spares drawer and nothing blows my skirt up.
More to come if I can fix my issues with this thing.
