Gbox mod - now it's actually quite decent

Woah! Rare earth no less. Bravo. So where do I buy the vice grips to get the facure back off?

Specialty stores will always charge ya more and don’t like that they dont state what grade (strength) they are. Jmak mentions other sources in Geekvape Gbox Silicon Conversion

This is strictly my opinion, but if I was in the market for a regulated 2 battery squonker then the Rage would be my choice.

A few things to note, I am not a fan of GeekVape products and have never used the Gbox. Also, I’ve seen people say that the Rage is made by Smok. I am not 100% sold on that unless Desire Designs, the maker of X Mini, is a sibling company to Smok, or uses Smok chip sets.

The price point may be a factor too. The Rage goes for about $94. But I got mine for $50 thanks to @Lostmarbles. They do run specials some times.

As for my use of the Rage, it goes with me every where.

Very nicely modded. I’m still on my original Gbox bottle, and it hasn’t given me any troubles yet, but time will tell. I do like the magnets however, as that just makes things stupid easy.

Yeah. I’ve seen people post about BuyBest and haven’t seen any negative feedback.

Of course Gearbest is a vendor here too, but I won’t ever order from them

I’ve bought from Buybest and it wasn’t a bad experience. It did take a while to get the item though - about two weeks. At 44.95 for a Rage, I would jump on that and wait the wait.

recoilrda.com is sold out of the Rage, but it’s interesting that they still have the LABORDAY discount code still active. Fingers crossed that it’s still good when they get the 6th batch in stock.

Na I am pretty sure it is not made by smok but it uses the same chip set as many smok products - nuvoton

I posted that link as an example. I totally can’t remember where I got my magnets since I bought them years ago. But you are correct about specialty stores (especially if they have anything to do with miniatures)

that is a great deal, I paid 99.00 for mine, but that was brushed SS, and would do so again. I’m getting confused with bestbuy and buybest, either way, I had my stomach pumped out because of one of them.
So very happy with the Rage, and it is a tough lil bugger. I have fell asleep on the commode and dropped the Rage a few times. Still working !!
I would buy the VAPING BIKER squonk (luv that guy, him and TODD did a gig yesterday) but , going to wait for the TOPSIDE this sept-oct. or maybe Xmas Sale.

@adary you did a great job on the conversion!!

@SmilingOgre, me to man, waiting for 2 batt. DNA250C squonker !!

There is still work to be done. In the end there will be no trace of the screw holes :slight_smile:

I’ve got the Therion 75C BF and outside of the dismal battery life it is a wonderful device. It’s my “dessert” mod. I put a Aladdin on it and vape a dessert after dinner. A 250C would be outstanding.

I’m lobbying Vaporesso to make a dual battery squonker. Their chip is decent with TC as well

Primer (2 coats after taking a few blemishes out in the first coat)

And paint :slight_smile:

The color I went with is Arctic blue - dark metallic blue that was used on certain WWII airplanes.
