Hi everyone, this may be old news to some, but I just found out about two of these and thought I would share with anyone interested…
So, I’ve been going through my collection of vape gear (because whatelse am I going to do while at home?) and I came across some tanks that haven’t been used in a while because I really hate buying coil heads. Two of those tanks are the Cerebus and the Aero both by Geekvape. I loved both of those tanks and the only reason I had them was because they came with the mods as a kit.
I did a Google search to see if RBAs where available for either one and nope, not a thing. What I did find however, was the ability to use other manufacturer RBA decks with a little modification. I wanted to share this with everyone in case you have some of these laying around and want a different use of them.
For the Aero you’ll need a Smok V8 baby RBA, but the glass will be too short so you will also need a glass from an OBS Crius 2 dual. I just happened to have a Crius 2 in my junk drawer that doesn’t work (I think the insulator on the deck is cracked or other reason it’s showing up as a short). Glad I didn’t throw it away. All parts fit perfectly and my Aero is back to giving me some nice flavor and clouds again.
For the Cerebus, again you’ll need a V8 baby RBA and if you want a straight glass tube, you can use one from a Geekvape Illusion mini (Which I also had in the junk drawer). From what I can see the deck threading may be a little short (just a hair) but it should work. Unfortunately I only have the one RBA and it’s in the Aero now so I will have to test for fitting and leakage later. If you prefer the bubble glass to a straight tube, the Augvape Intake bubble glass is the recommended replacement. I have a pair on order from Fasttech as we speak.
The Augvape bubble glass from Fasttech is $2.00 for a pair.
The Smok V8 Baby RBA came out to about $9.00 from Eciggity (The RBA is a bit hard to find in stock at the moment. I believe is disco).
I didn’t really look too hard for the Illusion mini or Crius 2 glass tube, but it looks like they are available from various Chinese vendors.
Anyhoo, if you have these parts laying around or just want to stop buying coil heads for those mentioned, give it a try and see what you think. The Smok RBA heads are actually not bad.
