I tell ya, sometimes it is right time, right place but that is how I got so lucky to wind up with the Iguana 20700 mech squonk kit from Ehpro. Last day of the ECC show in Ontario, CA and I was walking around with my bud Deuces Jack who luckily for the both of …
I have a theory…..(oh fuck this should be interesting) … and that theory is this, basically there are two types of people in the world, those that like to be in total control of everything……and those that don’t really give a shit….OK it’s a weak ass vague theory…but bare with…at some point during this review that might just make some sense….to two…maybe three of you, because this theory would appear to be ever present in this vaping universe of ours…..and I’ll explain why…
Now….temperature control……I know for a fact that just saying those very words gets a whole swathe of vapers in a crazy almost hysterical tizz….’how accurate is it’….. ‘can I change the TCR values to match exactly what wire I have’ ….’this feels approximately 0.7 degrees lower than what I was led to believe it would be’ ….’hmm..this porridge is juuuust right’ …these would be the people that like to be in total control, they like things to be the same….every time, because difference is an imperfection and imperfections are not tolerated…not on this side of the fence …..and I can dig it, there’s no judging going on here (pfft) people like what they like, and once they have found that ‘like’…. they don’t need anything else …and that… is the way it must always be….if they can control an exact set of parameters over and over again to obtain that…it just makes things….logical…
And then there’s the ‘other’ type……the type that hates anything uniform, they do something more than three times and all of a sudden they feel they’re in a dreaded…..’routine’….they don’t particularly care for controlling anything….in most cases…..even themselves….in fact they’d be quite happy to just sit back and let someone else do all the controlling…. they can’t be arsed with anything as complicated as ‘settings’ …..who needs that shit…. variable wattage is about as far as these people go with vaping…yet even that…is still a little too ‘controlly’ at times…..the less they have to worry about…the more simple …..life would appear to be…
If you happen to belong to camp ‘controlly’ …you may as well just stop reading right now because today’s offering comes bereft of anything so controlling as ‘inputting settings’ …. menus are a distant memory and even if they were present…there is no screen to view them on…sure…these people do cross over to the mech world, but they will measure precisely what wire they’re using and triple check their figures on Steam engine to obtain a precise and accurate ohms reading…..whereas the other type…will just have a ‘Goldilocks Zone’ ….they know what’s too high or too low and as long as the coils fall somewhere in that zone….they’re quite happy to let the chips fall where they may..
‘Simple’ is the word du jour and this….surprisingly (pfft…again) this is very much the category that I fall into…..I know right?….shocker…..
I was a bit gun shy doing this as I have seen reviewers shunned for even mentioning a clone but hey fuck it lets have a look anyhow.
I purchased both of these mods but that will not have any effect on my opinion.
So to truly compare 2 things all the variables have to be exactly the same this is how I have set up.
2 Aromamizer plus with 20ml extension tanks
Identical dual coils in each .32 ohms** (single 316l 26 wrapped in ss316l 40 3.5mm id 7 wraps)
Same juice Diy Strawberry Cream Pie
4 x new vtc5a batteries in each mod.
All coils were wicked with the same strip of rayon.
1x Authentic 4 Horsemen Hammer of God v3.1
1x Clone Hammer of God v3.1
** The manufacturer recommends no lower than .4 ohm coils but they also say you should not leave it unattended or use it in any sexual nature so meh. That said please know you batteries and Ohms Law and build safely.
When it comes to design..in my experience the kind of people that shine are few and far between, being creative….I mean truly …TRULY…. genuinely born naturally creative…Is as rare as rocking horse shit and those that are….are more often that not borderline completely fucking woop woop.
You’ll be wise to keep this in mind when you see what it is I am about to show you in a few moments…
You see, one day, not too long ago…..one of these mentalists who had somehow found his way into the vape industry….sat there with his laptop and had the biggest brain fart of his career right then and there…….
‘What if?’ …….the beginnings of many amazing awe inspiring creations…and yet….more often than not….the starting point of uncountable unimaginable clusterfucks…..
Mad props….I believe…..should be presented to either in absolute abundance….that being said….this designer…….this…..person…..well, I honestly think this person just showed their idea to the wrong guy at work…
And so it began…..
