Delivered today. I'm anxious to get home and check it out.
I will take some pics and give my humble feedback as soon as I can.
Mine is out for delivery today as well.
Should have it in hand after 5pm
My tracking still says HK......but so did my buddies and he got vapemail Saturday. Hope my new Astro is waiting for me!
Nevermind....wife called and said I had vape mail! Super sweet reviews on the Astro and Steam boy clone coming up this weekend!
Just unwrapped the astro a few minutes ago.
At first glance, I love this thing!
Locking ring is NOT reverse threaded.
Pin is adjustable via flat blade screwdriver.
Switch contact can be tightened via flat blade as well.
Threads feel decent.
This thing is TINY!
Pic is in 18650 mode.
Welp..... Off to the shop!
It's not horrible, but it is every bit a $24 mod LOL
How is the air flow "ridges" on the top cap? Is it actually engraved? I use drippers with the hole on the side, not the 510 post, but I'm still curious.
How is the quality of the logo? Can we remove it?
Top cap is etched not engraved so no airflow, and the logo looks like it could be removed with a good brushed finish. Considering this myself since I'm not a fan of fingerprints and such. I forgot how slippery polished tubes are too lol.
Working on a shorter throw and less wobble in the switch ATM.
The slotted positive pin intrigues me also since mine seems to float, not thread.
Fixed the throw to about 1/2 mm, the spacer I made for that took care of the wobble. Locking ring only takes about 2/3 of a turn to lock.
It's pretty tiny in 350 mode- too small for my hand- but in 500 it is perfect. On a 1.4 ohm coil I'm getting 0.3 V drop. Not bad at all for stock everything.
Shown for reference:
Sigelei "ba gua" with chimbus in 350
Astro clone with AGI in 500
Sigelei 19 with AGI in 500
*Apologies for crappy lighting.
