The last paragraph really makes sense to me based on my current experience.
    That is really good to news to hear Vaporologist! Anything I can do to lessen the fiddling, cleaning and increase the ease of use is a big win for the user! Less fiddling and cleaning=More Vaping!

    Oh, I know, D... I think you will love them!

    Btw, I know you love shiny but for what it's worth, P+650 is supposed to come out today. I wouldn't be surprised if you totally fell in love with the new finish and actually decided that you prefer it once you held it in your hands.

    David, why rhodium?
    I mean, what precipitated this innovation? Were you just sitting around one day and suddenly exclaim "Rhodium!" and head out to find a rhodium-plater? What was the process?

    The contacts on mechanical mods have always been the achilles heel, so i started looking into suitable platings. Gold is an excellent conductor, but with our exposed contacts, it wouldnt' last as long. Silver tarnishes like crazy, nickely plating isn't too bad, but it's susceptible to electrical arching and the subsequent oxidization once it's been heated (like in a short). Rhodium just ended up being the best possible solution so we went that route.
