    Default Vaperfexion Fission 22mm RDA - USA Made/Under $50!

    It's just about here!.....Use any Vaperfexion 22mm Tank Model as an RBA Tank. Best of all, it uses your current regular size tube and it won't break the bank.

    EDIT: The Fission has taken many paths over the last two years as these earlier posts show, to reach it's final destination. The destination is unchartered territory. A custom built, high quality, 100% Made in America, Rebuildable Drip Atomizer (RDA). The most amazing part? It costs a mere $49. How? We at Vaperfexion decided to eliminate middle man pricing. We normally have to have a "wholesale pricing tier" for our brick and mortars and online resellers. We are not offering this to them, since we simply can't afford to. Unless the stores want to buy them at $49. You, the customer are getting the wholesale pricing tier on this product. That is not a "line", but a fact. It is in some ways, an experiment on our part. Since we make everything 100% in house, we can take that chance and see if it works out. Every other modder and designer has to consign their work to a machine shop or shops and then pay a large sum to the shop and then they typically double that amount and sell the lot to retailers who double it again, as a minimum and then sell it to you. We are taking the first step in trying to bring down the outrageous prices that have crept into vaping hardware. Sure some of it is justified, as machining is an extremely expensive process. But I have also witnessed that double over double pricing structure first hand and I think it is a ripoff for vaping consumers. I have brought down the prices of all of our other products by 20% as I can also. So this is my meager attempt to bring some clout to the vaping consumer and stop the systematic gouging that I see.

    The VEXGEN 22mm RBA Beta Insert in it's current and pretty much final form. Excuse the dings, this is a very used VEXGEN!
    20140223_193514.jpg

    Shown inside a standard 22mm Cartomator VX with standard Fused Quartz Regular Size tube. The only remaining work needing to be completed is the drip-tip adapter, which tended to be a PIA during the beta test. Remember that most of our tank models rely on the carto to hold the drip-tip. With no carto in the top-cap, a flange insert is needed for the top-cap to hold the drip-tip. We are reconfiguring that piece and that should pretty much be the ballgame. My guess is that it will now release sometime between March 14th and 21st.
    So the VEXGEN will include the RBA body, the Stainless Spacer/Air Ring and the Drip-tip Flange. It will fit all Vaperfexion 22mm tanks and should come in around $75. There will be some different materials and designs available for the Air Ring, but the base model will be plain T316 Stainless like in the picture. There will also be a Limited Edition Titanium Model, which will include a Cartomator VXti 22mm Tank and a Titanium VEXGEN and Air Ring. That should be in mid to late April.

    Over the next 2 weeks I'll be opening it up and letting everyone see the insides. But for now, this is it!

    Well we have gotten side tracked with our final phase of moving into our new shop and setting up new machinery. It hasn't left much time to finish up the VEXGEN and some other new projects. But we are now moving forward again. Should be making the first production run this month.

    We have finally started machining the first run of Vexgen 22mm rebuildable inserts. They will fit any 22mm regular size Vaperfexion tank without any modification. It is a 3 post design for dual-coil capability to answer a question that I keep getting. We should have all the parts machined in the next week or so. At that point, I'll show some pics and we'll decide on a release date.

    While we will offer a basic Stainless tube for the inserts (fits above the tank's quartz tube around the coil chamber) with a single 1.2-1.6mm hole option to keep the base cost down. We are also making an adjustable air version with an outer air-ring for slightly more money. I literally have been slayed with emails about how air flow will be handled on these inserts!

    We are considering not releasing the RBA insert and just staying with the RDA insert. Since there just doesn't seem to be much interest in Genesis style RBA's. The RDA should be a pretty good and economical little unit though. I am waiting for final hardware for it and we should have them out by next weekend if everything shows up on time.

    At long last, The Fission RDA Insert is finally ready to see the light of day! It will ship with a Cartomator ONE 25.5mm bottom cap and a one piece chimney tube with 510 drip-tip adapter built in, which I will show as a complete unit tomorrow. If you want it to serve double duty and use cartos, you can add a second cap and a carto sized tube. Even with the complete 1"OD Cartomator One Carto Tank and the Fission insert/chimney, it will be very reasonably priced. Anyway here it is. Shown on a Cartomator ONE bottom Cap 20140717_173501.jpg
    and the unit itself

    There will be a Fission Mini for 22mm tanks upcoming. But the 25.5mm Tank is so much better suited, with it's huge deck space, that it seemed like a natural fit and allowed us to integrate set screw holes for wire holding, as well as using the milled "wings" on the Fission deck to offer some air adjustment.. I'll have pics of the complete unit tomorrow at some point. It should be available for sale in the next few days. But let's see the thing first!

    Looks awesome! Any thoughts on a bottom fed 22mm (or smaller version). Imagine an American made genni Reo. Could you post a pic of the current 25mm built? It's been a while since I did a genni build..

    We are experimenting with bottom fed concepts. But nothing concrete yet. I like your thinking though.
    I got a little delayed with the pics after we started assembling units and engraving tubes and bases. But I promise pics by tomorrow. We really aren't making many of these. 50 in the first run. All engraved with serial.
