GP Series by VapourArt - Official Thread for GP Spheroid, GP PAPS, X, GP Piccolo, GP SnP and more - Part 1
Hello to all the people here in ECF :)
We are a team of modders, the PAPS TEAM and would like to present you a little from our history in modding as for example the smallest and thinnest mod you have ever seen for 14500 battery:
the GP PICCOLO v1 & v2 first designed on March 2012 and discontinued on July 2012.
piccolo |ˈpikəˌlō| noun
a small flute sounding an octave higher than the ordinary one.
Its length is 71mm and its diameter is 16mm.
It is SS and its small size and the thin tube helps the mod's conductivity and it is very comfortable.
The inner diameter of the tube is 14.40mm till the 4 air holes, then it becomes 14.80mm to give sufficient space for the movement of gases in case of a short from the positive pole. The poles have brass connectors for better conductivity. The v1 & v2 had brass button too.
The button at the bottom of the tube is extremely convenient due to its just 0,5 mm travel which is extremely smooth. The same happens with the lock ring which can be locked-unlocked just with a flick of the finger!
The overall size of the GP PICCOLO makes the placement of the bottom button natural in contrast with longer mods where it becomes tiring.
All tests have been made using IMR 14500 batteries and we recommend only them for that mod. Of course, one can put protected batteries, but there is a huge difference between them and the IMR batteries in efficiency, safety and duration, so it is an obvious choice.
It works with one 14500 IMR battery for 2-2,5 hours of use, (depending of the resistance value of course) a little less from a 18350 AW IMR battery in the GP PAPS, the bigger brother of GP PICCOLO.
The positive pole is movable so it can accept any kind of atomizer whether it has a longer 510 threading connection like Line Genesis or a shorter one like A2 without leaving any gap. The pole can be regulated from both sides: screwing the spring by hand or from the upper side with a small screwdriver.
The size of an ego battery 650mAh, 900mAh and 1100mAh compared with GP PICOLLO:

Right now, we have almost finished the production of GP PICOLLO v3, which shall be available for sale through Vapour Art Store, (www.vapourart.com) before Christmas.
GP PICOLLO shall come in 2 formats, the Classic Piccolo (version 2.5) with a thin form factor, an initially limited batch for the lovers of the old series and the New Piccolo (version 3) for a better handling and a shape able to accept thicker atomisers and continue to be slick.

The New Piccolo and maybe the Classic Piccolo shall be available in brushed and polished for the body tubes, while the top cap and bottom switch shall be polished. The button has adjustable travel to suit every need, from a clear sense of push to an almost touch button.
I'll update that thread later with more photos, descriptions for our other creations like the GP PAPS mod, the GP Spheroid atomiser, updates for the existing and upcoming projects.
