    Unless someone can talk me out of it, I'm probably going to pull the trigger on the black one in the next couple of days.

    Oops... a little clarification would help, huh? I meant the black Beacon mod. BTW, I just ordered it and it'll be my first mech. :drool:

    Not sure why, all of a sudden, I can't edit my previous post. Anyway, my Beacon mod is on the truck, delivery scheduled for Monday.

    UPDATE: I guess Monday came early. FedEx just delivered it. I was surprised how small it is. With an 18650 battery installed, and no atty, it's 3.75" long and 7/8" in diameter. With the stainless steel Tobh perched on top, it's 5 5/8" long and looks "sick as t!ts". The throw on the firing button is less than 1mm. I'm in my office and looks like a fog bank has rolled in, and that's with a 1.1 ohm build.

    Let me know if it keeps working well...because I need a good authentic without the $200 pricetag!!

    Roger that! That's why I jumped on this mod like a chicken on a june bug. Designed and made in the US, serialized, authentic, excellent reviews... what's not to like about it?

    When I mentioned to some other vapors that I was seriously considering a telescopic mod, the subject of voltage drop was brought up. Out of curiosity, I checked the voltage of a freshly charged VTC5 battery... 4.24volts. I put the battery in the mod and placed the negative lead on the side of the 510 connector and the positive lead directly on the center pin. I hit the fire button and the DMM was reading 4.24 volts, with an occasional drop to 4.23, then back to 4.24. This was done with no load on the battery, just the DMM. I don't have an inline volt meter, so that was the best I could do. All said and done, I'm quite pleased with my latest acquisition. I big :thumb: goes to Beyond Vape for providing an excellent alternative for those of us on a budget, or just can't justify spending $200+ on a mech.

    I'm not going to say it "hits like a train" because the juice I'm vaping is max VG, 0mg of nic and the current build in my Tobh is 1.1Ω.

    Nice one, glad you're happy with your new Beacon.

    I'll post pics of it with my s/s Tobh and black Kayfun later today.

    I've re-built the Tobh to .8Ω and am vaping Suicide Bunny Claim Your Throne @ 6mg nic. (Note: I have no preference one way or the other for Skyline Vapor, they just happen to be one of the first search hits that came up) That aside, the graphic on the bottle looks like the queen is holding the king's head, not just his crown.

    Here's a pic of my Beacon mod with the Tobh atty... the atty is a bit out of focus :(

    Nice one! How's it been performing for you?

    Outstanding! The only beef I have with it is that the center pin on the base has a tendency to back out and I occasionally have to tighten it up. I've been told that's not uncommon with mech mods, but this is my first mech so I can't personally attest to that. I just wish they'd milled out a slot on that center pin so it could be tightened with a screwdriver. I'd toyed with the idea of putting a drop or two of blue Loctite on the threads, not the red stuff! However, I've a feeling that is going to affect the voltage drop and overall performance of the mod. Speaking of voltage drop... I had it checked at a local B&M and it was less than .04 volts. I'm not a cloud chaser and I can certainly live with that. It and the Tobh are playing nicely together. All in all, I highly recommend the Beacon as a first mech mod.
