    UPDATE:

    901s will be available by custom order only (contact me at ryan@rnrmanufacturing.com for more details.

    510 Mods will come with a custom 510-to-901 adapter that will ensure proper fitment and optimal feed performance on our bottom feed mods. However, our shipment of adapters (we expect them today, but we have no guarantees) has not gotten here, so we are out of stock, but will mail them out to customers who have already purchased our product and to customers that make purchases today. All orders placed after next week Wednesday 06/09/2010 will ship with the adapter. Sorry for the inconvenience.



    With most of the formalities complete, we will being to start taking and fulling orders for our first products (yet to be named, see below). But before we do, I thought it would be a good time to do a formal introduction about us.

    R&R Manufacturing is a family owned and operated business primarily consisting of myself (Ryan) and my father (Ron). Like many of you, we started out as your typical e-cigarette user, tying to find a better alternative to traditional smoking. We started out with starter kits and we were officially hooked and were able to stop smoking traditional cigarettes 3 days after taking up vaping. After a few weeks, we noticed some of the inconveniences associated with e-cigarettes, while I was able to adapt the best I could (tried every cart filler mod out there, finally settling on dripping and ordering mods to compensate for the very short battery life and longevity with kit batteries), my father was not so forgiving and went back to smoking.

    Determined to get my father back on the vape train, I set off on a mission to find a mod that would provide the least inconveniences and something that he would consider a true replacement to smoking. While many of the mods we tried were well built and usable (to him), there was one issue that remained open, carts.... Dripping was just not something he could stomach and carts with mods did not perform consistently enough, eventually they all had short comings.

    So we decided to make our own. We had some design requirements that we wanted to make sure was implemented properly into our mod. Here is a short list of what we thought our mod would have to address:

    1. Large battery
    2. No dripping, no carts, no cartos
    3. Easy to use
    4. Comfortable to use and carry
    5. Modular to ensure things could be replaced if needed

    While my father is certainly knowledgeable in many different areas, woodworking is one that he has worked extensively in. He has done, rough carpentry, finish carpentry and furniture making in his life. So wood seemed like the best medium for us, in addition to having the knowledge, he also has the tools needed to make a quality enclosure out of wood.

    After quite a few prototypes we finally had something that worked well and met our design goals. And ever since then, I am happy to say, he is back on the vape train and has not smoked since. Knowing how critical and picky my father and I can be with this sort of thing, I thought if we liked it, others would too, so we started to offer our product to beta testers to put it though its paces.

    And that brings us to where we are now. We have finished all of our testing, addressed issues that were brought to our attention and now have a product that we feel will satisfy even the most critical vaper. We feel that our product will help address many of the shortcomings with traditional e-cigs and mods.

    While we have not named it yet, we will be having a contest to name it shortly, the person that suggests the winning name, will receive a free box mod from us. The contest will be posted once the details have been ironed out, but it will be done on Smokie's syndicateradio ElixirLiquid show. Please stay tuned for details.

    Here is an introduction to our product.


    • Kaji Box Mod (name will change once the contest is complete)

    • Handcrafted 3.7v and 6v wooden box mod (PROTECTED 18650 for 3.7v and 2 PROTECTED rcr123a 3.0v for 6v)
    • Bottom Feeding Juice System (Feeds the atomizer from a 3ml bottle inside the enclosure via a feed button on the cover. No more dripping, carts or cartos, provides the benefits of dripping without the inconveniences)
    • Currently the Smallest Wooden Enclosure Bottom Feeding System
    • 5 amp momentary switch
    • 6 amp master on/off
    • Polyurethane Clear Coat
    • 510 or 901 atomizer connections
    • Box will come with two 3ml bottles (1 service bottle, 1 carry bottle) and a Custom 510-to-901 adapter
    • Hand engraved serial numbers (inside main body and inside of the cover)

    • Batteries, chargers and atomizers are not included

    Because each box is handmade, we will NOT be offering these in volume in order to ensure our quality standards are met, we will post products available for sale on our website(http://rnrmanufacturing.com), every friday evening at 5pm PST (starting next friday 6/11/2010. Once they are sold out, we will update the site again the following week with new stock. We are able to take custom orders and will do so on a limited basis. Please contact me at ryan@rnrmanufacturing.com for more details. Price is $150 + shipping and tax (when applicable) for standard models, custom orders will be priced accordingly.

    Coming this Friday 6/4/2010 we will be offering 5 of our 510 [Yellowheart Main/Padauk Ends]models at a discounted introductory price of $135 + shipping (and taxes when applicable). We will have them up on the website on Friday at 5pm PST.

    Kaji Thanks for answering. Now what happens if the spring collapses? for example i had a mod where the spring collapses and all i had to do was send it in and it was fixed on the spot. We cant fix our own spring or can we? also will you be selling parts on your website for these? excellent work my good man. i definetely want one.
    Thank you

    Hi Cos,

    Again thanks for the compliments, it gives us such inspiration to know that people like our work.

    For a hardware failure such as a malfunctioning switch, we will replace it, just ship it back and we will replace it free of charge as long as you are within the 60 day warranty period.

    As for a collapsed spring, the only time I see this happening on our springs, is due to excessive heat caused by a short, if the short is caused by a component in our product (brass rails, feed tube, switch, etc.) we will fix the problem and the spring free of charge within the warranty period. If the short was caused by a faulty atomizer, battery or improper use, this would be outside the warranty, but we will fix it at your cost.

    If you want to order parts to replace things yourself, we can do that on a case by case basis for now and my offer parts on our site for those who are familiar with soldering. Just a note of caution, if you do decide to do the repair on your own, this will void your warranty.

    Thanks,
    -Ryan
