    This one looks even nicer than the last caravela clone. I said screw it and got one. Will let you all know how it pans out :) Sigelei 8W "Caravella Clone"

    The top cap is a giant bag of derp.

    Hmmm... Sucks being 50 years old, and out-of-the-loop on current slang... (perhaps it's my geographical location :?: )

    Is the button magnetic or mechanical.
    Vaportek has done a crappy job describing it to us.

    I'm confused as to the concern over the top cop. If it is the design, it will be covered when you have a tank on it. What's the problem?

    I think you're confusing concern with thinking it's silly. It seems like Sigelei found people like the nzonic cap with stuff on it, so let's puts stuff on this one too. Kind of like how everything on their site seems to have a sleeve now since people started liking the empire clones.

    Sigelei's Caravela clone? :facepalm: Does it have adjustable center pin or should we wait until a v2 release to include a spring like the #19/20? <smh>

    It's about 5x longer than it needs to be due to the two piece design with ego connector.

    China needs to drop the ego connector and start putting flat caps on their mechs, if people wanna run clearos they can use an adapter.

    for me the presence of eGo is a plus.
    I know might not sound good to you bu I want to use my Evod's from time to time.

    I just threw down an order for this.

    I was considering a #8, and this seemed like a better choice. Based on photos (so who really knows) it looks like it will outperform most Chinese mech mods out of the box. I hope that actually is the case.

    The top cap isn't great. The ego threads are just plain silly. That said, I'll probably end up turning it into an RSST hybrid, so really, who cares?

    GL with the Hybrid. Fusions SG-1 was for the #8 not the #8w but, maybe they have the same threads, cross fingers :D All in all, this looks to be a step above the other $30 caravela mod, but really, another $30 wasted towards a decent mod. The ehpro is good, damn good, a mod in it's own right, hell, save another $30 and you have a GP LUX ! Judging by the pics I can say - wait. Better is coming... Not necessarily from China.
    -er edit Gp lux 120 euro.. Still, worth the wait.. Sigelei #13 if you cant for the win.
    I really do hope the Sigelei 8w is what it is hyped up to be. So in all ernesty I want this mod to meet and exceed everyones expectations :)

    Actually, what am I saying.. After a look at the top cap pics, I am horrified. Not because of the length, but because the top cap is a two part system.. The top cap has a bottom cap that screws onto the battery tube and screws into the top cap housing? .... Check the pics out at vapor tek's website.. Not a clone imo, totally on it's own beast.

    #8 Nzonic(?) cap would fit - wonder if they will offer it in gold tone?

    I personality think it looks very nice inc the top cap I won't use the ego threads but +1 to sigelei for adding them I'm sure there's lots of people who will use them. Personally I think its the best looking sigelei mod they have made and I hope it performs well as I have a preorde.

    If you don't want to jump through the hoops, and wait for months at a chance for Caravela, I see them auctioned on the Caravela forum (Google is your friend) for between $1000-1500.00 ... :shock:

    I would pay $1000 for a tube with a fishing boat etched on the side. It's a no-brainer!
