    Too bad it's 24 mm, looks like a nice small tank for a Pico. I love my Merlin, which does fit. The "competition" for this tank might be the Goblin v3, which also comes with a single a dual coil deck, about 2.5 ml volume, but is only 22 mm. If I were to get a 24 mm tank, I'd probably want more volume than 2 ml.

    It would be Euro restiction proof.

    Bummer. I cant put a 24 mm on my two Pico's.

    I DO have two eVic VTC Mini's. Would give me a reason to use one of them.

    Goblin V3 only has 16mm deck (smaller).
    Just wonder which one gives better "max air flow"?

    The 23mm Augvape Merlin currently sold in China seems to be a better choice for those intend to get their first Merlin tank because it allows one to change from 2.5ml to 4.0ml at will and vise versa.

    I have a chat today with Fasttech support, they told me they will add that China version to their stock in the future...

    I don't understand why the dual-coils post hole shape that way? That long shape will only shorten the distance between the two points where coils are tighten, i.e. it only make it more difficult to use lengthy coil.

    For more dynamic/compex coils and to reduce post length/chamber size.

    It might look funny on the VTC Mini. All of my 22mm tanks come right to the edge.

    I get it, it's short... but I really dislike "mini" tanks that are 24, 25mm... and this is CERTAINLY not the only one. I may well end up with it anyway, but surely there's better terminology. I have Picos too (not solely) and those are definitely not the only device that max out at 22-23mm, at least if overhang bothers you.

    Nice looking tank, though. I just wish companies were using the term "shorty" or something similar for a short, squat tank. Griffin and SMOK are two other big offenders on that point.

    I like it. I love the short 25-25mm tanks. my Rx200 (2) and my Fuchai 213 (2) all fit 25mm tanks with room to spare. Well, the Rx200 just fits a 25mm Boreas without hanging over the front. The Fuchai 213 has a little room to spare.

    The only mod I have it won't fit on is the Pico. Everything else will take a 25 mm tank just fine. Again, I love my full size Merlin, I'm just not seeing how this will fit into my tank rotation. I already have a Serpent mini for a little 22 mm single coil which is great on the Pico, and can use my Bellus and Merlin on it as well (although I think the S mini is a better balanced size).

    I guess I'll wait for some reviews of this and the Goblin before deciding (also like the extension kit for the Goblin for those times I might want more volume).

    My experience tells, the bigger the distance the more flexible for complex coil build. Post length and chamber size can be adjusted even if it is a round hole...

    May be Roxy can design a square single coil deck with bottom-squre chimney, this will max out the distance between the 2 posts.

    You should design one, get it approved, and get it manufactured.

    I bought 2, the black one has problem with the battery cap at the bottom, sort of too loose and I always accidently open it... I end up bending its hook with pliers. The blue one has no problem.

    Man... if you have the budget why wait? This is the best mod I have ever bought so far. How nice if I can have a short Merlin sitting on it...

    The bottom battery hinge scares me.
    That blue one looks great!

    Definitely going to pick up one of these.

    MMW, do you know if it has juice flow control? It looks like it does...
