Found a nice small compact 18650 battery, affordable, and tough.

    Looks like a nice mod. Pocket-friendly. I like the black version myself.

    Seems regardless of color (I chose black btw) are all matte feel finish. I'm wondering if I can apply ceramic gloss on it as to avoid wear and tear. There's also a black/blue splatter I'm waiting for them to have on arrival. It's truly a tough built mod. I've seen a video of it being run over by a car & truck.

    Just the specs seems dubious for one 18650 battery...i wouldnt put any of My batteries at 0.08 ohms, and in a regulated mod, with a necessary voltage drop from electronics...? What am I missing?

    Almost apologetic, I am a skeptic of...anything. Do you plan on running over your mod in a truck?

    Do you want paper towels to hold bowling balls, or do you want them to absorb spills?

    The iPhone has a Retina display.
    What's awesome about a Retina display? The term was trademarked by Apple :/

    Ni200 coils have a very low resistance so .08Ω is nothing special. In fact, a .05 limit is pretty much standard nowadays. On a vw device the amp draw is determined by the set watts, not the resistance, so a low cutoff is in itself not a problem.

    It's not so much the durability I'm interested in, it's the simplicity of the mod itself. But no, I don't typically drop ohms that low no where near that (no longer building coils). It's simple, it's small, and I like the compact design. Even more so, reminds me of my old SX mini S class. The battery cap even is easy to access it better than the s class. Simplicity, design, & pocket friendly. That's the only reason why I want it.

    I fail to understand why people push me nowadays for more watts than what I'm proudly & happily vaping on. The nano micro tfv4 coils I vape on satisfies me just fine at no more than 40-45w. Sure, I might be missing out battery life, but again unnecessary amount of watts I don't need.

    I'll do a review on it when it arrives. I may possibly be thinking in their stabilized wood 75 watt dual. Something I've been eyeing on for quite awhile.

    I vape typically at 0.25 to 0.35 coils. What do you mean? Is there something I should be concerned with? I don't build anymore. According to the ohms law calculator, I should be fine, no? Or do you mean does it have a voltage low notification for safety?

    A regulated mod, so ohms law doesn't apply (as we know it). The resistance doesn't determine the amp draw, watts and battery charge level do:

    Watts (+10% or so to account for device inefficiency) / battery charge (lower = higher amp draw, so use 3.2v or the actual cutoff voltage if known) = amp draw

    In a series mod the battery charge is multiplied by the number of batteries, in a parallel mod the amp draw is divided between the batteries. The end result is that the amp draw per battery is the same in parallel and series mods (if the number of batteries is the same, of course).
