    Stay away from the hobo it's awful.

    Focal has a Velocity clone with BF pin though and it's great.

    $9.55-$10.05 Velocity Style Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer w/ Bottom Feeder Pin- Black

    Took out that piece of junk 510 and installed a Fat Daddy 510.
    Chucked it in a drill and turned it down till it just fit in the cup. Couldn't stand an atty sitting a 1/16" off the 510.

    bought the hobo bf from A.C. USA warehouse, have it on my 2015 Woodvil with an airflow drip-tip and it works great.....maybe i got lucky, also bought the Zorro bf atty and haven't tried it yet.

    went back to using the original bf atty that came with my Geyscano, it's still working just fine.

    Well it worked for around 3 months then the chip went bad. Whenever I insert a battery it says that the Battery is empty.

    Guess I'm going to have to stick to Mechanicals Bottom Feeders.

    Anybody know of a replacement board that will match the holes. Hate to dump the box.

    You can replace it with a real or clone dna40, will take a little effort, but some of us did it... I replaced mine with a rayn clone40 board, sacrificing the original board to use the switches. In retrospect you could use anything to mount tact switches on, wire them to a dna40 style board and go along your way. Plus any board is better than what comes in this box... I lost the cosmetic hood covering the board, and I made a hot glue mess, but it works fine, and the slide on cover hides everything. I also put in a keystone battery sled just because I had one ;) there are some pictures in this thread I posted earlier. Its not hard if you can solder. Good luck.

    I put an authentic DNA 40 in mine but the Geyscano board is configured different and longer so the up/down won't line up. I cut the Geyscano board just above the buttons and wired them directly to the DNA 40 but it's still fiddly to get placed just right. Easiest thing would be to use through hole buttons instead of the board mounted tacts for the up/down but that would change the overall look.

    As far as a direct replacement that's just a drop in, I don't know of one. I've never came across a board that was configured or the size of the one in the Geyscano.

    Putting in a real dna40 would be easy assuming you can solder. Like I said I used hot glue because it was easy. It's not pretty but it works fine.

    Out of sheer boredom I got Angelcigs Authentic S-body S-CA3 50W 18650 Variable Wattage VW Box Mod. Actually I like it better than the Geyscano. if it weren't for my arthritis I would have kept it but bottle removal is an big problem for me so it's in the classys. :(

    Only 4 days but this way better than the brick Geyscano. No issues with the chip and it appears to work much better. Fit in the hand very nicely and my only problem is the bottle on off and that's because of my arthritis not the fault of the device. All that and a better price point.....it's no REO. lol

    Ok Unsure you convinced me. Just bought the S-body S-CA3 50W 18650 Variable Wattage VW Box Mod from Angel.
    I like the look of it, although the Button in the front instead of on top looks like a recipe for Misfires. Sigh...

    A contributing factor is that for whatever reason my Reo LP will only accept my Reomizer II RBA. I tried adjusting the pin with screwdriver but for whatever reason the Pin won't rise.
    So none of my other RBA will connect. Get's a little boring with using only one RBA.

    Seems that this design of APV has been out for over a year. Maybe they have the bugs worked out.
    This is a post from a year ago.

    Different display but basically the same. I can say it feels and works better than the Geyscano (low bar I know). What I find annoying which isn't a big deal is every time I change out the battery and not fast enough it reverts to 50watts instead of my setting.

    What kind of battery life are you getting. Are you using the RBA that came with it. What Ohms are you at?

    I am using AW IMR 2200 and getting a half day (20watts) No, not using the RBA which came with it. My coil is 1.1Ω. If you figure how to adjust the 510 connector on this let me know.
