    Me too. And if anything other - it'd be one of my 20mm mods (18650 tho).

    With my hand issues, I just don't know until I use something for a few days. I've had some surprises. Considering my right wrist has been completely messed up for the past 5.5 weeks, I'll know pretty quickly.

    This one is 18mm. Pairing it with the Mini Buddha. I ordered a 17mm as well, but they still don't have it in stock. Hoping I don't have to cancel and order a different one, as I chose colors the authentic hasn't been made in.

    That's because you don't look at the Chinese oddities :D It is 18mm just like they said :) I've already put that RTA on it to see how they look together.

    Pipeline Slim Pro is 18mm at the top cap. I know because I'm trying to decide between it and the 17mm Dicodes Telegonos for my 17mm Flash-e vs and Penelope v4. Takes 2500mah 16650 Sanyo batts too, lol

    Ok, folks, would like your input. My Estia has been running great on my sx mini s class for months until a few days ago. Then the vape started going in and out, and the resistance was moving around. It was time to recoil anyway. I took the Estia apart, checked everything and recoiled. Same problems. I then thought it was the mod. However, the mod is working fine with my other attys.

    So I put the Estia on my sx mini m class, and same problems.

    The Estia will work perfectly on: both Sigelei 100Ws, Sig 50W and sx300 mod. None of my other regulated mods really have the power to run it so I didn't bother trying it on them. At the moment its on one of the 100Ws.

    Does anyone have any ideas for me? Weird they were a good match for so long and now the Estia doesn't like either sx mini, but both sx minis like all my other attys. And believe me, I've switched tons of attys and mods around here trying to troubleshoot.

    Have you accidentally switched the power modes on the minis? Probably not, but all I can think of off the top of my head.

    Nope. I had to change the m class for it. And I tried several other attys on both minis so those settings got quite the workout.

    The 510 pins on the minis aren't stuck. And I always screw on the attys first and then put in the battery.

    No one has any suggestions about why my Estia is divorcing my sx mini in favor of the Sigelei?

    Siegeli has infected it with "vaprus" (that's a cross between vape and virus). The Siegeli, of course, is immune to this "vaprus".

    That's all I can think of, lol, sorry.

    You say Estia works elsewhere and everything else works on the Minis, so yeah, I got no idea. Must be some sort of connection issue, only between the Estia and Minis, I guess.

    I know, its like paranormal vapetivity. I'm mad about it, lol, because the Estia and sx mini were an elegant pair. And I loved the powerful mode for it.

    So now I'm debating buying an sx350 mini chip and making a new mod just for the Estia, or just buying another Sigelei.

    I'm really liking this right now for $65

    [​IMG]

    Temp control (I know you don't like nickel though, of course you could always use To), dual 18650s, plenty of watts, looks pretty darn good, and man, it feels great in hand. I was blown away when the IPV4 arrived yesterday, here is a size comparison to a Mini (sorry, M-Class is in other room and I got an Ethel on my lap, but they are the exact same size anyways)

    [​IMG]

    For the price its hard to beat. I ordered from Wake and Vape (about 4/5 of us cancelled with VapeNW for various reasons and ordered through them). No tax if out of CA, just shipping. Pretty much the best price out there right now, and you get a free vape sock (it's pretty cool, lol). We bought them out, but they have more coming in stock. It's $70 on preorder right now (it was $75 and there is a $10 coupon code for the IPV4, not sure if it's still good, but it might be).

    Just thought I'd chime in with that, very very hard to beat for the price.

    It is. How do feel about the build quality? I have an old ipv1 that's been a workhorse, but was not impressed with my ipv mini. At least the Sigeleis are built like tanks, but certainly not elegant, lol! I do admit the Estia benefits from dual batteries.

    I've also thought about buying something cheap with a c frame (Vapmod maybe) and rebuilding it with a good chip, 510 and wiring. Wish the Pyra was up to the task, but 30W and light components, its really not.

    Build quality seems just fine to me, especially considering the price of admission. Some places are selling the IPV4 for $80 - $100, and I think if it's retail everywhere was in that range, it would still be worth it.

    It's got the bad .... YiHi SX330 V4S in, and a firmware update is supposedly coming soon to increase its watts from 100 to 120 (lol, I know neither of is will ever touch that, but I like the fact that they update their firmware after launch).

    The taco shell goes on and pulls off very easily for swapping batteries, and its a really soft, comfy, grippy material that feels really nice in the hand.

    Also, as you can see in the pics, it's not a whole lot bigger than the Mini considering its a dual battery device.
