    Yes, we did it [​IMG]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    And did it right This thing is beautiful ~ very much the KISS, and bettered with a touch of the LORD!

    What is it?
    A 22mm Telescopic Mod. With AFC top-cap, brass accents and a fully engraved body (including the internal tube). I won’t dwell much on it’s construction, fit and finish since it is a brother of the Gus-LORD, which has been reviewed in depth by me (link below) This version of the KISS is a carbon copy of the LORD, but with a different body engraving design.

    Pls see here: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/apv-discussion/526978-gus-lord-telescopic-mod-pictorial.html

    Note: Same ‘extra-long’ top cap affair here to enable 18350 battery configuration, since the base body size of Gus mods are longer than other mods.

    First things First:

    [​IMG]
    Removing the stock tele-pin and fuse setup

    [​IMG]
    Slim positive pin (with fuse) inserted

    [​IMG]
    In 18350 Mode

    [​IMG]
    In 18500 mode

    [​IMG]
    In 18650 mode

    How the package came in:
    [​IMG]
    Comes with a Spares bag containing some fuses, spring, O-rings and one 'slim' positive pin. And the Kick Sleeve.

    Kiss-QE with a few Attys:

    With Kayfun Lite

    [​IMG]
    With Russian 91%

    [​IMG]
    With Prometey-II Ti

    BOTTOMLINE:

    We conceptualized its making since March 2014, details >HERE< and today we are holding the baby in our hands. Wow! It is a dream come true. Absolutely the way we wanted it, deep engravings, new smooth ‘short-throw’ switch and dimples removed from the body ends. This is a gorgeous piece, very much in sync with our Gus-LORD. Fantastic workmanship by Gus, as usual
    !

    Yes, I love it This is one more keeper in our Vape Arsenal
    !

    Thank you Gus Mod for getting it to us

    Shipping Update : As of May-10, 2014

    Till date 20 units were shipped. Until serial #25 from the top, sans the few who had not yet paid and/or have asked 'other' stuff to be added which aren't in stock.

    Coming Monday/Tuesday (May-12/13) the next batch of 20 will be shipped. And by Thursday/Friday (May-15/16) the rest will be shipped, thus task 'completed'.

    Qorax, thanks again for putting this together for us. The Kiss-QE is absolutely amazing and works just as good as it looks. My Provari was always my go to device but since I got my Kiss-QE all dialed in it hasn't left my hand... Worth every penny i my eyes!

    Kudos to both you and Gus on an amazing and superb device!
