    I'm vaping my Lost Vape Drone BF now and it's a great vape. Big capacity bottle, DNA 166 (it's a DNA 200 limited because it only uses 2 batteries)
    Well worth looking into

    Not a lot to report yet, as I've only used it for a few hours. I use power mode, so I can't comment on temp control. So far it has worked well, with just one glitch - when I changed the battery, it didn't retain the screen orientation setting. While smaller than the Inbox, it isn't quite as comfortable in hand as I had hoped, since the corners are sharper than those on the Inbox. It doesn't seem to be any lighter, either. It does seem to be a solid little bugger, though - no rattles. I'm using the harder plastic bottle, no leaks so far.

    *edit - I had turned off the LED, and it did retain that setting when I removed the battery. I haven't checked to see if there are any firmware updates.

    There are firmware updates though tread carefully as I have seen at least one user in the RSQ thread that ended up with a brick when updating firmware I think.

    Thanks Pianoguy, I’ll stick with my Inbox. The sharper edges would kill any advantage of the slightly smaller size. Don’t need it anyway as I have a Capo and a Pico for a small out and about device.

    Agree ... When it leak, feel oily or poor power or any issue, dismantle all and wash it with soap ...,

    So, I’ve been using my gbox and a narda clone for a few weeks now, and I love squonking. The flavour is amazing, and although its a little fiddly with the gbox its not bad.

    now thinking of getting another squonk and have a voucher for heavens gifts so was thinking of the pico squeeze and a wasp.

    Any thoughts on the pico? Looks unregulated, which will be a first for me, so I’m a little nervous.

    The Pico acts like a mech (battery voltage), but does have protections such as atomizer short, battery cutoff, etc. As long as you've got a quality cell in it and pay attention to the build resistance, probably not much to worry about.

    It seems to state it has a 50w limit as well, but I've read where folks compare it to a mech and claim there is no 50w limit, all depends on your build. Maybe folks that are more familiar with it could comment.

    I picked up a pair of them (around $16 on FT), but haven't fired them up yet. I would have no problems with them though as long as you know you have a build that is well within the limits of your battery.

    They look like they will be great little drop in the pocket mods when you're ducking out of the house for a bit. I like the pico 75 for a stealth vape and once I started squonking, figured it was a no-brainer. Everyone should have at least one, or two, lol.

    I'm planning on running mine with a Wasp Nano most likely, but I've come to really enjoy the Nudge 22 lately.

    Thanks for the info. I normally vape around 0.5 ohms and use either sony vct 6 or samsung 30q so should be ok. Anyways I vape below 30 watts so should be ok.

    You sound like me, vaping style. I don't build crazy low, either and even when I do, I end up going lower wattage. Currently running a 0.25 ohm fused clapton in my SMM @ 35.5 watts, and it's nice. That's actually the lowers I've ever gone. Usually I'm around 0.4 ohm or above and even lower power.

    I'm about to start experimenting with my first unregulated as well (a Pulse BF). Going to run some Sanyo NCR27000B's in it (only 15A battery), but figure I'm starting at 0.6 ohm, plenty within the safe range for that battery.

    I think the Pico is a no-brainer for the money. If you want a small little squonk for certain occasions, it should fit the bill. The folks here who run them really seem to like them for what they are.

    That type of Vape style is a Very Good fit for a Pico Squeeze.

    And with a NarDa on top of it, you will have a Great Compact set-up.

    There are so so so many unregulated squonkers available at crazy high prices...but so few regulated.

    There's a big opportunity here.
