    Yes, it seems to hit or miss with them.
    I took a chance, with the mixed reviews on the FT forum.
    Fortunately FT sent me a replacement.

    That fire button doo is a no go for me,but that new inbox would fit the bill,looks like they fixed that bottle issue,but agreed it would of been nice if they could have made a tad smaller ....

    Rumor has it on the Inbox thread that Hcigar is coming out with an upgrade kit for the original Inbox that will allow use of third-party bottles. No word yet on release date, though.

    Back on topic... sort of

    Dead Rabbit clone from Hotecig USA warehouse... $7.50 when I bought it, $4.50 + shipping ($3.50) right now! I already have some other RDAs coming (including a silver Dead Rabbit clone) I don't need another. This drip tip didn't come with it, but it came with a black one, a multicolored one, 510 adapter, and the posts are silver and gold like the authentic. I am blown away at the craftsmanship of this one, especially at this price.[​IMG]

    Edit: Keeps going in and out of stock. Took 4 days to get to me USPS from NY to OH.

    I picked up a clone DR locally for $12 and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and extras. Only had it a few days but a decent vape, though I like the flavor on my Bonza better (and possibly my Athena). Next on my list when I order, or stumble upon one locally, will be a Drop (and an RSQ or 2).

    edit: I am running the DR 24 with a pretty low ohm single coil, still need to try it with a dual coil setup and see if flavor improves.

    Are you using it in TC mode?
    Mine hits the same as my DNA75 in VW.

    I have a few clone RDAs on the way, so far I have a Goon 1.5 and the black DR. I had also ordered a couple Steam Rabbit clones and a Phantohm, which probably won't get much use since I have the RSQ. I just want to tinker with them.

    Clone RDAs in route from China:

    Black Goon 1.5 from Fasttech
    SS/black Drop from Hotecig
    "Burn Blue" Apocalype Gen 2 from Hotecig
    SS Dead Rabbit from Hotecig

    Thinking of picking up the Vandy Vape Phobia RDA but I need to slow down!

    Nope,using it in vw mode and it just doesn't hit well at all,best way I can discribe it is on my DNA 75 it's a smooth vape,on the rsq it's a labored vape,almost as if the drop rda as no airflow,it's very weird I know but that's my experience :-x

    I'm back with an update on my bricked mod. It's up and running again, WOW!!
    I didn't bother tagging everyone who had questions but i'm going to answer them . I did contact my local b&m regarding the issue but since it was over a month they couldn't help me and had me contact hotcig directly. Hotcig was no help at all and put all the blame on me, stating I didn't know how to update the mod. Also I want to add it was the second update I did to the RSQ because I wanted to see if it would fix the short message I kept getting. (The first update i did fixed the light reset) I have updated plenty of mods over the years without an issue and I wasn't putting blame on anyone really just wanted a solution to fix the problem. Something hotcig wasn't willing to help me with as they just stopped responding in the chat. As far as I know every mod has a factory reset and I tried every combination I could think of. So without the battery in if you hold down the up and down button at the same time and put the battery back in you will get an update message. This got the mod back up and running for me. I only now get a short message when I use my serpent bf fda for some reason. I have changed the build three times in this rda but it seems like the RSQ doesn't like this atty at all. Thats where im at right now. Enjoy every!

    Thanks for the info. However, are you saying that holding up/down while inserting the batter performed a factory reset and it reset everything to baseline?

    Or do doing this give a completely bricked mod the ability to then update the firmware?

    Thanks, I'll be getting one by the end of the week, so want to make a note of this.

    No sorry I should have been more clear. It doesn't send it back to the baseline but it allows you to update the firmware.

    No problems. Great to know that there's a potential failsafe if we are unable to get it into update mode.

    Not sure I'm going to attempt to update mine unless some needed updates become available, but this is good to know.

    I ordered this and an Inbox as my first two sqounk mods, so excited to dip my toes. I do fear I've found another rabbit hole though. :)

    Glad you got it running again.
    I just updated a third one.
    Battery was in, plugged it in, it just asked if I wanted to update or charge.
    Have noted your method, if it gets bricked.
    Hot Cig could use some lessons on customer service and creating user friendly updates.

    CRAP!!!

    Just got mine in the mail. A day later than expected, but was glad to have it before the weekend. My first squonker...

    Well, it's trash out of the box. Put the battery in. Screen fires up fine ,displays normal, etc. Once the mod goes into standby and the screen shuts off, it's toast. Pressing the fire button just displays some pixels on the screen. REALLY??? :mad:

    Tried turning it off before the scree dies, turning it back on, etc. Nope. Once the initial screen displays, I get nothing but random pixels lit on the screen. Dammit. Really wanted to build a new RDA and give squonking a try this weekend.

    I guess before contacting the vendor, I'll download the firmware tool and try to update it....

    That's not good.
    I'd go for the replacement without even trying the update.
    Make a vid of it malfunctioning.
    Even if the update fixes it, I'd be leery of problems down the road.
    If the update dosen't help, don't tell them you tried it. They may try to say you botched the update.
