    Not cheap but some potentially very promising features. Nothing else I know of with that flexibility in the mtl catagory right now. And given it can go to 30W (well from a practical perspective 15-20W if you're not going to carry a bandolier of those 18350s) you can even use a loose mtl/restricted sorta dl with it.

    VV/VW APV Discussion.

    They are currently pricing them at $75 and are selling them directly. As of right now they are not available any other way. SXK-Billet Box has a Facebook page and was taking orders there today.

    So i've been alternating between the various tanks on the BB. The one that I prefer by far is the Insider. Also the coil that works the best for me is a simple 2.5mm st st spaced coil...came out at 0.76 ohm. It just performs beautiful.

    My favorite so far has been those Vaporesso Ceramic SS316L EUC Coil Heads 0.5Ω. You need the Atlantis sleeve and the A-Tank for those. I've also heard good things about the EC-M mesh coils too. Those are going into my shopping cart. ;)

    OMG, this thing is awesome. My Fastech order finally arrived. So far I have only built the RBA that came in the shipped tank, but it is giving a real nice restricted hit and great flavor. Waiting on my new magnifying headset to get here before tackling that tiny Steamtuner or Exocet.

    This BB seems to be a battery damager. Its a bit of a hassle getting it out without damaging the sleeve. What works for me so far is to pry it out halfway at the bottom, and then move to the top and remove it. Not easy though.

    Just received the new five pack glasses for the boxxer. I had to brake mine to get it out. Turns out all five is to wide for the slots. I eventually narrowed one glass and it fits fine now.
    Also found that the tank leaks at the seam (Big Surprise :D). I stuck some PTFE tape on the seam and loaded it up....very good vape. Nice smooth air flow and very good flavor...better than all the bridges I have.
    The leaking thingy is constantly on my mind though.

    Good morning you SXK billet boxers :)

    I've just joined the club...ordered the DNA 60 Kit with a spare tank and the vapeshell tank and bridge. I'm pretty excited in my 50+ kind of way :)

    Comes in a kit with front and back plates, button, other stuff.

    You'll have to look around to find a place that has them in stock. I got mine from BB Vapes Brvnd - "TRVP Billet Box Accessory Set, Batch 1"

    Just so you know...

    This is made for authentic BBs. They don't have a hole for the USB port. I had to tape up my USB port and stick it under the DNA board for the backing to fit. Some other people just cut it off I think.

    The drip tip thing doesn't fit on SXK BBs -- they have different threadings.

    And the oval thing is a hex screw driver which is useful, but unless you have custom doors with a socket for it to rest, it will mean the doors don't fit flush (you can just not put the screwdriver inside the BB).

    Also, for whatever reason the SXK billet boxes seem to always have 1 screw that is stripped in the back plate. I had to get my dad to mill mine out while being careful to not damage the DNA board underneath.

    The good news is I used the USB port to flip my screen before installing (to match an authentic). With that, and the DNA chip, it's nearly impossible to tell it's not an authentic billet box. Actually I don't think it is possible at all. Except maybe for the fact that I was able to update my DNA60 chip and add some better TC software. So in that sense, it's superior to the authentic billet box.

    Edit: Oh! and with the USB port under the DNA board, one of the screws in the back plate would cause it to short. I had to shorten the length of the screw slightly so it wouldn't do that.

    It's good to see a thread for the SXKUSBBB ! I own two authentics and three SXks. Since I prefer a very tight MTL draw, they are all fitted with MF bridges and use Vaporesso 1.3 ohm ceramic coils. I have tried all the other bridges on the market but so far my favorite by far is the MF bridge. Mod Factory store

    Ok thanks for that..that's worth knowing. I may have to cut a slot for the USB and will presumably maybe not have the short then...

    Quite a bit to consider though....but it is a lovely piece of kit :)

    Yes in BB talk, they call this the key. And I was worried about this since I wanted those drip tips with the key part with the drip tip. So I needed a BB drip tip with the authentic threads. I bought four JMK Tips and they screw in just fine with my four SXK BB. Although a few SXK BB users claim theirs uses different size threads than an authentic.
    Well I had to take one of mine apart. And all of the screws were just fine on that one.

    Get a piece of ribbon and put in before putting in the battery, then just tuck in until you want to take out the battery. Ta Da no more problem, lol

    Leaking at the seam has been a known issue for the Boxxer for some time, a bit of teflon plumbers tape will help reduce the leaking. The developer, last I heard, was working on a complete redesign for it as none of the fixes he tried would stop the leaking completely.
