    I've heard others speculate that lower ohms require lower voltage and may result in longer battery life. But I don't notice that myself. If anything, I'm changing batteries more often with TC. They also say that coils will gunk up less with TC. But I think that's more a result of spaced coils and flavorings in your juice.

    TC does show a lower voltage than the wattage modus, so it should be battery saving. Perhaps the temp-limiting function ( that pulsing rattling sound ) does eat away the voltage that is being saved and more. Haven't tried it myself but would be happy to know the most economic way to use the device as I walk around with 3 Sammy 25r to cover the day :p

    Same here. TC is not for me really and I think it is still in its infancy. I am not interested in getting an M class, my S is more than enough for me. I was interested in seeing the eco mode in my mini though, and see if it makes a difference.

    Modes are just ramp time or power Boost on the high side.
    If you vape consistently for X seconds it will save power............and deliver a weaker vape.

    The advantage of TC is in consistency. Your Vape is regulated to a specific temp according to the Algorithm reading the Coil wire.
    Without TC your Vape continues to rise with duration and can affect vape quality.
    If you get a perfect flavor taste at 430 degrees, you don't want the coil temp rising to 600 degrees.

    just a simple update here.
    soon after I saw the post with the pic of the mod apart, I have figured out how to clear the grain of sand that was making it stick.
    all better now.
    This rig gets some tough abuse daily, it just keeps on ticking.
    The paint is all gone now, it is monotone at this point and looks like it was meant to be that way.:cool:

    Paint damage on an expensive device is painful, but then again, it's an item you use. Go use a Ferrari and expect some wear n tear as well. Wrap up a skin and gone are the cosmetic issues

    I find it more important it can handle a bump, it keeps on working, no issues with the chip n other electrical parts.

    Is it a problem when accidental iquid spills reach the fire button ?

    It occurred a few times that a leak managed to get in the area of the fire button, and this area around the button has a gap big enough for liquid to enter

    Something to be scared about ?

    Just got word from my dealership that the SXmini ML will be delayed until mid November =\
    Did receive little information other than it was some faults with it that needed to be rectified before the mod was shipped of from the factory.
    So for me who pre-ordered it kinda sucks =\

    A good way to regulate your vape quality is with your fire button. Depress the fire button, vape then release the fire button at the precise moment you desire to create the vape you desire

    I'm afraid I didn't get what you mean. How does that regulate the vape quality? Are you referring to the ramp up time?

    If this mod was the size and weight of my IPV D2, I would be first in line to buy one. I'm not comparing the quality or function of the two, it's just so darn heavy. I stopped using my perfectly good IPV mini just because it was too bulky for what it was....well that and the battery door, which I understand is also a pain on this Yihi mod.

    Those battery caps rock. I put them on all three of my SX mini's and finally got to put the nickels I had on my desk in my coin jar. Nathan did a great job with the design and battery changes are a breeze.

    I wish he would come out with some for the flask.
