    It does come in a whole bunch of colors, the gold and rainbow were LE and the only place I found them in the US was at VaporDNA. They are now out of stock. Aliexpress has them but they don't ship to the US anymore. :(

    I'm sure one of our overseas friends here would forward them to you provided you cover shipping.

    Have you considered these?

    Wotofo X SMM Serpent Elevate RTA Vapor Range Retail

    They were originally single coil, now I can only find duals but I still use a single coil in them. Needs plenty of wicking but I get a great vape from them. If interested I can give a few tips on how I do mine.....
    Not the prettiest of tanks, but not too bad either. They have gold and rainbow.

    I have two of the single-coil Elevates in rainbow. It is pretty in rainbow but not as pretty as the Intake. Of course, the vape is the biggest part and I do like the way the Elevate vapes. Vapor Range did have the single. If they still do, I might pick up a gold. I wish it was shiny instead of the sandblasted finish but we take what we can get. ;)

    It is pretty, especially with the nice DT. Thank you. I have seen @SnapDragon NY's Elevate on her Thor. It is a nice RTA that produces a great vape. Now, if you want to talk DTs, I have a beef there too. John Beam is apparently sick and I have an order in with him. I do hope he is doing okay and will be well enough to work soon. His health is of greater concern than my DTs. That said, I am looking for DTs that are customized to the level that John will customize them. I have some gorgeous DTs he has made for me and all others pale in comparison. It isn't my week and it is only Monday. :oops:

    I do like my rainbow Elevates. I use them on my Solos.

    Great minds think alike lol. I have the same set up except the red in my solo is on top. I know i could turn it the other way, with the blue being on top but this is the way it came so I just left it. I will try to post pic in a bit.

    Intake dual is my recommendation imo it's easier to build than Zeus x and hads slightly better flavor

    What country do you live in? The single-coil Intake has been discontinued but is still available from Aliexpress is ALL of the colors, including the LE colors. They don't ship to the US but do ship most other places. You can also buy the dual-coil Intake from them.

    I got it straight from OBS Crius times.
    When filling keep it horizontal. As you're filling it, tilt it down towards the base, so that the air bubble is down. Don't overfill, a minor bubble is needed for the wicking action. Close it while keeping it completely vertical, base up.
    It takes practice but it's doable!

    hehehe... you probably know what kind of reply from me for the above ...:sneaky:

    Here it goes:
    The easiest way is to use only Single Coil Zeus (all of them, 7 in a roll):

    1. See the bubble glasses? It is for bigger capacity, nothing else.
    2. 5 original Zeus tank, 2 clone. The clones have chimney with smaller diameter than the original's, good for those who like slightly tight airflow and most importantly, they are cheaper.

    I bought two rainbow Dual Coil Intake RTAs. It doesn't come in gold (yet.) The improvements over the single-coil version (which I like) are perfect. I set one up with a single coil and it is MUCH less finicky to wick than the original. The flavor is terrific. I would have to say that for me, it is a toss-up between the Zeus X with a single coil and the new Intake with a single coil. I like both very much!

    Not a chance. There are just too many. And, TBH, there's not enough of any kind of unique benefit to any bottom air RTA to justify such a collection.
