  Smokeless Owl bottle test
Posted by: vern - 05-25-2015, 10:37 AM - Forum: Boxes and tubes - No Replies

Reading competing forums, and some users seem be think the bottle on the smokeless owl is too soft.
I had a look in my vape box for suitable sized bottles, and found the ones from Darkstar Vapour to be an exact fit, size and threading are perfect.
On a hardness scale, with smokeless owl supplied bottle being a 5 out of 5 for softness, and a hangsen 10ml bottle being 1 out of 5, I would put the Darkstar bottles at somewhere between a 4 or a 4.5 They are squidgy, but not as squidgy as the supplied smokeless owl bottles.

Lets test.

Squonking up is fine, it isnt difficult, when you let go it squonks back much faster. Less than 1 or 2 seconds to return to original shape.
While this seems good, looking at the atty while squonking shows bad results. The bottle returns to shape so quickly that it actually sucks in air past the liquid..so the squonkback isnt sucking back liquid only, but a lot of air and a little bit of liquid. This was on 50/50 liquid. I'd expect the results to be worse with less flowy liquid..the liquid doesnt have a chance to flow back at the speed the bottle is sucking., ...higher vg percentage is what is normally used when dripping so this just gets worse. I dont use high pg juices anymore either.

*IF* the smokeless owl bottles are to be considered sub-par, then my search continues. However, it is relevant to note that I personally find them ok. They squish in, and they squish out, and the excess liquid returns fine. It looks lethargic sometimes, but it *works* fine.
I've returned to the OEM bottle now out of choice.

Welcome guys and gals, and thank you for visiting/registering.
It's early days right now, I'll be adding as many resources, tutorials and links to squonking related products in the next day or so, so that we can have one indexable, searchable place to find out all about our magical squonking boxes, rda's and any required modifications.
I'll also be seeking our the latest devices for sale, home-made or otherwise.

Please stick around, introduce yourself, take a seat and get busy. If you have info to contribute, feel free to start scribbling away in the appropriate forum. Dont be shy!

Take care

  OWL RDA, OML RDA
Posted by: vern - 05-24-2015, 09:57 AM - Forum: RDA and other toppers - Replies (8)

This rda which comes bundled with the Smokeless Owl feeds from the post holes as supplied.

It is very simple to get it to feed from the bottom, just drill a hole through the post after unscrewing the bottom screw and lifting the top post out
   
the hole should be drilled at the shoulder, such that it ends up being the lowest point INSIDE the atomizer

Clone RDA from Fasttech (instructions courtesy of gooner1)

first push out the centre pin and Delrin insulator with some needle nosed pliers

Now with a stanley/craft style knife? cut a 2mm - ish sized channel along the delrin insulator, i used a coil winding shaft for this (see pic).

now re- fit the insulator and push in the pin, it really is that easy
