1. Welcome to Thailand Vapers, an English language forum for members in Thailand and the rest of Asia to talk about vaping.
    Commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, vaping is really about the use of personal vaporizers (mods) and atomizers (tanks, clearos, RBAs, RDAs, RTAs) filled with e-liquid.

    Submitted this review just now and the automated response says it will be posted pending approval... have a feeling might be better to post here if it will ever be read at all.

    (note: the product listing says, "This is a special version customized for 3FVape by another manufacturer, we have done quality control.")

    Would like to know what is the methodology of the quality control employed by 3F. The day this arrived it was firing inconsistently from the start. Took a known working atty and mod, test fired several times and recorded the resistance and volts at a power setting. Took the atty off and placed on this mod and fired several times and regardless of power, resistance and voltage jumped significantly with each press. Repeated this experiment with several atties all proven to be good on other mods and faulty on this one. Wonder where the problem is? Inside are electronics of the quality you would expect from a toy at a 99 cent store. There was visible heat damage to 2 integrated circuit chips neighboring the solder point where a lead from the usb charger connects to the main board. The LCD screen is installed upside down(unless there is a flip function in the menu which cannot be verified now... doubtful). The bend of the shape of the flask when looking from top down follows the contour of your hand. The flask can only be gripped comfortably in one way. The display is opposite of that so you will read everything upside down without contorting something or re-positioning the device. To make it worse, the way the LCD sits is to a right angle of the board. The micro ribbon wire was not designed to bend this way. Instead of it being at least folded to make the direction bend so sharply, the ribbon was twisted and crumpled to make the LCD fit through the opening of the plastic housing it sits on at the extreme angled position. This ribbon is brittle and it ripped with only the slightest agitation because it was already stressed so terribly. The micro wires were thereby severed but, oh well ... the device as purchased was already unusable. Unless you like have a randomly fired vape each puff? Hmmmn, let's play "press your luck". Vape, vape, no whammies... vape, vape, F@#K! Lung full of putrid hot a55! Fun! Will make use of the shell by purchasing a competent (possibly original evolv?) chip elsewhere.


    title should read "Vapor Flask SQUONK Knock off". Moderator, a little help?

    Aha. Cheapest found previously was over 300. Far too much on just a Lord's salary. 200 is more in the realm of plausible purchases. Something about going north of 300, unless you are pulling in Emperor money, just makes it seem that one would naturally respond to a shopkeeper upon being told the price with something immediate and instinctive. Probably something not much unlike, "F23k Off!" after which, no one would likely come running to tell you how wrong you had been.

    "what's going on here"
    "I dunno, I just told him the price and he flipped out and took off."
    "well, how much is it?"
    "340"
    "F@#k off, cบหt!"

    No reason not too. Hence,
    Looking forward to it! Meanwhile piss'd a few hours away today trying to just make it mechanical AND not modify any of the hardware. Kind of tricky. Will post if a solution worth sharing emerges.
    **Updated**
    How do you become a member of the group? Searched briefly but had to quit before finding the answer. Facebook will make Darth's head implode if logged in for more than just a few short minutes at a time.

    Thanks.
