    I see @BumbleBee has stock of the Coppervape Dvarw plus the drop kit and AFC kits for it!

    Is anyone considering trying this clone out?

    I ordered one - they are the MTL version. The authentic, which I have, is amazing.
    Very limited stock I see.

    I would love to hear your view on the authentic vs clone when you get it if you don't mind?

    My impressions thus far on the Coppervape Dvarw MTL clone compared to the authentic. I bought the clone from The Vape Guy.

    Coiled it with plain 28G Kanthal, 6 contact wraps around a 2.5mm ID at 1.1 Ohms. Wicked with Jellyfish cotton. Vaping at 15W. Using the 1.5mm air flow insert. It comes with a 1.2 mm air flow insert, which is closer to true MTL, but just too tight for me - I prefer a more airy MTL. One has to buy the Normal AFC Kit to get the bigger air flow inserts (1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 mm). A Tight AFC Kit is also available (0.8 and 1.0 mm).

    My authentic was set up the same as above, except for the wicking method. The juice holes in the chamber of the clone are just too small for the Exocet method. So I just lifted the wick tails, slipped the chamber over the tails and inserted the chamber. Cut the wick tails at the top of the chamber and stuffed them into the chamber up against the little juice holes.

    The bad:
    The tolerances on the clone are not nearly as perfect. For example, the little chamber does not fit smoothly into the deck - one has to maneuver it with two hands to get it to slip in - well lubricated notwithstanding. The top cap of the chamber (the one some members forget to put back), stays stuck in the chimney when one unscrews to refill. But, nothing of a fatal nature fortunately.

    The different:
    The clone's air inlet on the outside is narrower. The juice holes in the chamber are much smaller. I have an idea this is a clone of an earlier version of the Dvarw. I have been vaping a 40PG/60VG juice in the clone without any problems at 15W (even did some chain vaping without adverse results - the bubbles keep coming), but a higher VG juice and higher power might create wicking problems. Seems to me the Large Juiceflow Chamber, which is sold separately, is closer to the chamber the authentic MTL comes with. My recommendation is that you spend the extra R60 and get it.

    The good:
    I am vaping the same juice (peach) in both. My palate cannot distinguish any difference in flavour. Flavour is outstanding in both. No leaking or even moisture thus far.

    A more than worthwhile buy at the price imho. Should I pick up any problems going forward, shall let you know.

    Clone left, authentic on the right.

    Thanks for the tag @Andre, and of course for the detailed comparison. It is much appreciated.
    It is good to know the performance is up there.

    That part should be called the goose cap :p

    @Dietz, you asked me the other morning regarding the differences between clones and originals and I think @Andre describes it perfectly. It's those little details that make a difference between good enough and wel done. These are not huge differences but even with my attitude towards so called HE stuff I must admit they do matter.

    If you change setups frequently it may be best to get a good clone but if you are at the setlling down point and intend sticking to a certain setup for more than a month or two, the original would be a worthwhile investment.

    So I guess buying the clone to test and purchasing the original if results are positive theory does have merit as well.

    Regards

    I just pulled the trigger on one from @BumbleBee ... I'm a sucker for a good MTL vape at the end of the day and considering how on point the DL version is, I'm intrigued by this one
