    Thought it may be nice to have thread just for the mechs.

    Here is my Kennedy Roundhouse and Trickster RDA.

    Went with a single 3*26/36 clapton and got .35

    I do like that I can go single or dual coil but find that one multi wire works best. You can see how the top cap can spin to close off the dual holes and just have one airflow open.

    The only thing I am not happy with this is, is that the vent holes are at the bottom which encourages a positive down battery insertion. Any short will now vent that battery. Positive up will fire the coil instead. At least this is how I understand it.

    So come on, show us your mech and build.

    Looks good.
    If your running single coil try to plug up the other two airflow holes unless you like it that way.

    The top cap provides for single coil use by giving the option of only having the one side of the airflow open.

    This is a Kennedy 24, the airflow holes are in the base of the deck, nothing on the top cap

    The Trickster top cap has three cut outs that can cover or leave open the base airflow intakes. Tricky ne'

    Surprisingly this thing hardly ever leaks unless I am dumb. User error and you can get some coming out of the open airflow if I am lazy and drip down the top without taking the cap off.

    Oh Yeah

    Arc welders are definitely welcome in this thread, but I think we should be mean and if a squonk has a chip, then we ban them

    So no Semi's or NCV2's allowed....? LOL...

    Closest I get to a (glorified) Mech is a NCV2 in any case, but I dont mind a bit of eye candy just to stare at now and again...

    Awesome thread, Mechs dont get enough love these days with all the new pods and regulated devices popping up almost daily!

    Mostly because people dont understand them and those that buy them without the knowledge could not get used to them (or the worse off alternative, for which they want to blame vaping and not lack of knowledge)... always good to be able to educate people on the do's and don'ts of Mechs! Whenever I see a brand new vaper popping up with a Mech in their hands and asking how to use it I urge them to go and put it back in the box until they know Ohms law and battery safety and know how to apply it off by heart...

    Someone gifted me with a Noisy V1 some time ago... simply could not work up the courage to throw a build on it and ended up selling it. My wife also thought of it as the same as keeping a mamba in your bedside drawer.

    Needs a serious polish. Does anyone know of a device one can pick up that would work better than elbow grease.. Something with a buffing disk?
