Mech Mod Just Arrived

First mech mod just arrived, only 24hrs in but really enjoying it.
I've been loving my little $6 dripper for six months or so and was wanting a tube mech to stick it on. Splashed out $7 on the mech mod with three different sized battery tubes and am a happy camper. Thinking I might pick up another of the same so I can have two different sizes on the go at once and some spare parts.
Next on the menu is an 18350 battery for it, would be nice to have a tiny set up for some short ventures out and mainly as I think it will look cool with the tiny dripper.

After using regulated variable devices for 9 months I was expecting to be left lacking running my usual 0.5-1.5 builds on it but it's vaping away just fine on 0.5&1.2 so far. Once I've gotten used to it I will probably chuck some lower builds on just to see what it can do.

The shiny brass finish, seen on the smaller tubes, is not really to my tastes but after a day of vaping on the big one the finish has settled down comfortably. I still need to adjust the pins a little to get everything sitting flush but it has new toy status at the moment and I'm constantly messing around with it.

Glad I tried a mech mod, I appreciate the simplicity. If they can be likened to the straight razor of the shaving world then I'm rocking a Gold Dollar.

tl:dr
~£10 mod/dripper combo cheered up my day
 
Six weeks of daily usage, I love it.

Decided I needed a change and put the Velocity mini on it today, ok but back to the Derringer tomorrow.

My Coolfire IV is now a neglected backup I haven't touched in weeks.
 
Very nice setup. I have a couple of Derringers that I haven't picked up in a bit, I should throw a build in one soon! That Caravela looks very nice as well. You should pick up a brass top cap and drip tip to complete the look!
 
Thanks, I tried a brass drip tip and it looked a bit odd, might try a brass top cap for the Derringer and see if that helps but I'm pretty happy with it as is.
Switched to 18350 mode for the past few days. I like the low profile, 10ml juice for scale. I had an even patina with 18650 and after 15 mins of Brasso action with the 18350 set up it still looks like a frankenmod.
