Lol, its the bell something attie on vapourwall. The top bit is shaped like a bell. Looks good and has got good reviews. Cheap as you like too although I think the current lot is sold out.

A chap that reviewed it referred to it as having a bellend, so that's its name now in my book, lol :P

Its a genesis too. The bellend supposedly helps with vapour production,  lol.

I'm waiting for it, has been shepped like a week ago, so i think not much to wait.
I've done a clear tank for it and i'll test it as soon as the atom arrives, if someone is interest i can do some other one.

Next question to Scott unless someone else knows the answer
Is there an ecr code or a link to click so when I buy one ecr gets its 10% affiliate commission am not interested in discount but I am interested in keeping scots website running

Simon
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: itsmeitis on June 28, 2012, 07:54:14 PM
@ Sushi : no there's no ECR discount code for usewhile buying a DiD ...
@ Super : are you intending on giving them away or selling ...
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: Supersimo88 on June 28, 2012, 08:06:36 PM
i think on selling for whot i've paid it, only raw material cost plus shipping, but first i want to try it, so i'm sure is perfect.
at this moment i've got only 2 ready so if someone is interested i'll do some more.

bugger ... yes i had a look and now they do it in complete short mode too ... i'd be tempted though, to go with the larger one and also buy the short kit ... that way you get the best of both.

i'd email them and ask them to add a short kit into the original despatch and see if you can get it delivered together and thus save on the postage ...
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: itsmeitis on June 28, 2012, 08:56:17 PM
yes there are clear tanks as mentioned at reply #22 ... those are similar to the one from of my own.
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: chilly on June 28, 2012, 08:59:14 PM
they had the short kit on there befor but now they are selling the full DID kit in short , i just sent them an email to see if they will send me the short instead of the standard size , not that bothered about having both would rather have the slightly smaller one tho if i can , not that it makes that much difference really
Title: Re: DID done it

yes there's not a lot in it and the short will look great ... hope they sort it for you chilly. 8)

i was thinking , any one that is planning to order the DID that wants it in short and standard size should order the short DID , and a seperate standard size positive pole and liner tube and get a clear tank from one of the above should work out cheaper than purchasing the short kit

Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: Jimblob on June 29, 2012, 01:36:53 AM
So is this any better than the Maxi then. How does it compare to a line?

Wouldn't mind one but with my provari only being v1, I usually have to start it off on a different mod and i really can't be arsed, lol.
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: igetcha on June 29, 2012, 01:52:52 AM
hi mate,

personally i think the Line is the slightly better one of the 3 for vapour production, but the DID is most definitely the one that is built to last.....it also has the advantage of a larger tank and is more readily available :)


don't get me wrong though, all 3 are very nice Genesis atomisers and performance wise there is little difference between them (bare in mind that performance is typically down to how you set them up though)

cheers

scott

ps....the cigarette paper trick should sort out most problems when using a Line on a Provari V1 provided you have made the resistance of the coil high enough:-

Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: SUSHIBOY on June 29, 2012, 06:54:46 PM
just the length and once you have one there's a kit to convert to the other

I managed to break my DiD today knocked it off my desk and watched it land drip tip first with a fair old whack!  :o

I thought it was fine at first the coil didn’t even look to have moved, but after a few toots it stopped firing, at first I thought I might have broken my Provari so swapped it for a tank that worked fine, so put the Did on my Lavatube same issue as the Provari. Double checked the coil and that was fine but then notice a little bit of liquid on the 510 connector which was shorting it, so stripped it down and found this:

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k26/bobbins53/didbroke.jpg)

Had a fiddle around can’t get the remaining bit of the tube out so have ordered a new middle section and bottom, just glad he sells spares would have been really annoyed if it was a write off, would have bought another as it is the device I use the most, will have to remember not to leave it right on the edge of my desk from now on!  :-[

Wow! They're not as indestructible as they look.

Perhaps you could get the broken tube welded to your base for an extra-strong backup version, after removing the washers and spacers.

I'm considering drilling a 1 inch hole in my coffee and work tables to cradle my top-heavy DID/Lavatube, after seeing your misfortune!
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: bobbins53 on July 03, 2012, 12:27:48 AM
 I think the way it landed was the problem if it had landed on its side it might have been a different story, I was quite surprised by the amount of sound it made guess the weight of the Provari didn’t help.

That is a very good idea getting it welded! I have a spare positive post and washers and a clear tank on order ...so would only need to get another top section to have all the bits to make another 8) think my brother would be able to do it at work for me will have to ask him tomorrow.

Yes Jim I DiD (pardon the pun!) I don't know what has taken so long but I'm just glad it has finally been dispatched.
When I ordered it said 50 in stock so I didn't think it was a pre order at the time. It may well have been though. Bit naughty really. Oh well, lets see how long it takes to arrive now it's been dispatched......

flavour will probarbly pick up slightly as the setup beds in ...

you can also try limiting the air hole by covering with tape and pricking a smaller hole ...

if the above works for you then you can make a more permanant limit via the internal air control ...

been vaping it for a bit , seems to be bedding in now , the flavour is starting to come thro and is not so harsh and i have also uped the voltage to 3.6v , it was quite harsh to start off

i dont find the draw to airy personally but i will have a play around with it see how it effects throat hit and flavour

also wound it different this time , had 4 coils on one side and three on the other last time , but i started on the inside of the wick this time and got 4 and 4 lol

Put my did together this morning.

Must be something wrong with one of the threads on one end of the centre tube. It won't screw all the way in so leaves a gap on one end of the main body when fully assembled.

Its just one end because I have tried each end in every hole and the other side is fine.

Tried a bit of noalox too and that didn't help.

Anyone else have the same thing?

Hot spots , i get it tidy no hot spots then all ov a sudden they back , which must move a bit, and it seems to be over wicking and I'm getting a thick horrible sensation in the back of my throat like I've vaped to much quite quickly . Don't think these genesis style is for me to be honest , thinking of selling it and putting my name down for a Penelope , or try and swap for an ody if I can ,

Love my bullie so thinking may have more joy with that typ off automised setup with glass fibre wick

Have you tried it with fibreglass wick? It will not be a genesis style then, but if it works then you will have a useable atty. I was thinking of trying it just as an experiment, it would have to be a few strands of Bulli wick. It might be worth a go

Well, got my DID on Friday. Having a few teething problems with the coil at the min. I've tried 3 and 4 coils getting around 1.4-1.9 ohms but I'm getting an incredibly strong throat hit and not a lot of vapour. I've tried all the way from 2.9v-4v and it doesn't seem to make much difference. Tried messing with the coil too but again makes no difference. Has anyone else had any problems like this?
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: itsmeitis on July 11, 2012, 09:49:18 AM
from the sound of the things, i'd suspect you could be getting hot spots ... if so, then be sure the wire is closely seated to well oxidised mesh ... the rizla trick might also help.
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: nosmo on July 11, 2012, 10:02:53 AM
I have been using 5 coils right from the start and it has been fine.....a bit more resistance might help beams9.
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: beams9 on July 11, 2012, 10:37:39 AM
Thanks for that. I will try the rizla 1st. Looking closely, when it fires the top coil glows so it does look like hot spots. Does anyone know what gauge the wire that comes with it is? I've already got some .15 and .2 nichrome wire so could I use that also?

Thanks for the replies and votes of confidence. Me and the did are not seeing eye to eye at the minute. It seems to take great pleasure in randomly changing it's ohm reading without notice, and goes from full blown smoke storm to pathetic wisps of barely recognisable vapour in a matter of seconds. I am convinced I am doing something fundamentally wrong in the building process, but I cannot figure out what! The wick is fully oxidised and I'm using the wire that came with the kit with 4 coils. I've even done the rizla trick. Why oh why do you infuriate me so Mr did.
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: nosmo on July 13, 2012, 01:22:04 PM
Are you sure the wick is fully oxidised........that can cause fluctuating Ohms readings I have found.
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: bobbins53 on July 13, 2012, 01:32:01 PM
Sounds like a short tbh a couple of tip’s I picked up on another forum was to extend the rizla to cover more of the wick and go down to the bottom of the top cap, this doesn’t burn off but insulates that possible contact point and doesn’t seem to affect wicking, also ease the wick up a few mm’s when you have done your coil so it isn’t touching the bottom.

I am embarking on another mission to control the did tonight after leaving it in the cupboard yesterday so it could think about what it had done. I heated up the mesh to glowing point for about 20 secs 3 times then soaked and burnt off some juice, again 3 times. Is this how everyone else does it? It is obviously something I'm doing wrong. If at first you don't succeed....................

Gas hob bobbins, I think I may have to invest in one of those blow torches. Maybe the hob isn't consistently hot enough to create an even oxidisation layer. Hmm, science 101 anyone!

Well that's weird that's how I just did it, fag paper bit i mean.
Last time I was getting shorts, hot spots etc etc . This was the second time I have made up coil/wick..
The 1st time took 3 hours  >:(  This time with fag paper and Scotts video ( thanks Scott) took me 10 mins. ;D
Vapes great and TH good . My last wick/coil was going off .Started at 1.3 ohms ended up 1.8 ohms and clogged up.
This coil/wick comes up at 1.3 ohms at 3.4 volts mmm
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: beams9 on July 13, 2012, 10:21:13 PM
It's alive! Made a new wick and oxidised the hell out of it. No chances with this one! Made a coil with rizla paper and my god it works. No hot spots, no e1 code and no fatal throat hit. Coil is reading a little high at 1.8 but at the moment I'll take anything that fires without taking the back of my head off! Got it firing at 3.6v. Plenty of vapour, nice throat hit. Thank you all for your help. I am now going to enjoy a cold beer and a nice vape on my now working did.

Post by: martinc on July 28, 2012, 11:26:33 PM
I tried it on an unoxydized mesh believe it or not...since the threads are wound parallel and your coil is wound at an angle,no shorts possible...took like 4 minutes to setup.

I am vaping it right now,flavor is odd,throat hit is way up there,wicks well too...but the jury is still out on the vape taste though...will reserve that comment for after a day or 2,perhaps it needs some kind of break-in or the oxydizing of the mesh plays a role here,not sure.

I ended up with a way too low coil value (1.8) for my taste (2.6 to 3.0 usually)
Title: DID done it

Has anyone else converted the top bit of the did into an Orion type setup? Ie spring, washers and a nut?

I am thinking of giving that a go as the two screws do my tits in. I forever have my wire slipping out of them.
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: bobbins53 on July 29, 2012, 01:52:21 AM
I found it a bit annoying at times as well, it is very easy to spin the 2nd nut at the same time,  I watched a review of the DiD on youtube a month or so back and the guy had ordered extra brass nuts and had 4 on his centre post, which fitted pretty much perfectly. 

I have a spare set due to one of the washers being missing when I got mine and he sent me out a full set of the centre kit, so I added another to mine and any annoyance disappeared straight away. :D

Post by: Capt12B on July 29, 2012, 02:09:55 PM
I was struggling as I got my learn on with the DID setup but I think I am all over it now  ;D I took the time to actually measure and cut my mesh to 30x40mm and used the heat - water -heat - water - heat - water- burn off e juiced x 3 method for the wick and found that with a new coil if I heat it again and again with top off making slight wiggles and adjustments till I could see the entire coil (3/4 wrapps)  was heating up evenly then it was ready. Now I get the MOST satisfying vape from the DID and it makes a pleasant purculating sound as it cranks out copious plumbs of vaper. I do find that the 1st vapes of the day are harsh but solved that by just firing the DID up and letting the hot coil pull juice up into the mesh - in this way the DID is opposit to my other devices. If I ran my ody like this I would burn the ceramic cordage as its the drawing that keeps the juice flowing into the wick, but with the DID its the hot coil that pulls the juice up to the business end of the coil. I have seen many people talking about adding the 4th nut to the center post - I have to hold my middle nut with tweezers while tightening down the top one.  I kinda like the 2 nuts floating though as during the initial setup I have to make little adjustments by turning the locked floting nuts a hair to left ( then fire) then back right ( and fire) - I do this till I find a sweet spot and the ohms stay above 1.1ohms so the DID will fire on my gripper ;D

yes ... use the rizla trick to eliminate problems
also, if using a fresh battery i.e. 4+ volts, then running the battery down slightly can help.

with the brass nuts though, you can infact just wrap the wire around the threaded post as thats all that's required to complete the circuit.
then use the brass nuts to ensure the coil has no unecessary excess between the wick and contact point.

Post by: Capt12B on July 29, 2012, 11:27:54 PM
BH , if you still have a well oxidized wick in your did and still have it wired up with a 3/4 wrap there is still hope. I would suggest taking it with the top off and fire it up a good few sec the slightly adj by turning both top nuts in a bit and fire, then out and fire...again and again. These slight adjustments ( with also moving the wick away from the post ) seemed to allow me to get the wick and wire settled in and allowed me to get all the wraps heating evenly.  It's kinda hard to explain but I hope you get the jist of what I am trying to say. Playing with mine this way accomplished 2 things. 1st it got the wrap/wick settled in and even and 2nd it got the ohms to stabilize at 1.2 so it would work well with the device I was setting it up on.

I converted my did into an Orion type setup at the top. Works great.

Its my main device at the mo. The clear tanks from kit Francis are amazing too and fit with ease.

Looks fab on the chrome provari but I made my coil with .28 and even though there is 6 wraps, is still only around 1.1ohms. Mega low Res for my silver bullet then for now. (Hurry up ggts).

Never really been a fan of my sb. You seem to have to press the button on it pretty hard. Maybe there is a different spring or something I can buy for the switch?

When the SB switch becomes hard to activate or miss fires you  can usually fix it : make a fist with your left hand, raise the index finger so the 1st knuckle is raised , theN hold the SB with right hand and bang the switch onto your raised knuckle a few times. If your left handed just switch hands ;). Now this may sound strange but I learned this trick from chad the builder of he SB. It evidently adjust the inner workings of the switch mechanism and alwys did the trick for me ;D

Cool thanks, I'll give it a go.

It was like this from new. Well I guess the amount of time I've used it, it actually is new, lol.

I kept hold of it as its the only regular 3.7 volt mod I have left. Kept it as a backup of my backup of my backup :D

Jeez, the weight in an SB, this read as :

" then hold the SB with right hand and MANGLE your raised knuckle " lol

Mine fires every time but needs to be pushed in fairly far so I'll give it a try (or maim myself trying.

Yeah I agree. At least coiling a did is useful. Think someone forgot to tell the archers we have developed guns now.

Bet they go back to the Olympic village to sleep in their wigwams :P

Maybe a silly question but is it necessary to use a torch to ox the wire mesh or will a lighter work in a pinch ? The lighter would get the mesh red hot as well. I have a lpg torch at home but it doesn't fit in my ever growing rebuilding kit for work and I like to fiddle when I am at work ;D

I use the gas cooker works ok for me, there again don't know if improves carbon if you use blowtorch. I would say lighter won't get hot enough.

The mini looks amazing , love the new no tool needed fill screw which will allow easier filling - will come in handy as the mini will need more frequent filling. I think you will love it Pinkerton ;D

if any one has got a pic of a DID on the GG stealth would like to see it

whats the full spec on this, the gg stelth,  is that just the battery,   and what would the total cost of this be....?
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: itsmeitis on August 20, 2012, 08:43:22 PM
the stealth is difficult to get ... the DiD is around 79€
Title: Re: DID done it
Post by: itsmeitis on August 20, 2012, 08:49:16 PM
the Stealth is the battery holder & switch ... it is made by GG i.e. golden greek ... retail was around £85 but they havn't been available for some time now other than in classified ads sales where prices are generally considerably higher than retail.

at retail it comes without battery ... the correct battery would be an 18350 ...

the DiD is a genesis type rebuildable atomiser and is often on current retail sale come pre-order.

right,,   just watched the review on the did,   how / what stops the liquid leaking out the hole where the wick sticks out if you tip the atty upside down......?     
and does the button on the stelth switch have a lock to stop it getting pressed in your pocket....

The wick will stop the eliquid leaking out to a certain extent but if you leave it upside down then liquid will eventually escape. I wouldn't want to pocket a did.

The stealth has a lock on the switch to stop it from firing.

Ordered the short DID with a clear tank this morning.  ;) Hopefully it doesnt take too long to arrive. Looking forward to getting all set up. Will a gas hob do for oxidising or is a chef's torch a definite must?
Title: Re: DID done it

a blow torch would do it better, but gas hob should still work too.

Cheers. Pretty sure my dad has a mini blow torch at his house. Like the size plumbers use. Would that be ok to use or would it be too hot? Just dont want to go too mad ordering stuff until i get the hang of setting up the did and sure i will stick to it.
