This TVL is much like, in performance and function, a SMPL. Where the switch on a SMPL can unscrew with a coin, the switch on this TVL can recess too far and become semi difficult to unscrew. Also it is a 24.6mm mod which can make it difficult to pair/hybrid with a suitable atty. Overall, it's a nice Mechanical and I like it much!


Paired with a Kayfun Mini V3 Plus and SKU 9645442

We are not all flushness maniacs.

"stepped" setups can be very nice looking too.

That plain tube look is so boring....how many pics have i seen with a tube mod and a short atty on top with flat topcap ? OK it looks nice (sometimes) but what is the interest of duplicating it endlessly ?? This is is so lame.

I am a collector.What is the appeal of having 100 simple plain tubes ?? Where is creativity,imagination ??
Well,i have an answer : it's lost in conformism.Extreme conformism.It's not even good taste,or love of minimalism.
Just conformism.

It's way more creative to mix and match intricate shapes and succeeding in making a pretty object.It's harder to succeed,and you will fail sometimes,but when you do succeed,you will be proud of yourself and you will never be bored of the shapes.

But stacking tubes,wtf ?? Ok,you will do a nice looking setup easily,and you will have instant satisfaction as well.Your pictures will be "liked" by a lot of people,because "good taste "minimalism" and all that kind of stereotypes.But in fact,i know for real that 99 % of the people who like that do not even have the knowledge of what minimalism really is.And it just ends as a boring object.

I"m saying it because i acted like that in the beginning as well....and my collection looked pretty boring.Conclusion :the lesson is : think out of the box,be creative,follow your instinct...and never listen to what forum dumbasses says.

(and kudos to you fox !! )

We are not all flushness maniacs, that's true. =)
But need to add, I've been loving the SMPLs because of the simplicity of use and because it's short. Yep, nothing exciting there, but could say: the simplicity of look did some good too when you were seeing yourself surrounded with all the superficial surplus' wherever you looked.
I don't really need anything more like vape-gear, so just dropping some orders from time to time to some more interesting tubes (too). And happy when can do some little shortening on the switch end ;)

@Fox: no difficulties to unscrew these switches, just hold the tube vertically, put one finger under the switch (with the right tension you'll feel a little play) and use the gravity. It will come easily. (true, you can't go fast with it)

That bulging tank makes it look very well balanced. :)

Yeah, I kind of got the feel of the process of unscrewing the switch. I just wanted to point it out for others. :-)

Believe it or not, I partially bought the TVL to go with the bubble glasses I have on various tanks. I guess it worked out. :-)

Foxvape, have you managed to take the switch apart since?
I just can't. The button turns around together with the nut. Tried to take out the delrin part, not sure if I screwed it in or out. That's all the achievement for the moment. Otherwise it's a nice chunk of metal. ;)
