Just received it this morning.
New to BB vaping, I have only two bridges/tanks. The Vapesnail and this one.
Although the Vapesnail is quite good (no leaking on mine), this VWM is even better to me for now on!

As Gigirat67 said:
- No o-rings, no leaking.
- Threadings are perfect.
- Logo is there. (for those who like that)

I will add:
- Unlike the Vapesnail, which can be tricky to connect properly sometimes in the Bantam Box and gives a not so precise ohm reading, this one connects every time and the ohm reading seems to be accurate.
EDIT: No I was too optimistic, the ohm reading is also not so accurate. Might be a Bantam issue, maybe. The connection is better, though.

- Really easy and straightforward to build. Very little amount of cotton needed.

- The coil can be placed really high in the chamber, for additionnal hit.

- Smooth and silent aiflow, with the 1.5 insert.

- Icing on the cake, with it, the SXK Unit Tank that comes with the Bantam Box V2 can be filled with 6ml of juice, nice! (filled to the very top. I checked it twice)

So far, so good.

A question for you, Gigirat67.

With your Dope (!!!), do you use a boro tank?

If yes, have you measured how many ml juice to fill to the top?

Hi laxal
I use it with a boro but I haven’t measured the capacity… I’d say it’s around 5ml à a bit more, I can measure tonight if this information is important to you.

It's not that important! =)

Just to compare with the SXK Unit Tank.

If it doesn't bother you too much, it would be interesting to know!

Just did a quick measurement with a old syringe from the days I was taking diy seriously and it’s not the most accurate because the markings are pretty worn out but it does not reach the 6 ml mark. 5.2 ? 5.4? Hard to tell for sure :-/

Merci, mon vieux !

A bit less juice than in the Unit Tank, then.

Yep. Never considered these unit tanks. Are they any good? I mean what is the selling point vs. boro ?

My pleasure :-?

My first unit tank is coming together with bxr eventually and this rba.
I also wanted to check it out is there any benefit using them compared to regular boro.
I used only regular boro tanks till now.
Here's my 2 cents why unit tank can be appealing for some.

Unit tank is couple grams lighter :)

If you like saturated and juicy vape with smaller amount of cotton without the rba leaking on you every time you refill it unit tank would probably be a better choice because less air will be pushed inside the tank when you plug it compared to the regular boro tank.

Since it's plastic it has less chance to break.

As you noticed unit tank also has a bit higher liquid capacity.

I also see some possible flaws just by looking at it.
The plug thingy since it's attached to the front of the tank, the whole thing can pop out when you're trying to open it up to refill the tank.

Transparent silicone o-rings will become piss yellow after 2-3 weeks probably.

It's made from acrylic, so tank crackers is a no go probably.

Sounds like a fair assessment
Looking forward to hear from you how it goes once you have it in hand.
