This one nearly flew under my radar, i bought a couple of the 50W versions when they came out and really liked them they're a great little pocket mod. Looks like they kept the chassis and everything the same just upgraded the board to 80W. Available in Blue,White,Black and a fetching pink for you Roscopecotrain
Looks cool but the link says 'secure connection failed' and the home page says 'Malwarebytes has blocked a potentially malicious website.' First time that this happens, I'll dig deeper when I get back home.

Saw this over on 3fvape too, good thing is it does take 25mm atties unlike the over dual battery one they bought out. Probably wait until they stock the mod by itself though don't want or need the tank.

Been puffing away on one for the last week. I'm normally a dual coil bloke, flavour is just more intense with dual coils i find plus thicker cloudage but gotta say this thing is pretty decent in single coil mode as far as flavour goes, airflow could do with being a little more open though.
P.S if anyone sees the stubby SS drip tip it comes with for sale by itself let me know.

Well i kinda figured sod all would be done here is the latest reply from staff.
Hello, dr00g. I forgot to mention in last reply that we didn't set the default value as $20. And according to the replies, $17 is not working. There will be other problems generated.
Our low value declaration is for customers' convenience. But no matter how we set it, we cannot meet everyone's sanctification.
To bring our customers' inconvenience is the last thing we want to see. But temporarily, we cannot come up a better idea. So we still would like to suggest here that if you, including other customers, have any special request on declaration. Please create a support ticket or do live chat with us. We will arrange for you.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
So that's it folks either wait until the pound rises again against the dollar before you shop at FT or if you do shop at FT be prepared for the possibility of getting stung by HMRC and Royal Mail for £11+ on each package. Take note that even if you do take their advice and open a ticket requesting a lower declared value there is no guarantee that they will actually do it, i saw at least one person on that thread say they asked FT to mark their package at $15 and it came marked as $20.
Also either this staff member or their colleague is is lying because the staff member i spoke to in my support ticket said they do use $20 as a default value if the goods are over $20.
My advice would be if you're going to shop there while the pound is still low make the order as large as possible, it's better to pay £11 in fees on goods worth £100 than goods worth £15 right? I would still also follow their advice and make a manual request on each order too but just don't assume they will actually do it even if they say they will.
Just had ft delivery, couple of aerotank mega clones, value $17 but they had put $20 as the value on the label.... Perhaps they are using $20 as a default value for a lot of parcels?
I was told by the staff member that i opened my ticket with that they declare goods under $20 with their true value and any goods that are valued at over $20 as $20.
Either that's not true and they just declare everything as $20 or when they calculate the real value they go by the MRRP figure and not the figure they are selling the goods for which is often below the MRRP.
From what I understand from a friend who works in domestic business VAT, customs are cracking down on individuals buying from China and then selling on such as ebay for a profit. A bit like years ago when people were nipping over to the continent and buying lots of fags and booze and then coming back to sell them. Technology is cheap from China and you can order bulk on some items that come in small parcels and then sold on for a tidy profit cutting the tax man out. Apparently this is on the increase and not only is detrimental to UK businesses but by avoiding tax reduces the amount we want for the NHS and other important services we expect in this country. Harsh and sadly effects people who are buying genuinely for their own use but can understand why they are doing it.
I guess that FT declaring everything as replacement electronic parts also doesn't help as that's precisely the kind of thing you can order in bulk in small packages.
