It only lights up our patio and doesn't seem to get triggered by the cats.

Looks like it has a decent grade of solar cells in it with plenty of active area.

Plus 3.7v battery and decent COB LED's. I just hope it proves to be as fully waterproof as it says it is.

70/30 or 80/20 are both best for me. RDAs can be a lot more work but I just buy pre-made coils rather than making my own. Get a good 3-4 weeks from a set of coils and just re-wick the cotton 1-2 times a week to keep the flavour up. It can be a pain dripping though as you get about 7-8 hits usually before having to drip again, but the flavour and clouds are really good.

The TFV8 does have a re-buidable deck(RBA) in the box, I've yet to try it.

Still have the re-buildable in the two I have. Never fiddled with it. At some point I'll grab a drip tank just to try it. Obviously it has the cons you've listed but don't think it'd bother me for home use.

Got 6x30ml 80/20 today for 15. Think I'll probably go back again as they're all dirt cheap because of the new restrictions that are incoming. Seen a 220w alien mod for 30 with the baby beast tank included. So around 40 if you need the batteries too. Was so tempted to pick up just the mod for 30.

Re: Your favourite 'gadgets' - NOT phones :)

Given up my Nespresso because the pods are just too expensive, and the lack of real choice as only 1 flavour was strong enough for what I wanted. So invested in an ESAM4200 (Magnifica) from DeLonghi (210) - Bean to cup. Makes a far better cup of coffee and cheaper too. And more choice of coffee style as well.

It's not one of those newer looking ones with screen menus etc, it's rather clunky and loud maker but for price it is one of the best ones for making actual decent coffee the way you want it, rather than using preset options which is what I didn't want.

The coffee from Nespresso wasn't too bad apart than the cups were too small, I was getting bored with just the same cup every day. I really regret spending the amount I have on the pods over 3-4 years. I now feel ripped off compared to buying beans. (1kg beans for 11 for Lavazza an estimated saving of around 3:1 compared to pods).

Enjoying my Seguro S3 Android TV box running Kodi, so small and looks like a quality piece of kit compared to other devices.

I have one of those and mouse equivalent.

There's cheaper options for non gaming, non extensive use needs from different manufactures and doesn't need to be mechanical keyboards at all. If you haven't tried them ofc. The LED strip is probably cheaper though.
