A Day With My Billet Box Rev 4B DNA60!
I’ve heard of the Billet Box many months ago, but stayed away due to the DNA40. I always thought of the DNA40 chip as outdated and underpowered for my vaping style. Then, they came out with the Billet Box Rev 4B with DNA60, and I was truly interested.
That was, until I found out the price!
Getting it first hand was going to be almost impossible for me, largely because of the time zone differences which meant I have to be on my laptop in the wee hours of the morning.
So my options were to get it from flippers or used, from the various Facebook groups. Many people were willing to let go of their DNA40 Billet Box, but very few with the Billet Box Rev 4B DNA60. I saw a few but didn’t want to pay for all the extras that I didn’t care for.
Maybe it was my luck, when I saw a listing for a brand new Billet Box Rev 4B Rat Black, with a gorgeous StingProd stabwood panel, the Excocet, Mini RBA Bridge, and a lot more.
I knew it was now or never, and took the plunge. It set me back $800 (keep in mind the Rev 4 was new) and the stabwood panels themselves cost more than $200. I did have some buyer’s remorse after making the payment, but it was done and paid for.
However, it arrived by FedEx within 3 days, and the moment I opened the box I was in love. Still, I was a “BB newbie” and had to understand how to actually make this thing work.
I went with the Mini RBA Bridge (is that what it’s called?) since I was already familiar building and wicking with the Kanger Subtank Mini. It took me a while to figure out how to do it, but I managed to get a good clapton coil build in there, and filled up the Boro tank.
Everything went smoothly. I always assumed that the vape will be identical to an actual Subtank Mini or Toptank. I was wrong. The airflow is most certainly different with the Mini RBA inside the Billet Box.
I had also ordered a Steamtuners Insider, and tried fitting it into my spare white Boro tank. It arrived on the same day as the rest of the package. However, I decided to try it out later, and enjoy the vape from my Mini RBA bridge today.
Next, I had to figure out how to remove the button and replace it with the gorgeous stabwood matching button. This video helped me understand very quickly how to do it.
So about 4 hours after receiving by Billet Box Rev 4B, I was sitting comfy and enjoying my vape with the stab panels and button.
Was this Billet Box Rev 4B package too expensive? Probably.
If you want to get a Billet Box you can try getting it direct from the website when they open sales.
The main reason I got this package was the stabwood panels. I absolutely love it, and I’m pretty sure I would never be able to find it if I let it slip past me.
I still have the Excocet and Insider to try. I’m starting to understand the allure of the Billet Box. I’m also starting to understand the enormous amount of money I can still spend on leather cases, driptips, panels and bridges.
Let’s take it slow and easy for now!
