Advanced Vape Supply is following up their Molecule pen with an embedded quartz bucket design. With rapid heat-up, will we finally have an atomizer that works just like a nail? AVS is planning a matching mod and bubbler as well.
AVS' approach is to use e-cig wire, hex-core clapton, with no wick or rod - unaware of similar products, except the subsequently released TRVP. Of course, it's a simple idea. Been vaping this way for years, DIY. The Molecule works as well as any DIY effort. Learned a lot wrapping flattened coils for it and now prefer them.
The stainless steel crucible appears to be new, hope it ships with one when they're available. AVS appropriately noted that encapsulated heaters are not new. It's too bad they didn't show the final version in the video.
From Brent on AVS' subreddit: "Right now we're entering production and wrapping up the finishing touches on the mod!"
AVS is certainly hyping the m22 with their reveals and sneak peeks. They're aware of the interest and aren't downplaying expectations at all. Hopefully, that's a good sign. The beta version encapsulated coil and SS crucible appeared to work very well, so it's reasonable to expect that the final version with SiC crucible will be even better.
