This unit is for knowledgeable, veteran users only. Buyers understand and agree to the terms listed.
The ERA and Hornet have been discontinued from Budz. Get one of these excellent rebuildables now before they are gone!
Managed to locate a few of the SS BF Hornets. Should be available by May 15th.
Hornet top feed torch, Bottom feed stainless, Top feed stainless and Bottom feed torch.
The ERA is a top drip (TF) or bottom fed (BF) rebuildable atomizer and is proudly made in the Philippines by BudzWorkz.
Aside from the O-ring and the postive terminal insulator, it is made of Stainless Steel for safe vaping. No brass or plated metal is used.
Included in the package are: - 1 fully assembled ERA or HORNET - 1 allen wrench - 2 feet long Kanthal wire - 2 feet long Silica wick.
Units are without warranty, refund, or exchange.
No technical assistance of any kind can be provided by Indy Vapor Shop. Numerous video tutorials exist via the Electronic Cigarette Forum and at Youtube.com
Both v1.5 of the ERA and Hornet have a shorter connector to fit the Reo mods, and the Hornet has a topcap that will fit the Reo Mini.
Units are threaded for the model 510 and there is absolutely no guarantee from IVS that the unit will fit any specific product or power source. Please do your research to make sure the unit will work on your unit.
The HORNET is taller than the ERA. Height of the ERA is 21mm while the HORNET is 24mm.
The HORNET on the left has a smaller diameter compared to the ERA. The ERA's diameter is 15mm while the HORNET is 13mm.
The Hornet Top Drip (TF) is a great fit with eGo style batteries.
The interior of the HORNET (Left) is pretty much the same as the ERA (Right). Same procedure in building the wire and wick.

Please note very carefully that rebuildable atomizer coils and wicks have known risks.Rebuildables are for experts, not average or beginner vapers with no multimeter or knowledge of how to use a meter, or when a meter must be used, or how electronic devices work. If the coils are not built or tested correctly this can irreparably damage your devices i.e. Mods, Batteries Tanks etc. and may also cause personal injury. These materials cannot safely be used by the inexperienced or those without basic knowledge of electronics.
This is because:
A rebuildable coil/wick MUST be tested carefully with a meter before it is used.
If it is not tested it may damage the device it is used on.
Faulty wicks/coils WILL blow electronic devices.
New coil/wick units must be tested and then used first on a strong basic electrical APV such as a Silver Bullet, that will not be destroyed by a short circuit.
No new coil/wick assembly should be used on an electronic device until known to be safe.
These items destroy electronic devices if faulty.
These items have inherent risks and may go faulty at any time even if they were originally in good working order. The owner bears the cost of equipment damaged as a result.
Make sure that your battery is either removed from your mod, or your mod is adequately locked when you are building your coils.
Indy Vapor Shop will bear no responsibility or liability for any damage to any devices used or any injury to persons using these devices.

To all the bottom-fed, ERA-equipped Indy Vapor Shop folks, I wanted to pass along a very simple to recreate coil and wick design that should minimize the use of silica wick while providing a very effective wicking setup. I'm using a Variable-Voltage REO Grand so I'm going with at least a 6/5 wrapped coil. If you're using a 3.7V device then a 4/3 coil might make more sence from a resistance standpoint with the OEM 32AWG wire. Also 6/5 means that there are 6 wraps to the coil when viewed from the top but only 5 wraps when viewed from the bottom. I am using 32AWG Kanthal A-1 wire and 3mm braided silica wick. A doubled up piece of the OEM 2mm silica wick may work just as well but I had none to try. I'm quite certain that Uncle Mike will have this 3mm wick available in short-order. For the 3.7V folks, 28AWG or 30AWG being less resistive may make doing more wraps hit a 1.5Ù-1.8Ù target much easier. The current hypothesis is that more wraps equate to more flavor and thicker vapor. The 32AWG makes my 6/5 hit about 2.0Ù that I run at about 4.25V-4.5V. I use a butane lighter to burn the Kanthal wire prior to wrapping the coil that will turn the wire orange and in doing so burns off any manufacturing contaminants. After wrapping the silica loop with the wire, I use a small chef's butane torch like those used to brown creme brulee to lightly heat/oxidize the entire assembly. These chef torches are much hotter than a Bic lighter so don't overdo it or you'll scorch the wick or melt the wire. So here's the build: I wrap a very simply 6/5 coil making sure to wrap in such a manner as to keep the lead at the closed-end of the fold on the bottom while keeping the lead at the open-end of the coil on top. I reference my top and bottom as I'm facing the coil and the wick-n-coil assembly is between me and the connection posts. This will force the installed coil down onto the under passing wick and keeps it properly aligned with the cap's air hole. I do not insert a pin, allen wrench or other similar spacer to provide a lot of wiggle room. However, I don't CRANK DOWN on my wraps either. Tight but not too tight; don’t cut into the strand and you'll be fine. You'll see better in the 2nd & 3rd images.
