Zero Modz Clone (Carlos Creations Clone)
The authentic Zero box mod is a DNA30 powered collection of custom made and meticulously hand crafted mods from Malaysian modder Carlos Creation. This masterful creation has become an underground sensation within the world high-end mod collectors, and is not available for purchase via online or brick and mortar vape shops. There is an active wait list of nearly 500 interested buyers who are eagerly hoping to purchase this custom handmade mod, which can only be accessed by joining a private Facebook group which currently has almost 1,700 members. Access to the private group is by approval only.
These custom DNA 30 box mods feature stainless steel outer frames, with a wooden interior that holds the single 18650 battery, and removable/interchangeable outer body sleeves. The interchangeable body sleeves are crafted in an assortment of metals and finishes from stainless steel, to anodized aluminum, to brushed and force patina brass.
One of the more intriguing aspects of this unique box mod is the key used to lock/unlock the 18650 battery in place, which is cleverly stored in a craved out key holder on the wooden interior of the mod.
These custom creations are produced in batches of 15-20 mods at a time, and costs $400 plus shipping. Included in the purchase is the main Zero DNA30 device, and one of each sleeve in brushed stainless steel, and a sandblasted finish. Additional sleeves can be purchased, and cost between $40-150 USD depending on the finish.
The Zero Clone
For those of you who find the $400 price tag, and extremely long wait for the possibility of owning one of these custom made creations to be out of your reach, China has answered you once again. A 1:1 clone of the Zero modz DNA30 is currently in production, and is being made by Guangzhou Yosen Electronic Technology Co., LTD.
At present, Yosen has completed their ZERO Modz clone samples with brushed, and black smooth finished sleeves. The official date of the clones release to the US market for retail sale has yet to be announced. There are plans to release brass, and copper finish sleeves for the Zero Modz clone in the future. Based on wholesale pricing for the Zero Modz DNA 30 clone, I expect retail pricing to be between $175-200 USD. The DNA 30 chip being used within the clone is also made by Yosen Electronic. I am expecting a sample of the Zero Modz clone for the purpose of review from Yosen Electronic to ship out to me shortly, so stayed tuned for the review. And a special thanks to ECF member Fa-Q for giving me the lead on this clone. 😀
