On January 22nd, 2022 a Special Edition Betty White Billet Box was released. The release was a bit controversial as those that were refreshing the Billet Box website 30+ minutes before the drop were rewarded with an unannounced special drop. The Betty White boxes hit the site just before 9 am CST (The normal drop was at 9:30 CST). The Betty White box cost was $349 and there were only 22 hand-numbered units sold. They were all Lab Rat white.
I find it fitting to start this year’s batch drops off with this very special one. I don’t think much needs to be said, here. We will miss her humor and candor.

General Billet Box Info
The Billet Box is roughly the size & shape of a pack of cigarettes. It has a completely enclosed battery, chip, screen, tank, and atomizer. Billet Boxes are very customizable and there are dozens of modders that create all sorts of great addons from panels to colored Boros. They are relatively Hassle-Free and have gotten better over the years.
Billet Box was started in 2011 and saw tons of changes from that point until 2016. In 2016, there were quite a few changes including going from Rev3 to Rev4 and going from the DNA 40 chip to the DNA 60 chip. There have been very few changes since then and I can only assume this has to do with government regulations pending. I am sure that is frustrating to see with China not caring about the US Government.
Colors were introduced in 2014 with Rev.3a as well as occasional button changes. Prior to this, they were all the color of raw aluminum.
In 2016, they went away with the cover that slid up with the ball bearing to a magnet-based panel.
The Billet Box logo changed in 2018 and they started printing the logo on the body under the fire button panel at that point. Prior years, at least 2016 and 2017, the logo and year were printed inside of the panels. They also started using a presentation box with the new logo to ship the devices in.
