This is a serious, but not serious review of the Das Terror Bunny.
It works great
Made by a true craftsman
Das Terror Bunny
The Das Terror Bunny Billet Box is a special Billet Box made of 464 Naval Brass.
I wasn’t going to post this one into the database, but since there are actually 2 of them instead of being a 1 off, I figured I might as well. This also gives me a chance to tell the story of it’s inception.
It was early in the afternoon in September 2020 and I had just started my work day when I got a phone call. There was a pause, almost like a telemarketer, and I didn’t know the number and almost hung up. All of a sudden, some dude asked for me and I said, “This is Chris”. He went on to explain that he was Doug Dino and that he’s heard that I was someone he should have a conversation with. To be honest, I thought he was full of shit and someone was pranking me. Well, we talked for a good amount of time and the rest is history. Yes, it was DD, not a prank.
In one of the 1st few conversations, I mentioned that I was considering getting someone (Jeff Coutu) to do a custom Cerakote job for me and explained what I was thinking. It was something like this below.
Well, this is when I 1st learned that Billet Box was working towards going to Cerakote from anodized aluminum. I also learned why the Franken Boxes were being made that day. He mentioned to me that they were going to have to go to Cerakote and that “Maybe” he could pull something like this off for me one day. I was obviously super excited to hear this offer.
Well, DD works really hard and doesn’t have much free time, but he toyed with some things for a while, but was never happy with the attempts. He shared a couple with me, but not all that he tried.
Sometime in the Fall of 2021, he texted me and said he was scrapping that idea but he wanted to do something special. He sent me videos and photos over the next couple of months of the progress. Then he stopped sharing the progress, but I kept hearing about the special things he was working on for it and it sure was worth the wait!
On April 1st, 2022, I received the Das Terror Bunny!
There were TWODas Terror Bunny Brass Billet Boxes made. One of me, Chris, and one for Doug Dino himself.
The Brass body is made from a solid piece of 464 Naval Brass.
The words “Rabbit Hole” is inlayed on the left side of the body in Mother of Pearl shell.
Billet Box Info is inlayed on the right side of the body in Abalone shell.
The panels are curved carbon fiber with a brass emblem inlayed into it and inlayed into the emblem is the Billet Box Info Bunny aka “Das Terror Bunny”.
Instead of “Hand and Robot made in the USA”, the inside of the panel says, “Dino and Robot Made in the USA”
On the bottom right of the front, DD hand engraved “Das Terror Bunny, Doug Dino 2022”.
If you notice, it came with a SS button. This is because he knows that the SS button is my favorite stock BBV button. I have since changed it out to a brass button.
There are so many details in this special Billet Box that I can’t name them all. It’s truly a work of art and I am proud to own it.

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.
