Who was at fault? Shawn or the messenger? We’ll never know, but the story goes that Shawn painted the boxes wrong. It was supposed to be like a camo, but “Shawn can’t read”. 🙂
This one has a base coat of the Mil-Spec Green with gray splats. It was supposed to also have black splats, but… again… “Shawn can’t read”.
The Billet Box, finished in Mil Spec Green Cerakote, then splattered with a creamy color and… wait, was there something missing… *scratch head* Some master cerakoter spray people with cool hats (not naming any names…) sometimes find it too boring to double check instructions…

Shawn Can’t Read SS was 1st sold on 04/23/2022. This one came with White G10 panels and an SS button.
As far as I know, this one was made once (by mistake) and will not be made again.
The price of a Rev 4 Billet Box is set by the stock button. There are occasionally special edition boxes that cost more, but the main pricing scheme is below.

Billet Box Vapor drops the Billet Box on Saturdays.
Machined from 6061 T6 Aluminum, In-house Cerakoted. The Billet Box is the first E-Vaporizer to incorporate massive battery power, a huge 5.5ml E-fluid tank, and all electronics internalized into a beautifully handcrafted mod. The end result is a dependable, sleek, solid, obscenely well-crafted USA-made vaporizer that needs very little attention to maintain.

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.
