Billet Box Rev 4c

The Billet Box Rev 4c is the current Billet Box. There is not much that has changed since 2016 with the release of the Rev 4a and the difference between the Rev 4b and 4c is simply the change from anodizing to "in house" Cerakoting.  

The Billet Box is the first mod to incorporate massive battery power, a huge 5.5ml tank, and all electronics internalized into one dead sexy little unit. The end result is a dependable, sleek , solid, obscenely well crafted USA made device that needs very little attention to maintain.  

The Billet Box Rev 4c is a 60W Billet Box with a 5.5ml Boro Tank and comes with a Nord Coil Adapter and replacement O-Rings. 

The Billet Box requires (not included) a single 18650 IMR Cell, Non-Protected, battery. A Nord coil or any other adapter, coil or RBA system for the Billet Box, and any 510 drip tip. 

Billet Box History

The Billet Box has evolved throughout the years and in 2021, we are on Billet Box Rev 4c currently.

Billet Box Rev 1


After a year of prototyping that started in 2011, The Billet Box Prototype was Introduced on December 8th, 2012. You can read more and follow along in this ECF thread by Doug Dino himself,

Billet Box Rev 2

Rev 2 was introduced in June 2013 and was produced with new Haus CNC Machine (dubbed “Ruby”) and the 6.5ml Delrin-Faced Tank Introduced.

Billet Box Rev 3

The Billet Box Rev 3 was Introduced in September 2013. The changes featured and upgraded transistor-activated switch and a media-blasted aluminum body.

Billet Box Rev 3a

In May 2014, the Billet Box Rev 3a was introduced.

"After months of testing and re-tooling, our first production anodized run was a success, Rev 3.a has a bead blasted, bright dipped anodized surface with a few advantages to our prior raw polished aluminum BB."

June 2014, anodized colors were announced, starting with orange. Prior to this, the Billet Box was raw aluminum color.

"Between our clear anodized batches we are going to start doing runs of Bright Dip Colored Billet Boxes!!!"

As far as I can tell, this is the order that colors were launched:

  • Clear – original
  • Kurbis (Orange) – Jun 14, 2014
  • Rat (Black) – Jul 5, 2014
  • RPG (Royal Purple Grey) – Jul 19, 2014
  • Fawkes (Red) – Aug 1, 2014
  • Unicorn Poo (Purple/Pink) – Sep 5, 2014
  • RNB (Royal Navy Blue) & TMNBB (Green) Released Same day – Sep 13, 2014

I was not able to confirm when DoberNugget, or BX was released.


At some point after the release of the 3a Billet Box, I am not sure if it was before or after the new colors, buttons in different materials started to be sold.


The 1st “Boro Tank” was launched in November 2014.

Billet Box Rev 4a 40w

This is the beginning of the redesigned Billet Box that we still enjoy today!


In March of 2016, Billet Box announced the redesign from the Rev 3 Billet Box to the Rev 4a.

"After months of prototyping, months testing, followed by months of retooling, the Billet Box Rev.4 is about ready to go and play in the wild."

This update changed the doors from the sliding door to the magnetic doors, made from G10 and most importantly, introduced the DNA chip to the Billet Box, starting with the DNA 40. The small batteries were replaced with a single 18650 and the Boro tank was redesigned. 

Billet Box Rev 4a 25w

When the Billet Box Rev4a was announced, Billet Box announced that they would sell a DNA 40 and DNA 25 model at different price points. They did not offer the DNA 25 initially but did have a few runs available before they decided to stick with the DNA 40 and eventually went to the DNA 40 Big Screen.

Billet Box Rev 4c - The Cerakote Era Begins


The end of anodizing of Billet Boxes was announced on the Facebook page on November 6th, 2020. On 12/31/2020 and the 1st Rev 4c 60 models were sold by Billet Box, the two new colors in their new Cerakote finishes were the Blanca and Chameleon. 


Nord Adapter - The Billet Box Nord Adapter started to ship with new Billet Box models instead of the OCC adapter on 1/23/2021. The Burninator was retrofitted for the boxes.
