Mosquito™ vs. Mosquito™ Magnum, which one should I get?
The Mosquito™ Magnum has the same high temperature performance, small form factor, and light weight as the standard Mosquito™ Hotend, but offers a much higher volumetric flow rate of melted plastic. If you routinely print with nozzle sizes of 0.6 mm or greater, we highly recommend the Mosquito™ Magnum for its higher flow rates. If you use nozzles smaller than 0.4 mm, the standard Mosquito™ will suffice to meet or exceed all of your flow rate needs.
Will I lose any functionality switching to a Mosquito™ Hotend?
Not at all! But you will gain functionality in the One-Handed Nozzle Change™ and the long-term durability of the Mosquito™ Hotend.
