    Default Preferences on Hardware

    Hey All!

    Wanted to get a feel for hardware brands or the type of hardware that people might use. With a lot of choices out there I wanted to see if there was a couple brands that stood out above the rest and if they did why? I know that it is mostly a matter of personal preference and if it is, that's fine as well. Thanks for any light you guys will shed on this, and thanks for all of you who support us!

    If you are alright with manufacturers that clone...

    HCigar has been the best IMO in this department.

    Kurrpt, which ones in that line do you use? Is it anything from their EVO line or maybe the mechanical line? Just curious to see what everyone prefers and what works for them, since I don't vape I want to get other's viewpoints. Thanks!

    I've been using the single xl flanged 3ohm, 3 hole cartos from smoktek in a couple different tanks. I like them because they vape cool enough so that I rarely get a burnt taste and the three holes allow the thicker juice (Boba's) to saturate the wicking material. I've tried a bunch of the clearomizers, nova's, protanks etc and for me they all either flood or dry out and burn rather quickly. I'm a little over a week since my last analog so I'm vaping pretty heavily. It wasn't until I found this combo (on my vamo) that I was confident enough in the equipment to drop the analogs.

    It's really a tough question you ask here since ultimately it will all be about preference. As far as battery devices go, anything will work, the defining factor is what sort of atomizer you put on top (whether it be carto, atty, clearo, RBA, etc) since that is the piece that ultimately gives you your desired flavor/vapor/throat hit performance.

    Personally, I use a wide variety of gear and switch it up frequently depending on what I'm vaping and what specific experience I'm looking for. I find that some juices taste better in different types of toppers, or in the case of RBAs with different types of materials used. There is no one single topper that gives optimal overall performance (to my taste) for every juice I vape. Some work better with thicker juices and some better with thinner juices, some better with fruit or tobacco or bakery flavors than others

    Probably not the answer you're looking for, but it's the most honest one I can give since everything about vaping is so subjective


    For my best results with AVE juices, specifically, my go-to toppers are (in no particular order) the Rose from Eden Mods, Immortalizer, GG attys, Ihybrids and the good old-fashioned Cisco spec atty
    Last analog: 2-23-2011

    Current Gear: Darwin, SS GGTS #882, Ωpus-D, iHy Illuminati & Pure, Precise ELA, Simplicity 350Ti, Black Copper Stingray #459

    Woot, 'nother Reo/AVE user. Boba's in the Reo Grand w/ RM2 on top. Micro coil, 28ga at 1.3 ohms, cotton ball wick. Best setup for me, although tastes good in just about anything I put it in (although a giant clearo coil clogger, but to be expected).

    I use flanged 3.0 ohm xl Smoktek cartos with two holes in a Phiniac carto tank with a Provari. If I were vaping Bobas or GJ I would get the 3 holes.

    Using Hype, I usually get three weeks out of a carto. Thicker and darker juices usually a little less.

    Even using a Protank with the bottom fed coil, the flavor of my juices is muted when compared to the carto tank setup above.
