    Default smallest and best mod for newb?

    I just moved up from ego twist to vamo v5 and now looking at getting a smaller mod for at work. I've been using my vamo in 350 mode but its too big and heavy to toss in my pocket and walk around my warehouse. What would be a smaller mod looking at mechanical for under $50. Perferably from fasttech as I have store credit I need to use... Thanks for any insight!

    The above pic is of a Segelei-Ovale V8. The link to FastTech is for the V6 model. Three step variable voltage. Uses two 18350 batteries which will easily last you all day. Rubberized gripper-style box mod that is pocketfriendly and light in weight. Under $30.

    Shorter and lighter than a Vamo in 18350? Mech mod?

    Bad's suggestion, while not exactly meeting the criteria for "big", certainly does meet the "heavy", or lack of heavy, criteria. The Ovale is mostly plastic, so you're really only carrying the weight of two batteries. With a short/fat atty, a good compromise with plenty of power reserve. Trade off.

    A mech in 18350 will be a little shorter, perhaps a little lighter than the Vamo, but at the cost of no voltage control. Toss in a Kick, and you gain nothing. Any Caravela, Chi you or Ba gua 18350/18500 clone will suffice and available from FT. Still, trade offs.

    An 18350 Hybrid may be the smallest and lightest... but are you a coil winder? Trade off.

    Perhaps a 14500 mech or APV? But then, enough battery, or will you be carrying spares in another pocket? Trade off.

    An automatic, large capacity 18350 battery, semi-hybrid device? Perhaps.

    Trade offs everywhere you look 'eh? Narrow it down to the most critical... and choose.

    The Vamo is kind of big. I have heard that the above device has some issues with 510 connections. If you are gonna get a box mod, you should go for the MVP 2. It has a smaller cousin, the iTaste Vv/VW 3, which has all of the same features. Both are available on Fasttech.

    Good choices both... the former isn't exactly light, the latter isn't exactly short... being the same height as the MVP. Saying that, the 3.0 is a wonderful choice for just about any vapist to own... they are so darn handy.

    Only the MVP1 is available from FT... and you can get an MVP2 from C2C for the same price... so that rules out the FT credit for a MVP2.

    Me? Already owning both models of MVP and knowing there usefulness, I'd spend the money at C2C for the MVP2 and use the FT credit for a few good RBA clones... but hey, that's just me.

    More trade offs? Sure... but what isn't?

    Thanks for the input Batitude, if I got a box style mod I think I would want one of the bottom feeder ones. Anyone make a affordable one by chance? I can keep batteries at my desk that is not a problem. The box mod would help I think though, keeping my vamo in my front pocket looks like a got a chubby swaying while I walk...lol

    I think I will go with the Itaste vv/vw 3, is it similar size to a ego twist? I just ordered the X1, X8, Rocket, & eternity rabs from fasttech, so I hope I'm good for a awhile.

    Does fasttech or anywhere else sell any vmod or reo bottom feeder clones that are decent?

    Try the Kamry K101 from fasttech. In 350 mode, its about half the size of the Vamo in 350 mode. Its got airholes for the threaded device so you can flush mount, has plenty of air holes for battery venting, telescopes so you can go 650 if you want at the house, has a beefy little spring in there for the battery, and imo just looks nice. Quick Edit - It's also got reverse threading to turn the button off, which was a must for me. I did a bit of researching before picking this up as it was my first mech mod, and I dig it. 24$ at fasttech, but I got mine from myvaporstore for 33$.

    VMod is $80 - 90. Sign up for the Vapage email newsletter; frequent coupon codes give up to 50% off. I got 40% off of mine and used the money saved to get a custom sleeve (faux wood grain). I use an AW 18650 imr 2000mah battery that typically lasts nearly 2 days. 9 ml juice bottle.
