    I started and I'm still with Blu Premium 100, no problems but, have now also started refilling my Blu carts with Johnson Creek Smoke Juice. Who knows what's next? This will be a journey for me and where vaping takes me, that's where Ill be. The main thing is to not smoke analogs!

    As you've no doubt found....or soon will.....the Blu carts will only last for 2-3 refills, then they're fried....
    That's why Blu says they're "not intended to be refilled...."
    I use Boge 510 blank carts and top them off as soon as I notice a change in taste....I can get 8-10 refills out of each..
    At ~$1 a pop I find they do me well....when I'm out and about....
    At home....it's eGo-c Twists and Protanks!!
    Seems we think alike, though, on Johnson Creek....Tennessee Cured (100%VG, 24mg/ml) is my ADV!!!

    I'm new to blu & I bought the Joye 306 carts. Not sure how many times you can fill them but they do fit on the batteries great & in the PCC so I'm happy. They hold quit a bit of juice but not sure how much since I have needle tips on my bottles & don't measure. They seem to last quite a long time. I just topped one off and it was too much so they hold more juice than I thought.

    I tried to use them but the key for me was regulated voltage.With a Blu, as the battery gets weaker throughout the course of a couple of hours, the vapor gets weaker and weaker. I was charging those 808 batteries every couple of hours and the only hits that were satisfying were the first one or two on a fully charged battery.

    Regulated voltage eliminates that and gives a vape thats more consistently like a cigarette. Ego Twists,Vision Spinners, the Volt V2, Provari and other variable voltage/wattage mods all offer regulated voltage as well.

    Looking into Halo right now. I like the fact that it is made in the US. Not sure if I should go with the G2 or Triton first. There is a variable battery available as well. I'm also a little confused about coils I understand the basics of Ohm resistance but, not sure about which combination of battery, variable or otherwise, and coil would produce the best vapor.

    I used the disposable ones when I first discovered vaping and while it did not satisfy me enough to quit smoking, I could see the potential. I found this board and read, read, read. Ordered a K-GO, (no VV kgo's back then), and when it arrived Brent kindly walked me through setting it up and I took my first hit and haven't had a cig since. That was over a year ago, at least.
    I feel bad for people who see the Blu commercials, try them, and then go back to smoking, not knowing that if it doesn't have enough "kick" for you there are other options.
    Since then I've moved on to various VV models.....and now I am venturing into DIY! wheee!

    I owe a debt of gratitude to this board

    Jag - have you looked at the KGO VV that goes from 3 -6? The new and improved one is lovely - long battery life, works with 510 cartomizers, clearomizers, everything - and it is very user friendly. That was what I went to from the Blu. (although at the time it was not VV).

    I don't know anything about the Halo, so I can't comment, but boy do I love my 11000 MAH Kgo. I know the hardcore mod people may look "down" on them, but they are perfect for me. Plus they are small enough that I can wear them on a lanyard and wear them to work

    Thanks Shy One, I haven't made up my mind yet, so I will research into your suggestion. There are so many choices out there as you already know. I really appreciate your input!

    Oh my, I know....it can be overwhelming! But you will get lots of great advice here and just remember to think about what will work best for YOU

    I also tried the Spinner but it only goes to 4 - hence the Kgo was a better choice for me. The spinner is still a great little VV battery - just didn't have enough power for me!

    Just keep reading and you will find the right gear, I have no doubt!

    Seems like reading is what I'll be doing a lot of until I decide. Thanks again.
