    Default eGo-C Twist Review

    Well I've been using my twists since I picked them up on Tuesday non-stop, and the first battery just died. Both batteries had a full charge when they were received, verified by plugging them into the charger before any use.

    What I purchased:
    2 x eGo-C Twist (1000 mAh) batteries in White

    Specs:
    4.75" (120 mm) long from tip to tip
    9/16" (14mm) diameter (Same as a standard eGo)

    They have the standard eGo cone threading, and white illuminated plastic push-button with 5-click on-off feature.

    With a Stardust connected, the overall lenght is 7" (177 mm) which is much longer than I expected.

    Initial impressions:
    Build quality is outstanding. This device feels substantial and has a decent amount of weight to it. This battery would be very hard to damage from regular every day use, like all Joytech eGo batteries. The white coating is a soft-touch coating that a lot of manufacturers are starting to use these days and is pleasant to hold on to. The VV Twist ring on the bottom of the device moves smothly, but is stiff enough that it won't change settings on you if you leave it in your pocket. The numbers on the dial are very small. The only way I could see them getting around this would be to print the numbers on the bottom. This could be a hinderance to anyone with poor eye-sight, but it's really flavour and vapor that matter, the number is just a number.

    Performance:
    The twist does exactly what it's supposed to do. You can turn the dial up or down to increase or decrease the output voltage. It ranges from 3.2v to 4.8v and using a multimeter both batteries measured out to that with in 0.01v. There are small indicators every 0.2V, but the range is completely smooth. You can set it half way between marks as there are no hard-stops except for at the ends allowing fine-tuning if required.

    I found my sweet spot was at 4.0V on my LR Stardusts, and 4.2V on my SR Stardusts for flavour vaping GRBC's Rugged Blend. More than that and I either got dry hits, or the flavour changed. Lower than that and vapor performance started to drop. I also tried this out with my LR Cisco 308 I use for dripping a few different juices and it actually performed much better around 3.4v than it does on my standard eGo.

    Battery Life:
    Well, seeing as I'm on 2 full days on the first battery, I can honestly say, the battery life is fantastic when vaping at between 4.0v and 4.2v. Pure vaping time, I would say is around 14-16 hours (I vape all day at work). Obviously YMMV if you vape with it at a different setting.

    One thing I did notice is there was ZERO drop-off when reaching the end of the battery. I actually did a double take when it died because I had a perfect hit, then nothing. Regulated circuitry is a wonderful thing. I do wish there was some sort of battery life indicator on the device so you would know whether or not your walking out of your house with a near-dead battery.

    Overall Impressions:
    As this is my first venture into a VV device, I can't compare to how well it performs against a Provari, or Darwin, but you can't argue with the cost. Batteries were $27.95 each from Canvape, so even with purchasing 2 I'm under 1/4 of the price of the other two devices after picking up chargers, batteries, etc etc to go along. It gives you an immediate option to change the intensity and flavour of your vape with very little investment. No funky menus to go through, or multiple buttons to push.

    Would I recommend it? ABSOLUTELY. If this is your first trip into VV, or if you're looking for something smaller (Diameter) than a Provari or box mod for out and about, this product is an excellent investment. Extremely easy to use, good build quality, and good battery life. No complaints here.

    great review!....I think it is the cats ..... for small easy to travel with size and cost factor when compaired to other units....although with Canvapes prices I am able to buy all kinds of new toys for way less then other mail order shops and for at lest 1/3 of the price of the only brick and mortar shop in my area!
    I don't work for canvape but I have no problem sending every bit of buisness I can...WHY ???? because the more stuff that canvape sells the better chances he will keep the prices low and afordable and for all the other vendors in my area to move on or get with the program and stop the gouging

    I had a good chuckle at the size of the 1000 mah, but as mentioned by so many others, you get use to it quickly.
    It makes my 808s cry.

    I picked up a 650 & 1000 twist battery from the classified. IMHO they are the best eGo batteries I've ever used. I'm really surprised with them, especially since all I use are my Lava Tubes.

    I'm very happy with my Twists, and compared to my iPro, the 1000's are small . I do get a bit of a drop off but not much. I don't vape all day at work, only on breaks, in the washroom, in the elevator, etc. and if I use it for a few hours at home, my battery often is done by the end of the day, with Boge SR's and at 4.5.

    I bought the ego twist by accident.
    Was unaware they sold ego bats with a VV. When I received mine I played around with the dial on the bottom (not knowing) what it was for. THen I put on my atty and vaped, but found the taste horrible...
    It took me a little to find out there were numbers on the adjustable ring below and then quickly found out what it was for.
    After I took the voltage down from 4.8 to 3.7, the taste was great..

    I now love these bats. I have a 1000 mah.

    I love my twists, I don't think I can do without VV anymore especially since I vape so many different kinds of juice on a regular basis. And it didn't break the bank!!

    I got mine last night and am very happy with it so far. I have the one 1000 mAh battery, and ordered an ego charger separately which should be here in the next couple of days. I'm happy to see Sweet Vapes has them in Pink! I'll have to order my next battery from them, along with the low resistance stardusts and some candy cane juice with a cold shot. I've never ordered from Sweet Vapes before, but since I've looked around the site and Kick Bass is closing shop for awhile...I think I'll try them out
