    The atomizer rocks in the 901. I have had very good luck w/ those, but batteries are another story. Autos always seem to get stuck in the on position for me. I just makes mods and use 901/801 attys now though. 510 for when i'm out and about.

    I really liked my 901, I just tend to like the power of the 510 a little better, so when my old 901 atty's died I decided to just stick with one type instead of having supplies on had for 2.

    Thumbs up

    I'm a Newbie from Italy.

    901 is my first e-cig and I'm very happy

    Just my 2 cents...

    Next step will be buying e-liquid and start to recharge , but I have to find Pyramid Tea Bags here , not easy!

    Good Vaping!

    The 901 is my regular vape, the 510 is the one I use when I want a big "hit".

    Each has it's own way of being used. The 901 generally needs a "primer" puff then a nice long slow drag. The 510 is immediate with the manual batt.

    Both have their places.

    I get thru a day with a single batt on each one. But then I vape both during the day.

    I think the 510 just made the 901 an easy target for comparison - the 901 was one of the original mini's so that was what makers shot for.

    Using my original kit 901 attys on my JS now.

    I love the look and feel of the 901 but my batt luck was no where near yours. I'd get 2 hours tops (heavy vaping though) and the auto switch was very hit/miss for me.

    I switched to a passthru for it and that made all the difference. Thinking about the manual batts to try my luck again.

    I'm not liking mine. The batteries seem to be good- they charge quick, and last a long time. I am not terribly impressed with vapor production, though it is acceptable. The BIG problem I have with it, is the really hard draw. No matter what cart filler, I have to suck like crazy on the thing. Like trying to suck a milkshake through a coffee stirrer straw.

    Saying that the battery lasts 5-6 hours on a charge for you is not really helpful when how you use it is not also provided. Thousands of members have used the 901. Most consider it a good "beginner" PV. But the vast majority did NOT get even close to 5-6 hours of battery life from it. If a battery (RCR123a 1000mAh) typically gets about 6 -7 hours on a charge and it is 4 times more powerful that a 901 battery, how is it scientifically possible to get 6 hours from a 901????

    The answer: it's not possible, with one exception. You are one of those very, very, light users who hit's it once every hour or so. For the vast majority, the 901 batteries last 1-2 hours.

    You can not change the laws of science.
