Jantystick versus 801 Screwdriver
I'd love to see a comparison between the two if anyone owns both. I already have the 901-SD and I'm not interested in seeing it compared to the 801-compatible stick. Anyone have the manual switch stick and the 801-SD who can give some thoughts on it?
How does the BE-112 differ from the DSE801 (which you retired)? It's also a penstyle, right? And how do you like it?
At the risk of questioning you to death, how is that Kensington Powerpack (into which you plug your passthrough I suppose) working for you?
By the way, I also would like to see a comparison between the Jantystick and the Screwdriver.

I'm 3 for wanting to see a review. I just got a stick a couple of days ago and it is now my primary device. There must be someone out there that owns both!
I would also like to know so i can make up my mind on which one to buy
being as they both use a 3.7volt single cell , and both have a manual switch and both will use the same atomizer I'm guessing performance wise there will be very little or no difference.
The only variable on performance will be airflow and how that effects the vapour production.
ofcourse the SD uses a higher mAh cell so will last longer on a single charge.
Janty are planning on releasing a jantystick V.2 sometime soon , instead of plastic construction it will be made from metal , probably aluminium which will make it more durable and appealing to some ( that'll be me )
I would also like to see this "apples to apples" comparison.
If you have an e-cig model that is providing the same volts with the same type of atomizer and an on/off power source as another e-cig model it would seem that they would both perform similarly.
Most people are about as happy as they make up their mind to be. - A. Lincoln
I have both well, kinda, I've got what Trog used to sell as the "Ultimate" kit which was the standard 901 SD with an adapter for the 801. I have owned the SD for a few months had have had the stick for close to a month. Initially there was no difference in performance, vapor, taste, throat-kick wise. There still isn't a difference to me in those areas, as there shouldn't be, they are both 3.6 to 3.7 devices using the same atomizer with a manual switch.
The seperating factors are:
Let's look at these individually,
Batteries - the Screwdriver roughly gets twice the battery life as the stick. It is important to note that with both the screwdriver and the Janty Stick the batteries will begin loosing life within a few weeks. You will notice they don't last as long as when you first purchased them, you will need to replace these batteries just as you do any other PV(although at a cheaper cost and less frequently). The Janty Stick uses a built in usb passthrough so when you have USB or 110 available and within reach you can charge and vape at the same time.
Durability - The Janty Stick is made of plastic, the SD is made of aluminum. They both use a manual switch. The switch on the Janty Stick looks to be prone to separating from the body and is held by adhesive. You can stick it back on there but if it separates once it will separate again. Some Sticks have a leaking issue (this may be caused by the rubber tip cartridges), while any PV will leak, it seems more detrimental to the stick because it can collect in there and become messy. The SD switch is durable but will wear out eventually and need to be replaced which Trogg can either send you directions or you can send it back to him for repair. The SD switch will break if you drop the SD and it lands on the switch. The Atomizer connection on the SD if dropped with an atomizer connected could become damaged if it lands on the atomizer end. The Janty Stick if dropped could fall apart and need to be reassembled as Cellmeister shows here: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...nty-stick.html
Cost - The Janty Stick is $80 and the Screwdriver is $160. Batteries for the Screwdriver cost as low as $2 and as high as $10, no e-cig retailers carry the batteries so you will need to order them from other retailers online such as www.dealextreme.com or Welcome to BatteryJunction.com - Our prices won't leave you drained! The Stick uses the same batteries as e-cigars and are available from several e-cig retailers. They can be purchased for as low as $1.50 and as high as $4. The Janty Stick comes with a 6 month warranty.

hehe , I didn't know the button on the switch was mounted with adhesive though..I don't like the sound of that, lets hope Janty can sort that out on the V.2
Well if someone has a JS & Prodigy, I can meet up and they can do the video. I will supply.
