    Default GG Review - first week impressions

    This is my impressions of the GG. I've been vaping with it this week and thought I'd share my experiences.

    When it arrived, my very first impression was that it wasn't as big as I thought it was going to be. It's just an unch longer then my screwdriver (SD) and its width is just an unch smaller than the SD.

    It has a very solid feel to it and fits nicely in my hand. It has that hand-crafted quality look and feel that we don't see much of now-a-days. The button is a nice size and I understand that it is adjustable, but it came preset to a good height. I played with the button a bit and it pops up and down nicely.

    I unscrewed the end cap to pop in the batteries and the first thing I notice is that there are no wires or soldering inside the battery case. All the components, both inside the case and outside, are all manually crafted into place. So I'm thinking how the heck Imeo (the designer and manufacturer of the GG) got his hands in there to position those tiny pieces in place LOL!

    The atomizer end-cap, battery side, doesn't have one of those springy things but a flat base plate that pops up and down. I'm thinking this is very good for me - I don't have much luck with those springy things, they seem to untwist or unravel and I have to fiddle with getting them curled again. The end caps thread on and off nicely with a very good fit.

    So I screw on a 901 atty, which screws on nice and tight, drip a few drops on the atty, put the mouthpiece on and take a drag. oh… my… god!! The first thing I notice is the enhanced warmth of the vapor - I mean my whole mouth filled with very warm, very soothing vapor. And the flavor - I never knew my liquid tasted that good! I then inhale the vapor and the throat hit I got was absolute heaven - none of my previous e-cigs even came close to giving me that kind of throat hit. I'm thinking wow, wow, and wow again!

    I take a few more drags and my room is like this vapor filled den hahaha!! Hubby comes in, takes one look, shakes his head, and walks out. Now I'm sitting there looking at this amazing device and the biggest grin spreads across my face. For the very first time since I started vaping I realize that I have finally found what I've been looking for.

    The warmth, vapor, and throat hit from the GG are absolute heaven. There's no other way to describe it - a little bit of heaven on earth for my vaping satisfaction.

    It almost feels surreal - everything is SO enhanced - the warmth, the vapor, the throat hit, even the flavor. Only when the battery charge got very low did I notice a difference in performance.

    I bought the 510 adapter with the GG, so now I try that. Nice good fit to the GG and to the atty. Drip a few drops on the atty, put the mouth piece on, and WOW - I didn't know the 510 atty could do that hahaha!!

    So now I primarily use the 510 atty with the GG. It's interesting in that the 510 atty doesn’t get nearly as hot as it did with the 510 battery. The only explanation I would have for that is the 510 adapter barrier is blocking some of the heat transfer.

    I haven't fried any attys this week, either 510 or 901, but I do keep them wet, without flooding them of course.

    Since using the GG this week, I realize I didn't know what I was missing. But now vaping with the GG, I REALLY know what I was missing!

    I now know why Imeo calls this puppy immortal - I think it will last me forever and I am SO in my comfort zone.

    CONS:
    None I can think of right now. The design and overall build of the GG is remarkable. The only con I can think of is I can't seem to get the GG unglued from my mouth hahaha!!

    PROS:
    Significant improvement in warmth, vapor production, throat hit, flavor vs vaping at 3.6 volts. Solid, durable, built tough. Exceptional hand-crafted quality workmanship

    I can use a 3.6 v battery with a spacer if I want lower volts, but after vaping with 6 volts I don't see that happening. I've found I can take very short drags and still get full effects rather than having to take a looong drag to get good vapor and throat hit. Definitely a plus!

    From what I understand, the next models have a security button added where it can be locked and not depressed accidentally. I think the next generation of GGs is going to be what Imeo calls the GG Transformer where you can have the best of all worlds with versatility of design and voltage capabilities.

    I definitely recommend the GG.

    what she said ====

    excellent mamu,
    you did such a good job, there is nothing to add,
    except this one point --

    --- if, and big if, - ever --
    something does break on the GG,
    it is so well designed and constructed,
    you can go to the local hardware store,
    buy a small part, and fix it yourself in 5 minutes--

    this is not an e-cig mod that you will use for the life of a few attys,
    this is a brilliantly designed, and skillfully handcrafted
    immortal e-cig that will be with you for a very long time,
    probably for the best part, of the rest of your life.

    Great review, mamu. As you know from my many PMs to you on the subject , I'm most interested in this mod.

    I'm looking for an e-cig that provides full flavor, plumes of vapor and decent throat hit - with consistent reliability. Good looks don't hurt either. Some of the other mods look like they come straight out of a toolbox, IMO I'm impressed that the GG has no wiring or soldering that can become problematic down the road. I want my next (last?) e-cig to fulfill all my needs and last a very long time with little to no maintenance.

    Another thing that's important to me is good customer service and communication from the supplier. Both the developer and supplier for the GG appear very attentive to the customer's needs and desires.

    Yup, I foresee a GG purchase in the very near future.

    You did a wonderful job Mamu!
    Being honest with everything is the absolute best way to go when it comes to these things cause there are plenty of people here that would act on impulse by words alone, and your words were beautifully said. and more importantly the God's honest truth.

    There are some people that will praise things just to be cool and known there are some that do it for freebies and incentives, then there are some that has found their perfect device and wants to share it with the world to try in knowing facts that they will indeed share this amazing feeling with you. We my friend just like our other friends are the latter.
    Simply outstanding Mamu!

    If you are looking for a home on ECF or in this vaping world, you have the greatest family right here!.

    Hiya Judge - Yes, I think the GG has been very well designed and constructed. Although I've had it for only about a week, I don't see any breakable parts or where there would be problematic failures. Only need to pop in fresh batteries every once in a while and you're good to go.

    You're right - the GG is definitely not a mod. You can tell from inside to outside that the design and construction has been very well thought out and will last.

    I think you're going to be very happy with what the GG will give you. I know I am.

    Yes, the developer, Imeo, is very accessible and does try hard to make sure his GG customers are taken care of. His customer service goes above and beyond. It's quite refreshing, actually.

    KreeL, my late night buddy - you have absolutely no idea what the GG can do for your 510 atty. Simply amazing!

    Amplify what you get now with your 510 by 200% and you'll know what I'm talking about.

    Very nice review! I am really interested in the next generation of GG -- do you know when is to going to be available? Also, is there any reseller in USA?

    This part of your review impressed me a lot:

    I am not good with springs and things either, so having a solid piece that doesn't require much manual dexterity or that doesn't have all kinds of things that can get lose is a huge plus for me.

    How are your atomizers doing on that high voltage?
