    Default disappointed in the copper.

    I got a brand new round copper, and I'm a bit disappointed in the 3.6v operation. not much vapor, mediocre flavor in comparison to my normal kr8's. the 6v is a bit too much though, I just took a hit from a hilton premium carto 11mg and damn near died. I took a hit from a normal carto that has TV atomic cinnicide in it, and it tastes burnt. damn. krap. not what I was hoping for. I guess I'll look around, or get that chuck I was planning on. I might even sell this to try to re-coup some of my funds. poo. I vape all night on a 5v PT, so I am a bit familiar with hv stuff. dangit.. this is worse than when you have high hopes for a new juice, and it tastes like the south end of a horse going northbound.

    I don't have a Copper, so I can't comment on it.

    However, I do have a Chuck and it is SWEEEET!

    I don't have a copper but my 905 at 6volts tastes burnt and with some of my cartos the 5 volt does too. But my 5 volt passthrough handles them all fine. I think it's the higher wattage that makes some taste burnt.

    To handle yourself, use your head; To handle others, use your heart.

    well, I'm gonna give it a few days, but I doubt I'll be using this as a 6v pv. I've tried 2 or 3 different cartos and they all taste burnt. I haven't tried a brand new one fresh outta the bubblepack, but I will tomorrow morning. I gotta go to sleep, a co-worker called in sick the last 3 days, so I get to work tomorrow, cause they're afraid he'll be sick. blah. working on my only day off in a week sucks.

    Wow I didn't know higher voltages could toast flavors like that - what atomizer is it using the kr808?

    I cannot understand why you are having that problem.

    I own 3 coppers, the original, rounded and the mini. I just got done vaping on my rounded and the vapor it puts out is fine, maybe not the best flavor but not bad. I was using a 510 atty.

    Are you sure that your atty was ok?
    Don't you hate it when people make promises that they do not keep?

    You might do some research on Great Lake Vaper's GLV 5v. There can be a wait in the ordering process, but it is well worth it.

    I was disappointed with my Copper, as well. I didn't like the switching mechanism, and within a month the thing would activate on it's own if held horizontally (I think the weight of the stem was causing it to tilt downwards, and make unintentional contact inside). I'm sure it was just a worn or weak spring, and the supplier would have fixed it, but by then I wanted something else and didn't want to bother with it.

    I love mine, I have the round one also and using 2 CR2 batts (which are
    not my favorites), so I am vaping at 6V.
    The CR2 batts I have in mine are disposible, and they are still going strong after 2 days, so that aint bad. Got some re-chargable ones on order!

    In fact, this is so far my 2nd favorite HV PV after the Prodigy V2.

    The draw is just like I like it, not too "airy", you get some "resistance" when sucking on it, and I get a LOT of vapor.

    I like this PV much better than the Silver Bullet (which I sold).

    But I agree with you guys about the damn switch.
    I can not get the hang of pushing in on it with my mouth, it's just very
    awkward to say the least. What a dumb design!!
    So while I love the vapor I get, this is a "two hand" operation!!
    I push the stupid atty down with the thumb and finger of my left hand
    while holding the unit in my right.

    Should be getting my "Chuck" and my "Super 6" next week

    So in the end, I will hopefully find my "holy grail" of PV's

    I've had my Copper for about a month now and love it! I'm using it at 6V and the vapor is insane, but it uses A LOT of juice and the 510 attys only last a little over a week. I've found if you put some electrical tape over the atty to keep it from getting hot, you just use your pointer finger and thumb to activate it. I love mine!
