    Ah. I can already tell you I'm not interested in the cartomizers. Dripping sounds like the method I would prefer, simply for cost reasons. I'll be looking to buy a house after getting settled in at the new job (renting right now... it sucks). So, I'm gonna be pinching pennies wherever I can, and the cig habit is my most expensive one.

    Am I mistaken, or does the KR use cartomizers?

An extra battery or charging case might help since you are starting a new job and don't know your access to power outlets or how much you'll be hitting on this replacement habit. I came from a 30yr 1 1/2pk a day M'boro red habit to a 510 w/ 2 batteries and I'm charging both leapfrogged at least twice in a day.
    Ditto to the above. Also, what works for others may not work for you. Often it's a matter of taste, not the quality. If whatever you chose does not satisfy you-don't give up!!! Try different. You will find the right one.

    Personally, I like the 902 from Modern Vapor. It is a wonderful PV. You'll get good prices, good products, and incredible customer service there.

    For juice, I have found nothing better than MV's B&H juice. I had an analog in one hand and my 902 with B&H in the other, and couldn't tell the difference. I have about $150 worth of tiny bottles of other stuff just sitting here unused. (I went a little crazy) If you like a slight menthol, get the B&H and then go to DIYflavorshack and get menthol crystals. That way it is true menthol and not plain old mint. You can add just the right amount of menthol to the B&H and it should be perfect for you.

    If you've been around this forum, you have no doubt seen people praising the Joye510. Well, the 902 is the best of the 901 and the 510. Now you won't find 902 compatable parts everywhere, which could be considered a bad thing. I think of it as a good thing- not everybody and thier brother is making cheap knockoffs. You'll know you are getting the real thing.

    I hope this helps and doesn't add to information overload.

    PS - Get the blue filter foam (Marineland - Rite Size U - Bonded Foam Sleeve) at PetSmart and replace the cart filler. Vaping can be very annoying, a lot of fiddling, and wasteful of juice until you hit the sweet spot with the right PV, juice and cart mod. The blue filter foam is as close to perfect as I have found. The juice wicks down to the atty, so you never get that disgusting burnt atty taste, and you use almost every drop of juice in the cart. PM me and I can show you on cam how to do it, if you need help.

Each seems to have it's own distinct characteristics. You might want to try the 901 starter kit, and maybe even a Joye 510 starter kit. I have yet to try a 901 myself but I've been wanting to. I do use a 510 and I love it but I'm always open to new things as money permits. As for juice, again you've got TONS of options. I'm more of a tobacco flavor type guy myself but lately I've gotten hooked on the sweeter fruity liquids. 18-24mg seems to be a good starting point. If it's too strong for you, you can always cut it down a bit with some Vegetable Glycerine that can be gotten pretty cheap online or even at health food stores. Sampler packs are great for this. You don't go and blow 20-30 bucks on 30ml of juice you'll never use. Drew's samplers over at nhaler are awesome. Best thing is to keep an open mind and find your niche!
    Thanks for your (lengthy) reply!

    I'm not gonna be really hard to please... I'm just horribly addicted to nicotine, and as long as I get something to deliver that substance that isn't a tar-infested cigarette, I'll be pretty much good to go. I'm not all that worried about the vapor produced, and all that jazz. Very simplistic in my expectations, I suppose.

    I based most of my decisions off of DonDaBoomVape's guide here in the forum. He and Leaford seem to be fond of the 901, so that was my initial basis. It seems a lot of people get curious and purchase several different models before they find their mainstay. But I'm sort of... hm... poor? Haha. Granted, I make $25k a year, which is pretty much rich for this part of the country, but still... I don't have a whole lot of money laying around to spend. I'd probably have a lot more if I wasn't buying a carton of cigs a week, though.

    Yes, KR does use cartomizers, but they can be refilled. Find "refilling KR808D-1" on youtube.
    I use cartomizers on the go (travel for living) for convenience. But at home or hotel I drip. That's when I use 510 with KR batteries. Also, check the mod's forum for 510 fillers mods. I found a blue foam mod and love it. That will save your money big time

    I went to check out the 902. Seems MV is out of stock right now.

    "New 902 with 1/3 bigger cart coming soon."

    Yes, I've seen the Joye510 love-fest. LOL.

    I sort of fear most of the menthol juices will be a bit too stout for my liking. But menthol crystals, you say? My goodness, I had no idea how complex the e-cig world was... LOL.

    2nd thought: nothing beats cartomizers' convenience. Downside is, you don't know what's inside pre-filled one. I've had good and bad ones, and, yes it gets pricey. If my life style was different, I'd use 510 only.

    Hm... that doesn't look ALL that hard. Convenience isn't a big issue for me. Note I was a roll-your-own smoker for about six months. RYO and convenience don't exactly go hand in hand... lol.

    BTW, out of curiosity, what were the 3 other models you tried and didn't like prior to the 808D-1?

    1st was Ecighawaii I found on Amazon-total disaster. 2nd and 3rd-Green Smoke and Bloog-good vapor, but no throat hit and short battery life. You may find this video helpful: YouTube - Leaford's Video blog 8-4: My New Five Favorites
    BTW, I live in Louisville
