    Default Which mods?

    I was curious to see where everyones vape path have taken them. I know many of you have made this much like me a risk reduction unit but also enjoy it as an enthusiast and made it a hobby. I have been at vaping nearly 2 months and accumulated quite a bit in a short amount of time

    I have:

    A Buzz pro (my best go to mod)
    My lavatube ( a solid backup for the buzz)
    Volcano Inferno (a backup and also my current pass thru)
    A bolt (I got in trade but dont really care to use)
    A 3vo v2 (I really like this devices design however today for the first time It burnt through batteries real fast and wont accept protected trustfires.....)
    A vmod xl 2.0 (on order and very excited to try this mod)

    Mods that have been discarded or traded:
    elipse Ovale (I hated this mod. It sucked and was pretty exspensive for its poor performance)
    Buzz OG (bought second hand off the classifieds and drove my want for a buzz pro)

    I have amassed quite a few pvs in a very short amount of time. I love trying new things. I keep saying i am going to sell some of the stuff I dont use and use the funds to buy new devices but instead they are just becoming "one of the soon to be many"

    Whats your story ?

    Had never heard of ECF, got sucked into all the 'review sites' with google searches in the beginning. Bought a V2 travelers kit. Discovered ECF almost immediately after receiving the V2. Bought an Ego T about 2 days later. Leaking, wicking problems, muted flavor... but enough pleasure to cement my decision to be a full time vaper. Discarded ego t tank and atomizers and moved to 510 & 306 attys and dripping on the ego batt. Vaping in full gear now. Started major juice hunt. Although I still do it quite often to this day, the demand of constant attention to dripping started to weigh on my nerves. Bought a REO Mini. Vaping is now a complete JOY! Higher voltage over the ego batt with the REO, and the luxury of bottom feeding makes vaping way more enjoyable. Then, because it's cheap, I move into the realm of VV with a lava tube. Pretty awesome. Experiment with ce2s and carto tanks, and found at least five juices the float my boat. Next step will be either a REO VV, a Provari v2, or a notcigs VVPV. Probably be able to lay claim to all three before the holidays, considering my obsession with vaping. As for coiled equipment, Steeljan has just peaked my interest with the Gotvapes Pheonix cartos. And Ikenvape i06 is my next atty investment. That's where I'm at now. Hitting some Nitelite Sundance V2 as we speak. Mmmmmm....

    Lessee...Stuff I still have:

    • My first crummy m401 (I think) that I bought at a smoke shop here. You won't catch me dead using it.
    • 2 ego bats, one of which I think is dead, and a couple ego passthrus. Those I carry in a small case as bakups.
    • I went through several iterations building my own bottom feeders. Most are RIP but, I think there are a couple around.
    • A madvapes VV box mod.
    • A Boge Revolution V2
    • A buzz pro
    • A Reo mini


    I use the buzz and reo daily. The rest are just there in case I need them. I still have enough stuff to build a mod anytime I want. I'll probably get a VV Reo when they come available.

    Alright... My story, but there are too many e-cigs to list. I'm going to have to shorten it a lot.

    My very first e-cig was an original rough stack I traded an old cowboy for (he admired a lariat hanging in my truck - I admired the idea of vaping). Good trade. I was done with tobacco.

    I used that old rough stack for quite a while. I was fortunate to find decent juice online and new attys (after some mishaps ordering the wrong stuff because I didn't know the difference between atty connectors). Then about 14 or 15 months ago, I found madvapes site... I bought a couple of 510 kits and used them for a while. Then I bought a new rough stack when the v2s came out - then another - then I got a third (a gift from madvapes - customer service sort of thing).

    Those rough stacks were the beginning of a tube mod landslide. Name a tube mod other than the VV ones and I either have it or have had it and traded it. There are very few unaccounted for (there are a few... still want a megalodon and a couple of others).

    Tube mods led to box mods. I don't really know why. I've broken dozens because my work and play are rough. There are only two plastic boxes I've wanted that I never got - a tekk (I'll either get or make one some day) and the Big Daddy (still sort of want it, but might not get that one). My favorite box mod was my first feeder. It was a non-descript (don't know who made it) top feeder that lasted about 3 weeks before it got crushed by a big ornery steer.

    Those box mods led to bottom feeders starting with an old goat. I got a second non-descript (don't know who made it) plastic feeder. Then I got a REO mini. I love my REO.

    Most recently, I bought a VVPV. I am very much enjoying the VVPV. I'm really feeling very spoiled using this PV. I can't actually imagine a better set-up. A VV All metal top feeder with a 5ml juice capacity and the charge lasts all day and then some... I am spoiled.

    In the near future, I plan to get a VV REO, but I'm still debating with myself about trying to snag a VV Woodville on sale night (coming maybe in just a few days) or waiting for the Metal VV REO Grand (probably coming in a few weeks). If I end up liking the VV REO as much as I like my VVPV, I'll probably just quit buying mods.

    Stuff i wouldn't want to live without: My Rough Stacks - My Kalamazoo Triple-V - My REO Mini - and my VVPV. No matter what else happens, I won't let go of any of those ever.


    EDIT: I should mention the ego batts. Also about the same time I found madvapes, the ego-t was coming out. I got an ego-t from cignot and used it regularly for a few months. It worked well for me. I have a double-handful of ego batts but I don't use the tank system any more.

    Altsmoke Alpha rocking a smoktech DCT with a 1.7 ohm single coil. Juice is bluemistvaping pink watermelon

    Lavatube rocking another smoktech DCT with a 3 ohm single coil at 4.8 volts. Juice is bluemistvaping Rob's black jack

    Madvapes VV box mod with a 1.7 ohm single coil at about 3.7 volts. Juice is bluemistvaping Smooth

    Madvapes 3.7 box mod not in use

    Madvapes 5v box mod not in use

    Both sizes of roughstack, both not in use.

    2 kr808 batteries, not in use

    2 510 batteries, not in use

    4 ego batts in total, run 2 every day in my backup bag, sometimes they're my main PV. I use the same setup as my alpha.

    Countless cartos and atomizers, not going to try.

    And about 500ml in total of tons of different juices, mostly consisting of bluemistvaping and pillbox38. I RECOMMEND THE HELL OUT OF BLUEMISTVAPING.

    That's it

    -started off years ago with an Njoy Ecigar
    -tried a short cigarette looking device..
    then i discovered mods
    -discovered Trog and his new fangled Screwdriver...loved it, still do
    -wanted juice feed options..went with Carlos' Juicebox and handmade atomizer, loved it..still do
    -tried a smaller version..Wetbox..eh.didnt work for me
    -stayed with Crlos' juicebox for a long while
    -came back to mods with the Ego, first batch (i didnt know it was new, just got it, and it happened to be the new thing, i still use it..but mostly just to test things)
    -stayed with that and Carlos for a while
    -realized i wanted more power and variable
    -went back and forth..then just did it...went Darwin, and havent looked back (daily vape)
    -wanted a quality vape and some elegance...went GG
    -GG slim/Superslim extension, GGTB, now GGTS
    -all the whiel searchign for better juice feed and rebuildable atomizers (Gtank, Gensis LV, Line 1 and 2, iAtty, AFS, UFS, Odysseus, Surge tank, Fog...you name it i tried it
    -picked up a one of a kind mod called Cyprus by str8vaping, VV
    -now waiting on the Penelope and Proteus GG, and a ZattyU

    everyday i use my Darwin, and one of my GGs depending on my mood

    My BESTS:
    -battery mod = GGTS
    -slim battery = GG Slim
    -internal battery and Variable power= Darwin
    -juice delivery with non rebuildable atomizer = FOG + HH357 (with UFS a strong second)
    -bottom fed juice delivery mod = Surge Tank (Carlos Juicebox still is a beast)
    -drippign atomizer non-rebuildable = HH357
    -dripping atomizer rebuildable = Odysseus drip mode
    -rebuildable atomizer with juice delivery = Odysseus Short mode

    Ive tried a lot and still own quite a few

    Im pretty much to the point where all i look for is juice, and the new GG products...im still holding out for a Gensis style rebuildable thatworks as well as my Odysseus (for me)
    Zen
    Caravela
    GG
    Billet Box

    I'm pretty function-oriented when it comes to mods and PVs. I decided I wanted to try a PV and spent several evenings lurking ECF to learn the ropes. I decided on the E-Power 14650 because I wanted generous vapor production at 3.7V and the safety and economy of a single removable battery. I wanted the longer-lasting batteries and 510 XL cartos.

    That was last November. A month later I was using two stainless steel E-Power 14650s: one with 1.7 ohm LR and the other with 2.0 ohm LR. I also have new spare parts for third E-Power if I want.

    As far as vaping goes: if I'm not smoking then the mod is working. If it works, don't fix it. My purchase of additional E-Powers was for back-up purposes.

    I don't have any need for a better vape right now and I don't need a big shiny mod to keep at home. A little shiny mod that fits in my pocket suits me best. I don't want to start a PV collection. I'd rather spend the money saved by not smoking on my hobby which is boating, not PV collecting.

    I gotta start showing more discipline as you have. It makes sense. I am going crazy with spending. I have leapt from one mod to the next and to be honest most of my choices have worked quite well. I have enjoyed all of my mods, now juices on the other hand i have had a horrible time with. I struggled to find a juice that I can tolerate. I went from ordering from blue mist right off the break.

    I bought 180mls of butter rum and still have3 160 left. I have purchased a crap ton of juice and still have trouble finding what is quite right. I will save this discussion for another thread but suffice it to say I like to experiment and I am experimenting to no end.

    I am always edging toward the next best thing thing. I can't stop. It;s like a gambling addiction only it's multi-faceted and much more complex.


    I'm rambling... Discipline.

    I may be disciplined when it comes to PVs, but that allows me to be less disciplined when it comes to boating. The old saying: "A boat is a hole in the water into which you throw money."
