    Default Only RIVA

    I keep reading about all these new Ego's and Tornados and such. I just dont get all the hype.

    I get my Riva kits from Liberty Flights for about $35 which comes with 2 full ecigs. They are about as long as a traditional cigarette but just a little thicker. Now I'll admit the included attys arent that great but the Riva batteries last me more than a day each when fully charged. Dont get me wrong, the included attys work, they just seem to die a little quicker than the genuine Joyes do. I use both Joye 510 attys and Dual Coil cartos on these batteries and they both work great. For $35 - 2 full RIVAS,10 empty carts, USB charge and ac adapter - its a pretty good deal.

    Ive been vaping for 3 years now and these Rivas have MORE than fit the bill. Ive had a couple of batteries that have lasted me over a year of constant vaping - thats no lie. Im not sure what the standard MAH is on these things but its more than enough for me.

    If I had any complaints at all about the RIVA it would be that I wish the button was a little more recessed as sometimes if I put it in my jacket pocket along with my keys it has activated while sitting down.

    To each his own...but if you want an e-cig that just does what its supposed to and lasts much longer than a traditional 510...I dont think you will find anything at a better price/value than a RIVA.

    Thanks LF, you have a permanent customer in me.

    Agreed. The Riva batteries are awesome.

    That said, I am starting to save up for a Firefly kit. XD

    Thanks for the post! The Riva's are still probably my favorite. I like them with the Single Coil EGO cartos.

    Though... I have been leaning towards some of the HV devices lately. I really like the LT with a 3.0 ohm carto, or the 5v EGO E-power, with a DCT!

    About your pocket fires.... Currently, the riva kits DO NOT have the ON/OFF feature. I would like to get this implemented soon. I will likely wait for another batch or two to come in, as we could use the stock, and I dont want to extend the lead times.

    I just got some new Firefly kits, with 510-T atomizers! These are great! Much better than Joye. The Firefly 510 atties are really good too. I have an order of these on the way. These will supersede the EM brand. They actually use a wider gauge coil, which should offer better performance, and increased lifespan.

    Cheers!

    That's weird. Both the Riva 510 and 901 kits that I have purchased from LF in the past month have the 3 click on/off feature.

    Anyway, I agree 100% with the OP. Riva is the way to go for a low price, high quality device that delivers, especially when it comes from Liberty Flights.

    I'M THROWING MONEY AT THE SCREEN AND NOTHING HAPPENS!!

    *sigh* I got to save me some greenbacks for one of those kits...

    Anyway, back on topic. That's what buying a kit is all about: the batteries. After a month or two, even brand new vapers will start using atties, cartos and tanks that were not originally made for their kit. It's just the nature of the beast. We like variety and our likes are varied. Sure, some people do prefer whatever atty or carto came with their kit, but I think it's safe to say those guys and gals are in the minority.

    And, in a world where kits are about the batts, very few beat the LF Riva. Specially their new stock of singles. The last ones I got had the 3-click on/off feature. I just like them better than eGo's. It is much more pleasant on the digits when hitting a soft silicone button instead of a hard plastic one.

    The firefly is the best atty I've used. I do not think that the Joye can touch it. There just well made. Great vapor, good flavor and goes on and on and on. Can't wait for them to arrive. What will these be called?

    Yes. We had some minor changes take place when we switched suppliers. However... These new Riva kits from Smok Tech, are great! I will get the 3-click On/Off added to them... but we really needed to get them stocked at the time, and I didnt want to delay the lead time. The atomizers arent the best.. But I will have more carto kits pretty soon. Since Smok Tech will be making both the batteries and cartos (as before, we had to piece them together from various suppliers), it should make them much easier to keep in stock... and should allow us to offer a bit more variety (ie: something other than just black or steel).

    Honestly, the beginning of this year has gotten off to a bit of a slow start. Regardless, by summer we should have a lot of new changes implemented, to not only improve the quality of the products, the the quality of our service as well.

    they are the same price as the normal firefly kits. they only cost us a little more, but we should be able to drive that down with larger orders. For some reason though... I didnt get spare 510-t atomizers. I have no idea why... but now im thinking i need to buy me a new kit, for the atomizers

    I know what you mean about kits, and atomizers though. Thats why I made the original carto deluxe's way back (credit to Abe for the name). People were buying Riva kits, and a 5/pack of cartos. Im sure the atties and carts ended up in a drawer much of the time and thats why I am getting these firefly 510-T kits in, and i have some Riva XL Carto Deluxe kits in the works... and we now have 5v kits with DCT's... because these are some of the best performing atties and cartos ive found. they are reliable, consistent, and require little fuss or maintenance.

    But you're right, in that everyone has their own preferences, and that is why we we offer a wide variety of components, from various manufacturer's. Heck.. we still sell things like 4081, and 801 atties. as soon as stock gets low, i get an email so, my approach is two-fold: first; to provide the best possible experience for new users, in terms of performance, and ease of use, and second; to provide outstanding customer support after sale, including things like variety on the shelf, knowledgeable staff, and product guarantees.

    Probably just Firefly 510-T Atomizers. I would want to indicate they are the same as the 510-T atomizers in the Firefly 510-T kit. I also do not want to disclose the manufacturer. You are welcome to speculate, though I will likely not comment further on the issue. I have built a good relationship with my sales rep, and he's consistently gone above and beyond what I've come to expect from others in a similar position. I personally met the designer of the device, and it was he who pointed out many of the improvements they have made, vs similar products on the market. We have changed suppliers for our most recent supply of Firefly products, and have continued to make improvements. I have invested a lot of my time and effort into this, and will be continuing to offer new and improved products in the future. We have a nice EGO-T style kit about ready to go, and are just awaiting the final samples, before we proceed with the order. The atomizers will give the same great performance some of you have already experienced. The batteries have some other tweaks, that I have mentioned in other threads.

    My favorite part though, is that this industry is really getting to the fun part. E-cigs have been around for about 5 or 6 years now. Its not a baby, or a toddler anymore. It can run and jump and talk and play. Just like a kid. I feel very fortunate to be involved in the process. As the years have progressed, the ecig has really evolved, and those evolutions happen much more rapidly nowadays, than ever before. I love that the end-user is the driver force. I love watching the consumer create a demand, and the suppliers struggle to meet it. I love that people are waking up everyday, and making the decision to quit supporting big tobacco.

    well... that was a simple question. and may not have warranted such a complex answer. but i am happy i was able to share my thoughts. I know we have had some issues as of late (specifically, stock, quality control, etc), but i also want you to know, these are the issue at the forefront of my mind. i know it has taken some time, and ive had to apologize about this or that more than once. but the time has been spent wisely. ive been laying ground work... tilling the soil, and watering the seeds... springtime is around the corner, and were just about ready to bloom


    goodnight,
    Ty

    Yes, there is a 900mah available with the Lite Bundle, available in black or steel. $33.99 with coupon code "october20" for 20% off.
    It does NOT come with a 3 click on/off, but it might in the future. ImYourSalt addressed that question in post #4 of this thread and touched on it again in post #8.
