    Default New to Bottom Feeders

    I am new to bottom feeders so please pardon my ignorance and I have questions before I can purchase. What do I need 1st off to get started? How much is it going to cost and where do I purchase these things? I've used the mini ego ( the size of a cigarette) an ego, and Zmax with cartomizers in a tank, vivi nova's, kanger T3... list goes on. I haven't tried dripping because I'm not quite sure how. I have had crappy luck with pretty much everything because I vape the dark sweet juices. I usually go through a Smok cartomizer a day except with the Ikenvape ones I usually go through 2 which I have no idea why. It was suggested to me by Bad to try a bottom feeder like a Reo. I haven't had the $$ to start all over again but I need to order carts and was thinking maybe just use that $$ to order a bottom feeder instead. Soooo if you can help me figure out what I am doing I would appreciate it very much so!

    Good choice. You will need a REO. Blems start from 115. They are brand new with usually undetectable or very minor imperfections in the finish. A grand or mini 2.1

    You will need an aw IMR 18650 battery for a grand or an aw IMR 18490 for a mini 2.1. I would suggest buying at least 2 batteries to start. RTD vapor.com. I also recommend an xtar wp2 charger from RTD vapor.

    You will still need either a carto, an atty or an RBA.

    That and juice and your ready to rock.

    Lets see, 115 for the REO, 6 for shipping, approx 10 per battery, 20 for the charger, 6 for shipping = +/- $170. + whoever you need for the topper (carto /atty / RBA) and your set

    I have batteries for the grand already but not sure what to do for a topper, which is best and how do I find it? I am assuming the cartomizers I have won't work for this because they are prepunched and would need a tank?

    Are they AW IMR's? They are the recommended battery for all REOs.

    If you buy the Reomizer 2 you'll never have to buy a carto or atty again. Make your own coils for pennies. In three months or so you'll be even or ahead of what you are doing now.

    Prepunched - no. The best bet is REOs new RBA. I know that RBAs sound intimidating - their not . 43 for one that will last indefinitely is very good. Here's a link of a Step by step picture tutorial how to build the REO RBA. Check it out and tell me if it looks to tough
