Chances are you are either thinking about purchasing your first REO, or you recently received yours and would like to find all the basic information to get yourself started without searching the 1000’s of threads here in the forum. I have compiled some important links that should help you down the path:
Note that all new REO models now contain the sub ohm / upgraded / high output contacts and heat resistant button.
There are several different models of REOs currently available (as of 5/20/2014). Below is a link to each in the REOsmods website that provides model specific information and dimensions to help you decide:
The REO Mini 2.1 http://www.reosmods.com/index.php?op...id=36&Itemid=3
The REO Grand Reo Grand.
There are variants to these models:
LP = Low Profile. This is a mod where the catchcup is milled shallower than the standard mod. It is intended for users who only use Rebuildable Atomizers. If you use or are considering using cartomizers or factory atomizers, the standard mod is a better choice for you.
SL = Super Light. These mods have a symmetrical pattern of slots drilled in the doors and bodies to reduce weight and provide for a “see thru” visual appeal. Here's a picture so you get the idea:
Each REO has its unique characteristics, but all of them share the same durable, high quality materials and construction, form factor, craftsmanship and will provide you with the highest quality vape.
