    Default PLEASE HELP!!! Newb here! Which REO?

    hello everyone.....Im needing info on which REO to purchase?

    1) VV Grand or Regular?

    2) Is this a manual dripping device or a mechanical? (I have read somewhere that it was manual, I dont want that)

    3) What else do I need to complete my order besides batteries?

    I just need some guidance...info is overwhelming on here.

    Thank you everyone!!!

    1) VV Grand or Regular? For myself, regular. It can't go wrong, and with an rm2 or similar, you can make your coils to your own spec , giving you much the same control over your vape as the vv, but washable.

    2) Is this a manual dripping device or a mechanical? (I have read somewhere that it was manual, I dont want that)the dripping is achieved through a bottom feeding tube to a bottle in the mod that you squeeze to refresh your wick. So, manual, yes, you have to squeeze the bottle. Butt he bottle is cleverly built into the mod, with no need to pull the drip tip or carry a bottle around.

    3) What else do I need to complete my order besides batteries? You will need an atomizer. If you are comfortable with rebuildables, the rm2 is hard to beat. The Igo s is quite nice also, just a few differences in setup ( no ceramic base, slip on cap instead of threaded).

    I just need some guidance...info is overwhelming on here. It is a big world, but full of very helpful, friendly, and clever people. Welcome!

    Thank you everyone!!!
    side note, think about what you like to wick with. Many of us are making micro coils on the rm2 and wicking with some type of sterile or organic cotton. Of course, do what you are comfortable with, but many have had good experiences with this set up.

    I've never had the VV reo, but I simply don't miss VV or VW. I build my coils how I want the vape. Life is much simpler now for me.

    he sells LP 'LOW PROFILE' Reos so you can fit pretty much anything on it, and you need Rm2 for low profile ...

    GoodLuck

    I've always used vv/vw devices until I got a Reo Grand. I build around a 1.3ohm coil on the RM2. I wick mine with 1mm silica doubled, but lots of people use cotton. Do lots of reading here for all the how tos.

    Here's what you would need for the best vape. IMHO

    Reo Grand
    RM2
    Batteries AW 18650 at least 2. Here: Genuine AW Batteries at RTD Vapor
    Wicking material - Cotton, silica or whatever you prefer
    A couple of extra spring from Reomods as that is the short protection. The spring will collapse if there is a hard short and then have to be replaced. Oh, and a button top, easier on the thumb or finger. Comes in black delrin, brass, or aluminum.

    Instead of the RM2 you can just use a low ohm 1.7 carto or low ohm atty, but I say just get the RM2 and be done with it.

    As far as is it manual? There is a bottle inside the door for eliquid. It's connected by a tube to the 510 connector. Then you squonk (press with your thumb) and it feeds juice to your topper. Kind of like upside down dripping without the bottle and the mess.

    Maverickbo,

    Seeing as you only have 14 posts at the time I'm writing this, and advertised yourself as a newb, I took a quick glance at your past posts.

    I noticed you have a Provari on the way.

    Keeping that in mind, I think the mechanical Reo Grand would be a better choice for you. I believe the mechanical Reo will round out your arsenal much more robustly than the VV Grand would.

    You have some things to learn about rebuilding, but trust me the overwhelming consensus is rebuilding is the way to really get the most out of your Reo, and it's what sets it apart from anything else out there.

    If you should want regulated power for your Grand, you can always put a Kick in it.

    Here's a quick suggested shopping list for you...

    From Reosmods.com:

    Reo Grand (I'd go with an LP)

    RM2 (if you purchase an LP Grand, be sure you get an LP RM2)

    1 or 2 extra springs

    Extra RM2 screws


    Batteries:

    AW 18650 1600mAh are the BEST batteries for your Reo. Do not be tempted to get higher mAh batteries, trust me you want these exact batteries for the best performance, longest life, and best fit for a mechanical Reo Grand:

    AW IMR 18650 3.7v 1600mAh - Batteries


    Rebuilding supplies:

    28g Kanthal wire - Kanthal Wire 28 Gauge RW0117 - 50 FT 0.31oz Series A-1 Resistance AWG

    Your going to want some silica, or cotton for wicking material. I would suggest cotton. You can get a box of 130 sterile cotton balls at a local CVS for around $4 bucks.

    You can use your Provari as a meter to check the resistance of your RM2 builds. However, you can find these little 510 ohm meters around, and not only are they a bit more accurate, but they make nice platforms to hold your atty while mounting coils.

    510 Ohm Meter Model 2 - Kidney Puncher


    Finally, please take the time to read up on some subjects regarding vaping and safety. This is an excellent thread with many links in it to answer a lot of questions you may have:

    1) VV Grand or Regular? It depends on what you want, but I'd recommend the Grand

    2) Is this a manual dripping device or a mechanical? (I have read somewhere that it was manual, I dont want that) Reos have a bottle inside that you simply press to wet your atomizer.

    3) What else do I need to complete my order besides batteries? You'll need an atomizer of some kind, I'd recommend the Reomizer 2 RDA. If you're unfamiliar with rebuildables you can always grab some 510 LR atomizers or cartomizers. If you do decide to go with the RM2 you will need wick (i.e. cotton, silica, etc), A1 kanthal wire (28-30 gauge), and either a digital multimeter or ohm meter.
    I would also recommend that you grab a spare spring or 2 and a couple 6ml bottles



    Edit: I'm slow
