    I'm kinda wanting to get a really high end mod, for not so much of a high end price. Looking for something that will work really good with an RBA, both in high ohm and low ohm, maybe even sub-ohm, and also still work well with something like a protank. At this point it looks like its a toss up between a DNA20 mod of some sort, and a mechanical with a kick. Anyone have any suggestions?

    See what I'm not quite getting here is, what would the difference be from this mod, and any other mechanical mod? They all seem to be 18650 battery with a "kick" installed. Then just any RBA or Carto/clearo. Am I mistaken on that?

    I don't use a kick in any of my mechanicals. Kind of defeats the purpose imo. 69 mod is really nice as far as build quality and being able to use 510s.

    Mind if I ask why no kick? I guess the kick puts a limit on the output, whereas the straight mech mod puts output based on the ohm resistance of the coil itself? Or does the mech mod just put out a constant 3.7 no matter what ohm head or coil you have on it?

    I'm not really seeing the advantage of having a straight 3.7 no matter what, resistance, unless maybe the kick would block very low ohm coils?

    I'm just trying to understand the advantages of how these work, because most of the VV mods seem to have a pretty tight limit on power and adjustment, moreso with higher resistance coils. The DNA 20 seems to offer a bit more, but it also kinda blocks out adjustment on lower ohm coils, which I really have no intrest in going below a 1.4 right now, but in the future, who knows.

    I'm really looking to get into RBA's, but is variable voltage a bad thing with an RBA?

    Variable voltage is great but is usually maxed out at 3.5 amps which limits RBAs. Anything lower than 1.2 ( I may be a tenth or two of a volt off) yields the kick useless on a mod.

    In my opinion, a mech mod with a Kick will defeat its purpose as a real mech. Been vaping for 6 month now..still using my ego twist and a secondhand mini lambo 4.0..i still prefer vv mod though..

    Just my 2cents but "High End" = build quality and you pay for that level of quality. That having been said there are really sweet PV's out there that perform really well and you don't have to drop your inheritance to get them.

    Innokin has the MVP and SVD, both have gotten great reviews, the new stainless Vamo V2 I know is really popular.

    Im sorry to say that you dont seem like youre ready for a high end mod.

    Why? Because from your questions (asking questions is good!) it appears to me that you dont actually know yet what a mech really does, what the difference between devices is, why one might choose mech over electronic devices, and the likes. Im not trying to rip you; i sincerely think that it is too early and that you should spend more time researching before dropping your money. This way when and if you have a high end mod you can actually appreciate the money you spent on it.

    Lot of questions for you to be answered before a real high end mod.
    Battery part not so much but atomizer yes .
    For high end battery part as a beginer I would recomend VV or VW mod and stay a way from the mechanicals untill u perfect atomizers and recoiling , playng whit diferent materials and so on untill you are apsolutly shure what you are doing and know what you want to achive

    The variable wattage Vamo has a 5 amp switch but still can't handle below about 1.2 ohms.

    That always puzzles me; i wonder if anyone figures out what amperage the VAMO really can handle (as opposed to the advertised 5amp switch).

    Well i mean if i stack its a different story, but i dont like stacking.

    Seems to me you'd be much better off with that DNA20 mod rather than a mech.

    IMO you kinda have the cart in front of the horse here. I like high end mods that will last me a lifetime. That said, first you need to know what you want from the PV, and then find the mod that serves that purpose. Buying an APV with no idea of what you want, you may find yourself stuck with what the mod does instead of what you want.

    count on spending about 100$ if not more. even if you find a nice evic for 60-70$ you still have to come up with batteries and a charger. i bought a segeli zmax for about 110$ that came full boat. 2 18650 batteries,charger and a clearomizer. just add juice.
    you could always have some fun with it and build youre own

    I have a few high end mods. But I tend to use my electronic mods more than the mechanical ones. I get a consistant vape with the electronic ones, where the mechanical ones drop off pretty fast as battery life wears down.

    The variable watt (VW) Vamo with batteries and charger will run about $72 or less.

    When you are ready, you might consider a precise ela.

    ETA: I just reread and noticed one of your comments. Get a Sigelei mech instead. They are much more practical.

    Have you had any experience with it? It's definitely in my top 3
