My first experience with the e-cig was the NPro starter kit. After a couple of days with it, I realized I'd (almost accidentally -- since I wasn't actually thinking it would work at all and certainly didn't expect I'd stop smoking analogs as a result of trying it) finally happened upon the means to end my smoking habit/addiction. True to my nature, I began researching and found this forum. After watching numerous Youtube videos and reading threads here, I ordered a manual-switch Joye 510. The 510 was okay, but I didn't like the fact that the atomizer quickly felt too hot to hold. After more research, I decided to try the 901. Since I was a bit tired of constantly changing the 510's batteries, I ordered the Riva 901. The 901 felt like a huge step up from the 510. I was happy. But I kept reading about the 801 and felt more and more curious. Finally, I gave in and ordered one -- just to see if there was anything to the longer atomizer. And I'm completely amazed. The 801 feels like another step up. I love the long, cool vapes, and I'm amazed that it delivers the tastes of the expensive, designer juices I'm hooked on even better than the 901. So, here I sit, happily vaping away the hours on a DSE 801, wondering just how it came to be that the majority of vapers seem to prefer the 510 over the 801 (or even the 901, for that matter). Since I'm so new to vaping, I just had to throw the question out there. Perhaps someone that's been around will be able to enlighten me!
