    Hello!
    I have two ego-c twist batteries en route and could use some help for what kind of attys would be best for VV dripping on the twists.

    I know that a lot of people might tell me to go the carto/clearomizer route, but I have not enjoyed multiple attempts with either in the past. I know there have been improvements with both technologies, but I just happen to really enjoy dripping.

    I have some standard and LR 510 attys and drip tips, but what are the recommendations for other attys for VV dripping?

    I use hybrid 510 attys or 901 ikvs with a drip shield or hybrid 306 attys and a dca when I don't feel like messing with my rebuildable gg dripping atty.. I don't have a twist but I rock those on my provari when I want to drip with great success. The gg drip atty is just about the same size as a ego battery

    Any atty that has a 510 connection will work so it's mostly preference, just stay away from LR with the Twist. You can use LR but your voltage range will be limited and it's harder on the battery. 306 is probably the most well known for dripping, 510 is popular, HH357 is a great atty if you don't mind spending the money.

    If you want to go rebuildable I recently got the Phoenix and it performs awesome, holds a lot of juice and it's affordable if you shop around, prices seem to vary widely on it right now.

    Thanks, sporty. I know I have only been using the tip of the dripping iceberg, and will have to do some research about hybrid attys. I know about drip shields, but wasn't able to locate what the gg drip atty is. I was on the COV site, but maybe they don't have it?

    I will check out the HH357 and Phoenix. Thanks for the suggestions.

    I personally am a huge fan of the 510/306 hybrids. Amazing flavor and vapor. Used them on my twist a lot. COV and GV, GotVapes carry them. I would get the 2.0 ohm version. IMO.

    Drip Shields

    and at cov, consider this:

    510 Hybrid Atomizer 2.0 ohm Universal

    It's 2.0Ω so you would be at the high end with the twist at 4.8v, so 4.4-4.6v would be best. Well built hybrid - lost of metal mesh to hold the ejuice.

    There's a 2.5Ω 2 pack at vapage - who makes them:

    AMG Hybrid Universal (2-pack)

    The gg dripping atty is under the gg Ody section. I use mine so much I bought a spare. Also Kent posted a great hybrid atty.

    Thanks. The 'gold universal' is intended and works great with bottom feeders but it's also a great dripping atty. Compares with cisco's stuff. Both have longevity for lr attys - 3 months + for me so far. And I've used a dozen ciscos (regular 306lrs - not his hybrids) and two 'gold universals' from Vapage - on both the reo-mini and with an eGo-c 'upgrade' passthrough - which holds a constant 4.0-4.2v while plugged in - with these and a drip shield for dripping only.

    The silver hybrid from Vapage is also good but I like the gold a bit better.

    That's actually wrong. The twist has the most range available if you're using a 1.9Ω atty/carto (Rideal = Vmax(4.8)/Imax(2.5)), assuming it's actually a 2.5A limit……Steeljan's video seemed to imply it was more like 2.6A in practice……putting it right in the ideal range for LR stuff around 1.7-1.8Ω. Dual Coil stuff doesn't work well on it because it just won't push enough power.

    I use 1.7-1.8Ω stuff and get just about the full range of adjustment and use it. 2.4Ω stuff is noticeably cooler when maxed out.

    As for atomizers………I don't like the 510 dripping atomizers from VaporAlley. My favorites so far have been some generic 901 atomizers……but I'm just getting into the world of better ones.
