    Good Morning Everyone,

    Being a Newbie to this forum, I guess that I'm only allowed to post my questions in here.

    I've been doing a lot of research on this site looking for a new PV. From everything that I've read, I had it narrowed down to just 2, the Reo Mini and the R&R Manufacturing Ali'i. Out of these 2, I'm definitely leaning a lot more towards the Mini because of it's size and durability. Then I read about the new Reo Grande coming out, which has a lot more versatility in bottle size and battery configuration. But that is about all of the information that I could find out about the Grande. I skimmed through the Reo's Grand opening forum, but couldn't find much there with limited time to sift through all of the conversations.

    Does anyone have more specific details about the Grande?
    What are the dimensions compared to the Mini?
    Does anyone have any pictures of it?
    What colors will it be available in during the initial launch?

    Any information or assistance would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks - Sean

    It's built the same as the mini except it uses different batteries and it's larger. It uses a 6ml bottle instead of a 3ml bottle. If you're looking for a mod that will last all day without changing batteries or refilling your juice go with the Grand. If you want something small and sleek go with the mini just be prepared to carry extra batteries and juice if you're a heavy vaper.

    Per the thread which is about as long as the bible now:
    K dimensions I don't think I ever posted them Height minus the well 3-3/8 strong by 1 and 11/16 strong.strong is 1/32 for those of you that don't talk the talk.

    Colors are supposed to be same as mini except I think he said no blue. At initial launch I know he is planning for black and polished but think the other colors may be available as well.

    All the info you need is in the thread it just takes time, LOL, alot of time to find. I have a mini and absolutely love it and Robert's excellent customer service. It is one purchase I don't think any vaper would regret. And, yes, I'm getting a Grande too :)

    Oh and welcome to the forum and vaping. If you are just starting out you are headed in the right direction. I skipped over the 510s and 808s when I started too. Wanted an Ali'i or REO mini. Both are beautiful and excellent and backed by solid people. While waiting for them to be released I got an EGO and it too is a great starter device. The REO mini in my experience is very easy to use, no mess, well made, vapes GREAT, and is wonderful for the beginner or experienced vaper.

    Here is a photo of all three REO mods

    1. Wood REO 18650/6ml 2. REO Grand 18650/6ml 3. REO mini 14500/3ml

    All are wonderful mods. each has it place in my line up (REO Grand will me here soon)

    I have tryed both the REO and the Ali'i and IMO I find the REO mods better for me but each is to there own. I have more Photos if you would like to see the insid of the REO Mini. :)

    Thanks Everyone for your help! It was really nice to see a picture with them all together. Even though I was initially really leaning toward the Mini, I'm definitely going to try to get in on the opening launch of the Grande!

    I started with the Joye 510s almost 2 weeks ago, but quickly found that I need something better to help me kick the "analog" habit for good. I've been smoking just over a pack of Marlboros, per day, for over 15 years now. The Joye has helped quite a bit by getting me to cut down to smoking only 2 or 3 regular cigarettes daily. Being a Restaurant Manager, I'm usually on the go for about 10 to 12 hours each day,and I don't always have the extra time needed to switch the batteries and refill the juice cartridges. That is why I was looking for a PV which could survive being kept in my pocket, and would last the entire day without any extra fuss. From everything that I read, these aluminum REOs seem to be exactly what I'm looking for!

    Does anyone know if the Grande is still going on sale at 7pm (Eastern Time) on the 29th? Will this be through the ReosMods website?

    I started w/ an xhale 02 ecig and hated it. Now I have a REOmini and I love it. I looked through this forum religiously to find the perfect Vaping device...Any REOmod would be THE best bet!

    From everything that I've read in these forums over the past week, I'm sold on the REOs. I just REALLY hope that I'll be able to get one when they go on sale this week!

    By using the 510, I've cut down smoking regular cigarettes from just over a pack a day, to just over a pack a week. I would really like to fully quit using the "analogs", but it is just too difficult sometimes having to change batteries and cartridges when you have a very limited amount of time to sneak outside at work.

    Nice looking mod. Couple of questions about the mini: Does the connector use a reg 510 connector somehow screwed or otherwise mounted into the connector recess? Will juice leak down from the connector on the outside of the tube and if not what prevents that?

    Thanks!

    :)

    I prefer the REO GREAT because autonomy is much higher.
