    What is the best personal vaporizer? I have *The Joker-AV* from Vaprlife an I love it. But I was wanting to buy a back up PV. Which do you think would be the best to go with?

    The one in your hand that keeps you off cigarettes. :)

    I don't know what the best would be. However, I have tried the Blu, the Sideshow, and the EGO. The Ego is my favorite. The battery life and "smoke" consistency are amazing. However, it does not look like a cig, and for some people that is important. I think it is really personal preference as to the best one.

    Yep, that about sums it up. I'll list what I've had, and what I liked thought if it will help you out.

    Njoy npro My first ecig. Worked ok to get me started. Very high price on atty's though, and no battery life foe a heavy smoker.

    Greensmoke second. Was a step up imo, but not much. The cartomizers seemed better than the carts the npro came with, but about the same deal. Replacement parts were through the roof money wise.

    Puresmoker protege(discontinued) Ahh my first mod. ran on a 14500 battery, and still does a great job a year later. Battery lasted most of the day and gives a nice vape.

    Totally Wicked Srew Driver MKII MY all day vape for the most part. Awesome small mod. Gives great vape, and the battery life last most of the day as well.

    Chuck I've had mixed feeling about my chuck. Worked great, until switch dies. Jeff is a good guy though and will replace them. The thing hits like a tank with the 18650 battery in it, but I was no fan of 6v

    Kaji Journeyman from RnRmanufacturing This thing is completely awesome. Bottom feeder, holds 3ml of juice, and the 18650 battery last a day or two depending on usage. I haven't put this down since I got it lol, it's that good. I carry the screwdriver in the car, and this at my desk. Awesome combo imo. Never have to worry about being without due to a failure.

    Hope this helps out!!

    I was a pack a day Kool smoker. So far I have found the Joye eGo to be reliable for an all day vape, and powerful enough to deliver good throat hit and overall satisfaction. In order to make it as convenient as an analog, I'm using it with Boge 501 2 ohm cartomizers. I think this combination works well.

    What roxics said The one in your hand that keeps you off cigarettes

    IMO its the REO's Bottom fed juice mods

    REO mini uses a 3ml bottle for juice and runs on a 14500 battery has a standard 510 connection

    REO Grand uses a 6ml bottle for juice and runs on a 18650 and has a standard 510 connection

    There are so many good devices it would be hard to say what is the best since personal preference plays a big if not huge roll in determining that,.

    I love the bottom fed mods like and the Ali. no mess no fuss vaping.. the reos go on sale again tomorrow..
    once I have used these I will never go back to regular ecigs..

    I need to check out the REO mod.
    @Currinhall, mods make a huge difference to. Many people hate the Blu, but with several mods it works great. The batteries just die fast. I would just get one to start with and learn how to mod that model, and then figure out your personal preferances, then buy a second once you have more experience.

    I'm with you on the 6 volt comment. You didn't state that you tried a 5 volt mod or a variable volt device. I think you might find you really like this level. If you don't want to put the money into a VV, you might want to look at one of Ken's 5 volt box mods. They do a nice job.

    I totally forgot to mention that I have a 5v pass thru for my protege. LOVE it with an 801 atty. Gives a very unique hit. I very well may get a VV sooner or later. You know how this hobby goes lol. You can only go so long without picking up something new.

    I found a significant difference between a pass-through and a 5v mod. The PT was a cheap one which might have been part of the problem. But quite a few members on here stated the same thing that a PT didn't perform as well as a good 5v mod. I'm also considering biting the bullet on a VV.

    My favorite PV so far is the Precise P16 from Super-t Manufacturing. This is such a personal preference question, there really is no right answer. I agree with roxics!

    Good to know. I've seen some sharp VV devices as of lately. Might just take the plunge.

    There really is a pretty simple answer to this question-

    the best PV is the one that is so good you buy a second one as a backup.
    Even if its expensive.

    In my case, the Golden Greek Telescoping Storm with AVS.

    Yes, I could have tried another mod- and there a LOT of them that look great and have many fans and cost less as well- but the first one was so good I really don't see the need.

    I know there are a lot of other great devices that people have "collections" of too, and I really don't see any point in saying "Yours is better than mine" or "Mine is better than yours."

    There are enough great devices that are all slightly different that anyone should be able to find their own Best PV and be correct.
    Even if it is not the same choice as mine. ;)

    I've done lots of research. The Joye Ego is very popular. That's the one I ordered. Long battery life. I got a kit from cignot for about 59.00 Two batteries, two atomizers, wall charging unit, usb plug charger, some prefilled carts 5 I think. Nice box too. I'm sure there are some more things in the kit I just cant remember them all.

    I prefer the Joye eGo. I have all the different sizes (listed in my signature), but I like the shorter 650mAh battery the best, even though the 900 and 1000mAh batteries last a few hours longer.

    Here are a couple of sites where you can find the popular Joye eGo 650mAh kits:

    Liberty Flights in CA - Joye eGo kits

    LiteCigUSA in PA - Joye eGo kits

    Liberty Flights has a 20% discount if you use the coupon code of ECF or click the 20% discount link at the top left of the main page.

    I'd recommend anything with a larger battery.

    I started out with manual and automatic 901's and found them horribly lacking. When it produced vapor, it was satisfying but the batteries died so quickly that I spent more time charging them than vaping on them. Which eventually resulted in me smoking analogs more often than charging them.

    I moved up to a DSE-905 (Screwdriver) and loved it. Being able to swap out batteries and keep them charged was good until I killed my spare battery. Even with one active, I still was vaping nearly all the time.

    I've ordered a Bartleby recently. I found that I'm almost always near my computer and a passthrough would be great, but having my vaporizer and passthrough in the same device, with removable, standardized and cheap but powerful batteries is the perfect combination.

    Just to let you know, the dse 905, and the SD MKII are two completely different devices. Have had a totally wicked SD MKII for over a year now, and purchased two dse 905's for pals last year. Not being snippy, just wanted to clear that up for the new guys that may see.

    I'm a highly techical guy and I appreciate the correction. Yes, the MKII is a different device, but IIRC, the DSE-905 is a mass-produced version of the original Screwdriver Mod. Several vendors refer to the 905 as "Screwdriver" in their product descriptions. I meant that as more of a description of the type than an endorsement of a specific model (Screwdriver MK-II eni).
