    I'm not super concerned about capacity, I was more thinking about size. I know some of the batteries are slightly thinner in diameter and/or height, and was thinking a smaller battery might help for that mod. So far, I'm just making sure I am very careful with the battery cap, and that I'm not overtightening it. Seems to be working out so far. Oddly, the pico is one mod I don't take out of the house so I know it's not rattling around in there... :) Thank you for the info though.

    Not sure about different brands' 18650 sizes, Anna, since they ALL appear to be listed as the same size...:shock:

    [Don't forget...if your Pico has started to "injure" your 18650's...Pico's are always on SALE somewhere...for eg...]

    Since I like my OBS Engines and Nano's, and they do eat up the batteries, I'm going to have to try one of these. $28 on FT, $35 with the 21700 battery..
    I love my Pico 25's.. this should fit right in!

    Bigger mods than the original Pico are super abundant. In fact most mods are bigger than the Pico and that's exactly why I don't use any of them day to day.

    I (finally) got my Eleaf Invoke today, and it's barely bigger than the Pico. It's a tiny bit taller and a couple mm thicker. The Pico 21700 will most likely be bigger than the two-18650 Invoke. I see Little point in getting the bigger Pico.

    I've been eyeing that Invoke, but will hold out for more real-people reviews of it. Looks like a winner! I gotta admit, though, that I am digging the green Pico 21700. :wub:

    Width varies a smidge, not as bad as length though.
    That came to light two years ago with the 25R being a mil or so short and rebooting the DNA Reuleaux if set down too firmly.
    Oops.

    Can't edit and that was supposed to be a reply, with quote, to gerrymi's comment about cell sizing.
    Grrr.

    From an "e-cig deals" site...

    I’m still regularly using a lot of the products I mentioned last year! Please keep in mind that this is all in the name of fun. Despite what some people may think, I don’t get loads of free products in the mail every day. I’m a consumer, just like you. Out of everything I’ve purchased this year, these just happen to be my personal favorites. I’m not saying they’re the BEST products on the market; in fact, everything on my list has its share of flaws. But, when you really like something, the flaws can be forgiven…right?

    Honorable Mention: GeekVape Aegis. If you need a solid device that can really take a beating, this is it. I’m very impressed with the build quality of this thing. It’s both rugged and classy at the same time. Pair it up with your favorite single-coil atty, and I think you’ll have a winning combo. It has actually replaced my iStick Pico as my favorite on-the-go device.


    GeekVape Aegis 100W

    The Aegis is significantly larger than both the Pico and the Invoke, though. Not in the same category at all.

    Just wanted to report back my experience with Fasttech. They were one of the only places to have a coupon that worked for anything on New Year's Day (10% off). So I ordered a Pico 75w from them for $23.25 shipped.

    Ordered on January 1, shipped January 4, received January 22. So not bad. Took about 3 weeks. I haven't tried it, and don't plan on trying it. Just kinda an OCD thing. I like keeping it sealed until I need it.

    One thing I did do was cut a slit on the packaging and checked the authenticity/security code. I had read through google searches that Fasttech was known for removing the stickers a few years ago because they aren't an authorized dealer, but mine showed up with the code intact. Everything checked out authentic, and it was the first and only check of the code. So I'd say that was a pretty good first experience with Fasttech.

    I'm not really active anymore. Got the mod I've used for the past 2 years, with the tank I've used for the past 3 years, with the juice that has been my ADV for 3 years. I've got spares of the mod and the tank, 240ml of my ADV, and enough koh gen do to last me 10 years.

    I'm actually not as concerned about a backup as I was before because there appears to be Chinese manufacturers still making clones of them, plus the Pico 25 and Pico Mega if absolutely necessary. In the end, it's just a box mod. I would deal with something else if I had to. But I'm glad to have a spare.

    Yea...but...but...IF there's anything "wrong" with it...it's 352% easier to get it replaced in the "warranty period"...than when the warranty has expired...:shock:

    Is it possible to "force" the Pico NOT to initiate the draw with the max watts (75) when I set it in TC SS mode ?
