    I'm currently using some 3.7 v units (the Icon, Tornado and the small Precise)
    always use a LR atty and dripping
    the maintenance and atty burn out problems are a bit of a head ache but I love the great taste and vapor production.

    Would a 5 or 6v mod be that much better?

    With the same attys, you will burn them more. A good equation to know is:

    Watts = volts*volts/ohms. Anything more than about 10 W is problematic for attys. 5V or higher with LR attys is almost certainly fast atty death, and not good vaping as it is too hot to keep wet.

    You list PVs that voltage regulate after the batt but before the atty, and only give about 3.2 V, not 3.7V. A cheap step up would be a "true" 3.7V PV, like a box mod or a Hello016. The added 0.5V is certainly noticeable, and it is still low enough that you could use LR attys.

    If you do want to try a 5V, you would be advised to use attys or cartos that have 3 ohms or more, like a Boge 510 carto or DSE510 attys. Or even higher resistance attys like Inhaler's 4+ ohms (come in several resistances). My 5V PT with 3.6 ohm cartos is about as much as I can handle in a vape, and even it is often too much, but that's just me. I like about 8W of vapage.
