    You may want to take a peek at Vapor Shark. I have two of them and they are great. If you have the bucks the DNA 250 is awesome. Plane Jane looks but the performance makes up for it. The Switch Box DNA 75 is cheaper but is still a very nice machine. Thinking about picking up a Hedron next. It's a reworked Wismec Reuleaux RX200S made out of better materials (no 510 issues). I have to say that I am really impressed with their stuff.

    My pico and pico squeeze are probably the best of the disposable grade I have and my 2-3 year old pico still has nice clicking no issue buttons.They always work like the day I got them.

    I’ve dropped my pico s over 20 times each and they just keep working.
    I may get a few more pico squeezes because they’re just a good,small,reliable mod and the price is unbeatable.
    I just don’t see many complaints on pico or squeeze version.

    I've been using an IPVd3 for ... 2 & 1/2 years now. Not a suggestion, just surprised I haven't had any issues since everyone else seems to.

    Silicon lottery of sorts? I'm feeling pretty lucky all of a sudden :banana:

    If you dont care about size. The rx200s has been bulletproof for me... but it never leaves the house. I've always liked sigs, never had a problem with them. But besides the aegis anything can break being dropped.

    I've pretty much put everything but my Geekvape Aegis down at this point. It's a really great mod, albeit a tad on the bulky side. But like someone else said, it's waterproof, dust proof, drop proof, etc. And I've inadvertently put all of that to the test at some point or another.

    I'm liking the VooPoo Drag. It's a two 18650 VW/VV/TC mod. I like that I can customize wattage and temp curves on the mod (no computer required). If you have a PC, then there's even more customizing possible.

    You can also run it in volt mode.

    I think they are around $45 to $60 online, depending if you want the fancy resin. Cheaper (a little bit) from China.

    They have good reviews.

    I was away last weekend and managed to drop both of the Pico Resins that I had with me on pavement... Neither one has any damage or scratches and both of the Crown Minis (with a vape band on each) are fine as well!

    Now, I love those little beauties even more. :wub:

    Sorry for your troubles. I must be very lucky (or you're extremely unlucky). I have several mods, anything from old eGos and Rivas to various Eleaf iSticks, Joyetech Evic mini, Vapor Flask Lite, a bunch of Innokins, a Defender, a Pico, a Wismec Presa, an Encom Voidray, a Kangertech mod, and a newly acquired Smoant Charon TS 218 touch screen (so I can't vouch for its longevity) and they all work flawlessly. Knock on wood.

    I only owned one "high-end" (expensive) mod, a ProVari mini 2.5, which I just sold because it didn't work with my new larger-diameters tanks anymore and didn't do TC.

    I really don't know what to tell you--I never had a mod that turned out to be a piece of crap. I don't know if I can say that I'm proud of my mods--they just work. :)

    Well, if you want a squonk mod that you can beat the hell out of, and still have it work - get a Reo. Don't take my word for it - watch this video by SuperXDrifter. He throws one off his balcony and then uses it for a hockey puck in his garage and it still works. The video is a hoot, and a testament to the durability of the Reo Grand.

    Thanks Super :)

    Pico and Pico squeeze have stood test of time for me.
    Buttons stay clicky and consistently fire even after being dropped 20 times each.
    There’s the reo grand that’s probably the most durable,is repairable,and if you grow tired of it,the classifieds bring a very good price with reo grands,but China made disposables might bring 20% of what they cost new.
    My eleaf 100TC has stood up with test of time but I prefer the Pico over it because it’s much smaller plus it’s not a sqounk mod.

    I have a Squeeze but haven't gotten around to build it yet (I have Hadalys). How do you build yours? I'm flavor over clouds, so what would be a good build/resistance for that with the Squeeze's limitations? I have zero mechanical experience and looking for a good place to start.

    I have high end and low end mods. If I'm inside I'll get out the Alien 220W, Reuleaux 200s, Provari, or another higher priced mod.

    For everything else (cutting grass, woodworking, out and around, etc) I'm vaping an iStick Pico 40W or 75W, or one of my other under $30 mods. If it falls out of my pocket and gets run over by the lawn mower I can replace it on sale for $25 or so.

    The most reliable mod I've owned is an old Kylin clone and a close second is an Infected mod (authentic). The only reason the Kylin wins is age, I've had it for years, I bought another before FT discontinued them, just because the first one looks so hammered.

    VW mods are like cell phones, if you get a year to two you're doing really good. The only VW's I'd call close to bullet proof are the Vapor Sharks and the Billet Box. Great designs, materials and warranties but you are going to pay for them.

    Oh by the way... thanks for the heads up on the Hedron. Until this post of yours I hadn't heard of it, so after I read your post I did some research and it is now my sons Christmas gift... the rx200 is my sons favorite mod.. so I'm happy for this find. Thank you!

    One of the biggest mistakes new vapers make is tightening down the tank too much and pushing down the center pin. I'd try prying up the center pin a bit and see if you can bring your mods back to life.

    My first Pico 75W (black case) began to allow the top cap to rise from battery spring pressure. The screw holes were stripped a little. A field fix with a sliver of thin cardboard as a bushing in the screw hole fixed that. It's been a year now and no sign of a repeat issue. The silver one hasn't exhibited that problem. The 40W iStick still looks and works like new, but it only goes with me here and there.

    Rotating mods evens out the wear and tear.
