    ego's and riva's are very popular dencent battery life and a nice hit, the volt is more cigarette like battery life isn't as good but it has a decent hit, good luck on your vaping journey:vapor:

    Yeah, the eGo's and Riva's have up to 1000mAH batts now, and they even make an eGo 1000mAH passthrough that you can vape while charging then unplug and go.

    I have been using the Kgo from Hoosier for the past several days and have been very impressed. As much as I like my Riva 1100Mah, these have just a little stronger hit and flavor.

    It might help if we knew what you had previously. Also tell us what you're other words...what didn't work for you with ecigs? What did you find yourself missing about them?

    I'm a box mod guy, better battery life options so...
    best battery life
    Big Daddy from Ken's box mods 2x18650 vari volt or 3.7 ver, sturdy case, large. Still gets daily use.

    Tekk mod, haven't used, 2x18650, vari volt, usb charged/pass-through, features are compelling but read that its flimsy plastic

    Best all around
    My favorite REO Grand - bottom fed, good battery life 1x18650, convenient juice use and refill, all mechanical, nearly indestructible, sells fast on classifieds

    Seriously look at the REO it has been a game changer for me. I stopped carrying a whole extra pv kit as backup, just an atty back in the glove box.

    Good luck and welcome back

    The Ego family is one of the most popular. You can also buy adapters to use atomizers designed for other ecigs, not that you will ever actually need them. You can get the Riva 510 lite bundle from E-Liquid and Electronic Cigarette Shop - Category Listings for $29.95. Click the 20% off icon at the top left of the page.

    Boge cartomizers are also very popular for Ego.

    if your going for cheaper mods (pvs) here is a great one that can use an 18650 or you can stack batteries for more volts

    Maxi Roughstack V2 Tumbled Finish
    heres a 3.7v battery that will work Protected 18650 Battery, 2400 mah here is a charger TrustFire TR-001 Lithium Ion Battery Charger

    or you can stack 2 rcr123a batteries for 6.4 volt vaping.

    if price isnt such a big deal I would reccomend this The Prodigy V3.1 you can order a whole 'kit' so it comes with batteries and a charger. if price REALLY isnt a problem and you want to vary your voltage easily I would reccomend this ProVari Variable Voltage Ecig: Best Variable Voltage E Cig Available!

    Now if you want to drip (Best option in my opinion its where you litterly drip 3 or so drops of juice right into the atomizer and vape) I would reccomend this New COV Dual Coil Atomizer or any of the atomizers at Maintenance if you dont want to drip try a cartomizer, I would recomend these GotVapes NEW DIAMOND DualCoil XL 1.5ohm 1.6ml 510 Clearo - 5PK [GV-diamond-dualcoilXL] - $11.95 :, E-cigarette Supplies - Atomizers Cartomizers Mods Juice and more or 306 High Performance Low Resistance 1.8 ohm cartomizers in Black or NEW Royal Smokers CE3 Smoky 2.4 ohm

    the best juice on the planet is from and my favorite flavor is pinkspot Pink Spot E-Liquid Refill

    also is amazing (bounty hunter, I just bought 130ML of this)

    More questions? feel free to msg me!

    edit: also I would reccomend using a box mod because it holds so much juice. I WOULD say go with reogrand from but he never has them in stock and you probably want to order sooner so I would say go with this GLV-3 Electronic Cigarette [GLV-3] - $195.00 : Electronic Cigarettes and E-Liquid - Great Lakes Vapor a bit pricy but I think its work it

    and the reason im not saying ego like evyone else is because it CAN short out, the charger can stop working, the battery life is not as good. Altho egos are really great devices (I own 4 or 5) If your trying to quit again, you want something 100% dependable :p

    here is my little collection
    from left to right

    Reo Grand, Prodigy v3.1, Blue Ego, Kgo, Kgo, White Ego Passthru, Ego-T, Icon 1.1, Reo Mini

    the atomizer/cartomizers in pick from left to right

    #1 Ikenvape 901 with Empiremods drip shield and cherry vape stainless steel drip tip, #2Ikenvape Mini 801, #3 Ce2 Fluxomizer, #4 306 with cannon drip tip, #5 not sure, #6 510 from ikenvape, #7 510 from ikenvape, #8 306 (cisco), #9 901 from ikenvape

    the drip shield on the Reo Grand is 100% pointles, I just like the look <.<

    I agree with you on the eGo. This is would be an excellent step up from anything like a 510/808/901.

    If you want a big battery mod, I recommend a silver bullet by Will accept a variety of battery sizes.

    If you want to stay with a smaller mod, I recommend a kgo. They can be purchased at They are a little higher voltage but kick like a mule. One battery will last you all day.

    Without knowing what you used in the past that didn't work for you and why, hard to give advice. I'm a vv mod person myself, I use a Darwin, provari and a 5v glv3. Until I went up in voltage from 3.7v devices I still craved. But, everyone is different.

    I would highly recommend a REO. No muss nor fuss. No carrying around bottles of juice, batteries, and cartos. Batteries last for a while and it performs like a champ.
