    Wow. Um. Okay. So in another thread talking about the eVic I joked that Joyetech should just give it its own App Store. Because that's kind of ridiculous, right? A PV with its own App Store? Ha ha ha!

    Ha ... ha.

    Crap. Me and my big mouth.

    So, like ... yeah. There it is. The Janty MiD. All the goodies of the eVic, smaller, stacked 16340s/123As, no screen, and downloadable pay-to-play upgrade modules. And a social ecosystem. Did I mention the social ecosystem? It has a social ecosystem. And a joystick.

    A JOYSTICK.

    Good? Bad? Over-engineering taken to its logical extreme conclusion? I dunno. I can't decide if I think the MiD could be the greatest thing since parachute pants or the vaping equivalent of the half-pound Reese's cup.

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    I'm speechless.... intrigued.... beguiled..... and anxious as all get out to see one of these things..... glad I opted for the Vamo 'cos my the time I might be able to afford an eVic, I might wanna check this out. The whole variable power through a puff thing has me utterly spellbound..... this must be reviewed! I'll be looking forward to it!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Now they have to build an ecig into my playstation controller...lolololololol.

    I do think the eVic has a rotatable portion which would work like a joystick for left/right.

    Can you imagine... auto updating your status to say what your vaping at what voltage on what resistance.... :blink:

    Well, I don't have a line on the MiD at the moment, nor the Vamo. I do have an eVic scheduled to come my way when it arrives though, so there's that.

    I dunno. I'm a serious gadget geek, but even the MiD has me simultaneously scratching my head and going "Do I think that's cool? It looks cool. It's got an absurd plethora of features. But is it too much?"

    It's kind of like -- if I can gamer-geek out for a moment -- Fallout 3 vs. New Vegas. I loved Fallout 3. Then New Vegas came out and I got all excited, and then found that they took the whole "grab bits of scrap and make stuff" concept taht was pretty simple and had a limited set of objects that could be combined to make things and totally built it out into this ridiculously fiddly thing where there were a million things you could collect and make things out of and recycle and stuff and it just turned me right off because I don't want to be bothered with such absurd minutiae, I just want to play a damn game, not scrounge for 4 different components to make a single bullet.

    Yeah, but the ring on the eVic at least makes sense. It replaces the up/down buttons already common on many mods. A full-on 5-way joystick though could conceptually be good, but might also be awkward. Like the ability to modulate your voltage/wattage in realtime mid-puff by waggling the joystick while it's pressed down. I just want to vape, not play juice pong.

    And Twitter.

    This is actually a pretty elegant interface. It should be a LOT more ergonomic and easy to use than the ridicuous, maddening multi-click BS that APVs like Provari and ZMax use.

    Pretty cool idea, if you're a sort of OCD tweeker who is REALLY interested in your personal vaping habits and want to monitor things like "puff count" and real battery life.

    But I'll admit, I like the e-Vic better, because it has a display on the mod, and you don't have to plug it in to read the important data real-time.

    If they made the software for these units to run on the Mac natively, I'd be seriously considering getting them both though...

    It freakin' well can save "vaping profiles" at their community which are author stamped and if edited retain your original credits!? Wut-tha!?--

    So if you find the PERRRRFECT setting for a certain juice, it's forever credited to you I guess? and future edits credit the editor, but still credit you with the original profile..... this is craaaaziness....

    I'm a little freaked out by the whole RGB button joystick (customizable smartclicks and colors!) ..... and no screen.... I'd have to see, but with all the things this thing seems ready to do, I wonder if it would be like trying to operate a smartphone from memory if the screen didn't work..... anyway, it's very intriguing!

    This is the bit that potentially could bother me most about it. Without a proper screen you have to remember what colours you set to what profile settings and stuff. "Wait, does mauve mean hot? Or is that the profile that pulses at 30Hz and 10W for 2 seconds before fading to an 8W 200Hz pulse? Damnit! I knew I should have used teal."

    My feelings exactly.... I already have enough to remember!!-- whose texts and calls flash what color and play what tune, which msging service makes what bleep, how to program the VCR (yes, I still have a VCR, but no, I don't actually use it).... and of course, where I put my keys..... do I need to memorize an APV profile now too? I can see me typing up a cheat sheet and carrying it everywhere until I lose it while I'm out and don't even know how to vape until I can get home and print a new copy lol

    Did they ever fix the janty neo cartos???... I tried the first versions and they were not so hot, but had potential. Were any upgrades performed?

    I'm definitely excited about the eVic. That has a crapload of features too, but it seems pretty well-balanced between feature set and relative simplicity.

    Im most excited about more info on the bigger screen. My biggest gripe with provari and vmax devices is the endless button clicking just to see the most important info. Looking forward to getting my vamo which seems pretty intuitive and easy to check basic info and then getting the evic when it comes out. Time to retire some of my mods with flakey buttons.

    Yeah, that's going to flip my buttons too. I love my Provari but wish I didn't have to go through all the clicky clicky to get anywhere. The eVic has some serious potential for great features, and I can't wait for it to get here.

    It is definitely Christmas time for all gadget geeks like myself. (Oh wait...)

    While it's great that all these new mods are coming out, I wish the other equation (atty's, clearo's, tanks, carts) gets some lovin' as well.
    Where's the magnetic conduction heating element or the fission powered laser atomizer with micro injection juice system? I've almost rubbed my fingerprints off rolling ss wicks for the past 3 weeks! :)

    But seriously, my next purchase is going to be a provari. I need something that is solid and reliable to serve as a baseline. (Didn't want to say 'it just works' to avoid fruit based company comparisons). I still think it is expensive but thanks to all these new products, the market should hopefully correct itself sooner than later.

    The thing is $110 PLUS another $50 if you want real-time VV/VW and 1-8v instead of 1-6 plus a few other useless items.

    Screw that.

    For $110 it better give me all the options and shine my shoes.

    I'm not a techie or a gadget geek, so I'm just getting dizzy from shaking my head :confused:

    I'm really interested in hearing the reviews about them when they land in this part of the world though. My fear is that I'd need a 1-800 # to the Vape help desk

    One of the design features that I really like is being able to charge the battery with a USB cable, but also having the option of swapping out the battery if you want.

    I also like that the eVic can use connectivity, but connectivity is not an essential part of the operation like the MiD.

    I still haven't forgiven engineers for removing gauges from our cars. I like all the useful information I can get. The battery gauge is very useful, in my book, and it has a digital number display and the analog style indicator. How cool is that?!

    I feel the Vamo (eGo APV, Eagle, 3V, whatever they are calling it) is the new baseline for features, performance, and price. VW has proven that it adds to the convenience and simplicity of operation. When ProVari comes out with the new version with built in charging, VW, OLED screen, and connectivity, then they will be able to justify their pricing due to their quality standards.

    It's still early in the game and these things are always Great before we get them. This will be interesting to see how things shake out.
