    Im a bit on the fence about this one, button placement is putting me off.

    Anyone got one yet?

    I'm afraid if I had lost vape type money, I wouldn't be spending it on a pod. Disclaimer: (For a pod) it looks rather nice.

    Don't have one, but I am definitely interested. Most sites I see are now selling the mod only, and pods separately, and not all colors. I'll wait a bit for the Blue/New Zealand Abalone full kit to be on the market.

    I read somewhere that they were not going to sell these as kits in the USA due to the tariff situation. It's spendy for a mod but I kinda of want one. it's Shiny and you know that's the only reason to buy stuff......... Doh

    Do you plan on finger firing or thumb firing it? I could see why they put the firing button where they did. As moving it up further would complicate things inside and probably raise the price up even further. I think they have already hit the highest price that they can go and still have decent sales. Just my :2c:.

    Sure you would. You'd be buying those 250C mods and saying now I really need to checkout that Replay mode on that Orion pod. Click to order here. :)

    VaporDNA has them in stock and was able to get one today. So far so good, much better than any pod I’ve tried and doesn’t need high nic ejuice.

    Main first impression is how small this sucker is.

    Are you using the 0.25 ohm or 0.5 ohm with lower nic juice?

    In store only .25 ohm was available so that is what I'm starting with...... I'm going to go into eScribe and crank it up a bit to see if the vape gets even better.

    I have some DIY 16mg custard in it and I'm getting exactly how it should taste. Even the guy in the store said not to use a high nic juice in it and think they are right. The coil is HUGE compared to all the other pod systems out there and boosts to 40watts so might even try mixing some 12mg to see how that goes.

    Oddly I ordered the blue one on their website last night with 6 packs of .5 ohm but will have to wait until Wed/Thur for them to arrive. I'm sure the .25 will drain the battery much harder than the .50 - my thought is the .5 will be the best mix between flavor and battery life.

    Thumb, but i like it to be high enough so the mod sits on my little finger. I know from the Gusto, a short mod can be annoying to use long term without that extra support.

    Think button placement is dictated by the board, but could be worked around with a daughter board.

    I don’t mind it at all. Based on your post after this, the mod is so small it will be hard to have it rest on your little finger.

    Okay, I hate to be "that guy" but I have to ask...any possibility of rebuilding or rewicking the pods? It just seems like a huge waste to toss the drip tip/afc/pod each time I need a new one. If I could rebuild on this one I think that would justify paying a little more for the chipset but it seems like the cost of pods would be crazy expensive when you tack on the money spent up front on the device itself.

    I don't think you can get inside the pod without destroying it....

    If these pods indeed last as long as reviews are saying it will be a non-issue to me - upwards of a month for a $5 pod is a great deal IMHO. If they can produce a pod like the breeze 2 that would be AMAZING.

    Actually, they are only $3.15 each at Eciggity using their standard TENOFF coupon. And yes, you can pop the bottom of the pod apart and rebuild them if you are up to it. But at those prices for a pod, just seems easier getting another pod. Todd Reviews says he is getting 2 months plus per pod.

    Thanks for the info! I just watched Todd's review and it looks like he ended up having to saw it in half just to get inside so that's a bummer. Three bucks isn't too bad I guess for replacements though. Either way, I'm really tempted to give this a shot based on what I've seen.
