    I prefer VW. Use clearomizers, RBAs and RDAs single and dual coil. Ohm range of .3 to 2.5 so far between the various setups. Have a couple 18350 mechs but don't use them much anymore. I like the ability of VW to change settings on the fly, the displays, knowing what how much battery power is left. The even output throughout a charge is great.

    I prefer variable mods most of the time. They are easier to use.

    Do you prefer mechanical mods or variable mods, and why?

    About 90% of the time I use VV/VW devices. I have tried and found the wattage that seems to provide me with the most flavor for my juice selections. I use vaping as an alternative to smoking so the equipment has to be reliable and to preform when I need it. I like the fact that I can monitor my battery level with a quick glance at the display screen. I have a ZMAXV2 or a Kmax+ that I carry to work daily. I have a VTR that I normally use when away from work. I use ProTank IIs with airflow controlers as my go to tanks. I wrap my own coils and use cotton wicking. I try to get a 2.1-2.3 ohm build on them. I have been trying out a kayfun clone when I'm at home. I did invest a good charger for my batteries. I have 18350s,18500s,and 18650s on hand. I can adjust the size of the Kmax+ quickly if I want a smaller equipment footprint. I do have a very inexpensive telescoping mechanical that I use sometimes when I'm relaxing and watching TV. I still use the kayfun with it.. I also have and use a inexpensive RDA for testing juice flavors. I still build the coils for it in that 2.1 -2.3 ohm range. I like to tell folks that if we have a EMP attack that my mechanical will be my go to device. Oh, I even have a EGO that is part of my fishing gear. Won't feel to bad if it takes a dunk in the water.

    Thanks once again MadVapes for an interesting contest and great prize package.

    I have both and use both. I don't build sub ohm coils, so the builds are around 1 to 1.8 mostly. The prize would be so much fun!
    Thank you for these great contests

    I still prefer easy, so I use a VV/VW mod with a tank. I also have RDAs, but they seem to be more work than worth.

    Something easy to fill and easy to use is what I am always looking for. Taste is important, but what I use is good enough until better tech comes around.

    I have ventured into mechs, but I feel more comfortable with variable. I don't sub ohm very often and I like the feedback of all the information I get from the variable mods as well. My everyday (lately) as been my new IPV 2x with kayfun or squape...all from MadVapes!

    Thanks for this contest and good luck to everyone!

    i prefer regulated mods. i guess you can say im spoiled. when i first got back into vaping, i bought an evic. it worked well except when i wanted to rebuild or wanted more power than the 11 watts it can produce. then i got a evic supreme with a 30 watt limit. then i got a sigelei for my birthday and im spoiled. i can use a mech if i built to how i like the flavor, but its more difficult to build exactly for that flavor and then stick with the flavor all day than it is to put my .4 ohm coil on the sigelei and adjust the power as needed.

    if they made a regulated mod that had the same king of power while still looking as nice as some of the mechs i want, id be all over it.

    I like them both...I like my mech mod because I love how I just use my little finger to fire it and my large tank fits perfect on it...I like my istick with an aspire nautilus also because it's little..but I make my own coils on the aerotanks and protanks so that is a plus there too..I also have a magma I like so I guess it all works good for me!

    In the morning when I'm sitting around on the computer I use my mechanical along with an old school 901 or 510 atty. This allows to to tweak the morning taste buds with a variety of flavors in the cart. As the day progresses and I'm not sitting around as much I switch my atty over to the iclear16 to enjoy a little freedom from the cart filling. As evening approaches I either stay with the iclear16 or switch to my Smoktech tank for a little couch potato time in front of the t.v. without the need to refill as often.

    I would have to say I like variable mods...........Not sure why though....but I do...I have one my the pc and use it sometimes when I want a different different I mean changes the taste of the same flavor I have in my puck mod....with the same tank...

    Currently, as a newbie, I have a VV. I am headed towards a VW Mod of some type when I get around to making that specific decision (1000 different directions). I can't see myself doing the rebuilding of the coils at this point, and hope simple satisfies.

    I started with an 1100mah single voltage ego with a smok t-dux. Then I got a nemesis mech and patriot rda that I run dual coils on at .8 - 1 ohm. I'm currently building a dna20 nes controller mod and am thinking about getting an aerotank. I don't have a basis for comparison as I've not owned a VV mod and have yet to complete my VW build, but I don't really have a preference either way, they both serve their purpose.

    I prefer variable mods over mechanical mods, because I like being able to adjust my voltage or wattage to what I am feeling. I have only used 1 mechanical mod so maybe i would feel different with a different kind, i dunno. Last week I finally got a MVP so I have been using that along with my dna 30 mod when my MVP is charging. I use my FBC tank and ARO tank with ohms from 2.0 to 2.4.
    Good luck everyone :) and thank you Madvapes for the contest!

    I prefer vv/vw mods although I have not tried a mech I would like to, tight vaping budget here. I prefer vw as I'm constantly adjusting the setting and I like the idea of circuit protection and it's easier to carry around a few different flavors in tanks. The Vamo V5 and clearos 1.5-2.8 ohms and under 12 watts is my go-to setup.

    I do prefer the variable mods. Hey, my simple iStick has resistance checking, fairly steady output thru the charge, and can charge with just a little cable. Very easy to use, 'specially for a beginner.

    I use the iStick 20w, getting a Beyang 30W any day now. The power Silo Lite, a few nautilusses (nautili?) and vivinova S glass tanks.

    A pair of Halo Triton VV is over a year old, but still working great.

    And my recent Cronus 26650. With the big tobh. Still learning how to use this beast. I did chuck some mondo clouds with my first build last night!!!

    I was on mechanicals, but have been switching over to DNA 40's. I have built a couple and I really like the temperature control I get. I can dial it in right to the sweet spot with the temp control. As far as attys go, I really like the flavor from my Magma setting around the house. While on the go I love the convenience of my Kayfun V4. Remember kids, don't drip and drive :)

    I have to say, being new to this and smoke free for a few weeks, I am very happy with my basic choices. I like vv/vw and like my MVP 2.0 and better my vv 4. Now that I used them both with a nautilus mini I am even happier! I have not tried a mech mod yet, nor have I tried dripping or sub ohming, but I'm sure both are just a matter of time. I agree 100% with the last poster that the great part of vv/vw is that I can adjust easily according to mood, need, time of day, etc.
    That my story and I'm sticking to it!

    I used to be a slightly sub ohm (0.8-0.9) RTA on a regulated mod vaper.
    Now I'm a sub sub ohm RDA on a Mech vaper. Dual or quad coils.
    My latest builds have been with triple twisted 28g

    I don't not have any experience with mechanical mods, but I'm certainly not opposed to using one. I'm currently using an iPV Mini with the Kangertech Subtank, and have found that I really enjoy the 0.5ohm head it comes with which facilitates the lung inhale much better. So, a nice mech-mod with a RBA on it would be pretty sweet.

    Thanks for the opportunity!
