    It's about that time! Here's what we're giving away this week:

    1 x Koopor Mini 60W TC Box Mod
    1 x EHPro eTank S2
    5 x SVC Replacement Coils
    2 x 18650 Batteries
    1 x Charger
    100mL of Any E-Liquid


    To be eligible to win this week, we want to know: Is anyone out there still using mechanicals?

    For me personally, I still prefer mechs. They fire every time and last forever, and it's the cheapest way to vape high wattage/subohm. However, regulated mods have safety features, show you important information on the screen, and can have some nifty features like temp control and custom wattage profiles.

    So what do you think? Mechanical or regulated?

    Thanks everyone, and GOOD LUCK!!

    Regulated for added safety with subohm

    I have a bunch of mechs but no longer use them. I've moved on. :)

    I hold on to them though. :vapor:

    I have my very first mech. mod in the desk drawer at work. I have added a kick to it and it serves as my backup for work incase something happens to my VTR. it's also a telescopic so any size battery will work in it.
    I do have 2 new mechs in the vape stuff box. I have these incase we are hit with a EMP attack and everything electronic stops working.

    Thanks Crowedude for the great contests.

    I still use my nemesis mech once in a while, but I prefer to have all the information and safety of my regulated devices, so those get much more use these days. I'd be surprised if i ever buy a new mech mod, but it is nice to have at least one...that way you know you will always have something that works. Thanks for the contest!

    mostly using regulated, but i do use my el cabron mech box daily - it's part of the wake and vape ritual... have several mechs stored, but other than the el cabron, using regulateds almost exclusively during the day

    Definitely regulated. I like having as much control and information as possible.

    No.

    I don't think I've used a mechanical in over 6 months and currently don't have any (sold them). I've grown very fond of wattage adjustment.

    However, I do have a custom e-cigar coming soon that will be mechanical, but that's a bit different.

    And why would I not use my old mech mods. heck, i still use my old Vision spinners as well. Just because new stuff comes out does not mean, all of us can afford to keep upgrading our stuff!! Esp when it still works great and it still keeps us off the old smoking cigs habit.

    I mean, yes a new modern device with all the features device would be nice but for us older folks, we have to watch where our money goes.

    Thanks for the chance to maybe push myself into the modern vaping world, but really, I am fine with the old school stuff....

    Plus i can always use more juice.... laughs.....

    Mech mods were never my thing and have never owned one. My son has an entire fleet of the things and I tried them but the bottom fire thing just isn't my style and if that is all there was in the vape world, I seriously doubt I would be vaping today.

    Have never tried tried a mech mod, but as far as owning one some day? I've learned to never say never when it comes to vaping!

    I have three mech mods, but haven't used them much lately. About a month Ago I used My Nemesis for some NET juice I had. But I've found I like regulated mods of the adjustability factor. I recently got My first Temp Control Mod and really like that. So Mech Mods probably are a thing of the past for Me, still gonna hold on to them just in case.

    Thanks @Crowedude654 & MadVapes for yet another awesome contest.
    Good Luck Everyone.

    I haven't used my Mechs in months now. Ever since I got a regulated box I have been converted. I enjoy the battery life and options too much to go back to Mechs for the comfort/ease of use factors.

    The higher power regulated mods have replaced the mech that I used to use, but I have always like regulated better. Being able to see and adjust the levels is a big thing for me.

    TY Crowedude654 for another great contest!
