    Exactly, same hit beginning of the battery until the end. But there's still nothing like a pull off a .1 ohm coil with a fresh battery.

    I used mechs and single voltage mods way back when I started vaping. I much prefer regulated and temperature control now. I do still have a number of mechs that are still useable, a Rough stack for example..:)

    I don't have a mech mod and never tried one, but...
    There's just something in them that fascinates me. Even though I'm a tech guy and data freak, the simplicity and the looks of mechs are alluring.
    Was watching some reviews of Chillum Tantra and it's straight up mod porn. No other way to call it. Simple, effective and killer looks. :)
    Only problem is that I'll never be able to afford something like that, haha!

    Anyways... I already have a Koopor Mini. Lovely little device.
    In case I'm selected, I'll PIF.

    Thanks @Crowedude654 !

    I have both, but use a regulated because I can dial it in to the perfect flavor and hit.

    My daily carry is one regulated box with an RTA, and one mech with an RDA.

    At home, I'm mostly on a mech, with a regulated box just an arm's length away...

    Like so many others have stated, I like the info, safety, and control offered by a regulated device, although they aren't always as safe as people think...

    I like mechs for their reliability and simplicity, though. And, unless you choose to ignore the warnings, mechs can be nearly as safe as regulated.

    I used battery ecigs my first couple years vaping, and have used mech mods ever since, with the Galileo being my mainstay for the last year or so. I also use the Gripper when I want to vape less conspicuously. I mainly use mech mods because they're durable, can take multiple types of batteries (the telescope kind) and are pretty inexpensive. But I wouldn't mind trying something new.

    I have only used regulated mods. I doubt I'll ever advance into the ultra experienced mech mods vaper. For me I'm on a long vape journey and not in a hurry to get there.

    I have one mechanical and one kayfun. I wanted and needed to know how to use these. I don't use them often. I use vision spinners and smok VVs. I've not been able to buy anything else yet. I don't know if the spinners and smoks are considered regulated or not? But I use them every day.

    Howdy Mad-Vapeys!

    I started with regulated devices, and have graduated to "MOAR POWER" over the past 18-19 months. I have acquired a few mech mods, just to be in a position of preparedness. I was using one of those mechs last evening, and maybe because it was new, maybe because I'd loaded a fresh coil, but it was an INCREDIBLY SMOOTH vape experience.

    I don't build micro-ohm coils (0.5-1.5 is my range), but I am REALLY careful to watch which battery is getting used with which coil, even in a regulated mod.

    In my grand scheme of vaping, I think I still prefer the regulated devices. The hit is the same from a fully-charged battery to an almost-dead battery.


    And thanks, Crowedude/Mad Vapes for your contests!!!!
