    Lol! As soon as I had one in hand I added a bunch more to the cart :) I think I have 4 of the 18650 now and 2 of the 18350s for stealth tank vaping. Or maybe it is 5 of the 18650s... I might have another on a boat headed my way. Will know in a week or two I guess :D

    I went pretty much the same route heh. I started with regulated mods (anybody remember the Evod and the good old MVP haha), but a couple years ago got a couple Stingray X clones. I had ditched the Kayfun tanks and was using a Derringer RDA all the time, and the size and convenience of the setup was awesome. I retired them early last year though after having a scare in the warehouse at work. Somehow, the firing button unlocked in my pocket. I didn't notice until all of a sudden I felt my leg burning BADLY. There was no place safe to throw it, so I unscrewed the battery cap to make it stop, and burnt the crap out of my hands doing it. I was pretty careful with my mechs, but just the thought of an accident like that being able to happen to anyone, and I put it back in the drawer and pulled out my old Sigelei Mini again. Now that I have DNA devices, the mechs are just being kept strictly for emergency backups.

    I don't limit myself to any one type of device. I have too much good gear to give up on any of it. I love using all of my gear from tiny little 14500 mechs and tanks up to dna squonkers and monster 30 mm tanks on a 26650 dna mod.

    I still love the feel of a good mech switch as part of my vape. The only thing that has changed for me over time is that my dripper setups for on the go have become squonkers - mech or regulated, just whatever I'm in the mood for.

    I save dripping for at home now as I prefer the convenience of a squonker or occasional tank when I'm not at home. But at home I love to relax with a few different setups on hand and a good tube and dripper are always close by. It is just a different experience that I've always enjoyed and probably always will.

    My last 2 mechanical mods. they dont get much use but I love them. I had quite a few of them back when they were the only high power option. Kind of miss that era when it was more of a hobby. The high maintenance of them ended with me smoking again when I got too busy to devote the time to them. So I prefer the convenience of the new high power devices and drop in coils, and without them I probably wouldn't have come back to e cigs.

    I'm not in the market (mech are all I use and I have plenty) but I'd love to see some new mech's that aren't squonkers. It seems like all the creativity just stopped as the new, high powered, low price options have flooded the market.

    Still lovingly mechs. Love the notion that if my gear breaks down I can troubleshoot and repair it on the fly. I entertain brief flirtations with regulated mods, but always come back to mechs. Vaping is as much about building and DIY for me as it is about inhaling vapor. A guy needs hobbies :D

    I started out with regulated and factory coils, only reason why I looked into rebuilding and Mech's was due to the Deeming Reg's. Once I did I'm pretty much exclusively Mechs and rebuilding now. Every now and again I'll slum it with my DNA200 Mod, that will last maybe a couple of hours at most. For me Mech's provide the smoothest and most satisfying Vape that regulated cannot fulfill. I'm more into high end Mech's now and in the process of rotating the lesser grade and clones out of my collection.

    Will I go back to Regulated Mod's? I'm sure not going to say never but it's very highly unlikely. Bottom line though is this, what ever works for you for that is the key. We're here to stay off the Stinkies and the wonderful thing about Vaping is it's versatility, there's no one size fits all.
