    So far i am looking at the Alien, the Ijoy PD270 and the Eleaf Ikonn 220w. Kinda on a tight budget so any suggestions? Maybe i'm missing better options?
    I currently run a Ipower 80 but need something else as it's not enough to last a full day and would like to get one with replaceable batteries.
    Do not have an external charger just yet but will purchase hopefully shortly after mod.
    Thank you in advance.

    I'm a fan or the Smoant Battlestar, I use one every day and haven't had any issues with it.

    I have a friend that loves the kaos from sigeli. I am also hearing good things about the smok tpriv I think it is, its the one with leds all over it.
    But I am also curious about the captain you mentioned. If budget is a concern that may be your best bet as it comes with 2 20700 batts. And they seem to have a longer life than 18650 batt mods or so I hear from most folks that have em.

    My "beater" is a yosta livepor 160. $30us. 2* 18650.
    Great light weight mod for the price.

    Tesla nano 120 steampunk, got it recently & it's now my main mod.
    The alien is alright but I prefer this, solid as hell!

    If you like the Alien check out the SMOK GX2/4. Better finish and slimmer in 2 battery mode, plus can go nuts with 4 batts if you want. Got my first GX2/4 Gold kit for $60 US seller watching eBay, saw a red one for $60 yesterday - were 2 left don't know if still available. Usually seeing them $75 to $100. I passed on the red and have a 2nd GX2/4 this one in Blue coming $54.07 from closer to where they be made.;)

    At the moment, my two favorite mods are the IJOY Captain PD270 (dual 20700) and the Vaporesso Nebula (26650). I prefer the Nebula because it feels good in the hand, it uses a single battery that lasts a bit longer than my dual 18650 mods and its battery charges more quickly at 2A. Current favorite external charger is the XTAR SV2. Good luck finding a mod that lasts all day. I've yet to find one. LOL

    What do you put on top of 80w? Do you chain vape?

    I've narrowed my search to a Battlestar or a ikonn 220w i think. Big reason i was looking at the alien is it's compact which is huge for me as it'll be with me all day and a good chunk of the time in my pocket.

    I'd say the Battlestar is more reliable than the alien, my first alien crapped out but my second one is fine.
    Think with version b alot of the issues were fixed & the alien does feel great in the hand too!

    My Kanger Dripbox 60 works perfectly. Never tried the 160? The Lost Vape Therion BF is the Cadillac of squonkers! Some whine about the juice bottle/battery partition... Just leave the partition out, and swing the bottle forward when replacing the battery. Takes only seconds to swap-out.
