    A couple weeks ago, I scored a Mini from the classies. I wont bore you with the epic journey that led me there; Long story short, the REO Mini unseated my Darwin (of all things) as my daily-driver. For the past couple weeks, it's been pretty much the only PV in my collection to get any serious face-time with me.

    I did get side-tracked with an Ali'i for a few days, and I learned from it that it was entirely practical to go to 5-ish volts with the NiMH batts that Madvapes sells. And then, I squealed with delight to find that those batteries would work in a REO Grand! The Mini had clearly shown me that the build quality and durability of the REOs is a fair bit ahead of the Ali'i. So, when one of my Xmas gifts turned out to be a wad of twenties, I simply had to see what Rob had up on the site. I let out another squeal of delight when I saw that there was a Grand available in the same colour combo as my Mini. My co-workers hate me.. :)

    So without further ado, my matched set of REOs:

    I'd say that the number-one thing I love about these is that they've freed me from screwing around with cartos, tanks, dripping (actually, I still occasionally do this for flavour variety) and managing all those fiddly bits. I keep spare supplies around, but the most I've done while away from home lately is to pop a fresh battery in.

    These things have made my workflow for vaping as simple as it was to smoke. I refill the juice bottle every morning, charge batteries over night, and do very little but vape in between. When I smoked I used a Zippo. Filling it was very similar to loading up a carto. Plus, it was another simple, reliable, purpose-built machine. I sense a theme. Ha.

    Thanks Rob!

    Congrats Rusty!! It's good that you got the matching set and found them so good that it replaced your Darwin. Hear a lot of stories about how the REO has been their main PV and unseated their VV devices. Great combo by the way, have the same for my Grand.

    Have to add my congrats from one new REOnaut to another - REOs = bliss! And many thanks to all the REO vets in this forum who are always willing to assist and share. I definitely should have joined ECF sooner instead of just researching all this time... What a great group of folks :)
